This chapter covers using the Craft interface to configure the CSU portion of the NCC 2020 Node Controller, and use of the front panel thumbwheel switches.
Using the Craft Interface
To access the Craft interface, connect a terminal or a computer running a terminal program to the port labeled CRAFT on the front panel of the NCC 2020 module.
Craft Port Terminal Setup
Set your terminal parameters to:
Data Rate : 19.2 kbit/s
Word Size : 8 bits Parity : None
Stop Bits : One
Flow Control: None The Verilink Craft interface does not assert any control leads.
NOTE: Although the Craft interface in the NCC 2020 will adjust (autobaud) to your terminal rate, Verilink suggests using 19.2 kbit/s to conform to the requirements of other Verilink products.
Verilink provides one of two types of "Craft cable". Both versions of the Craft cable have an RJ-11 modular connector at one end. The original cable has a female DB-25 connector at the otherend and a more recent version has a DB-9 female connector. Connect the RJ- 11 modular connector to the port labeled CRAFT on the front of the NCC 2020 module.
The original Craft cable pinout is as follows:
