I/NET Door Processing Unit (DPU) 7910A / 7920A EPROM Feature matrix

Issue

  • What are the new features that are available in the 3.xx firmware version of the DPU.
  • Should we upgrade to the latest EPROM revision for the DPU 7910A / 7920A
  • If we do not upgrade the EPROM will I/NET work properly. 
  • 7910 / 7920 DPU Transactions not showing up in AMT - including Disabled / Deny Entry Sel / Deny Entry Schd (Schedule)
  • 7910 / 7920 DPU Door Editor changes not downloaded to controller.  Editor changes revert back to None. 

Environment

I/NET Seven

DPU 7910A / 7920A 2.23 and above.

Cause

The recommendation is to always upgrade to the latest revision. In some cases this is not always possible. Please review the information below to determine if these features and fixes are required for your installation.

Note: The implications are that if you choose to leave the EPROMs at the earlier revision, and you enable the new features which are a "Global" setting (for example User defined PIN) then the DPUs with the unsupported firmware will not accept these changes even though you have defined this at the Host. If you require these features then you MUST upgrade the DPU which require these features and / or fixes.

Resolution

I/NET Seven is backward compatible with all previous hardware firmware revisions of the DPU.  The recommendation is too always upgrade to the latest revision to enable all of I/NET's features and fixes included in these revisions. In some cases this is not always possible. Please review the information below to determine if these features and fixes are required for your installation.

Note: The implications are that if you choose to leave the EPROMs at the earlier revision, and you enable the new features which are a  "Global" setting (for example User defined PIN) then the DPUs with the unsupported firmware will not accept these changes even though you have defined this at the Host.  If you require these features then you MUST upgrade the DPU which require these features and / or fixes.

If you have any additional concerns then please contact Product Support.
