Thread: Project WL-HDD and Weather Station (WS2300)

  1. #1

    Question Project WL-HDD and Weather Station (WS2300)

    Hi.

    Can anyone tell me if user-mode usb programs will work, using libusb?

    I have a Linux project http://oww.sf.net, that can run a USB-connected weather station. I'm wondering how likely it would be that I could get this running on the Asus.

    Thanks,

    Simon

    I don't know about USB, but you can wire up an 8 channel A/D converter to the paralel port on the router. That gives you 8 analog measurements and several digital in- and outputs. You have to write your own I/O driver though...

    Remserial serial server

    Will it be possible to compile the 'remserial' software ( http://lpccomp.bc.ca/remserial/ ) to work on a WL-500g unit? Or does it exist other, similar programs taht already works?

    I have an USB->RS-232 adapter, and want to connect a weather station to the router, and access the weather station fom my computer as if the weather station were connected directly to it, and thought this piece of software would do the trick.

    I have never tried to compile anything on the WL-500g, and I see that it's a relatively simple program, si I want to give it a try, but somebody have to push me very hard in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    I guess you just have to give it a try.

    For setting up a cross-compile environment see other topics on this forum and http://wl500g.dyndns.org

    I connected my weatherstation (a wx200) to the wl500gx.
    I used the latest firmware with the usbserial and pl2303 modules.
    I compiled the weather software (http://wx200d.sf.net/).

    Serial port emulation on parallel port

    Is it possible to somehow connect a serial port to the parallel port on a wl500g r.1.0 ?

    I have a weather station (ws3600) and I'm checking if I can use my wl500g as the reciever/transmitter of the data.

    USB to serial won't work

    The weatherstation I want to connect is reported to not work with a usb2serial converter. They use the serial-port in a strange way (http://open3600.fast-mail.nl/tiki-vi...ind=&forumId=5)

    But I guess your answer imply that it won't work (serial port emulation on parallel port). Anyway, thanks for the answer.

    I think the wl500g have one parallel port, so you can buy an parallel -> serial Adapter, they are very cheap and the smartest solution I think.

    Ok, that's the hardware-part (something like this I guess: http://www.databutikken.com/no/defau...artId=AD101004). How do I go about solving the software-part? Is it just pointing the software to the parallel port with a converter, or do I have to do some extra stuff?

    remserial worked in my wl500b days ago

    here is my package.i added all the files in /tmp/local and a directory named sbin in the folder contains a file post-boot which startup the remserial when wl500b is booting up.

    but unfortunatly i chaged my usb-serial adapter,then i can only send datas from serial to tcp,and cannot receive from serial.

    i donnot know why.maybe the problem is the driver is not suit for my adapter..

    wish the package will do some good for you.

    I run serial over tcp successfully with ser2net.

    Look at this topic.
    http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=4535

    On my pc I have a virtual comport software.

    look here:
    http://www.hw-group.com/products/hw_vsp/index_en.html

    This works for my Solar inverter readings.

    But now I want to put this readings in a RRD graph, but I don't know how I can create a script to write commands and read the serial output. Some examples run on perl, but use a module which is not included in the microperl package installed on my asus. Any idea?

    open 2300 / weatherstation

    Hi at all,

    i want to install open 2300 on my wl-500gP.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/open2300/

    But I don't know, wether it has to be recompiled or not.

    Should it be run just after copying the files?

    Thanks
