INTRODUCTION
Overview
The SLP-A45 (simply called “SLP” from here on) is an engineering tool for the AUR450C Dynamic Self Check
Burner Controller (simply called “AUR450C” from here on).
The SLP runs on Windows98/Me/2000/XP (simply called "Windows" from here on) on a personal computer.
Installation of the SLP on a personal computer allows the user to check the AUR450C's operating conditions or to
configure the AUR450C from the PC. After setup, operation of the AUR450C is more convenient.
In addition, since the data gathered by the AUR450C can be read on the PC, it can be stored there as a file or
displayed in graph format using commercially available spreadsheet software.

● How to operate the playback monitor
• Reading playback data
The playback monitor displays playback data for 8 seconds before the occurrence
of the latest lockout and for 2 seconds after the occurrence. Therefore, be sure to
wait 2 seconds after lockout before reading the data. If the data is read within 2
seconds, it might not be correctly displayed. If this happens, click [Read] again. In
this case, the playback display background color will be blue.
When the AUR450C and the loader are correctly connected, the operations
described below are also available.
• Saving playback data
The data sampled using the playback monitor can be saved into a file in the CSV
format. The sampled data saved in CSV format can be processed using spreadsheet
applications, such as Microsoft Excel.
Handling Precautions
• Before quitting the SLP, save the playback data. If not saved, the
data will disappear.
• Reading of saved playback data
Playback data saved in CSV format can be displayed on the playback monitor
screen. In this case, the screen background is orange.
• Use of the command line
Data can be read or written or the mode switched by directly entering
communications commands on the command line.
Handling Precautions
• Transmission of the wrong command may result in trouble on the
AUR450C. For this reason, take sufficient care when describing
command types, addresses, data and other information.
• For details on communications commands and data addresses, refer
to;
AUR450C "Communications" User's Manual CP-SP-1176E.
