Firmware Download and Installation Instructions for the Quantum FaroArm/ScanArm and Gage

Overview

Note: When your FaroArm is serviced, the latest firmware is installed. Service updates may also require downloading the latest driver. So, plan to download and install the driver BEFORE you use this device.

WARNING: Downloading firmware from a source other than explicitly provided by FARO may void your warranty and cause damage to your FaroArm.

What is New

Improvements Include:

  • Bug Fix- Issue addressed where 8-Axis would require a reboot if an intermittent error appeared after the 8-axis encoder was referenced.

Who Needs This Upgrade

If your FaroArm was serviced by FARO after Feb 2020, the latest firmware was installed by the service technician. Check the firmware version number to be sure you have the latest.

 

Installation Instructions

  1. Make sure the FaroArm's battery is fully charged and that the power supply is plugged into an electrical power socket. Do the same for the computer you use to run the installation file. This way, if there is a power outage the update will not be interrupted.
  2. Attach the FaroArm to the computer using a USB cable.
  3. Turn on the FaroArm and the computer. Make sure that all applications are closed and nothing is communicating with the FaroArm.
  4. Click the link below to download the latest firmware file to your PC.
