Programmable DC Power Supply
I recently bought another Digital Power supply, going for a more professional model this time. The biggest advantage is this one does not have a fan.
So I decided to adjust my existing program HCS to also support this power supply. I tried to make a cleaner implementation then last time. It is not as good as I want it to be, but a start. So do you have a Elektro Automatik PS 2042-06 B or a Voltcraft PPS-11360 you can control them using this tool.
Set output voltage
$ HCS_DEVICE=/dev/ttyACM0 ./build/hcs eaps voltage 6
Read output volage
$ HCS_DEVICE=/dev/ttyACM0 ./build/hcs eaps voltage > 5.94
Read output current
$ HCS_DEVICE=/dev/ttyACM0 ./build/hcs eaps current > 1.03
Read device status
$ HCS_DEVICE=/dev/ttyACM0 ./build/hcs eaps status Device information: Device Type: PS 2042-06B Manufacturer: EA Article No. : 39200112 Serial Num.: 3937461928 Software Version: V4.02 05.12.2012» Device specifications: Nominal voltage: 42.00 Nominal current: 6.00 Nominal power: 100.00 Set voltage: 12.00 Set current: 0.95 Current voltage: 0.00 Current current: 0.00
There is also an interactive mode.
- Update the documentation soon, currently it is lacking.
- Make a more consistent output.
- Fix command line parsing, so commands can be concatenated.
