My RE system: MATE3


Post by ravonmartin » Mon Dec 02, 2019 3:07 pm

I have just bought a MATE3 and I am trying to download the OPTICSRE software; however, I am unable to find the download link anywhere. Does anyone know how to download OPTICSRE??
The setup instructions just say to download from outbackpower.com but it is nowhere to be found.

As long as the Mate3 has firmware version 3.11.0 or higher it should be able to communicate with OPTICSRE. There is no extra software you need to download.

To ensure you are connected press the Port key on the front of the Mate3 to check the network status of the device. There is a status indicator for Optics in the bottom right of the Port screen. You may need to enable OPTICSRE support in the Mate3 settings that you can get to by pressing the LOCK key.

You will need the MAC address of the device to register it with our OPTICSRE service. This can also be found on the Port screen.

Please see http://www.outbackpower.com/downloads/d ... manual.pdf for further documentation.
