Hello,

Ubuntu 18.04
indi 1.8.0

Has anybody purchased the UPBv2 yet? If so, has anybody been able to successfully connect to the device through Ekos? I can connect to it through another open source piece of software. Please let me know if you have been able to connect to this new device. Thanks.\

I have the first version of this hub, but the INdI driver is not set up to work with version 2 as of yet... :(

The Ultimate Powerbox v2 has a slightly different and extended command language (see attached document), so the Ultimate Powerbox v1 INDI driver needs to be updated/extended.

Good news is, Ekos is now communicating with the UPBv2. I will upload logs after more testing.

Hello Jasem,

Attached is the log file for the UPBv2. I have also included a list of observations. Thank you.

1. [WARNING] Received wrong number of power sensor data. Retrying...

2. Cannot obtain absolute position of focuser stepper motor. Stepper motor makes a loud "crunching" sound.

3. 'Dew' tab > Dew B is not measuring current.

4. 'Dew' tab > Dew C is not measuring current.

5. 'Power' tab > "Power on boot" option not retaining data after configuration save.

6. 'Main Control' tab > Adjustable output voltage setting is not being retained after a configuration save.

I'd also like to add that the following:

7. The adjustable voltage output isn't outputting any voltage no matter how the parameter is set (Could be moved to the "Power" tab.

8. USB ON/OFF control of individual ports. (2 of the ports on the UPBv2 hub are "Off".

9. Will the changes to the driver be incorporated to the raspi repo as well?

Hi Jasem,

I've pulled and I'm currently testing. Thanks for all you do for the community.

Statement #8:

I was referring to the fact that each of the 6 USB ports are individually controllable using the U#:b command (e.g. U1:1 = ON or U1:0 = OFF). The same for all 6 USB ports. Two out of the 6 ports are 'OFF' on my UPBv2. This individual USB port control is in addition to the global control over the USB hub using the
PU:b command.

Kindly,
cl330b
