What is a IFW file?

Ifw file extension has INTUS Firmware file type, developed by PCS Systemtechnik, which is associated with the "system files" category.

Firmware files for INTUS terminals that are used for data collection, timecard management, and access control have this extension attached to them. .IFW files are needed to perform firmware updates on terminals with the help of the INTUS RemoteConf software. However, older versions of INTUS RemoteSetup software (INTUS 5300, 3450, 3100, and earlier) cannot recognize IFW files, thus cannot update INTUS Terminals. IFW files must be processed using RemoteConf software (INTUS 5500, 5600). 

To learn how you can open the given file, read the information below.
