BPWin 7.0.5 Release Notes

BPWin Highlights

  • Releasing improvements to the new 3928 autohandler system.
  • Improved the user interaction with the Teach Dialog so that it can be navigated with the arrow keys immediately after opening.
  • Improved Pick and Place default settings for WhisperTeach systems.

Other Updates

  • The “identify” feature in systems that have the Ethernet downward camera (i.e. 4910, 3910, etc.) now shows the camera view on-screen.
  • A problem with the API call to set the Checksum Method where a good parameter value was reported as invalid was fixed.
  • Expanded error codes in BPWin help documentation to assist error troubleshooting. Access the information via the “BPWin Help…” (F1). See “Result Code Table” under Troubleshooting BPWin Programmer Errors.
  • Improved the availability of the “Enable 3D Vision Inspection” checkbox in the Workflow Configuration to correctly obey permissions in both default operator/supervisor and WABS security models.
  • Fixed the initialization error only observed on 3X systems with a legacy 1040 Galil controller.
  • Resolved an issue where the Empty Socket Test (EST) was resulting in false failures using select algorithms.

7.0.4 Release Notes

Highlights

  • Added a Z self-test motion diagnostic for 4x systems equipped with a Z encoder. This includes some 4900 and all 4910 autohandler systems. This diagnostic executes a sequence of tests to find possible failures and provides recommended actions. Access the Z self-test in the BPWin Motion Diagnostics accessible through the Autohandler menu: Autohandler->Pick-and-Place->Diagnostics. For example, here is a screenshot of the Motion Diagnostics Report where the Z-axis encoder is not connected to the headboard:

  • Improved use of the theta encoder during axis motion to correct failed attempts to arrive at the commanded destination. Added useful debugging log information to help operators pinpoint any hardware faults. In the case of consistent theta failures, the theta speed will decrease incrementally to keep the machine running. This enables operators to finish the current job and address any hardware failures afterward.

Other Updates

  • Added logging information to include the list of selected operations when loading Job Master (.bp) and Automated Job Master (.abp) files.
  • Upgraded the onboard 64GB eMMC memory sticks used in 8th Generation programmers. Customers with 8th Generation programmers that have memory sticks of 32GB can upgrade to this 64GB memory stick. Contact customer support for details. This is part of BPM’s commitment to supporting legacy programmer models in the field.
  • Implemented registry key for administrators to control access to the maximum laser power limit configuration. For further information contact Customer Service.

7.0.3 Release Notes

Updates

  • Corrected device placement orientation when automatically removing devices from sockets after sites are taught in sequence. This only occurred when teaching with the options “Full Teach Primary / Fast Teach Secondary”, “Full Teach Every Socket”, or “Fast Validate and Adjust”. This behavior was only present in autohandler systems that use the CyberOptics alignment sensor.
  • Resolved errors when running BPWin in APS simulation mode.
  • Corrected an undesired change in behavior when teaching automated programmer sites in sequence. The correct behavior is to iterate through them in numerical order. Behavior had changed in BPWin 7.0.1 such that the master site was taught first and then the remaining.
  • Improved debugging information given to the operator if:
    • The Z encoder test fails during APS initialization.
    • The SD cards present in the programmer site mismatch expected serial numbers.
  • Resolved a problem where a JobMaster file could not be saved when Custom37 Bad Block Management scheme was selected.
