_Data-Link 33.6 Dual Modem Card
This section is to familiarize the user with the operation of a modem. Note: <CR> indicates
that the user must press the return key after a command sequence.
The modem
A modem is a device that allows two terminals (DTE, PC...) to communicate via a
telecommunication line (phone line).
The data 1s converted by the modem into electrical signals adapted to the telecommunication
network. This conversion is called modulation and demodulation.
Various conversion techniques have been developed to speed-up the data flow. The different
speeds are particular to each type of modulation: 300 bps in V21, 2400 bps in V22bis, 14400
bps in V32bis, 19200 bps in V32terbo and 33600 bps in V34.
The modem-fax
A fax device transmits scanned images via the telephone network.
In addition to traditional fax machines, the fax modem also allows transfer of computer data
such as:
e ASCII files from a text processor,
e PCX or TIF files from a graphic editor, etc.
The Fax mode operation is controlled by a fax software which:
e Converts files to T4 format (fax graphic format),
e Transmits and receives faxes,
e Supervises fax modem operation.
Supervision of the fax modem is carried out by a standard protocol: "Asynchronous Facsimile
DCE Control Standard", Class 1 Service - TR 29.2188 or Class 2 Service - TR 29.2388.
The computer equipped with a fax modem will be able to transmit and receive fax in Group
HI mode:
e At about one A4 page per minute,
e In fine or standard resolution.
See Specifications section, page 22, for the list of modem class | and 2 commands.
Calling modes dialing
The modem can be in 2 modes:
e Send or calling,
e Receive or answer.
6 € SALES: 0118 965 5100
Data-Link 33.6 Dual Modem Card
Calling Mode
The modem switches to originate mode when the dial command: ATD 37487126 is sent
(example number).
The calling modem then waits for the remote modem to respond.
Answering Mode
The modem switches to answer mode when it detects ringing on the phone line.
The answer is carried out automatically if the command ATS0 = 2 was sent to the modem by
the local PC. À training sequence is then initiated. À training sequence is the handshake
sequence between modems to establish a communication link. It establishes speed, modes...
Two types of protocols can be used to improve communication performance between two
e Error correction:
e MNP4 or V42 detect errors which occurred during data transmission, and either
correct them or re-transmit the data.
e [Data compression:
e MNPS5 or V42bis compress the data and thus transmit at a higher effective speed.
These two types of protocols improve efficiency and reliability of a connection.
Beyond these basic principles, the modem offers other functions, aimed at improving
performance and ease of use.
These functions are controlled via the memory (S-Registers) of the modem, and are available
via the extended AT command set.
These functions are described in security and memory section, page 18, of this manual.
Some of the extra functions are:
Storage of phone numbers,
Forced V24 signals,
Exchange of a password between two modems ("Answer Back"),
Pre-qualification of the telephone line,
Storage of user modem configuration.

Rackmount version
Package Contents:
Before installing your modem, check all these items are present:
One MDU905C card
Two RJ11 phone cables
Two RJ45/DB25 cables
AT command set reference manual
User manual
Software (as an option)
The busy out function forces the line to be active when there is:
A faulty power supply,
No answer to a call after N rings (N is set by the S20 register). This maybe due to a
non-connected data terminal (DTR/108 absent).
N successive ineffective connection sequences (N is set by the S20 register). This
maybe due to a bad connection to the telephone line.
This option is particularly useful for line pooling applications, and in case of fault, incoming
calls are switched to another modem in the pool.
Your MDU905C board provides an interface to the CF1 controller board that is an option to
your Data-Link rack. Refer to the CF1 manual for managing the MDU905C modem through
the CFI board.
See rack operation manual to install your modem.
Find an empty location in the rack and insert the MDU905C card into its card guide.
Connect your modem from the rear of the rack, according to the following diagram:
Data-Link 33.6 Dual Modem Card
Power On:
Inserting the modem card connects it to the power supply of the rack. Power-on is carried out
by the power switch located at the rear of the rack.
Power-up self-test
When the modem is turned on, an automatic self-test is performed, which tests:
e [ts program memory
[ts data memory
[ts stored memory
Its data processing unit
The test lasts a few seconds and ends with a series of:
e Different tones if the test is ok,
e The same tone if a failure is detected. This failure is detailed by the ATi7 command.
See page 26, "Troubleshooting".
Operating modes
Operating modes
The modem can operate in one of the four following modes:
e The modem enters the idle mode after powering up if it passes its power-up self test.
Beeps announcing the end of the test can be heard unless the speaker is turned off (see
corresponding command).
e From this mode, the modem will enter in command mode by receiving a command
from the DTE, or in ONLINE mode if an automatic call is initiated from the front
panel, or if a call is received when the modem is configured to answer calls.
e The modem enters the command mode when it receives a recognized command. In
this mode, commands are interpreted and executed. (Configuration set up - automatic
call request...). The modem also enters in command mode when it recognizes an
escape sequence in the data when in an on-line rude.
TECHNICAL: 0118 965 6000 o 9
Data-Link 33.6 Dual Modem Card
e The on-line mode starts, when detecting a carrier signal from a remote modem or
when dialling is successfully completed.
e The test mode is selected when in a command mode using appropriate test commands.
The Front Panel
The front panel of the modem has six red LEDs and two push buttons. The different LEDs
indicate the state of the modem and the status of the self test sequence.
The following table list these functions:
Indicators | Circuit | Function
DTR 1/2 108 Indicates that the data terminal equipment connected
to the modem is ready for data communication (also
bad Ram during power up test).
CD 1/2 109 Indicates that the remote modem's carrier signal has
been received by the modem. In test mode, this light
will flash if the test is negative. Also flashes if bad
ram during power up test.
DATA 1/2 103/104 | Flashes as data is transmitted by the modem.

The Push Button Mode V2
The MODE push button programs different functions depending on the current
mode: |
[n Command Mode:
e Performs automatic dialling of the number stored in memory or holds the line
in originate mode if no number was stored, or starts answering if rings were
detected on the line. The length of the press is signalled by a single flash of
the DSR LED. a
e A twosecond push holds the line in answer mode. The length of this push is
signalled by two flashes of the DSR LED. da
e If the button is pressed for more than 10 seconds (three flashes of the DSR IMOE I

This section describes commonly used configurations through the AT command set: These
commands may be used as part of software drivers for example.
Factory configuration
This configuration applies when the modem is first powered on, or after complete reset by the
following commands:
AT& W255 <CR>
e Answer: OK
oe ATZ <CR>
e Answer: OK
This configuration is designed for most common applications and has the following
DTE - V24:
e Normal CD, DTR,
e DSR activated on handshake,
e CTS controlled by DTR in command mode and RTS in on line mode.
Automatic answer SÓ = 2
Automatic hunt: V34, V32bis, V32, V22bis, V21 and V23 modes
Error correction and data compression: V42bis and MNP automatic mode (S0?)
Flow control: RTS/CTS
This configuration can be modified for a specific application. The following examples
describe the most common applications.
Rate and connection mode selection
The MDU905C provides several solutions to determine the mode of connection.
e Selecting connection mode for speeds of 2400 to 19200bps: the modem can connect
these speeds in V34 mode or in older V22, V22Bis, V32Bis or V32 is modes. The AT
@OM command selects the wanted mode of connection This command should be left
as (@OM3 for automatic mode adaptation since the V34 mode is designed to
recognise V32 / V32Bis remote modems during the handshake.
e Auto baud: the modem recognises automatically the speed and the data format of the
terminal when it sends an AT command. If the 'full' auto baud is active - AT (VA! -
then the modem will adapt the connection rate to the nearest lower connection speed.
This is the default factory configuration. The auto baud must be changed to select a
special speed. It can be limited to the DTE auto baud - AT @A2 - which means that
the modem still recognises the terminal data format and speed but does not change the
connection rate. Alternatively, it can be disabled - AT @AO - which means that both
the DTE data format and speed, and connection mode are selected by Commands.

Error correction and data compression:
The modem is set in default factory configuration in automatic mode so that it can negotiate
the best protocol with the remote modem.
Flow control should be configured in asynchronous mode to avoid loss of received data.
The following commands apply:
Command Function
*MO direct mode, no protocol. The modem is transparent to the transferred
data. No flow control is possible. The XON.XOFF flow control is
passed over the line.
“M1 Normal, no protocol. The modem buffers transferred data. Flow control
can be RTS-CTS or XON XOFF.
“Me Automatic. The modem tries to negotiate V42 or MNP modes
Exclusive. The modem only accepts connection in the configured
“M3 protocol.
*T Protocol type : MNP (*T1), V42 (*T2), automatic (*T3).
*G Error alarm : the internal high speaker may beep when it detects an
errored packet in the received data flow (*G0 : disable, *G1 : enable).
Flow control:
Through Xon-Xoff : :
AT *LGI generates a local Xon-Xoff,
AT *LRI answers to the local Xon-Xoff
These commands are the original commands. For compatibility with standard general
purpose modems the following command may be used: AT &K4
Through RTS-CTS:
AT *LG2 generates a CTS flow control
AT * LR2 answers to the RTS flow control
АТ %С! sets the CTS signal for flow control
ATER! sets the RTS signal for flow control
The *LG and %LR commands are the original commands. For compatibility with standard
general purpose modems the following command may be used: AT &K3
Automatic dialing directory
Each port of the MDU90SC has a non-volatile memory that allows the user to store
frequently used numbers. Each phone number can have a name and control sequence
associated. Therefore, instead of remembering every number, the user can type in the
recipient name, thus greatly easing the task of making a connection.

e The ATDSn command dials the stored telephone number specified by n where n is 0
to 99.
e By CCITT 108/1 operation. The modem autodials a stored number when an off-to-on
transition of the DTR occurs. The modem disconnects when an on to off transition of
the DTR occurs. AT&D1 command selects the dialling mode of the DTR signal.
e By the phone number name by the ATD$name command.
Saving user configurations
The MDU905C modem can store up to 2 user configurations.
The AT& Wn command saves the current configuration in non-volatile memory (n = 0 or |).
This configuration is saved even when the modem is turned off. The modem will load the last
saved user configuration at power-up.
V54 — Maintenance
The MDU905C modem provides V54 loop test functions.
The A terminal can monitor the following tests:
Analogue local loop or B3: the A modem connects on its own carrier. The A terminal
can check characters it sends are well returned. The good operation of the A modem is
Remote digital loop or B2: the B modem sends back all characters received from the
line. The A terminal can test the entire link to the remote modem.

may be started by the following commands:
e AT&TI: simple loop. The modem connects and sends a CONNECT xxxx message.
All characters sent by the A terminal are sent back after modulation.
e AT&TS: in the same kind of local loop the A modem sends and checks automatically
test characters. The error counter is displayed at the end of test.

Data-Link 33.6 Dual Modem Card
Inactivity password
The modem asks for a password when no data passes through it for a presented delay. If this
password matches the operator or supervisor password stored in memory then the modem
will reconnect otherwise it will drop the line.
$32: number of minutes of inactivity that will start the password request.
$96: number of seconds that the modem will wait for the password.
AT%ST 0/1: number of password trials (0: one trial / |: three trials).
AT%In: inactivity is detected if:
n=0: no detection, i.e. feature is disabled.
n=1: detects transmitted data inactivity.
n=2: detects received data inactivity.
n=3: detects both received and transmitted data in activities.
AT%PS: SUPER: SUPER: stores the supervisor password, (SUPER as an example).
AT%PO: OPE:OPE: stores the operator password (OPE as an example).

Automatic call & answer
Automatic dialing or calling by the originating modem is initiated by:
e "AT" or V25bis commands
Push button on front panel
DTR 108/1 being enabled
Pulse or tone dialing.
Tone recognition occurs when there 15:
e A dial request (public network or private exchange).
e A busy line.
e The call monitoring by the internal high speaker can be disabled.
Answering a Call
When the modem is set in answer mode, it will go off hook after 2 rings (if the command
ATS0=2 is sent). This is in conformity with CCITT V25bis recommendation.

Connection - Disconnection
In calling mode, the modem will automatically recognize the remote modem modulation type
and adapt correspondingly.
It will disconnect only if:
e The carrier is lost,
e No carrier tone is detected within 35 to 90 seconds,
е No data activity has occurred for the selected period of time dictated by the Inactivity
Serial interface
The V24 serial interface of the modem conforms to the DCE specifications. A straight ribbon
cable is all that is needed to connect to the DTE port of your computer or terminal. The serial
port will automatically recognize DTE speeds up to | 15200 bps. This is called auto-bauding.
Automatic Call and Answer

Appendix B - Country specific information
UK | Although this equipment can use either loop disconnect or DTMF signaling, only
the performance of the DTMF signaling is subject to regulatory requirements for
correct operation. It is therefore strongly recommended that the equipment is set
to use DTMF signaling for access to public or private emergency services. DTMF
signaling also provides faster call set up.
