|XML Code Processor in TRM/xx - Getting Started|
It is easy if you bought TRM/xx system together with XML code processor. The software is preinstalled on an internal compact flash card (CF card), the system is ready to run. Step guide for the next things:
Step 1: Unpack the TRM/xx system.
Step 2: Make cable connections with TRM/xx. Connector your TRM/xx with your network.
(Use the hardware documentation for information where to connect cables.)
Step 3: Power ON TRM/xx.
We delivers TRM/xx with XML Code Processor and a preinstalled standard XML configuration file. After booting you see a display message like this:
Step 4: Setting IP adress, F1: ip
For using full features of TRM/xx,
please connect it via your network. Use our standard XML configuration
file for setting an IP adress inside your network.
Last Step: Try an FTP file transfer connection between your desktop PC and TRM system
Use IP adress of TRM - set in step 4. Use an FTP client software on your desktop, e.g. WS_FTP or others. Open an connection with user "xml" and password "xml". See following screen shots:
|Using XML Code Processor in TRM/xx|
Congratulations! That´s all. Your code
processor and the first XML configuration file (the small setup program)
Now you can download your own XML files into the TRM/xx. Samples for XML config files are on our sample page.
On the other way - there are some useful things to know:
1) The name of the XML configuration file inside TRM/xx has to be "trm-code.xml" always!
It does not matter how you name the XML configuration file on your PC - but if it is in TRM/xx the code processor looks and starts a file named TRM-CODE.XML.
2) The configuration file is always on the compact flash card in TRM/xx (CF card).
Buying a TRM/xx with XML code processor indicates you have an installed compact flash card CF card inside the system. We will do this for you.
3) The CF card is mounted as /mnt/cf.
4) If you want to download your own XML confíguration file, you have to download a new version of trm-code.xml directly to the CF card and restart the system.
How you can download an own XML configuration file? - With FTP! Here is a short introduction about download with FTP:
Step 1: Create a FTP connection to TRM/xx. User "xml", password "xml".
Step 2: Download TRM-CODE.XML configuration file from your PC to the TRM/xx.
Step 3: Abort running XML application in TRM
In our demo file, use F4: ende / restart the system. You see a XML Code Processor ABORTED message on the display of the TRM/xx and you can restart with ENTER. During restart the code processor will automatically use the new XML configuration file.
That´s it! Now you can create own XML configuration files on your desktop PC, download them into the TRM/xx and use them there!
Of course our PC XML code generator TRM-CODE-GEN.EXE for WIN32 is the easiest way for editing your own XML configuration file. If you use this software, there is an FTP client included - so the software can do everything for you! Our XML sample file shows like this:
