Click board current loop example
This folder contains the source files for the demonstration project on current loop using Click boards "4-20 mA T click board" and "4-20 mA R click board".
The project shows how to configure current loop between two standalone devices (e.g. Raspberry Pi) with transmitter and receiver connected by pair of wires.
- REXYGEN Runtime Core must be installed and running on both target devices (e.g. Raspberry Pi).
- SPI bus must be enabled and available on both target devices (e.g. /dev/spidev0.0).
- Click boards installed on target devices (e.g. Pi click shield for Raspberry Pi or directly to SPI pins)
- The wiring between transmiter and receiver (current loop).
Running the example (same for both devices)##
- The *exec.mdl file is the project main file.
- Open it with REXYGEN Studio.
- Specify the SPI bus by the "p0" parameter of the REXLANG function block.
- Compile and download corresponding project to the target device according to the installed click board.
- Setup desired current by "CNR_current" in "4_20mA_T_click_task" (transmitter) and see the output of "LIN" block in "4_20mA_R_click_task" (receiver).
- Press F1 for help on the selected function block in the REXYGEN Studio.
