Py C2 Monitor enables output from the rowing monitor to a larger screen or projector via a Raspberry Pi computer so that you can view your live rowing data more easily.
Based on the Concept2 PM rowing workout screen view #5, once connected to a PM3/4/5 monitor via a usb cable the program displays exactly the same rowing data as shown on the monitor, colour coded for easy viewing.
In view mode 0, the top line shows the Workout Time, the second line shows Splits per 500m, the third line shows Distance in meters and the bottom line is split between Strokes Per Minute, and your current Heart Rate if you are wearing a heart rate transmitter belt.
In view mode 1, the top line shows the Workout Time, the second line shows Cals per hour, the third line shows Calories and the bottom line is split between Strokes Per Minute, and your current Heart Rate if you are wearing a heart rate transmitter belt.
Once you have the program running on a Raspberry Pi, wait for connection to the monitor, then press Enter.
On the PM3/4/5 monitor, set up you rowing workout as you normally would and begin. You will now see your rowing workout replicated on the big screen.
Press Esc at anytime during your workout and then Enter to confirm and exit the program.
Py C2 Monitor also plots your force curve. To view the force curve graph press 2 at anytime during your workout to switch the display to plot your force curve on the large screen.
A force curve of your last rowing stroke will be plotted onto the graph along with your maximum force during the stroke. A total of 5 force curves will be plotted, colour coded to easily identify against the previous curves before the screen clears and starts again. To switch back to the data screen press 0 or 1 at any time during your workout.
