If you mean how to select that display with brltty you simpley do:
brltty -b code -t en_us -d port
if its usb leave -d off.
code == the two letter code for your display.
A list of these are in the manual I believe or in /etc/brltty.conf
I think this is what you want though.
I am not sure if its usb. If its serial just add -d ttyS0 to this command.
If its usb to serial look it up.

Anyway here is the command if it is usb:
brltty -b bm -t en_us
Or whatever braille table you would like.
Does this work?
Note you must run this command as root otherwise it won't work!
