Description
Firmware Update

Version 2.2.2 firmware improves coordination between multiple WS500 regulators in twin installs while communicating via CANbus. In addition, Version 2.2.2 firmware offers support for LUX-branded BMS and the ability to invert the meaning of FEATURE-IN port when used with CPE #8 (ref: $SCO command). The ability to redefine the battery temperature sensor for use with a second alternator is also included in this version. (This can be used in applications where battery temperature is available via CAN, and where dual alternators are being driven by a single WS500 on a single engine. (ref: $SCA command) Note: Compatibility with LUX-branded BMS units has not been field tested. Contact support@wakespeed.com for the latest update. Version 2.2.2. (ZIP) Revised June 9, 2020
