There are a variety of different programming sites available on BPM Microsystems handlers, each have different stepper motors, T-posts and power supplies.
This guide serves as a way to help identify the site technology that you have and the associated parts to aid in ordering spare parts.
Please note that all 6th and 7th generation sites, such as 3600 or 4600 are no longer supported by BPM and should be upgrade to X610 type sites.
|Site Type||Part||Part Number|
|3610/4610||T POST TALL||D02837AD|
|3610S/4610S||T POST TALL||D02837AD|
|3710/4710||T POST TALL||D02837AD|
|3710S/4710S||T POST TALL||D04652AD|
Notes: D04664AD is obsolete and now uses D05136AD. D04473AD is now obsolete and now uses D05135AD.
These are the exact same motors and shaft lengths, with the only change is the shaft material. Old type is brass, new type is stainless steel for strength.
Programming sites use T-posts that are threaded in to the stepper motors, used to open and close the sockets to allow devices to placed for programming.
There are various T Post types used and correct selection is based on the automated programming site style and the height of the socket module in use. When choosing a device to program in BPWin, there will be information to explain which socket modules can be used and the T-post required for any given socket module.
Refer to the examples shown below to further assist in choosing the correct T-post or if you need to order replacements.
Programming Site Style A (example: 4600) and Style B (example: 4610) are compatible with both D02959AD “Normal” T-post or D02837AD “Tall” T-post.
|STYLE A||STYLE B|
|D02959AD "Normal" and D02837AD "Tall" T-Posts|
NOTE: Style A, X600 type sites are obsolete and should be upgraded to X610.
Programming Site Style C (example: 4710S) is compatible with D04661AD “Normal” T-post or D04652AD “Tall” T-post.
|D04661AD "Normal" and D04652AD "Tall" T-Posts|
Programming Site Style D (example: 4800) is compatible with D04500AD “Normal” T-post only.
|Site Style||"Normal" T-post||"Tall" T-post|
Each T Post is fitted with ball plungers, which are used to unsure secure fitting of the pressure plates.
These plungers are consumable items and can wear down.
Replacement parts can be order, using the following numbers.
CAIRPLU02 is the white tip plunger
CAIRPLU03 is the red tip plunger
If you are still unsure as to which T Post you should be using with your programming site, then please either call your local support engineer or submit a support request for further information.
