Guide is for firmware version 8.2

This guide is written for firmware version 8.2 or later. You can download the firmware from the Impinj support site.

Our application can run on any firmware above 7.0, however, there are minor variations in how to install our application on those different firmware versions.

Also, on firmware 8.0 and 8.1 the Status LED is not working.

  1. Change 'CAP Authentication' from 'Disabled' to 'Open', and press the 'Change CAP Authentication' button.
  1. Drag and drop, or select the downloaded reader agent file.
  1. Wait until it says 'Upgrade has been installed.' and press the Reboot button.

During the reboot process the 'System' LED should go from Yellow, to blinking Purple, to Green. Wait until the LED is green before creating a read point.

System LED status

  • Purple, blinking Connecting to backend
  • Red Not connected to backend
  • Green Connected to backend


Not working in Firmware version 8.0 and 8.1

The system LED is not working in Firmware version 8.0 and 8.1. It started working again in version 8.2.

Determine the Mac Address and Serial number

The Mac Address and Serial number of the reader are required to connect to a read point. The Mac Address and Serial can be found on the side of the reader.


Association with Harmony

If you associate with Harmony, please remove all dashes ('-') from the serial number. So, 370-20-39-8975 should become 37020398975.
