There are two kinds of Bailine simulators.
The picture below shows the SIM-16 simulator
The pad cables
On the above picture you also see the colored pad
cables plugged into the simulator
The pad cables are connected to round rubber pads
in various colors.
Yellow pads are more easily damaged by wear and tear
and thus gray pads are often used instead of yellow ones. At the
above picture you see four pads put together as in the 'two-and-two'
test as explained in the computer manual.
The elastics have different colors and are used to
strap the pads to the client body.
The dongle is a small blue box that is to inserted
between the printer cable and the computer.
The arrows on the dongle show which part should be plugged into
The computer card and the multi-port cable
The computer or simulator card is also sometimes referred
to as the multi-port card
The card comes in a box like the above. It contains a computer card
like the one below
There are two kinds of simulator cards. One for older
computers and one for newer computer.
The card has to be installed into the computer. Some computers works
with both kinds of cards.
The box also contains a gray multi port cable. This
cable is sometimes referred to as the 'octopus'
The 'octopus' is attached to the simulator card after the card has
been installed into the computer
The connection cables
The simulators are connected to the computer with
'connection cables' like the one shown on the above picture The
connection cable is a short cable (approx 3 feet or 1 meter), you
need one for each simulator.
Besides the connection cable you also get a roll of
longer cable that you use to lengthen the connection cables to reach
from the computer to each cubicle.
Important: Before you cut any cables: TEST the connection
cables by moving the simulators next to the computer and hook them
up to see that everything is working.
There are several different kinds of 'connection cables'.
Cables to be used with the SIM-16 simulators are either marked with
RED tape or ink (as shown on the picture), or they are unmarked.
Cables marked with black tape or ink will not work
with the SIM-16 simulator
In order to use the built in serial port you may need
a 9-25 pins adapter. The adapter may look like the short cable on
the above picture. Do not confuse this cable with the 'connection
cable'. They may have the same plugs but are differently wired internally.
