Phidget Spatial 1042

Postby IanBloomfield » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:53 pm


can I ask regarding the magnetometer aspect of the phidget spatial. I read regarding the calibration software. I have two phidgets connected via a VINT. it defaults to one so I sequentially connected them and ran the calibration software. following the instructions.

I'm using MAX/MSP for my programming language - just because i liked the GUI having no coding background.

it says that the calibration is then written into the firmware of the phidget -
1) does this mean I do not need to do any calibration in my software?
2) if calibration is successful what should I see with regards to the graph?

for me - it translates the circle of readings centred on the xyz centre and projects a green line which points slightly up from what I assume is the x axis suggesting magnetic north to be just up from the horizontal plane????

I'm in Australia, Brisbane.

have I interpreted that correctly? its just that one guide I read suggested that if my magnetometer was calibrated correctly then two values should read 0 if its on a horizontal plane.
