I have a question, maybe you can help me...
Y check the 3BSE080447 documento, but i'm not Shure about my case.
I have a 5.1 Fp4 Rev D with RU1 system and i have to make an Upgrade to 5.1 FP4 rev E... What is the status for this case? C, C/O, non C/O?
Thanks in advance!
I'm not a professional on Control IT, but here are my two cents...
1. You must keep in mind that the co-existence/online upgrade table refer to Control IT versions for firmware and Control Builder M (which may not be same as 800xA System or 800xA Base versions).
The System Software Versions documents (I have all of them, all revisions, on my local harddrive just for cases like this!) will help with interpreting the versioning of System 800xA components.
3BSE056732 Rev N (Janary 2014)
3BSE056732 Rev Y (August 2016)
2. The table, reduced to the versions you will end up with in controller (before firmware upgrade) and Control Builder M version (after installation of new 800xA software) becomes:
My interpretation is that upgrading from FP4 RevD (with controller firmware 5.1.1-1, 5.1.1-2 or 5.1.1-2 CC1) to 5.1 FP4 RevE (with 5.1.1-3 firmware) is supported by PA and HI (safety controller) both with co-existence and online.
Also the upcoming 5.1 FP4 RevE Control IT RU4 (firmware 5.1.1-4) is *planned* to support co-existence and online upgrade from same versions as above by PA but *NOT* HI (safety controller). With HI controller you must first upgrade to 5.1.1-3 if you plan to do it online or use co-existence.
