New Features

  • Maximize your work efficiency with our new persistent point name grouping feature.

Bug Fixes

  • (SDS 1.3.3 / Firmware V3.16.3) Fixed issue in PropCtrl (Proportional Control) instruction where it would calculate the wrong output value specifically when the output object type was configured as a result float (RES_FLT). This issue affected firmware versions 3.14.2 – 3.16.2 released with SDS 1.3.0-1.3.2.
  • (SDS 1.3.2 / Firmware V3.16.1) Fixed inability to connect to and configure controllers when tunneling over BACnet/MSTP.

Persistent Point Name Grouping

Users can now save up to 5 groups of point names, and quickly switch between them. After selecting a group, the existing Pin feature can be used to bring all selected points to the top of the Names table. All five point name groups will be remembered based on the controller’s serial number, so you can quickly pick up where you left off, hours, days, or even months later.

To create a group, first select from Group 1 through Group 5 using the Group [x] dropdown. Then use the instant search box to find each point and select it. When ready to save your group, click the Update group button. If needed, clear the instant search box and then click the Pin button to watch all selected points come right to the top!
