Setting motor limits

I was reading the doc for the Somfy SDN controller on the Wiki. I do need to set the limits for the motors. The Wiki references the URL http://shadecontrol/limits.htm. The web server on the XN200 just returns error 404: file not found. Is there a different URL I should use?

The firmware on my XN200 is at 1.0.6 while the Wiki references firmware version 1.0.3 as the latest version.

Version 1.0.6 was a release that had the limits and programming removed for security. A new device wouldn't ship with this configuration.

We will be releasing a new firmware update this week with some important fixes. In the meantime, you can roll back to 1.0.3 using the force update option if you need to get started right away.

Thanks

So the new firmware will have the limit programming put back in sometime this week? I just ordered an RS-485 adaptor so I can program my motors and would like to cancel the order if I am not going to need it.

Yes that is correct. As mentioned, 1.0.6 was a special version that only had the programming feature removed to enable device access by a wide variety of users without worrying they would corrupt the programming. This was per customer request. All other versions have the programming features.

In order for me to be able to make a reasonable decision, what is the substantive difference between 1.0.3 and 1.0.6 in function, leaving the limit programming part out of it. Will I be giving up anything significant? And what will be the new version (1.0.7?) and will it give me significantly more functionality or reliability than 1.0.3?

The firmware will contain important bug fixes. It should be released tomorrow. We will make an announcement in this forum.

The firmware updates are now available. Please check the force update box to ensure the full update is completed from 1.0.6.

Thanks
