Library Description

Library performs the communication with the device via uart interface by sending commands and checking response from the device to the host. Commands perform writting to the registers, reading from the registers (data can be 8bit, 16bit, or 32bit), calibration, writting to the EEPROM and reading from the EEPROM. By using functions for reading user can read measurements that include voltage RMS, current RMS, power data (active, reactive, apparent) and many other things. For more details check documentation.

Key functions:

  • T_PWRMETER_RETVAL pwrmeter_readRegBytes( uint16_t regAddr, uint8_t nBytes, uint8_t *dataOut ) - Function reads data bytes from registers.
  • T_PWRMETER_RETVAL pwrmeter_writeRegWORD( uint16_t registerAddr, uint16_t dataIn ) - Function writes 16-bit data to the register.
  • T_PWRMETER_RETVAL pwrmeter_sendCommand( uint8_t commandByte ) - Function sends and performs a determined command.

Example description

The application is composed of three sections :

  • System Initialization - Initializes peripherals and pins.
  • Application Initialization - Initializes UART interface, puts output of regulator in active state and configures gain channel and uart baud rate.
  • Application Task - (code snippet) - Reads voltage, current and power measurements from data registers, converts this values to determined units and all results on uart terminal. Repeats operation every second.

Additional Functions :

  • void checkResponse() - Checks response from the device to the host and logs message if error occurred.
  • void floatConv() - Makes the float values be rounded to two decimal places.

  • Conversions
  • UART

Additional notes and information

Depending on the development board you are using, you may need USB UART clickUSB UART 2 click or RS232 click to connect to your PC, for development systems with no UART to USB interface available on the board. The terminal available in all MikroElektronika compilers, or any other terminal application of your choice, can be used to read the message.

AC Current click

6

AC Current click can measure alternating currents up to 30A and it features the MCP3201 ADC (analog to digital) converter and the MCP607 CMOS Op Amp, both from Microchip. The click is designed to run on either 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target MCU over an SPI interface, and the AN pin on the mikroBUS line.

10DOF Click Library

3

10DOF click board carries two modules from Bosch: BNO055, a 9-axis absolute orientation sensor and BMP180, a digital pressure sensor. 10DOF click communicates with the target board MCU through the mikroBUS I2C interface (SCL, SDA), with additional functionality provided by INT and RST pins. Designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
