This is kinda hardware but I figured you guys would be in the know.
Is there a car pc style PSU out there that has monitoring software for Linux? Something like the P2140 or DS-ATX but Linux friendly?
Sure, it's not a must have kinda thing but if there is something out there...
What kind of monitoring? Car battery monitoring? or PSU voltages monitoring?
The DSATX requires just a connection to a serial port.
You can easily write a parser for the output.
You could have it draw status information from the data stream or query any of the variables at will.
This is a very interesting thought, and if i had the money for a DSATX i would help you out on this. if you go this route please keep us posted
All you need to monitor and/or configure the DSATX is the brainstem and a terminal to read the output from a COM port...
I KNOW linux has a terminal emulator. ;)
