Adding a new model group to an existing setup

If you have one or more models (.cal files) to add to an existing PROspect model setup (.mdb file), these are the steps to take.

  1. Copy all new models to your existing model directory.
    • If you don't know what your existing directory is, then in PROspect go to File / Load new model setup… The dialog box will open to your existing model directory by default. Make a note of this and copy your new models into this same directory.
  2. Add the new models to the Model List
    • In PROspect, first make sure the software is in CHEM mode from the Channels menu.
    • Push the Model Setup button and then choose Edit model list…
    • Push the Add model button and select one or more new models to add. Multiple models can be selected by holding down the Ctrl button.
    • Push OK to save changes to the Model List
  3. Create one or more Model Groups to organize the models. If you have just one new model, you would most likely just create one new group with the same name.
    • In the Model Select dialog, choose Edit model groups…
    • Press New group and choose a name for your group. Please don't use any special characters in the group name that might conflict with Windows file/directory naming convention. It is ok to use spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
    • Now choose Add models to group… and select one or more models
    • Once all the model names are in the group list, you can use your mouse to rearrange the model order by dragging and dropping them within the list. The model order affects the order of display on the screen as well as modbus output order.
  4. Assign your new model group to the appropriate channel.
    • In the Model Select dialog, select the appropriate channel and the set the Current model group.
    • Push OK to save your changes and close Model Select, or push Apply to save your changes and move to another channel.
