How to Use a USB to Import or Export Data on an ALX-LITE or ELITE Chemical Controller

Learn how to use the USB feature on an ALX-LITE or ELITE chemical dispensing controller to import and export users, application recipes, and other crucial data.

The ALX-LITE or ELITE includes an 8GB USB drive already plugged into the port on the bottom of the controller. The controller will store dispense logs on this USB drive, which can be retrieved manually, anytime. The USB drive can also be used to import and export controller settings (Users, Devices, Applications) and for software updates.


  • Leave a USB drive plugged into the unit at all times, except when manually retrieving logs or importing/exporting. If the USB drive is removed indefinitely or for long periods of time the controller will be unable to record data!

  • Always make sure to install and tighten the protective cap after the USB flash drive is reinserted. If using a flash drive other than the one included, make sure the protective cap will still fit in place and screw on all the way!
