Updating your CertiFiber Pro (Versiv)

This article describes the update process for a Versiv Main and Remote unit. Once the Main unit is updated, any OptiFiber Pro, CertiFiber Pro, or DSX CableAnalyzer module that is inserted into it will automatically be updated as well (this only takes a few seconds). Note that in the case of OptiFiber Pro modules, no Versiv Remote unit is used, so the steps for updating the Remote unit may be ignored if you are only using OptiFiber Pro.

Si usa LinkWare Live, cuando SINCRONICE en su cuenta, LinkWare Live lo alertará cuando haya una actualización disponible.  Siga las instrucciones de la pantalla para actualizar la unidad principal Versiv, luego conecte un cable USB de la unidad principal Versiv al control remoto Versiv y envíe la actualización.  

Updating may also be done following the process described below.

Download the Versiv firmware file found here. The latest LinkWare PC software file is also included with the firmware download.

Haga clic en el enlace de descarga y observe dónde se guarda el archivo en su PC, ya que tendrá que apuntar a él desde LinkWare PC para iniciar la actualización.  Si está usando una versión anterior de LinkWare PC, su primer paso es actualizar LinkWare PC.

  • Make sure your battery is sufficiently charged; if in doubt, connect the power to your Versiv Main unit
  • Abra LinkWare PC10,5
  • Connect the Versiv/TFS Main to your PC using a Micro USB cord that came with your test set

Haga clic en el icono de actualización de software del comprobador conectado

  • Localice el archivo que descargó y haga clic en Open (Abrir) en la parte inferior del cuadro de diálogo.
  • This will send the update file to the Versiv Main unit, which takes around 5-10 minutes.
    No necesita actualizar el módulo: Versiv almacena el firmware necesario para realizar cualquier actualización del módulo automáticamente.
    LinkWare PC le informará de lo que está sucediendo durante la actualización.

The Versiv Main unit will display a message stating that it is "Under PC Control."

La pantalla Versiv mostrará una barra de progreso amarilla y azul en la parte inferior de la pantalla y emitirá un sonido de pitido débil mientras la actualización está progresando. 

Este proceso tarda entre 5 a 10 minutos, y la unidad principal Versiv se reiniciará cuando el proceso esté completo. 

The Versiv Main will display a message stating that you MUST update your Remote tester for compatibility.

Toque OK (Aceptar).

NOTE:  These steps for upgrading the Versiv Remote applies for DSX-5000, DSX-8000 and CertiFiber Pro only; NOT for OptiFiber Pro or FI-7000 where no remote unit is used


Conecte la unidad principal Versiv a la unidad remota Versiv con el cable USB y espere un momento. 

La unidad principal Versiv le alertará de una versión de desajuste.

Toque Continue (Continuar) y conecte como se muestra.

Toque UPDATE (Actualizar)

The Versiv Main prepares the update and then shows status of the update file being copied to the Remote.

The Versiv Main will display a message stating that the update file was transferred successfully to the Remote; Tap OK.

The Versiv Remote will automatically start installing the update file, progess is indicated by the LEDs blinking from top (PASS) to bottom (LOW BATTERY).

Once the install is complete, the remote will reboot itself and all of the lights should be off (except for the power indicator).


If you are updating multiple test sets, you do not need to connect each unit to the PC to push the update

Do you have multiple Versiv sets to update? If you update one Versiv main unit and it's companion remote, you can then take the updated Versiv main unit and connect it to another Versiv main unit with a prior software version in order update it. Connect the Type A (larger) USB connector to the already updated Versiv main unit and the Micro-B USB connector to the Versiv main unit in need of an update, wait 10 seconds, and you will be prompted to update the Versiv main unit that is running older software. It will call it a "remote", but that is OK - it will get the update it needs. Follow the on-screen instructions to send the update over the USB cable connection. The update file first gets transferred, then installed, then the newly updated unit will reboot itself. After the main unit updates, swap the USB cable ends to connect the updated Versiv main unit to its companion remote unit. Wait 10 seconds and you will be prompted to update the Versiv remote, which is running an older version of software. Tap Continue and complete the update.

If you have a mix of Versiv and Versiv2 main and remote units, remember that for updating and testing compatibility, you need to ensure that Versiv main units go with Versiv remotes and Versiv2 main units go with Versiv2 remotes.

Update February 2020: Update to version 6,5 or later and you can use Versiv and Versiv2 units together to run tests.

Versiv2 units have built-in wireless capability, Versiv units use a TP-Link wifi adapter for wireless capability. Look at the top right part of the front of the case on Versiv main and remote to determine which model you have.
