cannot transfer the data from Arduino to Excel by PLX DAQ (hijack)

Hey Guys,

Please Help

can someone tell me how i do the PLX-DAQ with this Code:??? Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaese

/* FSR testing sketch.

Connect one end of FSR to power, the other end to Analog 0.
Then connect one end of a 10K resistor from Analog 0 to ground

For more information see FSR Sensor tutorial */

int fsrPin = 0; // the FSR and 10K pulldown are connected to a0
int fsrReading; // the analog reading from the FSR resistor divider
int fsrVoltage; // the analog reading converted to voltage
unsigned long fsrResistance; // The voltage converted to resistance, can be very big so make “long”
unsigned long fsrConductance;
long fsrForce; // Finally, the resistance converted to force

void setup(void) {
Serial.begin(9600); // We’ll send debugging information via the Serial monitor

void loop(void) {
fsrReading = analogRead(fsrPin);
Serial.print("Analog reading = ");

// analog voltage reading ranges from about 0 to 1023 which maps to 0V to 5V (= 5000mV)
fsrVoltage = map(fsrReading, 0, 1023, 0, 5000);
Serial.print("Voltage reading in mV = ");

if (fsrVoltage == 0) {
Serial.println(“No pressure”);
} else {
// The voltage = Vcc * R / (R + FSR) where R = 10K and Vcc = 5V
// so FSR = ((Vcc - V) * R) / V yay math!
fsrResistance = 5000 - fsrVoltage; // fsrVoltage is in millivolts so 5V = 5000mV
fsrResistance *= 10000; // 10K resistor
fsrResistance /= fsrVoltage;
Serial.print("FSR resistance in ohms = ");

fsrConductance = 1000000; // we measure in micromhos so
fsrConductance /= fsrResistance;
Serial.print("Conductance in microMhos: ");

// Use the two FSR guide graphs to approximate the force
if (fsrConductance <= 1000) {
fsrForce = fsrConductance / 80;
Serial.print("Force in Newtons: ");
} else {
fsrForce = fsrConductance - 1000;
fsrForce /= 30;
Serial.print(“Force in Newtons: “);

What part of those Serial.print() statements tell PLX-DAQ that it is supposed to do something?

You are sending data that would look like, and is, irrelevant junk to Excel. Just send the values, separated by commas, with a lineshift after the last one in the loop.


I assume you haven't checked the magnum opus on PLXv2 in the forum. Youwill probably need to send Excel commands for Time, or some sort of count, otherwise I think you are missing the value of PLX.
