Changing a DATAssure™ Micro SD Card
DATAssure™ Micro SD card
Only an approved Micro SD card from the system supplier should be used with DATAssure™ variant base stations. Contact your system supplier to purchase a replacement Micro SD card.
To add or remove an SD card, the DATAssure™ must be removed from its wall mounting plate (refer to the system instruction manual). Ensure the system is powered down at both the unit and the plug socket before removing from the mounting plate.
Opening The Micro SD Card Holder
The cardholder is located on the rear of the DATAssure™, to open the holder; carefully slide the cardholder's metal cover back (see image 1).
Once slid back the metal holder can be tilted backwards on its hinge, ensure the holder is not forced as this may cause damage (see image 2).
Seating The Micro SD Card
When putting a Micro SD card back in the holder, it’s extremely important to ensure the card is correctly seated (see image 3). The metal holder cover should not need to be forced closed.
Securely Fixing The Micro SD Card in Place
Once the Micro SD card is correctly seated, with the metal holding cover closed, carefully pull the cover forward to secure into position (see image 4).
Power Up the DATAssure™ and Test The Card Function
Once the Micro SD card is secured, re-attach the power cable to the DATAssure™, re-mount on its bracket then switch the power on.
Once power has been restored login to the DATAssure™ via the network interface and navigate to the Settings tab, run a manual system backup, follow the path;
Settings => Administrator => Maintenance => Start Back Up – Yes => Enter log in password => Submit
A backup will commence. The time taken to complete the backup will depend on the time and data volume recorded, since the last successful backup.
Backup progress can be viewed on the Info tab, the screen data will need manually refreshed periodically until the backup shows either ‘Success or Fail’.
If the backup fails, power down the DATAssure™ and re-seat the Micro SD card before trying to re-run.
If the backup continues to fail, contact your system supplier for support.
