The Universal UCM 7.065 firmware has the following changes
  1. Supports baud rates 57600, 76800. This requires Comfigurator 3.9.9
  2. Allows its own firmware to be upgraded via Rs485 Bus. That means you can right click on the Universal UCM in Comfigurator and select "Check for Updates". Note this is applicable for future upgrades to Unversal firmware version 7, not for upgrade from version 6 to 7

Known Bugs
  1. Send commands to Universal starting with "S" do not work. This affects Rako scene commands for example
Please download the firmware from http://www.cytech.biz/product_details.php?item_id=304

IS this beta still the latest as checking for firmware still shows the old firmware? Cheers Stuart

Universal UCM 7.117
  • Fixed BUG when received message has a terminator, the compare with template failed because the terminator is saved in buffer, and compared with device to comfort string which is without the terminator
  • Added Delay between successive transmit messages to external device of 600 ms.  Some devices need a delay between messages to avoid corruption eg Lutron

All,

After upgrading to 7.117 my UCM/universal to Rako serial connection stopped working. Commands from Comfort to Rako worked but commands from Rako to Comfort appeared to miss the last digit of the message.

Using a terminal program to monitor, Rako is sending the command:-
<105:000:049:001

This message is terminated with CR LF

The following is received by comfort taken from the I/O monitor window:-
TT12<105:000:049:00

Until now I had the terminator byte set up as 0D (CR as described in the Comfort/Rako app note). I changed this to 0A (LF) and the full message was received again but due to the terminator character being LF this broke messages going in the opposite direction back out from Comfort to Rako as a CR is required for the Rako bridge to execute the command.
 
I have reverted to UCM/Universal Firmware 7.066 in the meantime and all is currently working.
Please can someone at Cytech check this? I have attached the universal config for info.

Cheers,Jon
