AD1216 Analog to Digital Conversion Command Set

WARNING: A/D Inputs can accept a voltage from 0 to 5VDC. You should NEVER exceed this voltage range. Negative voltages will damage the A/D inputs. Power the controller BEFORE applying voltages to these inputs. Applying voltages to these inputs while the controller is powered down may result in permanent damage to the CPU.

Base Station Software

The AD1216 Command Set is used to acquire up to 16-Channels of 8-Bit or 12- Bit Analog to Digital Conversion using a single query to the device.

In order to communicate with the AD1216 device, run the NCD Base Station software.

  • Connect controller to computer using your favorite interface technology.
  • Run the NCD Base Station software.
  • Select the appropriate COM port or IP Address and click OK.

When the dialog box appears, choose ‘UXP AD1216 Analog to Digital Conversion Command Set’ as shown in the screen shot below.

Reading Analog Inputs with Base Station Software

  1. Check this box to monitor the first analog inputs.
  2. Check this box to monitor the second group of 16-analog inputs (on devices with 32 or more channels).
  3. Check this box to monitor the third group of 16-analog inputs (on devices with 48 channels).
  4. Read 8-Bit Resolution 1-Channel at a time (this is a little slow).
  5. Dumps 16 Raw Bytes of Data from the controller to the software without error checking (very fast, but no error checking in the communication protocol).
  6. Dumps 32-Bytes of Data with a Header Byte and a Checksum to ensure error free communications.
  7. Read 12-Bit Resolution 1-Channel at a time (this is twice as fast as 8-Bit Resolution).
  8. Dumps 32 Raw Bytes of Data from the controller to the software without error checking (very fast, but no error checking in communication protocol).
  9. Dumps 32-Bytes of Data with a Header Byte and Checksum to ensure error free communications.
  10. Check this box to enable constant monitoring of inputs. Analog inputs will constantly change but the user interface will “freeze” until this option is unchecked.
  11. Communication Details. The portion of the interface is visible when the MORE option is selected in section L of diagram.
  12. MORE or LESS. More option expands the window to include the communication details of the device in section K of diagram. Less option shrinks the window to exclude section K.

AD1216 Command Set

The AD1216 Command Set is used to acquire up to 16-Channels of 8-Bit or 12-Bit Analog to Digital Conversion using a single query to the device. This command set is compatible with all ProXR controllers with a UXP Expansion Port. This command set may also be used with part numbers that contain AD1216, AD1232, and AD1248.

Analog to Digital Conversion is the process of converting a voltage to a numeric value. This is useful for reading many kinds of sensors. A/D Conversion Commands convert a voltage from 0 to 5VDC to a 8-Bit Number from 0-255 or a 12-Bit Number from 0-4095.

If you request a 12-Bit Value, the controller will send 2 bytes of data, which must be mathematically processed to reconstruct the 12-Bit value. The formula for converting a 12-Bit Number to a Analog value is: Value = (MSB*256)+LSB

LSB is the Least Significant Byte and MSB is the Most Significant Byte.

This command set remains unchanged from previous versions of ProXR Standard controllers.

Note: While a controller may have 48 Analog Input Channels, each Channel Capable of Reading Voltages from 0 to 5VDC, every channel shares a common ground, as there is no isolation between channels.

Troubleshooting

Run NCD Base Station Software to diagnose controller problems. Choose “Quality Control and Diagnostic: AD1216”.

If you experience problems with any AD1216 series device, you may use this diagnostics interface to help determine if there is a hardware problem. Many portions of this user interface will be hidden. In order to view all elements, it is necessary to check the number of analog devices you will be testing (lower left corner of the interface).

Next, you MUST test the Up/Down Jumpers BEFORE you are allowed to test individual input channels.

Once the Up/Down test has passed (by moving the up/down jumper into each position), move the Up/Down jumper to the UP position. Next, connect each analog input channel to ground (individually) using a jumper wire. It may take 1-5 seconds to test each input. An audible tone will indicate a “PASS” condition and you may move to the next analog input.

Test each analog input individually to pass the testing procedure.

If you need to test another controller, click the “Clear Test” button.
