Release Brief for V4.39 soft ware for the DMXter4 and 4A
Software Release Notes - DMXter4 and DMXterA Version V4.39
The V4.39 update mainly extends the programable
responder while making relatively few other changes. However, several
are important for professional users.
The first test software change is a greatly expanded
programmable responder. The DMXter4/4A is the only tester to provide
stress and error handling testing for controllers. The changes are great

An option to add extra delay after

9A Configure Time Base Advanced RDM only
Another change adds the ability to adjust the
DMXter master clock over the range of plus or minus 5%. Every time
the unit is powered up the clock returns to 48 MHz with accuracy of 75
ppm or better.
4.12.8 Browse Start Codes
This feature allows for quickly changing the current
receive Start Code and testing whether it is blocked or enabled.
Firmware change for RDM Inserter mode. (DMXter4A only)
When a fatal error occurs the DMXter4a switches
the relay to passthrough. This should allow the Null Start Code data to
continue to flow through.
