ALSM Stage

ARRI Lighting Service Manager

The ARRI Lighting Service Manager (ALSM) is an essential tool for updating, maintaining and servicing your ARRI LED light fixture. With the ALSM you can update firmware, download service logs from the fixture, change DMX and fan mode settings and much more.

Instruction for Updating your ARRI LED Fixture
If using a USB flash drive to update your SkyPanel, please use a USB drive that is USB version 1.0 or 2.0 and is formatted to FAT or FAT32. The update file (.upd) must be in the root directory of the drive and the USB Mode on the SkyPanel must be set to “Normal”. Once the USB stick is inserted into the SkyPanel, the fixture will automatically look for the update file. When found, the display will prompt the user if they wish to preform the update. Use the encoder to select “Yes” and then click the encoder. The update will begin - do not remove the USB stick until the file is completely copied.
*This update option is not available for the L-Series.

If using ALSM (ARRI Lighting Service Manager) to update your SkyPanel or L-Series fixture, install the ALSM onto your Mac or PC. Then simply open the application and connect the SkyPanel to the computer via Ethernet cable. For the L-Series, connect your fixture to the computer via a mini-USB cable. The ALSM will automatically find your fixture once powered on and connected. Select the “Firmware Update” tab and then select the fixture you wish to update in the column on the left side of the screen. Click “Update Firmware” to begin the update. Do not disconnect your fixture from the power source or from the computer until the update is complete.

If you have problems with your fixture or the update, please contact ARRI service at
