pulseLo Function

Top  Previous  Next

Gets the low pulse width of a capture channel.




channelThe capture channel number, range 0 - 3.

Return Value

The integer number of counts in the most recent low pulse width on the capture channel input, or 0 if there has been no transition on the input since the last time the pulse width was read.


The capture channel must be assigned a pin using the pin property before the pulseLo function can return a valid value.


The value is in counts; use the resolution constant to get the number of counts per second. The actual pulse width (in fractional seconds) can computed as follows:


width = Cell.Capture.pulseLo(channel) / Cell.Capture.resolution;


where channel is the desired capture channel number.


Once the pulse width has been read, subsequent attempts to read the value will return 0 until a transition (low-to-high or high-to-low) occurs on the channel's input pin.


See example for the pulseHi function.
