11. Saving and Restoring
After the CMS-32 has been properly configured, parameters can
be downloaded and saved as an ASCII text file. Later, if the
configuration is accidentally altered, the file with the saved
parameters can be uploaded to automatically reconfigure the unit
without the need to manually assign each parameter.
Saved parameters can also be uploaded to other CMS-32 units.
This allows rapid set-up when several units will be configured
with the same parameters.
The “Save Parameters” procedure can be performed from any
terminal emulation program (e.g. HyperTerminal, etc.), that
allows downloading of ASCII files.
11.1. Sending Parameters to a File
1. Start HyperTerminal and access the CMS Command Mode.
If the password prompt is displayed, enter the Supervisor
2. When the CMS command prompt appears, type /U and
press [Enter]. The CMS will prompt you to configure your
terminal emulation program to receive an ASCII download.
a) Set your terminal emulation program to receive an
ASCII format download, and then specify a name for a
file that will receive the saved parameters
b) Disable the Line Wrap function for your terminal
emulation program. This will prevent command lines
from being broken in two during transmission.
3. When the terminal emulation program is ready to receive
the file, return to the CMS Save Parameter File menu, and
press [Enter] to proceed with the download. CMS-32
parameters will be saved on your hard drive in the file
specified in Step 2 above.
