The 8100 series features user update-able firmware to add new features and resolve issues without the need to return to a service centre.


Depending upon the firmware version there are slight variations in the steps to trigger a USB update.


For Firmware versions < 1.0.7


From the Main Screen, press the MENU key and then press the softkey under CONFIG


Navigate to FIRMWARE UPDATE [VIA USB DEVICE PORT] and press ENTER, SELECT or press the Digital Control


For Firmware Versions >= 1.0.7


From the Main Screen, press the MENU key and then press the softkey under CONFIG


You will be prompted to enter the system Passcode (default 1234) to enable access to the CONFIG menu. After entering the passcode press the CONFIG key again and navigate to FIRMWARE UPDATE [VIA USB DEVICE PORT] and press ENTER, SELECT or press the DIGITAL Control.

Selecting the FIRMWARE UPDATE [VIA USB DEVICE PORT] will trigger an update sequence that will copy new system files from a USB Pen Drive connected to the front panel USB port


USB Drives must be formatted as FAT32 and have all other files removed prior to placing update files onto the root of the drive (i.e. not within any folders unless instructed). Update packages consist of a file called 8100 Update.exe as well as ancillary files with the .8100 extension when required.


During an update, a window indicating progress will appear as below




Upon removal of the USB drive the multimeter will reset
