General Notes

This firmware update will bring older USB and Ethernet Interfaces up to firmware version 3.4 which implements DALI-2 functions and priorities.

Firmware Updater and Image Loader
RAPIX DALI eHub and 5" LCD panel

General Notes

This windows program uses an Ethernet connection to an eHub and allows:

  • Download latest firmware to the eHub;
  • Download latest firmware to a 5″ LCD panel;
  • Load, format and transfer an image to the LCD panel to appear on the fallback page.

Transfer of firmware updates and images to the LCD panel through the eHub avoids the need to remove an LCD panel from the wall.

The image transferred to an LCD panel can be used for branding – for example, showing the company logo for the installed site.

Images can be in common formats, such as bitmap, jpeg, png, and similar.

Usage

The downloaded executable includes the latest firmware for the eHub and 5″ LCD panel.

The eHub must be connected by Ethernet to the same LAN as the PC.

The eHub may need suitable Ethernet settings (eg IP address, use of DHCP, etc) to ensure Ethernet connectivity.

The eHub does not need to be connected to DALI when updates are loaded.

To transfer firmware and images to an LCD panel, the LCD panel must be connected to the eHub and operating. The channel number of the connection between the eHub and the LCD panel must be known.

Installation

Download the executable file, and then run it.

The executable is not installed onto the PC and can be deleted when the updates are completed.

Windows Service Application
NTP Broadcast

General Notes

This software runs as a windows service and will broadcast the current date/time on your LAN.

Very few systems use NTP broadcast. It is only suitable for LAN devices as it takes no account of network latency. For use on a LAN it is a simple and easy way to distribute time updates to devices that can accept NTP broadcast.

The RAPIX eHub can obtain date and time from three possible sources:

  • A Zone Controller. Date/time is transmitted over DALI.
  • An NTP server. Date/time transmitted over ethernet. The eHub must be configured with the IP address of the NTP server.
  • An NTP broadcast. Date/time is transmitted over ethernet by any computer that can run the windows service. The eHub needs only to be set up to use NTP broadcast.

This windows service provides that third option and in some cases this can be the easiest means of setting up a RAPIX eHub to receive date/time updates.

This application is not only used for RAPIX DALI eHubs – it can be used for any case where NTP broadcast is needed.

Installation

Download the linked setup file and run it.

This will install the windows service and set it running. The program needs no configuration.

Compatibility

Windows 7 and all later desktop versions. Also Windows Server 2008 and all later versions.

Uninstall / Removal

At install time, an entry is created in the Windows Apps list (Windows 8 and later), and this can be used to remove the program.

The Windows Programs and Feature control panel can also be used for removal.
