ALIF: Where do I find the Firmware Version

AIM Manager

The firmware version is displayed on a couple of locations on its web interface. In the top right-hand side and at the bottom of each of the pages. The number shown at the bottom of the page shows the full firmware version. This is important as we may release a hotfix version, where only the last few digits will change, but the major and minor numbers remain the same.

Transmitters and Receivers

There are different ways of finding the firmware version on the endpoints (Transmitters and Receivers), the methods depend on how they are being utilised. An endpoint can be used in either a point to point mode, where the transmitter and receivers are directly connected or under the control of an AIM Manager in a matrix.

Using the Endpoint Web Interface

Models: ALFI100T/R, ALIF1000T/R, ALIF1002T/R, ALIF2000R, ALIF2002T, ALIF2020T/R, ALIF2112T & ALIF3000R

Please read the Accessing an Endpoint Directly page for instructions on how to connect to a transmitter and recevier.

  • Open the endpoints web interface.
  • Navigate to the About menu.
