Firmware updates

The firmware (internal software) in the MiniPlex-2 and MiniPlex-3 series multiplexers can be updated. To perform an update, download the desired firmware image file to your computer, start MPX-Config and use menu option File -> Update Firmware... to select the downloaded file and start the update process. A new version of MPX-Config may be required after the update, to utilize new functions of the multiplexer.

MiniPlex-3 See the Changelog for details about the updates.
MiniPlex-3 V2.0.6

NMEA 2000 Certified firmware. This firmware will turn any MiniPlex-3-N2K into an NMEA 2000 Certified product.

This firmware also contains many new features and improvements for non-N2K models.

Warning: This update erases the current configuration of your MiniPlex-3! Also, you must use the latest version of MPX-Config3 (V2.4.x) with this firmware.

MiniPlex-3 V1.18.0
  • Added $SDDBT sentence from SeaTalk and NMEA 2000 to NMEA 0183 conversion.
  • Conversion of NMEA 2000 Heave and Attitude to NMEA 0183.
  • Bugfix in setting system time from GPS.
WiFi V1.4.0.0

This WiFi firmware supports both TCP and UDP protocols. Up to four devices can join the access point, which can all send and receive NMEA data using UDP simultaneously. One TCP connection is supported in addition to UDP.

The stability of WiFi connections is also improved. The required MiniPlex-3 firmware and update instructions are included in the package.

 

MiniPlex-2 See the Changelog for details about the updates.
MiniPlex-2 V3.33.2 Fixed a bug that could lockup the MiniPlex when receiving too much NMEA data through the host port.
WiFi V4.75 This update addresses stability issues of the WiFi access point of the MiniPlex-2Wi. The required MiniPlex-2 firmware and update instructions are included in the package.

Utilities

MPX-Config is the configuration tool used for altering the settings of the MiniPlex multiplexers. From time to time we improve the firmware of the multiplexers and add new options. These options must be supported by MPX-Config. It is therefore important to match the version of MPX-Config to the version of the firmware in the multiplexer. The table below lists the matching combinations.

MPX-Config3 for MiniPlex-3
Version Firmware version

Description

See the Changelog for details about the updates.

2.4.2 2.0.6

This version of MPX-Config3 matches the new V2.0 firmware. This firmware is embedded in MPX-Config3 and will automatically load into your MiniPlex-3 when connected for the first time.

Warning: This update erases the current configuration of your MiniPlex-3! Also, the new MPX-Config3 V2.4.x will not read any old configuration file correctly. We advise to make screen shots of the current configuration using the previous version of MPX-Config3 first.

The Mac OS X version is still being developed.

New Features

Read Configuration
The configuration of the MiniPlex is now read with one single command instead of several. This improves reading the configuration on a "busy" multiplexer.

TCP/UDP Port number
It is now possible to change the TCP/UDP port number.

Bug Fixes

Filtering & Routing (Windows)
After a firmware update, the Filter list is now cleared prior to re-reading it from the MiniPlex. This prevents duplicate entries.

Filtering & Routing (OS X)
The headings in the SeaTalk columns are truncated to "S". On some computers, the "ST" was too wide and displayes as "..".

Capturing the filter list now places the checkboxes in the correct input columns. Selecting an entry now works correctly and clicking on Delete longer crashes the app.

Firmware Update (OS X)
The version check of a firmware file was wrong and therefore newer versions were alwas detected as being older than the loaded version.
