Monitor

Updating the Monitor/Loader of your TPP2(G2), TPP3(G2), or EM2000 to V2.10

Before you can upgrade to TiOS V3.70.xx you will need to update your device's Monitor/Loader. For those of you who don't know, the Monitor/Loader is a resident program assisting you in performing serial and network upgrades of your device's TiOS firmware. New TiOS won't run until you update the monitor to V2.10.

Checking the version of your Monitor/Loader

  • Power up your TPP2(G2), TPP3(G2), or EM2000 while keeping the MD button pressed.
  • Release the MD button.
  • Make sure the Ethernet cable is plugged in and the yellow Link LED is on.
  • Launch the Device Explorer.
  • Check the version of the Monitor/Loader. If it is V1.20 then you need to upgrade the Monitor/Loader.

Upgrading the Monitor/Loader

  • Use the Device Explorer to upload the following file onto your TPP2(G2), TPP3(G2), or EM2000: monitor_upgrader_V1XX_to_V210_TPP_EM.bin.
  • After the upgrade is completed and the device starts running, wait until the green status LED is turned on. This will indicate that the code is ready to update the Monitor/Loader.
  • Press the MD button (pull the MD line low). Now both red and green status LEDs will be on. The upgrade has begun!
  • Once the upgrade completes, the device will reboot and the green and red status LEDs will start blinking fast, indicating that there is no TiOS firmware on this board. That's right! The new Monitor/Loader is in, but the old TiOS is out. This is because the old TiOS is not compatible with the new Monitor/Loader.

Uploading the new TiOS

  • Now you will need to upload new TiOS firmware, and, since there is no TiOS on your device at this moment, you will need to manually enter the Monitor/Loader first:
  • Power your device on while keeping the MD button pressed (or line pulled low).
  • Release the MD button.
  • Make sure the Ethernet cable is plugged in and the yellow Link LED is on.
  • Launch the Device Explorer.
  • Upload new TiOS firmware.
  • Congratulations! You have successfully updated your Monitor/Loader and your TiOS.
