Identifying Your Firmware version: AquaCalc 5000
The AquaCalc 5000 comes with either of two versions of firmware: The Basic (G) firmware or the Advanced
(formerly known as the Professional Series) firmware (H). There may be several revisions within each version (such as G1-G7a or H1-H7a, etc.).
The version of firmware you have in your AquaCalc can be determined when you first turn on the unit. The display will first flash the opening screen looking
which show the model and date of the firmware. This is followed by a second screen that will show the letter and numbers identifying the version and revision numbers.

Identifying Basic firmware versions
When first turned on the Basic firmware will show:
The above shows the Basic firmware (G) revision 5, for the AquaCalc 5000 with a built-in clock (AQC5).
Recent Basic firmware revisions
G5 - Stable release for available for several years
G6 - Added New Standard 2 Rating Tables. Unfortunately introduced problems with counting.
- Fixed counting problem introduced with G6. Added new counting algorithm that reduces turbulent flow resets. Contains a default 2:1 timing ratio
from one revolution to the next which is not user selectable. If the time for a revolution is more than twice that for the previous revolution, the AquaCalc registers turbulent flow conditions and resets.
G7b - June 8, 2000 Added user selectable sensitivity to turbulent flow conditions with a 4:1 or 8:1 settings.
The Advanced firmware will show a screen like the following for revisions H1 through H6.
For older versions, there is no way to tell which revision you have. More recent versions will show the complete version number and letter:
Recent Advanced Revision History
H5 - Stable release available for several years
H6 - Minor bug fixes, including a random problem with loading station zero.
H7 - Added New Standard 2 Rating Tables.
H8a - Internal JBS version. Not released
H8b - June 8, 2000 Added user selectable sensitivity to turbulent flow, which reduces resets. Useful mostly with Pygmy meters. Contains a default 4:1
timing ratio and a user selectable “loose” ratio of 8:1 for conditions where you just have to measure. If the time for a revolution is more than 4 times (or
8 times) that for the previous revolution, the AquaCalc registers turbulent flow conditions and resets.User selectable 4:1 or 8:1 timing ratios.
