How to Update the Firmware of the NANLINK WS-TB-1 Transmitter Box


A new version of the firmware for the NANLINK WS-TB-1 Transmitter Box is available. Clearly written instructions for installing it are provided below. The WS-TB-1 allows you to control any Nanlite fixture that features 2.4G with the new NANLINK mobile app. This includes the PavoTube 30C and 15C, the Forza 500, the MixPanel 150 and many more.



What you need to get started


You are going to need a USB 2.0 drive that you can connect to the USB-C port on the WS-TB-1 in order to carry out this firmware update. Nanlite USA is including a USB 2.0 drive in the box of the WS-TB-1 with the latest firmware update preloaded onto the included drive. If you received one of these drives with your WS-TB-1, you don't need to download the firmware and load it on to the drive. You can skip right to the numbered instructions below.


Where to download the latest firmware


If you need to download the firmware, you can find it at this link:


The file that you download from that link will be zipped. You need to unzip it first. Then you need to move the file named WS_TB_1_FW_V1.01.05.upd to your USB 2.0 drive. Do not keep any other files in the drive when you carry out the firmware update, only the "upd" file that you downloaded.  


How to load the firmware onto the NANLINK WS-TB-1


1. Insert the drive into the USB-C port on the WS-TB-1 Transmitter Box

2. Switch on the power switch.

3. Long press the function button for 5 seconds after the indicators flash rapidly in sync.

4. During the upgrade process, the indicators will flash like breathe.

5. The indicators will light up one by one, which means the transmitter box can be found on the Nanlink APP.


NOTICE: If the two indicators in the middle light up and the other two indicators outside light up after, it means that the box fails to detect the firmware upgrade, please check the instruction steps the try again.
