Motor settings

AMPTS® II, AMPTS® II Light, Gas Endeavour® and BRS instruments equipped with the latest version of the embedded server has a known issue if the motor on and off mode is set to change too frequently.

AMPTS® II, AMPTS® II Light, Gas Endeavour® and BRS instruments with earlier versions of the embedded server are equipped with two alkaline AA batteries to maintain the RTC (Real Time Clock).

AMPTS® II, AMPTS® II Light, Gas Endeavour® and BRS instruments equipped with the latest version of the embedded server has a known issue if the motor on and off mode is set to change too frequently. If this issue occurs, no openings will be recorded by the instrument and it won’t be possible to access until it has been restarted.

In order to safely restart an instrument, please unplug the power adapter and wait for one minute before reconnecting.

To minimise the risk of the issue, we recommend that both the one and off values are set to at least 5 minutes (300 seconds) each or so that the motors only change state twice every ten minutes. An example of the latter would be to have an on time of two minutes and the off time of 8 minutes. The best option is to run the motors fully continuously by setting the off time to 0.

Please see screen capture as reference to the settings discussed.

The instruments that have the latest version of the embedded server and therefore may be at risk of encountering this issue have the following serial numbers:

1100-2100-1100-3000 to 1100-2100-1100-9999 (AMPTS® II)
1100-2100-5100-1100 to 1100-5100-5100-9999 (Gas Endeavour®)
1100-2100-6100-1100 to 1100-2100-6100-9999 (AMPTS® II Light)
1100-2100-7100-1100 to 1100-2100-7100-9999 (BRS)
