Our R&D team is constantly working on improving our airbag products, to incorporate users and professionals feed-back in terrain.
Here you can find the latest software update for all Alpride E1 airbag system as well as FAQs about software update, the software update is free of charge.
The new software version 1.11 (january 2022), provides the following improvements:
The LED in Stand-by mode is blinking 1 x each 10 seconds instead 1 x each 3 seconds.
The LED in charge mode is blinking 4 x per second instead 2 x per second.
With the new software version:
The E1 software update is drastically reducing the opportunity for a transceiver in “SEARCH” mode to associate the E1 proximity interferences (50-30 cm distance from beacon) with a ghost signal (additional buried subject).
Proximity interferences for a transceiver in “SEARCH” mode, in certain conditions, are still possible closer than 30-20 cm from beacon (as any electronic device) but the transceiver should not hold the proximity interference as a ghost signal, or only during few seconds, not as permanent additional buried subject (holding time depends on transceiver type).
The E1 is meeting all the CE/FCC norm and LED signal is far from the transceiver signal norm (tested and certified in laboratory). The E1 don’t broadcast at 457 KHz (transceiver signal) and will never interfere or disturb a transceiver signal in SEND or SEARCH mode.
The E1 proximity interferences are equivalent as any other electronic system, cell phone, camera, GPS, smart watch etc… please check your transceiver user manual for proximity electronic interferences.
