Question by Nikolett | Product code: 70-2555
22 June 2015

QHi, Could you provide the PIC firmware to the Wand? I need to overwrite the default message to something else and there is no possibility to program it whenever it is switched on. Thanks, Nikolett
AHi Nikolett, thank you for your question. Please see the data sheet which has the programming code.

Qhow to program the pic controlar
AHi Shyam. Thank you for your question. The PIC comes pre-programmed. The message can be programmed on the board once the kit is built.
