To quit the screen app, type control-A then control backslash (last post ate the backslash)
To exit the screen application, type: control-A, then control-.
These are the steps I used to get started (OSX 10.6):<br />
Plugin device via USB<br />
- Device may be auto detected as a modem (mine was)<br />
- No additional configuration required, select ok or show all and leave preferences.<br />
Connecting to device:<br />
To connect to the device without downloading additional software, enter the the OSX terminal application and enter:<br />
screen /dev/tty.<br />
Then press the tab key (not the return key)<br />
This should bring up a list of available connection options (listed as files). Mine was: usbmodem1a21<br />
Complete the connection command:<br />
screen /dev/tty.usbmodem1a21<br />
You may see a blank screen, press return and you should see a “::” prompt. Begin entering commands, for instance: REL1.ON<br />
A list of commands is in the manual
Is there a place to get OSX support for this device? <br />
I plugged it in, it was auto detected, auto took me to preferences-> network, and showed me a new modem device(CANA KIT UK1104). But, I can’t find any info for the config. Should it get a phone number. Are there any terminal command examples? I don’t see any of this information in the manuals.<br />
“"A complete set of easy to use commands are available for complete control of all relays, I/O channels and sensors.”“ I guess I am looking for a little bit of guidance on how this is actually done.
No public wish lists :(
