The DIMM module in the Power Mate i is either a memory or DRAM
The memory module is installed on the DIMM connector on the base
printed–circuit board. To dismount the memory module, it is necessary
to remove the axis control card in advance by following the dismounting
procedure described in Section 2.6.2.
The DRAM module is installed on the DIMM connector on the CPU card.
To dismount the DRAM module, it is necessary to remove the CPU card
in advance by following the dismounting procedure described in Section
1 To remove the axis control card and CPU card, it is
necessary to remove the base printed–circuit board in
advance by following the dismounting procedure described
in Section 2.6.1. Carefully observe the CAUTION described
in Section 2.6.1.
2 The memory module contains a battery–backed SRAM. An
attempt to dismount and mount the memory module causes
the content of the SRAM to be lost. Do not forget to make
a back–up copy of the latest SRAM data into a memory card
or Handy File before dismounting the memory module. It is
recommended that the SRAM data also be backed up into
the built–in FROM of the Power Mate. (See Appendix E or
3 Replacing the memory module with the battery voltage
applied to it may damage the memory module and battery.
If you want to dismount and mount the memory module, be
sure to remove the battery before attempting to dismount
the base printed–circuit board.
4 The FROM on the memory module contains many types of
system software. (See Section 2.2.5.) When replacing the
memory module, make sure that the functions stored in the
FROM are of the same version as before the replacement
or of a later version. Otherwise, some of the functions may
