How to update software on a CEM+ module?

First determine the existing CEM+ software version by navigating to [About] and pressing the check mark. Press + or - until the version is displayed. Alternatively you can press the reset button on the CEM+ and the version will be displayed on boot. If you're using software v2.x you should be able to use the UpdaterAtor method, but if it's not being detected in that program, or if you're running even earlier code you'll need to update using the webUI. Both methods are outlined below.

Update using UpdaterAtor:

  1. Download and install the latest version of UpdaterAtor. This is also included in as part of the Net3 Concert installation.
  2. While still connected to the internet open UpdaterAtor, and click on Setup Versions in the top-right corner.
  3. Select CEM+ in the list of devices, and in the bottom left section select "3.1.3.9.0.44" and the corresponding download button. Once the download is completed close UpdaterAtor.
  4. Plug your PC into the network the CEM+ rack(s) reside on, and make sure your PC is in the same IP scheme as the racks. Next launch UpdaterAtor.
  5. Select the rack(s) in the list on the first page, and then click "Update." UpdaterAtor will display a progress bar as the software is sent to the CEM+, then the CEM+ will display "Loading New SW Please Wait..."
  6. Once completed the rack will reboot and will be loaded with the new software.
