3.4 Wiring
Warning: Do not disconnect modules or wires unless power has been switched off or the area is known
to be non-hazardous. The devices may only be connected to the supply voltage shown on the type plate.
Attention:
1. Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your devices.
2. Calculate the maximum possible current in each power wire and common wire. Observe all electrical codes
dictating the maximum current allowable for each wire size.
3. If the current goes above the maximum ratings, the wiring could overheat, causing serious damage to your
equipment.
4. Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and device wiring paths must
cross, make sure the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.
5. Do not run signal or communications wiring and power wiring through the same wire conduit. To avoid
interference, wires with different signal characteristics should be routed separately.
6. You can use the type of signal transmitted through the wire to determine which wires should be kept
separate. The rule of thumb is that wiring sharing similar electrical characteristics can be bundled together.
7. You should separate input wiring from output wiring.
8. It is advised to label the wiring to all devices in the system.
3.4.1 Grounding
Grounding and wire routing help limit the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Run the
ground connection from the ground pin on the power module to the grounding surface prior to connecting devices.
3.4.2 Redundant Power Inputs
The device has two sets of DC power inputs on the 4-pin terminal block located on top of the device. Follow the
steps below to wire the power input on the terminal block.
1. Insert the Terminal Block connector into the keyed receptacle on the SDS.
2. Insert the negative/positive wires into the V- and V+ terminals, respectively.
3. To keep the wires from pulling loose, use a small flat-blade screwdriver to tighten the wire-clamp screws on
the front of the terminal block connector.

Serial Settings
This page lets you configure serial port parameters, serial communications modes, data packing options, and
event notifications.
Label
Description
Port Alias
Enables the device to easily identify the serial devices connected to it.
Enter an identifying name to be identified by the connected device.
Baudrate
The rate at which data is transferred over the serial link. When setting to
9600bps, the serial port will transfer at a maximum of 9600 bits per
second. From the dropdown select a rate of 110 bps to 560800 bps.
Parity
Parity is a simple form of error detection which guards data on the cable
between the connected devices and the serial port.
The available Parity options include:
None: no parity checking is performed, and the parity bit is not
transmitted.
Odd: the number of mark bits in the data is counted, and the parity bit is
asserted or unasserted to obtain an odd number of mark bits.
Even: the number of mark bits in the data is counted, and the parity bit
is asserted or unasserted to obtain an even number of mark bits.
Mark: the parity bit is always set to mark signal condition (logical 1)
Space: the last transmitted data bit will always be a logical 0.
Data Bits
Choose the number of data bits to transmit: 7 or 8. Data is transmitted
as a series of seven or eight bits (five and six bit data formats are used
rarely for specialized communications equipment).

SDSTX3110-12x-LRT-B User Guide
Description
Stop Bits
Choose the number of bits used to indicate the end of a byte. You can
configure data bytes to be 1 or 2(1.5). If stop bits is 1.5, the stop bit is
transferred for 150% of the normal time used to transfer on bit. Both the
computer and the peripheral device must be configured to transmit the
same number of stop bits.
Flow Control
Serial communications consists of hardware flow control and software
flow control, so called because the control is handled by software or
hardware. XOFF and XON is software flow control, while RTS/CTS or
DTR/DSR is hardware flow control.
Choose XOFF to tell the computer to stop sending data; then the
receiving side will send an XOFF character over its Tx line to tell the
transmitting side to stop transmitting.
Choose XON to tell the computer to begin sending data again; then the
receiving side will send an XON character over its Tx line to tell the
transmitting side to resume transmitting. In hardware flow control mode,
when the device is ready to receive data, it sends a CTS (Clear To
Send) signal to the device on the other end. When a device
has something it wants to send, it will send a RTS (Ready To Send)
signal and waits for a CTS signal to come back its way. These signals
are sent apart from the data itself on separate wires.
Interface
Choose an interface for your serial device. Available interfaces include
RS-232, RS-422, RS-485(2-wires), and RS-485(4-wires).
After a Virtual COM has been mapped to a port, changes to the serial
settings of that port (e.g., from RS232 to RS422) should not be made.
Performance
Throughput: guarantees highest transmission speed.
Latency: guarantees shortest response time.
Delimiter Settings
Serial to Ethernet / Ethernet to Serial: For advanced data packing
options, you can specify delimiters for Serial to Ethernet and / or
Ethernet to Serial communications. You can define up to four delimiters
(00~FF, Hex) for each way. The data will be hold until the delimiters are
received or the option.
Flush Serial to Ethernet data buffer times out. 0 means disable.
Factory default is 0.
Flush Data Buffer After: The received data will be queuing in the buffer
until all the delimiters are matched. When the buffer is full (4K Bytes) or
after "flush S2E data buffer" timeout the data will also be
sent. You can set the time from 0 to 65535 seconds.
Flush Ethernet to Serial Data
Buffer After
Enter 0 - 65535 milliseconds as the amount of time to wait to “flush
E2S”. The received data will be queueing in the buffer until all the
delimiters are matched. Ehen the buffer is full (4K bytes) or after “flush
E2S data buffer” timeout, the data will be sent.
Force TX Interval time
Force TX interval time is to specify the timeout when no data has been
transmitted. When the timeout is reached or TX buffer is full (4K Bytes),
the queued data will be sent. 0 means disable.
The factory default value is 0.
The received data will be queueing in TX buffer until TX interval time is
timeout or TX buffer is full (4K bytes), the data will also be sent.
The value 0 means disable.

Model (SDSTX3110-124-LRT-B shown above).
Port Alias
Enter the port number that modem is connected to.
Interface
Choose an interface for your serial device. Available interfaces include
RS-232, RS-422, RS-485(2-wires), and RS-485(4-wires),
After a Virtual COM has been mapped to a port, changes to the serial settings
of that port (e.g., from RS232 to RS422) should not be made.
Baud Rate
Choose a baud rate in the range between 1200 bps and 460800 bps.
Data Bits
Choose the number of data bits to transmit. You can configure data bits to be
7 or 8. Data is transmitted as a series of seven or eight bits (five and six bit
data formats are used rarely for specialized communications equipment).
Stop Bits
Choose the number of bits used to indicate the end of a byte.
You can configure stop bits to be 1 or 2(1.5). If Stop Bits is 1.5, the stop bit is
transferred for 150% of the normal time used to transfer one bit. Both the
computer and the peripheral device must be configured to transmit the same
number of stop bits.
Chose the method of detecting errors in transmission. Parity control bit
modes include None, Odd, Even, Mark, and Space.
Parity
None: parity checking is not performed and the parity bit is not transmitted.
Odd: the number of mark bits in the data is counted, and the parity bit is
asserted or unasserted to obtain an odd number of mark bits.

Mark: the parity bit is always set to the mark signal condition (logical 1).
Space: the last transmitted data bit will always be a logical 0
Serial communication consists of hardware flow control and software flow
control, so called as the control is handled by software or hardware.
XOFF and XON is software flow control while RTS/CTS or DTR/DSR is
hardware flow control.
Flow Control
Choose XOFF to tell the computer to stop sending data; then
the receiving side will send an XOFF character over its Tx line
to tell the transmitting side to stop transmitting.
Choose XON to tell the computer to begin sending data again; then the
receiving side will send an XON character over its Tx line to tell
the transmitting side to resume transmitting. In hardware flow control mode,
when the device is ready to receive data, it sends a CTS (Clear To Send)
signal to the device on the other end.
When a device has something it wants to send, it will send a RTS (Ready To
Send) signal and waits for a CTS signal to come back its way. These signals
are sent apart from the data itself on separate wires.
Force TX Interval Time
Force TX interval time is to specify the timeout when no data has been
transmitted. When the timeout is reached or TX buffer is full (4K Bytes), the
queued data will be sent. 0 means disable. Factory default value is 0.
Performance
Throughput: This mode optimized for highest transmission speed.
Latency: This mode optimized for shortest response time.

6. Troubleshooting
This section lists some common problems, their causes, and potential recovery steps. Note that any unauthorized
repairs or modifications will void the SDS warranty.
6.1 FAQs
Q1. What is meant by “5 x redundant hosts”? Does it mean 5 x serial port device?
A1. “5 x redundant host” mean the maximum number of connections is 5 redundant host PCs connect via
Ethernet to the SDS device, with 5 redundant host PCs (VCOM, TCP server, TCP client; or 4 redundant host PCs
in UDP mode.
Q2. Can you explain the "Auto Scan" button?
A2. When you click the “Auto Scan” button, the system will automatically scan ports 4000 to 65535, and check
which port is free. For example, if port 4000 is free, the control port number will be set to 4001.
Q3. What is the UDP mode used for?
A3. UDP mode is different from TCP mode; UDP does not need to establish connection for data transmission.
A UDP listening port is just for receiving data from the network. If you send data to a UDP listening port, it is used
for receiving. If you want to send data to a destination host, you can write data to the serial port, and the data will
be sent to the destination host and port.
Q4. What is the "Disconnect" button used for?
A4. The Disconnect button lets you manually disconnect the TCP client connection from the TCP Server.
Q5. On initial install I get an “unsigned driver” message. What does it mean and is it OK to proceed?
A5. When you connect a new hardware device to your computer, Windows tries to find and install a software
driver for the device. You may see a notification that a driver is unsigned.
► Windows will alert you with a message if a driver is unsigned, was signed by a publisher that hasn't verified its
identity with a certification authority, or has been altered since it was signed and released. For example, the
message Windows requires a digitally signed driver displays if a driver lacks a valid digital signature, or was
altered after it was signed, can't be installed on 64-bit Windows.

6.2 Procedure
If the SDS device fails, isolate and correct the failure by performing the following steps.
1. If the SDS does not turn on and no LEDs light, then the SDS or the power source may be damaged, or the
SDS does not have power. Make sure that the power source is properly connected to the SDS. Make sure the
power adapter is connected to a functioning electrical outlet.
2. Verify the steps in section 3.4 Wiring on page 19. Verify the steps in section 3.5 Connection on page 20.
See section 2.1.2 SDSTX3110-121-LRT-B on page 12 for LED descriptions.
3. If the SDS does not respond even though it is functioning. Verify that the SDS is powered up; the serial cable is
correct and undamaged, and that the serial port settings are correct. Verify the cable pinouts, try a different serial
cable, and then try a different port on the SDS.
4. Check recent notifications. See Notification tab on page 30 or 4.2.5 on page 46.
5. If the SDS is not discovered, verify that the PWR LED is lit. If the Status LED is not lit, check the firmware
version. If the SDS firmware has been upgraded from the factory default, reset the SDS to its factory defaults.
Cycle power on the box and wait approximately 30 seconds. Verify that the SDS and the PC are on same subnet.
6. If the Web browser does not display, check the Web connection. Verify that a supported browser being used. If
not, install and use a supported browser. Use Ping to verify the connection. If ping fails, verify that the subnet
mask, Gateway address, and IP address are OK.Correct the PC setup and then retry. If ping is OK, check if IE is
set up to use a proxy server. If so, disable the proxy server and retry.
7. Make sure that the application is set to use the correct COM port number. Verify that the COM port(s) shows up
in the PC’s Device Manager.
8. If you are having problems with changing the serial interface settings:
With a VCOM set up to a serial port, and a DB9 cable connected to a serial device, changing the interface type
(e.g., from RS232 to RS422) will hang the SDS unit. The unit can be pinged but will not connect to the SDSManager or the web. The SDS unit must be power reset to restore the connection. This occurs if the change is
made from the SDS-Manager or the Web UI. This applies to both theSDSTX 3110-121-LRT-B and SDSTX3110124-LRT-B.
Once a VCOM connection has been set up, do not make serial port changese.
For reference, once you have a VCOM set up to a serial port, a DB9 cable connected to a serial device and an
application running over the VCOM connection, changes to the serial settings are blocked by the software.
After a Virtual COM has been mapped to a port, changes to the serial settings of that port (e.g., from RS232 to
RS422) should not be made.
9. Check the TN website for updated firmware; upgrade if available. See Upgrade Firmware tab on page 33.
