Introduction
The HP 35900E is a dualchannel run buffered interface that connects
analytical instruments to HP ChemStation and ChemServer systems. It
converts the analog signal from analytical instruments to digital data and
transmits it to the host computer for further processing. The HP 35900E
is intended for use with both HP and nonHP manufactured laboratory
instruments.
Figure 11. HP 35900E.
The HP 35900E uses Modular Input/Output (MIO) for host communica
tions. MIO is a standard designed to allow for maximum flexibility in
peripheral to host communications. The HP 35900E has an MIO slot on
the rear panel for plugin MIO cards. The TCP/IP LAN MIO card con
nects the HP 35900E to the networked HP ChemServer systems. The
HPIB/RS232 MIO card connects the HP 35900E to HP ChemStation
systems using the HPIB functionality.

D
Data buffering
D
Independent analogtodigital (A/D) converters
D
Realtime control
D
Instrument control ports (RS232 ports)
D

Capabilities
Data Buffering
Data Buffering
The HP 35900E buffers (stores) digitized data from each run using PC
like SIMM RAM modules. Data from the instrument is digitally converted,
stored, and passed on to the host computer on request. The HP 35900E
comes standard with 1 MB RAM. Through memory accessory kits
(G1848A and G1849A) it can be upgraded to a maximum of 8 MB. Two
channel data can be buffered for the following lengths of time as deter
mined by the sampling rate and amount of RAM installed in the
HP 35900E.

Independent AnalogtoDigital Converters
The analogtodigital channels provide 24bit analogtodigital conversion
of up to two independent analog signals. The analog inputs can either be
totally asynchronous (have no relationship at all to each other) or syn
chronous (separate signals, but logically related to the same START refer
ence). To allow asynchronous operation, each channel has separate
Start/Stop switches, status indicators, and controllable digital I/O. The
analog input range is -18 mV to +1 V. The analog input signal is digi
tized by a continuously integrating A/D converter. This means that the
input signal is continuously applied to the converter's input, and because
of that, no portion of the signal is ever lost due to input multiplexing or
the sampling process.
13
Capabilities
Realtime Control
Realtime Control
The HP 35900E provides a set of realtime control functions for a host
computer system. These can be separated into two groups:
D
Remote Control Bus
D
Digital (TTL I/O) Ports
Remote Control Bus
The Remote Control Bus is a hardware interface that provides a set of
defined signals most frequently encountered in the laboratory environ
ment. These signals include START, STOP, READY and START
REQUEST. The HP 35900E has one Remote Bus per channel to allow
for asynchronous operation. These connectors are 9pin DType" female
connectors each having eight bidirectional (input/output) signals.
Digital (TTL I/O) Ports
Each channel has a dedicated TTL I/O connector with 16 signal lines. Of
the 16, eight are bidirectional configurable as inputs or outputs (for such
functions as valve control) and the remaining eight lines are inputonly
signals (for such functions as bottlenumbers).
14
Capabilities
Instrument Control Ports
Instrument Control Ports
There are two RS232 ports (one for each channel) that may be used to
interface with RS232 compatible lab instruments such as certain auto
samplers, balances, GC's, etc.
Line protocols and operating modes for RS232 communication are config
ured via commands from the host computer.
Host Computer Communication
The HP 35900E has an MIO slot for host communications. There are
presently two MIO cards that can be used with the HP 35900E. The
RS232/HPIB MIO card, option 011 or G1847A, connects the HP 35900E
to HP GC and LC DOSbased ChemStations. The TCP/IP LAN MIO card,
option 010 or G1846A, connects the HP 35900E to HP ChemServer
systems.
Front Panel
The front panel of the HP 35900E has START and STOP buttons and
three indicator lights for each channel. There are also four indicator lights
at the bottom of the panel to convey general information about the state
of the HP 35900E interface.
Start/Stop Pushbuttons
Each channel has START and STOP pushbuttons that may be used to
manually start and stop analytical runs. These pushbuttons can be indi
vidually enabled or disabled by the host computer software controlling the
HP 35900E.

Computer Connection
Computer Connection
Overview
The HP 35900E and the host computer are connected through a Modular
I/O (MIO) card. This type of removable card allows you to configure the
HP 35900E with the correct type of link to communicate with your host
computer. The HP 35900E can transfer and receive data from any MIO
compliant card regardless of the type of connection the card has with the
host computer.
The HP 35900E presently supports the following MIO cards for host com
munications:
D
HPIB/RS232
D
TCP/IP LAN (network)
The HPIB/RS232 MIO card requires configuration before use. If this
card is used with the HP 35900E, proceed to the next section for instruc
tions on configuration. After this card is configured, review the sections
Installing the Communication Card" and Connecting to Host
Computer."
Handling the MIO Card
Caution
31
The MIO card is staticsensitive and should be handled with static safe
procedures to avoid damage. When handling the board, use the following
precautions:
D
Use antistatic equipment during installation, such as a grounding
mat and wrist strap.
D
Hold the board by its edges.
D
Do not touch the board's electrical components, or edge connectors.
Computer Connection
Configuring an HPIB/RS232 MIO Card
Configuring an HPIB/RS232 MIO Card
The HPIB/RS232 MIO card allows the host computer to communicate
with the HP 35900E through either an RS232 or an HPIB connection.
By setting the configuration switches on the card you can configure the
type of connection desired. Typically, the HP 35900E is used in HPIB
mode when connected to HP LC and HP GC ChemStations running on
a PC.
If necessary, the board switch settings can be inspected or changed by
removing the board from the rear of the unit. First, turn the unit off and
remove the power cord. Next, loosen the thumb screws on the back of the
unit and then pull on the back plate of the MIO card to remove it from the
unit.
Configuration for HPIB Operations
The HPIB/RS232 MIO card contains an 8 position configuration switch.
When the position 1 switch is set to OFF, the MIO card uses the HPIB
communication mode. In this mode, the ON switch position for switches 2
through 8 are defined in the following table and shown in figure 31.

The factory default setting for this switch is shown in figure 31. Because
switch 1 is set to OFF, the board is in HPIB mode. Switch 3 indicates that
SRQ (Service Request) is enabled. Switches 5, 6 and 8 set to ON and
switches 4 and 7 set to OFF combine to form an HPIB instrument
address of 13 (0+8+4+0+1).
The most common reason for changing this switch setting is to avoid
HPIB address conflicts. Conflicts occur when two or more instruments
on the bus have identical HPIB addresses. To change the address when a
conflict exists, select a new address not used by any other instrument on
this HPIB bus. For example, to use 20 as the new address, set switches 4
and 6 ON and switches 5, 7, and 8 OFF (16+0+4+0+0=20).
Configuration for RS232 Operation
The HPIB/RS232 MIO card contains a single 8 position configuration
switch. When the position 1 switch is set to ON, the MIO card uses the
RS232 communication mode. In this mode, the ON switch positions for
switches 2 through 8 are defined in the following table.

Analog Input (Signal) Connection
The signal must be within the range of -18 millivolts to 1 volt. A simple
voltage divider resistor network may be used to attenuate larger signals to
this range. Each input has three pins to which the high (+) and low (-)
sides of the signal and the shield are connected.
Use an instrumentspecific cable whenever possible. Use a general purpose
cable in those cases where a custom cable is not available. Appendix B
lists pin assignments for all cables.
1. Turn off the power to the instrument supplying the analog output
signal.
2. For instrumentspecific cables Connect one end of the cable to
the instrument's analog output using the instrument manufacturer's
instructions.

Remote Control Connection
1. Turn off the power to both the HP 35900E and the instrument con
taining the remote start/stop contacts.
2. For instrumentspecific cables Connect one end of the cable to
the instrument's remote control connector using the instrument
manufacturer's instructions.
For general purpose cables Use the pin assignments shown on
page B6, and the instrument manufacturer's instructions to connect
the wires to the instrument's remote control contacts. The following
notes apply to a general purpose connection:
START and STOP lines are used for both input and output. As
input, a 10 msec or longer pulse of TTL low(<0.8V) is required.
As output, a 120 msec TTL low pulse is sent.
READY line is both input and output. TTL low indicates not ready.
POWER ON line is shorted to ground when power is off. It is TTL
high (>2V) when power is on.
3. Connect the cable to the appropriate (A or B) remote control connector
on the rear of the HP 35900E.
4. If needed, repeat for the other channel.

sampler signals START at time of injection).
* Input signals must be TTL low pulses (or contact closures to ground) with a duration of at least 10 msec; output
signals are TTL low pulses with a duration of approximately 120 msec.
Digital I/O Connection
Each channel has a 25 pin female connector with 16 signal lines. Of the
16, eight are bidirectional input/output signals (for such functions as valve
control) and the remaining eight lines are inputonly signals (for such
functions as reading bottlenumber inputs).
A Y" adapter cable (figure 43) is available to route the 16 digital I/O
signals to two 9pin connectors. This cable takes the wires from the 8 digi
tal I/O signals in the 25 pin connector and routes them to the 9 pin female
connector labeled A", and the 8 digital input only signals and routes them
to the 9 pin female connector labeled B".

FAULT (blinks while selftests are performed).
D
After approximately 30 seconds, the FAULT indicator should turn off.
Some other indicators may turn on, depending on the instrument con
figuration.
35900E Startup
Verify HP 35900E is Ready for Operation
Verify HP 35900E is Ready for Operation
At power up, the HP 35900E automatically executes internal selftests to
determine the amount of memory installed and to verify that the main
processor, system memory, the MIO communication interface, and other
internal circuits are operating properly. These tests take about 30 seconds
for a 1MByte system. The FAULT light will blink ON/OFF during this
time.
When the HP 35900E has completed the internal selftests, verify that:
D
The FAULT lamp is OFF
D
The POWER indicator is ON.
D
No other indicators are blinking.
In Case of Difficulty
If the unit does not power up correctly, turn power OFF and check that
the MIO communication interface is properly installed, then turn power
ON to see if the fault is cleared. If the fault condition persists, contact
HewlettPackard for service.
