1.1 Description
The AWS-8420 series workstations take advantage of modern
flat-panel displays for minimum size. The AWS-8420 offers two
types of passive backplane, 3 PCI / 4 ISA / 1 CPU (AWS8420TP/TP-T) and 8 ISA (AWS-8420T/T-T) slots, 250 watt
power supply, data-entry/function-key keypads, a slim floppy
drive, and two spaces for a hard drive and a slim CD-ROM. A
high-quality steel frame gives security and environmental
protection that meets the toughest industrial standards.
Versatile backplane supply
The backplanes were formed by four-layer PCBs with ground
and power planes for reduced noise and lower power-supply
impedence. They have LED power indicators for +5 V, +12 V,
-5 V and -12 V. The AWS-8420TP/-T contains three PCIcompatible slots, four PC/AT-compatible (ISA-bus) slots and
one dedicated slot for the CPU card.
Sealed-membrane tactile-response keypad
You can enter data with the workstation’s two convenient
sealed-membrane keypads, one with 60 data keys, the other
with 20 function keys. An external keyboard can be attached
through a connector on the front panel. A built-in keyboard
interface module merges keyboard and keypad signals into a
single output signal that acts like a standard IBM AT keyboard.
No special software or I/O ports are needed. (Refer to section
4.4 for a detailed description.)
2
AWS-8420T User's Manual
Note:
To use the keyboard and keypad
simultaneously, you must first connect the
keyboard connector on the backplane to the
keyboard connector on the CPU card, and then
connect the external keyboard jack to another
keyboard jack located next to the power supply.
If you connect the keyboard to the 5-pin DIN
connector on the CPU card, neither the
keyboard nor the keypad will work. The
keyboard must be connected to the jack behind
the front door.
Accessible and secure control panel
We have put all the workstation's controls at the front of the
unit for easy access. A door protects the controls from damage.
External controls are: power ON/OFF and reset switches, slim
floppy disk drive, slim CD-ROM drive and PS/2 port. Two
LEDs indicate power ON and HDD status. There is a control
to adjust the brightness or contrast of the LCD display.

2.3 Adding Cards
The PCI passive backplane accepts both PCI-bus and ISA-bus
CPU and I/O cards. We recommend all-in-one cards. They are
durable, and save valuable slot space by bundling a CPU card with
hard disk and floppy disk controllers, as well as serial and parallel
ports.
Open the top panel (see Section 2.2) and then slowly slide the card
in and carefully press it into the backplane socket. Secure it with a
screw to the top mounting bar. (See Fig. 2-3). Connect the wires.
Install additional cards as needed. When you have finished, reattach the cover.

2.4 Installing Optional Drives
The AWS-8420T provides space for three drives (one slim floppy
disk drive, one hard disk drive and one slim CD-ROM drive)
underneath the case. A front-facing floppy drive has already been
installed. You can access it from the FDD dust-resistant door
panel.
If you wish, you can add a 3.5" hard disk drive or a slim CD-ROM
drive above the front-facing floppy drive. Unscrew the drivemount
assembly from the body of the case, attach the drive with the
screws, and attach the ribbon connector. (See Figs. 2-4, 2-5, 2-6
and 2-7.) When you have added the drives, set the ribbon cables in
place and mount the drivemount assembly.

2.5 Connecting Cables
After inserting the CPU card into the chassis, connect the FDD,
CD-ROM and HDD cables to the CPU card. In addition to the
storage devices, three other cables need to be connected: the PS/2
mouse cable, keyboard cable and RS-232 cable for the touch
screen. The PS/2 mouse cable is used to connect the mouse signal
from the pfront panel PS/2 keyboard/mouse to the CPU card, as
shown below. There is a keyboard control board in the system
which integrates the keyboard signals. An internal keyboard cable
needs to be connected to the CPU card as shown below. If your
workstation is equipped with a touch screen, connect the touch
screen controller and CPU card through the RS-232 cable as
shown belows.

You can connect an external keyboard and mouse to the workstation. The first place to the keyboard and mouse is the PS/2 connector on the front panel, under the dust-protection door. You can
connect a PS/2 keyboard to the connector if you do not need a
mouse. Or use the Y-cable provided in the accessory box to
connect simultaneously a keyboard and a mouse. There are two
additional keyboard connectors in the back of the chassis as shown
in figure 2-10. You cannot connect two keyboards to the two
connectors in the back at the same time. You could connect a
keyboard to the front panel PS/2 connector and another to one of
the keyboard connectos at the back of the chassis at the same
time.

Macro Key
Programming
• Introduction
• Macro components
• Syntax
• How to use SFED842.COM
• Examples
3.1 Introduction
Our workstations are equipped with programmable function keys
(macro keys) that greatly enhance the operator interface. Macros,
far more powerful than batch files, automate the most commonly
used input sequences. They extended their functional reach to
within application programs.
3.2 Macro Components
The following article explains how to use and program the
function keys. The complete macro function consists of the
following elements:
Macro keys
Ten programmable macro keys that are located under the monitor
screen of your workstation.
Macro EEPROM
Holds the key sequences that are activated when the corresponding
macro key is pushed.
Macro programming utility
Locate the program SFED842.COM in the Function Key Utility
diskette for function key programming. The SFED software
provides an edit function to produce an ASCII file that contains
keystroke sequences for every macro key. After you have finished
editing the file, the program will ask you whether you want to save
the macro script and/or transmit it to the EEPROM. Macros
consist of keystroke sequences to automate the most common
procedures in your application. The way they function is much like
batch files (.BAT) under DOS, but there are some differences. In a
Macro you have to specify the ENTER key explicitly. Macros give
you the possibility to enter key sequences in an application that was
executed by the macro itself.
26
AWS-8420T User's Manual
3.3 Syntax
Macro definitions consist of ASCII characters or character codes
for special characters such as ALT, ENTER, SHIFT, F1, SF2, and
so on. These codes are predefined, and SFED842.COM will
display them on the screen for you. They are easily recognizable,
appearing between the square brackets ‘[‘ and ‘]’.
For example :
ALT represents [26]
ENTER represents [33]
In your macro script, you can enter ordinary text (ASCII
characters) or the code(s) of the required special character(s).
For example :
CD\TOOLKIT[33] means CD\TOOLKIT [ENTER]
For combination keystrokes (ALT/SHIFT/CTRL + another key)
enter the codes of the special characters, followed by
[90] (RELEASE).
For example:
ALT-F1 represents [26][44][90]
CRTL-C represents [28]C[90]
SHIFT-B represents [27]B[90]
Chapter 3 Macro Key Programming
27
Please refer to the following examples:
ALT-X represents [26]X[90] or [26]x[90].
ALT-F1 represents [26][44][90]
SHIFT-X represents [27]X[90]
SHIFT-F1 represents [27][44][90]
CTRL-X represents [28]X[90]
CTRL-F represents [28][44][90]
CTRL-ALT-DEL represents [28][26][41][90] (reboot)
CTRL-ALT-A represents [28][26]A[90]
CTRL-SHIFT-1 represents [28][27]1[90]
Another useful function is the DELAY instruction. You can instruct
the macro program to wait before executing the next keystroke.
SFED842.COM displays the codes that you can use for various
delays.
For example:
[86] - Wait for 10 seconds before executing next keystroke
[88] - Wait for 1 minute before executing next keystroke.
[26]A[90][86][26]B[90] means ALT-A, wait 10 seconds, ALT-B
28
AWS-8420T User's Manual
3.4 How To Use SFED842.COM

Input protection:
Protection against wrong polarity if the +24 V input voltage is
mistakenly reversed.
Output protection:
If for some reason the power supply fails to control itself, the
built-in over-voltage protection circuit will shut down the outputs to
prevent damage to external circuits. The trip point of the
crowbar circuit is approximately 5.7 ~ 7.0 V. The power supply will
go into hiccup mode under short circuit or overload
conditions, and will recover automatically when such conditions
cease to exist.
