Updating your Elcometer Inspection Gauge with ElcoMaster®

Elcometer has regularly released free firmware updates, providing the latest features and functionality for our range of digital inspection gauges.

For example, for Elcometer 224 gauge, Elcometer released a new feature, “Measurement Modes” which allows you to collect and record the data you need in accordance with your relevant test method / standard.

What if you still haven’t run the update on your Elcometer? You can update your gauge’s firmware using the ElcoMaster® software.  Top do so, you need three things: the gauge, a USB cable, and a PC connected to the internet with the latest version of ElcoMaster® installed (download here). If you already have it installed, make sure you have the latest version by clicking on Menu – Update – Check for Updates, and follow the on-screen instructions.

With the latest ElcoMaster® installed, connect your gauge to the PC, via USB cable. Now, while you can connect gauges to ElcoMaster® via Bluetooth as well, when you are updating your gauges’ firmware you must connect via a USB cable. With the gauge connected, click the Connect Gauge button in the top-left of the screen, and then select the type of gauge you wish to connect to. Then simply follow the on-screen instructions to connect the gauge. Your gauge is now visible in the list on the Download screen.

Usually if there’s an update for your gauge, an Update Gauge button will appear automatically on the right-hand side of the screen. If it doesn’t appear you can always check for gauge updates manually by clicking on Menu – Update – Update a Connected Gauge, and select the gauge you wish to update. Either way, once you click to update your gauge, a full list of what’s included in the update will appear on-screen. Simply follow the on-screen instructions, to update your gauge.

But before you do, please note, when you update your gauge all batches will be deleted and the gauge will be restored to default factory settings, so we advise downloading all of your batches into ElcoMaster® first, should you need them. If the update process is interrupted in any way, like the USB cable being disconnected or your PC losing power for example; don’t worry – you can always manually start the update process again following the same steps. Also, please make sure your gauge is compatible with the Elcomaster version here.

That’s how easy it is to update an Elcometer digital inspection gauge via ElcoMaster®.
