Powerlinc II
« on: June 15, 2010, 02:12:32 PM »

Hi all. Anyone have any experience with this beast (1132B i think). :) If not I guess it's hacky tweaky
time here. I have a Red-hat system running 2.6.33 kernel on a AMD 64 platform. Any pointers would be
nice. I don't really expect anything to be out there but it don't hurt to ask the guru's I have no problem
poking at it with C,Jave etc, but don't want to duplicate anything already out there. Thanks People.

I have a few of them, but only where used with their TesterLinc Signal tester and their custom WGL V572 receiver kit.

If you have not gotten the users manual and technical documentation there are links on the sales page.

http://www.smarthome.com/1132B/PowerLinc-Serial-TW523-X10-Interface-with-12VDC-Output/p.aspx

PowerLinc II sounds more like their 2414U USB and 2414S serial Insteon Power Line Controller or the 2412U USB and 2412S Serial Power Line Modem. They can do Insteon and X10 signaling. The 2414S is now discontinued and the 2412S is back ordered for another month and a half.

Like Brandt said - see if you can post the model number.
I have an earlier version of the 1132B - and it's easy to program.

I believe it's *Wish* that has support built it for it already.
IIRC - Wish is the project name that builds /dev/x10/xxxxx entries on Linux to control the device.

Thanks for the reply. I see hat the powerlink II allows for attachment of TW523/PSC05 in addition
to a computer serial port. I have a couple of these also. Information on the use of these things is
murky at best. Is the testerlink product available from smart home also ?
Thanks ++

 The model no of the thing I have. is 1132B, That's the number printed on the units label.
The box it came in says PowerLinc II Model 1132B. Thats all I can see from outside.  Would
be most excellent if you could give a url to *Wish* so I could check it out.

Thanks for the confirmation. That is the one I thought it maybe
You are correct. I looked at one of mine and the box does say PowerLinc II.

The Insteon ones say PowerLinc V2  ???

Thats a really cool couple of links. Thanks. Is there anywhere that has a list of X-10 commands
for this thing?

Thanks again

If you have the serial version - it's pretty easy.
open() the port.
start write()'ing and read()'ing bytes.

I should have Java and 'C' code lying around somewhere to get you started if you'd like it.

Try making it 65 by 65 pixels.  Then it should work.
