    Recheck your COMM settings and the direct connect cable polarity.

    I have checked the communication thru PSI setup. Tried with all available baud rates. It is communicating with the controller and all editing and programming screens are perfectly OK.
    Problem only with below screens
    1. Current status display
    2. All point History
    3. Trend screen
    *************

    Direct connect cable polarity??
    I am not sure where to check this. We are connecting Patton 2085F to the PC COM port using a 25 PIN to 9 PIN converter.
    Connection to the controller is made thru a 6-wire cable using RJ-11 jack in the Patton.
    (Picture attached)

    Any advice.
    Regards

    You can't fix it, you're wasting your time on it, its a problem with the video card and the characters that it supports.

    Hi,
    It is solved.
    I used DOSBOX software to emulate DOS screen.
    After installing DOSBOX, configured the COM1 port with the configuration tool.
    Mounted the PSI directory as a drive.
    Then run the program zpsipc.exe
    Everything worked perfectly. No more gargled characters in "Current status display.

    The clue I have received from other threads in this forum.

    Thank you

    Jasy

    I also would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me get a copy of XPSI and any BC manual that may help. I am trying to help a customer with Multizone's, GCM's and an Invensys/Niagra frontend. Thanks in advance.

    Mnet-CI

    I am needing the Mnet-CI software. I have the cable to access the MN-FLO3T. I can't locate the software.

    hello, all looks like im in the right thread now. we are taking on a new customer with an older bc network 8000 system, micozine mz2a, gcm-84121, running signal software. the customer only has old brochure info and no programming our operational manuals for anything, can any point me to this literature. we believe the gcm has lost its programing and are hoping the signal software has backed up that data to the hard drive so we can reload it to the gcm...we need some manuals on how to do this please.Also this signal program is running on a windows 95 platform... haven't seen that in a while. anyone ever take signal and run it on an xp machine. we have serial number for it but no program installation disk.

    maybe it has ... unlikely though. theyre pretty robust....can you communicate with hyperterm and see?

    Signal should run in a virtual machine... Signal disks I may have somewhere ... there are issues matching dongles and serial numbered disks though.

    Dont have literature....not in pdf anyway.

    Restoring a GCM from Signal isnt all that easy to set up....even with the literature...havent done it in over 5 years.

    depends on the field architecture but ...I would recommend ripping it out and putting Tridium w/ ASD driver on top.

    ....more info pls

    SCARLETSPIDER If you have access to the SIGNAL software , reloading the program to the GCM ( if it has been saved ) is not very hard to do nor is saving it to SIGNAL from the field panels ( GCM / LCM ) MZIIs get saved in XPSI.

    The manuals are still available , many on here have them in PDF form and pass them around , if you want to purchase them you can get a set without too much trouble.

    yes if anyone can send me whatever manuals you have related to the network 8000 system, signal software (old runs on win98), manuals on the gcm, mz2, any of it would be much appreciated even if you need me to pay. My email is in my profile so send me anything, please or a note about what you have, what format its in and how much your asking for it. THANK YOU! side note- the signal seems to have a backup in the *dir listing, but i dont want to attempt it with out the proper instructions, also i found an old win98 machine that still functions and i am going to try to copy signal to the new machine and see if i can play with it and load any back up data to another gcm that is either a spare or was a bad one that no one threw away, to much turn over at facility and no one knows. We have never had to replace one of these, what would be the best option to replace it (software and hardware) with that would allow us to retain as much of the existing hardware and controllers, but be new enough were it wont be going obsolete or proprietary that we would not be allowed to service it.
    system controls 1 chiller, 8 ahu, 100+ fan coil units.

    also if you can send me anything and its over 20-25mb i have a dropbox , just email me and ill send you the name.

    does anyone have a copy of signal software...?
    was able to get all points reloaded into gcm, and most had no comm errors.,
    but after i had reinstalled the project and it was functioning fine, i was reading through one of the books on site and the screen popped up a message that said something about security, i did not really catch it in time to read. the signal program shut down and now will not restart. everytime win restarts or i click on the icon it, brings up signal window and says "sorry this program has not been enabled" you have to click ok then signal window shuts down.....anybody?
