Powerguru is a a monitoring, data logging, and remote control application for power generation products used for renewable energy. Currently devices being supported are Xantrex (Trace) and Outback Power Systems products.


Downloading Powerguru

Powerguru releases (when the release is done) will be found on in the subdirectory /gnu/powerguru/ on your favorite GNU mirror. Currently PowerGuru is under heavy development and although many features work, it is probably only of interest to other developers. Data logging works pretty reliably now.

The latest powerguru development sources are available via anonymous CVS. Use the following commands to check them out (just hit return when you are prompted for the password):

export CVS_RSH="ssh"
cvs -z3 -d:ext:[email protected]:/cvsroot/powerguru co powerguru

For more detailed information on CVS usage at gnu.org, read CVS Usage at gnu.org. You can also browse the sources.

For other ways to obtain Powerguru, please read How to get GNU Software


The initial very rough draft of the manual, covers the Xantrex and Outback serial protocols is here or here as a PDF. This manual is just getting started, but since people wanted the details on the Xantrex and Outback serial protocol documents, I figure here it is... This should be enough for anyone interested in writing their own software.
