The i-station is capable of operating on Matrix +3 systems running software/firmware versions 2.3.7 or higher up to version 2.4.1 (the i-station wasn’t released into production until Matrix +3 PGM-WIN version 2.3.7 was available).
The i-station is not capable of operating on Matrix +3 platforms running version 2.3.0 or lower, the i-station port function in these versions of PGM-WIN doesn’t exist for this station type nor does a panel programming screen mimic. The firmware updater for Matrix +3 version 2.3.0 doesn't contain a firmware file or listing for the I-station.
If the user were to plug an i-station with 2.3.7 or 2.4.1 firmware into a 2.3.0 system the i-station will display an incompatible firmware version message on it's display modules.
I-station panels running on a MTX+3 frame can be upgraded to work on Eclipse matrices
