Re: Interactive chart showing Concept2 pace, power, cal/hour, speed

Hi Citroen, Your mistake it to assume that the way (k)calories are measured on the PM5 bears any relationship to the way (k)calories are calculated in the real world and by any other sports equipment. The chart displays the same thing as what is displayed on the monitor. It doesn't make any attempt ...

Re: Interactive chart showing Concept2 pace, power, cal/hour, speed

Hi Allan, The calorie calculation is not the same as used by the PM. At pace 1:40, the difference is almost 300 kcal/hour. I recorded this video of rowing for 1:00 at 2:00, 1:50 and 1:40. The monitor shows pace, ErgData shows cal/hour. Matching paces onto the chart shows the same cal/hour value - 2:...

Re: Interactive chart showing Concept2 pace, power, cal/hour, speed

Thanks for picking that up. I was originally working on the BikeErg numbers so pace is off for SkiErg and rower. Fixed now.

Interactive chart showing Concept2 pace, power, cal/hour, speed

I quickly put together an interactive chart mapping pace, power, cal/hour and speed for Concept2 ergometers. These are the same values you see on the erg monitor. Having them all overlaid in a single chart might be useful when planning how to attack a workout. https://ergarcade.com/articles/c2-pace-...

Re: wacky force curve and PM5 usb support

Thanks for the link, its a wealth of good detail. I am wondering if the raspberry pi zero and the approach that I am using isn't fast enough to get the data. It currently issues a usb command (in python), waits for the response and repeats. From the comments in your code, it looks like you "poll" b...

Re: wacky force curve and PM5 usb support

I ran into similar when I was working on a PM proxy over USB a while back. Have a look at this code around line 454 . If I remember correctly there are a few ambiguous edge cases. If you are interested in the BLE interface I’ve done some work; check out www.ergarcade.com. All code is available on gi...

Re: Android Studio "Bluetooth Le Gatt" sample

For more browser-based solutions checkout Erg Arcade. The pm5-base sample application abstracts away all the comms so your app can just receive information from the monitor. Code available at GitHub.

Proxy for connecting to PM3/4/5 over USB

A system-tray application that acts as a proxy using USB between PM3/4/5s. Data collected can be passed to third-party applications via WebSocket . Implements most of the CSAFE and Concept2 specific commands. Requires Qt. Tested only on Mac OS X with a few PM5s simultaneously. https://github.com/erg...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

So how can you not figure out how to do a 2k sub 1:54. @paul45 Thanks for your comments Paul. Guess I'm a bit thick :oops: Using the rower as an addition to my training and not as an end to itself. Just had a look at my history and I've only done four or five 2kms including last season. Will be doi...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

PS - I wonder about your drag factor -= maybe too high? @lindsayh Thanks very much for your comments. I've not figured out drag factor either. I've read quite a bit about how to use the damper and it's association with the drag factor calculation. My home erg I have set at around 128 (damper 5 on m...
