Standard Ultra Sonic Sensor


This is my second post and now I need a little help with the ultra sonic sensor. I looked at the video from dj but I couldn't see the actual way to hook up the wires to the sensor. Would it be possible for someone to describe in detail the best way to do it. Some good images would be great. Thanking you guys in advance. Jay

Excellent thank you, then do I assume the leads are attached to the board as normal? It may seem a daft question but in my experience its best to ask
United Kingdom
Yes. And then add the control in ARC, set the ping & echo ports and viola.

Every control has a question mark next to the close X button. Pressing the question mark button will direct you to a tutorial page for the respective control.
