IRTrans USB Driver

To use an IRTrans USB module, you need a "driver" to make the OS recognize the module.

If you are running macOS 10.9 or later (Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave), please install this driver with version 2.4.2. Here's the download link: "FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_4_2.dmg" (85 KB). 

This driver was tested on macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) up to 10.14 (Mojave).

After downloading and double-clicking the package, a window like this shows up:

Double click the right package and you will be guided through the installation. It is recommended to quit iRed and unplug the USB module before installation!


Please refrain from looking for newer drivers on the Internet, because only the provided driver is tested for use with iRed2.

For older versions of Mac OS X you may need to install this one: "FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_16.dmg" (434 KB)Please see the Troubleshooting page, if you encounter problems.
