Starting with version 3, the Main
program has some aditional functions:
upgrade : download the
latest firmware file from the
, save it somewhere (for instance, to the desktop), and just drag
and drop it to the Armadillo image. The upgrade process will start.
Most options are quite easy to
"Auto start with user session", check
this and the program will launch itself every time you start your windows
session. Good idea if you are using automation software.
"Start minimized" to avoid filling the
screen. It will collapse itself to the lower right area of the
"Utility programs": can be selected
from here. You can launch them inmediatly ( "Go" ), select them to auto start
when this Main program stars ( "Auto" ), and even instruct them to start
The temperature sensor calibration
allows you to fine tune your system.
The parameters for the internal sensors should be
ok with the default values, but the EXTERNAL ones may need some
We have 3 factors, as seen in the software (v.
3.0+), C1, F, and C2.
C2 is mainly for offseting the internal box
excess temperature, so won't be used for the external ones.
F is the slope of the straigh line
C1 is the offset (that is, the value read at
going to business, for the ARMADILLO CONTROLLER:
the LM61 temp. sensor: C1 = 192, F = 1.7
the LM60 temp. sensor: C1 = 94, F = 3
for the "CLASSIC" CONTROLLER:
the LM61 temp. sensor: C1 = 190, F = 3.6
the LM60 temp. sensor, I'm getting odd results, but I'm fairly
confident the same values as the internal sensor will work (no
isolation in this model), so: C1 = 133.5, F=
Don't forget to press "Test" after changing the
values, or they won't be saved!
Lastly, please note the "Specific PORT" in the "Connect
with" section; this allows to overcome a limitation with certain Windows
versions / patches that block the detection of the port by the software.
