VIGILANT™ Software Update

Introduction

The VIGILANT Battery Monitoring system receives periodic updates which can be installed by the end user. Updates are installed on the VIGILANT Monitor via the Web-Interface. As of version 1.3.11, each system must be updated directly on the web-interface sequentially. This means if updating from 1.3.8 to 1.3.11, you must first update from 1.3.8 through 1.3.10 first.

Eagle Eye Power Solutions also offers a service to perform updates. If interested, please request a quote.
