DeviceMaster EtherNet/IP Firmware

After programming the IP address into the DeviceMaster UP/DeviceMaster EIP, you are ready to upload or update the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway with the EtherNet/IP firmware.

Depending on the model you purchased, it may or may not have EtherNet/IP loaded. DeviceMaster UP models may contain SocketServer, the default application from the factory.

DeviceMaster EIP models by default, ship with EtherNet/IP loaded. You should always verify that the latest firmware version resides on your DeviceMaster EIP using PortVision DX.

DeviceMaster UP models that have EtherNet/IP loaded are identified in PortVision DX.


Use PortVision DX to upload the DeviceMaster firmware files or optionally, the Firmware Uploader Utility for Linux.

There are two versions of PortVision DX. Older hardware with older firmware versions are typically served better using v3.05 and newer hardware with newer firmware versions require the latest version of PortVision DX.

You may need to upload the EtherNet/IP firmware on the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway using PortVision DX before configuring the serial ports.

Refer to the EtherNet/IP User Guide for detailed information and the EtherNet/IP Interface Configuration Quick Start for configuration procedures.

For secure configuration procedures, see the DeviceMaster Secure Configuration User Guide.




Bootloader is the RedBoot operating system that runs the device during the power on phase, which then starts the default application on the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway.

You should check the Bootloader version and if necessary, update Bootloader.

Depending on the serial number of your DeviceMaster, you may need to use a minimum bootloader version due to a hardware update. You can also determine the minimum Bootloader version using the MAC address.

You can review the firmware History file for the latest updates and enhancements.


Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol, Inc. recommends verifying that the DeviceMaster UP contains the latest EtherNet/IP version before configuring serial ports.

If your DeviceMaster UP model was shipped with EtherNet/IP, you should check the firmware version and if necessary, upload the latest version of EtherNet/IP using PortVision DX.
