We recently bought the PTC-04 and the PTC-04-DB-SPI2 to program a MLX90363. But It is not possible for me to communicate with a MLX90363 (TSSOP-16).
I have already installed the MPT program (from the delivered CD) and can make connection with the PTC-04. Also the DB is found by the program but I can’t find a UI module for the MLX90363. Do I miss something? Or is there something that I do wrong?
Hello @michiel.samyn, I have not used the Melexis tools so am not sure how the PTC-04-DB-SPI interface works. The only thing I have found on Melexis’ website is https://www.melexis.com/en/tech-info/programming-and-software-tools/ptc04 . From reviewing the documentation it seems like there should be firmware for the MLX90363 you can upload. I will check with our Product Manager to see if we can get any more information on the user interface.
Hello @michiel.samyn, In the CD you received with the PTC-04 can you find a directory “MLX90363” under PTC_04 ? In this directory there is PSF and UI firmware you will need to upload into the PTC-04.
Thank you for the information. I uploaded the firmware and installed the PSF but there is no UI module for this sensor. Did the test with other types and this works.
All I find is an excel under the folder application. But how does it work?
Do you also have a file called “FIR090363AAMLX.hex” in the “UI 90363ABMLX” directory? I think you also need to upload this file.
I received some more details about installing the MLX User Interface programs and was able to install myself (I don’t have the actual hardware but have the UI working on MPT. I followed instructions on page 6 of the “Installation Guide PTC04” (in PTC-04 documentation folder).
I have checked the CD but the UI_090363AAMLX.exe file is not on there. Do I have an older version of CD?
Is it possible to send me the exe?
Thank you in advance.
If you don’t have the .exe you will need to request access to Softdist (Melexis SoftDist - Login Page) so you can download the files, see info at https://www.melexis.com/en/softdist . I cannot send the files, you will need to contact https://www.melexis.com/en/contact/sales-contact to request access. Make sure to reference you need access to the PTC-04 and MLX90363 files and that you have purchased the PTC-04 and PTC-04-DB-SPI hardware. I also have some information provided by Melexis I can email you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply with the information.
