Software tests

These tests should be performed on new versions of device software.

Updating software

  • SD card
  • Ethernet ( SFTP / WinSCP )
  • GWS

Reset setup

  • by DIP switch
  • over IEC101 or IEC104
  • from GWS (over SSH)

Hardware tests

Testing Telem-GW6 Ports

  1. Connect the PC to the Telem GW6 through port 2 RS232, load and writte the Test Configuration Setup "testgw6_3.csv"
    1. Z:\Taimar\1.Test\GW6_allports
  2. Connect the cables following this scheme
    1. Ethernet to network
    2. Port 1-RS422 to Port 5-RS422/485
    3. Port 2-RS232 to Port 10
    4. Port 3-RS232 to Port 6
    5. Port 4 Fiber optic to an external Fibreoptic Modem alredy connected to another device to check the communications.
    6. Port 7 to Port 11
    7. Port 8 to Port 12
    8. Port 9 to Port 13
    9. GPS port to an external GPS device.
  3. Check that all the leds are blinking
  4. Open TDC, export IEC objects from Z:\Taimar\1.Test\GW6_allports\objects.csv and check IEC obj. all 7 BI-s must have value 1.(or 0 in IEC.exe)
  5. Make sure u-boot's press any key to stop booting is disabled.
    • Use the bootstrapper app.
    • If this is not disabled, GW6 will not boot if you send any data to Port2 (GWS connected with RS232)

Testing Internal Clock

  1. Change the time in the PC
    • GW6 software does not allow syncing to a date older than 1. january 2011
  2. Go to TDC, GW6 Setup, Common, Time Settings and make sure that the Enable GPS is not selected.
  3. Go to TDC, Settings and click on Gen. Int. + Time Sync.
  4. Power ON/OFF (Wait until it restarts)
  5. Open Putty
    1. Load saved session "GW6-Timetest" and open (It will log on as martem user automatically, It will give you the time once you have type the password) // if there is no "GW6-Timetest" use IP 10.0.0.144 user: martem and once logged in, enter command: date
      • Password: Xooviet0
  6. The time should macht with the PCs time.//if not(like 1 jan 2000 0:xx:xx), start from 4 again(power on/off)

Testing GPS

  1. Go to TDC, GW6 Setup, Common, Time Settings and Enable GPS (Optical). Writte the new configuration on the Device.
  2. Check the GPS green led is blinking.
  3. Power ON/OFF (Wait until it restarts)
    1. Load saved session "GW6-Timetest" and open (It will log on as martem user automatically, It will give you the time once you have type the password)
    2. Password: Xooviet0
  4. The time now should macht the real time.//if not, ask for date couple of times again, GPS sync might take some time.
