|GS-EDRV100 Revision History|
Description of Problems / Additions / Changes
Added support for the DURApulse GS4 drive.
In previous versions of the firmware, the GS-EDRV100 would
auto-baud to whatever the drive's serial port was set to, the reconfigure
the drive's serial port to 19200, 8,N,1,RTU, the re-auto-baud to those new
settings. In this version, if the drive's baud rate is lower than 19200, it
will continue to operate as before, but if the drive's port is set to a baud
rate higher than 19200, the GS-EDRV100 will leave it at the higher baud
The GS-EDRV100 will now read the firmware version of the GS1,
GS2 or GS3 to determine the parameter set that will be accessed. This
removes the need to use specific versions of the GS-EDRV100 firmware with
specific versions of GS1, GS2 or GS3 firmware revisions - requires GS1, GS2
or GS3 firmware version 1.04 or greater.
Fixed a problem where the Name and/or Description would not
show up properly in Do-more Designer's Ethernet I/O Slave configuration
Fixed a problem that prevented some software packages
(KEPDirect, ThinknDo, etc. ) from being able to write outputs.
For all GSx drives, the value for StatusMonitor1 will now be
read from 0x2100 instead of P6.31.
Fixed a problem where the Ethernet chip was not set to
When the GS-EDRV100 powers up, it reads 9.04 & 9.05 from the GSx drive, then propagates the value in 9.05 to the Ethernet’s watchdog timer value as it’s default.
When the DM1E’s Ethernet I/O Master fires up, it will overwrite the Ethernet watchdog timer with a new timeout value that is calculated from the Ethernet I/O Slave Setup screen values: (Poll Rate + (Timeout * (Retrys +1 ) ) )
While in Do-more Mode, using the GSx keypad to change the value in 9.05 will no longer cause that value to overwrite the Ethernet watchdog timeout.
When not in Do-more Mode, using the GSx keypad to
change the value is 9.05 will cause the new value to be propagated to the Ethernet side watchdog
If the GS-EDRV100 is being used as an Ethernet I/O Slave
device for a Do-more CPU, the Do-more CPU puts the GS-EDRV100 into 'Do-more
mode' to assist the Ethernet I/O Master function. In Do-more Mode, the
GS-EDRV100 does not respond to NetEdit as it normally would. If the
GS-EDRV100 looses its connection to the Do-more CPU, it will drop out of
Do-more mode to allow normal interaction with NetEdit.
Adds support for new address ranges in GS3 drive running
firmware version 1.05 or later (there are no changes if connected to a GS1
or GS2 drive)
version of the GS-EDRV100 firmware is not approved for use with
DuraPulse (GS3) drives that have firmware versions earlier than v1.05
Minimum version required for use as an Ethernet I/O Slave for
a Do-more CPU (requires Do-more v1.1)
