How to Download The Standalone GUI Binary

The TD-XPAH’s GUI is now fully functional and can be used to configure your device. Many thanks to our beta testers for feedback and suggestions!

The GUI source code is available in our github repo. Please see the branch "teledatics_gui."

The GUI is accessible from a Windows, Mac, or Linux system over USB cable via the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP). Alternatively, it can be accessed over an 802.11ah wireless connection.

The binary image included in our github checkin is downloaded using the Newracom Java-based download tool.

The tool displays the proper DIP switch settings for download mode at the top.

Once the image is downloaded, reset the DIP switches to standalone mode and restart the device. The TD-XPAH GUI is now accessible.
