Two-position switch
The two-position DIP switch, located on the back panel, connects the signal ground to chassis ground.
IMPORTANT: Do not connect signal ground to chassis ground on more than one location in order to
prevent ground loops and potentially high currents.
Eight-position switch
The Edgeport/2i also has two sets of eight position DIP switches, located on the back panel next to
their corresponding serial port.

Port Flag Configuration tab
The Port Flag Configuration tab allows you to configure performance options and special
functionality on a per-port basis.
nLow Latency (930-based Edgeport only):
Normally the UART will interrupt when the receiver has been idle for four character
times; for example 4ms at 9600). As long as data is being received, UART continues to
buffer them until its internal FIFO is full (~56 bytes). This flag causes the Edgeport to
poll the RX FIFO for received bytes. If any bytes are available they will be sent to the
driver without any delay.
nRemap Baud:
Setting the baud rate to 1200 baud will result in 230400 baud.
nIgnore Flush:
If an application sends IRP_MJ_FLUSH_BUFFERS it will be ignored. The following is an
excerpt from Microsoft documentation:
Drivers of devices with internal caches for data and drivers that maintain internal buffers
for data must handle this request.
Edgeport Industrial Installation Guide 19
Edgeport configuration utility Port Flag Configuration tab
Edgeport Industrial Installation Guide 20
nWhen Sent:
Receipt of a flush request indicates that the driver should flush the
device's cache or its internal buffer, or, possibly, should discard the data
in its internal buffer.
nOperation:
The driver transfers any data currently cached in the device or held in the
driver's internal buffer(s) before completing the flush request. The driver
of an input-only device that buffers data internally might simply discard
the currently buffered device data before completing the flush IRP,
depending on the nature of its device.
nFast Writes:
When an application sends a write to the driver, by default the Edgeport driver will wait
until all data has been transmitted out of the Edgeport device before completing the
write. When the Fast Writes flag is set, we complete the write even if data is still
buffered in the driver and the Edgeport device.
nFast Reads:
This flag is used when an application requires that a read complete immediately. In the
read immediate case, the Edgeport driver will send a request to the Edgeport device
asking for any buffered data to be sent up. This buffered data will be included when the
read completes. If this flag is set, the driver will not query the Edgeport device for
additional data.
nDisable Plug & Play:
Do not let the serial port enumerator detect devices plugged into the Edgeport.
nIgnore Tx Purge:
The IOCTL_SERIAL_PURGE request cancels the specified requests and deletes data
from the specified buffers. The purge request can be used to cancel all read requests
and write requests and to delete all data from the read buffer and the write buffer.
When the Ignore Tx Purge flag is set, the SERIAL_PURGE_TXCLEAR command will be
ignored. The function will not purge the write buffer.
nTimer Logic: (Windows 9x only)
If the application uses PortSetReadCallBack(), the notification routine will only be called
when the number of bytes in the receive buffer is greater then the RX trigger. The
Microsoft serial VxD also implements a timer that will trigger and call the notification
routine if some amount of data is available in the RX buffer but no new data has been
received for ~200ms (receiver is no longer active).
We do not enable this behavior by default because of the nature of Edgeport buffering.
But if you set the flag we will complete the read when we detect ~200 ms no activity.
The code specifies that if the receiver is active, the read will not be completed.
The problem is that the Edgeport buffers the RX bytes and we poll the driver. If we do
Edgeport configuration utility Port Flag Configuration tab
Edgeport Industrial Installation Guide 21
not receive any bytes in 200ms we may report an erroneous event even if there are
available bytes in the Edgeport device or driver.

nCOM Port Assignment - Configure how COM ports will be assigned.
lAssign COM ports based on converter serial number.
This is the default setting. In this mode, the driver uses the serial number of each converter
to uniquely identify it, and the COM port assignments for a given converter are based on its
serial number. No matter which physical USB port a converter is plugged into, it will
maintain its assigned COM port numbers.
lAssign COM ports based on physical USB port.
In this mode, the driver identifies a converter based on the physical USB port it is plugged
into. This effectively assigns COM port numbers to physical USB ports. No matter which
converter is plugged into a given USB port, it will use the COM port numbers assigned to
that USB port. This permits a converter to be to be replaced with a new unit, and, although
the new unit has a different serial number, it will receive the same COM port assignments
as the old unit because they were both plugged into the same USB port.
When using this mode, converters are identified not by their serial number, but by a 2-7
digit number that identifies which USB port it is plugged into.
When the COM ports are assigned, click OK. You must reboot the computer before the change takes
effect.

Understanding hubs
Edgeport Industrial Installation Guide 29
Understanding hubs
Hubs, which are critical components in the USB architecture, are wiring concentrators that enable the
attachment of multiple devices, thus converting a single attachment point into multiple attachment
points. USB architecture allows a cascaded multiple hub configuration with certain power limitations
(explained later in this section).
Each hub has an upstream port, connecting to the host, and multiple downstream ports, connecting to
downstream devices, possibly including other hubs. A hub can detect attachment and detachment of
downstream devices and enable and monitor the distribution of the power to downstream devices via
their integral hardware and the operating system.
Each USB device reports its power requirements to the operating system, which then enables and
disables the device as a function of its power requirements and the amount of available power. High
powered devices typically need to be connected to a self-powered hub, such as the Hubport, which
obtains power from its external power supply and provides up to 500 mA for each downstream port. A
low-powered device, such as a mouse, can be connected to a bus-powered hub, which obtains power
from its upstream host and provides up to 100 mA for each downstream port.
Due to the limited available power for bus-powered hubs, cascading two bus-powered hubs is an
illegal topology, and devices connected to the second hub will not function. USB specifications limit the
connection of a bus-powered hub to a self-powered hub or host only. Since Edgeport/421, Edgeport/42,
Edgeport/42+, and Edgeport/416 operate as self-powered hubs, they are not affected by this
limitation.
According to the USB Specification, the maximum limit of hubs cascaded in a series cannot exceed
five. In other words, you may have a maximum of five hubs between any device and the host. This does
NOT mean that the maximum number of hubs in a system is five. You can parallel-connect up to seven
hubs at any given level. You must tally both external and embedded hubs when counting downstream
hubs.
