Any details on the new command that was added?

Does anyone know the difference between HW 1.0, 1,2 and 2.0?

Maybe REC can help with this one.




From Tine at REC BMS Head office:

1.0 was only beta, not upgradable by(to) 1.2 and 2.0.
1.2 and 2.0 can be upgraded. (2.0)HW has a bit different layout and external LEDs.
() are my notes
