iButton Obsolescence


As of March 2022, iButtons are no longer being used in consoles with software version 10.C or later. The software
features will be stored directly on the CPU Boards. The CPU Boards will still have a socket for the iButton but will have a “NOT USED” decal included (see image below).
IMPORTANT: The iButton is still needed for consoles with software version 10.B or prior.

Migrating a TLS-450 to a TLS-450PLUS Console

Migration kits are no longer available for purchase. Last time buy was December 31, 2021. However, if you have a migration kit, follow these steps to migrate a TLS-450 to a TLS-450PLUS console.

1. Create a backup of the TLS-450 using the thumb drive provided in the kit.
2. Install the new CPU and SD card.

IMPORTANT: Do not move iButton to the new CPU.

3. Restore the TLS-450 back-up into the TLS-450PLUS.

Note: In some circumstances, a “Media Access Error” may occur but will clear once the database restore is complete.
