Firmware Version 001.003.001

New Features

  • Addition of EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages for monitoring

  • Enhancement of response time to Modbus TCP/IP request and operation for a wireless IEEE 802.15.4 device

  • Addition of alarms for PowerTag and PowerLogic Tag wireless energy sensors:

    • 45% rated current alarm

    • 50% rated current alarm

    • 80% rated current alarm

    • Zero current alarm

  • Wi-Fi infrastructure mode using internal antenna or external antenna (reference PASA-ANT1).

  • Manual addition of Modbus Serial devices connected to a child/downstream gateway. For example, child/downstream gateways can be Panel Server, Link150 or third-party gateways.

    Example: Two Modbus Serial devices are connected to a child/downstream Panel Server in a separate topology. The child/downstream Panel Server (PAS#2) is connected to one Ethernet port of the parent/upstream Panel Server (PAS#1). For more information, refer to DOCA0172EN EcoStruxure Panel Server - User Guide.

  • Integration with Schneider Electric cloud applications EcoStruxure Asset Advisor, EcoStruxure Resource Advisor, and EcoStruxure Energy Hub with limited features. For more information, contact your local Schneider Electric representative.

  • Ethernet diagnostics to help with validating the Panel Server integration into upstream communication.

  • New languages supported in EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages: Italian, Spanish, German, Russian.

  • For wireless devices, configuration of communication period per family (energy, ambient, control) on EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages and EcoStruxure Power Commission software.

  • FDM128 display supported but need to update to last version of FDM128 firmware (version 8.0.30 or higher). For detailed information about supported wireless devices, refer to DOCA0151EN Enerlin'X FDM128 – Ethernet Display for Eight Devices – Firmware Release Notes.

    Acti9 Active, wireless indication auxiliaries for ComPacT and PowerPacT, and PowerLogic Tag are not displayed.

  • Remote access (a local action is required to enable remote access to the EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages).

Known Issues

EcoStruxure Power Commission software version 2.24 does not use virtual server ID to access Modbus Serial devices.

When a virtual server ID different from the physical Modbus address / server ID is allocated to a Modbus Serial device, EcoStruxure Power Commission software version 2.24 uses the physical Modbus address / server ID to access the Modbus Serial device.

To avoid any issue during commissioning of Modbus Serial devices in EcoStruxure Power Commission software, ensure that the physical Modbus address / server ID and the virtual server ID of each downstream Modbus device under the Panel Server gateway are unique and have not been previously assigned as a physical Modbus address or virtual server ID to any wireless, Modbus Serial, or Modbus TCP/IP device.

To solve this issue, proceed as follows:

  • Option 1 - Change the physical Modbus address of the device on the Modbus Serial network as follows:

    1. Set the physical Modbus address of the device to a value not assigned as virtual server ID to any other wireless, Modbus Serial, or Modbus TCP/IP device.

    2. Login to the Panel Server webpages and update accordingly the physical Modbus address / server ID of the device in the Panel Server.

  • Option 2 - Change the virtual server ID of the device in the Panel Server as follows:

    Login to the Panel Server webpages and change the virtual server ID of the device to a value different from the physical Modbus address / server ID of any other device on the Modbus Serial network.
