​ASX-560, ASX-280, XLR-860 Firmware Update

Firmware for the ASX-560, ASX-280 and XLR-860 autosamplers can be installed by downloading one of the firmware packets below and using the ASX Dashboard software utility that is included with the autosampler. If the ASX Dashboard software is not available, yo​u can also upgrade firmware using the Field​ Programming Utility.

A Note About Firmware Version Numbers:

There is a slight difference in the firmware required for some early autosamplers which did not include a damper on the Y axis motor. You can check if the Y-arm motor has a damper without any disassembly by looking through the slot on the front of the autosampler as shown below. For further information about affected autosamplers involving serial numbers and manufacturing dates, click here.​
