SC932A CS I/O to RS-232-DCE Interface The SC932A (FIGURE 1-1) is used to interface a Campbell Scientific datalogger to any modem that is configured with an RS-232 DCE (Data Communications Equipment) serial port. Features include: • True RS-232 signal levels. • Power for the SC932A is supplied from the 5 V supply on pin 1 of the datalogger’s CS I/O port. The SC932A will use the 5 V supply to power the RS-232 modem if needed. • Two-way (interactive) communication. The SC932A is frequently used with a short haul modem to communicate across a dedicated line made of two pairs of twisted wire with a shield. Section 3, Installation (p. 3), describes the details of this application using a short haul modem built by RAD. The SC932A is also commonly used with the satellite transmitters, cellular modems, and spread spectrum radios. The SC932A does not support one-way output or printer communication. Data transfer is blocked when pin 6 from the datalogger is high (SDE/printer enable). 1 SC932A CS I/O to RS-232-DCE Interface 2.

If the device has a 25-pin connector, a 9-pin female to 25-pin male adaptor is required (pn #15751). The SC932A ships with four screw jacks. They can be installed on both sides of each connector, allowing screws to be used to secure cables to the device. Proper transient protection should be installed to protect the computer and datalogger in areas where damage due to lightning is possible. If this is a RAD modem application, see Section 4.2, RAD Modem Wiring and Grounding (p. 4). 4. RAD Modem Application The SC932A is frequently used with a short range modem to communicate across a 4-wire, unconditioned dedicated line. Campbell Scientific offers a kit (pn #15770) that includes the SC932A, the 9- to 25-pin adaptor (pn #15751), and a mounting bracket (pn #6282). The bracket will mount the RAD, SC932A and adaptor to the back plate in a Campbell Scientific enclosure. This section describes using a short range asynchronous modem built by RAD*. * SRM - 5A RAD Modem RAD Data Communications Inc. 900 Corporate Drive Mahwah, NJ 07430 Tel: (201) 529-1100 Fax: (201) 529-5777 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.rad.com For transmission, the RAD modem uses a cable made of two pairs of twisted wires with a shield. Data rates up to 9600 bps are possible. The low voltage transmission levels minimize cross-talk between adjacent lines within the same cable. Data are transmitted and received at a balanced impedance, providing 3 SC932A CS I/O to RS-232-DCE Interface excellent immunity to circuit noise. TABLE 4-1 gives the data rate possible for several gage cables across several distances. TABLE 4-1.

Two-Way Communication When using Campbell Scientific’s datalogger support software to communicate through the SC932/RAD modem, set up the link as a direct connect between the datalogger and the desired COM port. Start two-way communication using the Connect button on the toolbar or the Connect button on the Connect window. 4.2 RAD Modem Wiring and Grounding FIGURE 4-2 shows a typical setup of the RAD modems. Installation is as follows: 1. Set the DCE/DTE switch on the back of the RAD modem connected to the SC932A to DCE. For a RAD modem connected to a PC, set the DCE/DTE switch to DCE. For a RAD modem connected to a serial printer, set the DCE/DTE switch to DTE. 2. Select a cable with two or more twisted pairs. A recommended direct burial rodent resistant cable is listed below. They also sell several gopher resistant cables for even greater protection. Company Anixter Tel: 847-677-2600 www.anixter.com 4 Part Number F-02P22BPN AWG. 22 3. Wiring connections are made as shown in FIGURE 4-2. Note wires labeled A and B are one twisted pair of the cable. Wires labeled C and D are the other twisted pair. 4. Transients induced on the communication line may damage any electronics connected at either end of the line. To decrease the chances for damage, spark gaps should be installed as shown in FIGURE 4-2. The SC932A CS I/O to RS-232-DCE Interface transient protection shown may be purchased from Campbell Scientific (pn #5563 shown in FIGURE 4-2, pn #6536 includes a plastic case, pn #6361 includes hardware for mounting to ground lug of Campbell Scientific enclosures models ENC10/12, ENC12/14, or ENC16/18). Spark gap wiring is straight through such that pin to pin continuity exists between the two modems. If the modems are installed entirely within a building, the transient spark gap protection is probably not needed. FIGURE 4-2. Installation of Spark Gap Protection 5 SC932A CS I/O to RS-232-DCE Interface Occasionally, a customer needs to transmit data across longer or smaller gage wires or at higher speeds than can be done with the RAD modem powered by the SC932A. RAD does sell a 9-volt power supply that will boost the signals enough to meet some of these more demanding applications. Please contact RAD for more information. 4.3 Testing RAD Modem Communication The modem communication link is divided into the following three sections: 1) RAD modem computer end, 2) cable from computer modem to datalogger modem, and 3) RAD modem datalogger end. When unable to establish communication with the datalogger, test each of the three sections. Before proceeding through the testing procedures, a terminal emulator software program such as HyperTerminal or Campbell Scientific’s Terminal Emulator (included with PC200W, PC400, and LoggerNet) must be used to communicate through the COM port of the computer. Once the emulator program is set up, testing can proceed as follows: 1. Disconnect the four conductor cables from the SRM-6A RAD modem at the computer end. Jumper the XMT + to RCV + and jumper the XMT – to RCV –. This creates a transmit loop which allows any key pressed at the computer keyboard to be seen on the screen. If the key pressed is not seen, check the following: COM port configuration, 25-pin cable from the computer to the modem and the RAD modem. 2. Reconnect the four conductor cables to the modem at the computer end and disconnect the cable from the modem at the datalogger end. Twist together the XMT + wire and RCV + wire, twist together the XMT – wire and the RCV – wire. Repeat the process of step 1 by pressing a key on the computer keyboard. If the key pressed is not returned, then the cable from the modem at the computer to the datalogger modem is defective and will need to be repaired or replaced. 3. If steps 1 and 2 pass, the modem at the datalogger is suspect. Disconnect the modem from the SC932A and bring the modem to the computer site. Attach the modem to the computer, and repeat step 1 by jumpering the terminals of the modem and pressing a key on the computer keyboard. If the above tests pass and communication to the datalogger still has not been established, perform tests 4, 5, and 6. 4. A 12 V lead acid battery supply should not be discharged below 11.76 V. If this occurs, the batteries will go into a deep discharge state and will need to be replaced. The CR10 will function properly on a battery voltage of 10 to 15 volts. Check the 12 V supply with a volt meter. 5. On the wiring panel of most Campbell Scientific dataloggers there is a terminal marked 5 V. Check the 5 V supply with a volt meter. This 5 V supply should be within a tenth of a volt. If not, it would indicate a problem. 6. To verify that the datalogger and its serial I/O port are working, try to access input memory locations using a laptop PC with the SC32B or the CR10KD Keyboard Display. If the datalogger passes tests 4, 5, and 6, then the SC932A is suspect and will need to be repaired or replaced. 6 Campbell Scientific Companies Campbell Scientific, Inc. 815 West 1800 North Logan, Utah 84321 UNITED STATES www.campbellsci.com • email@example.com Campbell Scientific Canada Corp. 14532 – 131 Avenue NW Edmonton AB T5L 4X4 CANADA www.campbellsci.ca • firstname.lastname@example.org Campbell Scientific Africa Pty.
