LA101: Determining firmware version and engineering revision level
How can I determine the firmware version and the engineering revision level?
eference is frequently made to the firmware version or the engineering revision level in the operating instructions and other documentation.
- During the start-up sequence, the hardware and software release versions appear briefly (for about 1 second) at the display.
Example: “rEL” “02.004”, where “02”stands for the hardware version and “004” for the software version.
- As long as the device is switched on, a corresponding display can be accessed via the menu:
[MENU] “SEtUP dEViCE”, [<] “AUX”, [ENTER] “InFo”, [>] “VErSi”, [ENTER] “rEL” “02.004”
- The hardware and firmware versions can be queried via the interface using the “*IDN?” interrogation command.
- If the Soft Front Panel (SFP) is used for the SYSKON KONSTANTER, the hardware and software release versions are displayed automatically in the “SYSTEM” window.
