DPX and PX (first generation) End-of-Life Announcement
Our first generation intelligent PDUs were released a decade ago. Unfortunately, we couldn’t predict how robust customers’ power management needs would become ten years on. In order to provide better support for later PX families, we’ve decided to end support for this one.
Below, you’ll find release notes and support files for this last update. We encourage you to contact Tech@raritan.com if questions or concerns arise.
We know how difficult it is to lack support for legacy products. And, that it can be equally difficult migrating to newer ones. But we’re committed to helping ease your burden.
Call or write to ask about extended warranties, or how we can help migrate you to the later PX2 or PX3 series.
The 1.x.x firmware releases apply ONLY to Raritan PX iPDUs with part numbers DPX-NNNN, and PX-xxxx (where x=a number). To verify if the model you want to upgrade is supported by a specific release — check the Supported Model list (PDF format) posted with each release — beginning with firmware release PX1.5.5.
Check your release number — check the User Guide for how to verify the release number.
Never install an older release — e.g., if you have PX release 1.5.5 do not downgrade to 1.5.2 — unless directed by Raritan Support.
Installing the incorrect version of firmware on a unit may render it non-functional, partially functional, result in false or no alarms, and could cause serious problems requiring the unit to be returned to factory to restore it to proper operation — so please contact Technical Support if have any questions before you download a release from the website. We have hundreds of PDUs, and new models are added daily, so it is quite possible that the firmware on the website may NOT include support for your particular model.
Never try to go upgrade from 1.x.x to a 2.x.x, or vice versa.
Firmware releases 1.4 and 2.1 (or higher) will inhibit improper downgrading/upgrading.
