Firmata Digital Output Pulse Channel¶
Digital output pulse channel on a Firmata Device.
A digital output pulse channel triggers output “pulses” on its associated pin. Whenever a pulse duration is assigned to value, MWorks sends a pulse command to the Firmata device. Upon receiving the command, the device sets the pin to high/true. Once the requested interval (as measured by the device’s onboard clock) has elapsed, the device sets the pin back to low/false.
Note: Firmata devices require pulse durations to be specified in milliseconds. MWorks converts durations assigned to value from microseconds to milliseconds before sending them to the device.
Output pin number
Variable from which to read pulse duration (in microseconds). Assigning a value to the variable causes the pulse to begin immediately.
Note: Pulse durations must be whole numbers of milliseconds.
