Note: This has been depreciated and is not available any more. Please see the new version of this device.

We have been developing software for use with the pedalog pedal power monitor, which is available from this page. This has been in conjunction with Dan Haughey of PoWWow Pedal Power.

 

Please note: to connect to a PC you will need a USB type A to B cable (the same as a USB printer connector).

Windows software

Please download the pedalog software here.

This software will guide you through the installation process. It is designed to run on all Windows based computers.

Linux software

Instructions for Debian/Ubuntu:

Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and add the following lines to the bottom of the file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/powwow-pedal-power/pedalog/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/powwow-pedal-power/pedalog/ubuntu maverick main

Save and close that file. Then in the terminal type:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install pedalog-interface

This should install the pedalog-interface under an ‘Education’ tab in your Applications.

Mac software

At present, this software is untested on Apple Mac products. Although it should run with no problems, at present we cannot say there is a Mac version available. Watch this space, though as we will soon be sorting this out.

Latest software repository

We are constantly updating and improving the pedalog software. The most recent versions of the software can be found at the github repository of powwow pedal power. Code to work with both Linux and Windows can be found here. We are trying to ensure that future versions are cross-platform.
The github repository is for those who would like to alter the code or try something new. All the code here is open source and under a GPL. Please keep us informed of any great improvements and interfaces that you make.

Pedalog firmware

The pedalog itself has a small microcontroller – a PIC 18F4550. This contains firmware which is occasionally updated. The PIC code has a github repository, where the latest version is available. Again, this is for technical users who would like to see the code and play with it. Please ensure that all authors are credited and keep us informed if this code is useful.

The latest firmware file is available here. ***LINK***

Instructions for uploading the latest firmware are available here. ***LINK***
