Excellent question. A few ideas pop in my head but I’m also wondering what your bigger goal is (since there are usually multiple ways to do things with Opto 22 hardware & software, as you may be figuring out first-hand).
Our microSD card support has some built-in functions that let you load files like firmware, or of more interest to you, the .cdf you mentioned. So if it were me tasked with this, based on what I know now, I would do this:
[INDENT]1) Load the .cdf file via ftp to the R1’s microSD card’s strategy folder. The path would look something like this: ftp://10.0.0.39/sdcard0/STRATEGY/STRATEGY.CDF [note the 8.3 filename]
2) Restart the R1 so it looks for that file on bootup
[INDENT]1) The SNAP PAC R Series User’s guide, form 1595, see bottom of p. 62 on “Updating, Running, or Testing a Strategy”
2) MMP toolkit for Linux
3) Form 1465, the MMP Protocol Guide, see “Status Area Write” section p.127. (You’ll write a 5 to address F038 0000 to reboot your R1.)[/INDENT]
I hope that helps/makes sense. Do share more of your bigger goal/intent which may yield more suggestions or options for you.
