NetPing Issued Firmware Updates DKSF 52.9.2 DKSF 201.9.2 DKSF 202.9.2 for Devices NetPing 2/PWR-220 v3/ETH NetPing 2/PWR-220 v1/SMS NetPing 2/PWR-220 v4/SMS

NetPing company reports about issuing firmware updates for devices NetPing 2/PWR-220 v3/ETH NetPing 2/PWR-220 v1/SMS NetPing 2/PWR-220 v4/SMS. New firmware versions for devices allowed to make working with devices more stable and functional.

What has been changed in the latest versions?

Firmware Version DKSF 52.9.2 DKSF 201.9.2 DKSF 202.9.2 from 01.09.2015:

  • Limits are introduced for a maximum length of characters in login and password as well as in memos for IO lines, sensors and relays;
  • A reliability of temperature sensors operation that did not work at certain devices while updating firmware to the version DKSF 52/201/202.8.X is improved;
  • URL-encoded commands (HTTP API) for IO lines have been changed:
    1. Controlling an operation mode of an IO line (a number of a line is indicated before &):
      where: n - is a number of an IO line, 0 - is an input; 1 - is a manually controlled output; 2 - is a logic output
    2. Setting a logic level to the specified value at an output (when working in the mode «1»):
      where: n - is a number of an IO line
    3. A response to an HTTP API command «/io.cgi?io4=n», where n>1 is fixed. Now a command always returns a response «io_result('error')» within these conditions;
  • A command for switching a status of an IO line to the opposite one is implemented. For an IO line, there is a need to write the value «flip(-1)» into SNMP OID «npIoLevelOut»;
  • A notification of all types (Log, Syslog, SNMP TRAP, e-mail and SMS) from a humidity sensor for the event «Sensor failed» is restored. In a previous firmware version, this notification did not work when this event took place;
  • Support of Cyrillic letters in SMS notifications from sensors, IO lines, and relays is added. A length of any SMS notification is limited to 70 characters;
  • An operability of the SMS command «NETPING N? <community>» for requesting a pinger status at the page «SMS» is restored. Now the command returns an actual status;
  • A response to an SMS command «NETPING Pn? <community>» for requesting a relay status, where n - is a relay number is updated. Now the information on a current relay status: + (On), - (Off) is added to the response besides an operation mode of a relay;
  • An operability of the SMS command «NETPING Kn <community>» is restored, where n - is a number of a written command, which allows to send a command from the phone through an IR extension module IRC-TRv2 for a remote management of devices with an infrared (IR) interface. In previous firmware versions, the command has always returned an error «NP WRONG CMD: "NETPING Kn <community>"»;
  • An operability of the SMS command «NETPING Tn? <community>» for requesting readings of a temperature sensor is restored, where n - is a number of a temperature sensor. In previous firmware versions, a command has always returned the error «NP WRONG CMD: "NETPING Tn <community>"»;
  • Duplicating of a periodic report about a status of sensors, IO lines, and relays is eliminated. In a previous firmware version, a periodic report has been sent twice;
  • An HTTP API command for a USSD request: «/ussdstart.cgi?requestcode» is added, where requestcode – is for example a100x, which means *100#. In the code of a USSD request, «*» is replaced by «a», «#» is replaced by «x» (Latin characters). This possibility allows, for example, to request SIM card balance through HTTP API;
  • Sending random SMS notifications to the specified phone number or a group of phone numbers using third party web applications through HTTP API is implemented;
  • A branch «npBatteryTraps» for a battery (for a device NetPing 2/PWR-220 v4/SMS with an embedded GSM modem) is added into the contents of the MIB file;
  • Support of a new WS-2 humidity sensor (for a device NetPing 2/PWR-220 v3/ETH) is implemented;
  • An authorization issue at a web interface while entering a long username is eliminated;
  • A probability of errors caused by adding special characters into text data, such as comments to IO lines, sensors, relays, a location of a device and contact data is decreased. It is prohibited to use «"» and «:» in text fields;
  • Typos are corrected at the page «SMS» of a device web interface;
  • An incorrect displaying of Syslog notifications when using a maximum available length of a device name (62 characters), which is set at the page «Setup» is eliminated.

NetPing company recommends updating the firmware of devices NetPing 2/PWR-220 v3/ETH NetPing 2/PWR-220 v1/SMS NetPing 2/PWR-220 v4/SMS to the latest version. Updates are available at the official website in the section «Documentation and files». Amendments of new firmware will allow to improve the quality and comfort of work with devices.
