Prog-Express Prog-Express Prog-Express


Prog-Express is currently the most advanced and most professional programming device control software throughout the market.

It makes the usage of a programming device foolproof easy and offers many powerful features.


Suitable for all USB programming devices of Batronix.


Available free of charge for Windows, Linux and OS X.

Made in Germany

Prog-Express is a modern and intuitive control software for the Batronix USB programming devices free of charge. Programming a chip from a file or copying an existing chip is done by just a few mouse-clicks thanks to pre-set process steps. Despite the easy to use interface, professional protection, split, auto-identify, auto-start and serial-number functions and a convenient hex-editor are available in addition to the basic functions like read, program, compare and erase.

In production mode, up to 8 programming devices can be controlled simultaneously and individually allowing a very high level of productivity. The programming speed for each individual programming device is at almost the same level as using only one single device.

The software, all updates and future versions are freeware. The current version can be downloaded from www.batronix.com at any time and can be used without any activation key. Hence the devices will still be equipped with the latest technical standard, even after several years of usage. Support for further chips is added quickly and free of charge based on customer requests, as long as these chips are supported by the hardware.

When using Prog-Express for programming your chips, you are working with modern software enjoying a high level of support through the development division of Batronix. In the event of problems, quick support is available on video.

Chip Volume Production

Prog-Express contains great volume production capabilities. Certainly this is one reason for Prog-Express being the pre-installed software solution of the powerful Baplexo Gang-Programmers. A Gang-Programmer is the easiest volume programming solution currently available due to its "ready out of the box" character. Prog-Express clearly adds an effective volume production environment.

Prog-Express supports an awesome feature called "clustered programming environment". For reasons of simplification, we would like to call it a "programming cluster" or just a "cluster".

A cluster consists of a host PC and up to eight attached BX32 Batupo, BX32P Barlino, BX40 Bagero or BX48 Batego Batronix USB programming devices. It's up to you to choose the preferred programming devices. The software supports any mix of devices without any restrictions.

Clustering programming devices is a common approach to create a small volume production environment on the fly. Start your first cluster with two or more programming devices and expand the cluster as required when your production requirements are growing.

Creating a programming cluster is surely an interesting and flexible alternative to the powerful gang programmer solutions like the BX448 Baplexo I or the BX848 Baplexo II.

Read more information about cluster programming and gang programming.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore we would like to demonstrate the ease of using Prog-Express and the Batronix USB programming devices in a short video presentation.

Within 5 minutes, you will learn how to program a chip with the data from a file, copy an existing chip, read a chip and program 20 chips in the volume production mode.


Time: 5 minutes
File size: 5 MByte



Extension modules are adding new and very special features to Prog-Express. Please note that no extension module is required for the basic functionality of Prog-Express. These modules are intended to meet the requirements of specialists.

Chip Tuner

The target audiences of the Chip Tuning extension module are skilled engine tuning specialists in the automotive industry. This module simplifies some of their daily tasks.

It offers a fully automated search for engine maps in the raw data of a memory chip from an engine control unit (ECU). Furthermore, it features an additional 2D- and 3D-view onto the engine map data.

You will find more information about the Chip Tuner Module on its separate website.
