I have a micro-maestro 6ch and I’m in the process of developing a simple Application; One Servo and one input channel in VB.
The idea is basically that: The servo operates a breaking pad over a turning wheel and the input channel is a snap action switch to measure/calculate the number and speed of wheel turns . Every turn of wheel will be a click in the snap action switch. Then number of clicks multiplied by the wheel diameter will allow me to calculate speed and distance.
I’m developing this application in VB for many reasons but mainly because this application is 90% UI (user interface) and VB is similar to other languages I learned when I was a developer several years ago.
At this point I can control the servo channel as I need in VB but I couldn’t deal on how to capture the information from the input channel in VB.
I want to add that I tested the input using a Maestro Control Center Script so I know the hardware a wire are ok.
All I need is a VB sample code to figure out what function to use and how to setup the parameters.
Thanks in advance.
