FTM-99Controller on the left and FTQ-64x14 Module on the right



The FTQ module and new fireTEK equipment will use a USB C Drive


Existing FTM-99 Controllers since 2018 use a USB A Drive


USB C to A Adapters will work


A drive that has both USB C and USB A will work



Note: FTM-99 Controllers and FTH-48Fx modules also have a USB B interface for Android Tablets, Computers, and for Charging. 



Notes for success:  It is recommended to always test your USB drives ahead of time.  Some higher end USB drives that may have restrictions allowing the FTQ module to write to the drive.  fireTEK recommends not using USB drives that illuminate as they typically pull more current and can affect some functions.  


USB C


32GB or smaller

It is recommended to remove all other files from the drive.  It is acceptable to also have a FTQ configuration file on the drive, if needed. 



USB A

Format as FAT32 (it will NOT work if formatted as NTFS or other file system format)

It is recommended to remove all other files from the drive.
