Solution
Write to multiple cards or usb
disks at once, at extreme speeds.
Etcher is already the best and fastest way for writing to disk images, in fact it’s currently writing over a million SD Cards & USB Drives per month! Now, we are working on a way for you to write to more devices, with the same ease of use and streamlined interface you have come to expect from Etcher, and completely independent from your computer.
EtcherPro is a stand-alone hardware device that allows you to write to multiple cards or usb disks at once, at extreme speeds. Compared to a traditional Disk Duplicator, EtcherPro is faster and less expensive, while at the same time easier to use and packed with features, so that you can do much more than just copy SD Cards.

Insane speed
Fastest writing speed
We built EtcherPro with meticulous attention to the hardware, to ensure the fastest writing speed available on the market today. Each EtcherPro can write with a maximum speed of 60 MB/s* per port – no matter how many drives your are flashing.
*This is limited by the maximum speed of the drives you are writing to, but at least the hardware will no longer slow you down!

Modular expansion
Expand up to 160 ports
16 cards not enough? Good news! EtcherPro is modularly expandable. Simply connect two EtcherPro devices together, they will act as one device with 32 destination slots. If you want even more ports, just add more devices, and write to dozens of cards simultaneously.
EtcherPro can expand up to 160 ports, while continuing to operate at full speed. The whole stack can be powered up with only one power cable, as every device is power and data chained to the next. All cables are accommodated under the device.

Ergonomic design
Designed for usability
We wanted to offer a great experience when interacting with EtcherPro, after all, this is what the Etcher app is well known for.
The large touch screen and the slots are titled towards the user for comfortable operation. When daisy-chained, only the screen of the leading device remains exposed and the whole stack behaves as one device.

Board adapter
Perfect fit for balenaFin
In addition to flashing drives, EtcherPro can also provision single-board computers* like the balenaFin. To keep things organized, we designed a simple laser-cut adapter that can accept a range of boards.
The adapter simply snaps onto the board and is locked in place using the USB cable.
*We support any Raspberry Pi based device that supports the usbboot flashing protocol.

Frequently asked questions

When can I buy an EtcherPro?
+
We are doing some pre-production testing and getting ready for certifying the device. We are not sure how long this process will take but we aim to start shipping as soon as possible. You can subscribe to get project updates.

How many drives / devices can I flash?
+
Every EtcherPro has 16 slots, one of them can act as a source. This means that if you are using a physical source (e.g. drive), you need to sacrifice a slot and flash up to 15. If you have 2 daisy-chained devices, you can flash up to 31 (15 + 16) drives. However, soon we will release URL links, so you won't have to sacrifice a slot when using an online source.

Can I flash different target types simultaneously?
+
EtcherPro offers USB, SD and microSD by default, so you can flash up to 16 different devices / drives simultaneously. For instance, you can flash a balenaFin, a USB drive, an SD card and a microSD at the same time as long as you plug one target per slot.

How many EtcherPros can I daisy-chain?
+
You can stack up to 10 devices to flash up to 160 drives without compromising speed or having safety issues due to power consumption.
