  • ‘Configurator_archive_0.4.16.7.bndl’
  • '‘SN_UAC.LIB’


Please follow the steps below:


Part 1:

1. Open ControlStudio.
2. Connect to softMC7.
3. Please type in the terminal:

         ?sys.information    
Check the ‘Maximum number of axes’.

3. go to:

Tools -> Firmware Update -> choose MC_FW.ZIP

4. During the Firmware Update the MC will reboot twice.
5. After the process ends, please check the new version by typing in the terminal:

         ?sys.information    

Now you should see (among rest):

  • Version number: 0.4.16.7
  • Features: CODESYS:0x61131

6. Please provide:

  • Hash number
  • Serial number
  • Maximum number of axes (from before the upgrade – after the upgrade it should be zero until installation of the UAC).

7. Once you provide these details, you will receive UAC (User Authorization Code) and further instructions.


Part 2 (When UAC is provided):

1. Open ControlStudio.
2. Connect to softMC7.
3. Send SN_UAC.LIB to softMC by dragging it into File Manager.
4.

         Loadglobal SN_UAC.LIB 

5. Use the following function ‘?Set_SN_UAC_Files(byval SN_str as string, byval UAC_str as string)' :

         ?Set_SN_UAC_Files(“your serial number”, “your UAC”) 

5. Reboot the machine.
6. Check sys.information to see maximum number of axes.

         ?sys.information    


  • When upgrade is finished, you can use the ControlStudio Configurator to create the XML file (device description file).
Please use the Configurator training guide in the website (don’t forget to check the ‘USE CODESYS’ tab).
  • In CODESYS: Please install the ‘softMC_1_0_0_1.compiled-library’ into Tools -> Library Repository (one time installation).
  • In CODESYS: Please install the device description file (created by the Configurator) into Tools -> Device Repository (when using a new XML file).
