    11= BH8-262 Firmware Update =
    2 The !BarrettHand™ firmware resides on board the electronics located inside the hand.  BH8-262 hand firmware is stored in RAM that receives its power from the Power Supply when the system is turned on and from an embedded super capacitor when powered down.  This super capacitor is designed to maintain the firmware in RAM for two days.  However, especially in humid weather, the memory will begin to degrade after two days and eventually will be cleared.  Since degraded memory may result in erratic control, please reload firmware if the hand has been turned off for several days.  When the firmware has been cleared or degraded, it will need to be reinstalled.  BH8-280 hands have firmware stored in flash and uploading firmware should only need to be done if upgrading to a newer firmware version.  The latest version of firmware should be uploaded to the hand whenever new software is installed on the host computer to ensure proper operation.
