Upgrading LP Controller Firmware through the Configuration Manager

Updated 5 months ago by Marty

This article only applies to LP Controllers(Red Controllers) only. Click here for upgrading firmware on EP controllers and downstream boards through PremiSys.
Your LP controller firmware must be version 1.27.6 in order to use the diagnostics on the controller to upgrade the firmware. If your firmware is older than 1.27.6 you must use PremiSys to upgrade the firmware.

1.)    If you have a user account set up on the controller, continue to step 3.

2.)    If you do not have an account set up on the controller, you will have to go to the controller's physical location and turn Dip Switch 1 to the ON position. You have 5 minutes to log in to the browser interface after moving DIP Switch 1 to the ON position.

Note: If you set up a user account, you will not have to turn on DIP Switch 1 every time you want to access the controller. This will allow you to upgrade firmware remotely or access the controller configuration remotely, after a user account has been set up on the controller.

3.)    Log in to your controller’s IP address through a web-browser.

4.)    Default Username = Admin; Default Password = password

5.)    Click the Device Info link on the left-hand side. Look for Firmware Revision: this will show the current firmware loaded on the controller.

6.)    Click the Diagnostic Link on the left-hand side.

7.)    Click Choose file to browse to your firmware file. It will show the firmware file you selected.

 

8.)    Click load file to begin the firmware upgrade process. This will show the status of loading file. The status then goes to Installing. 

 

Note: This process takes about 2 to 3 minutes to load the firmware. This is a much faster alternative compared to the 10 to 15 minutes when loading firmware through the software interface.

9.)    When the file is completed, you will see a box when you loaded the file goes to a not responding state.

 

10.)   The firmware is now loaded.  Log into the controller again and click the Device Info button and make sure it has the correct firmware version you just loaded.
