Retrieving the firmware version
The firmware version of the MTi can be retrieved in multiple ways:
- In config mode, request the firmware version using the command ReqFWRev (0xFA 0xFF 0x12 0x00 0xEF). The firmware version is returned, see below (this MTi has FW revision 1.4.1).
- In MT Manager navigate to MT Settings (icon with the wrench). The firmware version is in the header section of the window.
- With the Firmware Updater, the firmware version is checked before updating and is displayed in a table.
Using the firmware revision
The firmware revision can be used to find what changes have been made since the last update. See the Xsens software support page for release notes of the various firmware updates.
When the MTi starts up in Config Mode only, there can be something wrong with the firmware. When the firmware version starts with 255, e.g. 255.0.6, the MTi is in boot loader mode. Try the following:
- Power cycle
- Firmware Update
If this is still unsuccessful, contact Xsens support.
