EiconCard P92 Installation Guide
203086-1.FM5 Page 5 Friday, February 28, 1997 10:35 AM
Introduction
This guide describes how to install the EiconCard P92 card in any
computer with a PCI-compatible bus.
The EiconCard P92 allows stand-alone PCs or multiple users on a
Local Area Network (LAN) to make very high speed connections to
a Wide Area Network (WAN). These connections are typically made
through the EiconCard P92 to external communications equipment
(including CSUs, DSUs, and synchronous and asynchronous
modems) to provide access to WAN lines. Direct connections to a
host computer or to another EiconCard are also supported.
Hardware Features
The EiconCard P92 features a 10MHz Hitachi 64570 controller and
512 KB of on-board RAM. It has two independent Very High-Speed
Interface (VHSI) ports, supporting full duplex communications over
a V.24, V.35, EIA-530, V.36/RS-449, or X.21 interface at speeds of
up to 2 Mbps per port, depending on the type of interface selected.
Ease of Use
No interface selection is required beyond connecting the appropriate
cable to the EiconCard P92. The intelligent controller on the card
detects which interfaces the cable supports and automatically
configures that port accordingly.

Installing the EiconCard P92
The steps below describe how to install the EiconCard P92.
1 Prepare the PC
Turn off the PC and disconnect its power cable. Remove the cover of
the PC according to the instructions that came with it.
2 Install the EiconCard P92
Insert the EiconCard P92 in any available PCI port. Secure the
adapter to the chassis of the PC using the bracket-retaining screw.
Reinstall the cover of the PC and reconnect the power cable.
3 Test the EiconCard P92
The application software that you purchased with the EiconCard P92
contains a test program to verify the card’s integrity. Consult the
documentation supplied with this software for details.
4 Configure the EiconCard P92
Before you can use the EiconCard P92, you must configure it to work
with your communications software. The documentation which came
with this software contains complete instructions
on how to configure the card. During
LED 1
configuration, note the following:
• The ports are numbered Port 1 and Port 2 as
indicated in Figure 1.
• The LEDs indicate connection and
configuration status. For a description of
connection status indications, see page 8.
For a description of how the LEDs are used
during configuration, consult the
documentation which came with your
networking software.

Selecting an Interface
The EiconCard P92 can connect as a DTE to devices such as Data
Service Units (DSUs) which support one of the following interfaces:
V.24, V.35, EIA-530, V.36/RS-449, or X.21. It can also connect
directly to a host computer, or back-to-back to another EiconCard.
Each VHSI port is configured independently.
Table 1 lists the most common connections for each interface, and
gives the part number of the required Eicon Technology cable. For
information on making your own cables, see “Interface
Specifications,” on page 9.

Connection Status Indicators
The green LED adjacent to each port on the EiconCard P92—see
Figure 1 on page 6—provides a convenient indication of the status of
the connection on that port. The LED indicates the status as follows:
LED State
Connection Status
Remedy
Off
The port is not loaded (the configuration
file describing protocol and interface
parameters has not been read by the
device driver on the PC).
Consult your networking
software for instructions on
how to load a configuration file
and how to start a connection.
Rapid Flash
(stays on for
1/2 second)
The connection has not been established.
Either the port is loading OR there is no
response from the destination device
OR the EiconCard P92 is waiting for a
VHSI cable to be connected to the port.
Verify that the cable is
properly connected to the port.
If the light continues flashing
after a few minutes, verify that
the destination device is active.
Slow Flash
(stays on for
1 second)
The connection was interrupted
unexpectedly. The cable was unplugged
or damaged while a connection was
active.
Reconnect the cable.
On
The port is active and the connection
is good.

Cable Construction Information
If you plan to construct your own VHSI cables, be sure to observe the
guidelines given below.
Wire Gauge, Grounding, and Pairing
• Use 28 AWG 7-strand wire with 0.020–0.028" insulation.
• The chassis must be grounded both by a drain wire and by the
braid; both must be connected to the connector case and shell at
each end of the cable. The braid must be connected through its
full circumference.
• Wires identified under the heading “Twisted Pairs” must be
paired. If you do not install twisted pairs correctly, the cable will
not work.
Type of Connectors
The VHSI port accepts a high density 36-pin male cable connector.
The types of connector used on the interface-specific end of the cable
are as follows:
Interface
Connector
V.35
Type M
V.24
DB25
V.36/RS-449
DB37
EIA-530

Important Safety Considerations When Installing Into A Host
Computer System
The EiconCard P92 is a half-length PCI compatible card.
The EiconCard P92 is approved only for installation in an EN60950 approved host,
surrounded by a minimum 2.5 mm air gap, and with host attachments which are
either type approved for such apparatus, or, if supplied after March 1, 1989, are
marked with or supplied with a statement that the host is supplied under: GENERAL
APPROVAL NUMBER NS/G/1234/J/100003.
Installation Within A Spare Slot Position
In order to comply with Safety Regulations particular care should be taken to ensure
adequate separation between the EiconCard P92, the components mounted on it, and
any adjacent modules.
Except at the edge connector which plugs into the host’s expansion slot, clearance
and creepage distances of X mm and Y mm, as listed in Table 10, must be maintained
between the EiconCard P92 card and other parts of the host including any other
expansion cards fitted.
