This is a python app that creates a small webserver for reading multimeter data. It only works with the UT81B which is probably the best multimeter/oscilliscope i've ever had the pleasure of owning.
This small python app provides a simple realtime front end to the scope's data, useful if you'd rather glance up at a monitor or takes samples directly from the json api interface it provides.
after launching try connecting to:
http://127.0.0.1:8182/ (html interface)
http://127.0.0.1:8182/api.json (raw json data)
much of the code was borrowed from:
http://www.lowlevel.cz/log/cats/hardware/Python software for scopemeter UT81B.html
This program was designed for python 2.7 and requires the follwing libs
sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib python-usb
I'm only putting it online so i dont lose it, please dont expect any updates
$ sudo easy_install-2.7 libusb pylab numpy $ python2.7 ut81b.py
