4. Click "New".
5. Input the password "16888".
6. Select "C-Power 2200" (if your led sign is featured with other C-Power card, please select accordingly); assign the ID (and name); Choose the width and height, according to your led sign spec; Choose the color according to your led sign spec; Choose the communication type "RS232/485"; Choose the port according to your control PC.
And click "OK".
7. Repeat above steps from "4" to "6" (no password is required again), till all your led signs added and assigned with the ID.

Part Two - Communicate with the led signs.

Note: You can programme all the signs ready (step 13), and "Send data" at one time, to all the led signs, or a part of the led signs.

Above tutorial is for the multi-led signs controlled by one led message centre (one Led Center M software control several led signs).
Continue on, we will introduce briefly how to setup the software LedCenterM, if you control only one led sign by the software LedCenterM. The difference in hardware part is the port - RS232 instead of RS485.
Till the step "6", you have exactly the same processes to program it. And since you have only one LED sign, you'd jump the step "7" - no necessary to add more.
And after the step "8" and "9", here there's a little difference - Don't select "Board is on RS485 network", please see below picture sample:
And then, please go on with the step "11", and program the message you want to show on the led sign.

And note: C-Power 5200, C-Power 4200, C-Power 3200, and C-Power 1200 have the same way of configuration.
