Pico custom probe fabricating

Postby JOHNNY5 » Wed May 28, 2014 4:44 pm

Hello everyone I am a new member and this is my first post, not sure if this is the ideal board for this question but any help or redirection would help.
I just bought a pico automotive starter kit and quickly fell in love with its ability and versatility and want to start by making my own pressure transducer and want to convert the millivolt output of my sensor and convert it to psi on the screen. Is there an example video or a step by step explanation of the setup and menu options that can give me a quick reference? For example my sensor has a 50 PSI rise for every 36 millivolts. Where and how can I set that up including naming the probe?

Sorry that is all Chinese to me.
Was wondering if "on screen" pictures or video with guide are available of what items to click on and where to put my values in.

Hi there

All you should do is to import the file that Robski have built special for you.

But since you have no idea where to look for that custom file where its possible to edit it - have I taken a screenshot of the Custom Probe Wizard to help you. :wink:

Regards
Kim

I viewed the file through my mobile device and something is not right. Reads like some software language, DOS maybe. I'll try importing the file from my PC.
As to the picture you sent of the menu, I was there already and using the wizard but still not familiar with where to put my sensors values. I'll try opening that file and hopefully it's there. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply, every little bit of feedback helps.

Hello Robski and thank you for taking the time to send that file. Unfortunatly it appears that the file did not decode properly and was hoping you can try and resend it. In the mean time I will try on yet another PC.Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately it appears that the file did not decode properly

How do you mean ?

All you had to do was import it from where ever you saved it into your custom probes.
