readings number format problem

Post by stuck » Mon Oct 23, 2006 4:17 am

After i get readings from my ADC16, i see that value are very huge, e.g., i opened channel 1,2,3,4, and the readings i got are pretty big , more than 10 million;

i am using 16 bit resolution, so the maximum should be 65536. why my readings are too big? In other words, what i should do if the readings exceed maximum? is this just simply an machine fault? But if i use pico log, i can get proper readings.

please help

This sounds like a programming error.

It could be a number of different things. Check your variable declarations and look for any accidental maths in your arrays.

Further information is required if you need further help.
