How can I update my K2000 series unit operating system?
The K2000 series stemmed from technology that used physical EPROMs for its upgrades, not downloadable flash ROM files. This means, to update the unit you would need to take it to an Authorized KMS Service Center and they could order the parts and perform the update for you. The last version of OS for the K2000 was v3.87.
To find out what version you have now, watch the display when you power up the instrument.
Note: There are 2 different versions of the engine board and operating system - Calvin and Janis. If there is a "J" after the version number in the display, you have a Janis unit, if there is no letter after the number, you have a Calvin unit. Make sure to tell the service center which version you have when you order the upgrade.
If you are upgrading from a version previous to v3.01, make sure to download the version 3 addendum manual as well (available under K2000 Downloads online)
Please note that updating directly from version 1 of the operating system requires the additional purchase of new Setup EPROMs, which are not included with the operating system update.
(Authorized Service Centers: OS and Object EPROM pattern files are available from your local distributor on request.)
Here is a quick rundown of the features added in v3.87 (relative to v3.54):
