Firmware Upgrade Instructions


Warnings

To avoid potential equipment damage, Galil recommends that all external power supplies, amplifiers, motors, encoders and I/O be powered down or disconnected from the controller before this operation is undertaken. Failure to do so may result in damage to equipment or even personnel.

Whenever the controller has firmware loaded, all programs, arrays, variables, and motion control parameters stored in EEPROM will be ERASED. Similar to a master reset, the controller will be returned to factory default settings.

  1. Connect from a PC using a straight through SERIAL connection (RS232) only (with Hardware Handshaking)
  2. Run the GalilSuite Software that can be downloaded from the website or requested on CD
  3. Use the GalilSuite software to connect to the controller
  4. Select 'Configuration' from the GalilSuite Launcher Toolbar to open the Configuration Tool
  5. In the Configuration Tool select 'Load Firmware' from the 'Configuration' menu
