Materials & Circuit
Depends on the device. For example, a sonar sensor might have 3 wires: power, ground & signal. You would connect the signal wire to one of pins AN0-AN7. See the device’s datasheet for help.
//the rest of the code is identical to code for photoresistor input, except here we call it ‘sonar’
int16 sonar = 0;
set_adc_channel(1);//set the pic to read from AN1
- You can use the photoresistor tutorial code to read any sort of analog input device, as long as the device is designed so you can run a signal wire to the input pin(s).
- Remember, only the AN0-AN7 pins allow analog input, and you have to call setup_adc functions & set_adc_channel as in
photo resistor tutorial.
- Roughly, PIC
will read 0 volts as 0, and 5 volts as 255.
