InView Comms Critical Firmware Update

April 30th, 2020

Announcing: Critical InView Communications Module Firmware Update!

Spectrum Controls announces a User Interface redesign for all InView Communications Modules that removes the dependency on Flash, which is EOL effective December 31st, 2020. The new User Interface uses HTML5 which improves usability and delivers a faster user experience.

InView Communications Modules with firmware versions of 1.04 (or earlier) are based on Flash and must be upgraded to v1.05 (or later) prior to December 31st, 2020. Failure to upgrade the units will result in the inability to access the InView Communication Moduleʼs User Interface. The firmware and FAQ can be downloaded from: https://spectrumcontrols.com/products/inview/communications-modules/

Catalog numbers and pricing remain unchanged.
