Thanks for the update!

For all who have wound fingers from pressing the both buttons to set up the update procedure:
I changed the baud setting in the UPiS_Bootloader.bat to 38401 baud and the update process worked immediately!

Hello,

there seems to be a bug in the PiCo interface in address 0x69/2:

Code: Select all
# echo `date +"%Y%m%d_%H%M%S"` `hwclock -r` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 0` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 1` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 2` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 3` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 4` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 5` `i2cget -y 1  0x69 6`
20140415_112138 Tue 15 Apr 2014 11:21:39 CEST -0.862090 seconds 0x39 0x21 0x09 0x03 0x15 0x04 0x14


Notice the difference in the hours value 11 in the hwclock compare with the 9 provided by PiCo

Hi,

We will test it, and reply at the evening.
There is also another bug, the relay is not working, as we are using the pin of relay interface for timing analysis, we forgot it and not fire the relay. AT the evening we will release the version 07 with already new functionality and improvements.

Thanks, relay seems to be working fine at 1.061 beta.

Also my UPiS now goes into LPR correctly after shutting down the RPi in BAT mode. Did you adjust the LPR current threshold between 1.06 and 1.061 beta?

Only thing I still have to get working is NO relay control from C code. Been trying to get this working, but its only reliable if I have the serial port open in another program???

I'd much prefer to control the NO relay via I2C/PICo - is this coming in the next beta?

Hi,
It is ready, however as Vit (maestro) indicated some very low level bugs, we are testing in a various conditions in order to be sure that everything is OK. We do not release any other beta, and go on with the official version, so we are testing it little bit more. Please also kindly notice that Vit made a perfect script that allow uploading firmware directly from the RPi. All of that will be included in the next firmware. It is matter of 2-3 days.
