Version 1.01

This was the first released plug-in version for the WattNode Logger.

  • Release Date: 2008-11-06

Version 1.02

Changes

  • Updated plug-in to correctly update resource catalog. Installer no longer tries to do this.
  • Updated some status indications to appear in pop-up window during plug-in initialization (before main form visible).
  • Validates resource file versions.
  • Better error handling if the CSV log file isn’t writable (typically because it is open in Excel).
  • Updated handling of enabling and disabling network variable monitoring.
  • Only display one digit to the right of the decimal point for VAC measurements.
  • No longer converts date of 0000-00-00 (null date) to 2000-00-00.
  • Comma’s between thousands, millions, etc. for power, demand vars, like energy.
  • “Read Log” button grayed out during download.
  • When energy reaches 100,000 kWh, stop displaying digit to the right of the decimal if we’re using a floating point energy SNVT, because LNS only provides six digits of precision.
  • Displays “Offline” or “Read Error” if the WattNode meter is offline or we cannot communicate with it.
  • Periodically checks the WattNode state and error and updates the display.
