  • Ok, I downloaded the Arduino IDE, made the one-line modification to check_emergency_reset, bought the inexpensive FTDI Basic 3.3V, and followed the “Flashing Firmware” instructions. Also got the “Open Logic Sniffer - Probe Cable Kit” which made it easy to connect the FTDI Basic to my OpenLog, even though the OpenLog was already built into a project. No more emergency mode problem. Easy as pie.

  • I hope somebody will reply with a suggestion since I think I’m in the same boat. I’ve attached OpenLog to a 4800 baud device. If the device is off, RX is 0V and OpenLog goes into “emergency mode” if I power it on. I can’t have “emergency mode” resetting me back to 9600 every time I forget to power the device before I power OpenLog.

    Anybody else think that “emergency reset” functionality based off RX being low is a bad idea?

  • Nate, am I correct in assuming that the format for set would be the same in config.txt? The following would be a valid content for config.txt?

  • The “BH9VPC” product described in the data sheet doesn’t have a barrel jack. Instead, it has two leads out the bottom, spaced .5 inches. I was looking for something I could use on a PCB – the BH9VPC looks just about perfect and is available on DigiKey. So, thanks for posting that link!

  • As mentioned above, the datasheet DOES NOT have shroud dimensions for this particular 3x2 part. http://www.4uconnector.com/online/object/4udrawing/03546.pdf seems more useful.

  • Another request for antenna clarification. Toni K said it doesn’t have one, but I don’t see any connection points labeled anything like “antenna”. Isn’t the blue thingy the antenna?

  • I keep mine in the refrigerator, as mentioned in another comment. I keep some on hand even at the risk of it expiring because it’s one of those things like glue, or wooden dowels, or perf board, or resistors… You keep it on hand knowing that when a Sugru situation presents itself, you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t have it.

    Even though I’ve only used small amounts, I’ve used it to substantially improve products I paid hundreds of dollars for. So I think it was money well spent.

  • Yes, you’re right. Pin #22 is PI04 which is the factory reset. Pin #5 is RESET, which is entirely different. If you look at Sparkfun’s WRL-10144, you’ll see that PI04 and RESET are both broken out in that product.

  • Would rather have seen RESET broken out than PI04, in this revision. Oh well, for those who would rather have RESET, WRL-10144 might be an option.

  • On the comments for another LiPo (PRT-10470) somebody asks if there is low voltage protection. SF replied that all your LiPo cells have a protection circuit. I’m not sure which you consider to be “your” LiPo cells… Do you mean that you won’t stock/sell a LiPo battery product that doesn’t have a protection circuit? Or do you mean that some of the products were put together by you and THOSE have protection?
    Ultimately, I’m wondering if THIS PRT-10053 (9v) has protection. Just thought it might help everybody if the general rule were clarified.

No public wish lists :(
