Aries® to ASC/3 Direct Connect Settings
Reference: AN2070A
Date: 19 September 2007
This Application Note tells you how to make a direct serial connection between an ASC/3 Controller
and Aries®.
On the ASC/3 Controller
• Use PORT 2 or PORT 3A
• Set the Protocol to NTCIP
• Set the Baud Rate to the same Baud Rate as Aries®
• Set the Port Protocol Parity to 8, N, 1
NOTE: These are NOT the same settings as the Aries® Comm Server
• Set the Comm Port Address to 1
NOTE: Make sure that you set this address to 1.
• Use a Null Modem Cable (refer to the illustration below)
In Aries®
• Set the Baud Rate
• Set the Channel to Parity 7, E, 1
NOTE: These are NOT the same as the ASC/3 Port Settings
You can use Aries® and an Autoscope® Null Modem Cable to communicate with the ASC/3 via PORT 3A,
but that cable will NOT operate with PORT 2. However, if you use a Standard RS232 Cable and a Null
Modem Adaptor, this mixture of cables can communicate with one of the two ports: PORT 3A or PORT 2.
You can also build the custom cable shown above.

Aries® to ASC/3 Direct Connect Settings
Aries® uses NTCIP protocol with 8 bits to communicate with an ASC/3 Controller. Because Aries® may
use a communications channel to connect to both an ASC/3 and controllers made before the ASC/3
(for example, an ASC/2), you MUST set the communications channel of these other controllers to 7 bits
with parity. When Aries® communicates with an ASC/3, it overrides the framing to 8 bits no parity.
