Module Sample

This sample demonstrates measuring analog inputs from modules.

To run the sample:

  1. Copy the sample code to a folder on the Raspberry Pi.

  2. Open terminal, and then go to the folder you copied the sample.

  3. Run the sample with the following command:


Sample Code
#!/usr/bin/env python3

#This sample demonstrates measuring analog inputs from modules.
#Install Modular HAT library with "pip3 install turta-modularhat"

#Raspberry Pi Configuration
# - You should enable SPI and I2C from the Raspberry Pi's configuration.
# To do so, type 'sudo raspi-config' to the terminal, then go to 'Interfacing Options' and enable both SPI and I2C.

from time import sleep
from turta_protohat import Turta_Analog

analog = Turta_Analog.ADC()

    while True:
        #Read analog input on module 1
        a1 =

        #Read analog input on module 2
        a2 =

        #Read board temperature
        board_temp_c = analog.read_temperature()
        board_temp_f = analog.read_temperature(True)

        #Print the readings
        print("Module 1 Analog.: " + str(a1))
        print("Module 2 Analog.: " + str(a2))
        print("Board Temp......: " + str(round(board_temp_c, 1)) + "C" + \
              " / " + str(round(board_temp_f, 1)) + "F")


#Exit on CTRL+C
except KeyboardInterrupt:


When you run the sample, it prints analog readings from all analog inputs. The example output should be like this:

Module 1 Analog.: 0
Module 2 Analog.: 0
Board Temp......: 0C / 0F

To stop the Python script, just press CTRL + C.
