TEDS Support
Manufacturer Model Enumeration File  This standard file includes the reference between the model numbers stored in the TEDS memory and Metra's actual model numbers.
TEDS-IO Ver. 1.3 Windows program for reading and editing the information stored in the TEDS memory (approx. 5 MB)
Notice:  This program requires for operation a connected USB/1-Wire® adapter DS9490R from Maxim with installed driver.
The driver can be downloaded from http://www.maximintegrated.com/en/products/ibutton/software/tmex/download_drivers.cfm
After driver installation please run "Default 1-Wire Net.exe" from the start menu and perform automatic hardware detection. Once your adapter was detected it will remain stored as standard device for the communication between TEDS-IO and the sensor.
To work with the
DS9490R adapter it may also be necessary to install Microsoft Visual J# from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18084
For connecting a TEDS sensor to the 1-Wire® adapter you will need an interface cable. Please contact us if you need support.
