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

Regulator firmware and software WATTconfig Mx

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 in other OS versions or other Linux distributions.

Since version 1.6 we provide only 64-bit versions of WATTconfig software, up to version 1.5 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: S-Connect protocol.
Added: MODBUS protocol (RTU on RS485 line, TCP on Ethernet line).
Added: Indicator for external output switching (Output status pane).
Added: SD card error indicator (Error and info status).
Added: S-Connect device error indicator (Error and info status).
Added: binary input function for ANDI inputs (Input settings tab).
Added: Duplicate to input field (Output status pane).
Added: Measured by input field (Output settings tab).
Added: Low tariff input settings (Other settings tab).
Added: RS485 settings (Other settings tab).
Added: Input settings for statistics (Other settings tab).
Added: S-Connect configuration tab.
Added: Logical inputs and outputs needed for S-Connect protocol.
Added: Ukrainian language.
Removed: SC-Router related error states (Error and info status).
Removed: Measurement source (Input settings tab).
Removed: Logical WLS outputs (Output settings tab).
Removed: Wireless station table (Other settings tab).
Removed: Russian language.
Fixed: Bug in relay prepend calculation. Lower prio relay did not prepend when higher prio relay was restricted by time schedule.
Fixed: wrong behavior of power measurement at higher frequencies than 50Hz.
Fixed: Caching of static webserver files.
Fixed: Temperature sensor failure no longer blocks entire control but only respective time schedules.

Fixed: ANDI function not configured correctly after configuration write when changing from PT1000 to another function or vice versa.
Fixed: Sometimes upon ANDI function change the ANDI hardware was not switched correctly just after writing the configuration, and device restart was needed.
Fixed: Bug in ANDI power calculation when ANDI was set to S0 pulse counter. Wrong value was shown after reset and configuration write.
Fixed: Problem with PWM output mode with minimum power greater than zero. The softstart (meant for heat pumps or vehicle chargers) could run without assigned priority.

Fixed: Missing geographic location settings in web interface.
Fixed: Missing priorities for WLS outputs in web interface when using sc-gateway.
Fixed: Malfunctioning inverted output mode (relay, PWM) for WLS outputs.
Fixed: Disabled PWM range for WLS outputs in PWM mode because there is no support for it in WLS communication protocol.
Fixed: Incorrectly used inverted and PWM range options for outputs in remote control mode (with inserted sc-router).
Fixed: Incorrect values in excitation fields in case of local test in remote control mode (with inserted sc-router).
Fixed: Translation bug in Polish and Russian: Relay output function swapped with proportional function.
