2.3. Unplug the cables

Lift the IPC to gain access to the cables connected to the IPC.Unplug all cables so that you remove the IPC.On some installations, the connectors are located inline and can thus be hidden inside the IPC post.


The cables have to be reconnected to the new IPC.Pay attention witch cables you detach and where exactly they were attached.It might be useful to labels the cables and write down where they should be connected.

Slide the CFast card into the empty slot of the new IPC.Make sure the CFast is seated correctly in the slot, then close the securing lid.

2.6. Install the new IPC in the front plate

The new IPC should be mounted in the same way as the old IPC you just removed.

2.7. Plug in all cables

Reconnect all cables exactly in the same way as you removed them.It is important the connect the cables in the correct ports for the system to function correctly.


Be sure to plug the Ethernet cable back into exactly the same ports.When there is only one ethernet cable, this should normally have been installed in the port labeled 'ETH1'.

2.8. Reinstall the IPC housing

Carefully put the IPC back into the panel.Mount the cover using the screws you removed earlier.Install the IPC and the panel in the housing with the same screws you removed.

2.9. Turn on the system

Turn on the system, the IPC should boot into the Windows environment.Check if all functions are working properly.
