  • Question about probes

    Is an Arduino or Raspberry Pi required to measure outputs from probes/senders/sensors?

    And if so, how does one go about that with the software and unit?

    Thanks,
    stitch

    Hi Stitch,

    Welcome to the forum!

    For starters, you may want to check for the Getting Started Manual

    Is an Arduino or Raspberry Pi required to measure outputs from probes/senders/sensors?
    It is not required, our Diablo16 Intelligent Display modules have an analog input which has a range of 0-3.3V and is 3.3V tolerant.
    Please refer to the Diablo16 Datasheet for more information.

    To use the GPIO's available for the Display Module, you can use the 4D-UPA (Universal Programming Adaptor).

    Also, we have a lot of application notes, which can help you build your own project, please check it out

    Best Regards,
    Kevin

      How many inputs can the units take? I got about a dozen or so senders I need values read off of.

        Hello Stitch,

        Referring to the datasheet, Diablo16 has 16 GPIO Purpose I/O pins for user interfacing, which include 4 configurable Analog Inputs.

        The GPIO is variously configurable for alternative functions such as:
        o 3x I2C channels available
        o 1x dedicated for SD Card and 3x configurable SPI channels available
        o 1x dedicated and 3x configurable TTL Serial comm ports available
        o Up to 6 GPIO can be used as Pin Counters
        o Up to 6 GPIO for PWM (simple and Servo)
        o Up to 10 GPIO for Pulse Output
        o Up to 14 GPIO can be configured for Quadrature Encoder Inputs (2 channels)


        Best Regards,
        Kevin

          Compared that with the inputs I need to read, sadly not an enough. I opted and picked up an Arduino Mega and 43DT-SB-AR.

          Thanks for the input,
          Cheers

            Hi,

            That also works fine. Have fun in your project!
