OWL2/BASIC Stamp to Unidata water level & SDI-12

Contents (updated 11/13/2010) We use the following BS2 subroutine to read data from the HSIO (High Speed I/O, serial data interface) of the model 6531 depth gage manufactured by Unidata of Australia. This professional (US$500) instrument uses a float and counterweight on a beaded line to measure depths of up to 49 meters with a resolution of 0.75 millimeter. Other instruments from Unidata use this same protocol. The U6531 is wired to the logger using three of the digital i/o lines. The data is returned in the word variable, result. Two or more U6531 can be chained together using the same select, clock and data lines. Here is an example with two U6531. There is a limit as to how long the cable from the logger to the SDI-12 device can be.

The old Unidata model 6509 does not respond to the fast clock signal. Volts = millimeters * 0.00512 for 6521J 1/2 meter probe. Building an Environmental Monitoring System for SDI-12 Devices. With the release of the LabVIEW SDI-12 API, LabVIEW has the ability to interface with thousands of environmental monitoring sensors that communicate via the SDI-12 protocol.

Building an Environmental Monitoring System for SDI-12 Devices

This whitepaper will discuss the specifications of the protocol and applications in which the protocol is used. We will then provide an in-depth description of the LabVIEW SDI-12 API and illustrate how to create a customizable, software-defined SDI-12 communication system. 1. Introduction. SDI-12 Sensor Engine. The SDI-12 Problem Although SDI-12 is a cryptic hardware and software protocol, it is still a widely used standard interface between environmental sensors and data loggers.

SDI-12 Sensor Engine

Until now, sensor vendors have had the difficult and costly burden of creating their own SDI-12 solutions from scratch. Because of the many eccentricities of the SDI-12 protocol, it is a difficult task to create a truly compliant SDI-12 sensor interface. The SDI-12 Sensor Translator Figure 1 - SDI12 Sensor Translator Sample Board. Vegetronix has solved the problem of interfacing sensors to the SDI-12 bus by creating a small SDI12 Sensor Translator board which contains all of the necessary functionality. Figure 2 shows a connection diagram for utilizing the SDI-12 Sensor Translator. Figure 2 - SDI12 Sensor Translator Connection Diagram. Because of its small size the sensor can often be incorporated into the sensor housing.

Nkinar - Aug 21, 2009 - 10:09 PMPost subject: Dedicated hardware RS232 to SDI-12 controller? Hello-- I've been reading the book "Principles of Electrical Measurement" by Sławomir Tumański, and on page 399, the author mentions that it is possible to create a bridge between RS232C and the SDI-12 protocol using what appears to be a specialized IC. I am wondering if such an IC is available, or if it would be possible to implement SDI-12 using the RX and TX pins of a USART shorted together. Búsqueda de productos. Búsqueda de productos.

SDI-12 Bus Interface

SDI-12 is a arcane protocol used in environmental sensing. It consists of 2 wires: data and ground and runs at 1200 baud. The bus is bidirectional, and the logger is the master, and the sensors are slave devices on the bus. It's not a very easy protocol to implement. This simple circuit interfaces a 3.3V microcontroller with a 1200 baud UART to the SDI-12 bus. SDI-12 Bus Interface Schematic Do you need help with an electronics design?
