iMist2: Checking Controller Compatibility

1.  Confirm the controller firmware version.

  • Cycle power to the misting unit and observe controller startup display.
  • The fourth item displayed will be the current version of firmware on the controller.
  • For any Gen 1.3 or Gen 3 to be compatible with iMist2, the firmware must contain “PR” followed by a 3 digit number. This is the latest firmware version we have released for controllers.
  • If you do not have a “PR” version of the firmware, you can send your controller to MistAway for a firmware upgrade.

2.  Confirm the controller’s serial port.

  • The controller must have a serial port on the back panel, as this is where the iMist2 receiver is connected.
  • If your controller does not have a serial port on the back panel, it will have to be replaced for iMist2 compatibility.
