Re: Temperature Control

The TMP1101_0 needs a VINT Hub to plug into so it can connect to your computer via USB. If you want a single board that goes direct to USB, you can still get the 1048 - PhidgetTemperatureSensor 4-Input, but it's more cost effective to get the newer thermocouple board and a VINT Hub.

Re: Pet feeder triggered by microchip

The read range on the 1024 caps out at around 10cm with the largest tags, and that's assuming the tag is held directly above and parallel to the reader. Deviation side to side and rotation of the tag from this position will reduce the range, and smaller tags have a shorter read distance. I doubt the...

Re: Hi

When opening a Phidget locally, you are limited to one process accessing it at a time.

If you start the Phidget Network Server on the computer the Phidget is attached to, then you can open it remotely simultaneously from both applications.

Re: Selecting a channel on a 1048_2B

Channel is only checked when Open() is called, so changing the channel number while the channel is still open won't have any effect unless you close and reopen. But if you want to use both channels, it's usually easier to simply open both channels at the start of the program using different variable...

Re: 1046 0 hub with 4 load cells

Press the windows key and type "about" and click on the "About my computer" entry that comes up. In the screen that pops up, Look for "system type" under "device specifications". If it says "64-bit operating system" you should use the 64 bit installer.

Re: VCP1001 Resolution

The VCP1001 is oversampled, so the effective resolution is much higher than the base 10-bit resolution of the ADC. We recognized that this was confusing so we removed it from the product name, but the enclosure couldn't be changed for our existing stock.

Re: 1046 0 hub with 4 load cells

There's no way to save the calibration, but you could copy the gain and offset values that result from the calibration and paste them in to save time. Generally we recommend re-zeroing for a new offset value every time you use the load cell for best results. We don't have support for live graphing m...

Re: 1046 0 hub with 4 load cells

For a quick solution, you can graph through the Phidget control panel:

Make sure to perform the calibration for each channel first, and click the graphing button beside the "weight" instead of the "Voltage Ratio".

Re: Phidgets and Labview 2024

There is still support for LabVIEW, it's just that all the examples are inside the VI tree. I was able to get my VCP1000 working with the "VoltageInput" example with no modifications. Make sure "isHubPort" is set to "No", because we want to be opening the VoltageInput c...
