It may be necessary to update the firmware of an interface from time to time. CMA occasionally releases improved firmware versions to improve an interface’s interaction with the computer, a tablet or one or more sensors. To update an interface, it needs to be connected to a desktop or laptop and Coach 7 needs to be started.
For some interfaces Coach 7 is able to automatically detect if an update is available. You will receive a notice about a possible update when initialising the interface for a measurement activity. Simply agree to update the interface and Coach 7 will perform the update. After a few moments the interface is ready and you can continue with the measurement.
Other interfaces need to be updated manually. Start Coach 7 in Author mode and select “Tools” in the menu at the top of the screen. Select “Firmware update”. A new window will open. Select the interface that is connected to the computer that you want to update and select the most recent firmware version. Perform the update and then continue as planned.
