UCM/ETH UCM/USB with firmware 5.178 and above should be used for firmware upgrade as it does not require a prior login, and can recover from an error during the upgrading process.
A UCM/ETH, UCM/232, or UCM/USB requires another UCM with a programming cable to upgrade. Once the UCM is upgraded to version 6 it can be upgraded using Direct Connection after that
The Programming cable method is the most reliable way of firmware upgrade if you are next to the Comfort system. Requires MPU01 Plug-in Upgrade
Comfort II firmware < 5.100
SEM II firmware < 5.100
MPU plug in with firmware > 5.100 will allow future firmware upgrades by UCM, hence all Comfort II products can be upgraded
Flash firmware can be identified by the version number being higher than 5.100. Firmware < 5.100 does not use Flash so it cannot be upgraded without the MPU01 plug in module
Please note that only firmware of the same type can be used to upgrade a module. For example, Comfort Ii Ultra can only be upgraded with Comfort II Ultra firmware, Slave SEM can only be upgraded with Slave firmware etc.
Firmware Upgrade does not affect the programming of the Comfort or other module which has been upgraded. It is not necessary to open the cclx file to do firmware upgrade
