Keyboards 5

Keyboards

The “PC” keyboards, including the EPC (101/102-key) and the PC/+ (106/107key), are similar in style and feature a number of key groups.

The alphanumeric keypad is the main typewriter keypad, while the function key group lies along the top of the keyboard and can be programmed locally or downloaded from the host. The numeric keypad is the calculator-style set of keys on the right-hand side of the keyboard, used to enter numeric data.

The cursor and edit keypads, located to the left of the numeric keypad, allows users to edit text and move around in the document. The communication key group, above the edit keypad, is used to control communications with the host or printer.

The ASCII keyboard varies from the PC keyboard styles mainly in that it features 28 edit keys and 16 function keys.

For each keyboard, there is a set of local “hot-keys.” They perform a variety of terminal functions, such as “Print Screen” and “Enter Setup.” (See Appendix A for a complete list of local functions.)

8 Introduction

Communications

This terminal is equipped with three ports. The two serial ports are intended for connecting to either a host/modem or a serial printer. The remaining port is a

Centronics-compatible printer port. The port you use as the printer port depends on whether you have a serial or a parallel interface to the printer.

The first host/printer serial port (SES1-EIA) can communicate with your computer at a baud rate of 110 to 38,400 baud (bits per second). The second host/printer serial port (SES2-AUX) can communicate at speeds from 110 baud to 19,200 baud.

You have the choice of using either the second serial port or the parallel printer port as your printer interface. Refer to the following sections for further information on these ports.

Flow Control

Because devices can receive data faster than they can process it, data flow control

(selectable in the COMM1 & AUX/COMM2 menus of Setup) should be used to prevent data loss. Software flow control relies on the Xon and Xoff characters (“g” and

“e” characters in PC Term Emulation) to indicate when the terminal is able or unable to store further data. The Xon signal transmits the DC1 character (11h) and the Xoff signal transmits DC3 (13h).

When Xon/Xoff in the COMM1 Setup menu for Comm 1 is “DC1/DC3,” the terminal issues an Xoff character, indicating to the host that it should stop transmitting data. The terminal will then continue to process data until its receive buffer is empty.

It will then issue an Xon character to the host, indicating that it can resume sending data to the terminal.

If the Xon/Xoff is “none” in Setup, the terminal will continue to accept characters into its receive buffer until it is full. Any additional characters sent after the receive buffer is full will be lost. Additional characters will be lost. Xon-Xoff protocol must also be set on the host computer or printer for proper handshaking.

Communications 9

In addition to software “receive” flow control (Xon/Xoff), the serial host/printer ports support “receive” hardware flow control. The SES1-EIA port has an outgoing

DTR (Data Terminal Ready) signal. If “Xon/Xoff” is “DTR” in Setup, and the terminal’s receive buffer fills to the level mentioned above, the terminal will set the

DTR signal low to inform the host (serial) device to stop sending data.

Host Port 1

This port, labeled “SES1-EIA,” is designed for connection to the host (computer or modem) via a 25-pin D-shell (DB25) female connector. This port uses an RS-232-C communication interface, is configured as a DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) device, and can operate from 110 to 38,400 baud. The pins supported are shown below:

Host Port 1 Pin Assignments

10 Introduction

Host/Printer Port 2

This port, labeled “SES2-AUX,” is designed to connect to a host connection

(computer or modem) or a serial printer, and can operate from 110 to 19,200 baud.

This port uses an RS-232-C interface via a DB25 female connector, and is configured as a DCE (Data Communication Equipment) device. The pin assignments for this port are shown below:

Host/Printer Port 2 Pin Assignments

Refer to the Installation chapter for details on the connection of all ports to serial devices (hosts, modems, or printers).

Communications 11

Parallel Printer Port

This port, labeled “PAR,” is designed for connection to a parallel printer, which has a

Centronics interface with a 25-pin D-shell female connector. This port, unlike the others, is a uni-directional device—it only serves to output data to the printer and cannot receive data. The pins and signals supported are shown below:

Parallel Port Pin Assignments

* These signals are held high, in an inactive state.

If you have opted to use a parallel printer, but it is not connected, an error message will appear on the status line when any PRINT operation is done. This error will not affect your terminal’s operation. Any activity that updates the top status line (such as pressing the CAPS LOCK key) will clear the error message.

Terminal to Modem (DCE) or Host

Refer to the diagram below to understand why a null modem adapter may be needed when connecting the second serial port (SES2-AUX) to a modem or a DCE host. The first serial port will connect directly without a null modem since it is a DTE device.

Installation

This section provides a “walk-through” approach to the installation of your terminal.

This will enable you to physically connect the terminal to a printer and a host computer/modem, as well as to configure the Setup menu to suit your requirements and preferences.

The procedures described here are among the most common. Described here are conventional setups, with or without a printer. These steps may need to be adjusted to meet your requirements.

STEP 1 – Know Your Devices

The first step in our installation process will be to determine what type of serial ports you are connecting to the terminal. The Communications section in the Introduction chapter describes the differences between a DTE and DCE serial device. Determine what type of devices you are using (a DTE host, a DCE modem, a DTE printer, a parallel printer, etc.).

13

14 Installation

STEP 2 – Physical Connections

Depending on the types of serial interfaces of your devices, you may need one or more

“null modem” adapters to communicate properly.

First, refer to the Common Setups diagrams later in this chapter. If one of these setups matches your needs, make the connections as shown in the diagrams by referring to the Host/Printer Connection Guide shown later in this chapter. Each cable connection in the diagram (the lines with arrows on each end) has a letter next to it.

The letters correspond to the letters in the Host/Printer Connection Guide. If these setups don’t apply, choose the connections in the Host/Printer Connection Guide that are appropriate.

Your physical connections are now complete.

STEP 3 – No Printer Option

If you did not opt to install a printer (do not complete connection E, F, or G), you must set the “Printer Use” selection in the GLOBAL Setup menu to “None”.

STEP 4 – Know Your Serial Port(s) Protocol

Consult your system administrator to find out the communication settings on all the serial devices you are connected to, including EIA (or Aux) baud, data bits, stop bits, parity, parity checking on/off, and flow control protocol. This could include a host/modem, or a serial printer.

STEP 5 – Communications Setup Selections 15

STEP 5 – Communications Setup Selections

To complete this step, you must recall the letters next to the connections that you made in Step 2.

The procedures below correspond directly to the individual connections made.

Notice that only certain connection procedures are to be followed, not all of them.

For example, if you have made connections “C” and “F” to a modem and a serial printer, then follow connection procedures “C” and “F” below.

Only follow those steps that apply to your connections (A-G).

To access the Setup menu, press SHIFT-SETUP on an ASCII keyboard or Shift-Print

Scrn on a PC+ keyboard.

Connection A: Host DCE

1.

2.

Enter the Setup menu.

In the COMM menu, set the proper communications settings for the EIA Baud,

EIA Data Format, EIA Parity Check, EIA Recv, and EIA Xmt selections. See the Setup chapter for more information on the individual settings.

Connection B: Host DTE

1.

2.

Enter the Setup menu.

In the AUX/COMM2 menu, select the proper communication settings. See the

Setup chapter for more information on the individual settings.

16 Installation

Connection C: RS-232 with Modem

1. Follow all procedures of Connection A.

Connection D: RS-232-C with Modem

1. Follow all procedures of Connection B.

Connection E: RS-232-C Printer

1.

2.

In the GLOBAL Setup menu, set the “Printer Use” selection to “SES1/SER”.

Follow procedure of Connection B, step 2.

Connections F and G: Parallel Printer

1.

2.

Enter the Setup menu.

In the GLOBAL Setup menu, set the “Printer Use” selection to either

“SES1/PAR” or “SES2/PAR” for single or dual host environment.

STEP 6 – Emulation Setup Selection

This step requires setting a selection in the Setup menu to configure the emulation of the “Terminal”. Determine which emulation your applications run with.

Enter the Setup menu. In the MODE menu, set the “Terminal” selection to match your emulation requirements.

STEP 7 – Additional Setup Options

At this point, you should proceed to the Setup chapter and continue to set up your own selections for any other parameters such as those for the display, keyboard, function/edit keys, and tabs.

STEP 8 – Save Parameters 17

STEP 8 – Save Parameters

Finally, remember to save your Setup parameters in permanent memory, so that they can be recovered if the terminal is powered down. When you exit the Setup menu, the prompt “Save parameters before exit? (Y/N)” appears. To save parameters select

“Y”. Another way to save parameters is to move the highlight bar over the “Save

Parameters” field in the EXECute menu and press the “space” bar.

Setup

Overview

Your terminal can be configured to operate in a variety of different modes to suit your needs and to conform with the requirements of your host computer. Operating parameters can be selected as described in the paragraphs that follow.

Setup Menu

The Setup menu allows you to select the emulation you wish to operate in, program your function keys, set tab stops and select operating parameters from your keyboard.

These parameters can also be downloaded from the host computer. Easy to read menus are available to help you select the operating parameters to suit your needs.

To enter the Setup Menu or toggle between host 1 and host 2, you need to invoke the following keystrokes, depending upon the type of keyboard being used. (See b elow.)

The names of the menus will be displayed on the top status line as follows:

EXEC1 GLOBAL COMM1 AUX/COMM2 KEYBOARD1 SCREEN1 VISUAL1 MODE1 TAB1 FUNCT1 BELL

The currently displayed menu is identified by highlighting its name on the top status line. ENTER and SHIFT-ENTER are used to move back and forth respectively through the menus. Moving from one menu selection to another can also be accomplished by pressing the first letter of the selection itself (e.g. "B" to get to the BELL menu or "M" to get to the MODE menu).

All but two Setup menu names have a number appended to them (1 or 2). This number represents which host port parameters are being shown. For example,

EXEC1 or SCREEN1 are showing setup parameters for host port 1. Those menu names with no numbers appended represent global parameters common to both host ports

Cursor Keystrokes for Movement Within the Setup Menu

or

– Used to move the cursor up and down within a menu.

The center line is highlighted and indicates the breakout of the character where the cursor currently rests. This implementation will save you time in locating a particular character by simply locating the cursor on the character in question and then activating the chart. The centered line on the chart represents that particular character.

For example, activating the ASCII Chart after powering up the terminal will result in

SPACE being highlighted as the screen memory initializes to SPACE.

NOTE TO INSTALLER

This equipment complies with the FCC Regulation for Class A devices, Subpart J of Part 15.

Shielded, grounded interface cables were used on all ports for FCC radiated emission testing.

The manufacturer is not responsible for any violation of the FCC Regulation for Class A devices that is caused by unauthorized modification of the equipment, or caused by equipment installation not in accordance with the instructions in this manual.

This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and may cause radio or television interference. All user equipment that interfaces with other products should be connected with shielded cables. (Contact a local dealer for more information on shielded cable assemblies and their availability.)

There is no guarantee that interference will not occur. If radio or television interference occurs

(this can be determined by turning the equipment off and on while the radio or television is on), the user is solely responsible for correcting the interference and is encouraged to take one or more of these measures:

1. Reorient the receiving antenna.

2. Relocate the equipment, or move the equipment away from the receiver.

3. Plug the equipment into a different outlet so the unit and receiver are on different branch circuits.

4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician.

It is also suggested that the user read the FCC booklet entitled How to Identify and Resolve

Radio-TV Interference Problems. The booklet is available from the U.S. Government

Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. (When ordering the booklet, specify stock number 04-000-00345-4.)

Site Preparation

The screen display geometry on terminal products is aligned using magnetic devices. External magnetic fields created by other types of electronic equipment, such as printers, in very close proximity to the terminal, may cause minor display distortion.

Examples of display distortion include:

þ

þ

þ

Shaky video

Wavy lines

Tilted display

This magnetic field interaction only occurs over a very short distance, normally less than twelve inches, and can be corrected by separating the equipment and/or slightly reorienting the display.
