VBOX III Speed Sensor History

Stock code:
Latest update:

2.15 bld 2 - March 2009
Implementation of new feature to 2nd digital output, to allow configurable level switched output.

2.09 bld 4 - May 2007
Fixes some issues with setting CAN IDs and GPS optimisation

2.04 bld 6 - May 2006
Note: Requires VBOXTools v1.2.1 Bld 95 to work correctly
This firmware allows CAN settings to be configured on the VBOXIIISS

2.03 bld 8 - Apr 2006
This firmware is required to make the VBOX work with the latest version of GPS engine firmware. It adds no new functionality

2.03 bld 4 - Dec 2005
Firmware upgrade in line with VBOXIII firmware

2.02 bld 1 - Oct 2005
This firmware is required for compatibility with the new VBOXTools software version 1.0.1build25
This firmware also enables the serial data stream so it can be used with an LED display

2.01 bld 5 - Apr 2005
This new firmware contains a real time Kalman Filter. The settings for this on-line Kalman Filter can be set and adjusted using VBOX software 8.2.6 bld 10 or later or a File Manager
This new firmware also allows compatablity with the File Manager

1.10 bld 105 - Dec 2004
We have added the ability to swap between UTC and GPS time with the following commands, for UTC time enter: $VB3,S,ReceiverTime,$FF and for GPS time enter: $VB3,S,ReceiverTime,$00. These commands should be entered into the GPS message window of the GPS tab in VBOX setup software. The difference between GPS time and UTC time is 13 seconds used as a compensation for the slowing of the earths rotation
There is an improvement to the communication routines that was causing some people to have difficultly coming in and out of VBOX setup
This firmware also uses new Eeprom routines for more efficient reading and writing to internal Eeprom

1.09 bld 3 - Dec 2004
Added the ability, via VBOX software, to change the dynamic mode of the VBOX. This is applied to the type of test conducted, ie high dynamic, high accuracy distance measurement or lower dynamic general testing requiring less noisy acceleration data
The ability to switch between Extended and Standard CAN identifiers on the secondary CAN port, via VBOX software
Bug fix that cures a problem with CAN channels not being recognised for display on a MFD
Improved distance accuracy on the CAN output for the Multifunction display

1.06 bld 80 - Sept 2004
The version has been created as part of the release of the VBIII speed sensor, there are no other changes
