1 Spyder Re-flash How-To

2 2 Re-Flash Tool Remember that Re-flash can be avoided by using the latest Spyder Tool (version or later) - Only exception is if you desire new features and you have an earlier firmware Spyder, then you MUST flash forward AND use the new tool to gain those features Download the Re-flash tool from the Forum - Run the executable and the re-flash program plus all current re- flash images will be installed - The re-flash tool will expire on April 1 st of every year to ensure that only current customers have access to flashing Spyder devices. The first date of expiration is 2013 Re-Flash will erase the control program as well as any bindings or balancing data - Perform an upload of that data if it hasn’t previously been done - Plan sufficient time to re-download/re-bind all re-flashed devices

3 3 Re-Flash Tool Failure to follow the steps below may result in a Spyder which is not recoverable - Ensure that nothing else is running on the PC used for re-flash - Ensure power will not be interrupted to the PC, Spyders or the rest of the communication network - Ensure that other PC’s are not flashing the same Spyder at the same time

4 4 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet Ensure your BACnet Router is setup properly Selecting a higher MS/TP Baudrate will speed up the flashing process but add risk if there are already devices talking on the network

5 5 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet Open the tool - A splash screen will display briefly - Then the setup screen will display Select BACNET IP to use a BACnet router like the Contemporary Controls router Select Lowest/Highest device ID’s to search for (may speed up discovery of devices) Select number of retries for discovering devices Select the Ethernet adapter connected to the router (in this case, the local LAN connection on your PC) Select the UDP Port (must match UDP port on router). Ensure UDP port not in use by other tools like Niagara Press Connect once correct choices have been made

6 6 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet Discover devices Select Scan For Devices and only Spyder devices will show up

7 7 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet Other Information Select devices to be re-flashed. Only devices of identical re- flash version can be re-flashed in a single batch job. Use this button to automatically select all Spyders with identical Reflash versions (useful for batch jobs, limit is 30 devices per batch) Use this button to automatically de-select all devices BACnet Device ID Status, OS Number and Brand Hardware and Brand ID (not editable) Firmware and Re-flash image currently loaded in device Device Name (Blank if new from factory, deleted after re-flash) BACnet network information Press this button to select a new firmware image to download (must first select a device)

8 8 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet After “Download Firmware to Devices” is pressed Select Browse to choose firmware to download Spyder BACnet is the only hardware with more than once choice for firmware. One choice will flash the Spyder forward to modify only the autobaud operation and the other supports the autobaud AND Zio Plus enhancements. A user may desire only the autobaud change when reflashing an existing job in which they don’t want to replace the existing Spyder Tool. Select folder with appropriate brand. These BACnet Spyder’s were ILC’s, otherwise choose the WEBs folder Select desired firmware image to download. The list is automatically filtered so only valid selections can be chosen

9 9 Re-Flashing Spyder BACnet Firmware Image information A note will tell you what the new firmware image will enable. This Spyder BACnet has new firmware loaded and is being re- flashed backwards
