» Ev v30 04: Hall effect sensor

This example shows how to read the hall efect sensor in SOCKET_3. The sensor can be also connected in: SOCKET_1, SOCKET_2, SOCKET_3 and SOCKET_4

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x Events Board v30
1 x Hall Effect sensor

Notes

- This example is valid only for Waspmote v15
