We are trying to make dTIR work with EV3, downloaded the Dexter.ev3b, loaded it in Mindstorm software and programed it.
For some reason, we cannot get any data from the sensor. Is there a sample program or some instructions on how to read and store the data?
This is what I purchased:http://www.dexterindustries.com/site/?product=thermal-infrared-sensor-lego-mindstorms-nxt-and-ev3
Jim,I'l have to go back and take a look at this. It's been a long time since we worked on EV3, and the hardware and software are tricky.
One quick question: if you unplug and plug the TIR back in, does it start to give data?
Also, attached is an example program for the TIR. Which was just removed by our software for security reasons. Can you try this link: https://github.com/DexterInd/EV3_Dexter_Industries_Sensors/raw/master/EV3-TIR_Test.ev3
This worked perfectly. I there anyway I can have this data sent back to a computer so we can record it?
Thanks for all your help.
I think there is a way you can send data back; you might be able to just use EV3's write to file options though and take it off your EV3 when you're done?
I purchased the dTIR sensor for our EV3 student project, but can’t get any readings from it. I have installed the Dexter Sesnor Blocks in Labview and am running the sample app. However I only get one constant output (See photo). What is the problem here? Thanks.
The sensor port in labview also does not show any reading.
We all have the same problem…
-273 °C = 0 kelvin as a constant output from the dTIR
There is something wrong with the “driver” in EV3.
I have search for hours a solution. Didn’t find
It’s a pitty as this sensor is sold as EV3 compatible.
Please, Dexter guys, do you have a solution for us?
Yes, it;s disappointing the sensor doesn’t work. Old threads have been closed without offering a solution from Dexter. Even on Amazon.de you find Q&A which clearly stated the sensor now works on EV3. Must we return the sensor?
