    Dear Friends,

    In tool kit, the light level sensor shows No Serial, and when i tried to edit the unit, am not able to access the status information.
    when i pinged the unit it showed 0.0V in the unit, and its 30.2 when i checked with multimeter.
    we need help to know, what happened with the unit....?

    regards,

    rakesh.

    The unit is perfectly OK. The current C-Bus Light Level sensor does not have the capability to report it's Serial Number or Network Voltage to Toolkit. This is true for all C-Bus products with a firmware version of 1.00.

    The text on the Status tab should say "Unit does not have status parameters", which means exactly what it says.

    first of all thanks for the reply...

    is there any firmware up gradation available....

    the unit spec shows it can withstand upto 50 degree Celsius, our atmospheric temperature is in the range of 45 - 55 (Qatar) ...will this really affect the performance of the unit?

    regards,

    Rakesh...

    An update is not available. The unit is very likely to work fine at +55 degrees. I would have problems with using it at that temperature, even though it is outside the specification.
