Hi guys,

 

I am new here. I wanted to ask you guys, about upgrading firmware for my Galaxy Dimension 520. Currently it has got 6.7. I would like to upgrade it to 6.93 (or latest).

The product that's on offer here, Honeywell Galaxy Dimension SPI Key GD520, with the firmware;

is it all that i need for this? Is the upgrade process relatively straight forward, using the engineering menu?

Yes power down the panel. Plug in the key, power up and upgrade from the keypad.

Hi,
I have purchased/received the spikey with the 6.93 firmware for my dimension 520 and I'll do the upgrade of my system hopefully this weekend.

Just wanted to ask you guys: do I have to purchase a programmed spikey every time an update is released or is it possible to get the new firmware via an email, load it to my spikey (using a c087 programmer)? And if so, where can I get/download the new firmware when they are released?

I dont know of anywhere risk free and public im afraid. Are you a registered installer with honeywell?
That is technically possible if you have the fw file

Hi guys,

Can any one please confirm if the Honeywell Galaxy Dimension SPI Key GD520 currently on offer here, is with the latest firmware version 7.x, for the GD520?

Many thanks,

Hi, you can now also use the Honeywell flash programmer windows application to upgrade the panel firmware to 7.02. All you need is an RS232 lead to connect to the panels on-board RS232 port.   Start the software, then power cycle the panel when asked to by the software.  Upgrade takes around 7 minutes.
