(I) Preparing the Crestron Control System Processor
Launch Crestron Toolbox
Make sure IP address is assigned to Control System Processor
Select SNMP configuration from Functions menu. Enable SNMP and reboot processor.
Add a new SNMP manager, enter IP address of SNMP manager and specify community string. For demonstration purposes we name the community string ‘connectrix’ with both read and write access. Make sure System Processor can reach the defined SNMP manager (i.e. ping test)
Our p-DRP-0057 project is going on stronger than before, we hope to get a working unit running and tested before Winter. It is entirely doable but the leaves are falling fast and we need to work harder!
p-DRP-0057 is a telemetry and monitoring system for remote control model, a scaled down derivative embedded software development from our core business project on telemetry. (Hey, there is always time for play!!!) The system features a micro-controller driven telemetry and sensing module installed on the model, the module relays data captured (includes RC signal to servos and various on-board sensors.) to a Windows console running Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
A recent wireless sensor network project has prompted the tech dept. to build a handy sensors platform. We snapped a couple of photos of the product and posted in our photo journal gallery. Here we are writing a blog about it, let’s examine it closer!
Here is an external drive case (Used to be an external DLT tape backup unit). Backup drive mechanism was long gone but the enclosure caught our attention as it features a 110~240V power supply with 12V and 5V output railings.
The Mac version of Autodesk Inventor Fusion was officially released on 25 July, 2012, this technology preview is available to the public via a free download at the Mac App Store. We downloaded a copy and got it working in minutes. Wonderful product, here are some screenshots and our test notes. Let’s check it out!
The past couple of months, we formed a small team to support our technology research in electronics and R&D in Physical Computing. As many of you may know already, our R&D lab consists mainly developers and machinists, none of us owned a 300 in 1 electronics lab kit when we were young. In this blog, we will show you how some of us ramp up our EE knowledge and to compile a quick introduction to Electronics for our readers. It wont turn you into an overnight electronics engineer but hopefully, we will all learn something useful. So let’s get started.
