G4 CNC Software Update
OmniTurn continuously improves the G4 CNC operating system in response to the needs of our customers; 'bugs' are fixed and features are added. The update procedure is quick and none of your existing programs or tool offsets are affected.
NOTE: If older, fan-type motherboard is replaced with newest fanless motherboard, this software upgrade is required.
- To begin, download UPDATE.ZIP If your G4 control's USB stick has a folder named CURRENT, delete it.
- Right-click the UPDATE.ZIP file and select "Extract All". A new folder called UPDATE will be created in the same folder as UPDATE.ZIP. In the UPDATE folder is another folder called CURRENT. Copy this entire CURRENT folder to the control's USB stick.
- Boot your control with the USB stick installed.
- At the "Servos off or Ext. Halt..." prompt, press Ctrl-Q (hold the Ctrl key and press the Q key) to go to DOS prompt. (K:\CNC>)
- At the DOS prompt, type D: and Enter to log on to the USB stick.
- At the D:> prompt, type CD\CURRENT and Enter to get to the CURRENT folder.
- At the D:\CURRENT> prompt, type UPDATER and Enter to install the update.
- When the update is complete, as indicated by the return of the D:\CURRENT> prompt, reboot the control.
