      • Redesigned replay system for enhanced performance and stability.
        NOTE:  The redesigned replay feature is not compatible with the previous replay  feature.  After updating the firmware, the MATE3s will delete any existing replay files from the SD card.  The new replay feature currently supports seven days of replay data.
    • Bug Fixes:
      • Fixed multiple issues that caused calibration values to be incorrect and out of range.
      • Fixed CRC calculation issue that could cause failure of certain OPTICS RE messages and of uploading replay files.
    • Enhancements:
      • Added Event LED notification for charge controller (CC) ground fault (FM100 models only).
      • Added exclamation mark fault indicator next to CC icon on the Home Screen for:
        - Arc fault (FM100-300VDC-AFCI model only)
        - Ground fault (FM100 models only)
        - Rapid shutdown / input fault
      •  Removed support for previous AC Coupling feature (the ROCB version, not the relay version).
    • Known Issues:
      • Calibration. When updating from 1.4.0, please check your calibration settings to make sure they have not changed and that they are in range.
      • Connection to OPTICS RE. If your MATE3s does not connect to OPTICS RE after updating the firmware, and you're sure your network connection is strong and stable, try running the firmware update again. This will trigger rebuilding certain internal files that may help clear the connectivity problem.
