Making an ISDN Connection
Note Only the Eiconcard C91 supports ISDN connections.
After you have installed your Eiconcard C91, connect your ISDN
line.
In Europe and most countries worldwide
In Europe as well as most countries outside of North America and
Japan, your Eiconcard C91 adapter can be connected directly to
your ISDN line using the included cable.

In North America and Others
In North America and some other countries (check with your ISDN
provider), you need an NT1 (network terminating device) to connect
your ISDN line. However, depending on your Eiconcard C91
interface, the NT1 might be integrated into the adapter. Follow the
instructions for your adapter (with U-interface or S/T-interface).
Note North American and Australian Eiconcard C91 S/T users may
need to adjust the Eiconcard C91 termination. Refer to the section
“Termination” on page 11, for more information.

Making an ISDN Connection
Eiconcard C91 U-interface:
If your Eiconcard C91 has a U-interface, the NT1 is integrated into
the adapter, and you do not need a separate NT1.

3 Plug the RJ-11 end into the ISDN wall jack.
Note In North America, many ISDN wall jacks (with a U-interface)
are RJ-11. However, if your ISDN wall jack is RJ-45, you can still
plug the RJ-11 end of the cable into your RJ-45 ISDN wall jack
(there will be some space on both sides of the plug).

Termination
This section applies to S/T interface users in Australia and North
America, and provides instructions to help set up termination
scenarios. Termination requirements vary according to: the number
of devices connected to the NT1; and the distance between the
devices and the NT1.
For users who require termination, the Eiconcard C91 S/T has been
shipped with a separate terminating resistor. For information on how
to install the terminating resistor, see “Installing a Terminating
Resistor” on page 12.
How do I determine the termination value?
Single ISDN Device
If the NT1 is connected to a single ISDN device (e.g.
Eiconcard C91), follow the instructions below.
75 meters or more
If the connection spans 75 meters (250 feet) or more, connect the
100 ohm terminating resistor included with the ISDN cable. Set the
NT1 to provide 100 ohms of resistance. Consult the manual
provided with the external NT1 for more detailed instructions.
Note Some NT1s do not support connections over 75 meters (250
feet). Check your user documentation to determine the distance
supported.
75 meters or less
If the connection spans less than 75 meters (250 feet), set the NT1
to 50 ohms of resistance, and do not connect the terminating
resistor. Consult the manual provided with the external NT1 for more
detailed instructions.
Termination
11
Multiple ISDN Devices
If the NT1 is connected to more than one ISDN device, follow the
procedures below.
75 meters or more
If the connection spans 75 meters (250 feet) or more, both end
devices on the ISDN bus must be set to 100 ohm termination. If the
Eiconcard is one of the end devices, connect the 100 ohm
terminating resistor included with the ISDN cable. Consult the
manuals provided with the other ISDN devices and NT1 for more
details.
Note Some NT1s do not support connections over 75 meters (250
feet). Check your user documentation to determine the distance
supported
75 meters or less
If the connection spans less than 75 meters (250 feet), set the NT1
to 50 ohms of resistance, and do not connect the terminating
resistor. Set the other ISDN devices to no termination. Consult the
manuals provided with the NT1 and other ISDN devices for more
detailed instructions.
Installing a Terminating Resistor
If termination is required and your Eiconcard C91 does not have the
built in termination switch, you should have been supplied with a 100
ohm terminating resistor. The terminating resistor is installed by
inserting the RJ-45 end of the ISDN cable into the terminating
resistor, and then inserting the terminating resistor into the wall jack.

Important Safety Considerations When Installing Into A Host
Computer System
The Eiconcard C9x is a single PCI card.
Installation Within A Spare Slot Position
Warning: It is essential that, when other option cards are introduced
which use or generate a hazardous voltage, the minimum creepages
and clearances specified in the table below are maintained. Suitable
user protection to ensure compliance with EN60950/A4 should be
present on the card. A hazardous voltage is one which exceeds 42.4V
peak a.c or 60V d.c. If you have any doubt, seek advice from a
competent engineer before installing other adapters into the host
equipment.
The equipment must be installed such that with the exception of the
connections to the host, clearance and creepage distances shown in the table
below are maintained between the card and any other assemblies which use
or generate a voltage shown in the table below.
