Relay User Manual Rev 3 30

Chapter 3 Operation

Before operating the Relay for the first time, ensure the installation instructions in Chapter 2, Installation and

Setup were followed.

This chapter describes the operation of the Relay. It does not describe the operation of the SMART6-L that is connected to the Relay. For information about the operation of the SMART6-L, refer to the SMART6-L User

Manual (OM-20000146) available from our website at www.novatel.com/support/info/documents/925 .

3.1

Communications with the Relay

Communication with the Relay typically consists of issuing commands or receiving logs through the communication ports from an external serial communications device. This could be either a terminal or computer connected directly to the COM1 or COM2 serial port, available on the COM and Power Port on the back of the Relay. The commands issued to COM1 or COM2 are passed to the SMART6-L where the commands are processed. The SMART6-L then performs the required action on either the receiver or the

Relay.

It is recommended that you become thoroughly familiar with the commands and logs detailed in the OEM6

Family Firmware Reference Manual (OM-20000129) to ensure maximum utilization of the receiver’s capabilities.

3.1.1

Serial Port Default Settings

The receiver communicates with the computer or terminal via the COM1 and COM2 ports on the Relay. For communication to occur, both the Relay and the operator interface have to be configured properly. The

Relay’s COM1 andCOM2 default port settings are as follows:

9600 bps, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no handshaking, echo off

Changing the default settings requires using the SERIALCONFIG command. See for the SMART6-L User

Manual (OM-20000146) details.

The data transfer rate chosen determines how fast information is transmitted. For example, outputting a log whose message byte count is 96. The default port settings allows 10 bits/byte (8 data bits + 1 stop bit + 1 framing bit). It therefore takes 960 bits per message. To get 10 messages per second, 9600 bps is required.

Also remember that even if the bps is set to 9600, the actual data transfer rate is lower and depends on the number of satellites being tracked, data filters in use and idle time. It is suggested a margin is set when choosing a data rate (115200 is recommended for most applications).

 Although the receiver can operate at data transfer rates as low as 300 bps, this is not desirable.

For example, if several data logs are active (that is, a significant amount of information needs to be transmitted every second) but the bit rate is set too low, data will overflow the serial port buffers, causing a warning in the receiver status and loss of data.

3.1.2

Communicating Using a Remote Terminal

One method of communicating with the Relay is through a remote terminal. The Relay is pre-wired to allow proper RS-232 interface with the data terminal. To communicate with the terminal, the Relay only requires the

RX, TX and GND lines to be used. Request to Send (RTS)/Clear to Send (CTS) hardware handshaking is not available. Ensure the terminal’s communications set up matches the receiver’s RS-232 protocol.

3.1.3

Communicating Using a Computer

A computer can be set up to emulate a remote terminal as well as provide the added flexibility of creating multiple command batch files and data logging storage files. Any standard communications software package, that emulates a terminal, can be used to establish bidirectional communications with the Relay. For example, HyperTerminal or NovAtel’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) program NovAtel Connect. All data is sent as raw 8-bit binary or ASCII characters.

NTRIP Configuration

 NTRIP is supported on Relays with CDMA or GSM/HSPA cellular radios.

For Relays with 400 MHz and 900 MHz UHF radios, external NTRIP client hardware and software is required and the corrections need to be routed in/out through a serial port.

Network Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTRIP) is an application protocol used to stream GNSS differential correction data over the Internet.

A SMART6-L using a Relay can be configured as an NTRIP client. For more information about NovAtel’s

NTRIP, refer to our website at www.novatel.com/products/firmware-options/ntrip/ .

Figure 15: NTRIP System

The NTRIP caster is an HTTP Internet service that acts as a communication medium between NTRIP servers and NTRIP clients. The NTRIP caster is provided by third party sources. For a full list of NTRIP casters, refer to the following link: www.rtcm-ntrip.org/home .

Relay User Manual Rev 3 36

Operation Chapter 3

The following procedure describes how to configure a NovAtel rover through a third party NTRIP caster. This configuration is recommended for optimal RTK performance.

1. Establish a connection to the receiver.

2. Use the following commands to enable the rover receiver as an NTRIP Client:

NTRIPCONFIG NCOM1 CLIENT <protocol> <endpoint> <mountpoint> <username>

<password> <bindInterface>

 If using a specific Network RTK system, certain National Marine Electronics Association

(NMEA) strings are required to be sent from the rover back to the RTK network. For example, if connected to the VRS mount point, the rover is required to send its position to the network in a standard NMEA GGA message. This is achieved by issuing the following command:

LOG NCOMx GPGGA ONTIME 5, until data is received by the caster. For more information about Network RTK options and properties, refer to the application note APN-041 Network RTK for OEMV Receivers found on our website at www.novatel.com/support/search/ .

Configuring the Relay

The Web UI can be used to perform several Relay configuration tasks for the Base Station.

 Rover configuration tasks cannot be performed using the Web UI. The command line

interface must be used. See Section 3.2.2, GSM/HSPA Cellular Radio Activation and

Configuration on page 33 to Section 3.2.6, Configure a Rover to Receive Corrections – 900

MHz UHF on page 35 for configuration procedures and Appendix B, Commands on page 72

for descriptions of available commands.

4.4.1

Configure the Base Station Position—Overview

Before a Base Station can send differential corrections, the position of the Base Station must be determined and fixed. The Auto-Survey function uses GNSS position data, reported by the SMART6-L, to determine the current position of the Base Station. Up to 32 Base Station locations can be saved and stored in the

SMART6-L NVM. Locations can be stored using the AUTO tab or the MANUAL tab. In addition, an Auto-

Survey can be performed at power up and that new position used for the Base Station location, or, if a position is known, it can be manually entered using the MANUAL tab. Once the 33rd position is ready to be saved, it will overwrite the oldest used position to maintain a total of 32. Positions can be saved manually or automatically using the different tab settings.

Upon each power up, any of the stored positions are checked to determine if the Base Station is within the defined range and/or position attributes. If it is, then that position is loaded and can be used as the fixed position. Each time the Relay is powered down and/or moved, a Base Station position must be established at the next power up and/or location.

A Base Station must never be moved while receiving corrections.

The AUTO tolerance is preset to 4 metres and cannot be changed; the MANUAL tolerance can be changed as needed.

4.4.1.1 Position Configuration—AUTO Tab (Auto-Survey)

An Auto-Survey is performed upon each power up. For AUTO tab, a fixed 4 m tolerance is set and cannot be changed. If the Base Station location is not located within a previously stored location, a new Auto-Survey begins.

 If the exact position of the Base Station is known (e.g., from a survey marker), the Base Station

position can be set using the MANUAL tab. See Position Configuration—MANUAL Tab on page 46.

The Position window does not require that the AUTO tab be selected before a shut down.

ESOFTLOADDATA, which should only be used in binary format.

File Types

Firmware data is stored in *.hex files as ASCII data in the form of S-Records, based on the Motorola S-

Record format.

5.2.2

Working With S-Records

Each S-Record has a header indicating the type of information contained in the record.

Records beginning with S0, S5 and S7 contain metadata about the firmware image, such as version information and which card types are supported by the firmware image.

Example S0 Record

S0~V~OEM060400RN0000

Example S5 Records

S50000

S503D9FE25

S5033158D5A

Relay User Manual Rev 3 58

Updating Relay Product Firmware Chapter 5

Example S7 Records

S70000

S70500000000FA

Records beginning with S3 contain the actual firmware image data. Aside from the header, each pair of characters forms the ASCII representation of a binary byte.

The format is as follows:

S3 LL AAAAAAAA DDDDDDDD...DDDDDDDD

CC

Check Sum.

Little Endian Data. These bytes are copied into the "data" field of the

ESOFTLOADDATA command

4 - Byte Address. Set this as the value of "offset" in the ESOFTLOADDATA command

Length. This is the hexadecimal number of character pairs to follow in the record. This value minus 4 bytes for the address and 1 byte for the check sum is copied into the "data length" field of the ESOFTLOADDATA command

Header

5.2.3

Sending Firmware Data

C++ source code is available to provide example code of processing S-Records and converting them to

NovAtel format commands, as well as providing help with the ESoftLoad process. Contact NovAtel Customer

Support and ask about the srec2esoftload utility.

The ESOFTLOADSREC and ESOFTLOADDATA commands can be used to send firmware data from the *.hex file to the Relay.

S0, S5 and S7 S-Records should be sent directly to the Relay using the ESOFTLOADSREC command, by enclosing the S-Record in quotation marks and issuing the command to the Relay, as follows:

ESOFTLOADSREC "<S-RECORD>"

The data from an S3 record can be parsed and packaged together with data from other S3 records into a binary ESOFTLOADDATA command. Packaging data parsed from multiple S3 records into a binary

ESOFTLOADDATA command can result in improved firmware update times as each S3 record contains only a small number of bytes of firmware data. A single ESOFTLOADDATA command can package up to 492 bytes of firmware data from multiple S3 records, whereas a single ESOFTLOADSREC command contains a maximum of 28 bytes of firmware data from a single S3 record.

Multiple S3 records can be packaged into a single ESOFTLOADDATA command as long as the data from one

S3 record follows immediately after the previous record. That is, the address from the current S3 record must equal the address from the previous S3 record plus the data length of the previous S3 record. If the data is not consecutive then the ESOFTLOADDATA command can be sent with the amount of data it has packaged up to that point. Subsequent data can be packaged in a new ESOFTLOADDATA command. Within the

ESOFTLOADDATA command, the "offset" field remains the address of the first S3 record and the "data" and

"data length" are updated to include the new data.

5.2.4

SoftLoad Update Method

This section describes the sequence of commands that are issued to the Relay when updating using a *.hex file.

 The response for each command must be processed before sending the next command so as to determine if the command was accepted or rejected, and to wait for the Relay to complete the operation. Responses to ESoftLoad commands are guaranteed to be output from the Relay within a specific time, which varies by command.

1. Open a connection to any port on the Relay (COM1 or COM2) with the input and output

INTERFACEMODE set to NOVATEL.

2. Request the ESOFTLOADSTATUS log using the following command:

LOG ESOFTLOADSTATUSA ONCHANGED

3. Initialize ESoftLoad with a ESOFTLOADRESET command.

4. Open the *.hex firmware file.

5. Read each line of the *.hex firmware file.

A. Send S0, S5 and S7 S-Records directly to the Relay using the ESOFTLOADSREC command. The

S-Record must be enclosed in quotation marks:

ESOFTLOADSREC "<S-RECORD>"

B. S3 S-Records must be parsed and packaged into a ESOFTLOADDATA command.

Relay User Manual Rev 3 60

Updating Relay Product Firmware Chapter 5

6. Send the ESOFTLOADCOMMIT command after all data from the *.hex file has been transferred to the Relay.

The ESOFTLOADSTATUS log reports the status of the loading process. Wait for a ESOFTLOADSTATUS log to indicate the status is COMPLETE. The Relay will continue to retry until COMPLETE.

7. Reset the Relay using any of the following methods:

A. Enter the RESET command

B. Enter the FRESET command

C. Power-cycle the Relay

Once the Relay resets, the new version of firmware is active.

The ESoftLoad process can be safely canceled at any time using the ESOFTLOADRESET command or by otherwise resetting the Relay. Once the COMPLETE status is reported by ESOFTLOADSTATUS, the firmware is running.

A.2 NovAtel Relay Interface Cable (01019382)

The NovAtel Relay interface cable (refer to Figure 21, NovAtel Relay Interface Cable (01019382)), provides a

means of supplying power to the Relay (and SMART6-L) and accessing the communication signals from the

Relay (and SMART6-L).

The exposed wires (labeled BATT+ for positive and BATT- for negative) can be connected to a vehicular power circuit (or equivalent) protected by a 5 A fast blow fuse (user supplied).

The cable has three DB-9 connectors to accommodate a computer serial (RS-232) communication port for configuring and monitoring the Relay and the SMART6-L. The serial ports COM1 and COM2 provide communication with the SMART6-L and COM3 provides communication with the Relay.

In addition, there are a number of bare wires where the outer insulation is cut away but the wires beneath

remain intact. See Table 7, NovAtel Relay Interface Cable Pin-Outs on page 68 for their pin-outs. For more

information on mating connectors and part numbers, see Table 8, Relay Mating Connectors on page 69.

This cable is RoHS compliant.

Relay Connector and Cable Requirements

Custom cables for installing the Relay can be created using the following guidelines:

• Minimum conductor size for all signal wiring is 0.8 mm/20 AWG

• Minimum conductor size for power wiring is 1.25 mm/16 AWG

• All wire insulation sizes in the Tyco 14-pin connector must conform to the manufacturer’s recommendations for insulation diameter range (or watertight seal integrity will be compromised)

• Batt+ connection must be protected by 5 A fast blow fuse

• Serial data signals (TxD, RxD, signal ground) must be run in shielded cable. Connect shield to Pin 5 at Relay end and to serial connector shell at the user end

• CAN signal conductors must be twisted (40 twists/m, 12 twists/ft)

• Use only the recommended mating connectors listed below. Use only gold plated pins

 Failure to observe the given cable construction guidelines and fusing requirements in this section may result in damage to the wiring or equipment and voiding the warranty.

NovAtel recommends biasing unused inputs to their default states.

The connector used in the Relay is an “AMPSEAL” dust and water sealed type produced by Tyco. The following part numbers pertain to the mating connector required to make connections to the Relay. These numbers are provided for information only and are not available from NovAtel as separate parts.

Uploads data for ESoftLoad

The ESOFTLOADDATA command is only valid in binary mode. This command is used to upload data to the

Relay for the ESoftLoad process.

After each ESOFTLOADDATA command, the user must wait for the OK or ERROR command response before proceeding. This response is guaranteed to be output within 15 seconds from the time the command was

received. If an error response is returned, consult the ESOFTLOADSTATUS log on page 95 for more detail.

This command can only be sent to the receiver once the ESOFTLOADSREC command is sent with the content of the S0 records from the start of a firmware *.hex file. In these cases, the ESOFTLOADSTATUS log reports

READY_FOR_SETUP or READY_FOR_DATA.

B.6 ESOFTLOADRESET

Restarts ESoftLoad process

The ESOFTLOADRESET command restarts the ESoftLoad process. The command does not affect the flash and does not reset the receiver.

The ESOFTLOADRESET command can be issued at any time. If it is issued while an ESoftLoad process is currently in progress then that process is terminated and a new one is started. After the ESOFTLOADRESET command is processed, the ESOFTLOADSTATUS log will report a status of READY_FOR_SETUP.

After issuing the ESOFTLOADRESET command, the user must wait for the OK or ERROR command response before proceeding. This response is guaranteed to be output from the receiver within 300 seconds from the time the command was received by the receiver. If an error response is returned, consult the

ESOFTLOADCOMMIT command. During a firmware upload, the receiver may remain in this state for a maximum of 300 seconds.

ESoftLoad data has been written to flash.

ESoftLoad process has completed. The next step is to send the

RESET command to reset the receiver.

ESoftLoad is verifying the downloaded image.

The downloaded firmware has been activated and will be executed if the receiver is reset. This status is effectively the identical to

Description

Indicates an internal error in the ESoftLoad process. This error is not expected to occur. Contact NovAtel Customer Support for assistance.

Error reseting ESoftLoad. Reset the receiver and restart the

ESoftLoad process.

A bad S Record was received. Ensure that S Records are enclosed in double quotes within the ESOFTLOADSREC command.

This data cannot be loaded onto this platform. Ensure that the correct

*.hex file for the platform is being used.

This module cannot be loaded with ESoftLoad. This file must be loaded using WinLoad or a similar loader.

No data type was entered before a ESOFTLOADDATA command was received. Set the data type using the ESOFTLOADSREC command with an "S0~T~" S Record.

No platform was entered before a ESOFTLOADDATA command was received. Set the platform using the ESOFTLOADSREC command with an "S0~P~" S Record.

A ESOFTLOADDATA command was received but the receiver was not ready for it.

The ESoftLoad data module was changed in the middle of loading.

Restart the ESoftLoad process using the ESOFTLOADRESET command.

ESoftLoad has run out of RAM to store the incoming data. Reset the receiver and restart the ESoftLoad process.

ESoftLoad data has overlapped. Ensure that the correct address and length is set in the ESOFTLOADDATA or ESOFTLOADSREC command.

CRC of the downloaded image has failed. Ensure that all content from the *.hex file has been successfully downloaded.

The downloaded image is too big for the intended data module.

Erasing of the flash failed. This could indicate a failure in the flash hardware.

Writing to the flash failed. This could indicate a failure in the flash hardware.

ESoftLoad time out has occurred
