Battery Life Advisory
The MVI46, MVI56, MVI56E, MVI69, and MVI71 modules use a rechargeable Lithium Vanadium Pentoxide battery to
backup the real-time clock and CMOS. The battery should last for the life of the module. The module must be
powered for approximately twenty hours before the battery becomes fully charged. After it is fully charged, the battery
provides backup power for the CMOS setup and the real-time clock for approximately 21 days. When the battery is
fully discharged, the module will revert to the default BIOS and clock settings.
Note: The battery is not user replaceable.

Setting Jumpers
The Setup Jumper acts as "write protection" for the module’s flash memory. In
"write protected" mode, the Setup pins are not connected, and the module’s
firmware cannot be overwritten. Do not jumper the Setup pins together unless
you are directed to do so by ProSoft Technical Support.
The following illustration shows the MVI46-DFNT jumper configuration.
Note: If you are installing the module in a remote rack, you may prefer to leave the Setup pins
jumpered. That way, you can update the module’s firmware without requiring physical access to
the module.

User Manual
[Module]
This section provides the module with a unique name, identifies the method of
failure for the communications for the module if the processor is not in run, and
describes how to initialize the module upon startup.
2.2.1 Module Name
0 to 80 characters
This parameter assigns a name to the module that can be viewed using the
configuration/debug port. Use this parameter to identify the module and the
configuration file.
2.2.2 M1 Write Size
0 to 4000
This parameter limits the M1 data transferred from the processor to the module.
The module application automatically adjusts the size to an even 50-word
boundary as this is the minimum data transfer size for the application. For
example, a value of 199 would automatically be adjusted to 200. This feature
improves the transfer of data from the processor to the module.
2.2.3 Failure Flag Count
0 through 65535
This parameter specifies the number of successive transfer errors that must
occur before halting communication on the application port(s). If the parameter is
set to 0, the application port(s) will continue to operate under all conditions. If the
value is set larger than 0 (1 to 65535), communications will cease if the specified
number of failures occur.
2.2.4 Initialize Output Data
0 = No, 1 = Yes
This parameter is used to determine if the output data for the module should be
initialized with values from the processor. If the value is set to 0, the output data
will be initialized to 0. If the value is set to 1, the data will be initialized with data
from the processor. Use of this option requires associated ladder logic to pass
the data from the processor to the module.

2.3.1 Minimum Command Delay
0 to 65535 milliseconds
This parameter specifies the number of milliseconds to wait between the initial
issuances of a command. This parameter can be used to delay all commands
sent to servers to avoid "flooding" commands on the network. This parameter
does not affect retries of a command as they will be issued when failure is
recognized.
2.3.2 Response Timeout
0 to 65535 milliseconds
This is the time in milliseconds that a Client will wait before re-transmitting a
command if no response is received from the addressed server. The value to use
depends on the type of communication network used, and the expected
response time of the slowest device on the network.
2.3.3 Retry Count

[DFNT Client x Commands]
This section defines the EtherNet/IP commands to be issued from the module to
server devices on the network. These commands can be used for data collection
and/or control of devices on the TCP/IP network.
2.4.1 Command List
In order to interface the virtual database with DF1 slave devices, you must
construct a command list. The commands in the list specify the DF1 slave device
to be utilized, the function to be performed (read or write), the data area in the
device to interface with and the position in the virtual database to be associated
with the device data. There is a separate command list for each DF1 master
device emulated. The list is processed from top (command #0) to bottom. A poll
interval parameter is associated with each command to specify a minimum delay
time between the issuance of a command. If the user specifies a value of 10 for
the parameter, the command will be executed no more frequently than every 10
seconds for the serial implementation and 1 second for the network
implementation.
Write commands have a special feature, as they can be set to execute only if the
data in the write command changes. If the data in the command has not changed
since the command was last issued, the command will not be executed. If the
data in the command has changed since the command was last issued, the
command will be executed. Use of this feature can lighten the load on the DF1
network. In order to implement this feature; set the enable code for the command
to a value of 2.

EtherNet/IP Client/Server Communication Module
Configuring the MVI46-DFNT Module
User Manual
If the module is configured for the serial DF1 half-duplex protocol, the module
can act as a master device routing messages between attached slave devices.
This peer-to-peer communication is defined in the DF1 protocol specification.
The master polls each DF1 slave device until no more data is available from the
device. Response messages from the slaves that have a destination address that
do not match the module are routed with a request message header back out
onto the network. This facility offers communication between the slave devices
for control and data monitoring. This feature is not available if the module is
configured for DF1 full-duplex mode (point-to-point).
The module supports numerous commands. This permits the module to interface
with a wide variety of DF1 protocol devices. This includes PLC2, PLC5, SLC-500
series, MicroLogix and ControlLogix processors. Additionally, other devices
supplied by Rockwell Automation that use the DF1 protocol are supported.
The format of each command in the list depends on the function being executed.
To simplify command construction, the module uses its own set of function codes
to associate a command with a DF1 command/function type. The tables below
list the functions supported by the module:

This field specifies the database address in the module's internal database to
be associated with the command. If the command is a read function, the data
received in the response message is placed at the specified location. If the
command is write function, data used in the command is sourced from the
specified data area.
Poll Delay
0 to 1000
This parameter specifies the minimum interval to execute continuous
commands (Enable code of 1). The parameter is entered in 1/10th of a
second. Therefore, if a value of 100 is entered for a command, the command
executes no more frequently than every 10 seconds.
Count
Command dependent. This parameter specifies the number of registers or digital points to be
associated with the command. See Command Function Codes (page 33) for
information
Swap Code
0, 1, 2, 3
This parameter defines if the data received from the Server is to be ordered
differently than that received from the Server device. This parameter is helpful
when dealing with floating-point or other multi-register values, as there is no
standard method of storage of these data types in Server devices. This
parameter can be set to order the register data received in an order useful by
other applications. The following table defines the values and their associated
operations:
Swap Code
Description
0
None - No Change is made in the byte ordering (1234 =
1234)
1
Words - The words are swapped (1234=3412)
2
Words & Bytes - The words are swapped then the bytes in
each word are swapped (1234=4321)
3

The menus use a few special characters (?, -, +, @) that must be entered exactly
as shown. Some of these characters will require you to use the SHIFT, CTRL, or
ALT keys to enter them correctly. For example, on US English keyboards, enter
the ? command as SHIFT and /.
Also, take care to distinguish the different uses for uppercase letter "eye" (I),
lowercase letter "el" (L), and the number one (1). Likewise, uppercase letter "oh"
(O) and the number zero (0) are not interchangeable. Although these characters
look alike on the screen, they perform different actions on the module and may

Functional Overview
4.2.1 General Concepts
The following discussion explains several concepts that are important for
understanding module operation.
Backplane Data Transfer
The MVI46-DFNT module communicates directly over the SLC backplane. All
data for the module is contained in the module's M1 file. Data is moved between
the module and the SLC processor across the backplane using the module's M1
file. The SLC scan rate and the communication load on the module determine the
update frequency of the M1 file. The COP instruction can be used to move data
between user data files and the module's M1 file.
The following illustration shows the data transfer method used to move data
between the SLC processor, the MVI46-DFNT module, and the TCP/IP Network.
As shown in the diagram, all data transferred between the module and the
processor over the backplane is through the M1 file. Ladder logic must be written
in the SLC processor to interface the M1 file data in the module's internal
database. All data used by the module is stored in its internal database. The
following illustration shows the layout of the database:
Module’s Internal Database Structure
4000 registers for user data
1000 registers for command control
0
M1 File
3999
4000
4999
Data registers in the module above 4000 are used for command control. When
special values are written in this register set, the module performs specific
functions. The following topics define the special functions handled by the
module.

4.2.2 Module Control Blocks (4000 to 4999)
As discussed in the previous section, range 4000 to 4999 in the M1 file controls
the module in order to perform specific tasks. These tasks are described in the
following topics. Word 4000 contains the block ID that identifies the block to the
MVI46-DFNT module. The block structure, which is different for each block, is
shown in the following topics.
Status Data Request
When the user wants to read the module’s general error and status data to the
SLC, it must make a special request using the command control area. The
following tables lists the two values recognized by the module in register 4000 to
request the data:
Control Code
250
251
Content
General
DFNT Servers
Description
Status data for the module, client and pass-through server
Status data for each of the 5 DFNT servers
Refer to MVI46-DFNT Status Data Definition (page 86) for a complete listing of
the data returned for the two status blocks.
Initialize Output Data
When the module performs a restart operation, it requests output data from the
processor to initialize the module’s output data. This mode is selected using the
Initialize Output Data parameter in the configuration file. This facility can be
used to bring the module to a known state after the restart operation. The
structure of the block used to request the data is shown in the following table.
Offset
Description / Value
Length
4000
1000

The command control value of 1000 is placed in register 4000 of the M1 file to
indicate that the module is requesting initialization of the M1 data file. Ladder
logic in the processor must recognize this command and place the correct
information in the M1file. After the data transfer is complete, the ladder logic
should place a value of 1001 in register 4000 of the module’s M1 file. The format
of the returned write block is shown in the following table.

4.2.3 Data Flow between MVI46-DFNT Module and SLC Processor
The following discussion outlines the flow of data between the two pieces of
hardware (SLC processor and MVI46-DFNT module) and other nodes on the
TCP/IP network under the module’s different operating modes. The module
contains both servers and a client. The servers accept TCP/IP connections on
service port AF12. The client establishes connections to service port AF12
(hexadecimal) on other EtherNet/IP servers.
The following topics discuss the operation of the server and client drivers.
Server Driver
The Server Driver allows the MVI46-DFNT module to respond to data read and
write commands issued by clients on the EtherNet/IP network using explicit
messaging. The following flow chart and associated table describe the flow of
data into and out of the module.
Step
Description
1
The server driver receives the configuration information from the configuration file on the
Compact Flash Disk, and the module initializes the servers.
2
A Host device, such as a SLC processor, RSLinx or an HMI application issues a read or
write command to the module. The server driver qualifies the message before accepting
it into the module.
3
After the module accepts the command, the data is immediately transferred to or from
the internal database in the module. If the command is a read command, the data is
read out of the database and a response message is built. If the command is a write
command, the data is written directly into the database and the M1 file and a response
message is built.
4
After the data processing has been completed in Step 3, the response is issued to the
originating master node.
5
Status data for the servers is passed to the processor under ladder logic control using
the command control data area in the M1 file.

MVI46-DFNT ♦ SLC Platform
EtherNet/IP Client/Server Communication Module
The DFNT module supports server functionality using the reserved ControlNet
service port 0xAF12. Services supported in the module permit client applications
(that is, RSView, ControlLogix processors and RSLinx) to read from and write to
the module’s database. This document discusses the requirements for attaching
to the module using several client applications.
The following illustration shows the relationship of the DFNT module’s
functionality to devices on an Ethernet network:
Server functionality places all data transfer operations outside the module. There
is no configuration required in the module other than setting up the network and
database parameters in the configuration file. Ladder logic in attached
processors use MSG instructions to perform read and write operations on the
module’s internal database.
When RSLinx links a user application to the module, the module’s server
functionality must be used. RSLinx exists on an Ethernet network only as a client
application. It cannot act as a server. User applications can use the DDE/OPC
capabilities built into RSLinx to interface with the data in the DFNT module.
RSView can link directly to the module using drivers supplied by RSLinx.
The internal database of the DFNT module is used as the source (read requests)
and destination (write requests) for requests from remote clients. Access to the
database depends on the MSG command type executed to interface with the
database. The following table defines the relationship of the module’s internal
database to the addresses required in the MSG instructions:

Client Driver
In the client driver, the MVI46-DFNT module is responsible for issuing read or
write commands to servers on the EtherNet/IP network using explicit, connected
messaging. These commands are user configured in the module via the Client
Command List received from the module's configuration file (DFNT.CFG).
Command status is returned to the processor for each individual command in the
command list status block in the command control data area. Ladder logic is
responsible for acquiring this data from the module. The following flow chart and
associated table show the flow of data into and out of the module.
Step

Description
The client driver obtains configuration data from the DFNT.CFG file when the module
restarts. The configuration data obtained includes the timeout parameters and the
Command List. These values are used by the driver to determine the type of commands
to be issued to the other nodes on the EtherNet/IP (see Module Configuration).
After configuration, the client driver begins transmitting read and/or write commands to
the other nodes on the network. If writing data to another node, the data for the write
command is obtained from the module's internal database to build the command.
Presuming successful processing by the node specified in the command, a response
message is received into the client driver for processing.
Data received from the node on the network is passed into the module's internal
database, assuming a read command.
Status data is returned to the SLC processor for the client and a Command List error
table can be established in the module's internal database. This data is requested using
the command control data area and is a responsibility of the ladder logic.
The Module Setup section provides a complete description of the parameters
required to define the client.

The MVI46-DFNT module has the following functional communication
connections installed:
One Ethernet port (RJ45 connector)
One RS-232 Configuration/Debug port (RJ45 connector)
4.3.1 Ethernet Connection
The MVI46-DFNT module has an RJ45 port located on the front of the module,
labeled Ethernet, for use with the TCP/IP network. The module is connected to
the Ethernet network using an Ethernet cable between the module’s Ethernet
port and an Ethernet switch or hub.
Note: Depending on hardware configuration, you may see more than one RJ45 port on the
module. The Ethernet port is labeled Ethernet.
Warning: The MVI46-DFNT module is NOT compatible with Power Over Ethernet (IEEE802.3af /
IEEE802.3at) networks. Do NOT connect the module to Ethernet devices, hubs, switches or
networks that supply AC or DC power over the Ethernet cable. Failure to observe this precaution
may result in damage to hardware, or injury to personnel.
Important: The module requires a static (fixed) IP address that is not shared with any other device
on the Ethernet network. Obtain a list of suitable IP addresses from your network administrator
BEFORE configuring the Ethernet port on this module.

Error Codes
The module error codes are listed in this section. Error codes returned from the
command list process are stored in the command list error memory region. A
word is allocated for each command in the memory area. The error codes are
formatted in the word as follows: The least-significant byte of the word contains
the extended status code and the most-significant byte contains the status code.
Use the error codes returned for each command in the list to determine the
success or failure of the command. If the command fails, use the error code to
determine the cause of failure.
Note: The Module Specific error codes (not DF1 compliant) are returned from within the module
and never returned from an attached DF1 slave device. These are error codes that are part of the
DF1 protocol or are extended codes unique to this module. The standard DF1 error codes can be
found in the DF1 Protocol and Command Set Reference Manual (Publication 1770-6.5.16) from
Rockwell Automation. The most common errors for the DF1 protocol are shown in the following
tables:

Name of the module for use on reports. Use this
parameter to identify your module in your system.
M1 Write Size
0 to 4000
This parameter limits the M1 data transferred from the
processor to the module. The module application
automatically adjusts the size to an even 50-word

the application. For example, a value of 199 would
automatically be adjusted to 200. This feature improves
the transfer of data from the processor to the module.
Failure Flag
Count:
0 to 65535
This parameter specifies the number of successive
transfer errors that must occur before the
communication ports are shut down. If the parameter is
set to 0, the communication ports continue to operate
under all conditions. If the value is set larger than 0 (1
to 65535), communications will cease if the specified
number of failures occur.
Initialize Output
Data:
0 or 1
This parameter determines if the output data for the
module should be initialized with values from the
processor. If the value is set to 0, the output data will
be initialized to 0. If the value is set to 1, the data will
be initialized with data from the processor. Use of this
option requires associated ladder logic to pass the data
from the processor to the module.
DFNT Server File
Size
100 or
1000
Sets the maximum file size (100 or 1000) for the
servers.
Float Write Start
0 to 3950
(multiple of
50)
Starting address within the database of the MVI46DFNT module where floating point data will be stored.
The module will then automatically swap the byte order
of this data, so that it is displayed correctly within the
SLC data tables. This is necessary as the MVI46-DFNT
module and the SLC processor use a different floating
point data formats.
Float Write Count
0 to 4000

In the following discussion, the Column values are described for the serial DFCM
Command list (See Node Address parameter #6). In the DFNT module, the Node
address has been replaced with two parameters; the IP Address and the Slot
Number, causing the Function Code and Function Parameters to occupy
positions 8 to 12 instead of 7 to 11. Aside from this difference, all other

Virtual Database Address
This parameter defines the virtual database register to be
associated with the command.
Poll Interval

Node Address
Node address of unit to be reached on the data highway.
Function Code
This parameter defines the module function code to be
associated with the command. Each function code requires a set
of parameters to construct the DF1 message.
Parameters
Up to four parameter fields can follow the function code field to
define the element or data register to be considered by the
function.
Note that the Node Address field in the serial implementation has been expanded
to two fields: IP Address and Slot Number in the DFNT Ethernet implementation.
This is required for network support. The IP Address specifies the IP address of
the device to reach on the network. The Slot Number has specific meaning
determined by the processor. For ControlLogix processors, the Slot Number is
the location in the ControlLogix rack of the processor. For a four-slot rack, this
parameter would have a valid range of 0 to 3. For the PLC5 and SLC family of
processors, the Slot Number parameter is always set to -1. These processors do
not have a slot number in the path field as the Ethernet interface is resident on
the processor.
The following tables define the parameters required for each function.

DDE Connection
This section discusses setting up a DDE connection to the module in order to
transfer data between the module and a DDE compliant application.
Each DDE connection requires three basic elements: Application, Topic and
Item. These three properties of a DDE link define the program providing the
connection, the topic to connect to and the item in the topic that you wish to
interface. All three are required for a connection. For this discussion, the
Application will always be RSLinx. The Topic is defined in the RSLinx OEM
release software and the Item is defined in the DDE client application where the
data is required. The link between the DDE server and the DDE client can be
established after these parameters are defined. The following illustration shows
the relationship of these elements and the facilities used in the DDE link.
1
2
3
The DDE Client application specifies the DDE link by specifying the
APPLICATION, TOPIC, and ITEM elements. For example, in Excel, enter
=RSLINX|CIP_Sample! 'ReadData[0]' into a cell.
RSLinx is the DDE Server: APPLICATION = RSLINX.
And
RSLinx defines the TOPIC.
This is the communication link to the DFNT module. In this example, a DDE
TOPIC is called "CIP_Sample" for the communication link to the DFNT
module.
The DFNT module is used to serve data to RSLinx using the EtherNet/IP
driver with explicit messaging. Database is accessed using tag names (e.g.
ReadData[0]).

The COMMUNICATION DRIVER should be set to the ETHIP driver. Make sure the
LOCAL option is selected in the LOCAL OR REMOTE ADDRESSING section of the
dialog box. You should not have to alter any data on this tab, as RSLinx knows
the communication path. Now click the APPLY button to implement the options
and to establish the topic.
You are now ready to use the DDE link in a DDE client application. The following
example shows how to define a DDE link in an Excel Spreadsheet. It is also
possible to define a DDE link in a Visual Basic program. Any other Windows DDE
client application could be used including SoftLogix and RSSql.
Defining a DDE link in Excel
This is the simplest DDE link to define and should be used to make sure the
Topic is defined correctly before using more advanced applications. Before
attempting to make the link, verify that RSLinx is running and that the DFNT
module is seen. To make a DDE link in Excel, enter the application, topic and
item elements as a formula into a cell. The format for the formula is as follows:
=APPLICATION|TOPIC!ITEM
The "|" character (piping symbol) separates the application and topic fields and
the "!" (exclamation symbol) separates the topic and item fields. For our example
topic of ProLinx1, the entry into the cell is:
=RSLinx|CIP_Sample!'RealData[500]'
This causes the current value at the database double-word offset 500 (starting at
word address 1000) in the DFNT module to be displayed in the cell as a floatingpoint value. This value updates at the frequency defined in the Topic
configuration in RSLinx. You can now place any database point in the DFNT
module using the same procedure in your work sheet. Note that the tag array
name is used for the item property and must be enclosed within the quote marks.
This is because the tag array name item reference looks like an Excel work sheet
reference. If you do not include the quotes, a formula error occurs. You can
select any of the defined tag array names defined in the module on your
spreadsheet.
When the items are used for the topic, RSLinx displays the following after
selecting the Active Topic/Items command on the DDE/OPC menu option:
Any DDE compliant program can be used in the same manner. For maximum
utility Visual Basic applications can be used to interface with module’s database
using DDE connectivity.

by the module when using the MSG instruction: Encapsulated PCCC messages
and CIP Data Table messages. Either method can be used, and the selection is
left to the application developer.
Encapsulated PCCC Messages
PLC5 and SLC5/05 processors containing an Ethernet interface use the
encapsulated PCCC message method. The module simulates these devices and
accepts both read and write commands. The following topics describe the
support for the read and write operations.
Encapsulated PCCC Write Message
Write commands transfer data from the ControlLogix processor to the module.

Accessing an SLC 5 Processor via Ethernet Using MVI46-DFNT
This section explains how to set up Ethernet access to an SLC 5/03 processor
using the MVI46-DFNT module. Port 2 (middle port) should be connected to the
SLC 5/03 RS-232 port using an RS-232 null modem cable. Optionally you can
use Port 3 to emulate Channel 0 on the SLC. A Master DF1 device can be
attached to Port 3 to monitor and control the SLC data files.
The following network should be used:
Conversion software is required in order to convert serial data to TCP/IP format.
The software will typically select a serial port that is not being used and direct to
it to an IP address and port number (MVI46-DFNT Pass-Through Server).
Perform the following steps to set up your network.
Step 1- Configure the Pass-Through Server
The MVI46-DFNT Pass-Through Server connects a local computer serial port to
the module's Ethernet driver. Refer to the configuration file to configure the
following section:

User Manual
Select Y (or Yes) for the Enabled parameter and then configure each
communication parameter.
Step 2- Configure the Serial/IP Converter Software
Conversion software is required in order to convert serial data to TCP/IP format.
The software will select a serial port that is not being used and direct to it to an IP
address and port number (MVI46-DFNT Pass-Through Server). It is essential to
select the MVI46-DFNT IP address and the port number configured on the
previous step.
The serial communication parameters should also match the parameters
configured in the previous step.
Note: You must obtain, license and install a suitable Serial/IP Converter to perform this function.
This tool is not provided or supported by ProSoft Technology.
Step 3- Configure a RS-232 driver in RS-LINX
Open the RS-LINX software and create a new RS-232 driver:

You can now use the new driver created during the previous step to access the
SLC processor.
Open the RSLogix 500 and click on COMMS > SYSTEM COMMS in order to view all
configured drivers.
Click on the newly created driver. The SLC 5/03 processor appears on the

Step 5 - (Optional) Configure the Port 3 Pass-Through
After you configure the MVI46-DFNT pass-through server, you may configure
Port 3 to receive DF1 commands in order to allow access from a DF1 Master to
the SLC data file.
In order to accomplish this, refer to the DF1-Pass-Through Port Section at the
MVI46-DFNT configuration file.
4.17.1 Troubleshooting
If you are unable to connect the software converter to the MVI46-DFNT you may
have to configure the communication parameter used in the network. In order to
achieve a functional communication between the local PC and the SLC
processor, all communication parameters at each part of the network must
match. This means that the communication parameters configured at the
following parts of the network should be the same:
SLC processor Channel 0 (Use RSLogix500)
MVI46-DFNT configuration (DF1 Pass-Through Server Port 1)
Serial/IP Software Converter (required, must obtain separately)
RSLinx RS-232 driver (use the auto-config feature)

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up the MVI46-DFNT?
The module must be configured using RSLogix in order to be recognized by the
software. You do not have to worry about this step if you are using the sample
ladder logic shipped with the module since the module is already configured in
the I/O configuration.
Refer to the User Manual for information about each parameter.
Finally, you must copy the sample ladder logic to your ladder application. It is
strongly suggested that the sample ladder logic is used.
How does the MVI46-DFNT communicate with the SLC?
The communication between the SLC and the MVI46-DFNT is performed through
the backplane. The module’s internal database in constantly copied to the M1 file
and vice versa. The SLC uses a simple COP instruction to write (or read) values
to the module as described in the sample ladder logic.
How do I monitor the MVI46-DFNT internal database?
You can use the debug port interface by selecting the [D] key (Database View).
The database can be viewed in decimal, hexadecimal or ASCII format.
You can also copy the M1 file (which is a copy of the MVI46-DFNT database) to
the SLC memory.
How do I set up the MVI46-DFNT IP address?
Using an ASCII terminal to access the debug port, you can select the network
menu by selecting "@". You can then copy the current network configuration file
to a PC (WATTCP.CFG).
How can I send commands from the MVI46-DFNT?
You must add commands to the current command list in the configuration file and
transfer the file to the MVI46-DFNT.
Can I control the commands from ladder logic?
Yes, using blocks 3000 to 3002, you can change the Enable field on commands
that are already defined in the configuration file. You can disable or enable
(continuously or conditional).
How do I transfer files to the module?
The configuration file can be transferred using the ASCII Terminal used to
connect to the debug port. Selecting option "R" will cause the module to wait for
a configuration file. The user should then send the file using the menu bar in the
ASCII Terminal software.

perform in accordance with published specifications prepared, approved
and issued by ProSoft, and (2) will be free from defects in material or
workmanship; provided these warranties only cover Product that is sold as
new. This Warranty expires three (3) years from the date of shipment for
Product purchased on or after January 1st, 2008, or one (1) year from the
date of shipment for Product purchased before January 1st, 2008 (the
"Warranty Period"). If the Customer discovers within the Warranty Period
a failure of the Product to conform to specifications, or a defect in material
or workmanship of the Product, the Customer must promptly notify
ProSoft by fax, email or telephone. In no event may that notification be
received by ProSoft later than 39 months from date of original shipment.
Within a reasonable time after notification, ProSoft will correct any failure
of the Product to conform to specifications or any defect in material or
workmanship of the Product, with either new or remanufactured
replacement parts. ProSoft reserves the right, and at its sole discretion,
may replace unrepairable units with new or remanufactured equipment.
All replacement units will be covered under warranty for the 3 year period
commencing from the date of original equipment purchase, not the date of
shipment of the replacement unit. Such repair, including both parts and
labor, will be performed at ProSoft’s expense. All warranty service will be
performed at service centers designated by ProSoft.
b) Warranty On Services: Materials and labor performed by ProSoft to repair
a verified malfunction or defect are warranteed in the terms specified
above for new Product, provided said warranty will be for the period
remaining on the original new equipment warranty or, if the original
warranty is no longer in effect, for a period of 90 days from the date of
repair.
