This is used for both projects:
Hardware used on Raspberry Pi:
- Bw tool
Getting the analog meters to work
Change analog meter value through the command line
Recommended to use the DIO protocol.
I have in my example the analog meter connected with pin 3(IO0).
bw_tool -I -D /dev/i2c-1 -a 84 -W 30:01 bw_tool -I -D /dev/i2c-1 -a 84 -W 5f:01 bw_tool -I -D /dev/i2c-1 -a 84 -W 50:80
If you are going to use a pin like pin 10(IO6). With the value 40. The reason it is 40 is, because the bits are in hexadecimals. So, 64 decimal bits gets calculated to 40 hexadecimals.
The reason why this is getting used, is because it is bit masked. With that you can add multiple pins in the command. So, if you you want pin 4(IO1) and pin 6(IO3) on:
IO1 + IO3 -> 02 + 08 = 0A
