Solid State Relays, or SSRs, are devices designed to operate like standard relays but without mechanical motion. By simply providing a small voltage to the control side of the circuit, you can open or close a higher powered circuit on the load side.
The 4-20mASensors can be connected to and powered by the provided terminals on the 4-20mA Adapter board. The 1132 will measure the current passing through the attached sensor and convert it to a voltage, where it can be displayed as a SensorValue by a Phidget Interface board.
The 1142 Light sensor can measure ambient light up to 1000 lux (roughly equivalent to the typical lighting in a studio, or the sky on an overcast day). Each sensor has been individually calibrated, and a label has been applied to the back of the board with a calibration value which can be used in your calculations to increase measurement accuracy.
The 1143 Light sensor can measure ambient light up to 70 kilolux (roughly equivalent to the brightness of direct sunlight). Each sensor has been individually calibrated, and a label has been applied to the back of the board with a calibration value which can be used in your calculations to increase measurement accuracy. The sensor's output is logarithmic,...
The 1054 - PhidgetFrequencyCounter is designed to count events from an analog signal over time and calculate a frequency from it. The product can count a logic level or signal centered around zero volts. Signals with a different ground can be counted, provided they are within the common mode range (+-10V).
The PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/8 provides Small Signal Relays with 8 Relay Outputs, rated at 250VAC, or 2 Amps, for a maximum of 60 Watts. While typical mechanical relay boards are unable to switch signals due to an oxide buildup on the contacts, the 1017 excels at switching both signals and low-power applications.
The PhidgetSBC3 is a Single Board Computer with an integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8. At its most basic, it can be thought of as a Phidget that you connect using a network cable instead of USB. The PhidgetSBC3 also provides six high-speed ports that allow you to use normal USB Phidgets over its network connection. This can extend the effective range of...
The PhidgetAnalog 4-Output Produces a voltage over -10V to +10V. This voltage will be asserted up to +-20mA. An error will be reported when this current is exceeded, and the voltage the customer is getting is no longer accurate. The voltage is produced with 12 bit resolution (4.8mV).
The PhidgetEncoder Highspeed 4-Input can be used with a wide assortment of mechanical and optical encoders. The encoder should be of quadrature output type, indicating that there will be two quadrature output channels (usually labeled A and B) and an optional third output channel to signal when the index pin (a reference point for zero position or a...
Digital Inputs The Digital Inputs are activated by an external voltage source, triggering on a wide voltage range - 4 to 30VDC. They provide built-in filtering, to eliminate false triggering from electrical noise. They can be used to convey the state of on/off devices, such as push buttons, limit switches, relays.
