MobileCollect Wireless Firmware & Software Updates

The current updates available for MobileCollect are shown in the table below.  If you update Mobile Modules that currently contain firmware version 2.55 or earlier, you may also have to update your Bases and Setup Program.  Please refer to the MobileCollect Versions & Updates document for more information

Most MobileCollect products currently shipping use the RM2.4 Radio Module designed by MicroRidge.  Prior to the RM2.4 Radio Module, MobileCollect used the ATZB Radio Module manufactured by Atmel.  The transition from the ATZB to the RM2.4 Radio Module in MobileCollect products began in January 2016.  All MobileCollect products containing the RM2.4 and ATZB Radio Modules are compatible with each other.  Products containing the RM2.4 Radio Module display the logo shown below on the product label.
