I have been using Accelerometer 2.0 bricklet and now I want to build a small remote node for more testing and instead of designing my own KX122 breakout board I would like to reuse Accel 2.0 bricklet. So, as my master I would be using ESP32 board and via short cable connect to the bricklet which would be mounted on the equipment.

Could someone guide my on what should I be including in my ESP32 firmware in order to talk to accelerometer 2.0 bricklet?

Thank you

General Discussion / Quadrature encoder Bricklet
« on: September 26, 2018, 16:35:51 »

I would like to ask if there is a plan to make a quadrature encoder bricklet?

Since, we have a many bricklets that could be used for motion control or any industrial automations. But I keep missing quadrature encoder bricklet that could host encoders like AMT102.

I currently tried using IO bricklets and tie it to interrupts but for higher precision it's not enough.


General Discussion / RedBrick keeps resetting BrickViewer
« on: August 12, 2018, 03:19:14 »

I have downloaded the latest RED brick image and Brick Viewer.
Got RED image on a 8GB SD card.

RED Brick keeps resetting on a viewer, I can't connect to it properly and upload any programs, because it keeps resetting before I am able to finish the upload.

And if I try to run a python example just to read linear pot values most of the times I get error
Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/soso/Projects/MotionControl/env/lib/python3.5/site-packages/tinkerforge/", line 1164, in send_request
    response = device.response_queue.get(True, self.timeout)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.5/", line 172, in get
    raise Empty

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 28, in <module>
  File "/home/soso/Projects/MotionControl/env/lib/python3.5/site-packages/tinkerforge/", line 127, in set_position_callback_period
    self.ipcon.send_request(self, BrickletLinearPoti.FUNCTION_SET_POSITION_CALLBACK_PERIOD, (period,), 'I', '')
  File "/home/soso/Projects/MotionControl/env/lib/python3.5/site-packages/tinkerforge/", line 1173, in send_request
    raise Error(Error.TIMEOUT, msg)
tinkerforge.ip_connection.Error: Did not receive response for function 3 in time (-1)

And sometimes it just works. When I connect via USB to Master Brick, I never have any issues by accessing bricklets etc.

I am running ubuntu 16.04.

Could anyone help me identify and fix the problem?
