One of the most valuable features of P&E's Cyclone PRO and Cyclone MAX is the stand-alone mode, which allows users to program their boards without the need for a host PC.  The purpose of this post is to visually show our newest users how to quickly configure their unit for production line programming.

1. Make sure you are using the latest Cyclone PRO/MAX installation software. If you are using an older SAP Configuration utility, you should uninstall it before installing the latest version. Reboot your PC after the install is completed.

2. Open the Cyclone Image Creation Utility. Create your programming script by double clicking on the commands under the "Programming Sequence" panel or use the Launch Script Wizard. After completing the stand-alone configuration, click 'Store Image to Disk' to save the current configuration onto your hard drive as a .SAP file. Save each programming script you create as a different .SAP file.

3. Open the Cyclone Manage Images Utility.  Choose the appropriate port and click open. Press Add to bring up the Add Image to Internal Memory dialog box. Select the .SAP file that was previously saved. Repeat this until all your SAP files have been added. Then press Commit Changes. Click "Yes" on the confirmation dialog box. The images will then be loaded onto your Cyclone PRO/MAX.
