Categorized as:

Yukon v9.1.3 and Network Manager v9.1.1 are the latest available software releases. Some of the new AMI features included in v9.1 include:
- Ability to receive GPS coordinates from the Gateway 800/801 after programmed on-site with Network Runner
- New data channels for Elster A3, Landis+Gyr S4x/S4e/FOCUS RX(e), and Itron SENTINEL
- Ability to detect meter model changes in the field and update accordingly
- Addition of new device types for FOCUS AXe  Read more...meters to differentiate them from AX meters
- Tracking of meter firmware versions (in addition to RFN version)
- General improvements around mapping, smart notifications, data collection, and the RFN-1200

Also, RF Mesh Firmware v9.5 has just recently been released for general availability after several months of early monitoring and evaluation. New features and improvements here include:
- Gateway improvements to help prevent reaching the 5,000 node limit
- Extended water node support for new meters and protocols
- FOCUS meter optical port is now available for 5 minutes after power-up for probe access without requiring use of Network Runner
- Increased the maximum number of battery nodes that can associate to a relay
- Prevention of false gateway alarms on UPS battery voltage low when a UPS is not connected
- Improved network link adaptation algorithms to optimize routing
- New data channels for Elster A3, Landis+Gyr S4x/S4e/FOCUS RX(e), and Itron SENTINEL
- Network Runner improvements including addition of RSSI signal measurements, new commands to shed LCRs longer, and ability to export on-demand readings in decimal format

Please check out the Yukon 9.1 What's New guide here and Yukon 9.1 Release Notes that will be uploaded shortly for more details on these and other changes included in the latest software and firmware releases. Show less...

Single Phase Meter Resets on its own

Categorized as:

We are having issues with our Itron C2SX and C1SX meters resetting to zero after reaching the value 4294967295 which is FFFFFFFF in hex. In network manager and Yukon the value resets to zero once this value is passed but the display keeps accumulating. Has anyone else had this issue?

Hey Zach! Yes, this issue is present in all firmware versions prior to v9.3.4 and v9.4 and is also true for L+G residential meter types (resolved in v9.4+ only for L+G nodes). A firmware upgrade will prevent this from occurring for you in the future and can hopefully help others who see your post here as well.

RF Mesh firmware 9.1 and Yukon 7.3 are now available!

Categorized as:

Consider upgrading your network firmware and Yukon software versions to take advantage of our latest features and improvements. As a reminder, these upgrades are included at no additional cost with your annual maintenance package!

Here are just a few of the new features in Yukon v7.3, FW v9.1, and FW v9.0 (included here due to its limited installations). Many of the listed FW features are combined engineering efforts with Yukon and require the correct Yukon versions as well, so  Read more...we recommend upgrading all the way to Yukon v7.3 before the upgrade to FW v9.1.

Yukon 7.3
• Comprehensive mapping showing nodes by primary gateway or link quality
• Option for the CIS to update device GPS coordinates via MultiSpeak
• Battery Node Analysis Report to identify end-of-life batteries
• Demand response using disconnect meters for a single device to both meter and control sub-metered loads

RF Mesh Firmware 9.1
• Advanced Tamper Detection
• Badger Water Events
• Support of Yukon Device Configuration improvements for polyphase meters
• Meter disconnect status is now provided in the initial data report to help ensure data synchronization
• Additional metrics supported for polyphase meters

RF Mesh Firmware 9.0
• IPv6 support across the RF Mesh down to end nodes
• Anycast and other significant outage improvements for much higher last gasp and restoration alarm success rates (ask about our new recommended timing settings for outage/restoration alarms)
• Improved reliability of clearing outage and OV/UV events appropriately
• Additional metrics supported for polyphase meters
• Yukon Device Configuration scalability improvements allow configuration of larger numbers of meters at once
• Yukon Device Configuration support to change the Demand Interval in single phase meters using Eaton's Advanced Metrology
• Wired gas node support and the RFG-201 Yukon device type

The latest firmware release has been closely monitored in limited deployments over the last three months and is ready for your upgrade. Contact our Technical Services team today to learn more and plan your upgrades! Show less...
