Screen Kit: Software Update and Configuration (IK)
1 Software Installation
This software update program is able to replace itself with an update version.
If a transmission fault is encountered during this self-replacement process
(power OFF, RS-232-C interruption, etc.), the OP 030 hardware is likely to be
in a non-operational state, which can be repaired only by the manufacturer.
Consequently, the self-replacement process of the software update program
should not be started unless the version supplied on disk is newer than the
version currently installed on the hardware.
The "INSTALL" procedure prompts for the version currently installed to
establish the necessity for a self-replacement.
The Development Kit is used to modify individual components of the OP 030
software (texts and application program).
A subsequent replacement of the software (via INSTALL) uses the modified
components and the rest of the procedure is analog to software replacement
from the set of system disks.
The complete software installation is performed in two steps:
The Setup procedure
– copies the required update programs onto the hard disk of your PC
– creates the update environment
– starts the installation process if required.
The installation procedure transfers configuration settings, texts, the
configured operator interface and possibly OP 030 system software (from the
OP 030 update directory on your PC/PG) to the OP 030 hardware.
