Pocket Programmer
DESCRIPTION
The Pocket Programmer (model UPP) provides many of the features
of UPStart UPB configuration software in a portable hand held device.
The Pocket Programmer comes with a handy carrying case and AC
power cord that plugs into any standard receptacle allowing
communication to installed UPB devices. The Pocket Programmer is
intended for use by an installer who is familiar with UPStart and UPB
products. It virtually eliminates the need to have a PC with UPStart
software and a Computer Interface Module (CIM) at every jobsite. It
makes configuring UPB devices from room to room, quick and easy.
The UPP may be used instead of UPStart to provide initial
configuration steps such as adding devices to a UPB network or
disabling dimming allowing a newly installed switch to operate a
fluorescent fixture. It could also be used to program an entire UPB
installation. No data is stored in the UPP. The UPB network and
device programming is stored in each UPB device. A UPB network
that was configured with the UPP may be added to UPStart at any
time by using the Network Discovery feature in UPStart. The UPP
has diagnostic tools that include a noise and signal meter and an
explorer feature that reads and transmits UPB messages on the
powerline. In the Run CIM mode the Pocket Programmer may be used
as a Computer Interface Module.

INSTALLATION
The Pocket Programmer is designed for indoor use. Simply plug the
appropriate end of the provided AC cord into the top of the UPP, the
other end into any 120-volt outlet anywhere in the house. Once the
Pocket Programmer completes its start up procedure the top two
(of six) selections of the main menu are on the display and it is ready
for use.

FUNCTION: Toggles the backlight on the LCD display.
LED: The diagnostic LED operates
just as the LED on the Computer
Interface Module. In Run CIM mode
the Pocket Programmer exchanges
UPB messages between the powerline
and the connected computer or
controller. The indicator on the UPP
will glow AMBER when powered, flash
RED when UPB messages are seen on
the power line and flash GREEN when a UPB message is transmitted
from the Pocket Programmer.
DB9 Port: Connect a standard serial cable to an RS-232 port to use
the Pocket Programmer as a Computer Interface Module. The DB9
port may also be used to upgrade the firmware in the UPP.
MENU NAVIGATION
Pressing the <MENU> button backs out of a selection without making
changes. Pressing <ENTER> opens the menu selection and submenus. Some menus require the use of the <UP>/<DOWN> and
<RIGHT>/<LEFT> buttons to edit characters and move the cursor
position.

USING THE POCKET PROGRAMMER
The pocket programmer mirrors the functionality of UPStart
Configuration software. If the installer is familiar with UPStart then
most of the UPP menus and functions are intuitive and easy to use. If
there are any questions or difficulties in using the UPP referencing the
specific function in the UPStart software is highly recommended. The
pocket programmer identifies device by Device ID number, device
names are not used. It is highly recommended that the User knows
(has created a list or plan for) the device’s ID when programming. A
device’s ID can ‘Viewed’ by putting the device in setup mode then use
the pocket programmer to View the device from the Access Network
sub-menu.
UPDATING THE POCKET PROGRAMMER
The Pocket Programmer was designed with the future in mind. As new
UPB devices become available the UPP will need to have its program
updated to allow use with these new devices.
To update your UPP, please visit www.Simply-Automated.com/UPPUPDATE and follow the instructions. A personal computer with a
connection for a DB9 serial cable is required.

New Network is used to create a UPB network by starting with a Network ID and
Password. The Network ID can be from 1 – 250. It is recommended to use a
different Network ID for each installation. The password is 4 hexidecimal
characters, 0 – 9 and A – F. Once the UPB network is created devices and Links
may be added. Nothing is stored in the UPP. All data is stored in the devices as
they are added. UPB device must share the same UPB Network ID and password
to communicate peer to peer.
