  • Hi there, I am not so familiar with robotic and sensing devices (my background is biology) and have a very basic question on this interesting sensor. I would like to use it to track the position of rodents running on a (80 cm long) treadmill. I need a decent temporal resolution and this is were I have a doubt. On the one hand, the datasheet says that there is a pin that provides an analog voltage proportional to the position of the detected object. But on the other hand it says that reading can occur every 100 msec. Then, what is this analog output ? A step function with each step having a 100 msec long ? There is something basic I don’t understand here and if someone could clarify I would be more than grateful. Thanks

No public wish lists :(
