The GE Software PROM Set DS200KLDCF1A features two PROM modules for use with GE Speedtronic Mark V boards. The PROM modules store the parameters you define for the drive configuration. The information on the PROMs can be edited and updated on the PROMs. There are two methods to edit the configuration file. The most direct method is to edit the configuration through the control panel on the drive.
The control panel consists of a keypad to navigate through the configuration and apply changes. There is also a two-line display for viewing the information. The two-line display also shows conditions in the drive that have caused warning and error messages. For example, if an overheat condition exists, a message will display.
There is a series of menu selections that assist you in locating the section of the configuration you want to change. The user interface is also useful for other tasks, such as performing downloads through the serial connection. Using the control panel to make changes to the configuration is most useful for making small updates but is cumbersome for making large scale changes to the configuration.
The best method for editing the configuration file is to download the configuration file to a laptop that has the editing tool installed on it. The editing tool enables you to search, change, and delete the parameters in the configuration. When the configuration resides on the laptop, you can distribute it to multiple drives that use the same configuration.
