15. Micro - CAPP ® FDX FAQ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________  2002 DCI Technologies Inc. Page 6 of 6 www.dcitech.com December 2002 6. Should I use a Full Duplex Repeater or a Micro - CAPP “Parrot” Store and Forward Repeater? As a general summary a Store and Forward Repeater should never be your first choice. Always try and implement the system with a full duplex repeater. If fre quencies are not available and you have to operate on a single frequency or cost is a big issue then store and forward can be considered. If you do decide to use a store and forward repeater then the system needs to be carefully designed taking into consi deration multipath signals and protocol tolerance of echoed messages. 7. What happens if some radio sites are in range of both the host and the “Parrot” repeater? This is no problem if you are using Integra Radios in the system. The Integra has a settin g where you can select the “Unit Type”. This will allow you to set the Integra radio to two different modes, “Master” and “Remote”. There is also a second parameter called “Data Delivery” and this can be set to “All” or “Selective”. What you need to do is set all radios in the system to “Remote” except for the radio that is connected to the Micro - CAPP “Parrot”, which needs to be set to “Master”. Then set data delivery to “selective” on all radios in the system that are in range of both the “Host” and “P arrot”. What this does is effectively disables communications between radios of “Like Types”, hence eliminating duplicate messages arriving at sites that are within radio range of both the “host” site and the “Parrot” repeater site. 8. Is there are speed difference between a full duplex repeater and a Store and Forward Repeater? Yes. As the name suggests, in a store and forward repeater all messages are stored in memory and then repeated again, hence all messages are transmitted twice. This then makes the maximum effective throughput of the system ½ of what it would be with a full duplex repeater system. However, if you have a system with gaps in polling that are more than twice the size of the average data message, you may experience no effective syst em speed reduction. 9. Can I have a local RTU located at the same site and use the same radio as the Micro - CAPP when using the Store and Forward Repeater Option? Yes. You can select an option with the set - up software to enable “Local Drop” when in “Parr ot” mode. This causes all repeated messages to be sent out the Host Port in addition to being sent back out to the radio port for re - transmission. Keep in mind that the Micro - CAPP will repeat all messages even if the message is destined for the local RTU . For some protocols you may need to set - up your local RTU to delay it’s reply to enable a message gap to occur. Under some conditions the RTU Reply may get stacked in the buffer immediately behind the repeated message. For more information you can con tact: DCI Technologies Inc.

14. Micro - CAPP ® FDX FAQ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________  2002 DCI Technologies Inc. Page 5 of 6 www.dcitech.com December 2002 1. What data formats can the Micro - CAPP handle? The Micro - CAPP is an asynchronous serial device that will transparently pass 8 or 9 data bits, 1 start bit and 1 stop bit at rate from 1200 Baud to 19,200 Baud. What this means is that any data format that has a combined total of the 10 or 11 bits will pass thru ok. For example 7 bits, even or odd parity and 1 stop has the same bit count hence it will pass ok. 2. Can I use a Micr o - CAPP to interface between two types of Radio Modems? Yes. The two ports on the Micro - CAPP buffer are set - up independently for baud rate and timing. Any data that is received on one port will be transferred and transmitted out the other port, but will have its speed changed to whatever the settings are on the respective port. Also one port (Radio Port) has full RTS/CTS control so you can use the Micro - CAPP as a buffer to add radio control what was otherwise just a data stream. This effectively enables a standard transparent radio like the Dataradio T96SR to have DOX (data operated switch) control. This feature works very well if you want to connect a T96SR and an Integra - TR or Integra - H back to back. 3. I have a T96SR system but I have one RTU site t hat needs to operate at a different baud rate than the rest of the network. Can the Micro - CAPP help with this? Yes. As noted in question two the two ports on the Micro - CAPP buffer are set - up independently for baud rate and timing. Any data that is rece ived on one port will be transferred and transmitted out the other port, but will have its speed changed to whatever the settings are on the respective port. This will allow you to have RTU’s connected at various data rates on a T96SR transparent radio sy stem. 4. What protocols with the Micro - CAPP Handle? The Micro - CAPP can operate in one of two modes, Buffer and Parrot, each has some considerations when it comes to protocols. The buffer mode is completely protocol transparent, but it can change the cha racter timing. By setting the Inter - Character delay time and Rate Padding parameters you can determine exactly how you want to pace data out of the buffer. Some protocols such as the GE Fanuc SNP that require specific time gaps within the messages may be affected. Modbus ASCII or RTU if fine The store and forward “Parrot” option in the Micro - CAPP is a very simple implementation. It is called a "Parrot" option because it will repeat everything it hears, hence it is protocol transparent. However because it repeats everything, both your host system and the RTU must be able to handle hearing their own transmissions reflected back to them. 5. What about using multiple Micro - CAPP “Parrot” repeaters? Suppose you have a radio network with 3 links cascaded be tween 4 points: A --- B --- C --- D and you want to use the Micro - CAPP in intermediary points B and C. In a single frequency system you can have two Micro - CAPPs back to back (sites B and C) with Store and Forward turned on but you must enable echo suppress ion or you will start generating a lot of looping traffic. However this will decrease your system throughput significantly as well as multi - path signals could be problematic. The best solution is to use a real repeater (two frequencies) at either site B or C. You can also use the Micro - CAPP in Buffer mode to interface between two different radio systems. For example if you have a store and forward Micro - CAPP located at point B you could still install a Micro - CAPP buffer at Point C connected to a Spread Spectrum link (such as the Integra - H) to Point D. The Micro - CAPP also works as a great interface between a back to back T96SR and Integra radio. Another option is to set up a submaster system at Point C that polls Point D over a different radio or freque ncy.
