Information for Merbon IDE 18.104.22.168
Upload of new RT from Merbon IDE 22.214.171.124 to PLCs mark100, mark120, mark125, mark150s, mark150, mark150/485s, mark150/485, IMIO100, IMIO105, ICIO200 a ICIO205 may cause „cold“ restart of the PLC. Project in the PLC will be started with initial values of the variables. User changes of time programs and similar blocks can be lost.
Upload of new RT from Merbon IDE 126.96.36.199 to PLCs mark220, mark320 and markMX is one way only operation. Older RTs can’t be uploaded to device with RT from version 188.8.131.52 (RT version 2.3.2304.68222). Upload of older RT can cause malfunction of the PLC. This applies also for new PLCs with RT version 2.3.2304.68222.
To access variables on PLC, with RT from version 184.108.40.206 (1.0.2309.49154) and older, from terminals or PLCs with new RT (2.3.2304.68222) using protocol SSCP, username/password combination of user „Engineering“ needs to be used (default value: admin/rw).
Version 220.127.116.11 controlls using if diacritics in solution. If the project on PLC contains some variables with diacritics in their names, the project doesn’t have to be launched properly after update to new version of RT.
We recommend to all users to use only the latest version of Merbon IDE available. Actual version contains repairs of some bugs and repairs to improve stability of whole program.
Software supports OS with .NET Framework 4.5 or newer – Windows Vista Service Pack2 or newer (Win7, Win8, Win8.1, Win10).
List of concrete fixes, that were made in individual versions can be found in „About“ box in section „Release Notes“ or in PDF file attached above.

Information for Merbon IDE 220.127.116.11
Upload of new RT from Merbon IDE 18.104.22.168 will cause reset of PLCs mark100, mark120, mark125, mark150s, mark150, mark150/485s, mark150/485, IMIO100, IMIO105, ICIO200 and ICIO205 to factory default settings. IP address will be set to 192.168.1.10 and all variables including the regulation software will be erased.
Update of new RT to PLC will also cause change of MAC address of the PLC. MAC address will be restored after hardware restart of PLC.
We don’t reccommend to upload the new RT from Merbon IDE 22.214.171.124 for all of the above-mentioned PLCs remotley. We highly reccommend to upload it localy, when the PC with Merbon IDE is in the same network as PLC, so it’ll be possible to upload new network configuration for the PLC.
Repair tool and manual for RT uploat to PLCs: mark100, mark120, mark125, mark150, mark150s, mark150/485, mark150/485s, IMIO100, IMIO105, ICIO200, ICIO205. Tool must be used for uploading RT to listed PLCs with RT older than version 1.0.1506.47503 – the rightmost five digit number lower than 47503.
