Once configured the EX-40053 Serial Card, can be installed into a 16-Bit ISA-Slot.
When you are ready to Install the EX-40053, please proceed with the following installation
instructions. Because the design of computer cases varies greatly, only general
installation instructions are given. Please refer your computer’s reference manual
whenever in doubt.
• Turn off the power to your computer and any other connected peripherals.
• Remove the mounting screws located at the rear and/or sides panels of your
computer and gently slide the cover off.
• Locate an available ISA expansion Slot and remove its covers from the rear
panels of your computer.
• Align the EX-40053 with the expansion Slot, then gently but firmly, insert the
card. Make sure the card is seated snugly and oriented correctly.
• Locate an available panels bracket against the rear panels of the computer.
• Gently replace both your computer’s cover and the appropriate mounting
When install other Serial ports in your computer system, for example with the I/O address
3F8(COM1), the EX-40053 must be assigned to a different I/O address 2F8
(COM2). Duplicate the same I/O addresses will cause the computer system to malfunction.
Each 16-Bit interrupt can be assigned to any I/O addresses. Most Serial cards available
on the market can only be configured to interrupt 3 or 4. The EX-40053 Serial Card
allows to six additional interrupts (IRQ 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15).
The EX-40053 have two 16C550 Serial High-Speed chip. With this FIFO (First In / First
Out) Buffer the EX-40053 have a 16-Byte Transmitter- and 16-Byte Receiver register
what can offer you a Data-Transfer-Rate up to 460.8Kbaud. That a suggestive for a
faster Serial transmission and relieve the processor from the computer system. Any
User-Software recognize the FIFO Chip automatically and use this function.
Baudrate setting (Clock):
The EX-40053 support for the Port S1 and S2 the normal speed (CLKx1), double speed
(CLKx2) and four-time speed (CLXx4).
Use the four time speed up to 460800 Baud its usefully for RS-232 NetWare solution,
Serial data transmission from PC to PC, New Modem and ISDN solution. The Peripheraldevice
must support the select Baud rate. The setting you can select with the jumpers
„Clock setting“. The Baud rate from the EX-40053 are maximal with CLKx1: 115200,
with CLKx2: 230400 and with CLKx4: 460800 Baud. The application software must
support the setting Baud rate. Please note that if you have a high Baud rate the cable
length are limited.

Windows 9x/ME/2000/XP & Vista:
Start Windows 2000 / XP and click to >Start< >Setting< >Control Panel< >Add/Remove
Hardware< >Next<. Mark >Add/Troubleshoot a Device< and click >Next<. Mark >Add

The EX-40053 is now configured with COM3 and COM4 in the Device-Manager.
Click at Start<>Run< then enter “compmgmt.msc“ and click at >OK<. In the windows
that open select >Device Manager<. Under ”Ports (COM and LPT)“ you should find one
or more new ”PCI Ports“ as sample (COM3). If you see this or similar entries the card is
installed correctly.
If you like to change the port number for example COM 3 to COM5, open the >Device
Manager< click at >COM3<, >Settings< and then >Advance<. There you can change
between COM 3 to 256.
Windows NT 4.0:
Start Windows NT 4.0. The operating system will install automatically the EX-40053 with
COM3 and COM4. This you can check if you click to >Start< >Setting< >Control Panel<
>Ports<. You must see then the setting COM3 and COM4. You can check the EX-40053
also under NT-Diagnostic. Klick to. >Start< >Programs< >Administrative Tools
[Common]< >Windows NT-Diagnostics< after you click to >Resource< >IRQ<. You can
see then the setting „03E8-03EE Serial 0 ISA“ and „02E8-02EE Serial 0 ISA.
