Firmware used in production
The actual COSinus FW 1.20.xx or higher is available from the COSinus firmware page.
Good to know
The in-wall mounting kit PCD7.D457-IWS is obsolete and is replaced by PCD7.D457-IWS2.
The cut out dimension for the PCD7.D457-IWS and the PCD7.D457-IWS2 are different!
The on-wall mounting kit PCD7.D457-OWS is obsolote and is replaced by PCD7.D457-OWS1/2.
The differences between firmware 1.01.04 up to 1.20.36 are described in FAQ 101301.
A downgrade from version 1.20.xx to version <= 1.18.xx could generate a blocking of the MB panel.
It is therefore recommended to avoid any downgrade and keep the 1.20.xx or higher! FAQ 101826.
The button "Set Date/Time" in the Online trend macro is not supported/working on MB Panels.
The button "Save to file" in the Alarming2 macro is not supported/working on MB Panels
When updating the FW of MB Panels it may happens that you have to update the booter as well. For example when you're downloading the firmware and you get a NAK response. More information can be found in FAQ 101226.
There is a "Getting started with MB Panels" example available in the Getting Started section.

Micro Browser Monochrome Display contrast changes (FAQ #100718)
When updating the Micro Browser Firmware to version 10701, the contrast settings in the monochrome panels PCD7.D457BTCF and PCD7.D457BMCF have to be changed. You'll have to increase the contrast for several steps.
With the new Firmware version we had to change the contrast adjustment on the Hardware and Firmware side to avoid any whistle (noise) and waves appearances.
Please note: The tone and brightness of each MB-Panel display is an individual characteristic and can be slightly different from one display to the other. At some contrast settings or with some images, flickering or differences in the brightness levels may appear.
On Microbrowser panels with harware version <$C it is not possible to store teq- and gif-files on the panel. (FAQ #100576)
If you are using a Microbrowser panel with HW-Version <$C you have to download all teq- and gif-files to the PCD.
PCD7.D7__ Ethernet Driver: error in commande function! (FAQ #100337)
When using the commande function which allows for example the writing of the hardware clock from PLC to Terminal PCD7.D7-- over Ethernet connection the 2 first words are swapped.
Normally the 1st word 0 contains the command the VT has to carry out and the 3 others word contain the parameters. This works well in S Bus driver but with Ether S Bus the two first words are swapped.
This means it is so with this error:
Word 0 is Parameter 1
Word 1 is commande
Word 2 is Parameter 2
Word 3 is Parameter 3
In order to solve that problem the attached file vtwindev.dbr has to be copied in the main directory PCD8.D81W software, this will replace the existing file.
Fkeys don't work on PCD7.D16_ with HMI editor! (FAQ #100175)
The FKeys flags available in HMI Editor (in Tag Internals) don't work on the PCD7.D16_.
Because those flags have a double functionality, they don't work for those small displays. It is necessary to use a bigger display as PCD7.D231 or PCD7.D232 in order to have this FKeys functionality!
