    Chapter 1: INTRODUCTION The RS-232 Five Port Expandable Smart Switch, Model 232XS5, allows one RS-232 host device to connect to as many as five RS-232 devices. The switch can be controlled in three different ways. The first way is referred to as smart switch mode or code activated switch mode.

    Expander mode. To change the settings on the switch, remove the power from the unit, and remove the screws (4) from the bottom of the 232XS5. The dipswitch is located on the top of the PC board (side with LED’s) and is labeled “SW1.” The other dipswitch, labeled “SW2”...

    Data Carrier Detect (DCD) <-------> Signal Ground (SG) The 232XS5 supports the following RS-232 signals: TD, RD, SG, RTS, CTS, DCD, DSR and DTR. NOTE: All other lines are not connected. The Smart Switch selects port A as the default port at power up.

  • Page 6: Chapter 3: Smart Switch Operation, Programming The Second Character, Binary File Transfer

    The 232XS5 requires a three character preamble code to turn on and off a port. The first character must be the ASCII escape character (decimal 27).

  • Page 7: Smart Switch/port Combiner Mode, Enhanced Timer Mode -- Timer Features, Expansion Mode, Chapter 4: Software

    The timer has two different modes: an inactivity mode and an inadvertent switch mode. When in inactivity mode, the 232XS5 will monitor the data lines. If there is no activity for the specified time, the selected slave port will be disconnected from the master port.

  • Page 10: Introduction, Installation, Setup, Default Values, Selecting Ports

    The Smart Switch program will prompt the user for the Module that is in use the first time that the software is run. After the proper Module (i.e. PortMUX, 232XS5,etc.) is selected then a window specific to that Module will appear and the user may personalize communication parameters as per their specific needs.
