I understand this. If there is the opportunity to lend a highresolution DMM, then its ok, to proof the accuracy of the charger. It gives a better feeling of security.
On my 4010, i saw instantly a deviation between channel1 and 2, on one or two cells, due to the high resolution of this charger (could be sometimes a cure). The difference was more than 10mv, because one was above and the other below the right worth. Then i adjusted the regarding cell ports. Now they are equal and I am satisfied.

Hi,
Just received the Reaktor 30A 1000W.
It has a USB connection so I would like to see if someone has used any application software with this charger or if there is any recommendation on PC software to use with this charger.

The white ISP connector seems to have a PIN distance of around 1mm, assuming the microUSB has 2.6mm from first to last. Can anybody tell me where I can get a connector that fits ?

Edit: It might, and probably is 1.25mm. Any idea on there to get a cable ? Connector in other end is not important me right now.
Has anyone from you iCharger 206B? You can trace up a connection between ISP Connector on the board and Connector on the Case. Then we can use that wiring and try to commucicate with PC. With assumption that Reaktor 2x200W has menu for communication.
ISP Connector on the board seems to be JST-ZH, or JST-SH.

Does anyone have a manual or know where I can view one for the Reaktor 2 dual 300W charger? Don't see it on HK site. Also, any negative feedback on this charger from anyone?

The dual charger 2x300w has no USB port!! (The others have one)

The manual is identical to the junsi 206b:

But is has the memory. And a connector on-board, with no listed pin-outs. I assume it is the serial cable, and can be used with a USB<->Serial.

Yeah; I'm working on it.

Looks like a standard CP2102 USB--> UART/TTL is what comes built-in on the 206B; dunno why they depopulated all that and left the TEMP sensor headers intact.

I suspect an external CP2102 one will work perfectly and with the original driver.

They have the ISP header connected internally; these:

fit and are JUST long enough to get to the other end of the case.

I'm working on connecting to it with my FTDI; if I'm successful, I'll post pinouts here.


Laters!

[EDIT]

Well; that was too easy.



Here's the pinout.

LogView Studio has a million bells & whistles, but I couldn't figure out how to make it connect. After messing around with it for half an hour, I declared it "CRAPTACULAR!!!" and downloaded the old LogView V2: http://logview.info/forum/index.php?.../logview-v2.1/

That installed flawlessly, allowed me to select the Com Port manually, and had me connected and viewing live data in less than 90 seconds.

BOOYAH!!!

I may revisit LogView Studio at a later time; but for now I'm tickled prrple with pink polka dots.

One caveat -

This connection is not the safest design due to "floating ground" in the charger. It woulds be best to only use this connection to a laptop running on battery power.

Internally, this connection is DIRECT to the CPU of your charger. If you're using some homebrew DC power supply or your PC is plugged into an improperly grounded outlet or for any reason there's a voltage differential between your charger and your PC, connecting this way could blow the processor clean off the board.

The GND of this header and the GND of the TEMP sensor header and CPU GND are connected to a common GND plane, but it is NOT connected to the Main Power GND. I'm CERTAIN this is why the iCharger "Custom USB Cable" has the Shield & GND disconnected. I checked with a multimeter for any voltage differential between the GND on the breakout cable I just made and GND pin of the FTDI BEFORE I connected to the FTDI plugged into my PC.

BE FOREWARNED - If you do this mod and your Reaktor reaches Critical Mass and has a meltdown, YOU are responsible.

I'll post a complete, easy to duplicate How-To with part #s in my blog tomorrow; I should actually be able to make this mostly solder-free.

You really shouldn't read this.
