The new V2 firmware/CCS version includes the following major features/capabilities:
1. Expansion Channel Mode is now available
2. Supports 40A maximum charge rate
3. Supports 40A maximum discharge rate (when using regenerative discharge mode)
4. Supports 1344 Watts
Installing the new version will render any V1 presets obsolete. The process of upgrading your V1 PL8 to V2 will automatically update to the latest V2 firmware version and initiate a Factory Restore. The V2 upgrade is NOT mandatory. Additionally, any V2 equipped PL8 can be downgraded to V1.

Cellpro PL8 PC Charge Control Software (CCS) supports Windows 7 or higher, most popular browsers, and installs from the Revolectrix website. In order to physically interconnect the PL8 to a PC, a separate PC USB Interface is required; REVO PN: FUIM3.

IMPORTANT: If you have a dial up connection and you use a dial up accelerator, disable it before proceeding. After installation, you may also need to disable it any time you launch the Cellpro PL8 Charge Control Software in order to receive updates without problems.

To install the Revolectrix PL8 CCS, click:

Install Cellpro PL8 Charge Control Software

The above link to the installer program will first check your computer for Microsoft .NET. If it is not already present, it will automatically install the latest version from the Microsoft website. After .NET is installed, the CCS will install and launch.

After the Charge Control Software launches:

1) Connect the USB plug of the FUIM3 PC USB interface into any available USB port. Windows 7 or higher will automatically detect the device and install the correct driver.

2) In the CCS Application, make sure "Comm:" (bottom left corner) is set to "Auto".

3) Next, apply power to the charger, then plug the 3 wire servo pigtail of the FUIM3 into the mating header labeled "TO PC", being careful to observe proper polarity (as labeled on the top of the charger).

4) In the CCS Application, the text near the top of the application window should change from "No Data" to "Waiting to Start". The software is now installed, connected to the charger, and ready to use.
