Features Introduced in Release 5.2.0

1. DataDesigner supports new hardware for the 160 and 240E, which has been significantly redesigned. These changes are transparent to the user. The functionality of the new and previous hardware is identical, configuration is the same and databases from the previous models can be loaded to the new models. However, the new models require the newer versions of the command and protocol files. These are included in DataDesigner v5.2.0. The new command files are unique to the new hardware, but the protocol files support both version of the hardware for 160
and 240E.
2. Support for on-screen tag editing has been added to models 150, 160 and 240E.
3. Models 160 and 240E now support printing of tag objects based on the dynamic attribute Show/Hide. If the tag object is not displayed on the screen due to the actual value of the tag driving the Show/Hide attribute, the object will not be printed. If the tag object is shown on the screen, it will be printed.
