Below is the full list of new features, bug fixes and improvements of RPCM Software 0.8.1:


What's New in Software 0.8.1(compared to 0.7.7)

- you can now set your own messages to be displayed on Physical Display

- you can now choose what RPCM will show on display after boot

- you can now disable beeper

- added configuration backup/restore functionality

- Web Interface: added possibility to show limits on graphs

- Web Interface: added language switching panel to configuration menu to allow users to switch language without logging out of the web interface

- Web Interface: added sorting by watchdog name and outlets in Automation

- Automation: added default support for the following miner types: Antminer S11, Antminer T15, Antminer S15, DragonMint T1, Whatsminer M3X, Claymore as well as lots of non-mining templates

- Automation: added ability to add several devices to single outlet and associate several outlets with single device - Automation: automation can now be configured via SSH CLI and REST API

- SNMP: new MIB files are available in web interface reflecting new devices and features (e.g. overvoltage)

- Firmware: this software release includes new firmware version 0.9.768 with lots of improvements

- REST API: added new endpoints (e.g. automation, turning on/off several outlets at once, beeper, recognition)

- Cloud: Input/Outlet names/descriptions are now exported to the Cloud to show them in graphs

- added support for RPCM 3x250 and RPCM DELTA

- added support for RPCM DC ATS 76A and RPCM DC 232A


Bug Fixes

- Logging: Fixed issues with messages that may have appeared incorrectly or not appear at all in journal

- Logging: fixed non-logging of ground loss and restoration

- SMTP: fixed skipping next recipients if sending messages to first ones failed

- Web Interface: fixed rounding and number of decimals in fraction part of some values in the interface

- Web Interface: fixed incorrect graphs scaling that may have appeared in some cases

- Web Interface: fixed bug that made it difficult to turn off recognition and beeper after they have been activated

- Web Interface: fixed several typos

- Web Interface: fixed SNMP traps count

- SSH CLI: Fixed issues that may have caused inability to log on via SSH

- SSH CLI: fixed issues with ping command

- Automation: fixed max TCP port number

- SNMP: fixed incorrect encapsulation of zero values

- NTP: fixed handling of some time zones

- Firmware update: fixed bug that may have lead to inability to update firmware in some rare cases


- Network: IP address acquisition process has improved, now RPCM continues attempts to get address via DHCP even after IPv4LL address has been set due to DHCP unavailability - which ensures that RPCM will be available after blackout if DHCP server takes longer time to appear on network than 1 minute

- RPCM Internals: Improved internal database organization within RPCM, which made RPCM work faster in interfaces

- SMTP: now you can configure RPCM to send email messages without authentication

- SMTP: HELO parameter is now optional

- SMTP: removed possibility to show configured passwords in web/ssh interfaces

- SMTP: improved handling of TLS/SSL connections - Web Interface: inlets now show in gray color when administratively down to reduce confusion

- Web Interface: all screens are better optimized for viewing from mobile devices

- Web Interface: improved compatibility with Edge, Firefox, Safari, Chrome browsers

- Web Interface: "About This RPCM" menu item now shows a lot of information about RPCM

- Web Interface: graphs now show grey zones for periods when data was not available (for example network connection is lost or experiencing delays) instead of just showing last values

- Web Interface: Recognition of whole device now turns on/off blinking for all inlets and outlets simultaneously instead of slowly one by one

- Web Interface: Cloud configuration panel now contains all values required to associate RPCM with the cloud

- Web Interface: Added counter of SMTP addressees in configuration panel

- Web Interface: Web app now forces reload if it detects it's getting information from RPCM with newer software

- Web Interface: You don't have to be to precise now when choosing watchdog from the list

- Web Interface: Significantly improved speed of appearance of information after logging in

- SSH CLI: improved and added missing help for some commands

- SSH CLI: logs are now displayed with coloring of parameters of interest

- Automation: watchdogs now double check if outlets have performed desired operation to avoid cases when outlet state was not changed due to too many requests

- Automation: improved speed and stability of watchdogs

- SNMP: significantly improved responsiveness of SNMP service

- SNMP: removed possibility to show configured passwords in web/ssh interfaces

- NTP: improved service stability

- Cloud: Improved stability and speed of the service

- Documentation: updated documentation and datasheets

- Resetting RPCM to Factory Defaults now resets all inlet/outlet states, limits etc


What's New in Firmware 0.9.768 (compared to 0.9.454)

New Features

- added support for limiting total input current at values lower than maximum permitted by input

- added support for simultaneous outlet switch on/off

- outlets with equal start-up delays will now turn on simultaneously

- added overvoltage protection with individual configuration of outlets

- added ability to disable beeper

- added white blinking indication of reversed polarity of inlet connection to ensure catching of short circuits to ground

- added pink blinking of outlets in malfunction condition to improve electric shock safety by showing users that voltage is on for outlet that is expected to be without voltage

- added support for RPCM 3x250 and RPCM DELTA

- added support for RPCM DC ATS 76A and RPCM DC 232A

Bug Fixes

- fixed bug with urgent and super urgent outlet turn offs

- fixed current and active power detection bugs

- fixed shifted voltage values for some generations of devices

- fixed bug with voltage values approximation that led to voltage jumping

- fixed saving of turned off states for outlets when delayed start-up procedure was not finished yet and power was lost, eliminating outlets staying off after 2 subsequent power blackouts

- fixed stopping delayed start-up procedure on manual outlet turn off/turn on to let administrators operate outlets while delayed start-up sequence is in progress

- fixed incorrectly measured voltage for AC sources with non-sinusoidal waveforms (like cheap invertors)

- fixed erroneous detection of 0 voltage level that may have lead to ATS switchovers when they were not necessary and showing voltage parameters out of range on input when it was not really the case

- fixed bug that may have lead beeper staying on in some conditions

- fixed possible incorrect negative energy detection


- added count-up on reset of HLC with physical buttons to provide better feedback

- improved timings to ensure avoiding interphase short circuit on start-up in some cases for AC ATS models

- started using santiwatts internally to improve precision

- improved catching of overcurrent conditions with overcurrent values between max normal and short circuit current

- eliminated dependency on battery charge during turn off for correct startups

- reduced possibility of false short circuit detection

- improved handling of incorrect internal sensor readings due to possible high interference

- outlets turned off due to short circuit now do not turn on after restart to increase safety

- improved response time for physical buttons

- administratively turned off inlet now displayed as gray on display instead of red to reduce confusion

- improved HLC watchdog

- improved ATS switching speed when target failover inlet's parameters are out of range to improve scenarios of usage with back-ups/line-interactive ups as backup power

- if you turn off or turn on outlet during delayed start-up procedure it is excluded from delayed start-up procedure



We thank you very much for choosing RPCMs - the Smartest PDUs in the World and really hope you will enjoy your RPCMs that will become even better with the new update!
