LTC Manager
Version: 1.3.0.0002 Release 29 March 2019

UTC Firmware Update Required!

The MoTeC Discovery update included with this release will automatically update the firmware of any UTC directly connected to this PC to version 2.2x. This upgrade is required for the UTC to function with this release of LTC Manager.

The firmware is backward compatible with older versions, so existing MoTeC software that uses a UTC should be unaffected.

LTC4.9 Hex 1.04J
LTC-NTK Hex 1.10C
NEW IN THIS RELEASE:
LTC
  • Improvements to allow the LTC to keep running in applications where there is sustained high temperature exhaust.
General
  • Complete rewrite of LTC Manager
  • LTCs displayed limited to those reachable via the selected MoTeC Gateway and - if applicable - the selected CAN Bus
Known Issues
  • In this build, LTCs are not removed from display until they are removed from MoTeC Discovery. Depending on the type of Gateway selected, this can take some time. Therefore, devices may continue to be displayed even after they have been disconnected / become unresponsive.
  • It may take a while for the UTC to show up as an available gateway on the initial launch of LTC Manager due to the UTC firmware upgrade process. You can monitor progress by showing MoTeC Discovery from the Task Tray and clicking on the Messsages tab:
