I do possess several phidget sensors, which I would like to use with my Arduino Diecimila. Eg.: I would like to get analog readouts from 4 magnetic sensors (a linear hall sensor) at the same time. Any tipps for a beginner?
I've not worked with them myself, but it seems that I've read about others using them before: http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aarduino.cc+phidget&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
Depends on which Phidgets you have, but yes, it is pretty straightforward.
That three pin connector is a standard pinout. Red = VCC, Black = Ground, White = Sensor.
Connect the Red and Black as per the norm, and connect white to your analog in. Read as normal.
