D20MX HARDWARE USER'S MANUAL

Open the VT100 compatible terminal emulation software you are going to use.
2.
Verify (or set) terminal communications settings as follows:
Setting
Data Rate
Data Bits

1.
Check that all field wiring, grounding wires and fuses are in place and secure on your
D20 system.
2.
Turn the chassis-mounted Power Supply switch to ON.
Result: The unit is powered-up.
3.
On start-up, inspect the D20MX LED indicators on the front panel.
Result: The RDY LED is flashing.
The D20MX automatically boots up when the power is switched on. Internal processes
perform a series of routines. Self-diagnostic tests are performed followed by the spawning
of all the software applications that reside in the unit's memory.
The self-diagnostic tests generate PASS or FAIL messages that can be viewed in your
terminal emulator WESMAINT II+ screen. You can also see the results of the application
spawning process.
Pass/Fail tests are carried out on the:
User RAM
NVRAM
FLASH memory
Root process
The self-diagnostics also return measures for:
SDRAM size
Bus Speeds
CPU Core Speed
The NVRAM CRC test verifies that the configuration header is valid. If this fails, then the
D20MX starts with a minimal set of applications that allow the system to be restored.
