DeviceMaster Modbus Router Firmware

After programming the IP address into the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway, you are ready to upload or update the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway with the Modbus Router firmware.

The DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway family includes DeviceMaster UP and DeviceMaster MOD models.


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 must upload Modbus Router firmware on the DeviceMaster UP using PortVision DX before configuring the serial ports.

Refer to the Modbus Router User Guide for detailed information and 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 UP.

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 Modbus Router version before configuring serial ports.

You can check the firmware version on the DeviceMaster UP if Modbus Router was loaded on the DeviceMaster UP and if necessary, upload the latest version of Modbus Router using PortVision DX.
