Firmware Download for Laser Line Probe (LLP)

FARO LLP Icon

Overview

The Laser Line Probe (LLP) on your FaroArm® works best with the latest LLP firmware. Just download the firmware and follow the instructions in this article.

Before you install firmware, make sure you have the latest FaroArm® driver and firmware for your FaroArm, ScanArm®, or Design ScanArm model. Refer to the See Also links.

CAUTION: If you are using an FAROBlu HD or HD, you must contact FARO Support to send your LLP or Design ScanArm in to a service center so a technician can upgrade the firmware for you. You cannot do this yourself.

If you sent your LLP, ScanArm, or Design ScanArm to a service center after the firmware release date for your LLP model mentioned in the table above, the service center installed the latest firmware for you.

Check LLP Firmware Version

There are several ways to check the LLP firmware version depending on what software you use. The most common way is to use the FaroArm Manager, but you can also check the LLP firmware using CAM2 2018 or later and Measure 10. 

FaroArm Manager

If you have installed the FaroArm driver version 6.x.x.x or later, you have access to the FaroArm Manager. This tool is installed with the driver on all computers you use  with your FaroArm. The FaroArm Manager enables you to quickly change FaroArm and LLP settings without opening other software. 

  1. Connect your FaroArm with attached LLP to the computer using the USB cable.
  2. Turn on the computer and the FaroArm. Make sure that all applications are closed and nothing is communicating with the FaroArm and LLP. 
  3. From the Microsoft Windows Start icon, click All Apps or All Programs FARO FaroArm Manager. The FaroArm Manager Home panel appears.
