2.2.5 Server Hardware Connections
In some applications, you may wish to position the Server PC some distance away from the tester, which will require a cable longer than the one supplied. The AT Series Server Port connector details are shown in Chapter 8 to enable you to make up a cable of the length you require.
To use more than one AT Series Tester with the same Server host PC, an intelligent COM Port expansion card will be required. The Server application supports the DIGIBOARD XE, eight channel device.
Before installing an expansion card, ensure that the PC is switched off and that you follow all of the manufacturers instructions. All supporting software must also be installed before attempting to configure the Server application.
PC COM PORT CONFIGURATION
Before proceeding any further, check within the MS Windows Control Panel to ensure that the desired COM Port(s) are recognized by Windows.
