» 4-20 mA 04: Frame class utility

This sketch shows how to use the most important features of the 4-20mA current loop board in Waspmote in combination with the frame class.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x 4-20mA Board

Notes

- Don't use the 12V output to supply industrial devices, only for 4-20mA sensors.
- Be sure that your sensor is compatible with the 4-20mA board specifications.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
