I am very new to using Arduino and my question is whether or not the Arduino Uno is capable of interfacing with this probe or if I should look for a different sensor or board.
I currently am using an Arduino Uno Rev3 for a control box. This box will take inputs from a probe and then use this value to spin a stepper motor either CW or CCW to bring the machine to ‘zero’. I have the motor spinning as desired, but I’m unsure about a certain probe I am looking to order.
The probe I’m looking at has analogue outputs that is +/- 5 volts or 0-10 volts DC over the stroke range. I have attached a file that has the data sheet for the probe I am looking at. It is the OD5. I was unable to find whether or not the inputs for the Arduino board were capable of handling these outputs.
