  • DRL3 has a RJ-45 port on it that allows it to be connected to a local area network (LAN) for integration into other systems via ethernet. 

  • The two main reasons for networking are:

    • VNC (virtual network computing)​ 

      • The "screen" of a DRL system may be accessed via a VNC viewer software. Once you have the IP address of the unit you may access it with the following credentials:​

        • User: pi​

        • PW: raspberry

    • Liftingcast Integration (Version 0.8+) 

      • DRL can be integrated into liftingcast. This allows ​the chief referee's remote to start the clock, and based on the referee's decisions the lift can be marked good/bad automatically and the program advances to the next lifter. 

      • You can access the DRL<->Liftingcast integration menu from any computer on your LAN. Simply go to the "Liftingcast Management " URL presented in the DRL Menu. Don't forget the ":5000" at the end! 

Updating DRL

  • Every set of DRL3 comes with a wireless keyboard/mouse. This is included to make it easier to update DRL3's software. 

  • There is a dongle in the back of the wirless keyboard, make sure it is plugged into the DRL3 receiver. 

  • Once plugged in pressing "ESC" on the keyboard exits the program and reveals a desktop environment.

  • DRL3 must be connected to the internet in order to be updated, so it can either be done via the RJ-45 port or over Wifi

    • To connect to a local Wifi Network, press the ​wifi icon in the top right of the screen and connect. 

  • Once a internet connection has been established, double click the "Update DRL" Icon on the desktop and wait for the pop up to appear with the update information. ​

  • If no popup appears, there was an error when trying to update, please double check your internet connection. 

  • After the pop up appears your unit has been successfully updated and can be powered down.
