NTAS/SPURS2 MET LOGR53 Commands - Firmware Ver 4.3x with internal SBD support

See LOGR53 with CFLASH OPERATIONS document for instructions on how to hook up the comms link to your PC.
Refer to Latest Version Information for reference info on latest firmware version numbers.

MET Logger always comes up running and logging in fixed configuration - see 'default' config below.

CFLASH NOTE 1 - Firmware Ver 4.xx has been tested using SanDisk CompactFLASH cards (256 MB and 64 MB) with SanDisk CompactFLASH PC Card (PCMCIA) Adapters on WHOI VMLOGR53 Rev D CPU boards.

CFLASH NOTE 2 - CompactFLASH cards MUST be formatted using the I command choice in the FOK command menu. CompactFLASH cards may be read on a PC and will contain 2 files: a .INF user-defined Info file, and a .DAT Data file. Processing of the new .DAT file is identical to processing the data files from older PCMCIA-based loggers, since the data file record format is unchanged.

NOTE for loggers with ATTACHED REMOTE COMMUNICATION CAPABILITY: ALWAYS verify that the Comms system is operating correctly before final deployment. For the first 60 minutes after powerup, the logger can be STOPped by an incorrectly programmed Comms system. After the first 60 minutes, and IF Comms system power is controlled by the logger, no STOP command will be accepted by the logger while Comms system power is ON. This offers some protection from accidently disabling the logger remotely. Of course, if Comms system power is independent of logger control, be very careful!

NOTE for loggers with INTERNAL IRIDIUM SBD CAPABILITY: Firmware supports hourly messages of ASIMET MET data via an NAL Research 9602N Iridium modem attached to P21 on the LOGR53IF board. See Iridium SBD message Format for internal Iridium SBD message format.

ASIMET Module port assignments

(Port 1 thru Port 11 correspond to LOGRIF PC Board P1 thru P11)
