Re: RPM resolution?

Good luck.

Do not forget also to change
#define PULSES_PER_ROTATION 2
to
#define PULSES_PER_ROTATION 1

Re: RPM resolution?

Indeed 4 means D4. An opto coupler would be good but I do not know if your pulse have enough power to drive it. An opto coupler needs usually about 5/10 mA at the input side. To protect the arduino pin, you can also add a diode between the divider (if any) and the 5V vcc in order to limit the voltag...

Re: RPM resolution?

Here you define the pin connected to the Rx // ****** 1.1 - Pin connected to Rx ******** #define PIN_SERIALTX 4 // The pin which transmits the serial data to the telemetry receiver, Usually pin 4 (otherwise pin 2) Then you have also to connect the signal with the pulses for RPM. This signal must swi...

Re: RPM resolution?

Yo do not need to use the configurator. You can just edit manually the 2 files oXs_config.basic.h and oXs_config_advanced.h. Just change the YES/NO options and some parameters according to your need. All the lines needed for the setup already exist in those 2 files. So no need to copy/paste from oXs...

Re: New beta version of openXsensor (=openXvario)

I just put on github a new version of openXsensor. This version is supposed to accept the files generated by the configurator program. I still noticed that the VOLTAGE_REFERENCE value in the file was in Volt with a decimal (3.3). it must be in mVolt and not in Volt (so e.g. 3300 and not 3.3). I did ...

Re: OpenXsensor Configurator

It is a program that run on you pc that allows you in an easy way to generate the config files.
So it avoid to edit manually the files oXs_config_basic.h and oXs_config_advanced.h.

Compilation and flashing must still be done using the Arduino IDE.

Re: RPM resolution?

You have to change mainly oXs_config_basic.h.
I think you have also 1 parameter to change in oXs_config_advanced.h

Please read first the file oXs_config_description.h
This one contains the documentation.

You can use openXsensor with an arduino pro mini (or nano) Dowload the project from github. In the folder openXsensor of the project you can find a file oXs_config_description.h that provides many instructions. In practice, you open the openXsensor.ino file in the Arduino IDE and you basicaly have j...

Re: openxsensor Feature Request: lost model buzzer

Ok, I've looked to the Sequencer description, but it seems to output a steady signal 0% or 100%, for each sequence. This works with things like led, but a piezoelectric buzzer requires an oscillating signal to work. In fact almost every guide found on Google suggests to use the "tone" function. I h...

I replaced the version of oXsConfigurator on Github.
The new version support more parameters and protocols.
It also allows to read directly the doc provided in oXs_config_description.h

I did not test all parameters.

openXsensor offers lot of possibilities but the drawback is that setting up the configuration files (advanced and basic) can be quite difficult the first time you use it. In the past, a configurator application had been developped to make it easier but this application had not been updated and could...
