Keep this document with your other power monitor publications. This document contains: • Description of enhancements and issue resolutions • Instructions for upgrading existing Powermonitor 3000 units Note: Extract the “PM3000_V4_Firmware_Release.zip” file to see all the folders inside the zip file. It includes following folders:(1) Base Firmware v4.2X ONLY through Native RS485 port (2) EtherNet Comm v4.1 upgrade through ControlFlash (3) Release Notes (4) Version 4 EDS File (5) Web Update V110 New features and enhancements Ethernet communications Version 4.10 of the Ethernet Series B firmware has been released. Enhancements include: • Faster, more robust access to power monitor data, especially logs • A new Ethernet stack resolves memory leaks which caused occasional loss of Ethernet/IP communications Base module The following versions of base firmware have been released: • Version 4.24: Model 1404-M4 • Version 4.25: Model 1404-M5 • Version 4.26: Model 1404-M6 • Version 4.28: Model 1404-M8 Version 4.2x base module firmware has added 1. Single instance parameters are now supported for 23 of the most used parameters. They can be viewed directly in RSNetworx for Devicenet. 2. A selection has been added to the ethernet configuration. On the display module optional comms menu and the optional communications table configuration for ethernet a Protocol Selection now can be configured for CSP protocol compatibility. 3. A selection has been added to the Devicenet configuration. On the display module optional comms menu and the optional communications table configuration for Devicenet for swapping the float return format. PLC or CIP compliance is now supported. 4. Support has been added for messaging over ethernet between the panel view CHMI, Micrologix 1500, Micrologix 1400 products and the PM3000 powermonitor. 5. A new communication table allows writing the password to the product so that single configuration items can be configured from Panel View Products and HMI applications. Upgrading firmware Your Powermonitor 3000 firmware may be field upgraded. Upgrading is a two-step process. 1. The base firmware is upgraded using the native RS-485 port, using a cable and RS-232 to RS-485 converter that you provide, and a firmware installation tool attached to this document. 2. The Ethernet communications firmware is upgraded using the Ethernet port, using ControlFlash. You may upgrade base firmware, Ethernet firmware, or both. For best results, please upgrade both. Once you have upgraded the Ethernet firmware, you may take the optional step of upgrading the power monitor web page so that it includes energy results. Upgrading base firmware Please note the following important information before upgrading base firmware. IMPORTANT: If you wish to upgrade a power monitor from a model M5 to a model M6 or M8, please purchase an upgrade kit from your Rockwell Automation representative and follow the instructions provided with the kit. IMPORTANT: If your Powermonitor 3000 has base firmware earlier than version 2.0, please upgrade first to version 2.6x, and then upgrade to 4.2x. Upgrading 1.0x or 1.1x directly to 4.2x will overwrite the unit configuration, including PT, CT, communications, demand, data logging, setpoints, etc., and restore the default configuration. Please refer to Rockwell Automation Knowledgebase article 25840, “1404 Power Monitor Firmware,” for additional information and version 2.6x firmware kits. CAUTION: Upgrading base firmware requires access to the power monitor hardware. High voltages, shock and arc flash hazards may be present. Only qualified personnel equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment should access the power monitor and connect communications cables. Equipment required: • Notebook PC running Windows 2000 or XP operating system. PC must have serial and Ethernet ports • RS-232 to RS-485 converter such as an Allen-Bradley 1761-NET-AIC or B&B Electronics 485SD9TB Procedure: 1. Open up folder “Base Firmware v4.2X ONLY through Native RS485 port”. This archive contains 4 model specific firmware files along with the download utility files “DownloadUtility.exe” and “DownloadUtility.hlp”. program. 2. Connect the notebook PC through the selected converter according to the following wiring diagram (standard serial DF-1 point-to-point wiring). Note: NET AIC+, or any other RS485 converters that requires handshaking use Cable (Part Number S96881501) please see Knowledgebase Answer ID 19842. RSLinx should be shutdown (no other RSLinx or other software should be using com port). 3. Run the Powermonitor 3000 Download Utility program DownloadUtility.exe. 4. Click Program Setup. Browse to and select the firmware file for your PowerMonitor model (M4, M5, M6 or M8). Click Open and then Accept. 5. Click Start Download to install the updated firmware. The utility indicates the progress of connecting, detecting and downloading to the power monitor. If an error message is displayed, correct the error condition and start the download again. Common errors are: • Power monitor not detected. The communications cable is not connected properly or power is not applied to the converter • Power monitor native port configured with Modbus RTU protocol. Protocol must be DF-1 or auto-sense • Port in use. Another application (such as RSLinx) is using the serial port 6. When the download is finished, the power monitor will reset. After a self test, the power monitor status LED will glow solid green. The status indicator on the utility will also turn green. Click Exit to close the utility. Do not interrupt the download once it has begun. The download may take up to 10 minutes to complete. If the power monitor status indicator glows red after the download, verify that the firmware file selected is the correct file for the model. Try repeating the download. Occasionally you may need to reset control power to the power monitor as the utility is trying to detect the power monitor. Upgrading Ethernet communications firmware Please note the following important information before upgrading Ethernet communications firmware. If your power monitor already has version 4.10 Ethernet firmware installed, you do not need to upgrade again. Version 4.10 is the latest available as of the Version 4.2x base firmware release. IMPORTANT: Version 4.10 Ethernet communications firmware is not compatible with Series A Ethernet Powermonitor 3000 units. Series A units are labeled on the unit nameplate, may be identified by a 9-pin DIN connector located just above the Ethernet port, and typically have version 2.01 or 2.02 Ethernet firmware. Equipment required: • Notebook or desktop PC running Windows 2000 or XP operating system. PC must have an Ethernet port and be connected to the power monitor through a local area network or directly using a crossover cable. • RSLinx software installed on the PC Procedure: 1. Open the folder “EtherNet Comm v4.1 upgrade through ControlFlash” to the PC and save to and run the program setup.exe to install ControlFlash and the firmware files. 2. If not already done, open RSLinx software and establish communications to the power monitor using the Ethernet Devices driver. Verify communications using RSWho. 3. Open ControlFlash and then click Next from the welcome screen. Select “PM3000 Ethernet I/P DC” from the list of catalog numbers. Click Next. 4. Browse to and select the power monitor to be updated in the RSWho window. Click OK. 5. Select the 4.10 revision. If 4.10 does not appear, click Select All then select 4.10. Click Next. 6. Click Finish and confirm to begin installing the updated Ethernet communications firmware. When the Ethernet port has reset ControlFlash will indicate that the update is complete. Close ControlFlash. Upgrading the web page With Ethernet communications firmware at version 4.10, you may use ControlFlash to install the updated web page to include energy results. If you install the new web page on earlier Ethernet firmware energy results in the web page will not be correctly displayed. Equipment required: Same as for upgrading the Ethernet firmware. Procedure: 1.Open up the folder “Web Update V110” and run setup.exe program to install ControlFlash and the web page firmware files. 2. If not already done, open RSLinx software and establish communications to the power monitor using the Ethernet Devices driver. Verify communications using RSWho. 3. Open ControlFlash and then click Next from the welcome screen. Select “PM3000 Web Pages” from the list of catalog numbers. Click Next. 4. Browse to and select the power monitor to be updated in the RSWho window. Click OK. 5. Select the 1.10 revision. If 1.10 does not appear, click Select All and then select 1.10. Click Next. 6. Click Finish and confirm to begin installing the updated web pages. When the Ethernet port has reset ControlFlash will indicate that the update is complete. Close ControlFlash.
