    3.4 Connection of ECL to PC

    There are different ways to connect the ECL Comfort to the PC, depending on theECL Comfort model and whether the communication cable is to be connected at thefront or rear of the ECL Comfort. First the connection possibilities are explained foreach model and then the connections are illustrated on some pictures.

    ECL Comfort 300 connection: ECL Comfort 300 can communicate directly from the front, without installing anyoption card. To connect at the front, the right front cover must be dismounted with ascrewdriver. Under the cover the RS 232 stick is placed, where the communicationcable can be connected. Communication from the rear requires an RS 232 optioncard (ECA81). The connections at the front always have highest priority.

After installing RS 232 options card it is possible to connect the communica-tion cable in the front or in the rear of the ECL. The connection in the front alwayshas highest priority.
