Gen3 - Software - Commission Spare Display

A spare display must be updated with the model specific configuration files before it can be used with an existing Gen3-LMS system.

If the existing display is available swap over the SD card from the spare display. This will ensure that the sensor calibrations and other logs files are transferred to the new spare display.
Installing the SD card from old display is not all that is required to commission the spare display. The remaining instructions must be followed in order to correctly commission the spare display.

The Gen3 configuration software will be used to update the configuration files on the spare display.
