Power meter module for the openASC project

I have worked a bit lately on the power meter for the openASC project. I did some tests today with the openASC control box hooked up and I think it looks pretty nice. The high VSWR is probably because the power meter sensor is just calibrated on forward power, I need to calibrate the reflected power as well. These sensors send out data of which kind of sensor it is so depending on its power range the scales on the openASC box automatically changes. The openASC box just needs to know what address the pickup corresponding to the box has got and it will show power from that sensor. It is also possible to configure the update rate of the display, how fast we wish to bargraph to change and also the text values, which is also configurable between peak power and average power.
