Part Description

3A1244 Graco Control Architecture ™ Module Programming


ADM Token In-System Programming provides the capability to transfer software updates from a USB drive to a

Graco black software update token. With this feature, you can obtain the software updates online, download them to the USB, and transfer them directly to the token instead of waiting for a new software update token to be shipped.

The Advanced Display Module (ADM) can be used to re-purpose any existing black software update token.

NOTE: This process is for Graco black tokens only; not

Graco blue tokens.

NOTE: All update files must have a file extension of

*.GTI (software update files) or *.GMI (gateway map files). A maximum of 14 files can be present in the

\Graco\Software\ folder.
