I need to measure duty cycle. When I was first handed the project, it was presented as Frequency. So, I bought 3 frequency Counters (6 sensors). Turns out that I truly need duty cycle.
I am going to try the Interfacekit Digital Inputs simply to see if that will work and what I get for a response from the system.
I was able to locate a product that I know will work (not a Phidget unfortunately). It connects via USB and can be programmed via VBA. So, I can at least use the same interface I was planning.
Tech support pointed me towards an encoder interface. But, I am not certain how that would have to be wired up to work. Since I have a device in hand right now, I think the immediate need is covered. However, if there was a way to do this all within Phidgets, it could be really helpful (I don't get to keep the device I have and will have to replace it eventually.....)
Any other suggestions?
