Generic SentryX/Wam-X Firmware Upgrade Instructions
Step 1. You must download or have the CircuitWerkes
firmware loader tool from our Website. You
must also have the firmware files for your
product. The firmware files are typically
zipped up together in one file. It's OK if
the version numbers don't match as long as
the two files are from our original zip file.
The firmware loader utility is the same for
all non-streaming SentryX products, including
the WAM-2. You do not need to download multiple
copies of the loader tool. The only exception
is for the 32-bit streaming versions which
use a different firmware loader tool. Install
the firmware loader tool on your PC.
Step 2. Run the FW loader tool and select
the DFF file that you downloaded for your
Step 3. Set the IP address of your product
in the loader tool and upload the DFF file
to your unit.
Step 4. Using a browser, log into ###.###.###.###/imageflash
If you’re using a port other than 80, it
would look like this: ###.###.###.###:PORT#/imageflash
Step 5. Login as Admin and use the administrator
code that you have set. Default = 12345678.
Step 6. Click the "choose" button
and browse to find the .BIN file that you
will be uploading.
Step 7. Click “Upload” to send the new BIN
to the product.
Step 8. Reset your product to factory defaults.
If using the hardware reset, do it at least
2x. Each time you reset the unit, wait, with
power applied, for 10 seconds before removing
power for the next reset. The hardware reset
is done by removing the top cover and shorting
the reset pins while powering up the board.
Reset pins are found near the front panel
Step 9. Import/Upload your configuration
data back to the unit and save the changes.
Note that connectivity settings and passwords
have to be done manually, one at a time.
