The V-2000 photometer makes use of internally stored calibration software, which CHEMetrics periodically upgrades. As calibrations are updated or new methods become available, a simple upload procedure allows analysts to upgrade their V-2000 calibrations from their computers. The step-by-step procedure is listed below and in Chapter 5, section 5-3 of the V-2000 Operator’s Manual.
Current Method Version:
The link below will upload the most current method version, Method Revision 19.0, which became available on September 3, 2019. This method version impacts the products listed below.
Note: New V-2000s purchased with Method Rev. 19.0 or higher DO NOT include programs for products listed below as “discontinued.” Performing the “Procedure for Method Update” on older V-2000s (with Method Revisions lower than 19.0) will update all programs, but will not remove programs for the products listed below as “discontinued.”
|Parameter||Catalog No.||Program Code||Range ppm||Description of Change|
|Program removed (discontinued product)|
To determine which method revision is currently present on your V-2000 instrument, simply turn the instrument on. As the instrument powers up, the method revision number is displayed briefly.
Equipment You Will Need to Upgrade your V-2000:
Connecting a computer to the V-2000 requires the use of the RS-232 serial cable supplied with the V-2000. This cable has a special 3-pin connector on one end for the V-2000. The RS-232 port is on the underside of the instrument. When connecting the RS-232 cable to a computer, a serial connector may be required (a 25 pin to 9 pin adapter is included with the V-2000). If your computer does not have a serial port, you will need to purchase a separate adapter that will allow you to connect the V-2000 RS-232 serial cable to the USB port on your computer. Part number for USB to serial adapter: A-0307.
Procedure for Method Revision Update:
It is recommended that you print this page of instructions before continuing.
The step-by-step procedure is also listed in the V-2000 Operator’s Manual, Chapter 5 section 5-3 Uploading Method Revisions.
NOTE: Uploading a new method revision does not overwrite any user generated custom methods or discontinued methods.
When the program is complete, the V-2000 will briefly display “ALL DONE” along with the new method revision number.
