Q: How do I know which firmware upgrade to use (US or EU)?

A: If you are in Australia or New Zealand, please use the USA version of the firmware. The European firmware has an additional switch on the chuck guard as required by European law. This switch is not present on the Australian and New Zealand models, so if you use the EU version, you may be locked out of the machine if you try and use it.

The version information of your drill press has 2 parts and can be found by pressing Menu>Configuration>Version Info.

8.XX would be an example of the main board firmware (for example, 8.21c).

R2P04x or R2P05would be an example of the HMI/front control panel firmware (for example, R2P04p).

To check which firmware you are running go to: Menu>Configuration>Version Info

You can revert to your original version software at any time. This file is included in the download. Follow the same instructions as above (Firmware Update Instructions).


If an error occurs stating “missing mfc120.dll file”:
1.  Run the appropriate installation file under the folder names “If missing DLL files, install this” You will have to determine the type of operating system that you have on your computer. You will need to run vcredist_x64.exe for 64 bit operating system and vcredist_x86.exe for 32 bit operating system. To determine if you’re on a 32bit (x86) or a 64 bit (or x64) operating system see: http://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=9405

2. Run NOVA_SETUP.exe again

    This is the smartest tool in my shop, it is a joy to work with the interface is easy to use. The Drill press is quiet and very accurate in its speed and depth stop capabilities. The 6″ of travel has made my job much easier.
