EVDash for Palm OS
EVDash is a Palm OS application that acts
as a set of dash board gauges for electric vehicles. It displays
battery pack voltage, amps being drawn from the battery pack,
and two different estimates of remaining battery capacity.
It works with Xantrex's
10, formerly called the E-Meter. Just plug the Palm device into the E-Meter, preferably
through an optical isolator to protect the Palm device and
start the EVDash program.
Voltage - Battery pack voltage.
Amps - Amps being drawn from or
put back into the battery pack.
Capacity based on voltage - Capacity
calculated from the pack voltage under very low load. Voltage
drops off as pack capacity drops.
Capacity based on amps - Capacity
calculated from the amps drawn integrated over time compared
to the pack capacity. The peukert effect is taken into account.
