Real Time Clock and Sensors Clockport Module
« on: March 11, 2021, 11:31:20 PM »
New Sensors and Real Time Clock module now available from Amiga Kit Amiga Store.

It monitors the following:

* Amiga mptherboard’s temperature
* motherboard's 5 volt rail
* health of the battery powering the Real Time Clock.
* optional external sensor, for example, to measure temperature of CPU.

The sensors results are shown on Workbench screen through the software that can be downloaded for the module.

The Sensor and RTC module can be installed by plugging it into the motherboard clockport and selected RAM expansions.

 

Product link are below on the Amiga Kit website.

Nice. will there be versions
- without the clock (cheaper)
- with more sensor inputs, like 4, 6
- working on any (additional) clockport, selfdetecting
?
Is the software interface sourcecode available for download?

 Most of us who would be insterested already have a accelerator with realtime cloc. Would that be a problem?

Though, I already bought clock port cable from you three weeks ago and it is not shipped yet and asked when it will be shipped without a answer. Wondering would I ever dear order from you again. Not to mention AAA-bundle hasle, but that is different story.

You may need to disable it some how (i.e. remove it), as I doubt two clocks would be able to operate correctly at same time.

Socket for an optional plug-in secondary sensor on a cable (Remote Sensor).

It's very cool hardware and I'm tempted to order, but my understanding is it only has one onboard temperature sensor that reads the internal temperature, and for anything else you need this optional secondary sensor cable?

Is there any reason why this is brought to market before this cable is available?  I've lost count how many Amiga products that have been advertised in the past to have upcoming features that have failed to materialize, like the expansion module for Kickflash OS4,  Mediator Mpeg 2 decoding card from Elbox,  the 3D and PPC expansion modules the the PicassoIV, I might be wrong but wasn't there a planned expansion module for the Prisma Megamix card as well?

I'd bet a pot of gold on the secondary sensor being a thermistor on one end of the cable and a compatible plug at the other.

Widely available already from 3d printer stores, the only issue is getting the right sensor (they all have different resistance curves).

With a thermometer and a kettle of boiling water, you could work out what the offset was even if you fitted the wrong sensor.

The new secondary sensor cable attached to the sensor module.

The cable can be positioned on any custom chip or the CPU to measure the temperature.  Alternatively it can be used to measure the general ambient temperature inside the case.   The results are displayed through the sensor software which runs on Workbench.
