Software

Xpert2 v3.22.0.9 Beta

Published to BETA 07/27/2017

Change Highlights

  • Improved MODBUS TCP master communications (e.g., MBSensor and MBOut), by flushing input prior to sending a new command. This ensures any late response by the MOBDUS slave is not interpreted as the response to the new command.
  • Added support for enabling MODBUS RS485 over COM9.
  • Renamed “Session Type” setting (introduced in 3.22.0.2), to “Tx Protocol”.
  • Fixed issue introduced in 3.22.0.2 where conversion of LAN and GPRS transmit settings in old setup resulted in a blank Session Type (Tx Protocol), and hence, a failed transmissions.

Published to BETA 06/23/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added new “BUFR” format support to Satlink, GPRS, Iridium, and LAN transmissions

Xpert2 v3.22.0.7 Beta

Published to BETA 05/13/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added support for automatic retransmission of missed transmissions, to LAN, GPRS, and Iridium
  • “Center in Window” option is now automatically cleared and disabled when selecting a EUMETSAT satellite type for use with Satlink, to ensure consistency with EUMETSAT transmission timing requirements

Xpert2 v3.22.0.6 Beta

Published to BETA 05/03/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added support for selecting “EUMET HRDCP 1200” satellite type for use with Satlink, and renamed “MSG” satellite type to “EUMET SRDCP 100”
  • Fixed minor bug where the SRAcc (solar radiation accumulator) block would accept only integer threshold values
  • Fixed minor bug where MODBUS settings Delay 1 and Delay 2 were not disabled and ignored when using MODBUS over RS485
  • Fixed minor bug where the satellite type for random transmissions was used to compute Satlink output power even when random transmissions were disabled

Xpert2 v3.22.0.5 Beta

Published to BETA 04/12/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added CSV transmission format (LAN, GPRS)
  • Minor update to Hydromet Cloud protocol (session type “1”), to expect either server acknowledge or login, but not both

Xpert2 v3.22.0.4 Beta

Published to BETA 04/11/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added support for revised Hydromet Cloud protocol (session type “1”), to improve reliability of transmissions
  • Fixed bug in the Nortek block where the com port was not closed on recording stop, requiring a system reboot to restart properly
  • Fixed bug where HTTP header needed to specify “HTTP/1.1”, rather than the improper value, “HTTP/1.X”

Xpert2 v3.22.0.3 Beta

Published to BETA 03/23/2017

Change Highlights

  • Fixed bug causing installed offline setup program to crash on startup (bug first introduced in beta 3.22.0.1)
  • Fixed minor bug in multiple IP address support added in beta 3.22.0.2, where transmission success was not computed properly

  • Added new feature to support transmissions to multiple IP addresses using GPRS 
  • Added new feature to support using a Basic program to provide  a custom formatter for LAN transmissions

Xpert2 v3.22.0.1 Beta

Published to BETA 02/01/2017

Change Highlights

  • Added a new feature to enable telemetry transmissions to Hydromet Cloud using the LAN. 
  • Fixed a bug where the login attempt by server during a Hydromet Cloud telemetry session would fail, if the user name and password were blank. Note that only Autopoll is currently able to issue commands to the station during this type of session. 

Xpert2 v3.21.0.3 Beta

Published to BETA 12/16/2016

Change Highlights

  • Added support for SNTP time-synchronization
  • Fixed bug where use of a log immediately following its creation (i.e., without rebooting the system), would cause a crash. This bug was introduced in 3.19.0.8

Published to BETA 11/16/2016

Change Highlights

  • The random “Trigger” group block now allows setting of “00:00:00” for data interval. When set as such, the random parameter blocks will no longer filter on data meeting the group’s schedule. Instead, any data received by the random parameter block is buffered for transmission.
  • Fixed a bug in the modbus serial client (MBSensor and MBOut blocks), where blocks scheduled to run at the same time could eventually result in a failure to retrieve all the data for a scheduled slot. In this error case, the system log would report “Failed obtaining port lock”.

  • Updates to Xterm to improve reliability when performing system upgrades:
    • Xterm now allows more time for the logger to boot
    • Xterm ignores hardware flow control while the logger boots, to avoid misinterpretations of line state that could result in failures to send data. This change fixes cases where Xterm reports it failed bypassing Autoexec
  • Added ability to Xterm to transfer entire directories to and from the logger
  • Fixed a bug in Xterm.exe where passing /NOHS on the command line will default DTR to HIGH (was LOW)
  • Added new “VWire” sensor block, used to read multiple vibrating wire sensors whose configuration is defined by an associated csv file stored on Flash Disk
  • Improved ability to recover from a specific corruption of Flash Disk
  • SDK now contains previously missing telemetry.lib and header files

Xpert2 v3.18.0.9 Beta

Published to BETA 07/10/2015

Change Highlights

  • The completion resistor setting in the AirTemp properties dialog is now disabled for 0010 and 0020 (linear) sensors, since it is unused
  • The Const block now offers an “Autosave” property that can be used to enable/disable saving the setup file when the Const value changes due to a kick-back (e.g., when a new value is written to a ComsTag block that is downstream from the Const block and then “kicked-back” to the Const block)

Xpert2 v3.18.0.8 Beta

Published to BETA 07/08/2015

Change Highlights

  • Improved ability to detect insertion of SD cards and USB thumb drives. SD cards are detected more quickly, and the system now waits long enough to detect even those USB drives that take extra time to load

Xpert2 v3.18.0.7 Beta

Published to BETA 06/30/2015

Change Highlights

  • Fixed a bug that could lead to an SMS transmission not being attempted when a GPRS transmission failure occurs
  • Fixed a bug that would result in two measurement threads stalling due to a race condition between accessing the global tags list and the setup blocks list. This scenario was most commonly seen when using the MinMax block with an active “relative value” (tag) defined
  • The Basic Val() function now rejects out of bound characters and performs a sanity check on the input string length. These changes help ensure the system remains stable even if a junk string is used as input to the Val() function
  • Fixed a minor memory leak in the Satlink self-timed and random parameter blocks that are used to store data for transmission
  • The RS232 block now requires the number of “skipped” characters to be received before looking for the EOL string. Prior to this change, the block would stop reading the input string if the EOL were detected within the initial set of characters that fell within the “skipped” character range

Xpert2 v3.18.0.6 Beta

Published to BETA 06/19/2015

Change Highlights

  • Added support for HSPA/HSPDA/3G cell modem

Xpert2 v3.18.0.5 Beta

Published to BETA 06/11/2015

Change Highlights

  • Updated Basic Val() function to reject invalid input characters and to perform a sanity check on the length of the input string

Xpert2 v3.18.0.4 Beta

Published to BETA 05/28/2015

Change Highlights

  • Fixed a bug in GetTag block preventing ability to get a tag value from another station over TCP/IP

Xpert2 v3.18.0.3 Beta

Published to BETA 05/22/2015

Change Highlights

  • NOS formatter now starts tsunami data collection one index back from most recent to handle cusp cases where data is not yet available
  • NOS report generator now uses “Recent.Dat” for start tag and “Recent.dat” for end tag, when generating recent.dat
  • PB200 block now uses a 2 second timeout waiting for data from sensor

Xpert2 v3.18.0.2 Beta

Published to BETA 05/21/2015

Change Highlights

  • Added support for Janus HSPA910T modem for use with GPRS telemetry
  • Tolerate extra, trailing bytes in PDU of MODBUS TCP responses

Xpert2 v3.18.0.1 Beta

Published to BETA 03/27/2015

Change Highlights

  • Enhancements to RS232 block (GPRS232.sll):
    • New “Parse starting index” property enables selecting a subset of fields from a sensor result, where the subset may start with the first parameter, or not. For example, you may use the RS232 block to measure a sensor returning 4 parameters, but you’re only interested in logging parameter 2. To achieve this, you would set “Parse starting index” to 2.
    • New “Display unused params on sensors tab” option enables hiding of “unused” parameters on the sensor tab, where an “unused” parameter is defined by a parameter whose block output does not have any blocks connected to it. Continuing with the example above, if you only want parameter 2 to show up on the sensors tab, you would clear the check for “Display unused params on sensors tab”.
    • New “output init” commands are available (up to 5), to be sent to the sensor on each measurement, prior to the get data command. This allows you to send special configuration or conditioning commands to prepare for the get data command, when needed.
  • LEADS sll notes now exclude extra white space before and after the note text, and will always have an EOF appended when added to the log. In addition, added a new CCSAIL command to retrieve model type, firmware version, and serial number.
  • Updated the default webserver header text to support enhanced browser capabilities
