Register

Name

Default

Range

Description

S0 Number of Rings to Auto-Answer. 0 0 - 255 Sets the number of the rings required before the the modem automatically answers a call. Setting this register to zero disables auto-answer mode.
S1 Ring Counter 0 0 - 255 S1 is incremented each time the modem detects a ring signal on the telephone line. S1 is cleared if no rings occur over an eight second interval.
S2 Escape Character 43 (+) 0 - 255, ASCII decimal S2 holds the decimal value of the ASCII character used as the escape character. The default value corresponds to an ASCII '+'. A value over 127 disables the escape process, i.e., no escape character will be recognized.
S3 Carriage Return Character 13 (Carriage Return) 0 - 127, ASCII decimal Sets the command line and result code terminator character. Pertains to asynchronous operation only.
S4 Line Feed Character 10 (Line Feed) 0 - 127, ASCII decimal Sets the character recognized as a line feed. Pertains to asynchronous operation only. The Line Feed control character is output after the Carriage Return control character if verbose result codes are used.
S5 Backspace Character 8 (Backspace) 0 - 127, ASCII decimal Sets the character recognized as a backspace. Pertains to asynchronous operation only. The modem will not recognize the Backspace character if it is set to a value that is greater than 32 ASCII. This character can be used to edit a command line. When the echo command is enabled, the modem echoes back the local DTE the Backspace character, an ASCII space character and a second Backspace character; this means a total of three characters are transmitted each time the modem processes the Backspace character.
S6 Wait Time for Dial Tone Before Blind Dialing, or After W Dial Modifier (W-Class Models) 2 2 - 255 seconds
  1. Sets the length of time, in seconds, that the modem will wait before starting to dial after going off-hook when blind dialing. This operation, however, may be affected by some ATX options according to country restrictions. The Wait for Dial Tone call progress feature (W dial modifier in the dial string) will override the value register S6.
  2. For W-class models, S6 sets the length of time, in seconds, that the modem will wait for dial tone when encountering a W dial modifier before returning NO DIAL TONE result code.

The modem always pauses for a minimum of 2 seconds, even if the value of S6 is less than 2 seconds.

S7 Wait Time For Carrier After Dial, For Silence, or For Dial Tone After W Dial Modifier (US Models) 50 1 - 255 seconds
  1. Sets the length of time, in seconds, that the modem will wait for carrier before hanging up. The timer is started when the modem finishes dialing (originate), or 2 seconds after going off-hook (answer). In originate mode, the timer is reset upon detection of answer tone if allowed by country restrictions.
  2. Sets the length of time, in seconds, that modem will wait for silence when encountering the @ dial modifier before continuing with the next dial string parameter.
  3. For US models, S7 sets the length of time, in seconds, that the modem will wait for dial tone when encountering a W dial modifier before continuing with the next dial string parameter.
S8 Pause Time For Dial Delay 2 0 - 255 seconds Sets the time, in seconds, that the modem must pause when the , dial modifier is encountered in the dial string.
S9 Carrier Detect Response Time 6
(0.6 second)
1 - 255 tenth of a second Sets the time, in tenth of a second, that the carrier must be present before the modem considers it valid and turn on RLSD. As this time is increased, there is less chance to detect a false carrier due to noise from the telephone line.
S10 Lost Carrier To Hang Up Delay 14
(1.4 seconds)
1 - 255 tenth of a second Sets the length of time, in tenth of a second, that the modem waits before hanging up after a loss of carrier. This allows for a temporary carrier loss without causing the local modem to disconnect. When register S10 is set to 255, the modem functions as if a carrier is always present.

The actual interval the modem waits before disconnecting is the value in register S10 minus the value in the register S9. Therefore, the S10 value must be greater than the S9 value or else the modem disconnects before if recognize the carrier.

S11 DTMF Tone Duration 95
(95 milliseconds)
50 - 255 milliseconds Set the duration of tones in DTMF dialing (US models only). This value has no effect on pulse dialing.
For W-class models, this parameter is a country parameter loaded by ConfigurACE.
S12 Escape Prompt Delay (EPD) 50
(1 second)
0 - 255 1/50 of a second Defines the maximum period, in fiftieths of a second, allowed between receipt of the last character of the three escape character sequence from the DTE and sending of the OK result code to DTE. If any characters are detected during this time, the OK will not be sent. Note that sending of the OK result code does not affect entry into command mode.

S37 Desired Line Connection Speed 0 - This register specifies the desired line connection speed.
Notes:
  1. When the Nn command is issued or the S37 register value is modified, the +MS command subparameters are updated to reflect the speed and modulation specified by the S37 value (see +MS command).
    For example:
    If
    N0 command is active, S37=10 updates the +MS command subparameters to reflect +MS=10,1,300,12000
    If N1 command is active, S37=10 updates the +MS command subparameters to reflect +MS=10,0,12000,12000
  2. S37 is not updated by the +MS command
  3. Use of the +MS command is recommended instead of the Nn and S37=x commands. Nn and S37=x commands are supported for compatibility with existing communication software
Bit 0 Desired line connection speed. This is interlinked with the Fn command (RC144). If an invalid number is entered, the number is accepted into the register, but S37 will act as if the default value has been entered.
0 Attempt automode connection. If N0 is active, connection is at the most recently sensed DTE speed (+MS command settings are updated to the appropriate values). If N1 is active, connection is attempted at the highest possible speed (+MS settings are updated to 11,1,300,28800 to reflect V.34, automode, 300 bps minimum speed, and 28800 bps maximum speed).

S38 Delay Before Forced Hang Up 20 0 - 255 seconds This register specifies the delay between the modem's receipt of the H command to disconnect (or ON-to-OFF transition of DTR if the modem is programmed to follow the signal), and the disconnect operation. Applicable to error-correction connection only. This register can be used to ensure that data in the modem buffer is sent before the modem disconnects.
  1. If S38 is set to a value between 0 and 254, the modem will wait that number of seconds for the remote modem to acknowledge all data in the modem buffer before disconnecting. If time expires before all data has been lost. If all data is transmitted prior to time-out, the response to the H0 command will be OK.
  2. If S38 is set to 255, the modem does not time-out and continues to attempt to deliver data in the buffer until the connection is lost or the data is delivered.

S48 V.42 Negotiation Action 7 0, 7, or 128. If an invalid number is entered, it is accepted into the S-Register, but S48 will act as if 128 has been entered. The V.42 negotiation process determines the capabilities of the remote modem. However, when the capabilities of the remote modem are known and negotiation is unnecessary, this process can be bypassed if so desired.
0 - Disable negotiation; bypass the detection and negotiation phases; and process with LAPM.
7 - Enable negotiation. (default)
