Anybody have MCS-CONFIG File for Petra Chillers.Thanks.
You will need to contact MCS factory for that...
The connect program can be downloaded from the website...
but configuration program is restricted to MCS factory trained techs...
You should be able to do everything you need thru MCS connect...
If I can do everything with MCS CONNECT then what is difference between MCS CONFIG and MCS CONNECT.

(and really screw stuff up if you dont know what your doing)
The connect program lets you work within the design configuration for the unit. Think of it as an expanded service panel... 90% of the setpoints can be viewed/ adjusted, set up trending, look at alarms ect... So for machine tuning and monitoring connect should be all you need... Especially if working on an OEM package...
You should be able to download mcs connect off the website, hook up a null modem serial cable, open the program via local serial and monitor your chiller without having to navigate thru the magnum...
Hope that helps!
Thank you for your detailed answer.
MCS- CONFIG is a software by which you can open & change your configuration file which varies chiller to chiller. If you need MCS-CONFIG software contact on my profile email.
Please check,I send you email.

As Rob stated CFG is what we use to build the Configuration. It is not something that you go and do without training. If changes need to be made to the Petra CFG you can get that done through MCS. To go to one of MCS's training classes would help.
