R3981, October 27, 2017
- Added support for dual-cell systems with board part numbers 710395-30 and 710395-32, which require firmware R3980 or higher.
R3978, Octoboer 10, 2017
- Added support for a major new feature in the concurrent firmware release (R3979) to provide analysis of soiling data native in the firmware, reducing the need for data post-processing on the user's platform. The firmware now calculates filtered daily averages of the minute-by-minute soiling data and makes the daily averages available on new registers. The new registers should be the user's primary outputs for soiling results. The minute-by-minute results are still available but are now restricted to a user-settable time and irradiance window. This new release of the RDE300 Engineering Client includes additional screens for setting up the new features.
- Added support for the 365-day rolling history of daily average soiling results stored in the RDE flash memory in the concurrent firmware release.
- Added support for setting up PV module temperature measurement using the open-circuit voltage (Voc) method, as an alternative to using a back-of-module RTD.
- Note: To install the software, change the extension of the installer to ".exe" and then execute it.
- Note: Use this version of the RDE300 Engineering Client with the concurrently-released R3979 version of the RDE300 Firmware (500044-03) and Rev H of the User Guide (880039).
