Controller software download

Software update


The software in the controller consist of an operating system software (OS) and Hilltip IceStriker/ SprayStriker application software (updater). Both softwares are updated via USB stick. Normally the OS software is up to date and you only need to update application software. You can install only application software or both OS and application software at the same time. OS needs to be update if it is older than version 2.2.0. OS version is seen in About view. (Info → About), it is the last 5 numbers that is important e.g 3.0.101-rt130-opusa3-2.2.2-2 is OS version 2.2.2. Please note that calibration setting and all other settings will be cleared when updating OS.

IMPORTANT! After you have installed the software you need to select spreader type and options. Make sure you select correct spreader and options.

NOTE! Files are distributed as encrypted zip file. You need a password and a suitable program (for example 7 zip: https://www.7-zip.org/download.html) to extract the application software zip file. Please contact your local dealer for the password.
