– Download firmware – HAM edition

To download the new firmware click on the blue link. Instructions about how to update the firmware is described under 1216H Info and Start up 1216H pages.

Note!: Always unzip the bin-file inside the zip-file before updating!
Also note!: If you have firmware/software version 1.8 or older installed, you must install this file first.

As of version 4.0 the firmware has been split into two editions: “HAM” and “HOME”.  The HAM radio edition has the functionality needed for controlling antennas, rotators, etc. The HOME edition is used for home automation tasks. The version tree 3.x will still be available but only for maintenance, like bug fixes etc.

>>>Do not upgrade using the HAM version if you intend to use the Webswitch for HOME automation!<<<

Revision log:

Version 4.59 HAM edition:

  • Graphics for rotator are now integrated in fw. No internet connection needed anymore.
