    1. For Windows Systems: Open MAX and expand Devices and Interfaces under the My System tab.
    2. For RT systems: From the host machine, open MAX and expand Remote Systems. Expand the target system and expand Devices and Interfaces.
  3. For the controller to be updated:
    1. Expand the Chassis tab and select the controller needing the firmware update.
    2. Click the Update Firmware button in the right pane.
    3. Navigate to and select the firmware image file saved in step 1, then click the Open button.
      • A dialog box should open containing information about the firmware image selected.
    4. Click Begin Update to confirm and start the update.
  4. Follow any additional instructions provided when the update is complete.
    • If the dialog says an issue occurred, record the error number/message and contact National Instruments.
