Tips for troubleshooting Sensor Toolbox comm issues

Keywords:interface  Sensor Toolbox  Xtrinsic sensors  hardware  LED 

The Sensor Toolbox provides an interface for evaluation of many Xtrinsic sensors. It is designed to bring up the appropriate user interface for the sensor present in the hardware. The software component of the Sensor Toolbox recognises the hardware configuration where it is deployed and adapts the user interface to the appropriate sensor device. However, some users may encounter a situation where the software fails to recognise the hardware and the toolbox becomes unusable for various reasons.

This application note provides some background and guides you through the check of the FTDI driver, the hardware and the software components of the Sensor Toolbox to remedy any underlying incompatibilities. It also includes a fix for a known defect in the Sensor Toolbox user interface relating to the LED display toggles for freefall / motion detection.
