CTB16PC Firmware

Recommended Posts

I was checking my firmware on all my controllers and noticed my CTB16PC is 4.30 which shows the latest on the lor download web, but I show 4.32 is avail in the hardware utility for S2 2.9.4? What is the difference and do I really need to update?

Maybe it will help my LED floods fade better?

I would wait for the G3 firmware update. That is the update which will have the LED dimming curve in it. 4.32 does not have special LED dimming properties.

Also, check that your 120v LED is rated to dim. The majority of floods or screw in bulbs are on/off devices only, and can be damaged by dimming.

CTB16-PC V1 boards are good for up to 4.32 V2 is 4.40 only. I think 4.32 added a feature relating to triggers. 4.40 adds support for V2 boards.

I cant really wait for the G3 firmware because I go live tonight with my Halloween show. I'll just leave the 4.30 for now.

The PAR38 120v flood I have are supposely "dimmable", but they dont really dim that good. I also have Rainbow Floods, but not bright enough, so I wanted to add the floods I used last year.

Just as an FYI... software and firmware version do but don't have a correlation with each other. S3 does not require Gen 3 firmware. Yes.... I said that right.
