What are the differences between the COSinus firmwares FW 1.28.11 and FW 1.28.51?

FAQ #102010

In April 2022:
the COSinus FW 1.28.51 was introduced into production for the systems:

- PCD1.M0xx0/M2xx0, PCD2.M4x60, PCD3.Mxx60 and PCD3.M6880.

In February 2019:
the COSinus FW 1.28.37 was released as maintenance version for the systems:

- PCD1.M0xx0/M2xx0, PCD2.M4x60, PCD3.Mxx60, PCD3.M6880 and PCD3.T665/T666/T668.

In June 2017:
the COSinus FW 1.28.16 was introduced into production for the systems:

- PCD1.M0xx0/M2xx0, PCD2.M4x60, PCD3.Mxx60, PCD3.M6880 and PCD3.T665/T666/T668.

the BACnet and LonIP FW 1.28.16 was put into production, which do support the BACnet Revision 14.
To support the BACnet Revision 9 it's necessary to use the PCD and the BACnet FW 1.26.xx.

The firmware 1.28.xx or later can be used only on the following PCD's with 8 MB onboard firmware memory:
PCD1.M0xx0/M2xx0, PCD2.M4x60, PCD3.Mxx60, PCD3.M6880 and PCD3.T665/T666/T668

The table below does show the hardware dependencies in relation with the COSinus firmware versions

Do use at least the PG5 firmware downloader version 2.1.311 or newer (included in PG5 patch 2.1.311 or newer) to prevent the loading of the FW 1.24.xx, 1.26.xx or newer to a not compatible PCD
