Reading Data Types from a file

Hi everyone!

i am currently doing a project with my manager and we need some help with some code.

The end game is too display frequency values and its mmH2O that its closest too.

i need some help getting the data from an excel file and then displaying that data on an LCD.


The code

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

int ontime;
int offtime;

float freq;
float period;
float h20;

const int outputPin = 13;

int rs = 3;
int eE = 4;
int d4 = 5;
int d5 = 6;
int d6 = 7;
int d7 = 8;
LiquidCrystal lcd(rs,eE,d4,d5,d6,d7);

void setup()
{
pinMode(outputPin,INPUT);
lcd.begin(16,2);
lcd.clear();
lcd.print("Freq: ");
lcd.setCursor(0,1);
lcd.print("H2O: ");
}
void loop()
{
ontime = pulseIn(outputPin,HIGH);
offtime = pulseIn(outputPin,LOW);
period = ontime + offtime;
freq = 1000000.0/period;
h20 = (freq-44.712)/-0.0285493333;
if (period == 0)
{
freq = 0;
}
if(freq<1000)
{
lcd.setCursor(5,0);
lcd.print(freq);
lcd.print(“Hz”);
}
lcd.setCursor(4,1);
lcd.print(h20);
lcd.print(“mm”);
delay(1000);
}

Please ask any questions you have!

Sorry if i am not very clear with what i need.

How do you plan to get the excel data to the arduino? Sending it through serial? I would suggest to study Serial Input Basics to handle this + a bit of vba programming on excel side.

Why don’t you do the math directly in excel rather than sending all the data points ?

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>
int ontime;
int offtime;


float freq;
float period;
float h20;


const int outputPin = 13;


int rs = 3;
int eE = 4;
int d4 = 5;
int d5 = 6;
int d6 = 7;
int d7 = 8;
LiquidCrystal lcd(rs, eE, d4, d5, d6, d7);


void setup() {
  pinMode(outputPin, INPUT);
  lcd.begin(16, 2);
  lcd.clear();
  lcd.print("Freq: ");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("H2O: ");
}


void loop() {
  ontime = pulseIn(outputPin, HIGH);
  offtime = pulseIn(outputPin, LOW);
  period = ontime + offtime;
  freq = 1000000.0 / period;
  h20 = (freq - 44.712) / -0.0285493333;
  if (period == 0)
  {
    freq = 0;
  }
  if (freq < 1000)
  {
    lcd.setCursor(5, 0);
    lcd.print(freq);
    lcd.print("Hz");
  }
  lcd.setCursor(4, 1);
  lcd.print(h20);
  lcd.print("mm");
  delay(1000);
}

It’s not an arduino question, Google something like « VBA programming Serial Ports »

(Some info to get you started here)

Like this?

Hi, Thanks very much for doing that and i appreciate it.

How would i implement this into the code for it to be displayed on the LCD, and then show its mmH2O that it is equivelent to?

int mmh2o;
  for (mmh2o = 1; mmh2o < 101; mmh20++)
  {
    if (Table[mmh2o-1] > freq)
      break;  // Stop looking when we find the highest value less than the frequency
  }
