Updating your ProCheck firmware

Updating your ProCheck firmware

A note on updating your ProCheck:

In August of 2012, METER made hardware changes to the ProCheck device, which added some new capabilities to the device.  These include:

  • On-the-go statistical calculations
  • The ability to read additional sensors, including ES-2, VP-3, VP-4, SRS, REC-1, CTD+DG, Apogee SI-4xx IRT’s, and UMS T8 sensors.
  • Additional onboard storage

ProCheck devices purchased after August of 2012 automatically have these capabilities.  ProCheck devices purchased before August of 2012 will require both a firmware and hardware update to utilize the new capabilities.  To determine if your ProCheck contains the new hardware, ensure that the firmware version (found in the About menu) has “1.50C” or higher at the end. Newer ProCheck devices can upgrade to our latest firmware found below:

If your ProCheck firmware version ends in a “B” or lower, then firmware version 1.38 will be the highest version that you can update.  If the sensor you wish to read with your ProCheck is not on this list, you will need to upgrade your ProCheck.  Contact METER sales or your local sales representative to upgrade your old ProCheck.
