LJ-X8000E/LJ-X8002(2D mode) Firmware Update Method

Update Method
  1. Download the update file from the Keyence homepage.

    [Notice] Update file for 3D mode is not available for 2D mode.

    An SD card(CA-SD16G/CA-SD4G/CA-SD1G/OP-87133) is needed to perform the update.
    Please make sure to use an official SD card.
    If you do not possess an official SD card, you can also take out and use the SD card from the SD1 slot of the controller. If you use an SD card that is not official, the update may fail or it may become impossible to start up the controller.

  2. Copy the file with the extension .upd to the root folder (highest layer) of the SD card.

    [Notice] Don’t place any other .upd file in the root folder.

    [Reference] If there are other files except the .upd file in the root folder, the update is available.

  3. If the application mode is 2D mode, turn off the controller. Then insert the SD card from step 2 into the SD2 slot. Turn on the controller.

  4. Check that the following screen is displayed after the regular start-up screen is displayed.
    The numerical values applicable at the time of the update will be shown in the parts of the screen represented with **** and ++++.

    Check that the target update shows the name of the file prepared in step 1 and then press the [Execute] button. The [Cancel] button can be used to cancel the procedure.
    Please do not turn off the power or remove the SD card while the update process is ongoing.
    When [Execute] is pressed, the controller will perform the firmware update.

  5. If the update is completed properly, the following message is displayed.

    When you remove the SD card from the SD2 slot and press [Reboot], the controller will restart and it can be used in the new version.
