Com Port Configuration

Configuring the com ports on the IX / PCA is a little different that older models and make note that the Port that is configurable and the Pin-out of the port has changed.

The Configurable port is now Port 1

To configure port one, you must change both dip switch settings and set the port mode (RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485) in the Bios settings. The unit is shipped with both Com 1 and 2 set to RS-232 mode. RS-232 uses the standard Pin-out but Com1 as RS-422 or RS-485 is different than older products.

Download the user manual from the link below to get step by step instructions on the location of and switch configurations needed to set the mode for Com Port 1 as well as detailed Pin-out diagrams and comparisons to existing products.
