    1 Setting up the software When you setup the PSM-software from the file PSM_1_5_2_1.msi (or later versions), you must remove the earlier versions from the windows control panel. When all versions have been removed, you can setup the latest version.

    When setting up the software, the program will ask for directory. The default directory is C:, but the user can give the desired directory, as it has been done in the example.

    The .Exe file is in the Bin directory together with the ini and other setup files. Don’t be surprised or confused when seeing a large number of files in the bin directory, the software is meant for many similar devices and all necessary files are there. The data files are in data directory.

    The main setup data is in two files in the BIN directory (ini and npf), which are located in the user defined place, D:\programfiles\Noptel\PSM\bin, for example

    2 Ini and Npf files The files where the measurement environment and operation is defined are named *.npf and *.ini

    *.ini file contains data for the computer environment

    *.npf file contains data for the measurement environment

    The .ini file can be edited, if required for setting application related data. Some data will be written from the PSM program

    Npf file defines the parameters and other related data

    3 Start operation Connect the selected devices to the PC and turn power on

    Select the device type (PSM / PSMR)

    Select the number of devices to run

    Select the communication ports

    Select the baud rates

    Select the path to the directory

    Start operation by clicking TEST-icon

    PSM-icon becomes active

    Click the PSM-icon to continue

    4 Confirmation from the unit After the start the PSM definition window comes active and the program reads all necessary data from the unit. When the identification data is read and shown in the window, the unit is ready to measurement.

    If the data reading fails, an error message appears. Check power supply and connections and try again.

    5 Measurement There are two ways to continue: start the measure or change setup

    Or you can always return to the general startup

    If the setup has already been made, you can go to measurement, otherwise it is recommended to check the setup first

    Note: during this phase the program reads the stored parameters from the npf file and writes these parameters top the device. The parameters in the EEPROM are not used, if they differ from the parameters in the file. The calibration parameters are not changed.

    In the main window you can:

    • see the signal power

    • see the raw values

    • see the calculated values

    • see the buffer size

    • see X/Y display

    • see time-display

    • start measurement (raw data or calculated data)

    • stop measurement

    • scale or skew the displays (select by pushing the right button of the mouse)

    If recording is selected, you can see the red dot in the start icon

    During the measurement you can go to setup and change settings, however it is often recommended that you stop measurement before changing settings

    6 Setting up the PSM-200 device

    In the PSM-200 setup window you can:

    • read parameters from the device • write parameter settings to the device • load settings from file • save settings to file • start measurement (normal or raw data) • stop measurement • load permanent settings from the device

    Device parameters have divided to separate windows:

    • base • filter • interface • addition

    Study the meaning and use of the parameters from the operator’s manual before using them

    7 Setting up the PSM-R device

    In the PSM-R setup window you can:

    • write parameter settings to the device

    • load settings from file

    • save settings to file

    • start measurement (normal or raw data)

    • stop measurement

    Study the meaning and use of the parameters from the operator’s manual before using them

    8 Recording

    The last setup window is for recording

    There you can define:

    • Type of recording

    • Name of file

    • Number of saved measurements

    • Threshold levels

    • Recording data precision

    • Comments

    The recording modes are:

    • n samples from the start of the measurement

    • n samples from the stop of measurement

    • continuous measurement

    • threshold measurement

  • ____________________________________________________________________________________

    ____________________________________________________________________________________ PSM Win Software for PSM-200 / PSM-R Page 13/16

    In threshold measurement only the measurements exceeding the given limits will be recorded.

    If level is 1 mm, when ever the difference to the reference is more than 1 mm, the result will be recorded. If the result stays stable for half second, the new reference will be set.

    That data is recorded to the directory given in the ini-file (C:\programfiles2\PSM\data)

    The data is in two files:

    • topic and settings (.npf)

    • measurement data (.txt)
