Guidelines for ConSoft version or higher.

Before making a configuration of MinIPAQ-HLP you need to do


1. Install the drivers for the INOR USB Interface.

2. Install the PC configuration software ConSoft in your PC.

3. Install the PC configuration software MinIPAQ Soft, version 1.24.00 or

higher, in your PC.

Please refer to “Installation Guide for ICON”, 86BCONF004, for

detailed installation instructions. All software and guides are included in the

web site

Configuration procedure:

The help files in ConSoft and MinIPAQ Soft contains complete information

about the configuration procedure. Here is a short-form guide:

1. Connect the MinIPAQ-HLP to the PC via the USB Interface.

Configuration can be performed with or without connected power


2. In ConSoft, click on the upper left “Read from transmitter” button.

The software will automatically recognize the connected transmitter

and open the MinIPAQ Soft program. The MinIPAQ Soft program

will automatically find the correct communication port (first time

MinIPAQ Soft is used it will open the Com port selection window).

3. In the configuration window you can set the following parameters:

a. Input (RTD or Thermocouple type)

b. 3- or 4-wire connection (for RTD input)

c. Activation of Cold Junction Compensation (for T/C input)

d. Measuring range in three different engineering units

e. Upscale or downscale action at sensor break or short-circuit

f. Compensation for known sensor errors

g. Activation of a Low pass filter

4. The selected configuration is downloaded to the transmitter by clicking

the button “Transfer to transmitter”. If the transmitter is in operation

during transmission from the PC, the transmitter output is frozen.

When the transfer is complete, the transmitter begins using the new

parameters directly.
