Thanks for the update Tor.  I'd like to request an instruction video for the Signal Logger get added to your Youtube page.  You mention HWD support... will most MC controllers support this?

It looks like this release mostly concentrated on bug fixes, not much in the way of new functionality. Not necessarily a bad thing but I have been hoping that the functionality for displays will be enhanced.

It appears that there is currently very little HWD support for the signal logger. I have tired MC088, MC050, MC038, SC050, DP610TM, DP720 & DP570 and none of these appear to support the signal logger with the most current HWD versions available in the Update Centre.

Will there be updates to the HWD files to support this? Which units do currently support it?

Hello,

Yes, I believe the signal logger is only supported by some versions of the XL controller.  I'm waiting for response from the developers about what the plans are for the future.
The signal logger video is in the video list, it just need to be made.  ;)


Hang in there.
Best regards

Hello,

As of now only new products will support this function, like the XL104.
If there would be high demand for SC, MC and DM devices this needs to get pushed by product management. So let your Danfoss sales person know if there is a demand for this.

Have a nice day.
