JETI VersaSpec Changelog

Version history of JETI VersaSpec (Last updated on May 25, 2020)

v5.9.72

[NEW]
- Parameter Row Range for SDCM4 (for e.g. S10420) implemented


v5.9.71

[NEW]
- Password for password protected parameters is asked only once.


v5.9.70

[NEW]
- Some frames and help notices in the PU->Correction


v5.9.69

[NEW]
- DLLs 4.5.17

[BUGFIX]
- PU - "Read" caused firmware reset also for SCDM4-devices what led to connection interrupt. -> fixed


v5.9.68

[BUGFIX]
- Temperature display in the main panel has been handled wrongly. -> fixed


v5.9.67

[BUGFIX]
- Temperature measurement could give illegal values. -> fixed


v5.9.66

[CHANGED]
- Temperature measurement - result is now defined as static, so it is changed only if the measuring function was successful.


v5.9.65

[NEW]
- Bragg peak detection window(under menu->special).

[CHANGED]
- Bragg - start and end indexes of peaks are noticed after the 1st measurement and are not changed till the end of the measuring series. Otherwise shift values "jump" because of changing borders for centroid calculation.


v5.9.64

[NEW]
- Bragg peak detection (under menu->special)


v5.9.63

[NEW]
- "Backup" and "Restore" buttons in PU: in password asking dialogs is designated, what it is for; after an ACK is received, a clear success message is fired.


v5.9.62

[BUGFIX]
- Switch pixels/wavelengths has not work -> fixed


v5.9.61

[CHANGED]
- TEC window is no longer modal.


v5.9.60

[NEW]
- *PARA:TEC:ISET


v5.9.59

[NEW]
- Quit-button and connect/disconnect-switch are marked blue also if any parameter has been changed


v5.9.58

[NEW]
- Menu -> Special -> TEC


v5.9.57

[NEW][CHANGED][BUGFIX]
- DLLs 4.5.14. Get- and SetOffsetCorrRange commands appeared, which let to get the range of the offset correction for device type >= 3. JETI_GetCorrectionRange got the same meaning for all device types: now it is the range for UV-correction (previously it had the meaning of offset correction range for device type >=3).
So now, UV-correction is supported (and done by VersaSpec using firmware parameters) for all device types.

[CHANGED]
- Designation of device type 4 is changed from "PE60" to "PE60/SDCM4".


v5.9.56

[NEW]
- UV-Tool - slide bar for the spectrum chart. Behaviour is completely revised.


v5.9.55

[NEW]

[NEW]
- UV-tool - "Save screenshot" copied from FitTool. Now the feature with generating of file names from two grating numbers is available.


v5.9.53

[NEW]
- UV-tool - measurements with manual calculation of averaged spectra (because of integer output of counts by DLL-functions - even with averages - and problems that they cause).

[NEW]
- UV-tool - offset subtracting wich 1 click; level lines 0.000002 and 0.000004; some behaviour changes.


v5.9.51

[NEW]
- UV-Tool - Screenshot

[NEW]
- UV-Tool


v5.9.48

[BUGFIX]

v5.9.43

[BUGFIX]
- Loading a text parameter file for a specbos device caused reset of all parameters to their saved values -> fixed (the reason was that reading of parameter block causes reset of all parameters)
- Error message after writing to device (internally, timeout after calling of *para:save) -> fixed

v5.9.22

[NEW]
- Menu->Special->Shutter Test. For every ScanDelay=[0...ScanDelayMax] makes [repetitions] of measurements. On the 1st repetition, searches for the maximum withing the range [StartPx...EndPx]. Then displays the "maximum maximum" and "minimum maximum".

V5.1.17

[BUGFIX]

V5.1.7

[NEW]
- COM-port as command-line argument to make BlueTooth SDCM3 devices work.

[BUGFIX]
- Scan-period works somehow. (The formula for minimal scan period is still not correct enough and gives values, that are much higher as actually required, but it works).

[CHANGED]
- Parameter Utility as PopUp (modal); cancel continous if called it.

- The user must input the password for saving of parameters only once.
- "About" is also closed with a ESC.

[BUGFIX]
- PARA:MAXTINT for SDCx3 was fixed (MAXTINT parameter was not read from a SDCx3 device because the last "T" is obligatory, though by older devices it was not).


V5.1.2

[CHANGED]
