NI Series (X101) Duet v.4 Master Firmware v4.1.419

Last Updated: Sep 01, 2018

NI-3101-SIG

Prerequisites
Requires NI Device firmware (device 5001) version v1.30.8 or higher.

Programming Instructions
Prior to upgrading from firmware versions earlier than 4.1.372 it is strongly recommended that you take the following precautions to prevent potential permanent flash corruption during the upgrade process:

  1. Disable the NetLinx program execution via Dipswitch 1 (ON) or load on empty NetLinx program
  2. Ensure Dipswitch 3 is OFF
  3. Disconnect any device from the program port
  4. Reboot the master

While the KIT file is downloading do not interact with the master via Telnet or the Web interface.

After the firmware transfer completes it will take several seconds before the unit reboots.

DO NOT power cycle the NI-3101 until the reboot is complete and devices come back online.

When upgrading to 4.x.x firmware from pre-4.x.x firmware for the first time, the upgrade process and subsequent reboot can take considerably longer than usual.

Firmware should be loaded in the following order:

There is no change to the NI Device firmware (device 5001), but if upgrading this firmware:

  1. Load SW2105_NI_X101_Device_v1_30_8.kit to the integrated device (normally 5001) via NetLinx Studio
    The master must be rebooted following the installation of the integrated device firmware.
  2. Load SW2105-08_Master_v4_1_419.kit (or higher) to device 0 via NetLinx Studio and reboot the master.

RMS Transporter Update Manager Support
This version includes support for the RMS Transporter Update Manager. The NI must be running device firmware (device 5001) version v1.30.8 or higher. However, there is no RMS Transporter Update Manager Support to upgrade the device firmware. This will have to be done using Netlinx Studio.

Known Issues 

  • The DHCP lease information displayed via Telnet/Terminal "get ip" does not reflect the actual time the lease was acquired nor when it will be renewed/released.
  • If a Duet module, while loading during boot time, produces a Telnet error message: "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/xmlpull/v1/XmlPullParserFactory" you should update the Duet Module to the latest version.
  • Must use iWeather v1.1.6 or higher to operate correctly on 4.x.x firmware.
  • IE security does not allow G4WebControl to install by default and IE8 64-bit is not supported.
