Introduction
The S5x family of Eiconcards are ISA cards that offer X.25
connectivity through one or two (depending on the the Eiconcard
model) high-speed ports (supporting V.24, V.35, or X.21 interfaces)
at speeds of up to 512 Kbps, and/or through an ISDN BRI port
(Eiconcard S51) at speeds of up to 128 kbps (over the “D” channel
or the “B” channels).
Note The Eiconcard S5x also supports protocols such as SDLC,
PPP, and Frame Relay.
All Eiconcards have been tested and found to comply with
the Electromagnetic compatibility, Safety and Network
connection regulations within the European Union, North
America, and other major territories. Read the regulatory
information on page 29 before installing and using your
adapter.

to 512 Kbps per port (depending on the type of interface selected).
The ISDN BRI port supports transfer rates of up to 128 kbps (over
the “D” channel or the “B” channels).
Power Consumption
Warning: Check that power supply will not be overloaded. Maximum
power consumption of the board is stated above. The user should
check that the total power drawn by the host computer, the
Eiconcard S5x, and any other peripherals, does not exceed the
capability of the host power supply unit.
Introduction
5
Installing the Eiconcard S5x
Follow the steps below to install the Eiconcard S5x. If you want the
Eiconcard S5x to be available to multiple users on a LAN, install it
in the PC that will function as a gateway for the LAN.
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 Prepare the Eiconcard
Prepare the Eiconcard S5x by selecting its I/O address and
communications interface.
a) Set the I/O address. The default I/O address is 380h. You only
need to change this setting if another card already installed in
the PC uses an I/O address in the range 380h to 387h. To
change the I/O address, follow the instructions in “Setting the
I/O Address” on page 22, then continue with Step 1(b) below.
b) Select the interface. The default setting enables the V.24 and
V.35 interfaces; to use these interfaces, continue with Step 2
below. To enable the X.21 interface instead, follow the
instructions in “Selecting an Interface” on page 24, then
continue with Step 3.
3 Install the Eiconcard S5x
Drain static electricity from your body by touching the metal
chassis (the unpainted metal at the back of your PC).
b) Locate a slot in your PC that has the same bus type as your
adapter.
If your PC has both ISA and PCI slots, the ISA slots are longer,
as shown.
a)
metal plates
PCI slots

Installing the Eiconcard S5x
If there is a metal plate at the end of the slot, remove it and keep
the screw.
d) Firmly insert the adapter into the selected slot.
To avoid damaging your hardware, insert the adapter
only into a slot with the same bus type as the adapter.
Inserting the adapter into any other type of slot can
damage your adapter, your PC, or both.
c)

Fasten the adapter with the screw (to ensure that the adapter
is properly secured and grounded to the PC’s chassis).
f) Replace the cover of your PC as described in your PC’s
manual.
g) Reconnect the power cable.
Note Although the Eiconcard S5x can be installed in any available
ISA expansion slot (unless the PC’s documentation specifies
otherwise), it is recommended that you install the card in a 16-bit
slot to take advantage of the higher IRQs and memory-address
locations available only through 16-bit slots.
e)
4 Set the interrupt request level and memory segment address
These parameters are set using the Eicon Networks networking
software that you purchased with the Eiconcard S5x. Consult the
documentation included with the networking software for
instructions on how to configure the Eiconcard.
To determine the correct interrupt request level and memory
segment address values to use, follow the instructions in “Software
Configuration” on page 25, then continue with Step 5.

5 Test the Eiconcard S5x
The application software purchased with the Eiconcard S5x
contains a test program to verify the card’s integrity. Consult the
documentation supplied with this software for details.
6 Connect to the outside world
You are now ready to connect the Eiconcard S5x to the outside
world.
• To set up ISDN connections, consult “Making an ISDN Connection” on page 9.
• To set up an HSI connection, consult “Making an HSI Connection” on page 13.

Installing the Eiconcard S5x
Making an ISDN Connection
Note Only the Eiconcard S51 supports ISDN connections.
After you have installed your Eiconcard S51, connect your ISDN
line.
• If you plan to use an Eicon Networks NT1, see “Connecting to
an Eicon Networks NT1,” below.
• If you plan to use a third party NT1 or if you are installing the
Eiconcard S51 outside of North America, see “Making an HSI
Connection” on page 13.
Connecting to an Eicon Networks NT1
To connect to an Eicon Networks NT1, plug one end of the Interface
Cable for ISDN NT1 into the DIN-4 port on the Eiconcard S51; plug
the other end into the DIN-4 port on the NT1. Figure 3 shows how
to make these connections.

Connecting to a Third Party NT1
To connect to a third party NT1, you must use the ISDN S/T Cable.
This cable includes interface circuitry which is not normally provided
by the third party NT1 (but which is provided by Eicon’s NT1).
Plug the ISDN S/T Cable into the DIN-4 port on the card as
illustrated in Figure 4.
• In North America and Australia, you may need to insert the
RJ-45 plug into the terminating resistor, and then insert the
terminating resistor into the S/T connector. The next section,
“Termination,” explains when to use the terminating resistor.
• In the rest of the world, insert the RJ-45 plug directly into the S/T
connector. Do not install the terminating resistor.
Plug the other end of the RJ-45 cable into the S/T port on your NT1.
Figure 4 shows how the ISDN S/T Cable, the terminating resistor
(when required), and the RJ-45 plug connect together.

The interface cable contains fully passive components and does not
affect the energy consumption or other specifications of the
Eiconcard. This passive interface is required to ensure regulatory
compliance and guarantee proper functionality.

Connecting to a Third Party NT1
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 S51 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 S51), 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
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 ISDN S/T cable (see, “Connecting the
ISDN S/T Cable” on page 10.

Termination
Making an HSI Connection
The Eiconcard S5x can connect as a DTE to devices such as Data
Service Units (DSUs) which support one of the following interfaces:
V.24, V.35, or X.21. It can also connect directly to a host computer,
or back-to-back to another Eiconcard. Each HSI port is configured
independently
Table 1 lists the most common connections supported by the HSI
port, and specifies the part number of the required Eicon Networks
cable. For information on making your own cables, see “Interface
Specifications” on page 14.

When you make connections through a null-modem cable—for
example, to a DTE or to the HSI port on another Eiconcard—one
card must be set to internal clocking, and the other to external
clocking.
Consult the documentation which came with your networking
software for more information about port configuration.

Cable Construction Information
If you plan to construct your own HSI cables, be sure to observe the
guidelines given below.
Wire Gauge, Grounding, and Pairing
• Use 26 or 24 AWG wire. Contacts should be 30 microinch gold
flash.
• The cable must be grounded both by a drain wire connected to
pin 1 on both sides (pin A on the type M connector) and by the
braid. Both the drain wire and the braid must be connected to
the connector case and shell at each end of the cable. The braid
must be connected through its full circumference.
• Unused wires must be connected to the cable shield at one end.
• Use an anti-EMI shield.
• Important. Wires identified by a rectangle under the heading
“Twisted pair” must be installed as a twisted pair. If you do not
install twisted pairs correctly, the cable will not work.
Type of Connectors
The HSI port accepts a 26-pin, 3-row male connector. The types of
connectors used on the interface-specific end of the cable are as
follows:

Setting the I/O Address
The Eiconcard S5x is shipped with the I/O address set to 380h. This
setting only needs to be changed if another card in your PC uses an
I/O address in the range 380h to 387h.
You can set the Eiconcard to use any of the standard I/O addresses
listed in Table 7. Remember that no other card can use the same
address, or the next seven higher values (for example, if you choose
378, no other card can use any value from 378 to 385).

If you are installing more than one Eiconcard in the PC, be sure to
read about the additional address options described on the next
page.
To change the preset I/O address value, adjust the switches shown
in Figure 12 to match the values given in Table 7.
Hold the card as shown when
setting the I/O address, to
ensure the switches are oriented
correctly.

Appendix
Setting I/O Addresses when Installing Multiple Eiconcards
If you are installing two or more Eiconcards in the PC, for every
Eiconcard installed at a primary I/O address, you can install one at
a secondary I/O address. This reduces the number of I/O addresses
consumed since primary and secondary I/O addresses occupy the
same position in the PC I/O address space.
Primary and secondary I/O addresses differ in the setting of
switch 1, as described in Table 8. To select a secondary I/O
address, set switch 1 to the ON position.

Table 8. I/O Address Selection
Note A secondary I/O address cannot be used if its associated
primary address conflicts with another card. Always verify that each
card installed in your PC has a unique I/O address.
Setting the I/O Address

Selecting an Interface
The Eiconcard S5x is capable of connecting as a DTE to devices
which support the V.24, V.35, or X.21 interface. It can also connect
directly to a host computer or back-to-back to another Eiconcard.
The Eiconcard S5x is shipped with the HSI port set to the V.24 and
V.35 interfaces. If you wish to use the X.21 interface, you must
reposition the jumper located next to the HSI connector.
To change the jumper from position A (V.24/V.35) to position B
(X.21), lift it straight up off the board, then position it above the
center and rightmost rows of pins. Carefully press it down onto the
pins. Figure 13 shows the jumper in position B.
If you find the jumper hard to move, use a small slotted screwdriver
to edge it up gradually from each side until you can lift it off.

B
To select the X.21 interface,
position the jumper on the two
rows of pins to the right of the “A”
printed on the Eiconcard.

Software Configuration
Use the information below to assign the card’s interrupt request
level and memory segment address.
Interrupt Request Level
Only one device can use each interrupt request level (IRQ). Make
sure you assign an unused IRQ to the Eiconcard S5x. The usual
assignment of IRQs in a PC is listed in Table 9. You may be able to
make additional IRQs available by disabling serial port 2 and parallel
port 2. Consult your PC manual for details.

Table 9. Usual Interrupt Request Level Assignments
Memory Segment Addresses
Some 16-bit peripheral cards (such as LAN adapters) use memory
windows—areas of contiguous memory which fall somewhere
within one of three 128k memory group addresses (A000-BFFF,
C000-DFFF, and E000-FFFF). If such a card is installed in your PC,
the entire 128k memory group which contains the card’s memory
window is unavailable to the Eiconcard S5x and other 8-bit cards.
For example, if you have a LAN card using a memory window at
C800-CFFF, the Eiconcard S5x could not use any address in the
range C000-DFFF.
You may be able to resolve conflicts by configuring 16-bit cards as
8-bit cards. Check the manufacturer’s documentation for details.

Important Safety Considerations When Installing Into A Host
Computer System
The Eiconcard S5x 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.
