AC-825IP control panel bootloader version 2.0 support for AxTraxNG version

This Technical Note only apply to AxTraxNG version


Recently Rosslare has upgraded AC-825IP control panel bootloader to version 2.0 to provide better functionality and prepare it for upcoming firmware upgrades. That was a necessary step to deliver an improved product to our customers, following this update all panels loaded with the bootloader version 2.0 will be supported by AxTraxNG version and above.

Rosslare understands that a backward compatibility is required as there are many panels installed on the field, therefore we’ve prepared a patch file to enable AxTraxNG version support of the new bootloader. AxTraxNG version (and above) is the version that is strictly recommended for installation when using AC-825IP panels.
