Here are some of my observations, after now having some experience with the 180702.05 firmware and new keypads.

1. The protocol document states "Each L2-DM has an “ID” number from 0..240."
Some references in the the document refer to ID 239 as being the high end of the IDs:
"Up to 239 devices can communicate on the PDMbus and are addressed by their ID# (1..239)."
"ID#2 is reserved for the Gateway, leaving ID#s 3..239 for other devices."
I assume 240 is the correct value.

2. The following decrepencies were found in the document":
In "Reply Format A:" description, the dimming curve is specified as "dimming_curve=1=exponential, 2=linear, 3=steep exponential",
while in the Set EEPROM description, "Set ramp curve (1=linear,2=log)" is specified.

In "Reply Format A:" description, the pwm-frequency is specified as "pwm_frequency=1=60Hz, 2=122Hz, 3=576Hz, 4=1kHz, 5=2kHz",
while in the Set EEPROM description, "Set PWM frequency (1,2,3)" is specified.

3.When sending "Request scene" it appears to retrieve the scene off by one.

4. Assign Scene to a button [ID,7bsss] indicates 3 digits but scenes only go up to 64. Is there a need for 3 digits?

5. When a scene is assigned to a button, it only toggles on, not off.

6. I assume all commands listed under "SET EEPROM" and "KEYPAD EEPROM" are limited write while all other commands are unlimited write.

7. Are there any plans to allow a "mode 6" mode of operation on keypad buttons assigned to zones?

Thanks for the detailed analysis.
For items 1&2, I'll confirm the docs. There's a new, and hopefully final, firmware update coming shortly that adds a few features. I'll post the documentation for it before the firmware is released. It's difficult to use all the IDs unless you have lots of CH16 and panels close together. Kind of rare configuration. Usually EGWs are used to extend the space to giant numbers as they communicate over the buildig LAN. The BIOS of the EGW will be published and apps can read/write to it at a higher level than the devices with IDs.

3. I'll check this. This was a bug in previous version but thought it was resolved in _.05.

4. Correct. Only 64 scenes per bus.

5&7: There's a "scene Off" command and there's a new button config that allows scene toggle. I just checked the protocol doc and it's not listed so...Either it had a bug and didn't make the release cutoff, or it's there and got eaten in the documentation review culling. 6 is toggle ID, 7 is scene play, new: 8 is toggle scene, new: 5 is toggle/dim ID. Right now the toggle scene function requires EGW (or L2-FANC not out yet). Probably why I cut it from the release.

6: for sure. About 100,000 writes to the EEPROM. CH16 settings are unlimited.
