When updating the tracker software through the EditorGT program, and it stops loading or locks up halfway through the procedure the only way of updating the software is to program it using a serial link from com port 2 on the back of the Controller to the Tracker CPU card.
You will need to shut down the pc and ensure that the switch located on the Tracker CPU Card is in the BOOT position and also take note of the CPU number.
If the CPU on the Tracker Card is ST 10F 167 – Q6 you would need to use the MEMTOOL program to program the CPU.
( for the Memtool program you will need the Track2aa.H86 file which is version 2aa of the tracker software)
If the CPU on the Tracker Card is ST 10F 168 – Q6 you would need to use the Flash program to program the CPU.
( for the Flash program you will need the boot2aa.H86 file which is version 2aa of the tracker software)
Replace the Tracker CPU card and power up the controller, the tracker download programs are kept on the E:\ drive of the Controller, on some earlier models they were not saved on the controller, if so you are able to retrieve them from our ftp site.
Once you have completed the CPU download remember to power off the controller and set the Switch on the Tracker CPU card back to the RUN position.
You will need to have a cable made up about 1m in length with a 9 pin D-type female connector on both ends and the wiring as follows:
D-type female D-type female
