Jan

As you may or may not know, there are four dip-switches which can be found on the back back of an E1000 HMI. If you’ve ever wondered what they’re for, don’t fret – this guide will outline their functions.

There are five configurations which can be made using the dip switches. The process is fairly straight forward:

  1. Power down HMI
  2. set dip switches – done by moving the switch into the up position
  3. power up HMI
  4. follow on screen instructions (if any)

 

And here are the five configurations:

 

0000:

Run mode, normal operation.

 

0010:

System restore, resets the file system and registry & re installs the system program – basically its a ‘restore to factory defaults’ setting. Beware, you will lose your entire project off the HMI when using this mode.

 

0100:

Image Load Mode, this mode allows the firmware of the HMI to be upgraded. Beware, this mode will also cause you to lose your whole project.

 

1000:

User Menu Mode: this mode allows you to enter several menu’s to calibrate the HMI, these include options to edit: Network settings (IP address), calibrate touch and set the date/time. From this menu you’ll also be able to load a project from a memory card, update the EM module and erase the project. Furthermore you can enter some of the aforementioned mode’s including Transfer mode and Run mode.

 

1110:

Self test, this mode does exactly what it says on the tin. It allows you to test the features of the HMI – to name a few: LED’s, Buttons, Buzzer, serial comms, battery condition, EEprom, touch screen, back light and colour test.

 

 

This concludes the guide. We hope it was helpful.
