Color Control GX v1.27 firmware released

Historical data page of the VRM App.

Firmware v1.27 is now available for your Color Control GX (CCGX). If your CCGX is set to update automatically, it will have done so.

The headline image above shows the Historical data page of the VRM App. A few CCGX versions back we accidentally broke its functionality. The good news it that this release restores the correct order. In systems with only one BMV, the historical data of that BMV will be used for the Historical data page. In systems with multiple BMVs, use the Battery monitor setting on the Color Control GX which you will find in the System setup menu.


v1.27 – 14 August 2015

  • Fixed bug that caused the information behind the orange Historical data button in the VRM App to be empty.
  • Fixed bug in Hub-4 reporting: solar yield kWhs, used in the Solar yield and Consumption tab on VRM were not calculated.
  • Fixed bug that occurred on systems that were updated from an old CCGX version:
    • The Available updates menu entry would keep showing ‘1 update available’.
    • Remote VEConfigure did not work in certain cases, giving an in VE Power Setup while trying to update.
  • Update Oceanvolt motordrive services.
  • Send more settings to VRM, to make it easier to help customers with CCGX related questions.
  • Stability improvements: fixed a memory leak that that would cause the CCGX to have a sluggish response and finally be rebooted by the watchdog.
  • ModbusTCP has support for fixed length string and signed and unsigned 32 bits integers. New registers:
    • 2800-2807: GPS data
    • 303: battery time to go, previous register (301) conflicted with discharged energy
    • 789: solarcharger yield
    • 2609: grid meter serial

Updating to v1.27

If your CCGX is connected to the internet and set to update automatically, it will have done so. If you need to do an update with a USB-stick or microSD-card (if your CCGX is not connected to the internet) the recovery image is here:
