    New brain, problem with analog inputs

    Hello

    Just got my brain and wired it up to start learning.
    However.
    When i connect it to a temperature sensor following the tutorial in Documentation and Tutorials i get wierd values.

    The temperature that comes out is about 2*10^15 degrees...
    A bit hot if you ask me...

    Measuring raw voltage and shorting the input to 5v gives:
    449657869338989...
    shorting it to gnd gives:
    0

    So: what am I doing wrong?

    can you open the configuration file with the configurator, click the logic icon (gears), open the root function that you see for the temperature sensor, and post a screenshot or describe it?

    and take a screenshot of the virtual brain, like this:

    Hmm

    The debug dont bring up a virtual brain here.
    Settings and results for raw voltage and shorted inputs

    Did that as well.

    No change.
    I'll try to download and install the program again.

    With the selections you have in that debugging options window, your virtual brain and variable windows should pop up next time you run MDX.

    But no value on the input should give that kind of output on the logic for analog output 0 loop, not the way it's set up...

    One thing that's confusing me is the next loop that you show, it's and it's parts are different, "Input 0".

    Is that a digital input that you've set up in the second function picture? It looks like you have a voltage type (Input Variable 0) variable and a temperature type (Variable Analog Input Variable 0) variable associated with the same input, which should be ok. As I think digital inputs have different icons.

    Seeing the two debug windows (Variable and Virtual Brain) may help a bunch here.

    Comments on the windows in the second post:
    I ran the configurator again and configured it for raw analog power input on input 0.
    First from left:
    Debug options, no change if all windows are checked.
    Second:
    The way it is configured now.
    Third:
    What’s shown when the input is shorted with ground.
    Fourth:
    What it shows when input is shorted with 5v.

    Reinstalled Fusion Control Center, no change.
    Checked all of the debug options, virtual brain does not come up when running the control center.

    So: any ideas what i'm doing wrong?

    BTW:

    The digital output works well.
