7.1. Sending Parameters to a File


1                     Start Procomm and access the APS-16 Command Mode.

2                     Use the /P command to disable the APS-16's echo feature as described in Section 5. When the Port Configuration menu is displayed, option 12 enables/disables the echo feature.

3                     Press the [Page Down] key.

4                     ProComm's Download Menu will appear. Select (A) ASCII. ProComm will display a prompt which reads "ASCII DOWNLOAD -Please enter file name".

5                     Type in a name for the file that will contain the saved APS­16 parameters using the full path and drive designation. For example, "C:\APS.PAR".


6. At the ProComm screen, type /U and press [Enter]. The APS-16 will send a series of command lines to the file specified in Step 5. Each line describes parameters for an individual Port.

a) The /U command must be invoked before ProComm's download timeout is reached. The download timeout can be redefined using ProComm's set-up menu.

b) ProComm will emit a Beep when the download timeout period has elapsed.

7. When the APS-16 has finished sending parameters, press [Esc] to terminate ProComm's Download mode.
