CAPM4/5 Software Installation

1.1. Purpose
The following procedure explains how to install the latest revision software over an
existing version of CAPM4/5 software, whilst retaining all previous control and
protection settings.
! It may also be used to reconfigure the switchgear after a CAPM card has been
replaced.

1.2. Safety
1.2.1. Compatibility of Software and WSOS
Each software version release is supported by a Windows Switchgear Operating
System update.
Any attempt to load a recent software release using a superseded version of WSOS
may result in incorrect file transfer or an inability to communicate with the switchgear.
Always ensure that you have the latest release WSOS and that it is compatible with
the release version of software being installed.
Download from www.nulec.com.au

1.2.2. Isolation of TRIP and CLOSE solenoids


The solenoids must be isolated, when prompted, before the software file transfer is
commenced.
Ensure that the solenoids are not enabled until after the Event Log has been
checked for pickup events.
Enabling the solenoids before confirming that a pickup event has not been generated
may result in incorrect or hazardous switchgear function.

Service Procedure CAPM4/5 Software Installation

1.5.8. Alternative File Transfer Rate


If the software transfer has still not been completed successfully at this point, it may
be re-attempted using a slower transfer rate than the default rate.
Another command may be entered into the Software Command Configuration to
slow down the transfer rate as follows:
! Refer to Step 1.5.6.
! Enter the following command when prompted, ensure character spaces are
included where shown;
cap5load -1 -force -low CCCCCHVV.RRX (software file name)
The new command "-low" enforces the slower transfer rate (allow up to 25 minutes to
complete).

1.5.9. Creation of a Debug File


In the event that the software transfer is still not successful at this point, it may be
advantageous to create a "debug file" for analysis by our Service Department.
To create the file, a new command is entered into the Software Command
Configuration as follows:
! Refer to Step 1.5.6.
! Enter the following command when prompted, ensure character spaces are
included where shown;
cap5load -1 -force -debug CCCCCHVV.RRX (software file name)
The additional command "-debug" causes a communications log of transactions
between the CAPM and the PC to be saved to disk The log file is automatically
saved to the source folder that the software was loaded from as "debug.tmp".
Once saved, the file may be forwarded by e-mail or other means:
! Be aware that the actual file size may increase up to 13MB.
! If forwarded by e-mail, it is recommended that the file be compressed using
WinZip which will reduce the file size to a maximum size of 1.3MB.
