① Firmware update

  1. Click Update to display the online Firmware update page.
  1. Do one of the following to select the firmware:
  • Drag-and-drop the file into the dialog box.
  • Click Browse files and select a file.
  1. Click Load.
  • The device restarts once the Firmware is loaded.

② Clear device 1)

  • Stops the device, clears it, and clears the application configuration. The loaded application remains on the device and can be activated. The device must be configured.

③ Delete application 1)

  • Stops the device, clears the application configuration, and keeps the existing device configuration. The loaded application remains on the device and can be activated. The device must be configured.

1) Additional information required for clear device and clear application commands

Clear device and Clear application can be triggered by various clients, such as ABT Site, ABT Go, Web Interface, provided the operator has the required login credentials. In addition to that, the Clear device command can also be triggered directly on the device, using a specific power cycle/reboot process. With certain families of devices, such as Desigo Control Point, additional information on loaded libraries and templates is required.

 

To all Desigo device families (Desigo room automation, PXC4/5/7, Web Interface, Desigo Control Point, AX100), the following applies:

  • Clear device resets the device to its factory settings. This command deletes all:
    • Loaded applications (control programs, data points, BACnet objects)
    • All peripherals on local field networks (such as TX I/O modules, onboard IO configurations, PL-Link/ DALI/Modbus devices)
    • All network settings
    • All loaded certificates
    • The entire control program

The currently loaded firmware remains on the device, as the factory-set firmware has been overwritten.

 

  • Clear application deletes all loaded applications. This includes:
    • Control programs
    • Data points (and other building automation objects, such as scheduler, value objects, functional SVO)
    • Local field networks (such as TX I/O modules, onboard IO configurations, PL-Link/ DALI/Modbus devices)

 

Information for Desigo Control Point only

With Desigo Control Point, the FIN-Database is reset.

  • In contrast to Clear device, the command Clear application leaves the following on the device:
    • All network settings
    • All loaded certificates
    • Entire control program

As a result, the device can still be addressed via BACnet and configured routing functions (such as MS/TP field network with PXC7) stay intact. AX100 does not support this function.
