Serious Programming Adapters

Some cost-reduced variants (models) of SIMs and SCMs do not have the USB device port exposed to a normal USB device connector. If your particular selected product does not have this connector, you may need a SPA

Generation 5 products (SIMx52, SIMx62, SCM318) do not require a SPA.

A Serious Integrated HMI Module (SIM) or Serious Comms/Control Module (SCM) are all updated and managed through their communications ports, often the USB device port on most of these units.

  • SHIPTide can upgrade GUIs and SHIPEngine firmware on SIMs
  • SHIPCrane is designed for the production environment for updating files, firmware, and GUIS osn SIMs and SCMs

NOTE: SPAs are not designed for use directly inside production products.
