Using outputs in WSN-3202

[ Edited ]
Good morning,
I have a doubt. You are aware that the sensor WSN-3202 has 4 analog inputs and4 digital outputsa doubt arises in respect of this sensor outputs.
For example, for connecting a LED (6V) to one of the outputs of the sensor, I have to do?
Best regards,
Hugo Santos

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

Mr Santos,

 

Are-you asking how to wire a LED to the WSN-3202 ? Relying on the manual, you have to wire it to pins 9 and 10 for instance. Be sure that the module is configured as you wish (in the project explorer, right-click on the module and select properties).

Pay attention to the tension, the output is 12V.

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

Good morning,
for programming in LabView plates WSN, I need to have LabVIEW WirelessSensor Network Module Pioneer?
For example, I need to have input and output, can do the way is down?
regards,
Hugo

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

Hello,

 

If you want to programm WSN nodes, you need the Module NI LabVIEW Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) Pioneer. If you just want to read data from nodes, without programming them, you can just install the WSN drivers.

 

I don't understand your second question. If you need help for starting with WSN, please look here.

Hello,

 

If you just want to do that, you don't need the module.

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

So to get in an output voltage value, I'll have to do?

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

Can you tell me exactly what you need ?

 

If you want to set an ouput voltage value, it's impossible. The only outputs avaliable on this node are digital outputs. When you set it to True, the output voltage is 12V.

 

Is that what you need ?

I needed a hardware trigger voltage of 24Vdc, it is possible?

Re : Using outputs in WSN-3202

No, it's impossible. Moreover, do not think of using two outputs in series connection. Grounds are internally linked so if you do that, you will do a short.
