Instructions for Upgrading the 45MG


Using Upgrade2010
***Note the USB Cable is required to upgrade 45MG with Upgrade2010***
The first step is to obtain the upgrade .bin files for the instrument and Upgrade 2010. Both of
these can either be obtained by going to http://www.olympus-ims.com/en/service-andsupport/downloads/ and selecting Thickness Gages, the 45MG should be listed there. You
will have to create an account to download the upgrade program.
Upgrade 2010 and the .bin files can also be obtained by E-mailing
thicknessgageinsidesales@olympusndt.com for an FTP link.
NOTE: It is best to save the .bin files to a new folder on your desktop to make them easier to
find later.
