[4.8.2]

Features

  • Added support for eML (engcon Machine Link), needed for connection with Volvo Smart Connect (2270, 6055)
  • Added CAN joystick and CAN auxiliary hydraulic control support in DC2 Cabin module. (2770)
  • Added AGW configuration tab in MicroConf. (6055)
  • Added QSC configuration tab in MicroConf. (3040)

Fixes

  • Fixed bug that may trigger safe state when clearing alarms. (7415)
  • Fixed bug that prevented access to menu options and to exit menu. (7268)
  • Fixed bug in SDO response parsing in MicroConf. A bug with potential affects for ePS, AGW and QSC configuration tabs. (6954)

[4.7.3]

Features

  • Operating hours for the tilt rotator module. Hours can not be tracked retroactively, but will be logged for usage after the upgrade. (1372)
  • Option to configure tilt sensor mounting orientation in ePS tab. (5883)

Fixes

  • Feeder Swap configured using PWM1/2 and PWM4(a,b) now works as intended. (5103)
  • Startup logotype updated for the cabin module. (4628)
  • ePS tab information will now be cleared when device is disconnected. (5188)
Download

[4.7.2]

Features

  • PWM5/6 track control support. (286)
  • PWM1-4 changeable filter constant support. It is now possible to tweak the PWM filter constant for PWM1-4. This affects how quickly the current of the signal can change. This can be useful when configuring 24V feeder valves, but the depending on the characteristics of the valve in question it might not be enough to ensure satisfactory performance. Warning: This change is not backwards compatible with machines configured to use "SLOW" mode on PWM3 and/or PWM4 through custom parameter files, they have to be reconfigured using MicroConf to work properly if the CM is updated to v4.7.2 or later. Setting the filter constant to 13 on the PWM signals which were configured to use "SLOW" mode should result in the same valve behaviour as before updating the firmware for the CM. (2779)

[4.6.3]

Features

  • Make it possible for users to search an online repository for official engcon parameter files. If an installation has an official parameter file available, this will be mentioned in the provided manual alongside instructions for how the feature is used. (2949)
Download

[4.6.2]

Features

  • Constant flow support. (28)
  • Tilt sensor support. (1377)

Improvements

  • New ePS info/settings tab, it is now possible to view and manage the ePS sensors and the C2C. (1377)

Fixes

  • Fixed feeder max which was in effect when using PWM5 as feeder. (2747)
  • Disabled Bluetooth entries in the connection dialog if connected through USB, so that they are not clickable while parameters are being read. (2761)
  • Have the MicroConf background service wake up less frequently. (2745)
  • Remove legacy parameter file reporting functionality. (2998)
  • Display a disclaimer when MicroConf starts. (2749)
  • Fixed initial syncing of the tabs between MicroConf instances when connecting remotely. (1605)

Other

  • Version 3.6.0 removed as a bootloader option. (3817)

[4.5.1]

Improvements

  • Allow separate up/down ramps for Extra1 and Extra2. (2241)

Fixes

  • Fixed Bluetooth connectivity issues. (1795)
  • Fixed resetting of the cabin module after running a calibration wizard. Values will be set to zero about 1 second after it has stopped receiving data through USB or Bluetooth, but the minimum calibration for track control is not affected. (1358)
  • Fixed the feeder swap button getting blocked if it was affected during system start. (1335)
  • Fixed reversed short circuit alarms on X1:31 and X1:35. (1263)
  • Fixed tool lock when feeder swap is active. (1612)
  • Fixed MicroConf freezing on startup. (2494)
  • Fixed problems with advancing in wizards if LD2 is connected. (2496)
  • Updated MicroConf translations. (1796)
  • Updated MicroConf hints and descriptions. (1796)

[4.5.0]

Improvements

  • Adjustable value for "Tool lock feeder max". This helps adjusting tool lock sensitivity when mapping tool lock to a NO/NC-button or when using QSC for tool lock.
  • Firmware update other engcon modules through DC2 cabin module. It is now possible to firmware update modules such as CAN2CAN (ePS) and QSC with MSU (Microprop Software Updater) via USB cable to DC2 cabin module, you need MSU version 2.5 or higher and firmware version 4.5.0 or higher on DC2 cabin module.
  • Downgrade DC2 cabin/tilt modules with older firmware without installing older versions of microconf. It is only possible to upload firmware 3.6.0, 4.4.1 and the latest version, we strongly recommend using the latest version of the firmware.

Fixes

  • "Feed Swap" moved button select option from Feeder swap menu to input mapping to avoid dual function on same buttons.
  • 32-bit Windows support, version 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 only had 64-bit support for Java on Windows but now we support both 32- and 64-bit version of Windows.
  • Fixed GUI scale problems in MicroConf, this will solve the problem if you didn't see all functions and parameters in MicroConf GUI using a high resolution screen(s).
