About this task

The Upgrade Multiple Controllers Trunk Utility allows you to upgrade CAFs from multiple devices on the same trunk. Access this utility from the Tools menu by selecting Trunk Utilities > Upgrade Multiple Controllers. This menu option is only available when a CAF is not open.

Note: All controllers with an application version prior to or equal to the current tool release mode are upgraded. Controllers with an application version later than the current tool release mode are not upgraded, and a Version Mismatch message appears.

After you select the devices and the directory in which to save the CAFs, the utility performs the following tasks:


  1. Transfers the CAFs from the selected devices to your computer and updates the status.
  2. Upgrades the CAFs to the current version of the software and updates the status.
    Note: You are required to upgrade Point Expansion Modules on the SA Bus to the latest release before you can upgrade the field controller.
  3. Transfers the CAFs (including Boot Code and Main Code, if needed) to the devices and updates the status.
    Note: We recommend upgrading one device first before upgrading an entire trunk.

    During the process, you can use the View Log and View Status options to see the progress.

    See the Upgrading Multiple Controllers and Trunk Utilities - Upgrade Controller Software Wizard screens sections for information on the Upgrade Multiple Controllers Trunk Utility and how to use it.
