Vous devez connecter ensuite l’interface USB du convertisseur  au PC avec Windows 7, 8 or 10 et installer le driver.

  • Installing drivers for the Seeeduino with window7

Download : arduino-1.6.8-windows.exe

Plug in your board and wait for Windows to begin its driver installation process. After a few moments, the process will fail.

Open the Device Manager by right clicking “My computer” and selecting control panel.

Look under Ports (COM & LPT). You should see an open port named “USB Serial Port” Right click on the “USB Serial Port” and choose the “Update Driver Software” option.

Sample driver input directory : C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\drivers\FTDI USB Drivers\amd64

  • Installing drivers for the Seeeduino with window8 or windows10

HOWTO here : Installing_drivers_for_the_Seeeduino_with_window8

You should save these files which you are editing before installing driver with window8,because there will several power off during operating.

  1. Press “Windows Key” +”R”
  2. Enter shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00

Exécution de la mise à jour du firmware :

Lorsque votre convertisseur est bien reconnu par Windows sur un port COM vous devez exécuter la procédure du chapitre

Appendix A How to update the Converter’s firmware

en utilisant le guide  Quick-Start-Guide.pdf

Pour cela vous devez télécharger l’archive frsky_telemetry.zip

Xloader.exe se trouve dans l’archive ici : \frsky_telemetry\Firmware\XLoader

Sélectionner comme Device : Duemilanove/Nano(ATmega328) et frsky_telemetry.hex ici : \frsky_telemetry\Firmware

Ensuite mette à jour la télémetrie screen1 et screen2  dans le répertore  SCRIPTS/TELEMETRY avec les fichiers telem1.lua et  telem2.lua depuis\frsky_telemetry\Lua\2.1.X

Enfin faite une recouverte des capteurs pour la télémétrie sur la radio Taranis .

 Executing the firmware update:

Once your converter is recognized by Windows on a port COM,  you need to run the chapter of procedure :

Appendix A How to update the firmware’s Converter

using the Quick-Start-Guide Guide.pdf

For this you must download the archive frsky_telemetry.zip

Xloader.exe is in the archive here: \frsky_telemetry\Firmware\XLoader

Select Device : Duemilanove/Nano(ATmega328) and frsky_telemetry.hex here: \frsky_telemetry\Firmware

Update your telemetry screen1 and screen2  in  SCRIPTS/TELEMETRY directory with files  telem1.lua and telem2.lua from \frsky_telemetry\Lua\2.1.X

Finaly rediscover your telemetry sensors on Taranis Radio.
