Important:

  • Never turn off your unit during the firmware update procedure. This may damage your device! If the upgrade fails (e.g. power supply failure during firmware update), you may not be able to operate your device anymore.
  • We recommend backing up your settings before you upgrade and then resetting all settings to factory default after the update. We also strongly suggest testing the functions you plan on using on only one unit first, before upgrading any other units in the field.
  • This firmware is only for inXtron's standard products and specifically the model(s) as mentioned above. DO NOT use this firmware for any other devices!

 

Where to find the current firmware version

  • Turn on your D8-M3.
  • The current firmware version will be displayed on the main screen in the bottom right corner.
  • If your current version is the same as the latest release seen above, your unit does not need to be updated. If yours has an older version, follow the steps as described below to update the firmware.

How to update the firmware

  1. Download the latest firmware, save it on your local disk and unzip it.
  2. Store the COD file on a USB disk in the root directory (formatted using FAT32) or if available, preferably directly on the CF card.
