■About Failsafe Mode
The Dante module integrated in the R series may become unusable due to data corruption if the
Dante device is powered-off during a firmware update.
To recover from such a state, the Dante module will enter "failsafe mode."
To restore the Dante module from failsafe mode, a recovery image must be sent from the Firmware
Update Manager.
If the red [SYSTEM] indicator of the R series device periodically blinks twice, it may be that the
Dante module is in failsafe mode.
Use Dante Controller to check whether the Dante module is in failsafe mode.
A Dante module that is in failsafe mode is shown as a red device name in the network grid view of
Dante Controller (version 3.1.x or later).

Described below are the procedures to recover the Dante module integrated in the R series device.
1.
Turn off the power to the R series device.
2. Separate the R series device from the Dante network.
3. Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the R series device to the Ethernet
connector on the computer using an Ethernet cable.
In some cases, an error may occur during recovery if you are going through a network switch. Connect the
computer with the R series device in a one-to-one connection.
4. Turn on the power to the R series device.
5. Disable all but one of the network interfaces on your computer.
You should also disable the wireless LAN.
6.
Select [Start]→[All programs]→[Audinate]→[Dante Firmware Update Manager]→[Dante Firmware

15
13. Exit the Dante Firmware Update Manager, and wait for two minutes before turning off the power to
the R series device.
After recovery, restart the Dante module. If you power-off the R series device before restart is completed, the data
of the Dante module will be corrupted, and you will have to perform the recovery once again. Start Dante
Controller, and if the device name is shown in black, it is safe to turn off the power.
14. The correct Dante firmware now needs to be loaded.
After recovery, the Dante firmware will not be the latest version. To update to the latest firmware, perform steps
