  • Phidgets 8/8/8 in RR

    I have the phidgets 8/8/8 board and i would like to use, besides the voltage/temp sensors, also the digital io portion, how can i do this in RR ? Also could a level change on a dig. input change say a red circle to a green circle in a skin ?

    Skippy76 added support for controlling the relays... regarding the digital IOs I have no info about it... I've always planned to get my hand on one of them boards to add everything it can do, but never did get one..

      dopehead: If you are able to provide the test for us (i.e. you are responsible for testing) I shall provide the update.

      IN theory I guess you may want a digital input to do 1 of two things:

      - as an indicator
      - as an action (e.g. if the state changes)

      What do you think? Also, Guino, are you ok with me implementing this?

        skippy>certainly i can test this, i have the board on my pc in the house at the moment with the latest RR release right now, and i have implemented voltage and temp readouts in my skin already.

          If you can implement it (have the means to), I'm all for it since I don't have the hardware myself..

            Ok,

            Dopehead: You need to give me some detailed requirements of what you want.

              Skippy, ok so what i would really like to see is generic support for the digital io ports of phidgets cards, like the analog sensor inputs via PHIDXX/f2c/volt commands, and then the ability to change the skin graphic according to the state of the input (true/false - on/off) Also controlling the digital output ports would be nice. I'm not sure what kind off info you need more than this, so i did a little screen dump to illustrate what would be nice.

                    i found it ok. looks very simple, but somehow it needs some fundamental changes to implement i/o ports, now of course i have not seen the source for the relay functionality you have implemented yet, could be you did most of the work already :-)

                        sounds good, let me know when you have something for me to test.

                          Skippy, i actually fooled around with my new mini joystick from phidgets yesterday and did a little piece of code thats lets you use the joystick as a mouse :-) maybe you can use it for something RR related ?

                            Skippy, I actually have digital input working in RR now, i just need to figure out where to place initialization of the interfacekit and the OnChange events for input updating, also currently its just statically linked to input number 1 on the card,and with a skin command of PHIO this of course should be done like the temp sensors....PHID01,PHID02 i am thinking PHIDIN01,PHIDIN02 and so on for the Indicator commands.
