Checking the Firmware Version of your Device
The SWEEP VISUALIZER application makes it easy to check the firmware version of your device. As long as you're connected to the internet, the application will compare the installed firmware version to the latest release, and a popup will notify you if an updated firmware is available. Alternatively, transmitting a "Version Info" command to a connected device will display details about the installed firmware version, which you can check against the latest release listed on the Scanse website.
Obtaining Firmware Files
Firmware files (including previous versions) can be downloaded directly from http://scanse.io/downloads
Updating the Firmware
**NOTE: Only 1 firmware installation can be performed per open instance of the SWEEP VISUALIZER application. There is a known bug that prevents a successful firmware installation on subsequent attempts using the same open instance of the application. To prevent users from accidentally encountering this error, the application will not allow more than 1 firmware installation until the application is restarted. You must close and reopen the application to perform a subsequent installation. It does not matter if the installation is being performed on the same device, or a different device. Simply restart the visualizer between installations. This will be fixed in a future version of the SWEEP VISUALIZER.
The process for installing newer or older versions of firmware is the same.
1. Download the firmware file you wish to install, and save it somewhere you'll remember.
2. Close any running instance of the SWEEP VISUALIZER application.
3. Make sure the sweep device is plugged in and open a fresh instance of the SWEEP VISUALIZER application.
4. From the "Device" tab, connect to the device and then disconnect from the device. The bootloader requires some information about the device that is acquired after connecting. Therefore the "Update Firmware" button will not be presented until the application has connected and disconnected from the device.
5. After disconnecting from the device, the application should present the "Update Firmware" button. Press it. This will open a file browser.
5. In the file browser, navigate to the location where you saved the downloaded firmware file, and select the firmware file.
6. The firmware update should begin automatically. An update takes around 90 seconds on a desktop computer. You can track the progress on the progress bar.
**Note: While the firmware is uploading, do not disconnect the device or attempt to use other features of the SweepVisualizer application.
7. When the update is complete, the device will reset automatically. A green popup will indicate a successful firmware update.
