  The dispersive sections of magnetic bunch compressor chicanes at free-electron lasers are excellent candidates for beam energy measurements. In the rectangular beamline sections of the bunch compressors at FLASH, energy beam position monitors (EBPM) with transversely mounted stripline pickups are installed. In this paper, we present the upgrade of the read-out electronics for signal detection of the EBPM installed at FLASH. The system is based on the MTCA.4 standard and reuses already available MTCA.4 compliant modules. This is also true for gateware and software development which fits into standard MTCA.4 framework development. The performance of the instrument was studied at FLASH during user operation and the results are presented.
