Downloading new or updated firmware, GUI programs, drivers and application notes for Maxon products just got a lot easier!
Customers can simply point their web browser at:http://support.maxon.com.au/download
Here you will find a list of modem models, including a ‘Legacy’ option for end-of-life and no-longer-supported products and a ”Services” option for Maxon supplied value added services.
Enter the appropriate folder for the modem you want updates for and you will find another series of folders appropriately named – for example in the “Intellimax+ - MA-2020” folder you will find the following folders:
Each one contains the appropriate files – eg. in the “Applications Notes” folder of Intellimax+ - MA-2020 you will find Intellimax+ Modem Emulation V 4.1.pdf which explains the setup and operation of the modem emulation function.
Because these files can be updated directly by the support staff at Maxon, we can add to this at any time. So if you can’t find something and call the support staff, we can add it during the phone call! We may also provide you with a link to an unbrowsable folder on the same server if we need to send you confidential information or advanced/customised versions of firmware for you to evaluate or test.
While this is currently far from a complete list of all documents we have, it does have the majority of frequently requested files – and as above, we can add to it easily, so the contents will grow over time. Currently, there is over 500MB in more than 180 files/folders on this server to download/browse.
We hope you find this a useful resource!
