Modes of operation

IP500V2 control units are supplied with no installed firmware or configuration. When first powered up, the control unit loads and installs the necessary firmware from the system SD card installed in it. It creates a default configuration matching the card installed in the control unit and external expansion modules attached to it. IP500V2 control units can operate in a number of modes. The initial mode is determined by the type of system SD card.
