Hi

I appear to have this CBUS UCM, but I DO have a U2 socket, which is not populated. Is this able to have the upgrade?

Thanks

If you have a U2 socket, then you can add an EEPROM min 64 Kbits eg 24LC64 so the baseboard is compatible.
However the top submodule must be the newer ST7 type which is shown in the photo

If you upgrade the UCM/Cbus1 firmware to UCM/Cbus2, the status bar will show you if the EEPROM is missing, or the submodule is not the ST7 type.
You can then get the submodule or EEPROM, or alternatively you can downgrade back to UCM/CBUS1


Do NOT try to solder an IC Socket or eeprom into the PCB if there is no IC socket on the UCM/Cbus baseboard as it requires special soldering toold

When will the CBUS 2 board with the latest SIM be available for Purchase?
Laser systems in the UK are still showing the very old CBUS UCM on the web that is the version I have that doesn't have Firmware upgrade capability, I assume they are selling a much newer firmware upgradeable version but from the above post it is still not clear to me which bits of the new firmware solution need the new SIM and which don't?
I don't want to buy something now and find I have to upgrade again in a few weeks to get the complete solution.
Thanks
Paul

The Cbus submodule that supports UCM/CBUS2 has been allocated the part number CBUS01


You should be able to order this, but they may not have immediate stock as this is a new part number
However all UCM/CBUS1 that were sold over the last few months at least do come with this submodule and hence can be upgraded to UCM/Cbus2 firmware without any problem

UCM/Cbus 1 7.045 firmware has been released, see http://www.comfortforums.com/view_topic.php?id=3773&forum_id=85

This means that if you have UCM/Cbus1, to upgrade to UCM/Cbus2, you can right click on the UCM/Cbus1 and select "Check for Firmware Upgrades" to upgrade to the latest firmware. With the latest UCM/CBUS1 firmware ou can then do an upgrade to UCM/CBUS2by downloading the firmware and selecting "Upgrade from Local fiile"

Problem in importing cbz files

Comfigurator up to 3.8.7 does not separate the different C-Bus networks. Instead ot reads  the group addresses from multiple networks in the cbz file and causes duplicate group addresses. To workaround, please delete networks from the project if there are more than 1 network
