Update Instructions

Two methods of updating are available:

  • via USB stick directly on the unit
  • via Remote Configuration from a PC


Important

In both cases the ITC will be reset to factory default and all settings will be deleted by the update. Before starting with the update we recommend to save your ITC configuration.

WARNING:
If the power to the Thin Client or the connection to the PC is interrupted during the update process, the Thin Client may possibly no longer be functional. Ensure that the power supply of the Thin Client and the connection to the PC are not interrupted during the entire update process.  Please also ensure that any application running on the unit is closed. Before you update the firmware save the ITC configuration file, if appliccable. 

Installation with USB stick directly on the unit

Proceed as follows:
1.     Transfer the update file "update_v2_0_1.upd" to a USB stick
2.     Connect this USB stick to one of the two UBS interfaces on the rear of the ITC
3.     Open the menu "Configuration" on the ITC via the taskbar
4.     Log in with the valid administrator password
5.     Under "System" in section Device Configuration / Firmware Version select "Update"
6.     Select the update file "update_v2_0_1.upd" on the USB stick and start the update with "OK".  

The system will check the following conditions to determine whether the selected file is suitable for the Thin Client:
● The selected file is an update file.
● The selected update file is newer than the version installed on the Thin Client.
● The selected update file matches with this Thin Client.

If all conditions are fulfilled, the selected update file will be executed on the unit. The progress of the update will be indicated on the screen. After the successful update the unit will be restarted and the Setup Assistent appears.

Installation via the Remote Configuration Center (from V2.0)  

The Remote Configuration Center (RCC) enables you to update the firmware of one or more units from a PC. The RCC is included in the scope of delivery of the SIMATIC ITC.

Procedure to update one unit:
1.     Open the RCC and select the relevant ITC
2.     Under "System" in section Device Configuration / Firmware Version select "Update"
3.     From the previously determined directory select the update file "update_v2_0_1.upd" and start the update with "OK".

Procedure to update several units:
1.     Open the RCC and select all the relevant ITCs
2.     Select the button "Firmware update"
3.     From the previously determined directory select the update file "update_v2_0_1.upd" and start the update with "OK".

The system will check the following conditions to determine whether the selected file is suitable for the Thin Client:
● The selected file is an update file.
● The selected update file is newer than the version installed on the Thin Client.
● The selected update file matches with this Thin Client.

If all conditions are fulfilled, the selected update file will be executed on the unit. The progress of the update will be indicated on the screen. After the successful update the unit will be restarted and the Setup Assistent appears.

More information concerning the firmware update via the Remote Configuration Center:
An overview of the supported operating systems is provided in the user manual.

The device update with the RCC V2.0 is not possible under the following operating systems:
·         Windows 7

If you are using one of these operating systems first execute the update of an ITC via USB stick as described above. After the successful update of the unit you can download the RCC V2.0.1 from the diagnostic website of the upgraded ITC and use it to perform remote updates with the above operating systems.
