The Service terminal is a program used for handling the CU of the MORSE system by a personal computer. It allows the setting of CU parameters, the monitoring of traffic on individual channels, the running of tests, the reading of records about past traffic and other functions. It is part of the applications group for handling a MORSE network and is accessible on www.racom.eu.
Choose> on the main page or > for the older recomended versions and choose the appropriate directory:
utils/actual/ – here we find the current control applications file for the CU. According to the operating system in use we select the appropriate file; for Windows the file is
utils-win-gui-22.214.171.124.exe. Number 126.96.36.199 indicates the software version and this number incrementally increases with development.
firmware/actual/ – firmware modules contained in radio modems; these do not need to be loaded as one of these modules is already loaded at manufacturer. Next work with the firmware see the article Download.
utils/release-candidate/ – these directories, accessible at higher levels of access via the Internet, contain new, not fully tested software
After choice utils/actual/ next menu appears:
Since the 188.8.131.52 version the .exe file is avilable, here
utils-win-gui-184.108.40.206.exe. It is suitable for the automatic
installation into PC. Copy the file in the PC and start it. If you reply
NO after request about backup, then the old Utils set will be overwritten.
If the reply is YES, then it is saved in the directory Utils-xxxx. The
c:\Racom\Utils\ containing all important files is
created. Setr can be started also from the Windows Start menu > > > > .
The other possibility is to use the file
utils-win-gui-220.127.116.11.zip. Unpack it into suitable
directory. This sub-directory contains more files, however the absolute
minimum requirement for work with the CU is
Files with firmware modules for the CU can be downloaded from
firmware/actual/. The directory contains
two sets of modules:
m1r-757-mx.zip(formerly mr25-721-mx.zip) are designed for MR25, MR25ET, MCM302
m2r-18.104.22.168-cx10.fkl.zip(formerly mr900-721-mx.zip) are designed for MR900, MR400, MR300, MR160, MC100, MG100
Create the subdirectory
\fkl\ into directory
c:\Racom\Utils\ and unpack in it the needed files from
m2r-22.214.171.124-cx10.fkl.zip. Here it is e.g.
cb10.fkl. Example of the location of
For controlling the CU we use utility:
|Setr||Software for controlling the CU|
|Memcp||Loading software to the CU|
|Netcnf||Upload/download CU configuration|
|Netlock||Locking the CU|
For a description of downloading a firmware program module to the CU please see www.racom.eu, section Support/Software/Utils/Download firmware.
For problem-free configuration and control of the CU we recommend using the same version of firmware in the CU and control utilities (Setr, Memcp and others).
A service cable serves for connecting the PC to the CU and has contacts connected in the following manner:
Now we can start
Setr.exe. If the service cable
is connected to the PC via another port than com1 then we run Setr with
the appropriate parameter, e.g.
setr -p2. The service
terminal screen then appears. Above there is the Setr version number (
ver. 126.96.36.199 ), at the lower edge there is the address of
the connected node in the CU and the number of the PC port. The main
content of the screen is the MORSE main menu, from which it is possible to
fully control the CU.
For the duration of the connection of the service cable port SCC0 is disconnected from the physical interface, the default parameters (19200 bit/s, N81, protokol MARS-A) are set automatically and communicates via the service cable to application Setr (or Netcnf, Memcp…). The communication with user equipment connected to SCC0 connector is recovered after disconnecting the service cable.
This functionality performs SCC0 in MR400 or SCC2 in MR25.
