Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

I've been using a Davis rain gauge with a phidgets 1018 for some time. THe rain gauge sat on a metal folding stool that I never cared about since it was always in the way. I just scored a partial Davis weather station off ebay for $20! . It has the mount and sensors for wind,rain, temp/humidity. And the connections are intact . I plan on adding couplers and running lines from the weather proof box to my computer in my basement.

I'm assuming I'll need a phidget frequency counter for the wind measurements. And I should be able to use the 1018 for the temp along with the rain gauge that I use it for already.

I am not sure if you were looking for a response. But, yes, your plan sounds solid and the Phidgets22 plugin supports the Freq Counter.

Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

Hi Berkinet,

Just got a new Mac mini which has Ventura loaded. I also upgraded to 2022.2. Now the Phidgets plugin does not recognize the boards. I reinstalled the 21 libs, and the preference pane seems to be normal and the bonjour web service is running, but the 8/8/8 devices are not loading. They are red and set to off in Indigo, and will not load the states or I/O devices in the preference pane popouts.

I looked at the debug (abbreviated):

To me it seems the plugin is working fine and seeing the boards. If that is the case, I wonder why it doesn't work? is that a Phidgets Lib issue, Ventura or Indigo 2022.2?

Please help if you can. This is an important part of my system.... :-)

Hi Berkinet,

Just got a new Mac mini which has Ventura loaded. I also upgraded to 2022.2. Now the Phidgets plugin does not recognize the boards. I reinstalled the 21 libs, and the preference pane seems to be normal and the bonjour web service is running, but the 8/8/8 devices are not loading. They are red and set to off in Indigo, and will not load the states or I/O devices in the preference pane popouts.

Can you see the devices through the Phidgets control panel?

Maybe I need to roll back the Mac OS or install Ph Lib 22? if Ph 22, I guess it will recognize and control an 8/8/8 so I don't have buy new VINT devices? Does one just recreate the devices and re-point the action/triggers to the new devices?

The Ph22 libs won't make any difference if you are running the Ph21 libs on the Phidgets server. Are your Phidhets connected directly to the Mac?
But, what you need to look in the Bonjour tab of the Control Panel to see if your ifKit appears there.

Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

Phidgets are connected directly to the Mac. I think this is the image you need?

Thanks again!

I went to settings on the IF kit and tried to do a read. It timed out. Here is the debug:
It really looks like the Phidgetsd installation is failing in some manner. If there c control panel cannot see the ifKit, it cannot polish it to other services, like the Plugin. Have you tried calling Phiodgets tech support? They are usually pretty helpful.

Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

Well, to make it easy, I reverted my computer back to Big Sur and roll back Indigo to 2021.2. Everything is working.

It’s too bad that upgrades break things.

Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

I'm considering upgrading to Ventura and wondering if anyone else has encountered problems (or success) with Phidgets plugin running under this OS? Also, any confirmation as to whether the plugin is compatible with 2022.2+ (Python 3)?

Unfortunately, I have no plans to upgrade this plug-in to python 3. The major issue is, Phidgets has dropped support and development for Phidgets 2.1. So, there really is no future. And the major effort required to convert to Python3 is just not be worth the effort .

If someone would like to take it over, I would be glad to assist. The other option is to switch to the new Phidgets22 plug-in.

Re: Phidgets Plugin Discussion

If I upgrade to Phidgets library 22, do I then need to upgrade to the new Phidgets VINT devices or can I keep my same old 8/8/8 I/O boards?

What is involved in going from 21 libs to 22 libs? Creating a new IF Kit device for each existing IF Kit? Then reassign the existing devices to the new Phidgets 22 IF kits?

You can keep all of your old devices with the 2.2 libs. However, while the 2.2 plugin will support all your devices, the phillosophy is quite different from the old plugin. The 2.2 plugin follows the 2.2 mo]device model.
