Integrated a new conversion utility to support controller database conversions from v61/v65 to v76 and higher, including newly introduced v85.2. the conversion tool supports:
- One to one conversion of all current database configurations (prm to prm, std to std etc.) and archived databases
- Bulk conversion – processes multiple controllers provided their source and destination configuration is the same
- Conversion from any database configuration file to a .dat file (Local Download option)
- Local Download supports multiple controller selection when exporting .dat formats
The Conversion process updates the current definition’s database format to the new definition’s database format, for all controller database configurations. The same applies to archive databases.
The Upgrade process (post conversion) differentiates two cases:
- controllers maintaining same controller ID
- controllers with new controller ID
Pre-conversion database formats can be accessed via Databases -> Conversion History options View, Compare and Pre-Conversion Archives.
Current or Post-conversion database formats can be accessed.
The Dynamic Timing Sheet, Database options View, Compare, Edit etc. functions are supported in both pre and post conversion formats.
The Database Configuration selection supports 2 most recent (favorite) archives. Archive database selection will persist per user.
