Updates for WATTrouter M

USB interface driver

http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

Note: Please in case of communication problems always upgrade this driver to the newest version!

Regulator firmware, software WATTconfig, WATTconfig for Android

Before updating please always read the newest user manual.

Please always update BOTH software and firmware for your device!

The WATTconfig software runs on Windows 7 and later, Ubuntu 16.04 and later, OS X 10.11 El Capitan and later. However, it can work on other OS versions or other Linux distributions.

Since version 3.0 we provide only 64-bit versions of WATTconfig software, up to version 2.5 they are 32-bit. The main reason for this change was MacOS Catalina, which dropped 32-bit support entirely. That's why we decided to move to 64-bit everywhere.

Newest version:
Added: Realtime chart on Statistics tab.
Added: Output test improvements - output test timeout etc.
Added: DHCP client to configure DNS server IP or entire network settings.
Added: Date and time syncing via time server.
Added: Timer status fields for relay output on-delay and off-delay timers.
Added: PWM output range to support PWM/0-10V subrange (eg 1-10V etc.).
Added: Weekdays in time schedules.
Added: Import of monthly and yearly statistics from CSV file, available through new buttons in Statistics tab.
Added: Error list to log history of device errors (volatile only, however).
Added: DC source overload error reporting overloading of internal DC source.
Added: Internal DC source voltage field in Other settings tab.
Added: Require better HTTP security option in Other settings tab.
Added: Automatic firmware update to compatible version in Wattconfig.
Modified: Substantially reworked the firmware and software, now based on WATTrouter Mx, uses many of its features supported by the hardware.
Modified: Default MAC address to reflect newly assigned range by IEEE.
Modified: Behavior of SSR outputs during time schedule where its Power field was not set to 100%.
Modified: Output test now respects Maximum power and Full power configuration.
Modified: Inverted option now available for output PWM mode as well.
Modified: Substantially reworked output 3f modes.
Removed: Unreliable automatic phase order detection in Input settings tab.
Removed: Unreliable energy counter reset mode "at production start" in Other settings tab.
