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 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, MAC OS X 10.11 El Capitan and later. However, it can work on other OS versions or other Linux distributions (support is provided only for Ubuntu).

Only 32-bit versions are released. You may need to install appropriate 32-bit versions of system libraries to run on 64-bit versions of Linux.

Newest version:
Added all time internal statistics.
Added web client based XML data exchange, configurable via new button in Other settings tab.
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, available in Log tab.
Added wrong voltage value L1 error reporting failure in voltage measurement circuit (does not block normal operation).
Added DC source overload error reporting overloading of internal DC source.
Added Internal DC source voltage field in Other settings tab.
Added Optimize internal relay consumption option in Other settings tab.
Added Require better HTTP security option in Other settings tab.
Fixed timing for DQ bus, some digital temperature sensors did not work.
Fixed wrong negative temperature values for DS18B20 type sensors.
Modified Missing voltage L1 error, it only reports failure in voltage detection circuit which is needed for normal operation.
Modified time server hostname which is now stored directly in the controller. It uses newly added DNS protocol to obtain time server IP.

5. version:
Added support for extended measurement range (Mx 100A type).
Fixed timing for DQ bus, some digital temperature sensors did not work.
Fixed incorrect behavior of relay outputs in some cases (sometimes they did not switch off when they should and vice versa).
Fixed one day delay when changing to daylight saving time (DST) and vice versa.
Fixed wrong SDDx value in daily stats XML file (stat_day.xml) in certain cases.
Modified behavior of "Measuring L1 voltage failed": Eventual failure in voltage measurement circuit does not block normal operation anymore (fixed 230V value is used then). Only failure in voltage detection circuit blocks normal operation because it is needed for it.
