Enterpad (standard)

The purpose of this short tutorial is to assign the “hello” text string to the Enterpad key #1 which is the first key located in the upper left hand corner.  It will provide an insight into the logical sequences required to configure the permanent memory of the Enterpad.

Pick your Operating System

Windows 10, 7, Vista, XP, 98ME

1. Plug in the Enterpad.

2. Download and install EPConfig software.

Find it here: cedeq.com/enterpad-p120/download/WinEPConfig.exe. Save the file on your computer and run it. Follow the on-screen instructions to install EPConfig.

3. Start EPConfig.

Get to the following window:

Enterpad - Configuration Software - EPConfig

Note: the default options selected in the above window appear first. Changes will be kept for further use.

4. Define options.

5. Configure the hello text.

Click the Edit button to edit the configuration file in the text box below. Type hello immediately after <001=>

The Status section shows the configuration file compilation and transfer. If no errors are detected, press shift+load on the Enterpad to continue will appear to start the transfer. If (and only if) the sentence transfer in progress does not appear right away, hold the SHIFT key down, press, then release the LOAD key.

Wait for 15 to 120 seconds while the transfer is done. After this delay, the Enterpad configuration should be completed, that is, when the key #1 is pressed, the hello string should be transmitted by the Enterpad to the computer in the same way as it would be if the letters h e l l o would be typed on a standard keyboard.

Windows 98, 95, 3.1

Clicking on the transfer icon will open a dialog box indicating the status of verification of the file. If no syntax errors are detected, the file will be compiled. If one or more errors are detected, the program will indicate the line on which the first error has been detected. To find the error, the line and not the key, must be checked.

5. Transfer the configuration to the Enterpad.

If no errors are detected, the program will ask to press on SHIFT + LOAD on the Enterpad to confirm the beginning of the transfer. The SHIFT + LOAD command is executed by pressing on SHIFT in the lower hand corner of the Enterpad P120. While holding the SHIFT key down, press, then release the LOAD key, and then release the SHIFT key.

Save the file in a DOS text format file with the .pos extension. Then, run the following command:

POS41 TheNameOfYourFileWithoutExtension 1
Replace the name of your file accordingly.

Once the program has started to run, the status of verification of the file will appear on the screen. If no syntax errors are detected, the file will be compiled. If one or more errors are detected, the program will indicate the line on which the first error has been detected. To find the error, the line and not the key, must be checked.

4. Transfer the configuration to the Enterpad.

If no errors are detected, the program will ask to press on SHIFT + LOAD on the Enterpad to confirm the beginning of the transfer. The SHIFT + LOAD command is executed by pressing on SHIFT in the lower hand corner of the Enterpad P120. While holding the SHIFT key down, press, then release the LOAD key, and then release the SHIFT key.
