Release Notice

    • Exec v.3.00
    • Kernel v. 1.06
    • Web page v.1.04.02

Goals and Symptoms

Exec file, nic2212_upgrade_[k]_v1.06.07_[fw]_v3.00.05_[web]_v1.04.02_[eds_ico]_v1.13.exe is now available and will automatically run the loader utility program when executed and prompt the user to enter the IP address of the Ethernet NIM. The Exec, Kernel, and web files will load sequentially and then reboot the NIM when completed.

Facts and Changes

The new Exec., Kernel and web version is field upgradeable.

Causes and Fixes

The following issues have been resolved in this version:

  • The behavior of Bit 8 in Status Word 1 has been corrected. Bit 8 is '0' in a normal operating system. It will no longer be set to a '1' by power cycling the NIC or by putting the NIC island into RUN after a Stop.
  • Made the STBNIC2212 more robust when experiencing an Ethernet broadcast storm. It is now designed to self recover after a storm and not require a reboot.
  • At power up of an STBNIC2212, a reset/reload all parameters command will not be sent over the Island CANopen bus. Therefore, a configured device (such as a TesysU) on the CAN Extension will not be reset to its default parameters after a power cycle of the NIM or by pressing the Reset button.

    Previous STBNIC2212 Exec versions would reset the TesysU to its default parameters.
  • Implemented changes to make the STBNIC2212 more robust in large island configurations under heavy Ethernet traffic load.
