How to update the firmware

Download the firmware

The firmware image is available on the ifm.com website. Navigate to the site and follow the steps below:

  • Create an account (if you do not already have one) and log in.

  • Use the search bar to find OVP800 (VPU). This is also valid if you have a sample unit like M03975 or M04239.

  • Navigate to the article page an click on the “Downloads” tab.

  • Select the firmware from the list. It will start downloading the file.

With the web interface

  1. Open http://192.168.0.69:8080/ in web browser. The SWUpdate web interface is shown.

  2. Drag and drop the *.swu firmware file into the software update-window. The upload procedure starts.

With ifm3d

In the instructions below, replace firmware_image.swu with the name of the firmware file you downloaded from ifm.com. We assume you are running these commands from the folders in which the .swu file is located.

$ ifm3d swupdate < firmware_image.swu
