New Bitronics® Firmware

70 Series Release Version 3.07

Firmware, Configurator, and Utilities CD were released in early November. Features include:

  • Increased pre- and post-trigger times in the disturbance recorders.
  • Corrected a minor issue detected in v3.05 and v3.06 that made the Con­figurator incompatible with older versions of ­firmware under rare occurrences.
  • Improved BiView functionality with multi-drop RS-485 (BiView v3.020).
  • Improved Retriever software for bringing back record fi­les via Modem (Retriever v1.18).
  • Reduced available recording space when no extra flash is ordered from 4MB to 1MB (Firmware v3.070 and v2.240) to prevent issues related to
    sharing RAM space between firmware and recording.
  • The 64MB flash memory option will be eliminated effective January 1, 2012, leaving the 256MB and 512MB options for recording needs.

  • Modbus and DNP serial address settings are now con­figurable in front panel menu.
