There is a way to do a factory reset ?

There is a known method to execute a factory reset on an iQan master controller ?

To be more specific, I'm looking to do this on a MC31 master.

This is to be sure there is nothing leaved on the master memory/configuration for testing purpose.



I would send a new empty application with a new project-ID

it's exactly what we have tried, but only to be sure I prefered to ask in case there is another way to do this.



The trick of sending an empty project file is the closest you can get to a "factory reset" without sending in the module for repair.

It does not restore it completely, on the status LED you will see an OK blink instead of the "no application available"

It will have the vmAC version from the IQANdesign you used when creating the blank file, this may or may not be the vmAC the module was shipped with

The Machine ID is not reset by sending a project file. If it matters for your test, you could of coures manually change it to the default value which is "Unknown"
