This upgraded on-board software includes bug fixes and features that make it easier to get your job done quickly. This article shows you how to download and install the latest versions of this software.

After receiving your FARO Edge back from factory servicing or recalibration, the factory provides the most recent hardware improvements.

But, when your FARO Edge comes back to you, plan to download and install the latest driver BEFORE you use the device. The new factory improvements may require the latest driver.

Install the USB FaroArm Driver

  1. Visit the link above and download the appropriate USB FaroArm driver for your 32- or 64-bit operating system.
  2. Uninstall any existing drivers on your computer using the Microsoft Windows Add/Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel.
  3. Run the executable file from your computer.
  4. After updating the USB FaroArm driver, check for communication. If your computer can communicate with the FARO Edge, you do not have to install new firmware.

Install the Firmware

  1. Download the EdgeFirmwareUpdate.zip.
  2. Unzip the files to an empty folder on the host computer.
  3. Attach the FARO Edge to the host computer using USB.
  4. Power on the FARO Edge.
  5. Run FaroUpdate.XXX.exe. Do not turn off the FARO Edge while the program is running.

Install the Kiosk Software

  2. Place the *.exe file on a USB drive.
  3. Insert the USB drive into the port on the left side of the fold-down touch screen controller.
  4. On the Main menu, touch Settings > Update Software.
  5. Notice the existing software version and the new software version on the USB driver to make sure they are different.
  6. Touch the button to update the system.
