Compact Recorder CPU

  • CAN unit (CTRS-CAG010A) is made applicable.
  • Fixed the following bug.
    When the DCS-100A was monitoring data in synchronous operation, slave units occasionally did not output the monitored data.
    However, when this bug occurred during measurements, note that it did not affect the recorded data.

Ver.01.10

Compact Recorder CPU Ver. 01.12

Fixed the following bug.

  • When you recorded data repeatedly by the “Measure mode: Manual (Set Record Data)”, incorrect recording date appeared on the recorded data files after the second time.
  • When you first executed the “PAUSE function” and then executed the “Marker input function”, incorrect marker data appeared on the recorded data.

Ver.01.09

  • Thermocouple Unit (CTRS-CTA010A) is officially made controllable.
  • Fixed the following bug.
    When you executed the “Offline Setting” by using the remote control unit, and if you tried to change the STOP button, BAL button, OPTION 1 button, or OPTION 2 button settings, the CTRS-100A hung.

Update Software

  • Fixed so that you cannot update it when you connect an unknown unit to the CTRS-100A.

Ver.01.08

  • Fixed the following bugs.
    After you turned OFF and ON the power by any of the following methods, the measured value varied.
    1. Executed the balance adjustment, then turned OFF the power.
      [Settings]
      Mode: Strain (2 V)
      Measurement range: 50000 μm/m
      or
      30000 μm/m or more
      *Note that the “Range (Select)” is Optional.
    2. Turned OFF the power without executed the balance adjustment.
      [Settings]
      Mode: Remain unchanged
      Measurement range: Changed
  • When you used the pause function during acquisition and checked the recorded file by using the DAS-200A, the “Start time” and “End time” on the [REC/PAUSE Information] page on the [File Information] window were not correct.

Ver.01.07

  • Wireless LAN unit (CTRS-WLAN010A and 011A) are made controllable.
  • Changed the lighting pattern of the CTRS-100A status LED.

    【Before change】

    Status Power source Lighting pattern
    The SD card has little free space. External power supply or battery unit Flashing red.
    The “Balance error” or “Over range” occurred on any target channels. External power supply Lit up in blue.
    Battery unit Lit up in purple.

    【After change】

    Status Power source Lighting pattern
    The SD card has little free space. External power supply Flashing blue.
    Battery unit Flashing purple.
    The “Balance error” or “Over range” occurred on any target channels. External power supply Flashing blue. (fast)
    Battery unit Flashing purple. (fast)

*CTRS-WLAN010A: For Japan, CTRS-WLAN011A: For USA

Ver.01.05

Compact Recorder CPU Ver.01.07

Fixed the following bugs.

  • The CTRS-100A occasionally created the data file (KS3) which had no recorded data under the following conditions.
    ・When you stopped recording data from the control software while recording data.
    ・When you pressed the STOP button on the remote control unit while recording data.
  • The CTRS-100 occasionally stopped recording data when the “Measure Mode” was “Manual (Set Record Data)”.
  • When you set the repeat times and started recording data, the “SD card space insufficient error” occurred occasionally even though the SD card space was sufficient.
  • When recording data in synchronous operation, the SD card space of the master unit occasionally became insufficient if the SD card space of the slave unit was insufficient.
  • When executing the balance adjustment or executing the input resistance check in synchronous operation, only the slave units executed the target processions if the SD card space of the slave units was insufficient or SD card was not mounted in the slave units.
  • The CTRS-100A stopped monitoring data when the following conditions were both satisfied.
    ・The CTRS-100A was connecting to the PC through the USB cable.
    ・You had tried to start monitoring data by using the remote control unit immediately after the USB cable disconnection.
    (Note that the CTRS-100A records data properly when you disconnect the USB cable and immediately start recording data by pressing the REC button on the remote control unit.)

Compact Recorder FPGA Ver.01.04

  • Fixed the minor bug while recording data, during the synchronous operation.

Remote control unit Ver.01.02

Fixed the following bug.

  • The serial No. didn’t appear correctly.

Battery unit Ver.01.03

  • Fixed to prevent the system hang when failure occurred.
