    Power Supplies

    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...

    TIA

    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.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    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.
