How do you upgrade AWS900 and AWS900+ to include both the AWS900+ SE and AWS924/948 software features?
There are four simple stages to the upgrade:
1) Enable the features on your console via our on-line registration engine using the activation code included in the upgrade kit
2) Download and install the latest version of software on your AWS console
3) Download and install the ipMIDI driver and the Logictivity browser (AWS Remote) on to your workstation computer
4) Install and configure an Ethernet connection between your AWS console and workstation computer
In addition to the AWS900+ procedure, the AWS900 requires the exchange of the Monitor PROM located on the console's CPU card. This involves removing the screws securing meter panel 17-24 and hinging down the panel to access the CPU card. Removing the Monitor PROM on the CPU card with a PLCC puller and inserting the new device. A PLCC puller is included in the AWS900 upgrade kit. The exchange requires a minimum amount of technical experience and the procedure is documented in the upgrade instructions.
As a cost option, customers who are uncomfortable with exchanging the Monitor PROM can request on-site support from their local distributor or SSL office.
The original SE software upgrade kits for AWS900 and AWS900+ have now been replaced with the V4 Logictivity kit which combines the SE and V4 upgrades. Part codes for the combined upgrade kits are detailed below:
