This appendix contains pinout information for the following ports:
This appendix also contains cable pinout information for the following:
This interface conforms to the electrical specifications of EIA RS-423A and has a minimum driven voltage swing of +5.6V to -5.6V in a 3K load to ground. The interface is wired as a data terminal equipment (DTE) driving TXD and receiving RXD. The interface is the same on all 16 serial ports of the concentrator. The following tables show the configuration of the interface.
|Normal Mode Pinout|
|Pin||Designator||Circuit Name||CCITT Number|
|1||DCD||Received Line Signal Detector||109|
|3||RTS||Request to Send||105/133|
|5||RD REF||DCE Common Return||102b/104B|
|6||CTS||Clear to Send||106|
|7||TD REF||Signal Ground||102|
Note: The input circuits are biased for fail-safe operation so that if no connection is attached, the circuits as shown in the following table.
|Pin||Designator||Circuit Name||Disconnect State|
|1||DCD||Received Line Signal Detector||False|
|6||CTS||Clear to Send||False|
TD REF provides a common ground reference for TXD+, DTR, and RTS. It is connected to the system ground. RD REF provides a common reference for RXD+, DCD, and CTS but is isolated with respect to the system ground.
The following information describes the necessary wiring for cables that connect between the 7318 and various serial hardware devices.
The DB-25 or DB-9 Pinout figure depicts an expanded null modem that translates the appropriate control signals for connecting a terminal to the 7318. It also shows how the terminal signals relate to pins on the DB-25 and DB-9 connectors.
Order the DB-25 terminal adapter as Feature Code 7904 and the DB-9 terminal adapter as Feature Code 7905.
Recent Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) terminals (and clones) use a connector that DEC calls a modified modular jack (MMJ) connector. To attach a terminal with this type of connector, you need a special adapter. The MMJ Connector figure depicts the MMJ circuits and pins.
Order the RJ45 to MMJ cable as Feature Code 7907.
The Modem Pinout figure maps the control signal between an EIA 232 modem and the 7318 to preserve modem control functions. The figure also depicts how the modem signals relate to pins on a DB-25 connector.
Order the DB-25 modem adapter as Feature Code 7903.
The Extended EIA 232D Modem Control Cable Pinout figure includes the DSR and RI signals. Order the Extended EIA 232D Modem Control Cable as Feature Code 7902.
The EIA 422 Device Pinout figure depicts the pinout for cabling an EIA 422 serial printer and the 7318. The figure also depicts how the EIA 422 signals relate to the printer's DB-25 connector. When using EIA 422, refer to the printer/terminal documentation for the correct pin settings. The EIA 422 Device Pinout figure is a sample diagram. This is a customer-supplied part.
The figure below is applicable to 7318 P10-style ports that are connected to EIA 422 printers and are configured as native LP devices. You will notice that this configuration required additional wiring to connect RTS to CTS and DTR to DCD. These jumpers are required by AIX for serial printers and can be made at either end of the cable.
The Macintosh DIN-8 Port figure depicts the pinout for cabling a 7318 to Macintosh computers with DIN-8 style communications ports.
Order the Macintosh DIN 8 cable as Feature Code 7906.
The 7318 has a standard DB-25F parallel interface.

The following two tables describe the 10BaseT pinouts.
The T port uses four of the eight available pins to connect to a 10BaseT hub, as shown in the following table.
|T Port Pinout|
|Connector Pin||Signal Name|
The T-X port also uses four of the eight possible pins but crosses the RD and TD pins to directly connect to a host instead of a 10BaseT hub, as shown in the following table.
|T-X Port Pinout|
|Connector Pin||Signal Name|
The following table describes the adapter unit interface (AUI) port pinout:
