VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
Getting Started
Getting Started
This chapter provides an overview of the Tektronix IntelliFrame Mainframe
family. It includes installation and configuration information on user-installed
options.
Product Description
The IntelliFrame Mainframes are intelligent, 13-slot, C-size, VXIbus Mainframes. They fully comply with the VXIbus Specification 1.4 requirements and
are VXIplug&play compatible. The mainframes can be configured as standard
benchtop or optional rackmount instruments. The mainframes have the following
features:
H
High output power supply
H
Intelligent cooling for installed modules
H
Super CoolerT (VX1420A)
H
High quality auto-configuration backplane
H
Enhanced Monitor
H
Front panel display (Optional for VX1410A)
H
EMI DIN shields for superior EMI protection
H
Optional adjustable rackmounts and cable trays
These features are explained in more detail in the following paragraphs.
Power Supply
The IntelliFrame Mainframe provides all VXIbus voltages at levels necessary for
the most demanding ATE applications. The power supply has a volt-ampere
capacity of 1783 VA with 875 watts usable by VXI instrument modules at any
one time (refer to Appendix A: Power Budget Worksheet). The mainframe
accommodates exclusively digital applications, exclusively analog applications,
or combinations of both.
The power supply plugs directly into the rear of the mainframe and has no cables
to disconnect. The power supply can be replaced in less than three minutes,
minimizing downtime. The power supply automatically sets the ranges for the
appropriate input voltage and frequency.
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
1–1
Getting Started
Intelligent Cooling
The IntelliFrame Mainframe provides optimal cooling for all installed modules.
The mainframe uses an intelligent, adaptive cooling scheme to efficiently remove
heat while maintaining quiet operation. The mainframe monitors the temperature
rise of the exhaust air above each module slot and automatically adjusts the fan
speed to keep the temperature rise to user specified temperature rise or less for
the each module. You can also manually set the fan to full speed to provide
maximum cooling.
Air is exhausted at the sides of the mainframe, allowing you to stack the
mainframe with other rackmount equipment. You don’t have to worry about
restricting airflow out of the top of the mainframe or creating a chimney effect.
Cooling is not wasted on empty slots. IntelliGuides automatically direct air to
only those slots containing modules; empty slots are shut off. The mainframe
directs airflow across each installed module from the bottom to the top of each
slot. Baffles balance the airflow from the front to back and across occupied slots
in the mainframe.
You can remove the air filter from the rear of the mainframe. The fans can be
replaced without disassembling the entire mainframe.
High Cooling
Backplane
The VX1420A Super Cooler has all the features of the VX1410A IntelliFrame
Mainframe, but with higher cooling capacity and very quiet operation. The
higher cooling fan operates at a low fan speed with equivalent airflow.
The IntelliFrame Mainframe has an auto configuration, solid-state backplane that
uses electronic jumpering of the IACK and BUS GRANT signal lines. There are
no jumpers to move or install on the backplane. This results in a high quality
backplane that is ideal for ATE systems that must be reconfigured frequently.
The EMI DIN shields are standard to provide superior EMI protection.
Full differential distribution of the CLK10 signals provides a clean timing source
for your VXIbus instruments.
Optional Rackmounts and
Cable Trays
You can order the IntelliFrame Mainframe with user-installed rackmounts and
cable trays. The cable trays provide a means to conveniently route cables from
the front of the modules to the rear of the mainframe. Options 1U and 2U cable
tray depths range from 1.75 to 6.0 inches. Install Option 1U to provide a
1.75-inch, 2.5-inch, or 4.25-inch deep cable tray. You can install Option 2U to
provide a 3.5-inch, 4.25-inch, or 6.0-inch deep cable tray.
The rackmount adapters let you recess the mainframe from the front panel
mounting surface at specified depths from 0.735 inches to 5.735 inches in
0.5-inch increments. Similarly, you can configure the mainframe to extend out of
the front of the rack at specified depths (0.57 inches to 5.57 inches in 0.5-inch
increments).
1–2
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
Getting Started
You can install the rackmount kits along with the cable trays to provide vertical
cable access to easily route cables to instruments above or below the mainframe
while keeping lead lengths as short as possible.
You can also install an optional Lexan door with the rackmount kit.
NOTE. If you choose to extend the mainframe out of the front of the rack, the
mainframe cannot accept a door.
Instructions for installing the cable trays begin on page 1–7; instructions for
installing the rackmounts kits begin on page 1–12.
Enhanced Monitor
Optional Front Panel
Display
Options and Upgrade Kits
The IntelliFrame Mainframe enhanced monitor lets you monitor the power
supply voltages, power supply currents, slot temperature rises, fan speeds, and
other VXIbus system activity via the VXIbus or a rear RS-232 interface.
The VX1410A Option 1M includes a 20-character alphanumeric display on the
front panel with scroll keys for manual viewing for mainframe status. The
VX1420A comes standard with this option.

Site Considerations
The IntelliFrame Mainframe is designed to operate on a bench or in a rackmount
environment. For proper cooling, allow at least 2 in (5.1 cm) of clearance on the
rear and sides of the mainframe. Determine how you will use your mainframe
with cable trays, and then follow the appropriate installation instructions. If you
ordered your mainframe with a cable tray option and rackmount option, install
the cable tray before installing the rackmount.
WARNING. To avoid personal injury, use care when lifting or moving the
mainframe to avoid personal injury while performing the installation procedures.
Cable Tray Installation
The IntelliFrame Mainframe comes a with a 0.75-inch cable access area on the
bottom of the mainframe. Use the following procedure to install your cable tray
option:
You will need a T-20 Torx and Phillips driver to install Options 1U or 2U.
Options 1U and 2U can be installed three different ways; without rails, with
rails, or with rails installed at 90_.
Figure 1–2 on page 1–8 and Figure 1–3 on page 1–9 show how to install
Option 1U (without rails, with rails, rails at 90_) to provide a cable tray depth of
1.75, 2.50, or 4.25 inches.
Figure 1–4 on page 1–10 and Figure 1–5 on page 1–11 show how to install
Option 2U (without rails, with rails, rails at 90_) to provide a cable tray depth of
3.50, 4.25, or 6.00 inches.
Both options come with butch plates to mount cable connectors at the rear of the
cable trays. The butch plate will not fit on Option 1U when the foot rails are not
used. You can modify the butch plate to accept cable connectors at the rear of the
mainframe. Specific instructions for modifying the butch plate are not given
since the locations, types, and size of connectors vary with each application.

Getting Started
Remote On/Standby
Configuration
The IntelliFrame Mainframe allows you to power on and power off the mainframe from the rear panel (passive monitor connector) as well as the front panel
On/Standby switch. Alternatively, you can disable the front panel On/Standby
switch.
NOTE. If you decide to bypass the front panel On/Standby switch, you should
configure the mainframe before installing the rackmount hardware. Refer to
Appendix B: Special Configuration Options and then return to this section to
continue the installation procedures.
The Enhanced Monitor allows you to power off the mainframe through VXI and
RS-232 commands. If you apply external power to the Enhanced Monitor, you
can you can also power on and off the mainframe using RS-232 commands.
NOTE. Disconnecting the power cord provides the mainframe’s voltage disconnect. Even when powered off by the On/Standby switch, the power supply circuits
are connected to primary power.
Front Panel SYSReset
Activation
IntelliFrame Mainframe provides you the ability to generate a backplane
SYSReset signal from the front panel. This feature allows you to reset the
complete VXI system without having to power down the mainframe. A
SYSReset activation is accomplished by pushing the right side (nonlighted side)
of the On/Standby power switch.
NOTE. If you decide to configure the front panel to SYSReset, you should
configure the mainframe before installing the rackmount hardware. Refer to
Appendix B: Special Configuration Options for activation of this feature and
then return to this section to continue the installation procedures.
Rackmount Installation
The procedures for installing the rackmount kits are similar for the Option 1R
and 2R kits. You can install Option 1R kit to either recess the mainframe inside
the rack or to protrude in front of the rack. However, you can only install the
door for the Option 2R kit so that the mainframe is recessed inside the rack.
The steps for installing the rackmount kits consist of installing the rackmount
hardware to the mainframe, and then installing the mainframe in the rack.
You will need the following tools to install the rackmount options:

Refer to Figure 1–6 and perform the following steps to install the rackmount kit
hardware:
1. Determine where you want the mainframe positioned in the rack (recessed
inside the rack or protruding in front of the rack).
If you want the mainframe installed protruding in front of the rack, position
the rackmount bracket as shown on the right side of Figure 1–6. If you want
to recess the mainframe in the rack, position the rackmount bracket as shown
on the left side of Figure 1–6.
2. Determine how far you want to recess or extend the IntelliFrame Mainframe
and install the rackmount adapter as shown using two 8-32 screws (included
with the kit). Repeat this step for the other bracket.
NOTE. To comply with VXIplug&play mounting specifications, position the
rackmount adapter at the mounting holes with the adjacent identifier keys (see
Figure 1–6). This results in 3.960 in (10.06 cm) from the module panel mounting
surface to the rack frame mounting surface.

Install the Mainframe
in the Rack
Use the following procedure to install the IntelliFrame Mainframe in the rack:
1. Identify the right and left slide-out track assemblies: find the date code label
on each assembly. The assembly to be mounted in the left side of the rack
(the side nearest the left side of the mainframe when it is mounted in the
rack) has a date code that ends with LH (for left hand). The right assembly
has a date code ending with RH.
2. Measure the distance between the front and rear rail of the rack.

3. Align the rear bracket to the right slide-out track as shown in Figure 1–7.
Note that the rear bracket has two pairs of mount-through holes. When
aligning the bracket and the track, select a pair of holes that mount the rear
bracket so the flange-to-flange distance (see Figure 1–7) matches the front
rail to rear rail spacing that you just measured in step 2.
NOTE. If necessary, refer to the rackmount kit instructions for detailed installation information.
4. Attach the rear bracket to the right slide-out track using two 10-32 screws
and a bar nut as shown in Figure 1–7. Leave the screws loose so that you can
adjust the overall length of the slide-out track assembly when installing the

Logical Address Switch
Settings
You can set the logical address of the mainframe with the switches on the rear
panel. Figure 1–15 shows the locations of the logical address switches on the
rear of the Enhanced Monitor panel.
In most cases, you can leave the switches in the factory default position of FF.
This allows the mainframe to dynamically configure the address. However,
make sure that no other module has the same slot address as the Enhanced
Monitor board. If all VXI modules in the mainframe are set to FF, the resource
manager will “dynamically” configure the module’s logical address. If a VXI
module is set to a logical address other than FF, you must be careful to choose a
unique address. See Enhanced Monitor Board Jumpers on page B–4 for
information on configuring the jumpers on the Enhanced Monitor board.

Functional Check
Use the information in this section to determine that the IntelliFrame Mainframe
operates properly. The functional check consists of checking the power supply
voltages at the 25-pin connector at the rear of the mainframe with a digital
voltmeter.
If your VX1410A mainframe comes with the optional display (standard on the
VX1420A mainframe), verify that the display shows no errors at power on. You
can then verify the power supply voltages with the front-panel digital display and
compare the displayed values against those in Table 1–3.
If your mainframe does not include the optional display you can measure the
power supply voltages with a digital voltmeter.
Connect one lead of the voltmeter to the supply pins of the 25-pin connector on
the rear panel of the mainframe. Connect the reference lead of the voltmeter to
one of the ground pins. Compare each voltage reading to the values listed in
Table 1–3.

The On/Standby switch on the top-left corner of the front panel applies DC
voltages to the mainframe. The switch is a momentary contact switch. The
switch is lighted when DC voltages are applied to the mainframe. You can also
remotely power on or power down the mainframe.
You can configure your mainframe to bypass the On/Standby switch (refer to
Remote Power Switch Configuration in Appendix B of this manual for information on configuring the power switch). The On/Standby switch remains lighted
while power is applied; however, the switch itself no longer controls the
mainframe. The switch can also be configured to activate SysReset, Refer to
Front Panel SYSReset Cable Connector Configuration in Appendix B.
If you ordered your VX1410A with Option 1M (VX1420A display is standard)
or ordered field upgrade VXF1M, the mainframe includes a 20-character
alphanumeric display indicating the status of the system . The NEXT and PREV
push buttons, located to the right of the display, allow you to scroll through the
display selections. See Figure 2–2.

RSV
Request Service signal5
1
To monitor, only use a probe with greater than 1 M impedance.
2
By momentarily grounding this line, the mainframe will toggle from on to off (or vice
versa). The state changes on the falling edge of the signal. Hold the signal low for at
least 500 ms before releasing. Attach only a momentary switch or an open collector
device to drive this line. The line is pulled up to 1 V internally.
3
If you use pins 8 and 21 (+5 VB) to supply +5 V Standby to the backplane, make sure
that the rear panel jumper is in the correct position (refer to Enhanced Monitor Board
Jumpers on page B–4).
4
Refer to VMEbus Specification Manual for details on using the ACFAIL* and
SYSRESET* signals.
5
The RSV signal is equivalent to the IEEE 488.1 SRQ signal. The signal is asserted (0)
when an enable event is generated; the signal is unasserted(1) when the event is
cleared by reading the event register. This line is an open collector output. The
signal can be stand-alone or multiple mainframes can be tied together. If you tie
multiple mainframes together, each mainframe must be polled to determine the
source of the service request.

SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) is a standard created
by an international consortium of the major manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. SCPI uses IEEE-488.2 syntax to provide common commands
for the same functions of various programmable instruments.
The standard simplifies the task of programming a group of instruments that use
SCPI. Instead of having to learn different commands for every instrument, the
programmer may use the same commands for the same functions of each
instrument.
The controller sends instructions to the instrument in the form of commands or
queries. Commands modify control settings or tell the instrument to perform a
specific action. Queries cause the instrument to send data or status information
back to the controller. A question mark at the end of a command header
identifies it as a query.
Command Syntax
Any instruction that you send to an instrument that complies with SCPI must
have at least three basic elements:
H
Command header
H
Parameter (if required)
H
Message terminator or separator

Syntax
Command Headers
The command header has a hierarchical structure that may be represented by a
command tree (see Figure 3–3). An easy-to-remember word called a mnemonic
designates each level of the hierarchy. A colon separates the levels.
The top level of the tree is the root level. A root node is a mnemonic at the root
level. A root node and one or more lower-level nodes form a header path to the
last node called the leaf node.

The header path and leaf node together form the command header. Figure 3–4
shows the command header for the leaf node indicated in Figure 3–3.

Parameter
You must include values for commands that have parameters. In this manual, the
< > symbols enclose the parameter type when stating the syntax of the command. For example, the syntax of the command in Figure 3–5 includes the
parameter type.

NOTE. Do not include the <, >, {,}, or | symbols when entering the actual value for
a parameter.
Separate multiple parameters after a command header with a comma. For
example:

Parameter type
Description
Example
Boolean
Boolean number or value (command parameter,
response returns a 1 or 0)
ON or 1
OFF or 0
Block
A specified length of block-formatted data
(command parameter)
#212xxxxxxxxxxxx
where 2 indicates that
the following 2 digits
(12) specify the length
of the following block
data (xxx...)
Nondecimal numeric
Integers in hexadecimal (#H), octal (#Q), or
binary (#B) format (command parameter).
#H00FF, #B010101,
#Q0753
NR1
Integers (response parameter)
0, 1, 15
NR2
Decimal numbers (response parameter)
1.2, 3.141516, 6.5
NRf
Integer, decimal, or floating point number as well
as MAX and MIN for setting the largest or
smallest value the instrument allows. (command
parameter)
1, 3E+1, MAX, 2.6
discrete
A list of specific values (command or response
parameter)
P24, P5EXT, N2, ...
String
Alphanumeric characters within quotation marks
(command or response parameter)
“No error”
Parameter values that appear in this manual are often enclosed in curly braces
({}) separated by a vertical line. This vertical line means the same thing as the
word “or.” For example, values for the parameter <Boolean> are
{0|1|OFF|ON}
This is the same thing as saying “0 or 1 or OFF or ON.” Any single value is a
valid parameter.

Syntax
Message Terminator and
Message Separator
In accordance with IEEE 488.2 and the VXIbus specification, the IntelliFrame
Mainframe accepts any of the following message terminators:
H
LF^END
Linefeed code (hexadecimal 0A) with the END bit in the
Byte Available command asserted.
H
LF
Linefeed code
H
<dab>^END
Last data byte with the END bit in the Byte Available
command asserted.
A semicolon separates one command from another when the commands appear
on the same line. See Entering Commands.
Entering Commands
The standards that govern the command set for the IntelliFrame Mainframe
allows for a certain amount of flexibility when you enter commands. For
example, you can abbreviate many commands or combine commands into one
message that you send to the mainframe. This flexibility, called “friendly
listening,” saves programming time and makes the command set easier to
remember and use.
Command Characters
The mainframe is not sensitive to the case of command characters. You can enter
commands in either upper or lower case.
You can precede any command with white space characters. White space
characters include a space or any combination of the ASCII control characters
hexadecimal 00 through 1F except for the character 0A (new line). You must,
however, use at least one space between the parameter and the command header.
Abbreviating Commands
Most commands have a long form and a short form. The listing for each
command in this section shows the abbreviations in upper case. For example,
you can enter the query
simply as
(or ).
The brackets around a mnemonic indicate that the mainframe assumes this level
of the command header by default. It is not necessary, therefore, for this
mnemonic to appear as part of the header when you send the command. For
example, you can abbreviate the command
to
3–24
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
Syntax
Because the mainframe assumes that a command at the beginning of a program
message starts from the root, you have the option of beginning the initial
command header with a colon (:).
Combining Commands
You can combine (concatenate) commands and queries using a semicolon (;).
The mainframe executes concatenated commands in the order it receives them.
When you concatenate queries, the mainframe combines the responses into a
single response message. For example, querying both the standard event status
register and the error/event queue in the same program message
STATus:OPERation?;:SYSTem:ERRor?
returns the response message
0;0,"No errors"
If the command that follows the semicolon has a different header path from the
root level, you must use a colon to force a return to the root level:
SYSTem:VERSion?;:TEST:RESult?
If the command that follows the semicolon has the same header path, you may
omit the colon and the path and state only the new leaf node. This makes it
possible, for example, to shorten the concatenated query
SYSTem:TIME:LMAintenance?;:SYSTem:TIME:ON?
into
SYSTem:TIME:LMAintenance?;ON?
The 488.2 common commands that begin with an asterisk (*) may be used
anywhere in a command sequence with no effect on the command header path.
SYSTem:VERSion?;*ESR?
returns
1995.0;16
You can combine commands and queries into the same message. Note, for
example, the following combination which sets the temperature limit and queries
to verify the setting
status:questionable:temperature:limit AMBient,25;limit? AMBient

Figure 3–7: STATus subsystem hierarchy
Use the STATus subsystem to monitor the status of the voltages, currents, power,
temperatures, fans, and the VXI Monitor.
The differences between the Event Registers and the Condition Register are as
follows:
H
Reading the Event Register is destructive. Contents are reset to zero until an
event occurs. If the triggering event disappears, the corresponding event bit
remains set until the register is read or *RST (IEEE command) is performed.
H
Reading the Condition Register is not destructive. The Condition Register
gives a real-time account of the status.
The Enable Register does not affect the related Event or Condition Registers. For
example, the Enable Register for the current sense
(“STAT:QUES:CURR:ENABLE?”) does not effect which bits are set in the
Condition Register (“STAT:QUES:CURR:COND?”). The Enable Register does
affect which bits will cause the current bit to be set in the questionable Event
Register (”STAT:QUES?”) or the questionable condition register
(“STAT:QUES:COND?”).
Examples:
1. Read the amperage draw used by the +5 Volt supply:
STAT:QUES:CURR:LEV? P5
The system response: 17.5
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
3–31
STATus Subsystem
2. Read the Event Register for all currents:
STAT:QUES:CURR?
The system response: 0
3. Read the Condition Register for all currents:
STAT:QUES:CURR:COND?
The system response: 0
4. Set an alarm to activate by dropping the amperage threshold for the +5 Volt
supply down to 10 Amps:
STAT:QUES:CURR:LIMIT P5, 10.0
The system response: The front panel display should start flashing the alarm
for +5V current over limits
5. Read the Condition and Event Registers. They should have bit 2 set.
STAT:QUES:CURR?
The system response: 4
STAT:QUES:CURR:CONDITION:
The system response: 4
6. Read the same registers: since the event still exists the Condition Register
will display the problem with +5V current. The Event Register was cleared
from the previous read operation:
STAT:QUES:CURR?
The system response: 0
STAT:QUES:CURR:COND?
The system response: 4
7. Clear all event registers and reset the alarm:
*CLS
8. Read the Event Register that shows *CLS caused the event to be
re-triggered:
STAT:QUES:CURR?
The system response: 4
9. Clear the event again to trigger the event, but this time eliminate the error
before reading registers:
*CLS
STAT:QUES:CURR:LIMIT P5, MAX
The system response: The alarm is removed
STAT:QUES:CURR?
The system response: 4 (Error situation removed, but still displays the event)
STAT:QUES:CURR:COND?
The system response: 0 (No errors exist at this time)

STATus:OPERation:VXITrigger:CONDition?
Queries the contents of the VXI TTL Trigger Monitor Condition register. A
value of one in a bit indicates the corresponding condition bit has transitioned
from high to low. Unused bits always return a value of zero. The definition of
the bits in this register can be found in STATus:OPERation:VXITrigger
command.
The enhanced monitor latches the state of VXI TTL Trigger lines into a hardware
register. This register cleared upon VXI Monitor initialization. This query returns
the state of this register.

SYSTem:COMMunicate:SERial:ERESponse?
Sets or queries if error response messages automatically return to the RS-232 port.
When the mode is ON, all error and event response messages will output directly to
the RS-232 port; the error and event response messages will not be placed in the
Error/Event queue. When the mode is OFF, all error and event messages will be
reported to the Error/Event queue and will not be output to the RS-232 port directly.
If the mode is ON, all asynchronous error messages are placed in the Error/Event
queue. The event registers will not be updated by any event message.
Asynchronous event messages include “Self Test Failed” and “Configuration
Memory Lost.”

SYSTem:COMMunicate:SERial:LBUFfer
SYSTem:COMMunicate:SERial:LBUFfer?
Sets or queries whether the RS-232 line buffer is enabled. If the buffer is
enabled, all input characters are buffered until a new line character (^J or 0x0A)
is received. Then all characters are available for processing. You can use special
characters to modify the input before the new line character is received. For
example, for a backspace character, use ^H; for a line-delete character, use ^U.
If you enable the line buffer mode, the output character “\n” 0x0A will be
converted to “\n\r” 0x0A 0x0D and the input character will be converted to
“\n” 0x0A.

VXIMonitor Subsystem
The VXI Monitor commands allow the user to monitor certain signals that only
occur on the VXI backplane. The VXI Monitor commands allow the user to
control how long to monitor (VXIM:TINT), continuously monitor (VXIM:REPEAT ON) and to start the VXImonitor (VXIM:STATE ON).
The VXIMonitor subsystem controls the parameters shown in Figure 3–10.
Figure 3–10: VXIMonitor subsystem hierarchy
The VXI backplane is monitored in six areas:
<VXI signal>
Retrieve results using
BERR (Bus Error)
SYSFAIL
ACFAIL
AS (Address Strobe)
VXI Triggers

STAT:OPER:VXIM:BERR?
STAT:OPER:VXIM:SYSF?
STAT:OPER:VXIM:ACF?
STAT:OPER:VXIM?
STAT:OPER:VXIT?
STAT:OPER:VXII?
After operating the monitor, it is recommended that the summary register be
queried to check if any of these events occurred. If the bit is set, then the
corresponding register should be queried for more detail. For example, if the
command “STAT:OPER?” yields a result of 32 (0 x 20), the VXI Trigger should
be queried (“STAT:OPER:VXIT?”). This will determine which line was
triggered. Knowing what line was triggered, the command
“STAT:OPER:VXIT:TRIG? TTL2” (using trigger line 2 as an example) will
yield the time (since power up) that this particular line was triggered. This time
will only be erased when VXI Monitor is restarted.
Programming example;
1. Set up VXI Monitor to run continuously:
VXIM:REPEAT ON
2. For this example, assume that an external VXI module set a trigger line,
asserted SYSFAIL, and a Bus Error occured.
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
3–155
VXIMonitor Subsystem
3. Query operation register to check if either D5, D8, D9 or D10 are set.
STAT:OPER?
The system response: 288 (0 x 120 – VXI Triggers set and VXI Monitor)
4. Since the VXI Trigger bit was set, now query the Trigger register.
STAT:OPER:VXIT?
The system response: 16 (0 x 10 – TTL4 Trigger occurred).
5. Query the time that TTL Trigger line 4 triggered.
STAT:OPER:VXIT:TRIG? TTL4
The system response: 0,34,30 (Trigger occurred on line TTL4 34.5 minutes
after power on).
6. When the “STAT:OPER?” query was performed, the VXI Monitor bit was
also set. Use the following command to examine specifically what event
occurred.
STAT:OPER:VXIM?
The system response: 3 (BERR and SYSFAIL are set).
7. STAT:OPER:VXIM:BERR?
The system response: A16 (Bus Error occurred in A16 address space).
8. STAT:OPER:VXIM:SYSF?
The system response: 1, 30, 0 (SYSFAIL occurred one and one-half hours
after power-up)
NOTE. If this test were run with the VXI Monitor enable register set to zero
(“STAT:OPER:VXIM:ENABLE 0”), the VXI Monitor bit would not be set in the
operation register. However, if the VXI Monitor enable register was set to 0 x F
(“STAT:OPER:VXIT:ENABLE 15”), then only triggers on TTL0, TTL1, TTL2
and TTL3 lines will cause the VXIT trigger bit to be set in the operation register
(“STAT:OPER?”). The VXI Trigger register (“STAT:OPER:VXIT?”) will always
show all Trigger lines that are triggered, regardless of the setting in the enable
register.

Status and Events
The IntelliFrame Mainframe complies with SCPI version 1995.0. You can use
the SYSTem:VERSion? command to read the latest version or the *IDN?
command to read a more detailed identification message.
The IntelliFrame Mainframe supports the Status Byte model shown in
Figure 3–11. The figure shows the core of the SCPI-required status reporting
capability.
The status registers fit into a 16-bit integer with the most-significant bit always
zero (positive logic). Unused or “don’t care” bits in masks and registers always
return zeros when queried.
The Operation Status register and the Questionable Status register outputs are
logically ORed together as shown in Figure 3–11.
The Operation Status register contains information on the normal operation of
the IntelliFrame Mainframe In particular, bit 8 contains summary information on
the VXI Monitor status register (see Figure 3–12). The VXI Monitor Status
register monitors activity on bits 0 through 3.

The Questionable Status register contains information on the quality of the
signals within the mainframe. In the event problems occur within the mainframe
(for example, one of the power supplies is not working properly), you could
program the mainframe to warn you of possible problems.
There are five status registers that provide summary information to the Questionable Status register: the Current Status register, Power Status register, Voltage
Status register, the Temperature Status register, and the Blower Status register.
The Power Status register provides status information on the total power supply
wattage (see Figure 3–15). You can detect problems with total power supply
wattage by monitoring the corresponding bit in the Power Status register. If a
problem occurs, the corresponding bit will be set in the register.

RS-232 and VXI Interface Status and Events
The RS-232 and VXI interfaces have separate status and event systems. There
are two sets of status and event registers and two separate Error/Event queues for
the two interfaces. You can send the commands listed below from the interface to
set up only those status and event registers of that interface. This allows the
RS-232 interface to have different settings than the VXI interface.

Error Messages
Table 3–20 on page 3–181 lists some of the error messages that you may
encounter while sending commands and queries to the IntelliFrame Mainframe.
The IntelliFrame Mainframe reports the following categories of errors:
H
Command Errors
H
Execution Errors
H
Device Specific Errors
H
Query Errors
Command Errors
Command errors have error codes within the range of –100 and –199. These
errors indicate syntax errors. The syntax errors can be due to the command parser
detecting an IEEE 488.2 syntax error or an unrecognized header that was
received. Command errors may also occur when you attempt to send an
unemployment IEEE 488.2 common command.
Execution Errors
Execution errors have error codes within the range of –200 and –299. These
errors are detected by the IntelliFrame Mainframe execution control block.
Execution errors can occur when a program data element following a header was
evaluated as outside of the legal input range or when the program data element is
inconsistent with the capabilities of the mainframe.
Device Specific Errors
Device specific errors have error codes within the range of –300 and –399. These
errors may indicate that some operations failed to complete due to abnormal
hardware or firmware conditions.
Query Errors
3–180
Query errors have error codes within the range of –400 and –499. These errors
indicate that the IntelliFrame Mainframe detected a problem with the message
exchange protocol. Query errors set the query error bit in the Event Status
register. These errors may result when you attempt to read data from the output
queue when no input is present or pending. The errors may also occur when the
data in the output queue is lost.

Examples
This section describes a few brief examples using some of the commands
described in this manual. These examples are intended to show how the
commands from the Command section work together to complete a task.
Example 1: Monitor Power Supply Voltages
This example shows how to monitor the mainframe power supply voltages
1. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:VOLTage:ENABle command to enable the
bits in the Voltage Enable register. This command lets you monitor all
voltage limits.
2. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:ENABle command to enable the bit 0 in the
Questionable Enable register. If any problems occur with any of the power
supplies, bit 0 of the register will be set.
Example 2: Monitor the Delta Temperature
This example shows how to monitor the delta temperature in slots 0, 1, 2, and 3.
The maximum allowable delta temperature for slots 0 and 1 is 10 °C; the
maximum allowable delta temperature for slots 2 and 3 is 5 °C.
1. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:TEMPerature:LIMit command to set the
temperature limits for the four slots (one command per slot):
2. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:TEMPerature:ENABle command to enable
the bits in the Temperature Enable register. This command allows you to
measure temperatures for the individual slots.
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
3–183
Examples
3. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:ENABle command to enable bit 4 in the
Questionable Enable register. If any problems occur with any of the slots, the
corresponding bit will be set.
Example 3: Summarize Status Information
The following example shows how to return a summary of the status information
using the STAT:SEVent command.
Send the STAT:SEVent? query and note the returned information. For example,
assume that the query returns a decimal value of 1073741947 (0X4000007b).
Decoding the information indicates that both fans failed and that the temperatures for slots 0 through 3 exceeded the specified limits.
Since bit 30 is set, the overflow register should also be checked (STAT:S2EV?).
Example 4: Monitor the Power Supply Currents
See STATus subsystem on page 3–31.
Example 5: VXIMonitor
See VXIMonitor subsystem on page 3–155.

Theory of Operation
This Chapter provides a brief overview of the theory of operation for the
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe. Figure 6–1 shows the
functional block diagram of the mainframe and the major components.
IntelliFrame Mainframe
The standard mainframe contains the following major components:
H
Power supply
H
Backplane
H
Enhanced Monitor board
H
Temperature Sense board
Power Supply. The power supply provides all voltages and currents to the
mainframe. The power supply connects to the backplane at P25, P26, P27, and
P28 through the Power Supply. The power supply can be replaced as a single
unit.
Backplane. The Backplane (A4) provides all the connections to module slots 0
through 12 in the mainframe. It also has connections to all other circuit boards
and modules in the mainframe.
The front panel On/Standby DC switch connects to one of two connectors at the
top of the backplane. When the switch is connected to J22, the switch controls
the power in the mainframe. When the switch is connected to J23, the power-on
functions are controlled by an external source through the 25-pin connector on
the Monitor board. Although the switch still illuminates when power is applied
to the mainframe, the on/off function of the switch is disabled. (Refer to Remote
Power Switch Configuration on page B–1 for information on powering the
mainframe with a remote momentary switch.)
The backplane connects to the Power Supply at J25 to J28. A 30-wide ribbon
cable at 0J4 on the backplane connects to J16 on the Temperature Sense board.
Connectors 0J1, 0J2, and 0P3 carry instrument monitoring information from the
backplane to the Monitor board.

Temperature Sense Board. The Temperature Sense board (A2) monitors the
exhaust air temperatures for each slot within the mainframe. The Temperature
Sense Board connects to the backplane through the ribbon cable at J16.
Enhanced Monitor Board. Your IntelliFrame Mainframe comes standard with the
Enhanced Monitor board. The Front Panel Display board is standard on the
VX1420A and is Option 1M on the VX1410A. The Enhanced Monitor board
(A7) collects the monitoring information from the power supply, fans, and
Temperature Sense board and passes it to the 25-pin D connector. The Monitor
board connects directly to the backplane at 0J3, 0P1 and 0P2. The Enhanced
Monitor includes a nine-pin RS-232 port to connect to an external host. Address
switches near the bottom rear of the board allow you to select the VXIbus
address. A green READY indicator and amber ACCESSED indicator located at
the bottom of the board indicate the operating status of the mainframe.
VX1410A-The two fans connect to the Monitor board at J7 (Fan2) and J8
(Fan1). The Fan Speed switch (S3) selects either variable fan speed (VAR) or full
speed (FULL).
VX1420A-The blower connects to the Monitor board at J8 (Fan2). The Fan
Speed switch (S3) lets you select either variable fan speed (VAR) or full speed
(FULL).
Table 3–1 on page 3–2 shows the pinouts of the 25-pin D connector.
The Enhanced Monitor board also has circuitry to allow you to communicate
with the mainframe with SCPI commands. These commands are detailed in the
Reference section of this manual.
An Auxiliary Power input connector is available to connect 5 volts from an
outside source to power the communication circuitry in the event of power
failure of the mainframe.
Mainframe with Option 1M
Option 1M provides your VX1410A mainframe with a Front Panel Display
board. You may upgrade your mainframe with a front panel display by ordering
the VXF1M field upgrade kit. This display should be standard on your
VX1420A mainframe.
Display Panel. The Front Panel Display board (A6) has a 20-character alphanumeric display that displays the system messages on the front panel. Scroll keys
allow you to scroll through the messages one at a time. The Front Panel Display
board connects to the backplane through the ribbon cable at J18.

Appendix B: Special Configuration Options
This appendix contains information for configuring your IntelliFrame Mainframe
for specific situations not documented earlier in this manual. These special
configuration options require you to disassemble parts of the mainframe to
access jumpers or circuit boards. Refer to Maintenance for detailed information
on the assembly and disassembly procedures. You may also need to refer to the
exploded views in Replaceable Parts.
The information in this section is intended for use by qualified service personnel.
Read the General Safety Summary and Service Safety Summary at the front of
this manual and the static precautions on page 8–1 before attempting any
procedures in this appendix. Refer to the Operating Basics chapter for information on the location of controls, indicators, and connectors used with the
mainframe.
CAUTION. To avoid damage from high currents on the backplane, always power
off the mainframe and disconnect the power cord before performing any of the
configuration procedures for the mainframe described in this appendix.
Remote Power Switch Configuration
You can control the power-on function of the mainframe by the front panel
On/Standby switch and from a remote momentary switch through the connections of the 25-pin rear panel connector. If you connect a remote switch to
pins 5 and 18 (return side) of the 25-pin connector, the remote switch and the
front panel On/Standby switch control the power-on functions of the mainframe.
You can also disable the front panel switch and control the power-on functions
from the remote switch only. The backplane has two connectors that control the
power-on functions. If the front panel switch is connected to the backplane at
J22, the switch controls the power-on functions. If the switch is connected to
J23, the front panel switch is disabled, however, the light still illuminates when
the mainframe is powered on. To configure the mainframe to disable the front
panel On/Standby switch, perform the following steps:
1. Disconnect the power cord from the mainframe.
2. Remove the cover from the mainframe.
3. Refer to Figure B–1 and locate the two connectors at the top of the backplane.
VX1410A & VX1420A IntelliFrame Mainframe Instruction Manual
B–1
Appendix B: Special Configuration Options
4. Disconnect the On/Standby switch cable at J22 and connect it to J23.
5. Replace the mainframe cover.
6. Connect the momentary switch to pins 5 and 18 (return side) of the 25-pin
rear panel connector.

Front Panel SYSReset Cable Connector Configuration
The IntelliFrame Mainframe front panel switch cable connector must be
configured as shown in Figure B–2 before the SYSReset feature can be utilized.
Perform the following procedures to activate the SYSReset feature:
1. Remove the mainframe cover.
2. Cut the tie wrap that secures the SYSReset connector to the front panel
switch cable.
3. Connect the SYSReset connector to J29 on the backplane circuit board.
4. Replace the mainframe cover.

Appendix B: Special Configuration Options
Enhanced Monitor Board Jumpers
The Enhanced Monitor board has two jumpers accessible from the rear of the
mainframe. Figure B–3 shows the factory default settings of these jumpers.

monitor backup power supply
(default)
+5V Standby sourced
from P9, pins 8 & 21
MODID12
(default)
MODID01
Figure B–3: Enhanced monitor board jumpers
You can also select the source of the +5 V Standby voltage. If you source the
+5 V Standby voltage from the +5 V external supply (Monitor Backup Power
Supply connector), then the external supply will provide the backplane with the
+5 V external voltage (1 A maximum). If you source the +5 V Standby voltage
from the 25-pin connector, you must provide the +5 V to pins 8 and 21 of the
25-pin connector. The default jumper setting is to provide the voltage from the
external source (+5 V external power supply).
The Enhanced Monitor can answer to the slot 1 or slot 12 MODID line for the
VXI configuration manager. The default position is slot 12 since it is most likely
to be empty. Slot 1 is available if you use a 2 slot embedded controller.

Glossary
The terms in this glossary are defined as used in the VXIbus System. Although
some of these terms may have different meanings in other systems, it is
important to use these definitions in VXIbus applications. Terms which apply
only to a particular instrument module are noted. Not all terms appear in every
manual.
