Hi there,
thanks for this update.

Already flashed  ;D

It looks good so far.

|ON/OFF| button does not flash anymore at startup  :-+

|CC| icon showing at higher voltage setting is corrected too .

French translation looks good too (noticed 2 small errors to be corrected)
- --- Paramètres --- shows strange characters
If no way to correct it, you can also spell it --- Parametres ---, it will be "Good enough for France...:-DD

- "Max d'énergie" could be replaced by "Puissance max"

Default max power is set to 390W how can this be? (6.1A * 61V = 372.1W) maybe I missed something....
Edit : Indeed, I DID miss that it was the power on the primary side  :palm:

TANK YOU!
 :-+ :-+ :-+

If you have any ideas, what to add, what to fix, let me know.

Feedback is welcome!

I wish you can add in charging mode user settable parameters Vlpt, Vpre, Ipre:
  • Vlpt = voltage threshold -> if U is below when entering charge mode then don't enable charge! (protection for deep over disharge lithium)
  • Vpre = voltage precharge -> if U is between Vlpt-Vpre then limit current to Ipre default can be 0.1C (protection for light over disharge lithium)

br,
Tepa76

Hi there,
+ modified French translation (please check if all correct...)
(still need to make translations for German, and Chinese.)
Feedback is welcome!

I tested RD60062_V1.32.12c.bin
Texts are corrected  :-+
Everything looks fine.

The only tweak I would suggest is not to force the Fan on when V-SET > 40V (I know you already answered this issue  ;))

Just in case some volunteer would like to help with English/German translations, I updated the texts file.

Kind regards.

Since there are no negative reviews and interesting ideas, then I can already release the final versions.
Here are versions for all 3 models.

I own too many bench power supplies  :palm:, and I've been following this thread, and damn, UniSoft's great work and contribution alone is teasing me that made me want to buy this RuiDeng PS, just because of the custom firmware.  :-DD

Really, RuiDeng should hire UniSoft, or at least pay for this enhancements on their product.  :-+

Those new options (V-BATT, T-BATT, I-OFF, T-OFF) have meaning only for battery, therefore will appear only after detect the battery.

Just one small problem (not sure if it is mentioned before). When I flash my RD6012 either with custom or back to standard v1.31, I cannot set splash screen anymore. All I get is black and white start screen. Not that it is important but I just want to confirm if it is me doing something wrong.

Edit: I forget to mention that this is only happened when I use newer PC Software version 1.0.0.8. If I use the older version, it can write without any problem. I guess it's just the PC app doing something wrong.

Hi,
Did you try to start in boot mode when flashing Custom firmware (hold "ENTER" key while powering the RD), also make sure to reset config (hold "0" key while powering the RD). I mean not using the PC software to flash

Hello first let me thank Unisoft for this amazing firmware!  ;D ;D and all you guys who have been involved on this  :box:.
I use the RD6006 mainly for charging li-ion battery packs for ebikes. With Unisoft firmware I use layout 2 and 3 (graphic representation of charging process is important to me, been using an oscilloscope previously with my dual analog homemade PS)

I have found another problem with RD6006 module regarding battery reading voltage (show 0.05v less than real voltage). I bought 2 units and this strange "glitch" happens on both units. I attached a image explaining the problem. Do you guys have the same problem? I contacted  RD RIDEN and they said it was in specs, but I wonder if it can be fixed?

It happens with stock firmwares 1.28 and 1.32. I tried Unisoft firmware and the same happens.

Thank you!

Ps. I finally joined eevblog, I'm a regular reader, learn a lot with all you guys.

Sorry for any mistakes but I'm not english native

No! Due to low resolution of ADC (12 bits).
The option Upd. R. (Update Rate) cannot in any way affect the measurement accuracy!
It is just averaging the last measurements.
UpdR=Low: averaging the last 6 measurements (sum of last 6 measurements divided by 6).
UpdR=Medium: averaging the last 3 measurements (sum of last 3 measurements divided by 3).
UpdR=High: just 1 last measurement.

I tried Unisoft firmware and the same happens.
Sure.
I used exactly the same calculations as in the stock firmware.

I think you may be expecting a little too much from a cheap power supply.
Also, what device (Make/Model) did you use to measure the apparent inaccuracy?
Is that device accurate?

At least, they could offer a fully paid trip to RuiDeng where Unisoft (and nice translator) can charge $2000/day to consult with their developers.
:phew:

Hi Unisoft, thank you so much for you explanation. I've been learning alot about how this device works. I can live with this limitation it's a matter of just adding 0.05v to the read value. Normally I prefer technical explanations to better understand how things are programmed rather than "it's in specs".  :-+ :-+

Sure.
I used exactly the same calculations as in the stock firmware.

I deducted that. I really like your firmware, specially the layout 2 full of information, very usefull indeed, small size font but clear readable, at least to me. I like the way you place the INPUT Voltage spliting other parameters and separated different parameters using boxes.  :-+ :-+ :-+

Welcome to the beginning of the Volt Nut rabbit hole...

Hi Mr.B, I use an Unit UT61E. It was calibrated on Feb this year using a company calibration professional services.
Rabbit hole, that's why electronics are fun  :)
I know it's cheap, but cheap could be good  ^-^ but you know how we get when enthusiastic  :-DD

Save Current Multiplier
When press I-SET, V-SET, etc., will be active last used multiplier, only for current session (till restart).

I've the theory that UniSoft might be a RuiDeng employee since the beginning. Intelligently a way to develop cutting edge firmwares without the hassle of in depth testing required to have a minimal liability protection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skunkworks_project

That will explain the availability of firmware source code, not releasing it and ignoring donation offers.

If this theory is the true or part of it I don't know and I don't care. We have being delivered a great firmware.

I've been following the discussions here for quite some while now.  I greatly appreciate that firmware updates are being made available as people discover issues.

I have what might be a silly question / comment.  Why is it not possible for these power supplies be able to have greatly increased output current when the output voltage is low.  I do get that there may be issues with dynamic range of the current sense A/D inputs but that is easily managed with suitable component changes.

My great wish is that the 6012 could have an output current rating of 20 Amps at up to 40 Vdc output and lower.  Similar wish for the 6006: 10A max output current at 40 Vdc and lower.

The bulk power supply can handle the power requirements.  It is just the 6006 / 6012 that needs a bit of tweaking.

Comments anyone?
