Overview

The LLP on your Edge FaroArm or ScanArm works best when it uses the latest LLP firmware. Upgraded firmware includes bug fixes and features that make it easier to get your job done quickly. This article shows you how to upgrade your LLP firmware to latest version.

You can upgrade the firmware for the LLP or LLP ES yourself. Just download the firmware and follow the instructions in this article. But, if you are using an LLP HD, you must contact FARO Support to send your LLP in to a FARO factory service center so a FARO technician can upgrade the firmware for you. You cannot do this yourself.

After receiving your LLP back from factory servicing or recalibration, the factory provides the most recent hardware improvements and installs the latest firmware for you.
