1018_2 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 & analog inputs

Postby Elca » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:51 am

Hi all,
For a project I need to use a color sensor and I want to use the phidget interfarce for a prototype. The color sensor is from sparkfun : https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10904

I have a question about the analogs inputs and this non phidget sensor

Can a put the VR, VG, VB analog output of the sensor in the analog input of the interface and using an external power supply 5v ?

Or I need to use the "interfaceing arbitrary sensor" method ? http://www.phidgets.com/docs/Analog_Inp ... ary_Sensor

If yes, how can I put the V5 and GND in each analog input of the interface kit from the sensor ?

Thanks for your understanding.

You can use an external 5V supply if you wish though there really is no need to since the 5V line from the analog input connectors should be sufficient to power this particular sensor.

You just need to connect the power and ground up then connect each of the RGB lines to one of the analog input data lines.
