Nec DS1000/DS2000

When connecting SMDR in DS2000, use cable P/N 80893 and adaptor P/N 85980 to connect the 8-pin DIN connector on the CPU to the 9-pin COM port on the customer-provided laptop or data collection device. In DS1000, use adaptor P/N 85980 and a Mod-8 patch cord to connect the system's RS-232-C jack to the 9-pin COM port on a customer-provided laptop or data collection device. By default, the data rate is 19200 baud (9600 baud in Fixed Slot), 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity (typically referred to as 19200 8N1)

Program #0301 - Operator Options - CPU Baud Rate
- 1 (2400)
- 2 (4800)
- 3 (9600)
- 4 (19200)
- 5 (38400)

By pressing Ctr+Break you can see the available baud rates.
- SMDR Port
- set it to 1 to enable SMDR
- Print SMDR Header (optional)
- set it to N in order to skip not needed headers

Program #10001 - Print SMDR - set it to Y in order to enable reports for calls on trunks

We mention that by default our application is disabling the CPU debug information when it opens the communication with the PBX unit in order to reduce same the storage space needed for the calls.

In our application please select the same baud rate as the pbx, new line separator CR, 8 data bits, parity none, 1 stop bit and hardware flow control.
