If you place an order with Phidgets, it's very likely you'll want a VINT Hub
Phidget to tie it all together.
Six Versatile I/O Ports
With a VINT Hub Phidget, you can interface six devices to your computer through
a single USB port. Each VINT port can perform one of four roles: Communicating
with an intelligent VINT Device, reading a 0-5V Voltage or ratiometric sensor,
acting as a digital output, or reading switches as a digital input. Each port
has a power and ground pin, so you can also use the ports to gain access to the
USB voltage supply directly.
Plug in one of our many VINT-enabled Phidgets that perform a wide variety of
functions. Control motors and LEDs, measure temperature or motion, or build a
large scale system with many inputs and outputs.
Easy to Use
VINT Devices are 'plug and program': automatically discovered by the Phidget API
with the same ease of programming you've come to expect from Phidgets. Each VINT
device has a full API with functions and events to make programming a snap.
Analog Sensor Compatible
Sometimes, you just need a few simple analog voltage sensors. Luckily, your
collection of Phidget Analog Input sensors is not obsolete; each port on the USB
VINT Hub can interface a 0-5V sensor. The VINT Port is backwards compatible with
both ratiometric and non-ratiometric Phidget analog sensors.
Digital I/O Mode
In digital output mode, a VINT port can be used to drive LEDs, relays, digital
circuits, and other simple electronics. Each port is PWM-enabled, allowing you
to dim LEDs to a specific brightness.
Wire a switch or sensor contact directly into a VINT Port, and use the Digital
Input mode to read the state of the switch.
If you need more than six inputs or outputs, you can expand by attaching a VINT
I/O module. For example, there are VINT digital output modules with 16 outputs,
allowing 96 digital outputs on a single VINT HUB Phidget!
