The Enabler card contains firmware (software or code) that controls the basic polling of pumps. This code works in conjunction with the pump driver DLLs running under Windows to completely control the pumps.
There is only one series of firmware, which is primarily updated when new pump protocols are added. Enabler cards are loaded in the factory with the latest stable code at the time of manufacture. You may need to update the firmware if you are using a pump protocol that has only recently been added.
To check the version of the firmware loaded on your Enabler card:
- Stop the Enabler Pump Server, if it is running.
- Run the program 'Install.exe' (or PCIUpdate.EXE) from C:\Enabler. From Enabler v3.75 this utility has been renamed and is called 'PCIUpdate.EXE'
- Assuming the code is working OK, you will see the version displayed as shown below:
