    Firmware Updater 

    Firmware Updater

    Elinchrom units can only be updated with the Elinchrom Updater Software.

    • Most recent units have a micro/mini USB socket which needs to be connected directly to your computer. 
    • For other Elinchrom units without USB socket, which require a wireless update, the Elinchrom Bridge or the EL-Skyport USB RX module is needed. 

    Please note:

    To be able to update Elinchrom units with the USB RX, do not update your Mac to the latest MacOS version; Catalina 10.15, the USB RX hardware is not compatible.
