CALYPSO opens CUPS 4.0 to developers

 

Calypso Instruments has developed both an IOS and Android version of the Anemotracker app to communicate with the Calypso CUPS 4.0 wind instrument. New releases with new exciting features are soon to come; even then, we realize CUPS 4.0 users' diverse needs require tailored solutions beyond our imagination

During the Boat shows attended this 2014 season - Amsterdam METS, Barcelona, London and Paris  Boat Shows -several software and hardware companies approached us to discuss the potencial use of Calypso CUPS 4.0 with their products.  After some thougth, we have decided to open Calypso CUPS 4.0 BT signal to developers. 

This is a brief tutorial explaining how to get the Bluetooth signal from a Calypso CUPS 4.0 wind instrument even before you buy one! The next paragraphs describe how to simulate the Bluetooth signal a real CUPS 4.0 casts so developers can start working on their products before testing with a real unit.   

Do not hesitate to contact us for further clarifications!

The tutorial starts with the android howto and then goes for the IOS notes. We hope you find these lines of value for your business and ventures!

ANDROID: using nRF Master Control from nordic

This link sends you to the Google play store to install this App.With this App you detect any BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) device in the air, so you can connect to it and see the services as seen in the screen captures:

Service 0000180d-1212-efde-1523-785feabcd123

Characteristic: 00002a39-1212-efde-1523-785feabcd123

In the value there are 8 bytes. Every two bytes is one value and byte order is reverse. The values are Velocity, Direction, Battery, and other check value not important. 

In the example 39-02 is converted to 02-39 in hex, and 569 decimal, and it's 5.69 m/s so it's m/s / 100. 

Next CE-00 -> 00-CE hex -> 206 decimal, and it's vane direction. Next 0F-0D -> 0d-0f -> 3343 mV.
