Re: [force_ev] Palm Pilot software for E-Meter
- Don't know about the Palm, since I'm not into those, but I've been using
BRUSA's software on a Stylistic pen computer in my force for a month or two
now. I plan to write my own dash program, but their's works well. I have
the computer placed on the console for now... hopefully it'll be customized
into the dash when I get around to the physical stuff.
My force has a BRUSA controller with a RS-422 interface. Since my car has
a BRUSA e-meter, and I don't have any real info on it, I elected to use the
controller interface. I used a custom converter cable to convert that to
RS-232 and put it into the serial port on this pen-based 486 PC. Works
like a champ.
Didn't plan to brag about it until I had time to write my own software, but
this is worth playing with, and it gives lots of info from the
controller... more than my planned e-dash program will provide. The
software can be downloaded form BRUSA's web site. If anyone is interested
I can provide details on the RS-422 to RS-232 converter.
