Folks,

 

New releases of the synApps mca, measComp, and modbus modules are now available.

 

********************************

mca R7-8

  * Added support for a new InputPolarity record for the SIS3820. This allows selecting the polarity of the control inputs.

  * Added OPI autoconvert files for edm, CSS BOY, and caQtDM.

********************************

 

********************************

measComp R2-3

  * Improved behavior for E-1608 when there are brief network outages. If the waveform digitizer was running when the outage occurred it would stop and not restart when the network recovered.

    This has been fixed, and tested with the E-1608 on both Linux and Windows.

  * Added Makefile to produce autoconverted OPI files from medm to edm, CSS/BOY, and caQtDM. Added/updated the autoconverted files for these.

********************************

********************************

modbus R3-0

  * This is a major rewrite of the driver, changing from C to C++ inheriting from asynPortDriver.

     The major reason for the change is to be able to invoke the class methods such as drvModbusAsyn::doModbusIO() from other drivers.

     This allows drivers that communicate with Modbus devices to call methods to perform the Modbus I/O directly, which was not possible with the previous C API.

 * The new driver should be completely backwards compatible with previous versions, so no changes to IOC startup scripts or OPI displays are required.

  * A new example program, testClient.cpp, has been added. This program demonstrates how to instantiate a drvModbusAsyn object and use it to perform Modbus I/O to an external device.

     This example is a pure C++ application running without an IOC. The same code could be used in a driver in an IOC.

* Added OPI autoconvert files for edm, CSS BOY, and caQtDM.
