no fix for the live update of e131 and incorrect voltage reading on v1 it seemsV2.51 is now out, everyone who has v2.50 should upgrade:
We have recently identified a problem in the field with the termination circuit on Falcon Smart Receivers. The termination circuit is intended to be used on the last Smart Receiver in the chain. This means that any Smart Receiver that does not have both of it's RJ-45 ports in use needs termination. Without termination, the functional distance from the controller to the last Smart Receiver in the chain is severely reduced. Effectively the termination jumpers (or dip switches in later revisions of the board) are not functional due to a manufacturing defect. The 120 Ohm resistor specified in the design was populated with a 120K Ohm resistor. eliminating the termination. The good news is that there an easy fix for the issue. We are currently producing an additional small circuit board that you would then plug into the spare RJ-45 port on the last receiver in the chain to provide termination functionality instead of using the on-board jumpers/dip switches. The small circuit board will have a RJ-45 jack and 4 120 Ohm resistors solder to PCB. We will be providing these Termination Boards and a small 6 inch Cat5E cable to you free of charge as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. While you only need one of these circuit boards for the number of chains you have, since we don't know how many chains you are running we will ship you one Termination Board per Smart Receiver purchased. This will happen automatically without any action required from you. If you have changed shipping address since your last order, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org If you purchased your Smart Receivers from other sources, including darylc please contact them to organize your Termination Boards. We will release a Smart Receiver v2 in the near future.
FYI all termination boards & cables were posted out today via express post (within Australia) or regular port (New Zealand)I will also be sending out these boards. I don't know when I will be receiving them yet. If you have changed shipping address please PM me to let me know.
There is typically one buy per year, please see https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/falcon-controllers-accessories-for-sale.11720/ for any leftovers from 2019.when is the next bulk buy? i am after few controllers and differential. Thanks
