ACMx Controller Operating System Version 4.52

The APACS+ ACMx System Software Version 4.52 contains an upgrade to the operating system required for the ACMx.

Note:  This version of APACS+ ACMx System Software is compatible with PCS 7 / APACS OS Versions 6.1 and 7.0.

This QuickPatch resolves issues seen with earlier versions of the ACMx Operating System, specifically:

  • Redundant systems when powered down may power up with orphaned 29:10 (Module's IOBus Side A failed) or 29:11 (Module's IOBus Side B failed) errors posted against I/O modules.

For further information read the ACMx release notes after installation is complete via the start menu or in the acmx_rel.txt file in the 4-mation directory.


Required User Action:

Prerequisite:  ACMx Version 4.50 must be installed prior to installing this software update.  Install ACMx Version 4.50 from the APACS Control Version 7.0 CD or by downloading and installing APACS Control QuickPatch CTRL-19 available as ID: 22126782.

Download and install the attached ZIP file to a folder.  Run the setup.exe install program.  Follow the on-screen instructions.

ACMx control modules must be initialized with the new Operating System version in 4-mation.  To initialize an ACMx control module in 4-mation, view the online Module Tree, select the ACMx module, and select File, Transfer, Initialize Module.  Once initialized, an existing ACMx configuration may be transferred to the ACMx controller.  Please note, it may take several minutes to initialize the ACMx control modules especially on redundant systems.
