Advanced Detection Firmware Helps Increase Data Rates and Decrease Downtime

We’re excited to announce that new Advanced Detection Firmware is now available for Bench Tree’s BTR-W, BTR-Cw and BTR-Touch products. The Firmware is standard in new builds and will be available for upgrade on existing technology. The detection algorithms improve decoding in harsh and noisy environments, while enabling increased data rates by reliably decoding shortened pulse widths.

Benefits of the Advanced Detection Firmware include:

  • Increased data rates up to 2.0 bits per second
  • Reduced missed decodes by improving detection
  • Eliminated downtime trouble shooting detection issues
  • Improved log quality with fast and accurate decoding
