Controllers / Re: Controller Release Notes
« Last post by Tor on February 22, 2023, 01:11:32 PM »

As far as I know the only way to get the release note for the HWDs is to download and install it.
To have a separate document with changes in the Update Center, that can be read before installing, has been up for discussion. But I don't know how far it got.

Have a nice day.
Controllers / Controller Release Notes
« Last post by sfl_cntrl on February 21, 2023, 02:50:26 PM »
Where do I locate the release notes for new controller firmware versions? I see v2.30.0 has been pushed for the SC050-120 controllers, but would like to read about the changes before installing... Is this changelog available anywhere?
Off topic / Resources for Eaton HFX Controller Troubleshooting
« Last post by GreaseMonkey on February 16, 2023, 12:51:23 AM »
Hello Everyone.  I am in the process of learning the PLUS+1 programming language and have been lurking around this forum for a couple of weeks.  Obviously several of you are extremely skilled, and I've found a lot of answers to questions by searching the forum. 

Today I'm dealing with a different problem - troubleshooting a particular fault code in an Eaton HFX32M controller.   From my understanding, now that Danfoss owns Eaton, the HFX product line is considered legacy product.  I've had a difficult time finding resources online to help with my troubleshooting process.  I understand that that isn't PLUS+1 related, but I'm hoping that maybe some of you have enough experience with Eaton controllers to suggest other forums or websites that might have information about these controllers beyond what is listed on the Danfoss Powersource website. 

Any and all suggestions are appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

My company is new to PLUS+1, but we'll be at Con Expo booth C22302.  We've used Eaton HFX controllers in the past, but we're making the transition to PLUS+1 and I'm learning how to program in PLUS+1 Guide.  I would love to meet anyone that wants to stop by and say Hello.

I use GitHub and host in the cloud, so yes to using a server.

It's a very low cost service.  Basically you just pay for LFS data packs and as long as your not versioning display *.lhx files, you won't spend much.

I use ToitoiseGit as a GUI client.  Its free and easy to use.
Code sharing / Re: J1939 Receiving Large Message (EC, FEE3)

What is in the rest of your code?  The way the Rx block work, they "absorb" the message.  If this is added after say a DM1 Rx, it will never see the TP messages because they are already taken by DM1.   You basically have to have a central TP receiver that then distributes to places where it is used.

Anyhow, sorry for digging up an old thread, hope you solved the problem!

Thanks for your response.
What configuration do you use?
Do you use a repository server?

I use GitHub and TortoiseGit.  It works as well as can be hoped...  I turn on LFS for nearly all of the PLUS+1 files since they are nearly all binaries.  I also set Tortoise to use the Danfoss compare scs as my diff tool.  The LFS works properly and transparently where it will get old versions for compares if they are not on your local computer.

You can of course merge files with PLUS+1, just as you can merge any binary file.  Any binary merge in Git is a bit ugly which is why for binary files there are locks in Git.  This is probably the best practice, however, it does limit how many developers can work on something at once.

Danfoss also has the "project view" which helps to know which of the many files need to be under version control and which are junk artifacts that can be ignored.

The problem with binaries is that you have to rely on the binary maker for diff and merge tools.  Danfoss does have a diff viewer, but it is a little buggy and not as reliable as one would hope for accurately finding diffs.  It also cannot tell the difference between "graphical" changes and functional changes.  For example, if you move something on a page that doesn't change the underlying code (say for formatting reasons), it will still highlight the change and you can't segregate between functional and non functional changes.

Danfoss does not offer a merge tool.  You have to do it yourself manually where you open instances of the diff tool, module viewer, and GUIDE and do the merge manually.  It isn't too bad because as you work, you can just re-launch the diff tool as you go to confirm the changes.

I also looked at PlasticSCM that is designed for more novice users as well as being focused on binaries, but it seems that for the price, Git + Tortoise is probably the way to go.  I'll also say, I find Github desktop pretty useless since it is so focused on being a merge tool that it is really a bit pointless for GUIDE and I find Tortoise more helpful.

I agree 100%.  Also nice would be DBC file support for J1939.

I upvote your request!

Contact the PLUS+1 Helpdesk:
Include to which controller and what version of the HWD in the description.

Have a nice day.
