DrDaq and linux questions.

Post by pluggy » Sat Apr 04, 2009 8:18 pm

This is a mixed bag and probably needs asking in different areas of the board.

I'm considering buying a Drdaq for a project.

Question 1, I've downloaded the Linux drivers for a peruse, and have a question relating to the picoread program. Can it be called directly from bash ad hoc without loading the driver ?

Question 2, if I fed 5v 50 Hz AC to the voltage sensor would the DrDaq be able to give meaningful voltage measurements (rms would be nice) and would picoread be able to pull the values for manipulation in Bash and graphing via third party software ?

Thanks in Advance

Hi in terms of the Linux question I do not know enough about Linux to be able to answer that however, in terms of measuring a 50Hz signal the DrDaq will be quick enough to sample it.

Kind regards
