I recently just upgrade my pool pad with an intelliflo VF pump. Its a beautiful piece of gear! I also made a FPGA based controller for it, where it also takes care of all my jandy actuators, backwashing, chlorinator and solar heating system. The only problem is I cannot find the protocol for the VF pump anywhere. Has anyone managed to interface to the intelliflo VF using their own controller or a PC? I have just setup a RS485 half dulplex connection to my pump and was hoping to talk to it. If anyone has any info that would be great.
If your happy to help out, im happy to share my design with anyone who also wants to automate these four tasks with a single controller. Im using an open source FPGA based Nanoboard 3000 as the controller.
