Now, according to the TriMetric’s Technical Manual :
Serial data output: For extreme techies only: The TM-2030 also has a serial 0-5V output with streaming “real
time” serial (ASCII) data that could be used to control other electronics.
Oooooo! I’m an extreme techie! (Well…I wish I was anyway) I could get power system data to put on the obs status page I haven’t built yet!
This is where things went bad. *lol*
Well..ok..not bad. But like any good “maker project”, nothing’s as it seems, nothing’s complete, there’s no reliable thorough documentation…you know the drill. 🙂
SO! Over the weekend of the 17th, I was able to at least make headway, and start getting streams of data from the TriMetric!
Since there’s much to lead one astray, and I can’t POSSIBLY be the only one wanting to do this, I’m going to try to document what i find and learn along the way.
Code, pics, and diagrams can be found on GitHub (always check Dev Branch first!)
