Type D:\Setup.exe (substitute the appropriate letter of your CD-ROM drive for D) and click OK. TIP You may also click Browse to find the Setup.exe file located on the CD. 5. Follow the instructions on the screen. IMPORTANT During the installation process, you are prompted to choose a directory into which the new database is installed. We suggest that you choose the default directory. If you select a different directory than the default directory, the IntelliCENTER software needs to be reconfigured to the new directory. To do this, in IntelliCENTER software from the Edit menu, choose Preferences and click the File Locations tab. All additional IntelliCENTER software data disks must be installed in the same directory. 12 IntelliCENTER Software Install Additional Data Disks Follow these steps to install data disks other than the initial disk that was installed with the IntelliCENTER software. 1. Insert the IntelliCENTER software data disk into the CD-ROM drive. The Merge Data dialog box appears automatically and the Select New Database box is populated with the path D:\Order\Item\Access\ic.mdb. This is the location of the database on the CD-ROM drive of your computer. If there is more than one MCC lineup on the new data disk, the New Database Lineup Names pull-down menu lets you choose which lineup is merged into the existing database on the computer. 2. Select the MCC lineup that is to be merged. IMPORTANT If more than one lineup is to be merged from the data disk, each lineup has to be merged individually until all lineups have been merged into the existing database. 3. Click Add as a new lineup or Add to an existing lineup. Choose Add to an existing lineup when adding replacement units or new sections to a lineup that already exists within the database. Otherwise, choose Add as a new lineup to have the lineup merge in as a new lineup, separate from the other lineups in your database. 4. Click OK to merge the databases together. The database is checked for errors. If there are errors, the database is not merged. If there are no errors, the new database is merged with the existing database; this may take a few minutes. There is a confirmation that the databases were merged successfully. If there is more than one lineup on the new data disk, a dialog box appears, asking if you are done merging. If you are not, repeat the steps for additional lineups until you are done merging all the lineups. IntelliCENTER Software 13 IMPORTANT If you are merging a replacement or new unit into an existing lineup, make sure the location of the new units is empty in the existing database. If necessary, open the Spreadsheet View and delete or move the unit currently residing where the new unit is to be placed. Electronic Data Sheets Electronic data sheet (EDS) files are simple text files used by network configuration tools, such as RSNetWorx software, and by IntelliCENTER software to help identify products and easily commission them on a network. EDS files describe a product s device type, product revision, and configurable parameters on a network. EDS files must be registered for each unique device in the MCC. All required EDS files are installed automatically and registered when the IntelliCENTER software data disk is installed. However, there may be an instance where an EDS file needs to be installed and registered manually. To do this, follow the steps under Manually Install EDS Files. Manually Install EDS Files The EDS files are installed with a program from Rockwell Software. To install the EDS files, choose Programs Rockwell Software RSLinx Tools EDS Hardware Installation Tool. 1. Click Add. 2. Select Register an EDS File and click Next. 3. Choose Register a Directory of EDS Files. The IntelliCENTER software data disk supplied with your IntelliCENTER MCC contains a directory ( CDROM :\ Order \ Item \EDS) of all EDS files necessary for the devices in your IntelliCENTER MCC. 4. Browse to the EDS directory on the data CD and click Next. The Installer displays the test results. 5. Click Next to continue. The Installer lets you change the graphic image for each device. 6. Click Next to continue. The Installer displays the final task summary. 7. Click Next to continue. 8. Click Finish when completed. EDS Files for Other Devices EDS files also can be obtained at 14 IntelliCENTER Software Configure RSLinx Software Drivers During the installation of the IntelliCENTER software program disk, RSLinx Classic Lite software was installed (unless RSLinx software was installed on the personal computer prior to installation of the IntelliCENTER software). RSLinx Classic software is the communication platform between the IntelliCENTER hardware and software. TIP If IntelliCENTER software data disks or EDS files were recently installed, then restart the computer before browsing the associated network in RSLinx Classic software. This is because certain EDS files require a restart of the computer before RSLinx Classic software is able to identify the device in the RSWho. If the devices do not appear in the RSWho, then IntelliCENTER software is not able to monitor the device. Follow these steps to configure the RSLinx software drivers needed on your computer. 1. From the Start menu, choose Programs Rockwell Software RSLinx RSLinx Classic. TIP If RSLinx Classic software does not start, then start the application from the RSLinx Classic Launch Control Panel. From the Start Menu, choose Programs Rockwell Software RSLinx RSLinx Classic Launch Control Panel. Clear the Always Run as Service checkbox, and click Start. 2. In RSLinx Classic software, from the Communications menu, choose Configure Drivers. 3. From the Available Driver Types pull-down menu, choose the most appropriate driver for your communication platform. More than one driver can be configured. IMPORTANT IntelliCENTER software version and later does not communicate with PowerFlex 753/755 drives via the 20-COMM-D option card. The 20-COMM-D option card is not a supported option for the PowerFlex 753/755 drives. Use the DNET option card to communicate with the PowerFlex 753/755 drives over the DeviceNet network. 4. Complete the information in the Driver Configuration dialog box that is displayed. TIP The Driver Configuration dialog box varies depending on which driver you select. After successfully adding the new driver, the network must be browsed. 5. From the Communications pull-down menu, choose RSWho. 6. Select the driver and browse to the appropriate networks that IntelliCENTER software is communicating with. 7. Allow all nodes on a network to be browsed. 8. If you have multiple networks, browse each network that IntelliCENTER software monitors. IMPORTANT If a device is not first browsed in RSLinx Classic software, the IntelliCENTER software cannot communicate to that device and IntelliCENTER software shows the device to be in communication loss. Once a network has been fully browsed in RSLinx Classic software, it does not need to be re-browsed until the network is modified. This browse must happen in RSLinx Classic software; it is not sufficient to browse the network in IntelliCENTER software's Select Network Path dialog box. IntelliCENTER Software 15 Start the IntelliCENTER Software After the IntelliCENTER software program disk and data disk have been installed and the RSLinx software driver has been configured, the IntelliCENTER software is ready for use. IMPORTANT IntelliCENTER software version and later does not communicate with PowerFlex 753/755 drives via the 20-COMM-D option card. The 20-COMM-D option card is not a supported option for the PowerFlex 753/755 drives. Use the DNET option card to communicate with the PowerFlex 753/755 drives over the DeviceNet network. 1. From the Start menu, choose Programs IntelliCENTER IntelliCENTER. TIP You could also double-click the IntelliCENTER software icon on your Windows desktop to start the IntelliCENTER software. IMPORTANT When you start the IntelliCENTER software for the first time, a welcome screen appears and asks you to set the administrator s password. Type the password in the New Password and Confirm Password fields, and then click OK. Security should be established for all users prior to operation of the software. 2. Click Open. 3. In the Select the Lineup Name dialog box that appears, select the appropriate IntelliCENTER MCC lineup to be viewed and click Next. If the lineup selected is an IntelliCENTER Energy MCC, then you can enter the URL where the associated FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix server is located. This enables the software to display IntelliCENTER Energy views for the devices within the MCC. For more information about IntelliCENTER Energy see IntelliCENTER
