MW100 Firmware Upgrade Procedure
This document describes the procedure for upgrading the MW100 firmware. Please read
this document before proceeding with the upgrade.
Applicable Product
MW100 (standard only)
*Excludes special specifications (including SUFFIX codes /S1–S999 and /Z). In-factory rework is
required to upgrade these models.
Determining non-eligibility for upgrade
Please check the name plate affixed to the instrument as in the following two examples:
• TOKUCHU suffix (/Sxx)
If ”/Sxx” is included in the SUFFIX row, it is
not eligible.
TOKUCHU suffix (/Z)
If ”/Z” is included in the SUFFIX row, it is not
eligible.
Items to Prepare



MW100 main unit
CF card
The CF card must be formatted by the MW100, or formatted for the FAT16 file system.
FAT32 and other formats do not support the firmware upgrade.

Cautions




This document is intended for the free MW100 firmware upgrade.
When upgrading the firmware, you must ensure that you also have the latest versions of
all related software.
If in-factory maintenance or repair is ever required, be sure to inform the factory that the
unit has been upgraded.
This upgrade resets the IP address, range settings, and other settings to their factory
defaults. It is recommended to save your current settings to the main unit CF card in
order to easily restore them after the upgrade. Note that the IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway, host name, domain name, date, and time are not saved to the settings
file. Please write down important settings such as these prior to the upgrade.

MW100 Firmware Upgrade Procedure
Note: The "Unit number" parameter of the WE command under the release number
R3.03 or earlier has been changed to the WF command under release number R3.04
or later. Users upgraded from the R3.03 or earlier and connected to Modbus
Gateway (users using unit numbers other than 255) will have to manually re-enter
the unit numbers after loading the settings file. Note that if a program has been
created and a unit number has been set, please change the WE command to the WF
command in the unit number setting. Please see the MW100 Communication
Command Manual (IM MW100-17E) section 1.6 on Setting Commands
(Communication Related).

Deleting temporary Internet files
After performing the MW100 upgrade, you must clear the Web browser and Java Runtime
caches per the procedure below. If the caches are not cleared before proceeding, the Web
browser's pre- and post-upgrade statuses will be out of synch, resulting in possible MW100
malfunction.
Note that when the caches are cleared, it may take a few seconds to load pages when you
visit them for the first time, but on and after the second time they will be displayed as quickly
as before.
