Is the device firmware version available using the Modbus FC 43 Device Identification query?

All Schneider Electric devices that support Modbus FC 43 Device Identification do keep the firmware version number up to date.
The Function Code 43 Read Device Identification request allows reading the identification and additional information relative to the physical and functional description of a remote device, only.
The interface consists of 3 categories of objects :
1.  Basic Device Identification. All objects of this category are mandatory : VendorName, Product code, and revision number.
2.  Regular Device Identification. In addition to Basic data objects, the device provides additional and optional identification and description data objects.  All of the objects of this category are defined in the standard but their implementation is optional.
3. Extended Device Identification. In addition to regular data objects, the device provides additional and optional identification and description private data about the physical device itself. All of these data are device dependent.
