Cougar Controller Firmware update

I just finished updating the Open Source Controller firmware and the real-time display software.

I now have a lot more ability to tweak the settings of the controller, including limiting amperage, and using the controller to close the main contactor after an adjustable pre-charge time.

It's fantastic that since this is all open source, anyone can add new features to the controller through simple software-only updates.

Essentially, almost anyone can build a 500 amp, 144V controller that would rival a $1500 one, for about $300 in parts.
