Great Suggestion! Yep, we'd like it too!! The problem is the little PIC we use doesn't have enough umph! We actually have a design to do this, but it is a few projects down the list. Do not give up hope, or hold your breath, we'll do what we can. Thx for the note. MDesert_AIP said:Any chance to get UPB switches that transmit separate links for single and double taps?
I have about 60 SA switches installed, and that is the one capability I really crave.

The main two UPB PIMs are statically serially connected and working well.
A few years back tried using the USB PIM in a virtual setup and could not get it to work properly. I did call your tech support and they were great and did say that the UPB USB Pim drivers would probably not work in the manner of the way I had it configured.
Hardware topology was:
UPB SA USB PIM = = > Digi USB Anywhere + Digi Edgeport 16 ports + other USB devices = = > Network = = > software Digi drivers Installed on VM.
All of my 16 serial devices and addition USB devices worked fine. The Upstart application did not recognize the SA UPB PIM though via the virtual Digi USB Anywhere connection.
Today I mostly utilize the USB UPB PIM as a floater and configuration device and diagnostic device and its been doing well.
BTW are there linux drivers today for the UPB PIM's?
Hi Millard, do you have any links the the Linux related info ? I can add it to my pages. Might help a few folks who are looking for UPB and Linux.MillardS said:Regaring Linux, we are not aware of any UPB drivers to date, even though we've supported dozens of Linux developers with the UPB Device Description and PIM Comm support tools.
If there is anything else, please call or write.
Agree on the fan control!Work2Play said:Welcome Millard! Glad to hear that it sounds like UPB isn't "dying on the vine" afterall - I wrote the article in my signature about implementing SA UPB - I would love to see some new devices - top of my list is a ceiling fan control. Otherwise, I've found tremendous flexibility in the product line.
