In most cases, you will not need to update the firmware on your Active components. The Active components you receive should work for your system without the need to update. In the event that you are advised to update your Active components, we strongly recommend doing so only under the guidance of a OptiTrack Support Engineer. Please contact support for instructions on how to update the firmware.
When you first receive your Active Tags and BaseStation they will be on firmware 1.1.0 unless otherwise setup with your Sales Engineer for very specific applications. Firmware version 1.1.0 is recommended for most applications. These will be RevG (revision G) for Active Tags and RevD for BaseStations. These should not need to be updated. Please contact support if you need assistance with your Active hardware.
If your Active hardware is older than RevG for Active Tags and RevD for BaseStations, we recommend updating to RevG and RevD respectively.
The information below is detailed information that is not intended for the average user. What you receive out of the box will work for the majority of applications based upon initial setup with a Sales Engineer.
Essentially, if an Active Tag has the same firmware as a BaseStation it will be compatible with a few exceptions. For example, if you have an Active Tag with 1.x firmware and a BaseStation with 1.x firmware, they will be compatible.
These versions are outdated and no longer supported.
