2.3 GUI Installation
1.Install the ZonePRO GUI software onto your computer from either the dbx website at
www.dbxpro.com or from the included CD ROM.
e highly recommend disabling virus protection software during the installation
W
of ZonePRO Designer.
2.The application will proceed to prompt you for the installation location.
3.Once the software installation has been completed, it is recommended that you restart
your computer.
2.4 Quick Start – Connecting via RS-232
In order to program the ZonePRO processors, the ZonePRO Designer GUI must be in
communication with the ZonePRO device (this is referred to as “Online”). Once communication
is established, the ZonePRO processor can be programmed in real-time, or if a program has
already been created, it can be loaded into the device.
If your computer does not have a built in RS-232 port you must use a compatible RS-232
peripheral, such as an RS-232 PCI card, RS-232 PCMCIA card, or USB to Serial adapter. Please
visit the FAQs section of the dbx website for the latest information on compatible RS-232
peripherals.
Most ZonePRO models also allow you to communicate via Ethernet, the exception being the
640 and 641 models, which do not have an Ethernet control port. If you are connecting via
Ethernet and require assistance, please see “Section 6 - Networking”.
It is highly recommended that ZonePRO installers do have the means to communicate
with the ZonePRO processors via RS-232. If a firmware update is ever required, the firmware
update must be applied using the RS-232 connection!

5. ZC Input Ports
Allows connection of up to 12 ZC controllers (six per port) for control of volume, source
selection, page steering, and scene changes. The top ZC Input port is for IDs 1-6 and
the bottom ZC Input port is for IDs 7-12.
6. Analog Outputs
Balanced audio output connections. Connect these outputs to your amplifier input
channels.
7. Link Input/Output Ports
Allows duplication of up to six input channels (ML1, ML2, S1, S2, S3, S4) to another
ZonePRO device in applications where additional output zones are required.
All models – with the exception of the 640m and 641m – allow duplication of
up to six channels: ML1, ML2, S1, S2, S3, S4. The 640m and 641m models allow
duplication of up to four channels: ML1, ML2, S1, S2.
8. RCA Source Inputs
Mono-summed pairs of unbalanced RCA audio inputs.
Each pair of unbalanced RCA inputs are
internally mono summed. This is beneficial when
your application requires mono zones. However,
when stereo zones are required and stereo imaging
is to be maintained, each stereo source must occupy
two pairs of inputs (omitting one jack per pair).

The included Ethernet crossover cable cannot be used to connect ZCs to the ZonePRO!
All Zone Controllers can be wired serially or in parallel. Whether using serial or parallel
cabling, each Zone Controller must have a unique identification number chosen using the DIP
switches on the side of the controller (see Diagram A), although there may be multiple Zone
Controllers controlling a single zone or a single Zone Controller that controls multiple zones.
This is explained in further detail in “Section 4.4 ZC DIP Switches & Programming”.

4.4 ZC DIP Switches & Programming
When configuring the ZCs, there are two steps which need to be completed before the ZCs will
function:
• Step 1: Assign the ZC IDs and perform the ZC Configuration programming
• Step 2: Associate the ZCs
The programming of the ZCs is performed using the
Configuration Wizard in ZonePRO Designer.
Step 1: Assign the ZC IDs and perform the ZC Configuration programming
The ID# assignments on each Zone Controller, set using the DIP switches on the side of each,
must correspond with the appropriate ZC Input port on the back of the ZonePRO device and
with the program loaded into the ZonePRO.
Top ZC Input Port (1-6)
The top ZC Input port on the back of the ZonePRO
device corresponds with ID#s 1-6. Therefore, to
select ID#2 for example, simply flip the 2 DIP
switch into the on position and connect the ZC to
the top ZC Input port on the ZonePRO. You must
then program this ZC, on the corresponding ZC
Panel Configuration page in ZonePRO Designer’s
Configuration Wizard, as ZC Input 2 (ID#2).
Bottom ZC Input Port (7-12)
The bottom ZC Input port on the back of the
ZonePRO device corresponds with ID#s 7-12. The
physical DIP switch settings simply start over or
repeat when connecting to the bottom ZC Input
port on the ZonePRO. For example, to create ID#s
7-12, add 6 to the ID# selected on the ZC’s DIP
switch. For example, to get an ID# of 10, connect
to the bottom ZC Input port and set the ID# to
4 (4+6=10). You must then program this ZC, on
the corresponding ZC Panel Configuration page in
ZonePRO Designer’s Configuration Wizard, as ZC
Input 10 (ID#10).

When programming the ZC’s on the ZC Panel Configuration
page, you will also notice an Edit button next to each assigned
ZC.
You will need to click on the Edit button for each assigned ZC
to further define how each ZC will function. For example, this
is where you would set a volume controller’s range constraints
(defining how much gain or attenuation the end user is
allowed to apply when turning the ZC volume up or down) or
assign which input sources will be selected when programming
a source selection controller.

Zone Controllers
Section 4
Step 2: Associate the ZCs
The second step in configuring the ZCs is to associate each ZC. In other words, you need to
select which input or output is actually being controlled by each ZC. Therefore, you only need
to associate volume controllers and source selection controllers; page steering controllers, the
ZC-FIRE, and scene selection controllers do not require you to perform this step.
There are two pages in the ZonePRO Designer
Configuration Wizard where you associate the
Zone Controllers. The first page is the Source
ZC Association page. This page simply allows
you to associate volume controllers to inputs
for controlling input gain. If you wanted to
control the volume of a karaoke microphone
for example, this is the page where you
would associate a ZC volume controller to
control the input gain of the karaoke mic.
When controlling input gain, keep in mind that since the gain is performed on the input
side of the signal chain, all output zones which the input is routed to will be affected by the
gain changes.
The Routing and Zone ZC Association page
allows you to associate output zone volume
controllers and source selection controllers
(this defines which controllers control which
zones). The Source column on the left is
where the source selection ZCs, such as the
ZC-3, are associated. The Level column on
the right is where all output zone volume
controllers are associated, such as the ZC-1.
Please see ZonePRO Designer’s help section for further information on these windows.

Section 5
Link I/O
ZonePROTM
Section 5 - Link I/O
5.1 Link I/O Overview
The Link Bus allows you to route some of the ZonePRO’s audio inputs to another ZonePRO or
daisy chain multiple ZonePROs using standard straight-through Cat 5 cables, instead of using
“Y” cables or a dedicated distribution amplifier. This allows for easy expansion of outputs (or
zones) in a ZonePRO system.
The Link Bus does not expand the input channel count of a ZonePRO system.
Simply connect a short straight-through Cat 5 cable from
the Link Output RJ-45 connector of the device sending the
signals, to the Link Input RJ-45 connector of the device
receiving the signals.
The cable length of the linking cable must not
exceed 25’! Linking more than 3 ZonePROs is typically not
recommended, as systems of this size generally require
processors with a more sophisticated feature set.
Sending
ZonePRO
Receiving
ZonePRO
LINK INPUT
LINK INPUT
LINK OUTPUT
LINK OUTPUT
The included Ethernet crossover cable cannot be used to link ZonePROs!
The analog input signals are routed directly to the Link Output connector. Therefore, the
program material coming out of the Link Output has not been processed by the DSP and when
connected to another ZonePRO’s Link Input, both devices are processing the same program
material.
The Link Input connector is routed directly to the input circuitry. This means that when using
the Link Bus, any inputs sent down the Link Bus and received at a ZonePRO’s Link Input will
render those corresponding input jacks unusable on the receiving ZonePRO. If a source were to
be connected to any of the receiving ZonePRO’s corresponding inputs, this would be akin to
connecting two sources to the same input jacks and doing so may cause distortion or damage
to the processor.
5.2 Jumpers
If there are signals that you do not want to send or receive through the Link Bus you can
open those connections in the Cat 5 cable. The RCA inputs are always active and can only be
disconnected by opening the connections in the Cat 5 cable, but the ML1 and ML2 Euroblock
mic/line inputs do have selection jumpers inside the device. These jumpers can be set to
“Enabled” or “Disabled” on the “Link In” side or “Link Out” side on each ZonePRO processor.
These jumpers come from the factory set to “Enabled”.

The ZonePROm processors derive the last two octets of their IP address from the
processor’s Mac address. This helps prevent IP conflicts when networking multiple ZonePROm
processors. The ZonePRO 1260 and 1261 have a static IP address as shown in the above table.
Therefore, when networking multiple ZonePRO 1260s or 1261s, their IP addresses must be
changed manually in order to avoid IP conflicts.
6.2 Networking Overview
This section provides a step-by-step guide on how to properly connect and configure LAN
settings for three different network architectures. The first topology is a simple direct
connection using the provided Ethernet crossover cable. The second method describes how
to connect several ZonePROs to an isolated network and configure them with the ZonePRO
Designer GUI. The final configuration details how to add one or more ZonePRO devices to
an existing Local Area Network (LAN). The following subsections explain how and when to
connect to a remote ZonePRO using the proxy feature and some tips and examples of how to
access your ZonePRO by setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This section concludes
with some further networking considerations and troubleshooting tips that will help with
connecting to your ZonePRO device via Ethernet.
Careful planning needs be made before placing a ZonePRO on a network that provides any
access to the public. Some examples of public access are direct access to the device from
the Internet, an unsecured or weakly secured wireless network, a network jack in a public
area that provides network access to the ZonePRO, or having a computer on the LAN that is
not secured so that someone could use the ZonePRO Designer software to reconfigure the
ZonePRO. It is highly recommended that the equipment be placed on a protected, isolated
network that does not have any connection to the public to prevent unauthorized users from
reconfiguring the device. Please refer to the VPN portion of this section for more information.
At the current time, ZonePROs do not support DHCP or Auto IP (see the “Default ZonePRO
Network Settings” section for more information). In order to use Ethernet to manage the
device from the ZonePRO Designer GUI, modifications to the network settings may be needed

The included cable is an Ethernet crossover cable. This means that the transmit and receive
lines are crossed so that you can hook two Ethernet capable devices together without a hub
or switch. If you are using a hub or switch you will need to provide your own cables.
6.3 Overview of TCP/IP Basics
Subnet
A small network within a larger network. For example, a TCP/IP network might be a subnet
of a venue’s network, which could include computers throughout the building, or a network
might be divided into subnets. For example, in a large installation, there may be one subnet
per rack or room.
IP address
An identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Each device in a network has its
own IP address to identify it. Example: 126.126.17.42. Networks using the TCP/IP protocol
route messages based on the IP address of the destination. An IP address consists of four
numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. The last number should not
be a zero or 255. For example, 126.126.17.1 could be an IP address. 126.126.17.0 would not
be a valid IP address.
Network ID and Host ID
A TCP/IP or IP address has two parts: the NETWORK ID and the HOST ID. The NETWORK ID
identifies the network, and the HOST ID identifies either the subnet and device, or just the
device if there is no subnet.
The subnet mask is a code that indicates which part of the TCP/IP address is the NETWORK ID
and which part is the HOST ID. In subnet-mask code, 255 means “This part of the address is
the NETWORK ID”.
Example: Suppose the IP ADDRESS of a device is 192.168.12.34 and the SUBNET
MASK is 255.255.0.0. That means, (192.168) is the NETWORK ID. The remaining set
of numbers (12.34) is the HOST ID. If your network stands alone (it is not part of
a larger network) then the HOST ID identifies each device in the network. If your
network is part of a venue’s larger network, your network is actually a sub-network or
subnet.
All devices in the network have the same network ID. There are many resources
available on the Internet for IP and subnet calculation.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
This is a protocol for automatically assigning IP addresses to devices on a network.
With dynamic (DHCP) addressing, a device might have a different IP address every
time it connects to the network. If a computer is NOT connected to a network with
a DHCP server, the computer will assign a default network ID into the TCP/IP address
and a default subnet mask. In this case the attached computer may need its IP address
assigned statically (manually). Please note, at this time, ZonePROs do not support DHCP.

6.4 Connecting via direct-connect Ethernet
Assumptions:
• Using Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7.
• Computer has a working Ethernet network adapter.
• You have administrative rights on the PC so that network settings can be changed if
necessary.
1. Connect the included Ethernet crossover cable to both the ZonePRO and the PC.
A standard straight-through Ethernet cable will not work in this direct connect
situation with a 1260 or 1261 because common straight-through cables are designed to
hook a device to a hub or switch. See section “8.8 Wiring Diagrams” for a wiring diagram
of the Ethernet crossover cable.
2. Apply power to the ZonePRO and wait for it to boot.
3. Windows networking, in its default configuration, will automatically configure its IP
setting to something in the Auto-IP range (169.254.xxx.yyy with a subnet mask of
255.255.0.0 and no gateway). The process of windows assigning an Auto-IP address normally
takes 1-2 minutes.
4. Optional (You only need to do these steps if the ZonePRO device does not show up
in step 7.) Verify that you have the correct IP settings on your computer by running
ipconfig.
a. This is done by clicking on “Run”... from the Window’s Start Menu.
b. Enter cmd and click “OK”. This will bring up a command window (DOS box).
c. At the prompt, enter ipconfig and press enter.
d. Now on your screen you will see your current IP settings. You should notice
that the IP Address for the adapter will either be 169.254.x.y where x and y are
numbers between 0 and 255, or 0.0.0.0. If it is 0.0.0.0, wait for about a minute
and enter the ipconfig command again (Windows is still trying to obtain an IP
address). It takes Windows about 1-2 minutes to set an Auto-IP address. If you
have some other address, you are either not hooked directly to the ZonePRO with
the crossover Ethernet cable, or your computer is configured with a static IP
address.
nly perform these next steps if your computer is configured with a static IP address
O
(i.e. your IP address is not 169.254.x.y or 0.0.0.0). Otherwise skip to step 5.
a. From the control panel, open the network connections window.
b. Right click on the Local Area Network (LAN) connection that is wired to the
ZonePRO and select “Properties”.
c. Highlight “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and then press the properties button.
d. If “Use the following IP address” is selected, write down all the information on
this page. The following steps will overwrite these settings, so you will need to
keep this information to restore your network settings.
e. Select the “Obtain an IP address automatically” radio button.
f. Click on the Alternate Configuration tab and make sure that “Automatic private IP

g. Click OK in each window to close them.
h. After about 1-2 minutes your computer will configure itself with the correct IP
settings. Verify this by running the ipconfig command again, as described above.
5. Launch the ZonePRO Designer application. If it is currently running, make sure that you
are not online by selecting “Go Offline” from the Network menu. If the device icon is
already grayed-out, ZonePRO Designer is currently offline.
6. Select “Properties” from the Network menu. Make sure that “Use Ethernet” is selected.
Click “Next”.
7. Click “Next” again to enter the Address Tool. Ensure that there are no addressing
conflicts (only ZonePRO Designer and the ZonePRO device should show up, and their node
addresses should already be different). Close the Networking Wizard.
8. Select “Go Online” from the Network menu. A ZonePRO icon will appear in the main
ZonePRO Designer window. This indicates that you are online and the ZonePRO Designer
software has discovered the ZonePRO device.
6.5 Setup of a simple isolated Ethernet network
Assumptions:
• Using Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7.
• Computer has a working Ethernet network adapter.
• You have an Ethernet hub (or switch) and Ethernet cables for each connection needed.
An integrated device such as a home gateway/router will not work because they have
a DCHP server (see section 6.3).
• You have administrative rights on the PC so that network settings can be changed if
needed.
• The Ethernet network consists of exactly one computer that will be used to run the
ZonePRO Designer software and one or more ZonePRO devices.
1. Connect the PC and any ZonePRO devices to the hub using standard straight-through
Ethernet cables.
The included crossover Ethernet cable should not be used. Crossover cables are only
designed to connect two Ethernet adapters directly to each other.
2. Apply power to all ZonePRO devices and wait for them to boot.
3. Windows networking, in its default configuration, will automatically configure its IP
setting to something in the Auto-IP range (169.254.xxx.yyy with a subnet mask of
255.255.0.0 and no gateway). This process normally takes 1-2 minutes.

6.6 Adding the ZonePRO to an existing Local Area Network
Assumptions:
• Using Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7.
• Computer has a working Ethernet network adapter.
• You have a static IP address that is compatible with your existing network.
• There is an existing LAN where the computer that will be running the ZonePRO
Designer software is able to attach to the LAN, obtain an IP address, and see other
devices on this network.
1. C onnect the ZonePRO device to the network using a standard straight-through Ethernet
cable.
The cable provided with the ZonePRO is a crossover cable and will not work for this
application.
2. Apply power to the ZonePRO device and wait for it to boot.
3. Launch the ZonePRO Designer application. If it is currently running, make sure that
you are not online by selecting “Go Offline” from the Network menu. If it is already
grayed-out, ZonePRO Designer is currently offline.
4. Select “Properties” from the Network menu. Make sure that “Use Ethernet” is selected.
Click “Next”.
5. Click “Next” again to enter the Address Tool. It may take up to one minute for your new
ZonePRO to show up in the device window.
6. Select the ZonePRO from the table and click “Change Address” to set the IP address
of your ZonePRO device. Contact your network administrator for IP address, subnet
mask, and default gateway settings that are appropriate for your network. If connecting
multiple ZonePRO devices, ensure that there are no addressing conflicts. If you see more
than one ZonePRO device, you may need to resolve network conflicts. Each ZonePRO
device must have a distinct IP address and node address. When this is done and all
network conflicts are resolved, close the Networking Wizard and the ZonePRO Designer
application.
7. Launch the ZonePRO Designer application and select “Go Online” from the Network menu.
The ZonePRO icon(s) should appear in the main ZonePRO Designer window. This indicates
that you are online and the ZonePRO Designer software has discovered the ZonePRO
device(s).

ZonePROTM
Networking
Section 6
6.7 Proxy
T he proxy feature allows you to access a ZonePRO over a complex or remote network. An
example of this is when the PC and the ZonePRO reside on different subnets. The mechanism
that is used by default for the ZonePRO designer software to discover and maintain a
connection to the ZonePRO devices utilizes IP broadcast packets. These packets will not travel
through internet routers and even some high end core switches. In order to connect to one
or more ZonePROs that are attached to a complex network, proxy is used to tell the ZonePRO
Designer software where on the network to look for the ZonePRO devices.
There only needs to be one proxy setup for each group of ZonePROs that are on the same
local network. The device that is the proxy will pass information to the other ZonePROs that it
sees on the network that will allow them to connect to the ZonePRO Designer software.
Follow these steps to setup a proxy connection:
1. Make sure that the ZonePRO has been correctly configured for the network that it is on
and that the PC that is running the ZonePRO Designer software has a network connection
to that ZonePRO device. You should be able to ping the ZonePRO from the Windows
computer.
2. Select “Properties” from the Network menu of the main ZonePRO Designer window.
3. Make sure that “Use Ethernet” is selected.
4. Select “Advanced”.
5. Click the “Add” button. The Add Proxy window will appear.
6. Enter the IP address or a host name for one of the ZonePRO devices on the remote
network and click “OK”.
7. Press the “Finish” button to close the properties window.
8. Select “Go Online” from the Network menu. After a moment you will see your devices
appear in the main ZonePRO Designer window. This indicates that you are online and the
ZonePRO Designer software has discovered the ZonePRO devices.
If the ZonePRO Designer software can not establish a connection with the proxy you will
receive a failure message after about one minute of trying to connect.
Proxy can be used to allow remote access to monitor and make minor changes to any ZonePRO
that is accessible from the internet. There are some things that can not be done over a proxy
connection. For example, it is not possible for you to change the IP or node addresses over a
proxy connection. Proxy is not intended for initial setup of any ZonePRO, it can only be used
for remote monitoring and minor maintenance.

6.8 Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
Virtual private networks (VPNs) provide an encrypted connection (or tunnel) between
networks or between a network and a user over a public network (such as the Internet).
Instead of using a dedicated, real-world connection such as a leased line, a VPN uses virtual
connections through the public network. The advantage of a VPN is that your computer can be
virtually connected to a local network from anywhere in the world where you have an internet
connection. This can also be done in a safe manner, not compromising your local network’s
security. If you would like to manage your ZonePROs remotely you should create a secure VPN
connection.
There are many solutions on the market today that provide VPN access. These products offer
different features, methods of VPN, complexity of setup and maintenance, as well as varying
levels of security. Recommending a VPN solution that will best suit the needs of your network
is beyond the scope of this document, although you will need a VPN that is capable of
passing UDP and TCP traffic (most do). The ZonePRO has been tested against several solutions
and should work with all VPNs that meet these criteria. Please work with your system
administrator and Internet service provider to find a VPN that will best fit your network.
The 3Com OfficeConnect Secure Router (model # 3CR860-95) is one solution that has been
tested, and is both inexpensive and simple to set up. It provides up to two concurrent VPN
connections. It works well with the built-in VPN interfaces in Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP.
6.9 Network Considerations and Limitations
• Without a VPN, there can be no access from the outside world to any ZonePRO that
is behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) router. (One-to-One NAT and port
forwarding will not work.)
• The Address Tool will not allow address changes on any ZonePRO that is connected to
the GUI via a proxy.
• When connecting to a ZonePRO through a proxy, the Locate Tool will only work on the
device that is setup as the proxy, and not the devices that are connected through it.
• Only connect at a 10-Mbit rate. This will work at both 10 half and 10 full duplex. Any
device that is forced to 100-Mbit or above will not link up.
• There is no auto sensing of the Ethernet Tx/Rx pairs. This means that if a hub switch
is not used, then the user must connect to the device via an Ethernet crossover cable
(supplied).
• There is a maximum of 10 ZonePRO devices that can connect to the ZonePRO designer
software at any given time.
• If the proxy link initially fails to connect, the user must go offline and then go back
online before the proxy connection will be re-established.
• Firewall Considerations: The ZonePRO uses port 3804 (udp and tcp) to communicate
with the ZonePRO Designer software. Make sure that you configure your firewalls
correctly so that data sent to and from this port number can traverse your network.

ZonePROTM
Networking
Section 6
6.10 Network Troubleshooting
If you are having difficulty getting your ZonePRO to show up in your ZonePRO Designer
software, here are some things that you can try to resolve the problem.
Software Firewall: If the PC that you have installed the ZonePRO Designer software on
has a built in firewall, you need to make sure that you allow the software the ability to
communicate on your network. Try disabling your firewall and then going offline and back
online in the ZonePRO software. If this fixes the problem, refer to your firewall manufacturer’s
documentation on how to reconfigure your firewall to allow the ZonePRO Designer application
and/or port 3804 tcp and udp to pass through the firewall.
Ethernet Link: Make sure that you have a valid Ethernet connection by looking at the link
status LEDs on each device’s Ethernet port. Most Ethernet devices will have some kind of
indicator that shows the link is present. Check the following connections:
• ZonePRO device – If there is a valid connection on the ZonePRO you will see a solid
green LED.
• PC running the ZonePRO Designer software
• Hub/Switch (if used)
• If you fail to see a link light, try removing and reinserting the cable or try a different,
known working cable. Also, make sure that you are using the correct cable. The
included crossover cable is only for making a direct connection between your PC and
the ZonePRO.
Ping: There is a simple utility built into Microsoft Windows operating systems that test the
network connection between two devices. The following steps outline how to use this utility.
1. Click the Windows Start Menu button then select Run.
2. Enter cmd and press OK. This will bring up a command window.
3. In the command prompt window, enter PING <IP address of your ZonePRO>
(example: ping 169.254.10.10) and press the Enter key. The data should appear
something like this:
Pinging 10.10.10.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from <IP address of your ZonePRO>: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from <IP address of your ZonePRO>: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from <IP address of your ZonePRO>: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from <IP address of your ZonePRO>: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
If you get a “reply from” response from the IP address that you were pinging in a timely
manner, it means that you have a valid network connection between the two devices.
If you receive a “Destination net unreachable” or “Request timed out” message, this
indicates that your computer is not communicating with the ZonePRO device.

Flash Update (1260, 1260m, 640, 640m)
A ZonePRO firmware release will include a PC application that will load the new firmware
version to a device connected via RS232. The receiving ZonePRO should be running. Follow
the directions in the PC flasher application.
If, for some reason, you are not able to update your firmware successfully using this method,
there is another “backdoor” method. This method forces the ZonePRO into a special Flash
Update Receive Mode:
Hold the <1> button while connecting power to the ZonePRO. A message similar to the
following will appear:
WAITING FOR”
FLASH DOWNLOAD”
2B100002
The device now accepts a flash download from the PC flasher application. Run the PC flasher
application then follow the instructions on the LCD when the flash completes.
Flash Update (1261, 1261m, 641, 641m)
A ZonePRO firmware release will include a PC application that will load the new firmware
version to a device connected via RS232. The receiving ZonePRO should be running. Follow
the directions in the PC flasher application.
If, for some reason, you are not able to update your firmware successfully using this method,
there is another “backdoor” method. This method forces the ZonePRO into a special Flash

8.6 Factory Reset Procedures
In the event that a reset is required, the ZonePRO offers you the option of performing a
“Hard” or “Soft” Factory Reset.
The results of performing a “Soft” reset are:
• The state of the currently loaded scene’s parameters are reset to what has been stored
in flash for that scene (this invalidates the state of those parameters when the device
was last turned off).
• The currently loaded scene is reset to Scene 1.

ZonePROTM
dbx® incorporates high quality mechanical fans in some products. All mechanical fans have
a limited life expectancy. We recommend annual inspection of fans for dust occlusion and
excessive noise. Fan assemblies should be replaced after six to ten years of use. Environmental
factors such as elevated temperature, dust, and smoke can adversely affect fan life. Systems
exposed to these conditions should be inspected more frequently. Fan replacement can be
performed either at the factory or by an experienced technician in the field. Please contact
dbx Technical Support for more information on purchasing replacement parts or product
service.
dbx® has a policy of continued product improvement and accordingly reserves the right to
change features and specifications without prior notice.
