Re: Unity does not attach sensor

Unless Unity is running on the SBC itself (unlikely), you will need to add a network connection to your program. The easiest way to get code for this is to click the "Remote (Network)" box in the code generator. Then you can also (optionally) add the IP address or hostname in the box that ...

Re: New to Phidgets - How to Detect Motion and run code using Python?

You can find code samples to get you started in the Code Samples tab for the MOT2002. Simply select your Hub and Python from the drop-down menus. You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensor using the sensor type as outlined in the resulting sample. https://www.phidgets.com/?prodid=710#Tab_Co...

Re: PoE Splitter no VINT Connection

You are going to have to be more specific when you say you are powering a "VINT". I assume from context you are using a HUB5000 VINT Hub? If the device shows up and works from the Control Panel, you should be able to use it in your code. It sounds like you have already discovered the "...

Re: Read to different sensors in VIN HUB Phidget

At a glance, your diagrams look like they should work.

What specifically isn't working?

What is the addressing information in the DeviceInfo clusters?

Re: Arduino vs Phidgets

Arduinos are microcontrollers, which means they are the processor in the system. They run standalone applications, but will have greatly reduced processing power, connectivity, etc. relative to a computer you are used to working with. Unless you really want to learn the complexities of wiring your o...

Re: Recommended Load Cell

The 3132 load cell is intended for use in applications like kitchen scales, where they can be zeroed regularly. For longer running measurements, FCR4130 is likely closer to what you are looking for if you really need to minimize drift measuring up to 1N (102g). This is a 300g load cell rated for lon...

Re: DAQ1500_0 loosing zero?

How good are your load cells? All load cells drift (change offset) over time, and cheaper ones can drift relatively quickly. The expectation on these load cells is that you are able to re-zero the system between readings. If this is not possible in your system, we recommend investing in better load ...

Re: Numbers Returned

Readings from the DAQ1500 should be within +/-0.5 at gain 1, or +/-0.00390625 at gain 128. How are you getting a reading of 6170.2? The conversion of DAQ1500 readings to your units is defined by your calibration math, as it will be slightly different for each load cell you connect. I see from your p...

Re: Detecting a knock on a door

You may have luck using an accelerometer, such as the MOT0100, to directly detect vibrations in the door. You would have to attach the sensor to the door near the hinges to prevent the sensor cable interfering with the operation of the door.

Re: DAQ1400 Frequency Input error 0X14 after March 11 update

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

This is a mostly cosmetic issue with the Control Panel example, and the example should continue to work as intended, despite the reported error.

That said, we have fixed the issue, pending the next release.
