DM430 new hardware file
« on: January 27, 2022, 12:43:27 PM »
Update Center recently downloaded a new hardware file for the DM430, ver:70507693v100.  What's the difference between this and the hardware file I'm currently using, ver:70298395v150?  There's nothing in the revision history and they appear to be for the same display.

Hello dlewis,

This was actually news to me.
After asking around the new HWD is a legacy HWD that are able to handle the old screen editor as well as the new. This to make the migration from old DP2x0 projects to the DM430 easier.  There might be other differences as well.

The lack of information in the documentation is reported, and I understand that this will be updated as soon as possible.


Have a nice day.
Best regards,

Should we expect to see an obsolescence notification on the DP2X0 series in the near future?  I have a lot of units in the field running on DP250s...

According to a PIB from Danfoss, the DP250 entered legacy status in February 2019, with inventory expected to last 2-3 years at that time. Hard to say when they will officially be out but I would plan on it being soon.

Hello,

We got some question about this HWD.
Due to some issues the HWD was pulled back from the PLUS+1 Update Center. I don't have any information when this will be released again.

I'm sorry about that.

Hello.
The legacy HWD files for migration of DP2x0 to DM430 are available in the release candidate style (there are minor errors in some of the templates).
However if you are in big need and wants to use the HWDs please contact PLUS+1 Helpdesk by creating a case at http://plus1helpdesk.danfoss.com and ask for the legacy Dm430 HWDs.
The HWDs will not be added to PLUS+1 Update Center to avoid mismatch with the DM430 HWDs used for new program development.
