Many users, including some of our customers, are beginning to use the Raspberry Pi 4 announced at the start of Summer. Unfortunately, the current firmware for Raspberry Pi 4 contains a bug which prevents our modules to work properly. This post is going to show you how to update your Raspberry Pi and correct this bug.
Once again, we have the pleasure to announce a product improvement. We are replacing the Yocto-RS485, our RS485 insulated interface, with the Yocto-RS485-V2 which is fully compatible but benefits from improvements in terms of electromagnetic compatibility.
Our command line library enables you to use all our modules from a terminal or in a shell script.
We have used this library several times to configure a module or perform a one-time task, but we noticed that we never yet spoke of another type of use: monitoring the values measured in a shell script.
Thanks to the new Yocto-I2C one can basically interface any I2C device, but one can also simply use it to test any I2C device. This week we decided to use this possibility to play with Amphenol's DLHR pressure sensors.
One of the complex and recurring questions that we get is the use of rechargeable batteries to power autonomous measuring systems. Using a backup battery for smart phone provides an easy solution, but adequate models for this kind of use are not that frequent. Today, we present two alternatives that you can use in specific cases.
