Appendix F - USB Operation

Appendix F - USB Operation

Overview

There are 3 main uses for the USB on a GMS

system

• Ability to download a log of up to the past 50,000 errors, events, or jobs that can contain over 150,000 snapshots of critical dispense information.

• Ability to download, modify, and upload custom language files

• Ability to download and upload system configurations

• This data includes most user selectable and user configurable settings.

• This data does not include pump counters, error and event logs, shot and sequence counters

USB Options

The only options for USB on the ADM are in

Advanced

Screen 4 , see page 81.

Download Log Files

If the “Enable Downloading of USB Logs” is checked, the user can use a USB stick-drive to download the log files.

NOTICE

Low-quality USB stick drives may lead to burning out the USB port on the ADM. Use only high-quality

USB stick-drives with the ADM USB port.

To download the log files, insert a high-quality USB stick-drive into the USB port in the bottom of the ADM.

The ADM will automatically begin downloading the log files as well as the custom language file (DISP-

TEXT.TXT) and the system settings (SETTINGS.TXT).

The status of the download will be shown in the Status bar.

The first option is a checkbox that enables or disables the downloading of the Error Event and Shot Data log files. The Shot Data log runs during all circulation, shots, and operator modes.

The second option is the Erase icon which will reset the last download date to a time where all logs can be downloaded. This will allow the user to download all the

USB log entries, which may take over 2 hours if the log files are full. Currently the ADM does not monitor the

USB logs and alert the user when data may be overwritten so in order to minimize download times and the risk of losing data it is recommended that the user download the logs every 2 weeks or more often if the machine is used during more than one full shift a day.

Log Files, Folder Structure

F IG . 24: DOWNLOAD, DATAxxxx Folders

Each time a stick-drive is inserted into the ADM USB port, a new folder named DATAxxxx is created. The number at the end of the folder name is incremented each time a stick-drive is inserted and data is downloaded or uploaded. In each DATAxxxx folder there is three log files. They are formatted as .csv (comma separated value) files and can be opened by most text editors or data processing programs such as Excel.

Example 1-ERROR File

The 1-ERROR file is the Errors and Events log file.

Transfer System Settings

NOTICE

Low-quality USB stick drives may lead to burning out the USB port on the ADM. Use only high-quality

USB stick-drives with the ADM USB port.

Use the following process to transfer system settings from one machine to another.

1.

Insert a high-quality USB stick-drive into the USB port on the system with the settings to be transferred. Once the download is complete the SET-

TINGS.TXT file will be located in the “DOWNLOAD” folder.

NOTICE

The user should never attempt to modify the SET-

TINGS.TXT file in any way. Graco is not responsible for damages caused by an improperly modified setup file.

NOTE: Before the update begins the ADM automatically shuts down the system, aborting any in-progress dispensing. When the software is updating the system a pop-up box will appear to inform the user of the update and the system will lock. Once the update is complete the ADM will tell the user to cycle power to apply the updates. Once this box appears it is safe to remove the drive before cycling power.

6.

When the software is done updating, remove the

USB stick-drive from the ADM USB port and install in a computer.

7.

Navigate to the UPLOAD folder and remove the

SETTINGS.TXT file.

NOTE: Immediately after uploading the settings, remove the SETTINGS.TXT file from the UPLOAD folder to prevent accidental loss of data the next time the USB stick-drive is inserted into the ADM USB port. If there is a SETTINGS.TXT file in the UPLOAD folder when the USB stick-drive is inserted into the ADM USB port the software will try to update the ADM.

2.

Plug the USB stick-drive into a computer.

3.

Navigate to the DOWNLOAD folder.

4.

Copy the SETTINGS.TXT file from the DOWNLOAD folder into the UPLOAD folder.

5.

Remove the USB stick-drive from the computer and install it into the ADM USB port for the second machine. The software will automatically begin updating.

When the software is updating the system a pop-up box will appear to inform the user of the update and the system will lock. Once the update is complete the ADM will tell the user to cycle power to apply the updates. Once this box appears it is safe to remove the drive before cycling power.
