Windows power settings can contribute to connectivity and performance issues when connecting to the FaroArm via a mobile PC. To ensure a successfully and reliable connection confirm the setting as outlined below.

  1. Ensure the laptop is on AC power, not battery.
  2. Ensure the Windows Systems on the laptop is optimized for “Best Performance”
    1. In Windows 10, go to Control Panel > Power Options or search for “choose a power plan”
    2. Ensure “Balanced (recommended)” is selected.
    3. Go to the taskbar and in the bottom right hand corner, click the battery icon.
    4. Set the slider bar toggle to “Best performance”

  1. Connect the FaroArm to the PC via an USB connection.
  2. Open the FaroArm Manger utility and click on Network Configuration.
  3. On the Network Configuration screen toggle the On/Off slider to On.
Indicators only
