4.1
Identifying the DX-LAN Card Type
Dionex ships PeakNet-PA systems with the following types of DX-LAN
cards:
•
ISA Plug-and-Play card (P/N 052351)
•
PCI Plug-and-Play card (P/N 052350)
•
PCI Plug-and-Play card for 10BASE-T only (P/N 056908)
Before proceeding, check the card's part number and Figure 1 to
determine which type of card you have.

Installing the Computer DX-LAN Card
4.2
Installing the DX-LAN Card in the Computer
To prevent electrostatic discharge from damaging the DX-LAN card's
electronic components, use an electrostatic grounding strap during
the installation. If one is not available, do the following: before
removing the card from its anti-static bag, touch the computer's metal
frame to discharge any static electricity from your body.
1. Turn off the computer and disconnect its power cord.
2. Remove the computer cover.
3. Locate an empty expansion slot into which the DX-LAN card will fit.
Use the type of slot appropriate for the card (either ISA or PCI). If
several slots are empty, leave as much space as possible around each
installed card to ensure adequate air circulation.
4. Unscrew and remove the metal filler bracket that covers the rear
panel opening for the selected expansion slot. Save the screw.
5. Carefully slide the DX-LAN card into the slot, aligning the card's
metal mounting bracket with the expansion slot opening on the rear
panel.
6. Align the card's bottom edge connectors with the connectors on the
motherboard. Firmly push the card into the motherboard connectors
until the card is fully seated.
7. Use the saved screw to secure the card's metal mounting bracket to
the expansion slot.
8. Replace the computer cover and any cables you removed.
DO NOT TURN ON THE COMPUTER until after the DX-LAN network is
connected (see Section 5) and the power is turned on to at least one
of the DX-800 analyzer modules. This ensures that correct
communication is established between the DX-LAN card and the DX800 Analyzer modules.

Connecting the DX-LAN Network
The DX-LAN network consists of a PeakNet-PA workstation and the devices in
each DX-800 analyzer channel. For example, a network might consist of a
workstation, a component controller, a detector, a pump, and an EG40-PA eluent
generator.
Each device (including the workstation) must be equipped with a DX-LAN
interface card, and either a BNC connector or a 10BASE-T RJ-45 (telephonestyle) connector. The channel’s AE80 enclosure is equipped with either two BNC
connectors (In and Out) or one 10BASE-T RJ-45 connector.
A DX-LAN network can include 10BASE-T devices only, BNC devices only, or a
combination of 10BASE-T and BNC devices. The installation procedure varies,
depending on the type(s) of DX-LAN devices on the network.
•
For an overview of how to connect a 10BASE-T network, see Section 5.1.
•
For an overview of how to connect a BNC network, see Section 5.2.

The 10BASE-T DX-LAN cable is a Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair
cable. Do not substitute a cable of an inferior grade. Using an
incorrect cable will cause a device to lose communication with the
host computer.
When using 10BASE-T cabling, you must install a hub. If you simply
plug the 10BASE-T cable from a device into the connector on the
computer’s DX-LAN card, the connection will not work.

Setting Up the Database
8
Setting Up the Database
After each run, PeakNet-PA automatically exports sample data to an ODBCsupported database. The database information is then reported to the InTouch
program where it is displayed in the Sample Results and the Component Trending
screens. The data is also used for printing scheduled reports.
For correct operation of PeakNet-PA, a database program that supports ODBC
(for example, Microsoft Access) must be installed on the PeakNet-PA
workstation. In addition, PeakNet-PA must be set up as a data source for the
database.
If Access is not already installed on the workstation, run the Microsoft Office
setup and select the following options:
•
Microsoft Access
•
Converters, Filters, and Data Access
If you plan to use another ODBC-supported database, follow the installation
instructions supplied with that database.
After the database and ODBC driver are installed, an ODBC icon will appear in
the Windows Control Panel.
Optimization Note:
The PeakNet-PA database file (peaknet-pa.mdb) is copied to the
c:\peaknet\database folder during PeakNet-PA setup. This database file
can become quite large over time. If a drive with more free space than the
C: drive is available, move peaknet-pa.mdb to the alternate drive before
completing the following data source setup procedure.
For example, if the computer has a C: drive with 1GB of free space and a
D: drive with 6GB of free space, move peaknet-pa.mdb to a folder on the
D: drive (for example, D:\PNdatabase).
You can also specify an alternate drive for storing data files. See
“MainMenu Program - Selecting Options” in the online Help for details.
