Using a ETC gadget II: 

(Note If you are updating multiple fixtures with gadget II this will be a very slow process and not all the fixtures may take the code.If you are doing multiple fixtures, I would suggest using a gateway.)

1) When you plug in your gadget II you will get a window that says USB/DMX device detected.


2) The click on the USB / DMX Devices button on the right-hand side.

3) A notification come up that discusses that fact that this will update one or more fixtures on a line and we do not support non ETC Opto’s. Press Next.


4) Then pick the Rosa3 firmware update file and click the next button


5) Now you will get a progress bar.


When finished, press Finished Button at bottom of screen.


If using a network gateway:

1) Check IP of gateway, If it’s in the 10.101.50.x range, with subnet of great.  Note: If you are on a larger network with an Network address server (DHCP), the addresses of the Gaterway and the laptop should automatically be assigned to the range of the DHCP server which will be different. For this your network setting should be on automatic as well. If not, you will have to determine an IP address manually.                                                                                                              

2) Change computers IP to be in the local Address in the 10.101.1.x range.



Open UpdaterAtor and choose the appropriate network card.

Note: you may see either and green equals (software in computer matches gateway device) or Green up arrow (software in             computer new that gateway device) or orange down arrow (software in computer older that gateway device), you do not             have to update code in gateway in order to load code in to the RDM Fixtures.


Click the RDM Devices button on the Right-hand side.



This will give you a popup window to select Software version.

Then pick the Rosa3 firmware update file and click the next button.


A new of the popup Window will come up to chooses the gateways you wish select to use for sending code. Then click             Begin update at bottom of the popup Window.



You will then get a progress bar as software loads. 


When finished, press Done at bottom of screen.
