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.
nRF Master Control
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.
ANDROID: using nRF Master Control from nordic
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.
iOS: using lightblue
Simulating the Calypso 4.0 with iOS: using lightblue
Once the LightBlue App is started push + to create a new Peripheral. Select Blank profile to ensure it is empty (see figures 1 and 2).
Next modify the Service UUD and the characteristic acording to the captures shown in figures 3 and 4. The Characteristic will have two properties: Read and Notify.
Push Value and then introduce speed (x100) and direction (between 0 and 360 degrees) in 2 bytes´ blocks. Remember that all values must be in hex.
Add another 4 bytes with 00 00 00 00 (battery and reserved).
The virtual device is set up now and to activate it click inside the tick on the left side of "Blank"(see figure 5). If renamed the new name will appear instead of "Blank".
Now the virtual device can be detected either with Nordic Semiconductor App or Anemotracker or any other iOS/Android App available (see samples on figures 6 and 7).
