- Better ModBUS TCP Support from Logic
- Onboard Logic Script now has on the fly syntax checking to help catch and highlight accidental mistakes
- Onboard Logic support for making web requests and running a web server, ideal for exchanging data between Q5’s or for sending JSON formatted measurements to a remote server.
- Onboard Logic has been simplified and importing the built in functions is no longer required.
A complete migration guide is being published, contact FlexSCADA for immediate assistance.
- Added Unit ID option to MorningStar plugin allowing multiple chargers to share a common IP address
- BOOL type custom feeds now show up correctly on the onboard display
- More responsive web server
- Resolved issue which resulted in a occasional random reboot when ping probes or temp sensors were added and removed.
- Fixed issue that prevented or delayed config from being applied under certain circumstances
- Logic scripts from prior firmware versions may not operate correctly until changes are made, a complete migration guide is planned, contact us for immediate assistance.
Brief summary of logic changes required
- Function definitions at the top of code is no longer required
- All peripherals now have built in functions for access, refer to the built in examples for reference
- Scripting function for querying when a digital temp sensor was last updated
- Scripting function for querying if the ADC is operating correctly
- Support for interfacing to the BME280 and BME680 temperature, pressure and humidity sensors over the digital expansion port I2C bus.
- ModbusTCP Discrete Input polling support to the onboard scripting library
- Device time update from web interface
Updated Features / Bug Fixes
- Improved memory card support (reliability and speed)
- Improved digital temperature sensor bus stability and error handling
- Misc web interface updates
- SNMP MIB file
- Customers using the modbus functions from logic scripting will need to make changes, see migration from V8x to V85 (Below)
Migrating V8X to V85
Changes were made to the onboard scripting functions that altered the way modbus getReg and setReg were used, instead of returning the value immediatly they return the status of the call, the value is then later queried with a call to mbResult() function. This is a change from the previous method of requesting the status of the last modbus operation.
See the below change as an example
Please refer to the onboard device examples for exact syntax for each of the new functions.
No other changes are necessary to update to V85
