TMS-200/TMS-205 Software Updates

Postby Admin » Thu May 28, 2009 10:31 am

New software for TMS has been posted to http://www.koolance.com/support/manuals.html . Additional updates should become available more regularly.

v2.1.2 Additions:
  • 120dpi resolution support.
  • Improved pump speed control stepping.
  • User-definable pump and fan speed levels. These can be accessed via the "Adjust" option beneath any fan or pump's drop-down menu.
  • Reduced minimum fan speed setting to 1%.
  • A new debugging log feature. If there are issues in the software that cause an error or crash, information should be posted to the debug log file in the TMS root directory. Debug logs can be disabled under "Settings".
  • Color code indicators have been added to all devices on the main screen (temperature, fans, pump, flow meters, etc.) to make the display graph more legible.
  • The option to disable the TMS tray icon hover menu was added. To access, right click and select "Disable Mouseover Menu".
  • Additional fixes for stability.

We are still working on other issues some customers are experiencing with their TMS-200 boards. This includes hearing an alarm or receiving a shutdown signal during the boot-up process (continuously or at random), some fans not being controlled properly, or COM connection problems. We believe the main cause for COM connection issues are power supplies where the 5V voltage rises slightly before 12V.

During the time required to test these different hardware scenarios, unfortunately, we realize some customers are still unable to operate their TMS boards properly. For anyone currently experiencing unresolvable or unsatisfactory issues with their TMS-200 boards, we would like to offer the option to return the product for a refund (please submit an RMA request to do so). We sincerely apologize for any issues encountered with this product.

NOTE: Current users should completely uninstall any previous versions of TMS before attempting to install v2.1.26. Reboot after installing the new software. (It should not be necessary to reinstall the Prolific drivers during the update to 2.1.26, unless you are a new user.)


v2.1.26 Updates:
  • Added user temperature offsets (+/-) to the settings menu.
  • Added a hysteresis function to the automatic fan and pump power graphs. This allows a "tolerance" period before power is adjusted based on the user's auto graph setting. The hysteresis graph line is in green, and can be disabled through the bottom checkbox.
  • Icons for TMS silent/alarm modes, and logging enabled/disabled have been added to the main screen for easier identification.
  • When an alarm event occurs, the pumps are now changed to full power until the user manually resets them.
  • An error when interacting with the impending shutdown dialog box was fixed.
  • A typo with flowmeter units in the shutdown settings window was corrected.
  • A TMS startup delay was added to prevent errors with some pumps that required more time to power up.

v2.1.28 FINAL Updates:
  • Error log file now generated for debugging purposes, named "Req.log" and found in the TMS software install folder.
  • Added an option to fix the COM port used for TMS-200 so it doesn't need to rescan each time. The option is located at the top of the settings screen.
  • Added "Share Memory" feature at the bottom of the settings screen. This can be enabled to share TMS output data (pump speed, temperatures, etc.) for compatible 3rd-party programs.
