    Firmware Updater 

    Firmware Updater

    Elinchrom units must 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 module is needed.
