Instructions

Using LEDs to transmit and receive frequency data is a great way to isolate your control signals from potentially dangerous circuitry. IOptical encoders also take advantage of embedding digital data on light intensity to give information about position and speed. The Light Frequency Meter module will help you understand techniques you can use to generate and read digital information.
