Re: Using a Pi to Log Data in a Magnum Energy System

Just fyi the original code would fail if an AGS wasn't present. Not sure if Charles updated that? I modified the code it so it didn't matter what was connected.

As far as connections go, you should only need to attach the 2 data lines and ground.

Re: Using a Pi to Log Data in a Magnum Energy System

I don't have a remote arc, but when I sniffed using an unused port, I didn't get the bmk packets. With an Arc, attached to the router do u see the bmk packets?

Also do u have an ags attached?

Re: Using a Pi to Log Data in a Magnum Energy System

Willeert, JimmieJoe, have you tried the code I modified? I'm just curious how it works for others.

Fyi, I was able to setup a real-time web server and a plug n play adapter that works with the raspberry pi zero W. I can make the oshpark files public. Let me know if your interested.

Re: Using a Pi to Log Data in a Magnum Energy System

How much does your system draw? I was a little surprised to find mine draws 0.4A with everything. In standby that is.

Re: Using a Pi to Log Data in a Magnum Energy System

Hi guys, A few months ago I setup my Magnum and luckily stumbled on this post. I fought with the original code a bit to get this to work for me as I don't have an AGS. Big props to the original poster getting this working! I rewrote MagPy.py a bit to make it more flexible and robust, so I thought on...

Re: NOOBS RaspBMC and a kernel panic

Add me to this list. Changing to p6 fixed it previously. This is has been frustrating I must have reinstalled and resetup this thing a dozen times over the past 1+ year.

Anyone figures out the cause please let me know!

Need DS1307 RTC module

I bought a chronodot but am having trouble getting it to work. i2cdetect sees it at 0x68, so I know its connected correctly, but modprobe doesn't turn up the module. Where can I download and install the module?

FYI, I'm somewhat of a linux noob and have Occidentalis installed.
