The DAQ1300 has four active-high digital inputs ideal for reading switches, buttons, digital sensors, and other devices with a logic-level output. This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub.

Features:

  • Each input can withstand up to 30V DC.
  • Short trigger time - Will trigger with very brief changes (~0.2ms), a better response than the VINT Hub digital input

Technical Details:

  • Isolation - Input and Vint ports are all isolated, improving stability and reducing the amount of cross-channel interference. Since each input is isolated from the others, you can switch multiple circuits with different grounds.

VINT Hubs

This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:

Product Board
Image Part Number Price Number of VINT Ports Controlled By
HUB0000_0 $30.00 6 USB (Mini-USB)
HUB5000_0 $60.00 6 Local Network (Ethernet or Wi-Fi)
SBC3003_0 $120.00 6

Phidget Cables

Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.

Part 1: Setup

Welcome to the DAQ1300 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:


Next, you will need to connect the pieces:

DAQ1300 Functional.jpeg
  1. Connect the DAQ1300 to the VINT Hub using the Phidget cable.
  2. Connect the VINT Hub to your computer with a USB cable.
  3. Connect a switch or digital sensor to one of the DAQ1300's inputs.


Now that you have everything together, let's start using the DAQ1300!

Phidget Control Panel

In order to demonstrate the functionality of the DAQ1300, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.


The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.

Windows

To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the Ph.jpg icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel

Windows PhidgetTaskbar.PNG

macOS

To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the Ph.jpg icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.


For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:


Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the DAQ1300.

First Look

After plugging the DAQ1300 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:

DAQ1300 Panel.jpg


The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:

  • Serial number: allows you to differentiate between similar Phidgets.
  • Channel: allows you to differentiate between similar objects on a Phidget.
  • Version number: corresponds to the firmware version your Phidget is running. If your Phidget is listed in red, your firmware is out of date. Update the firmware by double-clicking the entry.


The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.

Part 2: Using Your Phidget

About

The DAQ1300 has four digital input ports. This Phidget is best suited for reading switches, digital sensor output, or external voltage up to 30V DC. The device's isolation makes it great for using multiple power sources.

The DAQ1300 is a high active device. You interact with the DAQ1300 through the Digital Input Channel Class. The Digital Input state equals false when grounded and true when connected to a high voltage.

Explore Your Phidget Channels Using The Control Panel

You can use your Control Panel to explore your Phidget's channels.

1. Open your Control Panel, and you will find the following channels:

2. Double click on a channel to open an example program. Each channel belongs to the Digital Input channel class:

Digital Input:Read the state of a 5V digital signal

In your Control Panel, double click on "Digital Input":

Part 3: Create your Program

1. Setting up your Programming Environment

2. Phidget Programming Basics

Part 4: Advanced Topics and Troubleshooting

How do I know what channel, serial number, or hub port to use in my program?

Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.

1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:

The locate Phidget button is found in the device information box

2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.

See the Phidget22 API for your language to determine exact syntax for each property.

Using the DAQ1300 with a Switch
DAQ1300 Switch Diagram.jpg

To interface a switch with the DAQ1300, an external voltage source must be provided to pull the input HIGH.

Detecting an external voltage
DAQ1300 Voltage Diagram.jpg

The DAQ1300 can be used without additional circuitry to detect the presence of a voltage on a line from a power source or a signal by wiring the input terminals to the power source or signal line and the corresponding ground.
