Awesome, this looks like just what I need, I was planning on writing my own collection harness anyways since I'm less interested in the GUI.
One issue I seem to run into is on my Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64 system, the device appears momentarily when I plug it in and then disappears.
dmesg is showing:

[839917.951829] usb 2-1.7: new full-speed USB device number 24 using ehci-pci
[839918.048912] usb 2-1.7: New USB device found, idVendor=04d8, idProduct=003f
[839918.048918] usb 2-1.7: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[839918.048921] usb 2-1.7: Product: Simple HID Device Demo
[839918.048923] usb 2-1.7: Manufacturer: Microchip Technology Inc.
[839918.050668] hid-generic 0003:04D8:003F.000E: hiddev0,hidraw3: USB HID v1.11 Device [Microchip Technology Inc. Simple HID Device Demo] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.7/input0
[839918.168404] usb 2-1.7: USB disconnect, device number 24

After this the app doesn't see it. If I plug it in while the app is running, it shows data for a second and then it all goes away. Any clues on how to get it to stick around?

Thanks,
-eric

Has anyone written a CLI / python interface for the smart power yet? I'm just looking to retrieve the data within Linux with no GUI .

This is my intention as well. While I still have been having trouble with the USB staying connected on my desktop, I appear to be able to run the app on my macbook inside a VM running Linux so I'm going to strip out the Qt bits and have a library from which you can build a CLI and/or network service from.

Could we get CONFIG_HIDRAW and CONFIG_USB_HIDDEV enabled on ODROID XU kernels? Thus we could write a user land utility to fetch/control the data from the Smart Power. In that case wouldn't need HDIAPI external library.

I wrote a very simple command line tool to control smart power. Source code is here https://github.com/polarcat/smartpower Help is available within -h/--help switch. Any feedback is welcome :)

Just got the Smart Power. Looks nice. I wanted to install the PC software but a lot of the links are missing. Lots of steps to install it.

How do you hook it up to your PC any way? I male to male USB cable that don't come with it? I got one any way but not sure to plug it in because looks like it will do power in to my PC USB port.

Get stuck here:

Code: Select all

C:\qwt-6.1.0>qmake
'qmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\qwt-6.1.0>
Not sure what to do next?

You can find pre-compiled Windows & Linux x86 executable files in this link. (I've just fixed the broken link. Sorry)
http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id= ... pplication
File name is Smart_Power-FW-V31.zip

You can find the guide to build the code on Magazine 2014 October issue.

Wow thank you. That was so easy just unzip it and I ran the .exe and then plug in the USB cable that came with it. The microUSB on the side and it worked right away showing the numbers.

Thanks again.

I have Windows 10 and it works with it.

I love to use this on my solar power. Could I use it with it? It can go up to about 14.5 volts and not sure how many amps it can do. It's a 100 watt solar panel and got 4 big marine battery's it charges up when it's light out.

It would be neat if I can use this. But looks like the limit my be 12 volt at 3 amp. I guess can do more amps but not sure about the 12 volts.

14.5Volt seems to be very risky.
The maximum input voltage must be lower than 13.5Volt.

Hi,
Sorry I am still new to this so it might seems like a stupid question....
But I was wondering if there is a pc software for Smart Power 2?
I know that for Smart Power we can see the Power meter from the PC software,
but is there any similar thing for smart power 2 also?
Thank you all!

Since the serial-USB port in the SmartPower2 is used for debug/firmware-update purpose only, you can NOT use the PC software.
