New DSP Family Firmware

This firmware is appropriate for most users, but some MSOs have different update policies in place. In some cases, the standard firmware may render certain test functions inoperable. Please contact your manager before updating your firmware.  For assistance with any installation, please call tech support at (800) 344-2412.

 

Free firmware updates are available for the New DSP Family of meters and can be directly downloaded to your meter using one of the following methods:

  • Unmanaged Web Update – Trilithic's In-House Firmware Update Server (newest version always available)
  • Managed Web Update – Your company's ViewPoint Server (latest approved version available)
  • FTP Download/Memory Stick – Contact Trilithic Applications Engineering Support via email for a manual download link
