You have decided to carry out a software update by means of a USB stick. The following instructions
will inform you how to use this easy application.

If you do not have received the latest software on a USB stick yet, it is recommended to open the Ivo-

. In the chapter “Programat Software update (for USB

stick)” you can select the software required for your furnace and save it on a USB stick.

Please proceed as follows:


Select “Open” in the file download dialogue and wait until the folder (e.g. P700_V1[1].03.zip)


Subsequently, select the *.gz file (e.g. P700_V1.03.gz) and copy it to the USB memory stick.


The software version on the USB memory stick must be newer than the one on the furnace. If you are
not sure which software version is on your furnace, you can look it up in the “Information“ menu.

settings during the software update. Therefore, we recommend noting down the settings
