Voltage Ratio Input

Double-click on a Voltage Ratio Input object in order to run the example: [[Image:{{{1}}}_VoltageRatioSensor_Example.jpg|link=|center]]

General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:

  • The voltage ratio is reported in Volts per Volt. For example, if the Phidget is providing 5V and the sensor is sending back 2.5V, the ratio will be 0.5V/V.
  • Modify the change trigger and/or data interval value by dragging the sliders. For more information on these settings, see the data interval/change trigger page.
  • If you have an analog sensor connected that you bought from us, you can select it from the Sensor Type drop-down menu. The example will then convert the voltage into a more meaningful value based on your sensor, with units included, and display it beside the Sensor Value label. Converting voltage to a Sensor Value is not specific to this example, it is handled by the Phidget libraries, with functions you have access to when you begin developing!
