Firmware Archives

The following sections contain the firmware files for various Guidance controllers. Only firmware compatible with your controller model should used for upgrades. You can view your current firmware version from the web interface by selecting Control Panels > System Information > System Console > FPGA Show. See the Controller Software FAQ for instructions about upgrading. If your current firmware does not correspond to any of the firmware shown below, contact Brooks support for assistance before upgrading.

The bolded items show differences between compatible firmware files.
