The latest UCM Firmware can be downloaded from http://www.cytech.biz/ucm_firmware.html?category_id=101
Instructions for upgrading the UCM firmware can be found on http://www.comfortforums.com/forum4/1782.html

This UCM firmware applies to UCM/USB, UCM/Ethernet and UCM/232

Version 6.002 (6 June 2011)
Bug Fixes
  1. Fixed BUG from UCM 5.203  Comfort bypass zone does not get reported correctly to UCM
  2. Fixed BUG overflow of rs485 transmit buffer caused endless loop leading to watchdog reset. This does not occur in mormal; circumstances
Improvements and New Features
  1. Implemented CM command for UCM for Control Menu Commands for iPhone app.
  2. Implemented UB05 firmware Upgrade for UCM directly connected to PC. Instructions on how to upgrade the UCMs own firmware can be found in the forum http://www.comfortforums.com/forum4/2283.html
  3. DT will not be reported when seconds change only is reported from the PC

Please note that new systems may not come with the latest firmware due to existing sticks in the supply chain. Installers should upgrade to the latest firmware before installation. Existing installed systems do not need the upgraded firmware unless the functionality is to be updated or there are bugs to be fixed which affect the installation.

I have a UCM/Ethernet that could do with the update.

Anyone in the UK want to arrange a firmware upgrade?

Great.  I see you've implemented my request for commands for the control menu.  Where can I get the protocol?

Thanks,

Clinton.

I see the rs232 document has been updated with the CM command.  Thanks.


Is there anyway I can get the menu item text through the protocol?

Cheers,

Clinton.

The menu text cannot be obtained from Comfort as they are not stored in Comfort, only in Comfigurator

UCM 6.002 can be used to upgrade its own firmware so that you do not need another UCM with a programming cable in future
See instructions at http://www.comfortforums.com/forum4/2283.html

Just something I found with the new firmware, the DT command doesn't return the current Date & Time as stated by the Serial protocol documentation.

DT without any parameters will cause the UCM to send the current date and time in a DT report

You are right, that seems to be a bug that crept in due to the changes in handling date and time recently. The engineers will look at it in the backroom

Hey,

I just want to say thank you Cytech for version 6.xxx of the UCM firmware.  It makes updating firmware a simple and quick task. 

I can finally see the day ahead when I'll be able to upgrade all of my UCM types and the mainboard firmware without having to take remove the panel cover for access and fiddle with programming cables. Hoorah!.  My cover has been off so many times in the last couple of years, the 4 screws start to unscrew themselves whenever the screwdriver is within ten feet of their slots; they are that loose!  :D

Well done on a great new feature.

Julian

Is this applicable to the Universal UCM - seems to imply no in this document. But I see no separate folder to the U-UCM.

Thnx

Universal UCM is an "external" UCM which can be upgraded by the Comfort bus if its firmware is 6.xxx
