The D20MX is available with two different SGConfig firmware options:
The SAN0001 option contains the latest versions of all applications and should be
used in all new configurations.
The SAN0002 option contains previous versions of Mailbox DTA and DNP V3.00 DPA.
This allows for seamless migration from older D20ME firmware.
The actual firmware on the D20MX supports both SGConfig firmware options. Accordingly,
there is no need to perform a firmware transfer to change the D20MX firmware when
changing between SGConfig firmware options.
See section: "D20MX applications" on page 16 for a list of the automation applications
provided with these two firmware options.
The D20MX firmware's ability to support multiple SGConfig firmware options is being
provided in release 1.0, but is not expected to be continued in future releases.
