Upgrade ES100/ 800xA to SV6.0
Good Evening , Could you support to us in the following question?
We have s system 800xA version 4.1 Rollup 11b we are going to upgrade to SV6.0 or higher , the current ES 100 is on version : Aplication Builder 2.6/0 1999 , FucntionChartBuilder 4.6/0 1999, OnlineBuilder 2.6/0 1999,
Windows NT 4.00.1381 . The controllers installed are : AC450 1.1/2 Master Software QC02 *7 0/3 , AC410 1.3/5 Master Software QC01 * 9.0/0 , AC410 1.4/1 QC01 *10/0 .
We are verifying the hardware of the controllers to see which modules we should install to upgrade AC450 from 1.1/2 to 2.3 , AC410 from 1.3/5 and 1.4/1 to 1.5 because those controllers were installed many years ago ( around 20 years ) and there are many corrections on them according to SR006 , SR007.
We are thinking to install Control Builder A 1.4/1 into one of the connect node taking advantage of the SV6.0 or higher new features.
Is there any additional if we do that I mean we are going to use the Sentinel and the mapping from ES 100 to ES into connect node ?
Thanks for your support
In principle - what you want to do should work. And I agree that what you are aiming to do is a good idea. The steps you outline are basically correct.
If your system supports 800xA SV4.1 it should support 800xA SV6.0.3 -unless you're running an Accuray QCS in which case you cannot upgrade past SV5.1
Control Builder A can run on the connectivity server, and really, it doesnt matter what version you're upgrading from because you can just re-create all of the software by downloading and backtranslating .BA and .AA files.
But for a detailed response somebody is going to have to audit your system, verify your hardware and software revisions and prepare a full sales proposal.
Thats not something you can get from a few lines on the internet. You really should contact your local ABB sales office or a suitably qualified channel partner with experience in Advant Master upgrades.
