You will need at least 2 radios with E Release Firmware.
Each radio requires its own Firmware License.
This license is for an FCC frequency (USA, Canada, Mexico, and South America) PowerMC2. The E Release is not available for CE frequency PowerMC2 Receivers at this time.
Important information: Please make sure you enter your email address correctly at checkout. The license(s) will be assigned to that email address. After purchase, you will receive a confirmation email from *LPA Design* (PocketWizard's parent company) with further instructions. The upgrade is completed through the PocketWizard utility via a USB connection with a computer, either a PC or Mac. It cannot be done on a smartphone or tablet. You will need a mini B to USB data cable for the upgrade. An upgrade must be purchased for each radio and will be assigned to the radio's serial number upon installation. Once assigned, it is non-transferable.
What you need to know
The PowerMC2 is compatible with the Paul C. Buff Einstein E640 and the LINK*. It is not compatible with the DigiBees.
Note: the PowerMC2 must have firmware version 4.216 or higher to work with the LINK.
A unit upgraded with the E Release is compatible only with other PocketWizard radios that have also been upgraded. Be sure to use the same generation of E Release firmware-either the newest versions which may be in Beta or the lowest firmware numbers available in the Utility.
Once you update to the E Release firmware, the unit is licensed forever. It can be downgraded to Legacy PocketWizard firmware at any time for use with your other PocketWizard radios. Re-upgrading to E Release can be done at any time with minimal effort.
