Hi Folks,

Have any of you taken a Trec monitor/display apart for a look inside?

At the moment i don't own one, (although i will most likely buy one in the very near future) but before i do, i am curious to know what Microcontroller is inside it. Does any one have any pictures of the PCB or MCU details maybe?

The reason i ask is, i have some firmware development work i need to do (not energy related) and i was thinking it might be possible to use the more simple Trec monitor as a basic platform for the early stages of my project. I could get an off the shelf LCD and PIC etc and knock something up myself but i figure if the Trec has some of what i need and it's 'ready made', so to speak, then i could use it as a quick starting point to save me a bit of time.

It may not be suitable, so i thought i would ask here first, incase anyone knows, before i shell out for one, just to see what's in it.

Thanks in advance.

Well.....

I now own a couple of Trec's, so in Dave Jones' words, instead of turning it on, i took it apart!!
