Modem and Telnet Communication
The CMS can be controlled by a local PC that communicates
with the unit via cable, or controlled remotely via external
modem or telnet connection. Your terminal emulation or telnet
program is used to send commands to connect ports or display
Configuration Backup
Once you have configured the CMS to fit your application,
parameters and options can be saved to an ASCII text file on
your PC. This allows you to quickly restore user-selected
parameters if the unit configuration is accidentally altered or
deleted. Saved parameters can also be uploaded to other CMS
units. This allows rapid set-up when several units will be
configured with identical or similar parameters.
