|Question:||What's new in the product?|
|Answer:||In version 4, we added a brighter LCD, a scripting-controlled beeper/alarm, and more memory. We have a number of firmware improvements, and the latest file is here. We also reduced power consumption. In version 5, we added a keypad for local outlet control, doubled EEPROM memory, and added a smart circuit to protect against power brown-outs. In version 6, we reduced power consumption even more - we're down around 3.5 watts with all outlets on, we added a real-time-clock module with internal battery backup, introduced NTP sync and scheduling, improved the keypad and expanded the scripting language. There are plenty of firmware upgrades too. In version 7, we switched to removable power cords. A 6-foot 14AWG L15P to C19 is standard, and many others are available. We've increased battery lifetime (15 yrs est), improved performance at high temperature, enlarged keypad buttons, updated the manual, added more scripting commands and reduced the box size for economical air shipment. It's still just as easy to use.|
