File Transmission in ROM writer:
In the case where the AMS-205/-206 or LK-1900 Series model of sewing machine is used and a ROM writer other than the PKW-1100 (Pecker-11) is used, sewing data can be input/output from/to a file (HEX file) that can be transmitted to the ROM writer. Two or more sewing patterns can be store in the HEX file. Direction to the HEX file is given with the pattern number of a sewing pattern.
When “H/D read,” “H/D write,” “F/D read,” or “F/D write” prepared in the “Sewing data” contained in the menu bar is executed, reading/writing to/from the HEX file will be performed. At this time, the file is fixed in accordance with model of sewing machine as shown below.
To read sewing data from the ROM, transmit all data held in the ROM to the personal computer in the INTELEC HEX format. The location and name of the file conform to those shown in the chart given above. Then, execute “H/D read” (or “F/D read” for floppy disk) on the PM-1 to read the sewing data. For writing, another sewing data can be additionally written in one HEX file. In this case, two and more units of sewing data are identified with pattern numbers. It should be noted that in the case where the HEX file holds another sewing pattern bearing the same pattern number, the new sewing data will replace the existing data when storing the former.
To write sewing data, transmit the aforementioned file to the ROM writer and write it on the ROM after performing the “H/D write.”
Procedure for transmitting data between the personal computer and ROM writer differs with ROM writer. It is advisable to use software supplied for the ROM writer, if any.
Machine model change & data editing:
Supported model of sewing machine and edit size prepared under the “Sewing data” can be changed. Select the “Sewing machine model” from the menu bar and execute the “Resolution and edit size” contained in the “Sewing machine model.”
The edit size is automatically established by specifying the sewing machine model and type. It is possible to input or read data that exceeds the edit size. However, the sewing machine is not able to perform sewing beyond its sewing area even if the edit size is expanded. If the edit size is excessively large, it may not be sufficiently enlarged in the “Enlarged view.” It is advisable not to specify a larger edit size unless it is really necessary.
To create sewing data for any sewing machine model that is not covered in the “Model list” in the “Sewing machine model,” properly specify the model and type of sewing machine and resolution (the resolution is uniquely determined by the model and type of sewing machine and cannot be changed) to match the edit size to the sewing area of the machine.
