Sorry for not responding quickly, I thought all had seen the notice about the firmware upgrade from Eaton.
My workaround seems to work for about 10 cycles of the error light, then the Eaton EVSE goes into maintenance error at my local station(noted also in the Eaton manual). I have my home EVSE now, and haven't been to the offending stations in quite a while to check on the firmware update. I did call the owner of the machines to get the ball rolling, but since it is a local government agency, I have sincere doubts that it will be followed through on.
If you are still having problems with your local EVSE, I recommend contacting the owner (I used the contact info on plugshare to get the phone no) and asking that the update be performed. To my knowledge, it is free to them, but may be dependent on warrantee status.
