Flashing the MECP I

There are 2 main steps of installing software on


the MECP I that will ensure the proper
functionality of the display. These steps can be
seen listed below:
1. Boot loader
2. Software Configuration

The bootloader and software configuration files


can be downloaded from SISweb.

Note: These files must be looked up by the 7 digit


part number (see below):

Bootloader – 4665520
Software (English/French) – 4540153
Software (English/German) – 4540154
Software (English/Italian) – 4540155
Software (English/Spanish) – 4540156

Boot Loader:

To force the MECP I to enter boot mode, make


sure the selector switch is in “Local” mode.
During start up, press and hold BUTTONS 1
and 6.

Once in boot mode the screen to the right will be


displayed

Once the MECP I is in boot mode start the


PowerVision field programming kit.

Set the dropdown boxes to the following


 Hardware Type: Mono Display
 Communication type: RP1210 Conduit

Next, select the load file you wish to load on the
MECP I.

Finally, click LOAD in the upper left hand corner


and wait for the software to be uploaded.

This will complete the boot loader upload.


Proceed to “Flashing the MECP I – Software
Configurations”

Software Configuration:

Unlike the boot loader, a software configuration


does not require the user to enter the “boot mode”
on the MECP I. A software configuration update
may be done from any screen.

Once the MECP I is on, start the PowerVision


field programming kit.

Set the dropdown boxes to the following


 Hardware Type: Mono Display
 Communication type: RP1210 Conduit

Next, select the load file you wish to load on the


MECP I.

Finally, click LOAD in the upper left hand corner


and wait for the software to be uploaded.

This will complete the software configuration


update. Remove the marine service harness and
reconnect the MECP I appropriately.
