    Phidget 0/16/16 - how to get working

    I would have read the instructions if there were any, but I cannot get the Phidget 0/16/16 working. In the brief instruction sheet, it says you have to apply power to an input, but do I have to apply a power source to EACH digital input to get it working? How do I power the 16 outputs?

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but I'm a little disappointed that this unit is hardly plug and play. I get the mini LEDs built onto the board working using FS2Phidget, but how do I power an LED on the same output? And I see there's loads of 'G' connectors, but no guidance on what these are (assuming electrical Ground) and don't you just need one? There's certainly NOT one per input/output.

    And I still haven't got the LED 64 unit working Anyone who has set one up got any circuit diagrams?

    Thanks for any help

    These schematics should come in handy.

    Explain the wiring of the phidgets.

    Thanks Stef - I took a look and found some very very useful information. This has also answered several other questions, not least how to put an old computer power supply to some good use
