3–3 Baud Rate Specification
You must configure the baud rate and
communications settings on each RS485 port to
match the baud rate on the attached RS485
network. The Gateway supports RS485 speeds of
1200 baud, 2400 baud, 4800 baud, 9600 baud and
19.2 Kbaud. Default settings are 19.2 Kbaud, 8 data
bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.
Each network’s baud rate depends on the devices
attached to it – see GEH-6502, the PMCS Network
, for more details on this.
To configure the baud rate and communications
settings for any of the four RS485 ports, follow
Section 3-1, referencing the special instructions
given below regarding the communications options.
Table 5 lists the valid entries for options 1 through
8 of the Configuration menu, relating to the baud
rate and communications settings of RS485 ports.
