Advanced Cable Tester v2 Firmware Update v2.3.0

The Advanced Cable Tester v2 has a new firmware update, Firmware v2.3.0.

This update includes:

  • Ability to set fixed HEO/VEO values for HDMI and DP cables
  • Signal integrity enhancements
  • Ability to scan cable serial numbers for inclusion on test reports

The new scanning capability is a highly requested feature that will allow operators on the production line to scan cable barcodes, which will automatically store the cable serial number in the test report. This allows for traceability beyond the production line and makes customer support easier after the fact.  

To ensure your Advanced Cable Tester v2 is operating at optimal performance and includes these new updates, please download the latest version here.
