RS232 Port Signal Support and Handshaking
On the data logging port, DCD and DSR output signals are related to DTR input and CTS
is tied to RTS as shown.
The Data port supports full software XON/XOFF handshaking on data (AT commands
bypass this as standard for Hayes modems) or full hardware handshaking on RTS/CTS
with DCD carrier indication.
The Log port has no software handshaking support and hardware handshaking is loopback only since the command set requires a minimal buffer.
