All LabJack devices, except the U12, have upgradable firmware. From time to time, we release a new firmware to fix any issues that are discovered or add new features. Find your device from the list below to download its firmware.
LJSelfUpgrade for upgrading using Windows
Use the latest version of LJSelfUpgrade to upgrade the firmware on Windows. In order to run, LJSelfUpgrade version 1.24 and above requires the installation of UD driver 3.15 on your system.
Python Firmware Upgrader for upgrading using Linux and Mac OS X
Linux and Mac users, or adventurous Windows users, can use a Python firmware upgrader from the list below. (Grab the correct one for your system, Python 2.7, 2.6 or 2.5.)
- Requires Internet access during programming.
- If you have UE9 Control firmware older than 1.78, you must use LJSelfUpgrade.
- If you have a U3A or U3B (hardware revisions 1.20 or 1.21), you can use the Python upgrader by manually downloading and specifying the proper firmware file (see readme file), but it is lightly tested. If you run into problems, find a Windows machine and use LJSelfUpgrade to attempt to recover as described in Section 1.2.
Warning to Linux and U6 Users: Linux with newer kernels 3.0.0 and above has problems with upgrading U6 firmware. Older kernels, such as 2.6.32, can upgrade a U6 with no issue. It is uncertain exactly what kernel version the problem starts at or if only certain distributions are affected. To be safe, upgrade U6 firmware on Mac OS X or Windows.
Man, you LabJack folks are great! ...and with fast responses! I think this will do just fine for me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!—Lew, ISB, LLC
