    eyeR Interceptor PRO for standalone use, or FusionBrain addition

    UPDATED 24-MAY-10

    ***Note: current eyeR pro users should subscribe to this thread to keep up with new features and updates

    eyeR Interceptor PRO now available, here is the Link

    Firmware update utility:.....FLASH_Updater_V1.9.8.zip
    eyeR drivers:....................eyeR_drivers_1_0.zip

    Latest Firmware:...............eyeR_firmware_1_2.zip
    eyeR configuration utility:..eyeR Pro v1.2 setup utility.zip
    Manual:...........................eyeR_PRO_1_1.manual.zip

    Related eyeR stuff: HERE


    Whats new in firmware 1.2
    • Increased servo adjustment performance, added shortcut keys for easy tuning.
    • Added support for MCP4725 I2C 0-5v analog output D/A addon for sensor testing and simulation
      available @ sparkfun.com.



    eyeR PRO Kit:
    1 x eyeR Interceptor PRO
    1 x Dedicated Climate/HVAC IR remote
    1 x IR remote for controlling intercepted outputs
    1 x Complete input harness
    1 x Complete outputs harness
    1 x Complete side entry harness (for PWM and servo connections)
    1 x USB cable



    Final board for the eyeR PRO complete with enclosure

    Both remotes have unique code so they can be used at the same time without conflicting with each other.

    Sample VB application that demostrates the eyeR in HVAC mode:

    This example gives you a GUI for for you climate/HVAC when you are not using your remote. Any changes to the HVAC setting using the remote or eyeR are simutaneously reflected on the GUI, so you will always know the current settings of you HVAC.

    Specifications:
    • Slimline design, 70 x 48 x 14.5mm (with enclosure) so you can slide it in anywhere. Right angle connectors to reduce profile.
    • Lower Standby current, approx 2 - 5mA (when device is in sleep mode)
    • Can be used in conjunction with FusionBrain and other output devices if desired.
    • Stand alone operation, device will function before USB port/PC has powered up.
    • Up to 11 intercept-able outputs. On board intercept LED indicates when inputs do not match outputs.
    • On-board transient protection for automotive applications.
    • all inputs can accept 4-15v inputs (level conversion not required)
    • All Inputs/Outputs can be read/controlled via PC respectively.
    • On-board Infra-red receiver for controlling the outputs via remote.
    • 11 Direct relay outputs.
    • Low power mode with remote wake up for when the vehicle is turned off. IR remote control or inputs changes can wake up device.
    • 2 dedicated Pulse width modulation (signal level PWM) outputs with up to 10-bit resolution, that's 1024 steps. This is useful for ultra precise motor/solenoid/dimmer control.
    • 2 Independent Servo drivers (direct connection) with on-board power supply ~6.5v for high torque operation.
    • On board 3-port hub for add-ons.
    • RS232 connection for communicating to other devices.
    • USB Drivers available for Windows, Linux 2.6.x and 2.4.36
    • eyeR and add-ons firmware easily upgradable over USB.

    I am liking this. The only thing I would like to see are 2 servo outputs. I need 2. One for heat control and one for heater/defroster control. But that is just me. Keep up the good work.

    I will look into a second servo connection. The only thing is that one servo can be directly connected to the board, If two servo's are required I could possible make a splitter cable that enable you to connect two servo's.

    I will let you know soon if I can manage to squeeze in an extra connection for the splitter cable.

    Saying that it also possible to add additional servo ports using an add-on that plugs into the drive-by-wire bus.

    Very interesting - second servo would be great
    If anyone gives me a rev - I give them the Bird

    Is there any way to use the PWM to control a HIGH CURRENT motor, like for an electric vehicle's throttle control?

    Thanks,

    From my understanding, the accelerator is basically like a variable resistor (fast & accurate A/D sampling required) and the throttle is controlled via a stepper motor. The eyeR can sample A/D but I havent tested how fast/reliable and accurate. The eye does a/d sampling, has the potential to drive stepper motors and high current motors (with the use of the PWM FET module addon)

    So yes, the eyeR is capable.

    Thanx for the interest,

    I know its been a while since a last update.. I have just sent the first batch of PCB's for manufacture. So I hope to have a finished product working in about 2 weeks.

    A little board modification (for an enclosure allowance) and slight component modification needed to be done.

    This could be the worst question in the world, but what does this thing do? I read it back when it first came out and I read it again today. Am I the only one?
