Confirming Oscilloscope and PC Communication

  1. Connect the oscilloscope to the PC with the USB mini cable that was provided with the oscilloscope.
  2. The PC should acknowledge that a USB device has been connected.
  3. Use the PC Device Manager to determine the assigned COM port. Note the actual COM port number; you will need it in the firmware installation procedure. This step also confirms that the oscilloscope can communicate with the PC.

Use the PC Device Manager to identify the oscilloscope COM port (the actual USB port may be different than the one shown above).

Firmware Installation

  1. Go to the folder where you stored the new firmware and run the firmware update application by selection of FlashTool.exe.
  2. After the software upgrade starts, go to the "Com port" pull-down menu and select the specified address that was identified using the PC Device Manager.
