Help!
My FMA Software no longer updates or launches

Hi:

On December 1, 2011, the FMA Direct site was consolidated with our partner website www.revolectrix.com

If you had previously installed PC software for your FMA Direct or Revolectrix product, you will need to re-install the software from the Revolectrix website.

Steps:

1) Go to the Revolectrix home page.

2) On the main navigation bar, click the product category for the type of product you own; e.g. "Chargers".

3) Click on the image of the product you own.

4) Click on the product's "Resources" tab. Here you will find a link to the PC Software Install page for your product.

5) Follow the instructions on the Software Install page to re-install the software.

Can't say as I am, but I guess you mentioned this to him?

I've requested with RCG that this thread be made into a sticky.

Re-Install

Why is it necessary to reinstall software?

Because the update feature USED to point itself to an FMA Direct update address, and now they point to a Revolectrix IP address.

Actually it should have been possible for them to institute a re-direct and we'd not even known about it, but maybe there's an issue with doing that?

OK, I get it.
So it looks like there are no software of firmware updates available for the 4S?

You take care, and Happy Holidays!

I'll have to take a look at mine when I get home.
I do know that it has the port for the interface cable though.

What is the latest version?

My CCS reports 'Version 1.11 (10-10-12) - Allowed higher safety charge voltage diff. for A123."

Given its date, im wondering if my setup is not picking updates automatically.

I tried to re-install, but ended in the same version. Maybe its ok...

That's the latest version of the CCS. Also check the firmware version on your charger. It should be 3.31.

charging 40 ah life battery

Can't find a A123 balanced preset that will charge my 40 ah LIFE prismatic storage battery at a rate higher that 10 amps. The optimum charge rate is 15 amps but the battery is capable of a 40 amp charge. How do I increase the A123 preset to 15 amps? The battery is wired for an FMA balance connector. Or can I use a lipo preset and change the termination voltage.

Preset #10 A123 High Power. That preset supports up to 40 amps. On the fuel tab change the pack capacity to match the size of your pack. Its not required, but will help the fuel gauge accuracy.

I am trying to set up my cellpro multi 4 on my laptop using windows 8.1.

The ccs seems to work but I can't get it to recognise the charger.

I have updated the USB driver but it only lists up to xp or 32bit vista.

Can this be done or have I got to the end of the chargers life (it's only been used a handful of times since I've had it).

I want to set the presets and find it a pain doing it with the mode button on the unit.

If you are using the FUIM2, you will need to upgrade to the FUIM3.
