Pointer Power/Pulley Driver Programs

for the Original CBL

The programs on this page also work with the CBL2 and the LabPro, but they are sometimes slower and do not include features available with those interfaces.


 

Description

TI-73

TI-83, TI-83 plus (including the "Silver Edition") and TI-84

PointCBL-- All 11 of the programs below grouped into one file.

POINTCBL.8XG

POIPIV -- Pivots the pointer by an angle, A, at angular speed, U
POIPIVF -- Pivots the pointer for time, T, at angular speed, U
POIPIVW -- Continuously monitors input channel 1 and pivots the pointer at angular speed, U, while calculator function Y9 is not zero
POISWF -- Turns on a 12-V output for time, T
READ1 -- Measures the sensor value at analog Channel 1, and stores the result as "E"
READ2 -- Measures and records the sensor value at analog Channel 2, and stores the result as "F"
READ3 -- Measures and records the sensor value at analog Channel 3, and stores the result as "G"
LPOI-- A list of values generated by POISETUP, which specifies the pointer characteristics
POIPUT -- Rotates a supplementary servo motor to position, A
POISETUP -- Tests the pointer and records step size, default speed and maximum speed.
DCUINIT -- A utility program developed by Vernier Software (and distributed with their permission) which verifies correct communications between the calculator and the CBL.
