Installation of IRL-5000 Software

To use the IRL-5000 to its fullest potential, you will ned to install the IRL-5000 software on a

PC. While some of the functions for the IRL-5000 can be learned without a PC, functions including numeric direct access, macros, custom function labels, and alternate addresses can only be performed from a PC. Please note that the IRL-5000 software may be referenced as IRL-3000. This is not a problem as the IRL-5000 is programmed using the exact same software that is used to program the IRL-3000. In this case, only the hardware differs.

When using a PC to program the IRL-5000, you have several saving options, making it easy to re-use certain source setups for other projects. This will limit the time you spend programming sources and their respective functions.

Furthermore, testing functions and source layouts can best be done using the IRL-5000 software.

The IRL-5000 (Ver. 1.8) comes with a disc containing the required software. The disc has an installer built in. To install the IRL-5000 software, follow these steps.

Enter your name and company information. If this data is already on your PC, these fields may already be filled in. If this occurs and the information is not correct, please use this step to alter the data.

This step permits you to alter the destination of the installed software or rename the folders where the installation will take place. ADA suggests using the IRL-5000 folder option that is automatically displayed. The installer will create a folder labeled ADA and in this new folder, place the IRL-5000 folder. The IRL-5000 folder contains all of the IRL-5000 files and the

IRL-5000 program. Please note, that because the IRL-5000 Program relies heavily on the location of files and folders, if you are going to be using any number of PCs, in order for PCs to share IR code files, there file structures must be identical. As such, it is strongly recommended that you allow the installer to place all files.

10 The next window will simply display the information showing that the Setup status is complete, the target folders, and the user information. Click the Next button to finish with the installation of the IRL-5000

Software. Press Cancel to stop.

11 The next window permits the installer to finish with the complete installation. Press the Finish button to continue.

The window to the right will appear somewhere on your

PC’s desktop after the installation is complete. At this time, you can close this window by clicking on the X box in the windows upper right hand corner.

Introduction

The IRL-5000 is ADA’s newest infrared controller and replaces the IRL-3000 . The primary benefit of the IRL-5000 is in its ability to issue a ON and OFF command when a source is selected and then no longer used. The IRL-5000 communicates primarily to source components, transmitting learned source IR commands when a specific ADA Bus® commands are received by the IRL-5000. The IRL-5000 must be programmed using a PC and ADA’s

Progada.exe software.

Downloading the IRL-5000 Software

The software is sold with the IRL-5000 and is also available on ADA’s web site. The link is www.ada-usa.com. On the site’s second page select the CONTACT US button and select

DEALER. You will be asked for a User Name (dealer) and Password (1867). You will find the software installer under PROGRAMS. Please note, it may be listed as IRL-3000 software as the IRL-5000 uses the same program as the IRL-3000. Since ADA’s software is designed to run on even the oldest lap-tops (often passed on to field technicians), you will find most prepackaged file names follow the 8.3 character DOS format. To make certain that the files you save are available to other programmers, now or later, ADA suggests saving file names in the same 8.3 character format.

IRL-5000 Feedback Labels

The IRL-5000 permits up to 25 functions to be entered for a single component. Each command can be assigned a twelve character label that will display on the MC-5000, MC-6000,

TS-3000, MC-3000, MC-3800, MC-3000 OD, and MC-3800 OD. These keypads feature an alphanumeric display that will indicate the feedback you programmed into the IRL-5000. For example, when pressing the >> key while on a CD player, the display might read TRACK

SKIP UP while on the DSS receiver it might read CHANNEL UP. Alternately, if you have programmed station macros on the numeric buttons for a DSS receiver, creating presets instead of numeric direct access, pressing the number one button might set the DSS receiver to the jazz channel and the feedback might indicate DSS JAZZ. The keypads only display this information for a moment and then the display will revert to indicating the source name.

IRL-5000 Commands and Keypad Assignments

Five are accessed from an MC-5011; <<, >>, >, STOP, and MAIN. MAIN is accessed by repeated pressing of the source button after it has been selected and is often used for discskip or preset skip. The MC-5000, which features <<, >>, >, <, STOP, PAUSE, and MAIN, also includes a numeric pad that offers 0-9, * and ENTER functions, for a total of 19 keypad commands. The MC-6000 control with video display has the same 19 functions of the MC-

5000 with the addition of UP, DOWN, RIGHT, and LEFT buttons for a total of 23 commands.

The remaining two commands refer to a Power ON and Power OFF function. These are not triggered directly from an ADA Keypad as they are issued by the ADA System (Suite-16 &

Delta) and not a keypad and are transmitted when a source is first selected (ON) and when the source is no longer in use (OFF). As such, just pressing the keypads CD button would permit a command or macro to be issued to engage the CD player into play or random play.

When the CD player is no longer in use, its stop command could be transmitted under the

OFF function. Similarly, when DSS is no longer being used, a macro command could be transmitted under the OFF function, resetting the DSS receiver to the favorite music station.

As such, when DSS is selected the next time, it will already be on the station of choice.

- 4 -

Macro Commands

Any IRL-5000 button can be assigned a macro command with delay. There are a total of sixteen steps available per function. Because an IRL-5000 provides 25 functions for each of the eight outputs (200 commands), if each command were to include a 16 step macro, the

IRL-5000 could not contain all of the data in memory. No system to date has yet maxed out the IR capability of the IRL-5000 or IRL-3000, hitting this limit.

Terminology & Features

IR File(s) - When an IR command is learned, you will have to save it as

an IR File, giving the IR command a file name. The name should be 8 characters long and will be followed by the suffix, “.ir”. You will want to create folders for different devices for easy sorting of commands. For example, when learning a Sony 7000 DVD player’s commands, create a folder called Sony7000. Then when learning each code, label it as “_

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ . ir”. The “_” can be used to label the function (i.e. For play, you can choose to save the file as “play.ir”. Because you will have several play functions, placing the “.ir” files in the correct folder will be key to your use of these files.

Source File(s) - Once you have captured a full set of IR commands for

a particular component (“.ir” files), you will want to link these functions to a specific button press and also label the function (for display on an

MC-5000, MC-3000, MC-3800, or TS-3000). For example, you will want to place the “play” function (“play.ir”) on the “>” button and label it “PLAY”.

Once you have linked all functions to their corresponding buttons, you can save this set of links as a “.irs” file or Source File. Once you have built a library of Source Files, you will be able to setup an IRL-5000 in minutes. Therefore, you will want to spend some time making certain that your source files are perfect prior to saving them.

ADA Files - The third save level available allows you to maintain the

configuration of a particular project. This is extremely useful if many of your systems using an IRL-5000, utilize the same components accessed on the same ADA keypad buttons. Instead of adding Source Files, you can further cut down your IRL-5000 programming time, by simply recalling a template or ADA File (“.ada”). ADA Files again use an eight character name followed by the suffix “.ada”. You can even recall an existing “.ada” file and make changes to it. The “.ada” file contains links to each IR File (“.ir”).

IRL Keypad Layout - The Progada.exe (the IRL-5000 program)

will bring up a layout similar to an ADA Keypad, featuring all 25 functions. By clicking on a source button, you lock in the transport functions for that IRL-5000 Port. If you select Src 2, the transport buttons will correspond to IRL-5000 Port 2. The software’s source buttons may not correspond to the sources on the ADA system as keypad source buttons can be assigned to track any IRL-5000 port as well as an ADA tuner module, or Special CD address. Thus, the

IRL-5000 software’s ADA Keypad Layout and Src # buttons refer only to IRL-5000 Port #s.

Downloading of multiple Source Files simultaneously.

The IRL-5000 has the ability to offer data serial direct or data with IR carrier individually for each port.

The IRL-5000 has jumper pins which engage or disengage IR repeat through for each port individually.

As some components invert their data (serial links), you can provide invert the serial data per Port.

The IRL-5000 has multiple address (set during download) so that several IRL-3000s can be used on one system (note that ADA keypads permit use of the IRL-5000 on address 1 {standard} or address 2).

The IRL-5000 now features an additional 9-pin D connector that receives low voltage signals from a

Suite 16 or Delta system when a source is in use on the system. Upon the signal going high for a particular source, that IRL port will release the ON command. When the line goes off, the OFF command is issued. This permits one-button operation of a source component by simply selecting the device.

Connection for Programming

1 Install the software as described on pages 2-3.

To perform any IR Learning, IR Testing, IR Downloading, and Testing (ADA Mode) of IRL-

5000 after download, you will first need to connect the IRL-5000.

Connect the IRL-5000 to the ADA Bus®. The IRL-5000 will require power from the

ADA Bus®. If you do not have an ADA Bus® system or driver device (Suite-16, CIC-3000,

Delta-3, Delta-88, Cinema Reference, SSD-

66 (5.1), Millennium 2000, or VS-3), a 12-

15VDC (500mA) transformer will do. Connect (-) to pin 1 and (+) to pin 4 on the IRL-

5000’s ADA Bus® terminal.

Press the button on the IRL-5000 in so that it is in the RS-232 position.

Com Port Selection

Once the program is open, the window to the right will appear. In order to move forward with any programming, you must first make certain that the program is communicating out of the correct com port. To open the com port setting window, click on the Config button at the top of the window. The Com Port window will then open permitting you to set the program to the com port the IRL-

5000 is connected to.

Special Notice Prior To Proceeding

a.

You cannot run more than one ADA application at any one time.

b.

The Progada.exe (IRL-5000 Program) software is time sensitive with respect to the

IRL-5000. As such, the software and the IRL-5000 need to be in sync with each other to perform most any function. It is important, that the IRL-5000 receive power and be switched to the RS-232 mode prior to opening the software program. Also, switching back and forth between Simulate Mode and Program Mode (under the Options pull down tab), assists in synchronizing the software and hardware. This will be further discussed under the following sections.

c.

The IRL-5000 program does not save the IR commands (.ir) for each job in a client file.

The client file (.ada) or component file (.irs) only contain place holders for were the IR files (.ir) can be found. Just like any map, these paths are very specific. Thus, prior to proceeding with the process of assembling component or client files, you will need to setup a series of folders and sub folders that you will be able to reference. Thus, as you proceed with the steps for capturing IR commands, you will be able to save them in the right locations, saving time and confusion later on. ADA suggests setting up a folders in the following manner.

Setting Up Of Folders

Folder structure is extremely important and if done properly, will even permit distribution of a master file to multiple installers (and their PCs). After installation of the IRL program, you will notice a new folder in your C drive called ADA. In the ADA folder is the IRL-3000 folder

(remember the IRL-3000 program is used for the IRL-5000 as well as the IRL-3000). In the

IRL-3000 folder there is a folder marked

IR Codes. This folder will be empty. It is in this folder that you will create folders pertaining to the components you are using. ADA strongly suggests using a two tier approach, first create folders pertaining to the manufacturer and in these folders, separate folders for each model number. For example, if you are capturing a

Sony DVD player, first create a folder called SONY in the IR CODES folder.

Then open the SONY folder and create a folder called DVD.

- 7 -

It is extremely important to limit folder names to only 8 characters and to avoid using / or blank spaces in a folder name (SNY/DVD or SONY DVD are examples of bad folder names). ADA suggests creating these folders prior to proceeding with IR capture. It is your first step.

ADA also suggests creating a folder in the IR CODES folder that you label as CUSTOMER. It is in this folder that you will save all your customer related “.ada” files.

2

3

Opening the Application Program

1 Press the IRL-5000’s ADA/232 button so that the button is locked down in the RS-232 position.

Open the IRL-5000 Program as discussed on the page 6.

Gather the remote controls you wish to capture and familiarize yourself with the buttons and their respective functions.

4

6

If you have not yet done so, in your C drive, open the IRL-3000 folder. If one does not yet exist, create a new folder and label it IR CODES. In this folder, create a new folder for each brand and in these folders, create new folders for each component. Keep the number of characters to eight when labeling folders.

Press the Learn IR button located at the bottom left of the window. A window will open instructing you to

“Aim remote control at IRL-5000 window and press button for 1 to 2 seconds.” At this time you will send the IR command for capture by the

IRL-5000. Again, only press the

remotes button for one or two

seconds. The software will con-

tinue to count down for a few more seconds after you release the button. Towards the end of the count down, a “save as” window will open.

IR File

IR File

The Save As window will appear. Select the folder which contains the component specific folders you setup in step 4 and open it by double clicking on it. Then double click on the folder for the device that corresponds to this captured IR code. On the upper left of the

Save As window appears “*.ir”. Place your cursor behind the “*” and in front of the “.ir”.

Backspace to delete the “*” and then type in an eight character name that describes this function. Then press OK. You have now saved an IR Function File (.ir).

- 8 -

7 Again, press the Learn IR button and learn another command. Follow the instructions in Step 5 & 6 to learn as many commands as you need to. ADA strongly suggests capturing all possible commands, even if you are using a keypad as basic as an MC-

5011 (only 5 functions in addition to On & Off). This way you will be building a library that can be used on other projects.

Note, that after you saved the first ir file, the

Save As window shows a very long name: c:\ada\irl-3000\firstcode.ir

Actually, this is simply the name and location of the previously saved file. Simply high-lite everything other than the “.ir. and now type the name of the next function. Then press OK.

Testing IR Commands

You should test all the functions you have captured to make certain that the capture is accurate. When testing IR commands, only Port 1 of the IRL-5000 is active.

a b c d

If you are using an IR flasher, position it over the first source you are testing.

Remove jumper pin 1 from the DATA/CAR area at the top of the IRL-5000 to engage the IR carrier.

If you are testing a source via its serial connector, leave the jumper in place.

If you are using a source that inverts the serial data, set the jumper pin for Port

1 from Norm to Invert.

Note: When testing IR codes, ADA strongly suggests using an IR flasher to test codes rather than a direct serial connection. As serial connections may require special wiring or grounding (see page 18), testing codes using a flasher will more accurately indicate if the code was learned correctly.

2 Press the Test button located at the bottom left of the window. An Open window will appear showing the folders you created on the right side. On the left side of the window are the codes that you captured. Navigate to the folder you wish to test on the right and then double-click on the desired function you wish to test on the left. Once you double-click on the file name, the Function File is then accessed from the PC through the IRL-5000 to the component.

3 Repeat the steps for each function you captured.

Source Files

Once you have built a library of IR Function Files (.ir) that you have verified to be good during the Test step, you can now apply the Function Files to specific keypad buttons.

Select a Src # button for the first component you want to configure. Once selected the Src # label will turn red or the button will become hi-lighted. Remember, the Src # has nothing to do with the components actual position on the system as each keypad can have its source buttons correspond to any

IRL-5000 port. However, ADA strongly suggests that if the component you are preparing to configure appears as the fifth source on the system, that its commands be configured on the fifth IRL-

5000 port (Src 5). This is essential when using the On/Off options of the IRL-5000.

Select a function button. Once selected, the function label (>>) will turn red.

At the bottom of the ADA Keypad Display, click on the box under Action T/D. A pull down window will appear with the option of either setting a Delay or inserting a Transmit. Pull down to Transmit and click.

Under detail, double-click in the open window.

The Open file window will appear. Navigate to the appropriate folder on the right side of this window. Once in the desired folder, double click on the IR Function File (sdvdplay.ir) and it will appear in the open window under Detail. Note that the window will display the path of the IR

Function File from your C drive through all of your folders.

In the window at the top of the ADA Keypad Display, you can type in a twelve character label to define the function (PLAY). This window will be displayed on the ADA keypads when the function is selected.

If you do not need to make this function a macro repeat steps 2 through 5 for each

Function File you need to configure for this source. For Macros, continue with step seven. If you are ready to program another component, proceed back to step 1.

- 10 -

Marcro’s

For macros, you will typically need to provide some type of delay between IR functions. Click on the

Action T/D window for line 2 at the bottom of the

ADA Keypad Display. Select Delay from the pull down window. In empty area under Detail for this line, enter a value. As the delay is in milli-seconds, a typical low value is 50. For a one second delay, you will need to enter in 1000. Type in the delay you wish to set.

To enter in the next IR Function File, click on the

Action T/D window for line 3 and select Transmit from the pull down window. Double click on the open Detail box for line three and select the IR

Function File for your second macro step.

Repeat steps 7-9 for each macro level you wish to add. As the IRL-5000 permits up sixteen line functions per button and since each additional transmit function requires a delay, you can compile up to an eight step macro (fifteen lines total).

Saving Source Files (.irs)

11 Once you have finished assigning IR Function Files to each button you need for a particular source, you will want to save the source file.

Position the pointer (cursor) over the Src button and click the alternate mouse button. A window will open with two options, Load Source and Save Source. When you select Save

Source, a Save As window will open. With either the option “*.irs” or the path of the last file saved “C;\ada\irl-3000\lastsaved.ir” Simply highlite the “*” or the “C;\ada\irl-3000\lastsaved” and type in the name of the component who’s code set you are saving. Also, use the right side of the Save As window to place this “.irs” file in the appropriate folder (ADA suggests placing these files in the same folder as the “.ir” IR code files.

- 11 -

Loading Source Files (.irs)

12 After you have saved a Source File, you can re-load it on another button. You can also load the source file at some time in the future when configuring another IRL-5000 for a new client. As you proceed with the sales of IRL-3000s, these Source Files, if saved, will permit you to build a library of component files that allow for speedy programming of the IRL-5000.

To load a source file, click the source (Src #) that you wish to load codes onto. With the mouse (cursor) still over the Src button, press the alternate mouse button. The option of Load

File and Save File will appear. Select Load File.

An Open file window will appear. Use the right side of this window to navigate to the file you wish to attach on this Src button. When you find the desired “.irs” file, click on it twice or click on it once and then click the OK button. This “.irs” file will open, attaching all “.ir” codes, labels, and macros. If you wish, you can modify these files or labels.

Saving Customer Files (.ada)

13 Once you have finished the assigning IR Function Files to each button you need, for each IRL-5000 port you are using, you will want to save the customer file. Prior to proceeding with this step, you may want to create a separate folder marked as “Clients”. This folder should sit inside the IRL-5000 Folder. Again, because the

IRL-5000 software is extremely folder specific, creating a clear structure of where to save files, will optimize your use of the IRL-5000.

Under the File heading in the ADA Keypad Display, select Save or Save As. A Save As window will appear permitting you to select the saveto folder on the right and the Save As file name on the left. The file needs to be saved as an eight character name with the suffix, “.ada”.

Depending on what you last saved, the default name will appear as “*.ada” or some other file.

If the default “*.ada” appears, position your cursor between the “*” and “.ada” and backspace to delete the “*”. Then type in the name you wish to use (perhaps a project name or client name) and click OK. If another file name appears, select the entire file name and overwrite it with the client name followed by “.ada”.

- 12 -

Downloading

After you have completed the Component Configuration of tested captured IR commands, you can download the files to the IRL-5000. If you want the keypads to display the function name in their window (PLAY or STOP), you will need to check the Box marked FILL IN FEEDBACK. Also for systems such as the Suite 16 that operate at 19200 Baud, you will also need to selet the 19200 Baud Rate option prior to downloading.

1 In the ADA Keypad Display window click on Options and pull down to select Download.

At this time, the PC will download the IRL-5000, programming it with your codes and function labels.

You can now proceed to test the functions from either an ADA keypad or from the software directly.

2 For testing the commands from the software, disconnect nothing. See the steps below.

3 Testing functions from a keypad. Connect the IRL-5000 to the ADA Bus® (if not already connected). Press the IRL-3000’s ADA/232 button so that is in the up position

(ADA Bus). At this time, the IRL-5000 is ready for use.

Testing Source and Client Files

The IRL-5000 and its software permits you to test the programmed IRL-5000 without having an ADA keypad available. Furthermore, unlike the testing of individual IR commands, even macros, as discussed on 9, this test requires that you use the IRL-5000 ports that you plan to use. All test codes do not come out of port 1.

To test the IRL-5000 in this manner.

Connect your devices to the appropriate IRL-5000 ports and set the jumper pins for that device.

Keep the IRL-5000 button pressed and in the RS-232 mode.

Make certain the IRL-5000 has power.

In the IRL-5000 software, under Options at the top of the screen, select Simulation Mode. The IRL-5000 software will connect to the IRL-5000 and a new window will open that looks similar to the window you have been working on, but is void of the programming options at the bottom.

At this time, you can select IRL-5000 ports, press functions, and check feedback labels. When you are done, select Options at the top of the window and Program Mode.

This will return the IRL-5000 to the program mode from which you can proceed to download the IRL-5000.

Error Messages & Problems

a b c

If you are trying to load or operate the IRL-5000 make certain that the IRL-3000’s ADA/

RS-232 button is in the right position (Down for PC oriented functions, Up for ADA Bus control).

Make certain that correct com port is set in the Progada.ini file.

If you are receiving error messages of any type and your connections are in the proper place, you may need to synchronize the software and IRL-5000 hardware. To do so, switch the ADA Keypad Display software between ADA Mode and Program Mode.

Select either ADA Mode or Program Mode from the Options pull down window. Flip back and forth between these two modes a few times to synchronize software and hardware.

Connection of the IRL-5000 to the Suite 16

In addition to the ADA Bus connections on between the IRL-5000 and the ADA system, you will also wish to connect the 9-pin ribbon cable that triggers the

ON and OFF functions. This cable may also be running to ACC-48 Source AC controllers that connect and disconnect

AC from components when they are not being used. The diagram shows a sixteen source system. Here two IRL-

5000’s are employed, one set to address 1 for sources 1-8 and the second to address 2 for sources 9-16.

If you are using the On and Off functions with ACC-48s, you may wish to apply a 3000ms (3 seconds) to 5000ms

(5 seconds) delay prior to the ON function (see Macros). This will permit the unit to turn on (get AC) prior to the transmission of the IR command.

When using ACC-48s, the OFF function may be rendered useless as the ACC-

48 will remove power to the unit while the unit is receiving the OFF IR command. For components that require an

OFF function, do not use an ACC-48.

Jumper Pin & Trim Pot Settings

The IRL-5000 has several jumper pins and other settings directly on it. To ensure proper operation of the IRL-5000, you will need to set these pins correctly. Depending on whether you are using an IR flasher or direct serial connection, whether you are engaging IR repeating or not, you will need to set jumper pins on the IRL-5000 accurately.

IR Flashers or Serial Connections

When you are using an IR flasher, you will need to off-set the jumper pin (move the jumper pin such that it is covering only one pin) on the IRL-5000. These jumper pins are located in on the

IRL-5000’s surface in the area marked “DATA/CARRIER”. There are a total of eight (8) jumper pins marked 1-8 and these correspond to IRL-5000 outputs 1-8

IR - S respectively. For IRL-5000 ports which are using an IR flasher, off-set just these pins. For sources controlled via a direct serial connection, make certain that the jumper pin is covering (shunt-

IR Repeating

Each of the eight IRL-5000 ports can be set to IR repeat independently of one another. This means, that the components original

IR remote control (or some type of learning remote) can be aimed at an ADA IR receiver, and the signal will be passed along the system bus, through the IRL-5000 and out to the source. The ability to independently select IR repeating per output is especially useful when using several identical components on the sys-

2 tem. For example, if you had three DSS receivers on one IRL-5000, you could permit DSS #1 to be controlled via IR repeating while DSS #2 & #3 are controlled from keypads only. If you do not want any IR repeating, simply put the jumper pin located under the word “REPEAT” in the vertical position. By doing so, IR repeating is inactive for this port.

If you want IR repeating, you will need to set this jumper pin to the left (IR) or right (serial) specific to the connection of this port to the component. Also, there is an IR repeating frequency adjustment pot. This is set to around 40KHz but permits adjustment to slightly higher or lower frequencies. This trim pot only

IR Repeating Only adjusts the carrier level for IR repeating and has nothing to do with

IR commands captured and downloaded to the IRL-5000.

When using a serial connection to a source component, the normal/inverted data jumper pin

R also needs to be set correctly in order for the IRL-5000 to control the component. When using a Serial connector, a source that does not invert its data (Sony or other similar sources) or

when using an IR flasher, this jumper pin should be set to the left above the word “NORM”.

If you are using a serial connection for sources that invert their data (Pioneer or other similar), you need to set this jumper pin to the right above the word “INVERT”. If you are using a

flasher, the pin must be set to the left above the word “NORM”. When using a serial connection, it is important to note that some components only ground through their

RCA jacks. If not connected to a system, the source will need to ground from a chassis screw to Pin 1 on the IRL-5000’s ADA Bus jack.

Serial Connections & Grounding Issues

Several source components are not grounded or are only grounded if the source’s RCA audio jjacks are connected to a grounded component. As such, direct serial control may not be possible without the connection of an alternate ground. Since many IRL-3000s may be programmed and tested with the sources away from the system’s installation, it will be necessary to apply a ground. The diagram below shows a Pioneer component grounded to Pin 1 (Gnd) on the IRL-5000’s ADA Bus connector. Please note, that not every chassis screw will act as an addequate ground. Typically, the pink chassis screws make for the best grounding point.

Sony components with “S” type serial connectors can be connected to the IRL-5000 using the following pin connections.
