This firmware release deals with a number of minor bugs and issues. There are no major feature changes.
- Cloud IP address displayed on information screen page 5
- Firmware download option is now available in the “Other Settings” menu, allowing the firmware to be updated even if the zappi Advanced Menus are blocked with a PIN
- Preconditioning settings were not set correctly after a firmware update from firmware <3.112
- Corrected fault messages – “PECT Self Test Fail” may have been reported as “RCD Tripped Type A”
- Improved stability of PWM control if Compatibility Mode set to 1.00. This is necessary if the minimum PWM needs to be fixed at a value >10%
- Minor improvements to phase switching logic on three phase units
- Welded Delay” could have been bypassed when entering STOP mode when 3ph charging, triggering “Contactor Fault!”
Please note – an upgrade of the hub firmware to v3.051 or above is recommended before upgrading your zappi.

It might be helpful to the uninitiated to explain what "PWM" and "Compatibility Mode" mean, or to link to some articles that explain these concepts.
Good point Erik - we'll put something together.
For the time being:
Here's the obligatory link to Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation
The Zoe needs more current to start charging, so with Compatibility Mode turned on zappi won't start a charge in ECO+ unless there is more current available.
As soon as the car starts to charge zappi can work out if it is a Renault Zoe and, if not, will let subsequent charges start at 6A.
Very informative, I learned something new today!
