Getting Started
Introduction
This manual is an electronic sewing machine input program relating to
Pattern, Bartack and KM-2070P that users can easily create and edit and
manage sewing data, generally covering about how to install and use the
program. Please recommend users that they should read through this
manual without fail prior to using.
14
Start and Finish of Program
After installing the program on your computer, connect the Key-Lock
with the printer port. (Execution of the program without connection
occurs an Error message.) The program is installed on your selection
directory. You can find that the program is registered in a Start MenuProgram directory on the left bottom of the monitor screen as follows:
(Refer to Installing the Program.)
[Ex:Start Menu Program-SunStar SSP3.0-SSP3.0]
① Click SSP-WE/3.0 registered as shown in the Figure or click the execution file in the
folder, which is actually installed, then you can execute the program.
② START Dialog opens as shown in
the left picture upon execution of
the SSDP program. Click“New
Data”to start the program.
③ To terminate the program, save
the file, select“Finish”in the file
menu, or click“Close”on the right
topupper of the program screen.
④ To plug out the Key-Lock during execution of the program occurs an Erro message in a few
seconds and the program is not executed. Therefore do not plug out the Key-Lock during
execution of the program. Please without fail to save sewing data prior to terminating the
program.
⑤ If you click and execute Start Menu-Program SunStar-SSP WE1.0, then click“ROM”in the
SSP Program menu, SSPWriter is not executed. In this case, execute SSPWriter directly,
or click“ROM”after execution of SSP in the folder which its program is installed.
15
How to Use
You must have full knowledge of the followings upon using the program.
① This program describes how to create and edit configuration data or sewing data using
keyboard direction keys. Before using, you must read though the screen mode. The
program is set up to automatically configure its screen size according to your monitor size. If
you change the default screen size and execute the program to input and edit data using
keyboard direction keys, it is not changed normally because of its mapping unconformity
with the Windows screen. That is to say, it is inputted apart 2~3mm from the input position.
But, it is correctly inputted upon using a mouse point.
② Configuration data like a circle cannot be asymmetrically adjusted. If you input different values in X-axis and Yaxis to extend data in the Zoom In & Zoom Out function, two axial values are systematically applied and
created in the same size. If, however, you asymmetrically zoom in / out sewing data including configuration
data, change its attribute into a Point Stitch.
③ If you receive and send data to SSP-Writer 1, dozens of seconds may be required.
④ Do not create sewing data of 10,000 stitches or more if possible. The sewing machine
can create up to 300,00 stitches. However, if it creates 10,000 stitches or more in a
screen, the program may get slowed, or stop. To reduce this phenomenon somewhat,
select“Stitch Off”
in the toolbar on the bottom of the
menu.
⑤ If you zooms in the screen over the maximum extension upon using Zoom In / Zoom Out
tools, a message box opens and it is not extended more. Continuous execution under this
situation may lose data on the screen. Therefore do not extend the screen forcibly, and
reduce it using Zoom Out.
16
And if you reduce the screen to some extent that
you cannot find data on it upon using Zoom Out, the
program may stop. Please recommend you that you
should restrain from reducing the screen excessively.
⑥ Select configuration data or sewing data to be applied prior to executing each function.
Upon selecting data, the configuration data indicates in blue and the sewing data indicates
in red. If you want to execute any data, it is good that you select it with a mouse and apply it
although the blue or the red indicates.

gray, and the currently creating configuration data gets changed in blue again. As
shown in the above [Data Creation Picture], the line in the blue part indicates the
currently selected configuration data with a Spline attribute.
The configuration data is always shaped with a blue circle.
33
Sewing Data
Sewing data can be divided into three types: Point Stitching, Sewing
Data created based on configuration data, and Mechanical Control
Command Data to be applied relating to the created sewing data.
Point Stitching
Stitching to be
created with
configuration data
Machine command
control stitching
First, Sewing Data, which you can input stitch by stitch in person, is Point Stitching as shown
in the above picture. Second, Sewing Data created based on configura-tion data creates a
Spline of configuration data as shown in the above picture and creates zigzag stitching of
sewing data with the Spline. Third, Mechanical Control Commands indicate commands such
as the second origin, temporary stop of machine, thread trimm-ing at any position of sewing
data, and clamp inversion/noninversion. These are indicated with text:“Stop”for temporary
stop of machine,“Clamp-L /Clamp-R”for clamp inversio-n/non-inversion, and“Trim”for
thread trimming. Although there is not in the above picture, the second origin is indicated with
“2-Origin”.
The sewing data joint is generally indicated with a black cross.
34
Jump Data
If two different sewing data exist, Jump data always exist between them
and is automatically created.
Upon initially creating sewing data as shown in the left
picture, Jump data is automatically created from the
origin. You can find that Jump data is automati-cally
created at the sewing data section too. And Jump data
is automatically deleted upon deleting sewing data.
And new Jump data is again created between the
deleted sewing data conforming to the front and back
sewing data. The Jump data cannot be edited and it
always indicates with a gray dotted line.
Order of Configuration and Sewing Data
The order of sewing data is created regardless of that of configuration data.
That is, the sewing data is always created accord-ing to
the constant order, and the configuration data is
4[1]
connected with the sewing data regardless of the order.
3[2]
For example, if four configuration data are created is the
left picture, it is assumed that the configuration data is
numbered with 1, 2, 3 and 4, and the sewing data with
[1], [2], [3] and [4]. If you create sewing data with
Configuration Data 4, Sewing Data [1] is created.
1[3]
2[4]
Therefore Sewing Data [1] includes Configuration Data
4. And, if you create Sewing Data again with
Configuration Data 3, it is automatically jumped with the
Sewing Data [1] created above and Sewing Data [2] is created. And Configuration Data 3 is
connected with Sewing Data [2]. If you create Sewing Data with all Configuration Data like this,
the Sewing Data is created according to the order shown in the above picture. And you can
select
Replay Tool to find the creation order.
35
Selection of Elements with the Mouse
You can select data with the mouse. Configuration data and sewing data are
independently respectively. Therefore, upon clicking each data, the data is
displayed on the screen. As shown in the left figure, configuration data is
displayed in blue and sewing data is displayed in red, and the
mouse Icon is in cross-shape. If it moves into the tool bar, it
changes into an arrow. Place the mouse button on the sub-tool
bar and click the button, an item in the sub-tool bar is concave
like
. Select the data joint to configuration data and sewing
data. In case of sewing data, each stitch data is selected. The selected joint of
configuration data is in circle-shape and in blue like configuration data. While
sewing data is displayed in red and in black to display stitch data. And
configuration data and sewing data are selected within the joint point range of -3
pixel~+3 pixel long and wide each. However, if two data exist in an
interval of 1mm upon selection, any point beside them may be selected.
Please, refer to it without fail.
36
Create Data
37
New Pattern Creation
A new edit range should be selected prior to creating configuration data
or sewing data. There are two ways.
First, the new edit range can be created by clicking“New Data”in Start Dialog Box created upon execution of the program
Second, it can be created by clicking“New
”in the menu bar.
Upon clicking all of two buttons, the mechanical
dialog box displays as shown in the left screen. It
has functions as follows:
Machine Type : Select machine type to work.
Machine Model : Set up machine model.
Sewing Size : After the machine model is selected,
edit range- sewing range is displayed.
Upon clicking“OK”, the edit range is changed into the work range as the following screen.
38
Creating Configuration and Sewing Data
You can input each type using functional buttons in the sub-tool bar.
The phasic creation process of configuration and sewing data is shown
in the followings:
■ Creating Configuration Data
1. To input with the mouse
·Input Spline
① Use the mouse’s left button to input any functional button you
want. The selected button becomes concaved
② Put the mouse button on any sewing range. Mouse cursor
displays in cross-shape + .
③ Upon clicking the mouse’s left button at any input place, data
· is inputted.
④ The configuration data of Spline is currently selected.
Therefore, upon inputting continuously, the input point
displays on the screen.
⑤ Click the mouse’s right button to finish inputting.
At that time, Spline displays on the screen, and the
button concaved by selection in the tool bar becomes reduced at original state.
⑥ Click“Esc”in the keyboard to cancel data under inputting. This is not applied to
any data created by clicking the mouse’s right button (Applicable to all input
functions.)
·Input Line
The order of ①, ②, and ③ are same. But, upon continuous inputting, ④ of Spline displays just point. For point to
point input, lines are automatically connected. ⑤ and ⑥
are same to those of Spline.
39
·Input Arc/Cricle
The order of ①, ②, and ③ are same. Arc and Circle of ④
are composed of three points. Therefore two points are
displayed like Spline. However upon adding one point,
the lines are automatically connected at each point and
create Arc/Circle.
·Input Polygon
How to input Polygon is same to that of Line.
However, Polygon is a closed loop. Therefore, upon
clicking the mouse’s right button to finish inputting, first
point and last point are automatically connected.
·Input Closed Spline
The basic creation is same to that of Spline. Upon the
right button finally, it is created absolutely identical
with Polygon.
The following screen shows all configuration data created previously.
40
’s Direction Key
2. Input with the Keyboard’
This is equal to how to input with the mouse. There are differences moving an input
cursor with the keyboard’s direction keys instead of the mouse, and inputting data
by clicking the keyboard’s Spacebar instead of the mouse’s left key. For example,
select any functional button of configuration data to input in the sub-tool bar, or
select the Point Stitching button with the mouse to input sewing data (equal to how
to input with the mouse). After selection, move the mouse into sewing range and
move the keyboard’s direction key, then the mouse cursor becomes moved. If the
cursor is exactly located to be inputted, click Spacebar to input data. The move unit
of the direction key is fixed to 1 pixel. If you want to adjust the move unit, select Key
Resolution of Input Device in the menu and adjust the unit again. For reference, if
1mm is set up to 10 pixels, move unit becomes 1mm. As mentioned above,
however, this is possible only when the window screen keeps initial setup values.
The above Window Resolution indicates Monitor Resolution. This is autom-atically
set up. Therefore you don’t need to change it. Click the mouse’s right button to
finish inputting.“End”key right over the keyboard’s direct-ion cursor also has the
same function as the mouse’s right button. (Available for detailed works like stitch
editing.)
’s Numeral Keys
3. Input with the Keyboard’
Second input method is to click any of functional buttons
in the
subtool bar, and select Keyboard Input of Input Device in the menu. Upon selection, the
keyboard input dialog window as shown in the left screen is displayed. Input coordinates
in X-axis and Y-axis and click Enter Key, you can find that data is being inputted on the
screen. Click Close button to finish inputting. Esc and BackSp keys are applicable to
during inputting. Esc Key provides the same function as Escape Key mentioned above,
and BackSp Key functions to delete inputted data by one point.
41
■ Creating Sewing Data
The following describes how to create sewing data.
How to input sewing data is still easier than that of configuration data mentioned above. That is why it is created with the previously crated configuration data. How to create data is generally divided into two methods: First,
Point Stitching Method inputted by users, and second how to input with the
previously created configuration data.
·User's jump input
User can set a jump code at his/her discretion and
use it for sewing work.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
① Select the jump stitch button on the upper left
sewing toolbar. When selected, it remains
pressed.
② Place the mouse button at the desired location
and press the mouse button to generate a jump
code. Whenever the left mouse button is
pressed, the jump structure data is drawn. To
cancel in the middle of drawing, press “Esc”.
③ After finishing Step 2, press the “right mouse
button” to generate a jump stitch. When the
button is pressed, the jump generation window
appears. When “okay” is pressed, jump stitch
data is generated. When “cancel” is pressed,
jump stitch data is not generated, but jump
structure data only remains.
To generate jump stitches based on the existing jump structure data,
select the jump structure data, enable the function, and press the
jump stitch button. Press the right mouse button on the screen, and
the jump stitch generation window appears.
Press“okay" to generate jump data.
42
·Undo function
In the middle of work, the function enables the return to the previous status. It can be
used by pressing the [UNDO] button on the top or simultaneously pressing “Ctrl+Z”
keys on the keyboard. The UNDO function can be used once.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
·Redo function
In the middle of work, the function enables return again returned execution by undo
function to the next status. It can be used by pressing the [REDO] button on the top
or simultaneously press“Ctrl + Y”keys on the keyboard. The Redo function can be
used 20 times.
Follow the Steps below to use the function.
① Generate a design within the sewing scope as
in the figure by using circle's zigzag stitching
method.
② Delete the location data from the stitch data.
Use the stitch point deletion function to delete.
③ To return to the original status after making
deletion, press the UNDO button at the top
menu or press “Ctrl+Z” keys at the same time to
undo the change.
43
④ To return to the previous status that is status before executing UNDO function,
press REDO button at the top menu or press “Ctrl+Y” keys at the same time to
redo the change
·Point Stitching
This is equal to how to input configuration data mentioned above. But, upon inputting Point
Stitch data initially, Jumps are automatically created based on the origin. That is to say,
upon creating sewing data with any attribute, Jumps is automatically connected based on
the origin.
① Select Point Stitching button as showing in the figure. (At this time, the button becomes concave.)
② Put Mouse Point on the edit range to click the
mouse’s left button and input data. (You can
continuously input data until finishing Point
Stitching.)
③ Click the mouse’s right button to finish inputting.
④ The inputted Point Stitch data is displayed on the screen.
The above process is identically applied to Input with the keyboard’
s
direction key and numeral key
44
There are two ways to create sewing data based on configuration:
Normal Stitching Dialog and Zigzag Stitching Dialog.
·Normal Stitching
① Configuration data should be previously created on
the edit range. (Please refer to“Creating Configuration Data”above.)
② Select any of created configuration data. If several
configuration data exists as shown in the left figure,
the selected configuration data displays in blue and
the rest display in gray.
③ Click“Normal Stitching”
in Sewing Tool Bar.
④ At this time, Regular Stitch Dialog is displayed.
Data can be inputted in two places:“Stitch Length
(pitch)”to set up the length of stitch to be created,
and“Sewing Speed”to adjust the sewing speed
at a user’s disposal. (Please refer to that Sewing
Speed is to be available.)
⑤ Upon“Ok”, you can find that sewing data with line
attributes has been created based on Normal line
configuration data as shown in the figure. ⑥
Repeat ②, ③, ④, and ⑤ above to create other
sewing data.
The following figure shows the actually created sewing data to help you understand
for parameters.
Stitch Length(pitch)
45
·ZigZag Stitching
① This creates stitches with the same method as
“Normal Stitching”, except clicking“Zigzag
Stitching”
instead of“Normal Stitching”
② Upon clicking“Zigzag Stitching”,“zigzag Stitch
Dialog”id displayed.
③ As shown in the figure, you can find a little more
complicated input boxes than Normal Stitch:
Width to determine the width of sewing data, and
Stitch Length (pitch) identical with Nominal Stitch.
The followings show buttons to set up start
direction upon creating zigzag stitches. And there
is a Speed Input box (not be currently provided).
The third is a speed-related input box;
however, this box is not applied yet. In the next
item, Zigzag types are presented.
As can be seen in the picture, there are 4
Zigzag types.
·Left to the center
·Right to the center
·Upper right to the center
·Lower left to the center
Each item contains the Zigzag staring direction
and creation location. You can select one from
the 4 types.
④ Click“OK”, you can find that zigzag sewing data is
created as follows:
The following zigzag sewing data is provided to help you understand each parameter.

■ Creating Mechanical Control Commands
All mechanical buttons are summarized at the above Tool Bar. Please refer to
’s function.
Tool Bar about each button’
Mechanical control commands influence the machine directly and indirectly.
They are simply created as follows:
·Sencond Origin Control Command
Second Origin Control Command is not to select sewing data, but to apply to any of
sewing range. The usage is similar to how to input Point Stitching Data. There are two
input ways: one is to input without sewing data, and another is to input with created
sewing data. In case of the former, upon inputting sewing data like Point Stitching, the
second origin is creat-ed, and the Jump is automatically created based on the actual
origin. In case of the latter, upon inputting the second origin at a certain place, the second
origin is created at the first sewing data and Jump created based on the actual origin. And
a new Jump to connect both sides is automatically created. The following shows how to
create the second origin for the latter.
① Sewing data should be created before creating
mechanical control commands. (Please refer to
“Creating Sewing Data”.)
② Click Second Origin
at Machine Tool Bar,
then the selected button gets concaved.
③ Place Mouse Point where to input Second Origin
at the edit range, and click the mouse’s left
button. Then a red circle dot is crated as shown
in the figure.
④ Click the mouse’right button when a red dot is
created, and Second Origin Dialog is displayed.
⑤ Click“OK”to create Second Origin, otherwise
click“Cancel”.
47
⑥ The following figure shows that Second Origin is
created.“2-Origin”in red is displayed at its creating place.
Please refer to the Mechanical Manual for the details of Second Origin.
·Thread Timming Command
① Sewing data should be created before creating a
thread trimming command. (Please refer to
“Creating Sewing Data”.)
② Click Trim
at Machine Tool Bar, then the selected button gets concaved.
③ Place Mouse Point where Sewing Data is created,
click the mouse’s left button. Then the bold part is
the enlarged part as shown in the figure.
And blue dots indicate selected joints.
④ Click the mouse’s right button to display Thread
Trim Command Dialog as shown in the figure.
Click“OK”to input a thread trimming command,
otherwise click“Cancel”.
⑤ The following shows a figure including the thread
trimming commands, which are displayed a“Trim”
in blue.
48
·Macine Stop Control Command/ Clamp Inversion Command
And you can create Machine Stop Control Command
(Stop) and Clamp Inversion/Non-inversion Command
(Clamp Inversion) as described in Thread Trimming
Control Com-mand. Machine Stop Control Command
is displayed as“Stop”in blue, and Clamp Inversion
/Non-Inversion Command can be selected with two of
right/left modes. It is displayed with“Clamp-L/ClampR”. The figure shows that all mechanical control
commands are created.
·Medchanical Control Command Deletion
This is a command to delete the created mechanical control commands.
You can delete mechanical control commands with as described to delete one stitch
data. Click machine control delete command and click sewing data where to delete,
then the selected data is changed in blue. And click the right button to display a
message box that asks you to delete it. Like this, whenever you exe-cute machine
control commands, the message box is displayed. And a message that asks you
how to do is also displayed on the lower status bar. The order is as follows:
① Click Delete Machine Control Command
at
Machine Tool Bar prior to deleting it, then the selected button gets concaved.
② Use the mouse’s left button to click a sewing data
joint where there is a machine control command to
be deleted. The figure shows that the Thread
Trimming Command is selected. The selected joint
gets blue. (The figure uses the same pattern as
foresaid.)
③ Click the mouse’s right button to display Machine
Control Delete Dialog. It has two types of radio
buttons:“Specified”and“All”.
“Specified”to delete the current machine control
command, and“All”to delete all machine control
commands in the current edit range.
49
·All Thread Trimming Command
This is to make you convenient. Thread is automatically trimmed at the end of the
connection of sewing data and jump, therefore you don’t need to input a thread
trimming command every end of sewing data. To apply this function, the current
work should be save. (It is recommended that you apply this function finally prior to
saving.) The order is as follows:
① Click All Thread Trimming Command
in Machine Tool Bar under the state that
machine command is created, then the selected button gets concaved.
② Place Mouse Point at the edit range and click its right button to display Insert
All Machine Control Dialog that asks you for thread trimming.
③ Click“OK”to delete the above dialog. There is no change of sewing data on the
screen.
④ Click Save Button
on the upper-left of the menu. Save Dialog is displayed a few
seconds after floppy disk reading sound occurs. And the end of sewing data is
automatically trimmed. The following shows that Thread Trimming is automatically
added.
⑤ Write directory name and file name, then click
“Save”. When pressing the“Cancel”button instead of the“Save”button, the created thread
trimming command does not disappear; it stays
effective.
50
·Input port Control Command
This function can program the devices connected to an output port upon punching.
In other words, during sewing, signals output from the selected output port can
activate the operation of a user device. Therefore, if you are not a trained and skilled
engineer, take extra caution in using the function.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
① Assume there is a square pattern design as below. This is an exercise aimed to
activate the linked pneumatic signals at Point A and Point B of the square.

·Output Port Control Command
This function can program the devices connected to a chosen input port upon
punching. In other words, the selected input port waits until a signal is input from an
external device and the normal operation begins after the signal input. Therefore, if
you are not a trained and skilled engineer, take extra caution in using the function.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
① Assume that there is a square pattern design as below. When the input port setting was
made at Point A of the square, the sewing machine stops the sewing at Point A, and
when an external signal is input to the chosen input port, the sewing machine resumes
operation again.
A
② Select the input port function button. When selected, it remains
pressed. Select the stitch point located at the desired place for
input as Point A. The selected stitch point turns red.
54
③ Press the right mouse button. When the button is
pressed, the output port setting dialogue window
appears at the same time. Select the output port
signal for setting.
Input port setting : User can set input port.
LOW
: Input signal is low.
HIGH
: Input signal is high.
Set HIGH for input port 4.3.
The input port table above is applicable when the C-SERIES I/O
board is used. In the existing A/B-SERIES, OP4.0~OP4.7 cannot be
used. In the C-SERIES, IP 4.2 cannot be used.
④ The figure below shows the design when the input port is set.
143-HI
55
·Delay Time Control Command
This function enables the setting of the system delay time at a chosen needle data
position upon punching. When the time delay code appears in the middle of sewing,
the sewing is suspended for the delay time whose setting was made previously, and
resumes after the set time. To set time delay, use the I/O port input code together to
set the optimized motion.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
① Assume that there is a square pattern design as below. When time delay is set at Point
A of the square, the sewing machine will stop operation at Point A and resume
operation after the set delay time passes.
② Select the time delay function button. When selected, the button
remains pressed. Select the stitch point located at the desired
position for input as Point A. The selected stitch point turns red.
56
③ Press the right mouse button. When the button is
pressed, the time delay setting dialogue window
appears at the same time.
Select the delay time for setting. The delay time
can be set at the unit of 4ms.
Select 100 to set 400ms of time delay.
Press the OK button to enter time delay.
The figure below shows the design when time delay was set.
D-400
57
·Head Up/Down Control Command (for C-Series only)
The function can program the head connected to a selected output port to move up
or down upon punching. In other words, when a signal is produced from the selected
output port in the middle of sewing, the head will move up or down. Therefore, if you
are not a trained and skilled engineer, take extra care in using the function.
Follow the steps below to use the function.
① Assume that there is a square pattern design as below. This is an exercise aimed to
operate the head-up and head-down at Point A and Point B of the square.
A
B
② Select the Head Up/Down function button. When selected, it
remains pressed. Select the stitch point located at the desired
position for move-up/move-down as Point A. The selected stitch
point turns red.
58
③ Press the right mouse button. When the button is
pressed, the output port setting dialogue window
appears at the same time. Select the output port
signal for setting.
Head Up/Down : User sets the head up/down.
Select Head-Up.
The head-up/down setting function is applicable to the C-series only.
This serves the same function as output port setting code OP5.4 as
explained previously.
The time delay can be set before and behind the position where Head Up/Down is set.
The purpose of giving time delay for Head-Up/Down is to give substantial time for the
head's move-up/move-down and thereby make the motion more accurate.
Time delay can be set at the unit of 4ms before,
behind, and before & behind the head-up/down.
But the time delay setting is not indicated on the
screen.
FIRST : Time delay is set at the position just
before the output port is set.
LAST : Time delay is set at the position just
behind the output port is set.
BOTH : Time delay is set at the position just
before and behind the output port is set.
In FIRST, set 200ms for time delay. It means
200ms of time delay occurs before the head
ascends.
59
④ Set Head-Down at Point B using the same
method. In LAST, set 200ms for time delay.
The figure below shows the conditions applied when the output port is set.

Reference
104
References for embroidery design change is as described below.
First, concept of embroidery and pattern is somewhat different and so you might
have problem if you change existing embroidery file into pattern file and sew as
it is. Such problem is because design is that for embroidery itself and so
sewing may not be done properly in the pattern due to thickness of thread or
conditions of needle and sewing cloth, stitch width of design, etc. Also, due to
property of embroidery code, jump function can input instead of general stitch in
the optional middle or one stitch can be added before the location that stitch is
started after jump in case of complex embroidery design conversion, in particular,
in case of Satin. Please note such points and then convert embroidery design
into pattern design and sew.

ROM DATA I/O
■ ROM DATA I/O
ROM DATA I/O has two items of ROM and Pattern/BarTack. ROM for the BarTack
sewing machine executes the external SSPWriter program connected with the SSPWE/2.5 program. To execute this function, SSP-Writer1 must be connected with the
computer print port, and the executive program must be installed in the computer.
How to install and use the SSPWriter program is in detail described in the following
configuration and installation of SSP Writer:
Pattern/BarTack provides the function to convert the pattern file into the binary file
(Bin file) so that it can be used in BarTack.
■Pattern/Bartack
① Upon selection of“Pattern → BarTack”in the upper tool bar, the following dialog
box is displayed
② Pattern → BarTack is selected as the default value. Do not change it.
With reference to, Pattern→ BarTack is provide in the upgrade
version only.
Display File Name : Box to input the name of pattern file which is converted
and saved as a BarTack file
: Button to create the Selection Dialog Box to select the pattern file to
be converted
143
③ Input“Test.bin”in the Output File Name input box. And click the Select Pattern File
button.
The BarTack file has Binary type to record ROM files with SSP-Writer(Rom
Writer). The machine for BarTack provides various designs through ROM,
therefore it must always convert them into Binary files. It is desirable to
write extension names in advance because their extension names have to
be“*.bin”upon writing.
④ The following Dialog Box is displayed. Open the directory where pattern files are
saved in the Dialog Box, and select the pattern files. Up to 67 pattern files can be
selected at a time. And select pattern files with the mouse’s left button under
pressing the“Ctrl”button in the keyboard to select multi pattern files as shown in
the Figure
⑤ Select“Open”, and press
in the Dialog Box. If the file is successfully converted, the following message is displayed.
⑥ The converted file is located where the file opened.
When the *.bin file (converted and generated as in the above) is written on ROM,
it can be used as an extension pattern. In the case of SSP-1201 (Bartack),
those basic patterns number 33 and above following numbers 1 through 32 can
be used as extension patterns. And in the case of SPS-1202 (Button Sewer),
those basic patterns number 34 and above following numbers 1 through 33 can
be used as extension patterns. When the *.bin file is generated, the brtk.bin file
is also generated, which stores information but has nothing to do with the actual
extension pattern data.

To execute the SSPWriter Program
If SSP-Writer1 is connected with interface cable and Power Adapter, the SSPWriter
program can be immediately executed in the program.
Select ROM Data I/O in the program menu to display ROM item. Select this item to
execute the SSPWriter program. Upon selection, the following figure is displayed.
If the following error message is displayed upon execution of program in spite
that SSP-Writer1 is normally connected, execute it again after termination of
program, then the message is not displayed.
“Programming Module not found
Please check connection of power Adapter”
If the program is not execute in spite of selecting ROM Data I/O to execute
ROM function; SSPWriter program, execute it in the Start menu or execute
“SSPWriter.exe”to the installed folder. (Note: If ROM DATA I/O is executed
after execution of SSP-WE/0.9x registered in the Start menu, the above
problem occurs. This is not a problem of the program. If you execute ROM
by executing SSP-WE/0.9x in the installed folder, the SSPWriter is normally
executed.)
Let introduce the process to actually record“*.bin”files in the ROM through the
SSPWriter.
① If the SSPWriter program is executed, first of all
make Device Setting suitable for ROM Type.
SSP-Writer1 is set up to conforming to 27C256
ROM upon delivery. The Information Dialog
shows that Device Type is set up 27C256.
However, if you set up the device toc 27C512 in
the SSPWriter program, adjust it as follows:
148
1. Click Device Type
among the function
buttons
2. Upon selection, the following screen is displayed. This is sep up to 27C256 Type.
3. Select 27C512 item to press“OK”, then the following screen is displayed. Set up DIP Switch
of SSP Writer1 as shown in the above figure,
and press“OK”. You can confirm that the
Device Type is converted into“27C512”in the
Information Dialog.
② You should check the blank status of ROM to record data in the ROM. If any day has
been recorded in the ROM, the following message is displayed.
Otherwise,“Blank Check OK!!”message is displayed. Let it do as follows:
1. Plug in ROM 27C512 exactly to the TexTool
socket of SSP-Writer1, go down the front lever
to fix. (Connect the ROM direction correctly.
2. Select“Blank Check”among the function buttons. The following message is displayed.
3. Upon pressing“OK”, the Box stops for a few seconds, the following error
message is displayed.
If any data has been recorded in the ROM, the following message is displayed.
149
③ If Blank Check is successfully executed, open BIN files to save them to the buffer in
preparation for recording data to the ROM.
1. Select“Open Bin File” in the menu.
2. The following“Open Dialog”is displayed.
3. Select“Bm10.bin”to the directory where the files is saved, and click“Open”.
Then you can confirm“Bm10.bin”to“File Name”in the Dialog.
Here the user may write on those files containing actual extension patterns
as was mentioned earlier in regard to Pattern/Bartack. It must be kept in
mind that no writing should be done on the brtk.bin file since it contains th
information on extension patterns only.
④ Check if the opened file has been saved to the buffer.
Click“Edit Buffer” among the function keys. If the data is normally recorded, the
following screen is displayed.
Note
150
To see data content in detail, press the keyboard’
s direction keys up
and down, then you can confirm that the data saved in the program
buffer is passing over page by page.
⑤ Now the data is normally saved in the buffer.
You have only to save record the program buffer
saving data to the ROM. Click“Write ROM”
among the function buttons. The screen stops for
dozens of seconds, and the following message is
displayed. (Although there is no reaction, it is not
wrong because the data is being recorded.)
⑥ Data is completely recorded in the ROM through
above Item ⑤. Finally, check if the data has been
normally recorded in the ROM.
That is, this reads the data saved to the ROM to
display it to the screen. Click“Read”in the menu.
At this time it reads data for a few seconds without
reaction, and a message is displayed for normal
reading. Otherwise an error message is
displayed. Then, you have only to display the data
saved to the buffer through“Edit Buffer”in above
Item ④. If all data includes values such as
“00 00 00...”or“FF FF FF...”, this means that
data is not normally saved to the ROM.
Note
If there is no display in spite that data is displayed in the screen through
“Edit Buffer”after reading, press the keyboard’
s up-and-down direction
keys.
151
Other Function
·Save Buffer
Click this function while the data recorded in the ROM
plugs in the TextTool socket, then the data recorded in
the ROM is saved to BIN files.
Save Dialog is displayed prior to saving. Write the file
name to be saved and press the Save button, then
data is saved where“SSPWriter.exe”file is located.
In case of successful saving, the“Save OK!!”
message is displayed.
·Dos Shell
To execute“command.com”file for DOS. Upon execution of this function, the following screen is displayed.
·LPT Port
To select Print Port to be used. Upon pressing this
function, the following Port Select Dialog is displayed.
·Verify
To compare and verify the buffer’s content with the
ROM’s content. In case of successful comparison and
verification, the following message is displayed.
152
·Auto
To execute Blank Check, Write ROM, and Verify in sequence, and automatically record data to the ROM. If you use“Auto”after saving data in the program buffer through
“Open BIN File”, all process can be executed at a time.
·Speed
To adjust the programming speed to record data in the
ROM. There are three speed items, which have not a
great difference actually. You have only to use them in
the default status. Upon selection of function buttons,
the following screen is displayed.
·Clear Window
To delete the data displayed on the window.
As shown in the Figure, select“Clear Window”in the
lower of“Function”.
·End
As shown in the Figure, click the Window End key to
terminate the program.
Note
