The AtomX menu page indicates the attached AtomX Expansion Modules and their versions. If you have successfully upgraded your firmware and attached an AtomX Expansion Module, you will see a screen similar to the image below. This indicates the fact that your firmware is up to date and that the attached module(s) are ready for use.
To connect an AtomX Expansion Module to your NINJA V:
Line up the rear part of the expansion module with the AtomXpansion port of NINJA V.
Gently slide the module into the AtomXpansion port until it clicks into place.
When a module is mounted, make sure that it clicks into place.
To remove an AtomX Expansion Module from your NINJA V:
Press the battery release button on the NINJA V
Gently slide the module upwards and away from the NINJA V.
Attaching batteries to an AtomX Expansion Module
Most AtomX Expansion Modules have a battery slot onto which you can connect a compatible NP-F L Series type battery or ATOMOS Battery Eliminator. The battery latch on AtomX Expansion Modules will lock the battery or Battery Eliminator into place.
AtomX CAST does not have a battery slot and can only be powered by the 12V-3A AC power supply that was included with yourNINJA V. For more information refer to the When you have an AtomX CAST connected to your NINJA V, the 12V-3A AC power supply that was included with your NINJA V supplies power for both NINJA V and AtomX CAST. Connect the DC connector to the DC input on the AtomX CAST to provide power to both devices. For more information on the AtomX CAST connections, refer to AtomX Expansion Modules section.
To attach a battery to an AtomX Expansion Module
Gently slide the battery into the battery slot until it clicks into position

Most AtomX Expansion Modules also allow for stacking on top of one another. This allows you to take advantage of the features of multiple modules at the same time.
The AtomX menu will display the attached modules and the stacking order. Specifically, the modules will be labeled on screen to indicate which one is the Base Module and which is the Top Module.
To update firmware of a module, attach the module directly to the NINJA V and power it up.
If a module is at the top of a stack, then it will not update.
When stacking AtomX modules, ensure that the AtomX SDI module is the BASE MODULE and the AtomX SYNC module is the TOP MODULE. It is not physically possible to stack another module on top of the SYNC module.
You cannot have an AtomX SDI Expansion Module stacked on top of another AtomX SDI Expansion Module.
Modules cannot be attached to an Atomos CONNECT
