GTO Keypad Controller - History of Revisions

Versions 3.06 of the keypad and above are major upgrades incorporating many suggestions offered by our customers.
Version 3.09 was the first upgrade available for internet download.
Version 3.20 was the first version to allow internet downloading of the database.

Many of the major features require version "C" or later (chips for 400 and 600E mounts shipped after February 16, 2000 have a "K" designation as part of the version number. i.e. "KC") of the micro-controller chip in the GTO Control Box (refer the section "Functions of the GTO Servo Control Box and GTO Keypad").

You can check the version number of your chip by removing the cover of the GTO control box. The version number and the date will be written on the label of one of the micro-controller chips along with the date. Chips issued prior to January 22, 2001, are NOT "C" version chips. Some early chips may not have a date written on them at all. Please read the order information if you need to replace your chip.
