Introduction
In order to update your EDM-730/830 application firmware, you will need access to a personal computer with a USB interface and have a USB FLASH drive (commonly referred to as a “thumb drive”).
Step 1 – Verifying Applicable EDM-730/830 Version for this update

  • Hold the Lean Find button (LF) while powering “ON” the EDM
  • Continue to hold LF until you see a screen with product information text.
  • Verify that the Firmware Revision is 3.17.xxx or higher.

Step 2 – Creating the Installation Media

  • Insert an industry standard USB FLASH drive into a personal computer with access to the EDM-730/830 application update.
  • Download with .pkg extension (EDM830-Update-Package-V3-52.002.zip) and copy to the USB drive. Be sure that the package file name is not modified in any way.
  • Copy INFO-EDM830.hw file to the USB drive.

Step 3 – Updating the EDM
• With power to the EDM turned “OFF” hold STEP and LF buttons on the EDM and turn power to the EDM
“ON”
• The EDM will start with a blue screen titled “AppLoader
• Insert the USB FLASH drive created in Step 2
• The EDM screen will change to show “EDM730/830” and “Version 3.50” at the center of the screen and
“Install EDM Update dated 09/16/15 04:54 PM” in the lower left corner of the screen.
• Tap the button labeled “INSTALL” (the LF key) to start the EDM update process.
• The process will verify the integrity of the install package and begin extracting files to be installed on the
EDM.
• When the installation is complete (all files have been installed successfully and verified), the EDM will
automatically boot, and start updating the AppLoader portion of the system.
• If prompted to update the AppLoader, press the key labeled “YES”. DO NOT POWER OFF THE EDM
DURING THIS UPDATE.
• When the AppLoader update is complete, the EDM will automatically boot, ready for normal operations.

Step 4 – Verifying Correct Installation
• Hold the Lean Find button (LF) while powering “ON” the EDM
• Continue to hold LF until you see a screen with product information text.
• Verify that the Firmware Revision is 3.50.000 and Check Sum value is 055B56EA
• Verify BootLoader version is 8.00 and AppLoader version is 3.05
This is a good time to verify that Program and Factory setting are correct.
