Centurion Version History 1.37

Build #0004 12/20/10

  • Complete update to support 60 Bins instead of 30 across the system (except Report generator).
  • Now supports 120 Definitions for the Axle Class system.
  • Complete update to support 64 Lanes instead of 32.
  • Update to support Ball Hitch Detect functions on each vehicle, and enabled for each lane on a per-import basis. Also contains the foundation for the Special Vehicle Markers system to support future classifying enhancements on new generation counters.

Also includes these changes:

  • Added update of Release Date/Time when doing a counter firmware update to the Scanning box.
  • Increased the size of the answer from 10,000 to 30,000 to allow for very large response file directories.
  • Fixed problem not saving direct entry delay multipliers on setup screen.
  • Updated bin table editor and report generator for V2 table support.
  • Changed database as follows:
    • Increased size of "____ Class File Name" from 12 to 30 characters in both the Master tables and auto convert the base tables.
    • Changed "TMG: Directions" and "TMG: Lanes" from 32 to 64 characters to accomodate new database capability.
    • Increased max number of lanes in Stations to 64.
    • LANESET: Changed Lane Number and Physical Lane Number to go up to 64.
    • IMPORTS: Added Ball Hitch Detect (32 bit lane bit map).
    • PER-VEHICLE: Increased Lane Number to 64, allowed class numbers to 60, added Special Vehicle Markers.
    • CLASSIFICATION: Added "Bin Total 31-60" at end.
    • VOLUME: Added "Lane 33-64" at end.
    • Reset SVM to be before Other record.
  • Fixed some bugs in conversion of database and added text noting to wait while database undergoes conversion.
  • Added Volume Export for Titan II Study (to support up to 64 Lanes).
  • Added combo-box for selecting type of per-vehicle export (Matching, Normal, Enhanced, With Bins, Enhanced+Bins, Loop Class).
  • Added preferences option for splitting all ASCII and Binary exports into daily files.
  • Greatly improved the Binary exporter to fully include all Loop Class values (including signatures) and to support full database exporting. System is now completely import, edit, export, reimport without any loss in the flow.
  • Changed the import rules around the Default Bin Table so that DEFAULTX is used consistently whenever possible on imports, even if user sets the default to blank (now true even on Volume imports).
  • Completed full support for 64 Lanes/60 Bins on Direct to Excel Export and also added BHD to Excel Export.
  • Fixed issue saving file to Text using Unicode instead of ANSI text (improved look of Text Save function). Saved text now also looks improved with edited out MPH/FT/CM labels and the file is automatically opened in the editor at end.
  • Fixed problems displaying Lane Grouping updates on user interface and also corrected display so that “GPS Baud” rate does not overlap the setting box on the Titan II link.
  • Fixed messages that required a setting in the Length Class table when going into the Site Setup dialog.
  • The COM port monitor now separately allows monitoring the detailed log file and the trace file. When enabling the log file, the system does show an hour glass (or spinning loop under Vista/Win 7) during writing out of this file to show it performing calculations when closing. Default for log file is off.
  • Fixed issue with breaking up binned multi-day Binned and ASCII day files showing multiple error messag dialogs and blank files when a missing day was found in the set.

Can now specify a minimum left scale value for the Loop Class Detail graph to help show scales better for vehicles; and clicking on the graph brings up the chart editor where multiple functions are available (print, save, export, etc.).

Build #0007 04/11/11

  • Corrected multiple issues with uploading Loop Class tables.
  • Added extra 0x01 characters to Master/Slave switch and altered timing to improve switching performance.

Build #0008 05/20/11

  • Added allowing changing the Master/Slave by clicking on the Serial ID value.
  • Fixed not clearing LaneInfos when making Ohio Exports short count format.
  • Added function for importer to auto move characters at end of Info Line 1 to Lane Info 1 and Lane Info 2 when import is coming from an Omega (‘h’ custom version).
  • Added "Move Decimal on GPS Coords" function (on by default). This also fixes the incorrect formatting of the GPS value returned by the Omega and Titan II counters.

Build #0009 06/15/11

  • Added support for importing data that has Lane Grouping enabled inside of the counter.

  • Fixed Issues with not making the Settings and Main Link screen clocks match on the Titan and Omega link screens.
  • Added an “Ohio Site ID” setting to the Preferences which makes any Site ID on Omega/Titan II data files, counter screens, or when keying in for a new Start Collecting be zero filled to be at least 6 characters long.
