Anyone knows if a Thyssen Flow 2 (after 2012) is reprogrammable? I see three buttons on the service board…

It is but not easy if you dont know what your doing. It is done by connecting a fly lead (same as a thyssen flite arm control pod) to the service board and needs the flash card in place and the service board in the correct mode. I have done it once with a talk through from an ex college from abdd. A fair bit involved. If its just lost its original program it can be recovered and reloaded from the flash card (normally kept in the rail end cap.

What U trying to do ?? Reprogram for different rail ? Or to change its seat position , its not a job for the amateur.

Reprogramming for the rail. I’m a skilled automation engineer. So with proper documentation it should be possible, shouldn’t it?

can be done but its a pita! really need the handset and some knowledge of what your doing? are you trying to program a new chair to an existing rail or an old chair to a new rail? and have you got the programming card? without that your screwed as you cant enter the programming mode!

programming a new seat to an existing rail is what I would like to do. Is it possible to obtain the handset and programming card?

Try the rail endcap as the sd card may be in there. You can also wire a momentery action joystick with phone wire type wire and use a pdc tool to push the wires into the small pdc socket on the service board that will work as a lead or if you can get a hold of a thyssen flight that is the same connection

ok when you say new seat? do you mean just the seat or the carriage and seat? if your just replacing the seat then no programming is needed, if you replacing the carriage? and you have the sd card the original rail program should be on it and you can restore the program to the new carriage and then fine tune it, again its not an easy job, but it can be done, I have done it but I was talked through it by abd’s tech support, I wouldn’t recommend that you try it as you could do more harm than good if you press the wrong button! where in the country are you? maybe someone could recommend someone to do the job?

There are many possible problems here, is the carriage the same? Are they on the same software version? Are they both wireless or wired UI’s you’ll need to set up CP0 and CP1 for the new lift.
Then you’ll need to program their halt positions.
This is all very easy……when you know what you are doing
I would echo fredts suggestion of getting someone who knows what they are doing to at least do this job with you, that way you at least get an explanation of what is being done.

Gonna need a bit more information as to what ur actually trying to do. There is no legit documentation available to non flow trained engineers…… nor are the sd cards
