PRU-50 Programmer

Part Number: 86024

PRU-50 is a USB powered programmer which can be used to program Jotron’s:

• EPIRBs
• Handheld VHF (Tron TR20)
• ML-series of lights

Technically, this unit converts signals from virtual COM ports on a computer (through a USB-serial adapter built into PRU-50) into infrared light which is used to communicate with EPIRBs or programmable lights. This means that software only supporting legacy Serial ports on computers also will function with this programmer.

EPIRB programming/coding software released: TronLink-EPIRB 4.2.x

November 2020 – Jotron’s re-designed EPIRB programming software is available in a new version. This software makes it easier to program the Jotron range of EPIRBs and is prerequisite for EPIRBs with GPS with serial numbers higher than 16383. The user friendly design maks it easy to code Jotron EPIRB’s in a streamlined fashion reducing the risk of errors. The older PR40 software will be removed from jotron.com December 1st, 2020.
