After firmware update 41 was installed on my Spectran HF 60105, the unit was re-calibrated at the factory.

Since a few weeks I have seeen that there is a version 42.
Can I play this over the version 41, without recalibration at the factory, or does this also needs recalibration?

Yes, updating from Beta41 to Beta42 is no problem.

I was read post, but when i was read that need calibration after upgrade firmware, i was image i can make calibration alone by SMA Resistor 50ohm (WHY DONT WAS WRITE THAT SURE WILL NEED CALIBRATION FROM FACTORY???!!!!!!! a lot person dont make it sure ! ) and sure dont know i must send my Spectran to factory again :idea: :(
Now how i cna solve my problem? How much cost for make new Calibration ? I image a lot money, and is not is good idea that now a lot person ned send all Aronia to company and spend money again for little mistemake about aaronia firmware that make this error.

You would need to send the unit back to us.
A new calibration incl. full certificate would cost only 199,95 Euros (plus shipping cost).

If you see the "New calibration required" on the device itself it means that the current calibration is more than two years old and probably no longer valid, independent of the Firmware update.

The "New Calibration Required" message appeared immediately after I installed the software upgrade. I'm assuming that it was caused by the update, as mentioned in previous posts. Can I install an older version of the software to reclaim my calibrated status, or did the upgrade trash that old information?

Thanks,
Carl

That would make no sense since the new firmware modifies the old calibration file.
Anyway if you get the message your calibration simply was older then 2 years. The new firmware will check this, older versions did not.
In that case your calibration was not valid and you anyway would need a new recalibration (calibration period is 2 years).

So, the big question is:
Are the results of the displayed values any different than they would have been before the software upgrade? Are the results just not guaranteed to be calibrated (more than 2 years past cal date), or are they wildly different than they would have been if I had not applied the firmware update?
thanks,
Carl

Without a new calibration (to compare the results) this is impossible to say.
