11. Saving and Restoring
Once the RSM is properly conﬁgured, parameters can be downloaded and
saved as an ASCII text ﬁle. Later, if the conﬁguration is accidentally altered,
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 RSM units, allowing 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, TeraTerm, etc.), that allows
downloading of ASCII ﬁles.
Note: The Save and Restore features described in this section are
only available via the Text Interface.
11.1. Sending Parameters to a File
1. Start your terminal emulation program (e.g. HyperTerminal) and access
the Text Interface command mode using an account and port that permit
2. When the command prompt appears, type /U and press [Enter]. The
RSM will prompt you to conﬁgure your terminal emulation program to
receive an ASCII download.
a) Set your terminal emulation program to receive an ASCII download,
and the specify a name for a ﬁle that will receive the saved
parameters (e.g. RSM.PAR).
b) Disable the Line Wrap function for your terminal emulation
program. This will prevent command lines from being broken in two
3. When the terminal emulation program is ready to receive the ﬁle, return
to the RSM’s Save Parameter File menu, and press [Enter] to proceed.
RSM parameters will be saved on your hard drive in the ﬁle speciﬁed in
Step 2 above.
