Appendix E: Optional – Daisy-Chaining

The RS-232 Connection to the first board in the daisy-chain is made through the 9-pin D-Sub

connector or RJ-11 input (J1). Use an appropriate adapter to connect a 9-pin or 25-pin D-

Sub at a PC to the RJ-11 input. A straight-through RJ-11 to RJ-11 cable is used to connect

from the RJ-11 output (J2) of the first board to the input of the next board in the daisy-chain.

Set each board in the chain to be at a unique address (00 to 15) by setting the DIP switch-

es (SW1) as follows:

Fig. 1 - 5 Examples of the 16 Possible Address Configuration Settings

To communicate with each board in the daisy-chain, prefix commands and queries with the

address. Addresses must be two digits (i.e. 00 to 15). These addresses are based on the

principle of binary notation. Add up your address value by moving the appropriate switch

to the “on” position.

**Pump must be power-cycled or reset for address change to be recognized.**
