Hey Everyone!

This question comes up all too often here at Trossen Robotics, so we thought we should post about it and start pointing people here.

What I'm posting here is the general "what do I need to know to get started info." If you have any more information you would like to add or have examples of connecting Phidget Analog Sensors to specific boards, please feel free to reply to this post, as we are Sticking this thread so that it stays on top at all times.

DISCLAIMER
Obviously connecting to third party devices voids your Phidget warranty and Trossen Robotics nor Phidgets assumes no liability if you screw something up.


Ok, now that we have that out of the way.

Connecting your Phidget analog sensors to third party devices is easy! The main thing to remember is to not exceed 5V when supplying power to the sensors else you'll fry your Phidget and nobody likes a crispy Phidget:cool:

Simply put, all you need to know after that is the pinout:
