Sigma Z-Wave - Programmer Firmware upgrade

Equinox Technologies are pleased to announce the release of the latest 'programmer firmware' supporting the new Z-Wave 500 series devices from Sigma Designs.

This release now supports 'standalone programming mode' for 500 series devices making it possible to program these new devices without requiring PC control of the programmer.

Overview

This is a special firmware release designed to support both the older Sigma Z-wave 100 / 200 / 300 series plus the newer Z-Wave 500 series devices.

The firmware offers support for programming Z-Wave 500 series devices in "standalone programming mode" (new to this firmware release).

Main features

  • Support for both Sigma Z-wave 100 / 200 / 300 series plus the newer Z-Wave 500 series devices in the same firmware build.
  • Support for many popular "Serial SPI FLASH memories" and "Serial SPI EEPROM memories" which are often used alongside Z-Wave devices.
  • Finalised / tested support for Z-Wave 500 series programming in "standalone programming mode" (no PC required)
  • Z-Wave 500 series - NVR / NVR TXCAL and CCAL (XTAL) calibration validations

Device support:

This firmware release is primarily designed for use with Z-Wave devices, but it also supports many popular "Serial SPI FLASH memories" and "Serial SPI EEPROM memories" which are often used alongside Z-Wave devices.

The full device support for this firmware release is detailed below....
