I have a Reach RS+, the newer model which reportedly can be turned on and off through supplying power on the 9-pin circular connector on the bottom. I’ve seen in the docs that this feature, being able to turn the receiver on when power is applied, and off when power removed, is available through the Reachview software, but for the life of me, I can’t find it anywhere in the program. Does anyone know where that control is?
Second problem, the 9-pin circular connector, which contains serial data input/output, and external power supply input (5-40 volts, I think) seems to be similar to a LEMO connector, model 0B, but I’m not certain, and it doesn’t specify anywhere what the exact connector compatibility is. Is it true that this is a LEMO 0B compatible connector?
I know, I shouldn’t care, and just buy the adapter off of the EMLID store, but after shipping costs, it’s about $65.00, and I can probably get one much cheaper elsewhere. My local EMLID dealer (Robotshop.com) does not have such accessories.
Any help on the connector type/size/standard, and where you control external power on/power off in Reachview, would be appreciated.
