The X26 internal software provides functionality for all aspects of the ECD. The software can be upgraded to the most recent version through a DPM or XDPM battery pack, or TASER CAM™ recorder. Each DPM battery pack contains a copy of the weapon software. When the DPM battery pack is first inserted in the X26 ECD, the logic will compare the software version in the weapon with the software version in the DPM. If the DPM battery pack contains a newer version, the software will automatically be uploaded into the X26 ECD. During the uploading, the CID will display a “P.” When uploading is complete, the CID will display the boot-up sequence. The last number in the sequence is the new software version. The programming process takes approximately 10 seconds.
DO NOT remove the DPM battery pack or move the safety switch to the up (ARMED) position during the software programming cycle. This will result in corruption of the data and the X26 ECD will have to be returned to the factory for reprogramming.
You can always install a previous version DPM in the ECD. The software will not program the X26 ECD to an older version and the weapon will remain at the higher of the software versions in the ECD or in the DPM.
