1 I have a CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011) and no SW6000 Software.

Can I use SW6000 Software?

No, the current version of SW6000 does not support CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011).

You need to replace the CU with a DIS-CCU, buy a software license and install the latest SW6000 version.

I have a CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011) and SW6000 v5.8.122 (or a previous version).

Can I upgrade to SW6000 v6.3.34.26, which is the latest version supporting CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011)?


No, SW6000 version v6.3.34.26 is only available for maintenance for customers with a CU 6005, CU 6010 or CU 6011 using SW6000 version 6.0 or later version

I have a CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011) and SW 6000 v6.0 or later (up to v6.3.34.16).

Can I upgrade to latest version of SW6000?


No, the latest version of SW6000 does not support CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011).

But a free maintenance upgrade is available for download (v6.3.34.26). However development of new features for the CU 6005 (or CU 6010, 6011) has stopped and new SW6000 versions will not support those CU's.

Can I upgrade to latest version of SW6000 if I replace the CU with a DIS-CCU Central Unit?


Yes, if you replace the CU with a DIS-CCU Central Unit you can upgrade to the latest version of SW6000 without any new license file.

And it is really advised to replace the CU with a DIS-CCU to get to latest CU platform which has a lot of new features compared to old CU’s as well as significant performance advantages when using SW6000 due to Ethernet TCP/IP connectivity.
