# Simple demo of reading each analog input from the ADS1x15 and printing it to

# Create an ADS1115 ADC (16-bit) instance.
adc = Adafruit_ADS1x15.ADS1115()
# Or create an ADS1015 ADC (12-bit) instance.
#adc = Adafruit_ADS1x15.ADS1015()
# Note you can change the I2C address from its default (0x48), and/or the I2C
# bus by passing in these optional parameters:
#adc = Adafruit_ADS1x15.ADS1015(address=0x49, busnum=1)
# Choose a gain of 1 for reading voltages from 0 to 4.09V.
# Or pick a different gain to change the range of voltages that are read:
# - 2/3 = +/-6.144V
# - 1 = +/-4.096V
# - 2 = +/-2.048V
# - 4 = +/-1.024V
# - 8 = +/-0.512V
# - 16 = +/-0.256V
# See table 3 in the ADS1015/ADS1115 datasheet for more info on gain.

# set of allowed data rate values, see datasheet Table 9 config register
# DR bit values.
#values[i] = adc.read_adc(i, gain=GAIN, data_rate=128)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
