StreamPro Firmware

Firmware for Teledyne RD Instruments StreamPro ADCP

Version
Status
Changes and Known Issues
31.16
Aug 2017
Required minimum
as of 8/6/2018
- Increased scope of supported Bluetooth hardware. +May be required for newer (> July 2017) instruments
- Fixed an issue where having only 1 of 2 valid bottom pings could
  cause the bottom track intensity and correlation to be doubled.
31.15
  Dec 2015
Required Minimum
(2/27/2017 to 8/6/2018)
- fixed bug with Extended Profile Range in WM13 where depth cells 21-30 were populated with static, meaningless data
31.14
Sept 2015
Testing
(Until 2/27/2017)
- added support for Bluetooth Module change in new StreamPros
-known issue: WM13 only works properly up to 20 good depth cells of data; depth cells 21-30 are populated with static, meaningless data. The work-around for new data collection in WM13 is to manually configure the number of depth cells and size in the WinRiver II measurement wizard so that 20 depth cells will cover the desired profiling range. Note this only affects Water Mode 13 (low noise mode). This issue is in all prior versions that support "long range mode" (through 31.07)
31.13
May 2013
Allowed
(Until 2/27/2017)
-added support for new compass part number used in new StreamPros
-known issue: WM13 only works properly up to 20 good depth cells of data; depth cells 21-30 are populated with static, meaningless data. The work-around for new data collection in WM13 is to manually configure the number of depth cells and size in the WinRiver II measurement wizard so that 20 depth cells will cover the desired profiling range.

Software/Firmware Status Definitions

Required Minimum: Minimum version required. This version has proven stable and may contain enhancements that are significant over previous required versions

Recommended: Shown to have been reliable and contains features that result in a recommended upgrade over the required version. There could be a few specific use cases where this version may have issues that would result in some users not using this version. If so, those cases will be noted.

Allowed*: Deemed reliable during initial testing. Any issues will be noted along with improvements available over prior versions. Use of allowed versions may be desired in cases when the changes benefit a significant number of the user's conditions or equipment. For example: a new version of software is released that adds support for new hardware. If the user has this hardware, they would need to upgrade to the newer software before it becomes recommended or required. Use of these versions by experienced users will also help OSW identify any unknown issues.

Testing*: OSW is currently testing; any known issues or advantages over prior release will be noted. The use of a version that is in testing should usually be limited to advanced users that can trouble shoot potential issues and provide feedback on any irregularities or problems observed.

Do Not Use: A version either prior to the required minimum or that contains issues that significantly affect operations.

*Note: A version may remain in Allowed or Testing indefinitely. Example: A new version is released while the prior version is still in Testing. In this case the prior version may remain in Testing, while future testing efforts are placed on the newer version.
