General FAQ
  【Question】 【Answer】
1 How long does it take to load the panel condition? It takes 13 seconds or less.
2 Is there any state which shows the completion of the loading of panel condition? No, there isn’t.
There is a method to use the command that acquire the current state as an alternative. In the use of RS-232C, when TRC (Reads the time) and LBC (Reads the panel condition label) command are sent, the time and label are returned after completion of the panel condition loading, so it enables to confirm the loading completion. In the use of external control (LAN connect), sending the state acquisition command can be an alternative method. For the state acquisition command, please refer to the instruction manual of the CF-4500 External Control Function Reference Guide of [5.12 Status Acquisition Commands].
3 How long does it take to output the judgment results after the measurement (average processing)? It takes 300 msec or less with the block mode (FFT line number: 800, judgment block: 5).
4 The judgment block differs depending on the target object. Is it possible to change the judgment block without switching the panel condition? If the measurement condition is stable and each measurement object has only one judgment block, it is possible to use the 4 level comparator function of the input contact. Select one judgment block to set ON from four judgment blocks. This function can be used for both block comparator and shape comparator according to the combination of short-circuit IN1 (input 1 contact terminal) or IN2 (input 2 contact terminal) on the rear panel.
5 Is it possible to have a hardcopy of the screen of the CF-4500? There is no printout command in the main unit of the CF-4500.
6 Is there any recommended USB memory? Please use the following USBs which have been already confirmed the operation.
Please note that many models are available on the market, but some of them did not work properly.
Transcend JetFlash V10 (TS2GJFV10) 2G
Transcend JetFlash V33 (TS2GJFV33) 2G
Transcend JetFlash 330 (TS4GJF330) 4G
7 What kind of communication command can be registered to the input contact? It is possible to register the RS-232C command and external control command.
For each command, please refer to the instruction manual of the CF-4500 [RS-232C] or [External Control Function Reference Guide].
8 Is it possible to set AND or OR to each block when several judgment blocks are set? It is not possible to set AND or OR to each block. For NG judgment condition, set one of "ALL" or "ONE".
When all blocks are judged as NG, the total judgment result becomes NG, if you set to "ALL".
When any of one block is judged as NG, the total judgment result becomes NG, if you set to "ONE".
9 By setting START CLEAR ON, the judgment results on the screen are cleared every time the command is started.
The main unit screen of the CF-4500 shows "-", but the I/O judgment is continuously outputted. Is it possible to output corresponding to the judgment display of the screen?
The judgment output of the terminal is saved until the next judgment result, even if the judgment screen of the CF-4500 shows "-".
To clear the output, it is necessary to turn the COMPARE key to OFF and ON.
To operate Averaging start > Judgment > Averaging start (Clear the judgment result at this time) continuously, assign the command (In the use of RS-232C, it is AST CMS CMT) which corresponds to average start or judgment OFF/ ON to any terminal of Input relay by using the digital I/O. When this terminal is turned ON, COMPARE is turned OFF/ON together with the averaging start. The main unit screen shows "-" to turn the judgment result OFF.
10 When the CF-4500 has CF-0458 Power source backup function, is it ok to turn the main power immediately after the CF-4500 is started? If you turn the main power OFF immediately after the CF-4500 is started, it will be not normally finished even the CF-0458 is equipped. Please continue conducting at least 15 minutes or more after main power is supplied.
11 When the panel condition is loaded, the Input relay set to main unit is cleared. Is it possible to save the setting condition of the Input relay to the panel condition? If the version of the main unit is 1.0.0.102 or before, the setting condition of the digital I/O is not reflected to the panel condition. Please check the version of the main unit by operating the soft key [CONDITION] > [COND. VIEW] in this order.
12 When the CF-4500 main unit is started, WAVE MODE is turned OFF. Is it possible to turn the WAVE MODE ON? If the version of the main unit is 1.0.0.102 or before, the setting condition of the WAVE MODE is not reflected to the panel condition. Please check the version of the main unit by operating the soft key [CONDITION] > [COND. VIEW] in this order.
13 Is it possible to manage data of several CF-4500s in one PC by the external control function? It might be possible, but there is no performance guarantee. Command cannot be sent to several units of the CF-4500 at the same time.
When you send command from the program to a unit of CF-4500, please wait the response to start sending command to the other unit.
14 In which timing is the OUTPUT RELAY of [PANEL COND READ] to short-circuit and return to open? It is short-circuited approx. 1.2 seconds before the panel condition load is completed. After 1.2 seconds, it returns to open state. INPUT, RELAY or RS232C command can be accepted after checking that it is in open state.
