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.
