I've downloaded V+_16.4D7_AIM_4.2C4_SW.zip. Which files should I put on CF card for Smart Controller CX p/N 20000-310 ? Unable to understand from Readme files. Thank you.

Hi,

a V+ update contains the installation of the new V+ operating system on the CF, the copying of the utilities,AIM if you use it and possibly a firmware update of the controller.

Which software are you currently using on the SmartController
- Adept Windows
- Adept Desktop
- Adept ACE

Depending on the software there are different V+ update processes to use. The easiest is Adept ACE.

Hi,

I have the latest version(v 17.0) of V+ downloaded on my windows PC. I am not able to update my V+ to the latest version as i cannot connect to the controller and also not able to check the V+ version on Adept ACE. Is there any other way of updating V+ ?

Hi ,

We have ADEPT CX Smartcontroller used by integration company for a Cartesian robot since 9 years ago , the robot has stopped completely & after checking we found that ADEPT CX controller is not working anymore .

Right now we are going to purchase a new ADEPT CX Controller but we would like to know :

1- Assuming the CX is defective & CF card is healthy ; can we just remove the CF card from defective controller & place it inside the new CX controller if they are with same part number without performing any programming or configuration ?

2- Since we don't know if the CF card is also damaged or not , is there any way to connect the CF card to a PC via USB card reader & back-up the data or read them to know if the CF card is healthy or not ?

We are afraid that CF card is also damaged so in case we purchase a new CX controller & previous card is damaged ; we have to consult the integrator to perform programming again ; unfortunately integrator company has been bankrupted and does not exit anymore !!!

Please advise .
