Digital Pneumatic Pressure Sensor for NXT (PPS35-Nx)

Hello

I try to use this sensor ;
but the driver in robotC is for PPS58 NX ;

may be an " old " driver has been done for PPS35 before ?
and could be use with the last robotC 3.54 ?

thanks

It seems to be an Analogue sensor with a linear response to pressure, so it's a matter of calibrating it once with a known pressure value and then you're good to go. You can find some details here: http://www.mindsensors.com/index.php?mo ... PAGE_id=10

Thanks

very good idea ; fine ;

and this is the answer of Mindsensor :



No special driver needed for PPS35, This is a analog sensor compatible with NXT Light Sensor.
In your program, set the sensor port to Light sensor, and use the API to read from Light sensor.

Fixed it....for some reason one of the laptops of my group had their screen size at 125% which doesn't work well with the remote screen.
