Yes so that when connected to a host USB, which could be a computer but also an Iconnectivity or BomeBox, the host can display for example MC8-275899 and MC8-377444 . So when you connect several MC8 you can differentiate them.
The number could be a fixed one you extract from each hardware.
I know that I suggested we could input it in global controller settings if it is impossible to extract a fixed unique number from each hardware. But the value extracted for hardwaare would limit the errors due to bad input.
Not the main intention, it is mainly the one I explained before.
I know that there is a problem managing 2 MCxx in same session of editor, but this is not a mandatory request, we can continue connect and disconnect and transfer bank backup files
EDIT : I just realized that the MC8 USB port names are already built with a fixed number.
Sorry for not being uptodate on this, so remove the part of my request concerning USB names.
But couldn’t you use the same number you use to differentiate the usb port name, to differentiate the files names you create. Take the USB port name to prefix each file name rather than simply the device model ?
