To cope with various building automation applications, MEAN WELL has decided to add additional Shutter/Blind function on the KAA-8R switching actuator series for upgrading it to the so-called “Universal Actuator” on the market.
The existing functionality has been completely preserved and new functions can be found in the application database version 2.0 either using ETS Online Catalog or download directly via the KAA-8R product page from MEAN WELL website. The application database version being used should match with the firmware version shown in Table 1.
Units with old firmware can continue work with application database version 1.4. Should the user want to upgrade the units in hand? Follow the link to update the firmware.
The phasing-in process at the production lot is shown in the Table 2. It is going to be entirely seamless to the customers, both logistically (same ordering codes) and commercially (same prices).
