The latest update for OmniLogic is available (R3.2.0) and includes a number of new features and enhancements! I installed the update with no issues, and so far, everything is working as expected. Here is a list of new goodies: (I'm playing with the new scheduling features for heaters and chlorinators - this finally appears to work as I would expect it to!)

Features and Enhancements
Firmware R3.2.0 for Omni Control Products includes new features and an extensive list of improvements.​
  • Low Salt Chlorination: Added a Low Salt configuration that lowers the alarm threshold for low salt operations down to 800ppm. (HLBASE only)
  • Pentair IntelliFlo VS Pumps Support - Ability to control Pentair Intelliflo VS pumps with Pump Converter accessory board (HLPMPCONV).
  • Expansion Panel Gateway (EPG): Expansion panel doubled the controls capability of an OmniLogic. It is now supported with the latest Omni Control Features including Omni Direct lighting and WiFi HLWLAN connectivity.
  • Default Startup Speeds for Valves: Added ability to associate VS filter speeds to valve positions.
  • Pool Cover Interlock Scaleback: Added ability to associate filter speed, heater set point, and chlorination percentage to the pool cover closed interlock.
  • Schedule - Heat and Chlorination: Schedules can now enable/disable Heaters and Chlorination as part of the schedule.
  • Dramatically Improved Interlock configuration: with added ability to associate a theme with an interlock.
  • Geothermal: Added support for Geothermal heat source.
  • Heater with Valve: Added ability to configure any type of heater with a valve.
  • TurboCell T-3: Added support for TCell-3 chlorination cells.

  • Network Settings Saved: Ability to preserve network configuration when performing a factory reset.
  • Cloning - Cloning can be used to replace an MSP. Registration of new MSP is still required.
  • Improved Simple Mode feature selection.
  • Mainboard temperature is now displayed under chlorination diagnostics.
  • Heater cool-down now adheres to the minimum filter speed setting for heating.
  • Added system configuration error checking and verification.
  • ORP will generate chlorine when the reading is less than 20 millivolts below the set point.
  • Firmware files with extensions will now be recognized and used for system upgrades.
  • When Solar or heat pump heater priority duration is 24 hours, it will restart its priority and duration and shut off other running heaters, every time solar or heat pump becomes available.

FYI, I found a bug in the new R3.2 firmware. If you have a schedule set up that changes the filter speed while the heater is running, it will shut down the heater. The only way to get it running again is to restart the Omni.

I have reported it to Hayward - we'll see how fast they respond.

I’ve installed the update and my heater now enables and disables as per the schedule, but my chlorinater does not. What did you do to get your chlorinator to switch on and off with the schedule?

I haven't tried the schedule for the chlorinator. It just runs when the pump is running. I can test that and see if it works. As you noted, the heater now turns on and off per it's schedule. It used to just sit in a run state as long as the pump was running.

Another issue I've noted - R3.2 shows the salt level at 400 higher than R3.1 did. I'm going to get a salt test kit now to validate what the real number is.

I have noticed that my salt level is running higher now and have verified that it is incorrect with my handheld meter. I am wondering if I should delete and readd my chlorinator to see if the scheduling begins to work as expected and to "reset" the salinity.

I just deleted and readded the chlorinator but it’s still reading high on the instant salt. I tried the schedule on the chlorinator again and it works but it does not update the app or web interface. From the control panel you can see the chlorinator enabled when the schedule calls for it and it is chlorinating, but as far as the app and web interface is concerned it is off. Very weird.
How do you report an issue?
