CR6 OS 6.01
Updated: 10-02-2017

  1. (CRITICAL) Upgrading the Operating System will reset all the CR6’s settings back to the factory defaults. Sending this OS remotely is not recommended. To restore settings after the update, it is recommended that a backup be made of the current logger settings or take programmatic measures to ensure your settings can be restored. This can be done using the DevConfig backup utility or CRBasic instruction SetSetting. Watch the Video Tutorial: Sending an OS to a Local Datalogger. to learn how to use the DevConfig backup utility.
  2. (WARNING)  After upgrading the CR6-WiFi and CR6-RF451 to this version of the operating system, it is recommended that the user also update the operating system in the radio daughter boards. This version of the CR6 operating system has been tested with version 2.0 of the Wifi daughter board and version 3.0 of the RF-451 daughter board. These operating systems have a *.iobj extension and are placed in the same directory as the CR6 operating system. Use the same procedure to load the Wifi or RF OS using the Device Configuration Utility, select Daughter Card Operating System Files (*iobj) from Files of type drop down.
  3. Added checking in the operating system to make sure that the RTC-RX processor interface is operational and that time is advancing in the RTC. If these conditions are not met the Real Time Clock is reset.
  4. Reworked the Real Time Clock handling of power up and enabled the internal watchdog mechanism of the Real Time Clock processor.
  5. Modified the operating system so when the ssept frequency sweep is complete for the vibrating wire instruction, it makes sure that the state machine RAM contains the settings to deselect the excitation. Previously, the operating system was just setting the hardware directly and when the state machine ran, it set it to the wrong state.
