Televac AN 3007: Changing the MM200 Analog Output Settings

Description

This application note explains the process for changing the MM200 analog output settings from a Windows 7 PC. The serial communications program Tera Term must be installed prior to following these instructions, and a serial to USB converter must be purchased. If you don’t have Tera Term installed, click here to download.

Instructions

1. Plug the serial to USB converter into your PC.

2. Open the Start Menu.

3. Open the Control Panel.

4. Open Hardware and Sound.

5. Open the Device Manager.

6. Expand the Ports (COM & LPT) drop down.

7. Determine the COM port assignment for your USB to serial converter, in this example the converter is assigned to COM3.

8. Open TeraTerm.

9. Open the Setup menu and select the Serial port… option.

10. Change the Port setting to the COM port for your USB to serial converter, in this example it is COM3.

11. Ensure that the remainder of the settings are the following, then select OK:

  1. Baud rate: 9600
  2. Data: 8 bit
  3. Parity: none
  4. Stop: 1 bit
  5. Flow control: none
  6. Transmit delay: 0 msec/char, 0 msec/line

12. Open the Setup menu and select the Terminal setup… option

13. Ensure that the settings are the following, then select OK:

  1. Receive: CR+LF
  2. Transmit: CR+LF
  3. Local echo checked

14. Send the following commands to change the analog output setting, this example changes the 7B output to Linear (<CR> is equivalent to pressing the Enter key). A full list of commands and analog output options can be found in the table below.

  1. R7BN<CR>
  2. SE<CR>
