How to use the download device kit (Windows 2000/XP Edition)
Thank you for purchasing the Aggressive Drive Effector “TAO”. We at Keyence have
substantially expanded on the originally scheduled functions (as mentioned in the
TACHYON instruction manual) so that you can enjoy an even larger variety of settings
without concerning about a category/course layout. Due to this expansion, you may
not be able to control all functions of this product using your current “TACHYON”.
By downloading this “download device kit” software, you will not only improve
compatibility with the “TAO” but you will update the TACHYON to the latest version.
Before using the “TAO”, ensure you observe the following steps to download the
TACHYON. Once you have completed downloading the latest software, all setting
changes, and so on, are conducted via this product, and you will not require the use
of a PC.
In addition, in regards to the version update, ensure you are compliant with all of
the items described below.
