Reed switches, magnets, and Yocto-PWM-Rx

By martinm, in DIY and Electronics, august 02,2020.

A customer recently contacted Yoctopuce support to ask why his DIY tachometer didn't work with a Yocto-PWM-Rx. We looked into it and, to our surprise, we discovered that generating a clean PWM signal with a magnet and a reed switch was not as easy as one could think.

Using a Yocto-Watt as energy meter

By mvuilleu, in Measures and New stuff, july 24,2020.

The Yocto-Watt is a small module which is very convenient to measure by USB the voltage, the current, and the instantaneous real power of an electric circuit. As it is also able to integrate the power to compute the total energy for a given lapse of time, some users also employ it to measure the energy that a system consumes, and we have recently improved this feature.

Cloning a module configuration from a terminal

By seb, in Misc, july 17,2020.

When you work with several YoctoHubs, it's tiresome to have to configure network parameters and HTTP callbacks every time. This week, we are going to see how to copy the configuration of a YoctoHub onto another YoctoHub with the command line.

VirtualHub, Hostname and RegisterHub()

By martinm, in Programming, july 10,2020.

So... you like Yoctopuce devices a lot: you installed many of them everywhere and connected them to a few Raspberry Pi on which a VirtualHub is running. That's great, thank you for your confidence. There is a weird thing though: you cannot manage to write a Yoctopuce program able to contact two Raspberry Pi at the same time..

New features for our serial interfaces

By mvuilleu, in New stuff, july 04,2020.

Yoctopuce serial interfaces can do much more then standard USB to serial adapters. One of their features which is not well known is their ability to record a communication, including the time interval between messages. To help you take the most out of it, we have just improved the user interface of these devices.
