Flir E40 Upgrade & Configuration
« on: November 20, 2014, 03:39:47 pm »
The thread regarding the E4 camera is now nearly at 400 pages with many useful information from helpful users. I have spent about an hour reading through it, but unfortunately information about upgrading the E40 camera is rather old. I have one unit which I recently got with firmware Version 3.18.0 (E40 1.0).

If someone can post a quick instruction on this model, I would really appreciate it and I promise to report back and provide a detailed instruction with any issues I encountered.

Thank you!

Edit: Section removed as pointed to the wrong thread

You do not need to read all 400 pages. Mike put all the important links on the first page.
Basically the E40 acts the same a the E4, there is nothing special.... oh, and make a backup first!
For the first time you will need some time if you work carefully and concentrated (including backup etc. you will need 3 hours) - so make sure nobody disturbs you.

there is no point-to-click hack for the Exx

the first post from mike
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/

referenced
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/msg342072/#msg342072

and go to 19 "Resolution upgrade Flir E30/E40/E50 to E60 and i3/i5 to i7"

if you have a newer firmware/hardware, then you must help to hack it

a nice history from E30 (without WLAN)  to E60 (with WLAN)

As promised, I have been working on documenting the step-by-step procedure to upgrade the E40. I have everything figured out except for the fact that the new E40's, aren't shipped with all the files like the old firmware.

As a result, I need the files which comes with the E60 in order to be able to make the modifications.

Can someone please post their E60 files (like an image of the instrument files) and I will create a nice package for everyone who would like to do the same.

Thanks guys!

The changes are just a few parameters - look at the E4 stuff, most of it will be the same.

Thank you mikeselectricstuff and tomas123, I appreciate your responses.

On this forum, I found a template for a modified E40 config files as a guide on what I need to change on my unit. My unit's config file in directory \FlashFS\system\kits.d:


# confkit.rev
# This file contains revision information for all loaded
# files in a kit
# Do not edit

NAME userconf
VERSION E40 1.0
DATE 16-Oct-2013

But for example, the E60 file I need to replace this with looks like this:

# confkit.rev

# files in a kit
# Do not edit

The problem is that I don't have most of those files on my E40. I guess the newer firmware don't put those files in by default...

And this is my problem. Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated.

This post may be of interest: http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/msg561266/#msg561266

Thanks. The problem is that units with # ID 490xxxxx, have all the files already on the camera. The newer units don't have all the files and therefore these changes will then point to non-existing files as my previous post shows.

Older units (without MSX) are using a different software than the newer ones with MSX. Because of this, you CANNOT use the E4 (always comes with MSX) instructions here 1:1 on an older E40 (without MSX).... and vice versa.
I assume you have a newer E40 with MSX (because your confkit.rev is from Oct 2013), so you CANNOT use the E60 files from the forum, as the Exx used here, always were older ones without MSX.
The Exx files in this forum will only work on older E40 (without MSX).
If you have an older, non-MSX version (which I doubt, as the file date from October 2013 shows, you are using the newer version), look here:

Thank you Pinkus,

So the now the question is, given that I have the new E40, with serial numbers that start with 6 instead of 4, what do I do to get all the features, including pallets... I am sorry if my question seems primitive again, but I thought I had it figured out! :(

I asked for your config file!
You posted only files from this forum (best known old Exx without MSX).

We can't help you, if you don't give us your file structure.

PS: to update the resolution you need to edit only the config file (one file)

as sample the path and critical content for the old E40 (without MSX)
Code: [Select]
>type \FlashFS\system\appcore.d\config.d\conf.cfg
...
.caps.config.name text "app E40"
.caps.config.revision text "0.10"
.caps.config.image.settings.enabled bool true
.caps.config.image.settings.downsample bool true
.caps.config.image.settings.resIR int32 160
.caps.config.image.targetNoise entry
.caps.config.image.targetNoise.enabled bool true
.caps.config.image.targetNoise.targetNoiseMk int32 60
...

you can copy and edit the file (update crc), but watch for the alphabetically order !!!!
Although you can edit the file, a "safer" way is to create a second file - settings files which are alphabetically later will override any earlier ones.
Obviously it's a good idea to make backups of everything first.

Take the config file, edit the settings. Delete the CRC line and run the CRC util to create a new CRC and add it to the file.
Save that file in the same dir as the original, with a higher alphabetic name (case sensitive), e.g. e60.cfg
Then do a hard reboot


firmware differences in Exx P/N:490xx to  Exx P/N:645xx (with MSX)

old Exx (Late 2012) firmware feed:   
Last Updated: April 23, 2013:    FLIR Exx P/N:490xx (2.23.14) Update Pack
http://support.flir.com/SwDownload/app/RssSWDownload.aspx?ID=127
Code: [Select]
> dir fpg*
06.12.2011  17:23           592.029 fpga.bin
02.02.2012  17:57           797.881 fpga_c4_55.bin
06.12.2011  17:00           798.274 fpga_c55.bin
my old Exx has the sensor "SB320 ISC0601" (see /FlashFS/tmp/prod.log or "rls .image.flow.detector")

new Exx with MSX:  (Late 2013)
Last Updated: November 21, 2014: FLIR Exx P/N:645xx / 646xx (4.9.0) Update Pack
http://support.flir.com/SwDownload/app/RssSWDownload.aspx?ID=194
Code: [Select]
> dir fpg*
28.04.2014  16:26           807.922 fpga_B2CO3.bin
17.12.2013  08:18           805.703 fpga_C4_55.bin

unzip the E2qtcomb_v4.9.0.fif
Flir changed the file structure from \Flashfs\system\*.exe to \FlashBFS\system\*.exe (like the Ex)
but the path for the config file is the same

we need to see if your config file is encrypted (cfg / cfc)

PS: I listed the fpga firmware, because the MSX feature is part of fpga.
Nobody attempt to hack the old Exx (late 2012) with the newer fimware  >:D



off topic: fgpa of Ex
current E4 FW from June 12, 2014
http://support.flir.com/SwDownload/app/RssSWDownload.aspx?ID=196
contain two fpga FW

Dear tomas123,

I appreciate your thorough and detailed responses, it must be the efficient German genes! ;)

I have attached two config files from my camera. Aside from the resolution, what would be great is if I could get the other functions like the zoon and Thermal Fusion.

Do you have deleted the last line?
I need information about the CRC.

if the last line in
FlashFS/system/appcore.d/config.d/conf.cfg
begins with
Code: [Select]
CRC01 then you must only edit this two lines
Code: [Select]
.caps.config.image.settings.resIR int32 160
..
.caps.config.image.targetNoise.targetNoiseMk int32 55

to
Code: [Select]
.caps.config.image.settings.resIR int32 320
..
.caps.config.image.targetNoise.targetNoiseMk int32 0

and generate a new CRC01

use tutorial and CRC01.exe from Mike  :-+
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/msg321956/#msg321956

same good hints:
- make a backup from conf.cfg
- see the Flir E4 thread about editors and line breaks !! (notepad++ works fine)
- watch for the alphabetical order trap in folder FlashFS/system/appcore.d/config.d/  8)
    http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/msg380267/#msg380267
- test your editor and the crc01.exe:
   first remove  the last line "CRC01 xyz" (Make sure there is exactly one CRLF at the end of the file)
   and then use the crc01.exe keygen for restoring the original crc
(compare the result with known crc)
   if you habe trouble, use a hexeditor to check your CRLF
- don't copy config files from another camera to your E40

I don't know, why you have opened a new thread.
This is exact the same (generic) process several times described in this forum (editing the config and not copying  another files to the Flir camera)

you can check your loaded configuration with telnet

old Exx
Code: [Select]
> rls .registry.caps.config.image.settings
r------------- 0 root   root   <b> downsample                 false
r------------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                     true
r------------- 0 root   root   <i> resIR                        320

>rls .caps.config.image.targetNoise
enabled                     true
targetNoiseMk                  0

it's possible, that you have the new pathes like Ex
then you can search in your whole config with
Code: [Select]
rls -r -l > filename_with_path_to_your_sd_cardwait a minute until completed and open the (large) filename_with_path_to_your_sd_card in your editor


PS: some users prefer to switch off the noise generator
Code: [Select]
.caps.config.image.targetNoise.enabled bool false

Thanks. I will try this and report back. I assume also that I can get the Thermal Fusion and maximum zoom by changing the appropriate fields:

.caps.config.image.zoom.maxFactor double 2

and

.caps.config.ui.fusion.PIP.locked bool true


I have the CRC01 fields in my config files, which means they are not encrypted I guess. I will back everything up and try it.

Are the latest Firmwares encrypted? I assume that I should NOT upgrade my firmware.

I got the resolution to work!

But no Thermal Fusion... :( I thought I was changing the right field, but alas, it doesn't show up...

I also have another strange issue. I have one bad pixel on the screen (Which was there from the beginning). This pad pixel is always at the same temperature (27C) which means when I am looking at cold surfaces, my spot measurement always jumps to it as the highest temperature on the screen... Very annoying issue.

My thought was to perhaps modify the calibration file, but I am not able to open it. I know it is in some kind of image format, but I have no idea how to read it. My bad pixel is at (235,147) pixel, and I thought by adding it to the calibration file as another bad pixel, the camera will begin to ignore it and this problem would go away...

Does anyone else have this issue?

Cheers,

bad pixel:
If you want to have a quick look at the dead pixels on yooooouuuur E4, do the following:

Code: [Select]
# check for yourself that I'm not making stuff up. :P
rls .image.flow.maps.combGainDeadMap.pixReplace

# show dead pixels
rset .image.flow.maps.combGainDeadMap.pixReplace false

# hide dead pixels again (default)
rset .image.flow.maps.combGainDeadMap.pixReplace true

you can see severals clusters


you can simple readout your calibration mapping images
look for *.fff files in thread http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown
like ds250C_we_ap_fi_le_static.fff and ds250C_we_ap_fi_le_static.gan

https://www.google.de/#q=site:eevblog.com%2Fforum%2Ftestgear%2Fflir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown+ds250C_we_ap_fi_le_static

you can convert this *.fff files with exiftool to png and count your bad pixels

rls helps
see http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/?action=dlattach;attach=84060
Code: [Select]
.calib.detector.deadPixMap: (2)
rw-dr---r---np 0 root   root   <x> ds250C_we_ap_fi_le               
rw-dr---r---np 0 root   root   <x> ds_we_ap_fi_le                   

.calib.detector.deadPixMap.ds250C_we_ap_fi_le: (2)

Thanks Tomas, I'll take a look.

Still not able to get Thermal Fusion... I know I've troubled you a lot already, but do you know which field needs to change for Thermal Fusion to show up?  |O

Re: Flir E40 Upgrade & Configuration

do you mean MSX?

the current E40 hardware (late 2013) has MSX on board
http://www.flir.com/uploadedFiles/Thermography_USA/Products/Product_Literature/flir-e-series-datasheet.pdf

you wrote
E40 camera is rather old. I have one unit which I recently got with firmware Version 3.18.0 (E40 1.0).
your E40 ref 1.0 fw 3.18.0 (Late 2013) with MSX
my E40 ref 0.10 fw 2.23.14 (Late 2012) without MSX


I thought, that the last firmware for old E40 hardware (without MSX) is 2.23.14

firmware differences in Exx P/N:490xx to  Exx P/N:645xx (with MSX)

old Exx (Late 2012) firmware feed:   
Last Updated: April 23, 2013:    FLIR Exx P/N:490xx (2.23.14) Update Pack
http://support.flir.com/SwDownload/app/RssSWDownload.aspx?ID=127
my old Exx has the sensor "SB320 ISC0601" (see /FlashFS/tmp/prod.log or "rls .image.flow.detector")

new Exx with MSX:  (Late 2013)
Last Updated: November 21, 2014: FLIR Exx P/N:645xx / 646xx (4.9.0) Update Pack
http://support.flir.com/SwDownload/app/RssSWDownload.aspx?ID=194



for old E40 I activated fusion and pdf in
Code: [Select]
\flashfs\system\ui.d\config.d\conf.cfg
...
.caps.config.mode.radiometricVideo bool true
.caps.config.fusion.thermal.enabled bool true
.caps.config.fusion.thermal.auto bool true
.caps.config.fusion.thermal.interval bool true
.caps.config.fusion.thermal.above bool true
.caps.config.fusion.thermal.below bool true
.caps.config.report.createPdf bool true
...
look for this strings in your config files
best entry is
Code: [Select]
rls -r -l and grep fusion

with rls you can find hidden unknown switches but not all works  :(

here is the corresponding part for the file above (old E40)
\flashfs\system\ui.d\config.d\conf.cfg
Code: [Select]
.ui.caps.config.fusion: (3)
rw--r--------- 0 root   root   <e> PIP                             
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                     true
rw--r--------- 0 root   root   <e> thermal                         

.ui.caps.config.fusion.PIP: (2)
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                     true
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> locked                      true

.ui.caps.config.fusion.thermal: (5)
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> above                      false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> auto                       false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> below                      false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                    false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> interval                   false


.ui.caps.config.mode: (5)
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                     true
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> panorama                   false
r---r--------- 2 root   root   <b> program                    false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> radiometricVideo           false
r---r--------- 2 root   root   <b> video                       true

.ui.caps.config.report: (2)
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> createPdf                  false
r---r--------- 0 root   root   <b> enabled                     true

watch for the syntax of the config files
you must go every step with "entry"!!

Please take the time and write a good tutorial for upgrading the E40 Late 2013 and link it in the first post of this thread

thank you

I will.

By the way, by thermal fusion, I mean like this:

http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/flir-e4-thermal-imaging-camera-teardown/msg426832/#msg426832

I'll try the changes you suggested above to see if I can get this feature.

in your config files I see

Code: [Select]
.caps.config.image.framegrab.fusion.pip entry
.caps.config.image.framegrab.fusion.pip.enabled bool true

and

Code: [Select]
.caps.config.ui.fusion.PIP entry
.caps.config.ui.fusion.PIP.enabled bool true
.caps.config.ui.fusion.PIP.locked bool true
as entry point for  fusion

watch my post above for syntax details

PS: do you really want to use fusion instead of MSX ?
