Automating the EPL startup procedure

Here is an example of how you can write a program to have the ACR9030/9040 automatically start the EPL network on powerup.


PROGRAM
PBOOT
...

PERIOD 0.001 : REM for Compax3EPL, PERIOD *must* be set to 0.001

INH 16648 : REM wait until EPL card is ready
EPLC ON : REM Turns on EPL Network. Same as SET 16640

REM loop until Network Start either failed or successful
WHILE NOT(BIT 16650 OR BIT 16649)
WEND

IF(BIT 16650) : REM Network start failed
GOTO NoEPL
END IF

REM Network is now operational.

[code]
...

_NoEPL
PRINT "EPL Network failed to start"
'[diagnostic stuff]
ENDP
