Article available in these languages: Spanish


Please be advised that during a firmware upgrade to version apc_hw02_aos357_g2ats357.exe, apc_hw02_aos374_g2ats370.exe, apc_hw02_aos374_g2ats371.exe, apc_hw02_aos390_g2ats390.exe, apc_hw02_aos390_g2ats392.exe, apc_hw02_aos392_g2ats392.exe, or apc_hw02_aos394_g2ats393.exe if you have a load attached to the ATS, there is a probability to permanently damage the Rack ATS. The ATS will begin to switch sources back and forth and this will cause permanent damage to your ATS as well as drop any loads connected downstream of the ATS.

2.) Remove ALL connected loads to the ATS and apply the firmware update using the instructions below.

Please refer to the attachment below for the firmware update procedure. Failure to follow these instructions could lead to permanent damage on the Rack ATS product.
