Any idea when you will support android?


You can use one of these adapters. (~1$)



They have some API in the SDK to access



You have a special mode called "host mode" - and the base is linux - so I'll try to do some things with the exodriver. You need to root your device.


It may be popular as many companies are building product for mobile phones... (This IoT stuff...)

Thank you for the information. Currently there is no time schedule on Android USB support, but we do plan on looking at that at some point.


We are however working on an Android demonstration for the T7 which will work for the UE9 as well. It will demonstrate T7/UE9 interaction using TCP and the Modbus protocol, and will not need a driver from us or a USB connection to the Android. The demonstration uses the jamod library, but you can basically use any Modbus library and TCP to use a T7 and UE9 on Android.

Ok I did some work with the android version... using usb host mode.


On the U6 I can control the voltage of the output. You don't even need native mode. :)


I've used JNI to avoid reimplementing some of the algorythms (these "checksum" functions), but it seams to work perfectly on an android phone without access to low level layers.
