ASX-1400/1600/1650 Firmware and Update Kit
A Note About Firmware Version Numbers: To maintain backwards compatibility with existing applications, the ASX‑1400/1600/1600 has maintained the same response to the VER command. However, the ASX‑1400/1600/1600 firmware has been rewritten from scratch to enhance the functionality we can offer our customers, and for this reason the actual versioning was restarted at 1.0. This also allows us to have consistent versioning across all supported platforms. The real version number (for upgrade purposes) can be found using the VERSS command. Connect to the autosampler using C-Term as described in the Operator's manual and type VERSS and press Enter to retrieve the actual firmware version. OEMs should continue to use the VER command to identify/validate the CETAC firmware.
ASX-1x00 Alignment Tool
Alignment is critical to the autosampler’s ability to operatereliably. Alignment should be performed if you suspect that shipping or rough handling may have disturbed the autosampler’s chassis, or when an autosampler component such as the Z-drive has been replaced.
ASX-1x00 Configuration Program
The ASX-1400 has a number of features that are configurable by the customer (or OEM) after the autosampler has left the factory. The configuration program allows these options to be configured.
