Re: [PSAS] Rocket Tracks

2013-03-26 Thread Andrew Greenberg
 I have code ready to test on Rocket Tracks, and Chris and I plan on
 heading down early afternoon tomorrow to work before the meeting.

W00t! Good luck!

 Batteries- 2 12V batteries such as the launch tower batteries would
 work. Does Tim or Dave have these?

No, sorry, all the 12V batteries we've used (that I know of) have been
Glenn's. All my current SLA batteries are toast, so I don't have
anything. It's probably worth while to go to a battery store and buy a
pair of small-ish gel cells for use in testing. As long as it's fairly
cheap ( $50) PSAS can pay you back.

When we're in the field, we'll use Glenn's giant batteries (or large
ones that we purchase but keep offsite).

 Access to the EPL- could Nathan or some other manager head down? Ideally
 I'd like to get checked out to be a manager myself.

What do you need at the EPL? And what time? Nathan, can you help out?

 6ga cable, a few short 1/4 bolts and nuts and 1/4 ring terminals- not
 sure if the EPL has these. If not I can buy some beforehand.

The EPL has no hardware to speak of.

 I'll give a detailed update at the meeting. I'd also be happy to run
 through the details of ADC reads in ChibiOS if anyone is interested. 

I'm off on vacation, I'm bummed I can't be there tonight. Let me know
what else you might need!

Andrew

 Chris and I are going to use a pair of motorcycle batteries for now.
Between the two of us we had plenty to spare. I did buy battery
cable-making supplies.

 The main reason I wanted to use the EPL was just to take the opportunity
to get checked out. I'll wait, no biggie.

 The main reason I was sticking around for the meeting was to get K, Dave,
or someone who knows to look at a minicom port problem I'm having. It
worked before an Ubuntu update. I'd love to pull data that way for testing.

K, Dave, or other minicom gurus plan on showing up tonight?

Perfect.

Check out http://psu-epl.github.com/ for a schedule - just show up when
someone has office hours, and you can get checked out on all the machines.

 Dave, or someone who knows to look at a minicom port problem I'm having.
 It worked before an Ubuntu update. I'd love to pull data that way for

There's also 'gtkterm' if minicom is not happy. Install it and run
`gtkterm -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 115200`
