Sarix and Pelco IP camera model numbers in correlation with their related firmware code numbers.

Issue

  • What is the firmware code number model of the Sarix camera I have?
  • Reference to the four digit firmware code and associated Sarix model of camera.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Sarix models - ALL -  ID, IDE, IEE, IM, IME, IX, IXE, Professional (IxP) and Enhanced (IxE) 
  • NET5400
  • Spectra HD - D5118, D5220, D5230
  • ESTi
  • Sarix TI2/TI3
  • Device Utility version 2.0 AND 3.0

Cause

Customers see firmware coded four-digit number and wonder what model the PPM firmware file is for.

Resolution

When reading a Sarix related PPM firmware file, you will see the following as AN EXAMPLE: IMS0C101-1V-1.9.2.202-1.82603-O105654. The breakdown of the firmware code is thus:

  • IMS0C101 is the friendly name for the Sarix model in reference. This is generally how we all refer to the Sarix model numbers.
  • 1.9.2.202 is the actual version of the firmware. Any of the first 2-3 "octets" (depending on actual version) delineated with the periods at the very beginning of the PPM file is each models associated version.
  • 1.82603 is the coded model number where the "1" is not referenced in this instance and the next four digits are the coded model of the Sarix camera. This is how the firmware PPM file and Utilities application "knows" which model the PPM file is to go to and why it gets rejected if you try to send the wrong PPM file to the wrong model of Sarix camera.
  • O105654 - this is in reference to the hardware revision and another way that the firmware "knows" if it is going to be accepted by the camera you are pushing the firmware to from DU (Device Utilities) or EU (Endura Utilities). The capital "O" is the latest release and the previous release for most all older (NON-Profession or NON-Enhanced) Sarix models was referenced with an "A" at the beginning. If you see an "A" then you have original/initial release of hardware inside the Sarix based camera and there may be a need to have this camera's hardware upgraded (depending on circumstances).
