11-11-2006, 07:29 AM
I just purchased a Max1270BCNG 8 channel 12bit analog to digital converter w/ serial output.· I'm having a hard time understanding the documentation that comes with it, like how· I would set the chip up for what· I need it to do, and how to bring back the information that· I need.· I have 4 0-10VDC sensors that·I need to bring back the information to a set of variables in the program.· I'm still somewhat new at this p-basic but I have had basic, visual basic, and other programming languages in the past, as well as PLC's...· what I am having problems with is the timing graphs they give you and the format of the serial output/input I need to use.· any help would be greatly appreciated, maybe even a sample program if someone is feeling bored.· I attached a pdf of the documentation that they give you.· thanks for your help!

You can find tutorial code in the manual for the Stamp PLC:

The '1270 has come up often before in the fora. Here are a couple of threads to get you started...
