0.6.0 (7/24/2014)

New In 0.6.0:
  • Wireless Probes: Wireless probes take the iManifold completely to the next level. Realtime data acquisition and calculations make the iManifold more powerful and practical. The ability to calculate capacity, charing requirements, diagnose airflow issues, and find installation issues are only a few of the features that are unlocked with the wireless probes.
  • Benchmarking: Profiling is one of most important and innovative features of the iManifold. It’s not hard, but it does have a learning curve, especially when the system does not follow standard charging procedures. Benchmarking is simply a way of allowing the technician to follow the manufacturers commissioning instructions set up the system then in a push of a button record the actual design temperature difference of the evaporator and condenser, record the system superheat and subcooling and then use that information in the future to troubleshoot the equipment in the future. Instead of a standard profile, it allow an exact profile of the equipment to be developed and used.
  • Faster smoother operation: Several changes have been made to the application to better process the massive amounts of data that the iManifold manages.
  • Improved navigation features: The addition of user friendly icons to identify wired probes, airside measurements, performance, targets and wireless probes.
  • Expanded trends: you can now trend individual temperatures (T1-T4) as well as differential temperatures, BTU/Hr and temperature split.
  • Realtime data in the user input mode: This is a really cool feature. Readings that are streaming from the iManifold into the application are shown in bold and without a text box for user input. This allows you in the user input area to see exactly what you have to put into the app to get the most from it and greatly simplifies user input and the application use.

The profiling screens still only support English units of measure, but will soon support all units presented within the app.


 

0.5.1

General optimizations


 

0.5.0

Initial release. This is the first release of the iManifold app. It is can still be considered as a “beta” release as new features are still in the process of being implemented.
