APC400 and AC160 Add-ons for CBA 1.4
We are upgrading from 1.2/1 (FCB 6.2/1) to 1.4 (FCB 6.4).
The customer's controllers are running the following add-ons that do not come with the standard CBA media:
AC160 PM66x 2.2:
DI65x for ProtSyst 2.2
AC450 with SW QC07-BAS41*2.0:
The customer only has the AC160 2.2 media which contains the TED/PED files for DI65x for ProtSyst 2.2. For all the other add-ons we do not have these files.
We tried searching in all the local drives in the CBA 1.2/1 station but could not find the TED/PED files.
Searching in the ABB Library we found document 2VAA002975R0140 (not sure if it's ok to attach ABB documents) referencing media 1KHZ303508 that seem to contain the add-ons.
I tried emailing firstname.lastname@example.org but have not received a response.
My question is: Is 1KHZ303508 the media that we need in order to upgrade our customer's project with the abovementioned add-ons? Otherwise, how can we add them to the new FCB 6.4?
Its a PITA but it is possible to re-create the .TED and .PED files yourself from scratch.
First, in a working 6.2/1 version of FCB, create DB and PC element examples that contain all possible options. Then save/print/edit the source code for these.
Now look in the existing .TED and .PED files for the syntax used. You should be able to figure it out - it's just a text file and its reasonably understandable. You can basically copy / paste and tweak the source code from your examples into the format required by your .TED / .PED files.
Compile and install your "new" add-ons to FCB 6.4.
