On a PV+ 600 there is no option to increase the program ram allocation. How would I give my system more memory on a PV+ 600?
Good morning Paul,
Are you saying in your PanelView Plus 600 you do not have the screen in Step 5?
Without details on your exact model I really can’t provide an answer, other than to say that is the screen where the change is made.
Note that it is extremely rare to have to change these settings – this was a problem with the initial series of PVPlus that only had 32mb of memory, but later models had more.
