Pegasus Saddle Powerbox, INDI/ EKOS connection

Post by Hahner107 »

Hello,

i want to use the Saddle Power Box with Stellarmate X 1.8.0 (INDI). It is not possible to get a connection. The port in Indi with the PPBA Driver has always the following Name:
/dev/serial/by-id/usb-Espressif_USB_JTAG_serial_debug_unit_40:4C:CA:C8:96:04-if00
On this port i get no connection to the Saddle Powerbox via INDI/EKOS.
If i connect with the UPB Driver i get the same port Name and in this case also a connection but this Driver is not working correctly with th Saddle Powerbox because of the different functionalities form the UPB and SPB.
Any ideas?

Best regards Markus

The UPB Driver provides the same port name and, in this instance, a connection. However, the Saddle Powerbox is not functioning properly due to the disparate functionalities of the UPB and SPB.

Hi,

Try updating the INDI drivers and firmware for your Saddle Powerbox. Ensure you select the correct driver in INDI, specifically for the Powerbox. If issues persist, consider reachingcoreball out to Pegasus Astro support for further assistance.
