Before you start




The Hyperion EOS Control & Data Suite adds the convenience of a PC software interface to the control interface of the Hyperion chargers that have PC connectivity, plus a rich data plotting and export functionality for the charger results. It does not alter the fundamental operation and behaviour of the charger.  Accordingly it is important that you fully read the charger manual and understand the operation of the charger before using the software. Hyperion chargers are extremely sophisticated and powerful tools. They have been designed to be as foolproof and fail-safe as possible but power and complexity come with a cost. It is possible to maltreat your battery by the choices you make in configuring the charger – either from the control panel or from this software. Wherever possible, defaults are set to avoid this but the responsibility is yours to ensure you operate the charger correctly.


This software requires Hyperion EOS Firmware 5.5 or later.

Setting up the Charger


There are three series of Hyperion chargers that work with this software.


1)    The current Duo and Net chargers EOS 0615i DUO3, EOS0720 Super Duo3, EOS 0720i NET3, 0720i NET3-AD (AC/DC) and EOS 1420i. These chargers have a PC connection and the interface to allow full control by this software suite and the data functions. They have a built in USB interface and do not require an adapter to connect to a USB port, only a USB cable.

2)    The second generation Duo charger EOS 0610i DUO2 and EOS 0720i NET. These chargers have a PC connection and the interface to allow full control by this software suite and the data functions but do not have a built in USB connection.  Requires the adapter and harness below.

3)    The original chargers EOS 0610i DUO (the Duo 1) and 0606i-AD (AC/DC) have a PC connection but do NOT have the internal hardware interface to allow control of the charger by this software suite. We suggest the EOS INSIGHT for logging with these chargers.



Chargers listed in (2) above require the USB/Serial adapter and the correct harness. ALL chargers require the Silicon Labs driver kit for the USB/Serial interface obtainable from the link on this page:

Mac User?


This software is designed to work on Windows XP, Vista and Win7. It has however been tested successfully on all three of these running in Parallels or VMware Fusion on a Macintosh under OS 10.6 as well as BootCamp. See Troubleshooting for some comments on USB/Serial ports, particularly on the Mac. The data files produced by the software using the export functionality are in XML format and directly usable by Mac software that can read this format. For example: Office and iWork.


Hardware connection

Most current Hyperion EOS chargers have a built in USB connection. Simply use the supplied cable to connect to a free USB port on your computer.

For the chargers listed under 2) and 3) above you need the Hyperion USB/SERIAL Adapter Cable and a HP-EOS06-PCCBL or HP-EOS0606-PCCBL wiring harness depending on your charger.





Hyperion TITAN  USB/SERIAL 4-Pin Adapter Cable


(Note the small adapter at the bottom is discarded. It is for the obsolete Emeter1 only)

This adapter is used for connecting EOS CHARGERS to the PC Port for:


· EOS 0610i DUOII - Firmware upgrades and PC Software with full logging and control

· EOS0610i NET, DUO, 0720i NET - Firmware upgrades and PC Software for logging

· EOS0606i DC and AC/DC - PC Software for logging


Wiring harness



The HP-TI-PRGUSB cannot be connected directly to EOS Chargers. A wiring harness/extension is needed between the charger and USB Adapter:


HP-EOS06-PCCBL harness for PC Logging and Firmware Update:




EOS0610i-DUO2 (Full PC Logging and control)


HP-EOS0606-PCCBL harness for PC Logging Only

EOS0606i-AD (ac/dc, all versions)

EOS0606i (dc, all versions)



Getting Started


1)    Download and extract the software but do not run it yet. Read the Readme file if there is one.

2)    Download and run the Silicon Labs driver kit which will install a Serial port that the software can address through a USB port.

3)    Connect the charger to the PC via a USB lead (and adapter if applicable). Windows will install the driver if this is the first connection.

4)    Go to Device Manager* and check under Ports. There should be a device called Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge (Com n) where n will be a number. It is often 3 but may be something else. This is the Com Port number the software will use.

5)    Connect the black (-ve) lead of the charger to the power supply or field battery.

6)    Turn on your power supply if required.

7)    Connect the red (+ve) lead of the charger to the power supply or field battery. The reason for doing it in this order is that in rare cases it is possible to damage the computer by connecting a high current device that also has a USB port. See below.

8)    Run the software. The charger should appear in the “Chargers detected” window. If not, go to the File menu in the top left hand corner and re-initialize the charger. If the Com Port is not found see Troubleshooting.

Why you should connect the +ve supply lead last.



When you connect a DC Powered unit to your computer, it's important to know that a circuit may exist for current flow even if the –ve is disconnected between the power supply and the charger. This can happen if the AC power has a ground connection to the computer and the charger power supply. If the –ve outlet of the power supply is grounded, current can “sneak in” backwards via the Computer and USB connection. In the first schematic below, the current flows from the power supply to the charger through the red +ve wire and back through the black –ve one as expected. In the second diagram, the charger could be running even if the -ve is cut between the power supply and chargers, because it can take a back route via the ground wire of the AC outlet -> Computer ->USB ->Charger as shown by the path in purple. There is a possibility that a high, charger level, current could flow through the USB circuitry which was never designed for that.







Always connect the NEGATIVE side of the charger first!


Otherwise if the various power and USB –ve wires are connected to ground internally, the inrush of current can go the wrong way (through the computer), and can possible burn your USB controller on the Computer.
