TinyIOx

Postby Marcdekika » Tue Nov 01, 2016 12:59 pm

Hi Jean,

I have purchased a TinyIOx, just to have more analog inputs to show extra temperatures on the dashboard of Tunerstudio.
It is installed with the CAN bus. When I launch "port scanner V1.2" then it finds my megasquirt and the TinyIOx, I can flash in the latest firmware. So I have communication.
Tunerstudio is modified, so I have the device choise between my car project and TinyIOx (CAN4).
In TinyIOx setup, in "Base I/O settings" I have set ADC to enable.
in "ADC channels activation" I have set ADC channel 2 to active
I have put a adjustable 0 to 5 volt signal at AD1 for testing (it comes from the power supply, so GND's are connected)
In Tunerstudio I have created a extra gauche where controller is set to "CAN4" and output channel to AD1.
And now, when I change my signal, nothing happens. The new gauche does not move and when I go to "CAN4, Data, Real time display" all the values stay at 100.

What am I doing wrong?
Best regards
Marc

Marc,

You will need to post a backup of your project because I need to see all your settings. This is under File/Vehicle Projects menu. Make sure to unclick the boxes on the right in the dialog window so that the datalogs and restore points are not included: this should make the backup file a reasonable size.

Hi Jean,

I found the problem.
As outputchannel I have to take GPIOADCx instead of ADCx. Now it is working.
Thanks for the effort.
Next week I will order 2 more TinyIOx.

Hi Jean,

I want to order 2 more TinyIOx boards, but I see that sale is suspended.
Can I still order them?

One more question: is there a terminator resistor for the CAN bus on the board? If yes, which one is that?

Marc,

The ordering button should be back online sometime this week. I'll post here when it happens.

And yes there is a terminating resistor and that's what the DIP switch is for. The switch enables (switch on) and disables (switch off) the resistor so you can have multiple boards on the bus.

The TinyIOx ordering is back online: http://www.jbperf.com/io_extender/tinyIOx.html#Buy.

If you were considering buying a TinyIOx in the near (or not so near) future, you may want to do so now while it is available. The current batch is limited and I'm not sure when the next one will be available.

Two orders for TinyIOs heading your way, Jean. Hope you can keep your very useful product line open.

Hi Jean,

Hope you are doing well!

After an unexpected break, I am working again on this project.
Everything is working, except getting decent values on the gauges.
In tools I have filled in the calibration tables for CAN 4, in "Led displays" "Sensor calibration" I have connected the calibration tables to the sensors.
Probably I am using the wrong gauges. Which gauges output channel should I use to have a "calibrated" gauge? There are so many channels that I do not see the wood for the trees.

Thx
Marc

Marc,

In the current firmware, the calibration tables are only used to display values on the LED displays; that's why they are located in that specific dialog window. You can't get the calibrated values directly in the gauges in TunerStudio.

You can still get calibrated values in TunerStudio but you will need to either use a custom.ini file or use the channel editor and wizard: http://www.tunerstudio.com/index.php/tu ... nel-wizard.

Hi Jean,

Back again with another question.

Is it possible to put the newly generated channel (by the custom channel wizard) back on the CAN bus, so I can put it on an external display?

Thx,

Marc

Marc,

The generated channels only exist inside TunerStudio on the PC. The TinyIOx has no knowledge of it whatsoever so it cannot put it on the CAN bus.
