2. Mode and configuration of control unit and chamber

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
Enter the control unit IP(LP) in the browser to log in (User name: neware, Password: xinwei)
Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
Click “Autoline configure”, choose project type mode, “M2WX64”.
Input the IP and port of the chamber into “auto machine 1 IP”
To be noted: There is a white striker which demonstrate the IP and port of the chamber.

3. BTS client and BTS server configuration

1. Server IP and machine IP configuration

Click “Net confirgure”

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
The server IP is the control computer IP.
Generally , the default SP of the control unit of Neware battery testing system is
192.168.1.250.
Then, the TCP/IP V4 of the Ethernet of the controlled computer is 192.168.1.250 too.
So, the server ip is 192.168.1.250 in this case.

2. Adding virtual aux channel

Click “XWJ virtual”

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
Generally, we use aux channel to check temperature. We can build virtual aux channels if
we don’t have real aux channel. The chamber has loop control for temperature. So, the
chamber can check and feedback the temperature to its controller so as to control the
chamber temperature correctly. The virtual aux channel will help the main channel to know
the chamber temperature. Each testes has its device ID. For all-in-one chamber with 160
channels. The default device ID is from 1-20. We set up 30 as the device ID of the virtual
aux channel, aka, XWJ No. XWJ type should be Aux XWJ. Keep the rest parameter as
default setting. After that, click “submit”.\

3. After configuration, making the control unit memorized the virtual XWJ we add. Click “reboot machine”, user name: neware; password: xinwei ; Then, click “restart” (The restarts usually takes 1-2 minutes)

4. After restart, we input the LP in browser and login again.

Check “XWJ information”, there is a XWJ_No, 30, which we added in the last step.
It means the control unit of the battery tester has connected to the chamber successfully

5. Mapping the virtual aux machine in BTS client

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
In BTS client interface, click “reset mapping”
If you don’t map the main channel, you need to map the main channel at first.
Right mouse click the sheet, Main channel mapping, 1*8.
After mapping the main channel, right mouse click the sheet, aux channel mapping,
average mapping.
After mapping the aux channel, right mouse click the sheet and choose “save mapping”.

8. Use BTS client software to control the chamber temperature.

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber

8.1 Click “control” step, control type: temperature control, temperature control “ any values in the temperature control range of the chamber”

8.2 How to use “real-time chamber temperature” as condition to trigger the test?

Linkage Control of Neware Battery Cyclers and Neware Chamber
In step,there is a control step which control the temperature of the chamber.

Please check the “other” in the sheet.

Click “other” of each step, you can build some individual parameters for this step. Click “IF” < parameters: chamber temperature; Comparator: >,< or =; Comparative value: temperature value(0~60), default unit, ℃. Go to: Finished, protected, Stop, next step; >
