Packaging for shields

Hi, I've had a look around, both at Freetronics and other sites, but can't seem to find what I would think would be an obvious thing... I'm after packages, like plastic shells, to put the Eleven and/or it's shields in. Essentially a housing for the finished product. I've made a kit based on an Eleve...

Re: Multiple IRTemps sharing clock pin

Alright all sorted.

The IRTemp sensor wasn't working, so I have another now that is (borrowed albeit). Can't believe I spent so long trying to get it working when it was clearly not going to lol

I figured out the code too, my example was wrong.

Re: Multiple IRTemps sharing clock pin

I'll double check this when I get home. This has been a project that I was working on a few months ago and it stalled because I hit this problem. Originally I wasn't using 10-12 for the working sensor, I was using 11-13, and a different pin order, but I'm sure that I tested both sensors back then an...

Re: Multiple IRTemps sharing clock pin

Hi Angus,

Yeah the wiring is the same on the board as in the sketch. I've tried so many combinations of these and other pins and this is just where it ended up.

Hi, OK so pins that I have in use are: Freetronics 3-axis sensor : A3, A4, A5 Freetronics 16x2 LCD w/buttons : A0, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9 (Contrast control on D3 disabled) Freetronics IRTemp 1 : D10, D11, D12 (commented out in code below, as this is the one that works when the lines for IRTemp1 are ...

Re: Multiple IRTemps sharing clock pin

Hi, Just a few more notes about the issue above... I should mention that some of the limitation I face is that I'm also using an LCD shield, which consumes digital pins 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and analogue pin A0 I've wired up the first IRTemp sensor on pins 10, 11 and 12, and it works fine. I'm trying to ...

Re: Multiple IRTemps sharing clock pin

Hi, Sorry about the noob question on an old thread... but I'm a little confused as to how to wire up 2 IRTemp sensors to a single Freetronics Eleven main board. Is anyone able to provide a wiring example and a code example of how to do this? I've messed around for hours with many different combinati...
