Upgrading battery cycler software without interfering the tests

One may encounter the problem that battery cycler software upgrade is needed but there are still tests ongoing on the channels of the battery cyclers. Actually the software could be upgraded without losing the settings. After the upgrade, the ongoing tests can be resumed. You don’t need to restart the battery cyclers or the computer.

  1. Download the latest software for the battery cycler
  2. Pause all the ongoing tests
  3. Turn off the LandMon software
  4. Click “Setup” to install the latest software for the battery test system, use the same directory as the old installation (normally C:\Land\). The new installation will overlap some of the old programs, such as LandMon, LandCali, etc.
  5. After successful installation, start the LandMon program.
  6. Resume all the tests one by one. All the  tests should resume with the setting scheduled before the upgrade.
