This document applies only to the original PDM versions of the 25-Seven Program Delay Manager (PDM). If you are looking for instructions to download logs from a PDM II, please click here.

PDM and PDM II look almost identical from the front. The only difference is the label identifying it as a PDM or a PDM II.


The customer asks, "where are the logs are located on the PDM, and how do I download them?"

Downloading the logs

To download the logs from your PDM, you will need to know the IP Address of your unit and the password.

The password can be seen and changed from the front panel of the PDM by navigating to the System and the Password menu.

The user name is always: pdmweb
The default password is: pdmwebBxxx, where xxx is the module ID of your unit. For example, if the Module ID were B649 then the default password (from the factory) would be "pdmwebB649"

A hidden web page downloads the logs. To that end, your PDM must connect to a network where you can access it by a Web browser. We are assuming that your unit is already connected to a network, so we will not cover those steps here.

  1. Enter your user name and password.
  2. You will be prompted to download and save a file that ends in .bin. Save this file somewhere on your computer.
The name of the file will be PDMNAME-DATE_Log.bin
  1. Proceed as instructed with the downloaded file.

If you are attempting to email this file, your email system or the receiver email system may not like the .bin extension. We suggest that you rename the extension to something other than .bin before sending it. Rename it to anything that is not "executable," like .bi_ or .b_n.
