The "System Settings / Utilities" Page, accessed from the EIM home screen, contains several back pages for system settings. A description of each is below, or a reference to another article if it exists.
AboutThe About screen
(Pg. 4) displays the serial number, hardware version, and software version of
the EIM and each module connected to the EIM.
The touch screen can be
re-calibrated if it is determined that button selection appears to be offset
from what is displayed on the screen. To calibrate the touch screen:
For accuracy when selecting the crosshairs, it is
recommended that you use a stylus, such as the blunt end of a pen, rather
than using your finger.
- Enter Engineering
security access mode
- Navigate to the About screen (Pg. 4)
- Select the “Calibrate Touch Screen” button to
start the calibration application
- Very carefully, use quick motions to touch each
crosshair as they appear on the screen
- After the calibration, the screen will return to
the About screen (Pg. 4) and display
a confirmation box that must be accepted
- If the confirmation box is not accepted, the
touch screen will omit the new calibration data
Use caution not to double tap or select each crosshair
as it will result in a bad calibration. The best method to not double tap is
to select the crosshair in one quick motion.
Go To PageThe "Go To Page" screen can be used to navigate to a page by the page number
Software UpdateThe "Software Update" page is used to update the software on the EIM. To use, insert a USB drive with the software update into the EIM, and click "Start Update".
Clean ScreenThe "Clean Screen" page shows a blank screen so that the touch screen can be cleaned with a cloth without pressing any buttons.
Main HelpThe main help button goes to the help module of the EIM. This is the same as the "Help" button on the EIM home screen.
MODBUSThe "Modbus" page is for setting up the Modbus connection. It is discussed more in-depth in the article "ETS Modbus RTU"
Config FilesThe "Config Files" page can be used to save or load settings from one EIM to another. To use, insert a USB drive and click "Write" for a module or all modules. Then take the USB drive to another unit and use the same screen "Read" button to read the settings and use them on the new unit. This can speed up setup times.
ResetIn Engineering security mode, the system can be reset to the factory
default values within the Reset
screen (Pg. 5) of the EIM. Press the “Reset AFRC, EMD, EIM” button to reset
those modules to factory defaults. Press the “Reset ICM” button to reset the
Ignition to factory defaults. After reset the Ignition will be in
“Configuration Required” state until ignition setup is completed.
Datalog FilesThis page can be used to download or delete the datalog files. For more information, see the article "EIM Datalogging".
Home BackgroundThis page can be used to add a background watermark to the EIM home page.
Troubleshooting FileThe EIM can accept a custom troubleshooting file for showing troubleshooting trees for certain shutdown conditions. This file will usually be supplied by EMIT and uploaded on this page.
Change Setup PasswordThis page is used to change the setup password.
