Hello! I am trying to use a Nonin 7500 with an Arduino Due. In the Nonin manual it says that the sensor runs at 9600 baud and 2 stop bits. I would like it to only have 1 stop bit so I configured the serial in my code as such:
but it is still displaying data once every second. How do I configure the Nonin to display data continuously? Thanks in advance!
There is NO real difference for serial communications between 1 stop bit, 2 stop bits of 99 stop bits, except for how soon the next character arrives. Your change is meaningless.
If your program is displaying every second, then that may be how often a character arrives.
I have no clue what a Nonin 7500 is. Does it make a difference?
My god that is one hell of a price for what it is. It is the sort of thing you could make for £30.
It looks like it only sends data once a second, so why do you want to continuously send the same data over and over as fast as you can? Most of the time people want to limit how often something is sent.
If it's medical-related then that means 'Liability'.
But that's not ISO. "ISO doesn’t provide certification or conformity assessment. You’ll need to contact an external certification body for that." (TUV, CE, UL etc.)
To change either of those things, you need to go to the manufacturer of the Nonin 7500 with a very good and valid reason to change those things and a very, very large sum of money, I suspect. You cannot change those things by connecting it to an Arduino.
So what are those reasons? I expect the designers of the Nonin made those decisions for very good reasons. Why are their decisions wrong for your project?
