ANABAT SWIFT

You can update the firmware on your Anabat Swift using an SD card or a USB cable

Method 1 - Using an SD Card

Your Anabat Swift is easily updated using an SD card. Simply download the update file using this link and copy it to the root directly on an SD card. Make sure the file is named swift.adx. Alternatively, you can set up the SD card directly using Anabat Insight by selecting ‘Toolbox’ from the Devices menu, under ‘Set up SD for’ choose ‘Swift’, then click on the Updates tab on the left of Toolbox (Update symbol ). You can use the same SD card to update multiple Swifts.

  1. Insert the SD card and fresh batteries into your Swift then power it on. Ensure there isn’t a second SD card in the Swift. After a short time a message will appear: “Swift update x.x available. Would you like to update?“. Press the “Yes” to start the update. Do not remove the batteries or power off the detector while the update is being installed. The recording mode LEDs will flash in sequence while the update is being installed.
  2. If the update message doesn’t appear after inserting the SD card your Swift may already have the latest version installed or the file wasn’t found on the SD card. Check your currently installed firmware version in the Status screen on your Swift to see if it is the latest version. Alternatively, your Swift may have a very old firmware version that does not support SD card updates. If this is the case you will need to follow Method 2 below.
  3. Once the flashing is complete, your Swift will restart with the new firmware. You may get a message about a new “bootloader available“, if so please proceed with this update by pressing on the “Upgrade” button.
  4. You can now delete the Swift.adx file from the SD card or use the card again to update other Swifts.

Please note: You will need to remove the update file from the SD card to use the card for detector recording.

Method 2 - Using a USB cable
