H5000 CPU Software Update

The latest software for the H5000 CPU provides several performance enhancements along with a collection of updates and fixes based on feedback from users.


  • Fixed a potential issue with one invalid wind data sample being used immediately following an automatic fail-safe CPU restart. In some cases, the wind data would be invalid at the time of restart, which could cause a momentary incorrect reading of the True Wind data and associated functions.
