Classes

Ina219

Typedefs

onCompleteCallback : function

Callback for standard oncomplete

onHaveValueCallback : function

Callback for returning a single value

Ina219

Kind: global class

new Ina219()

Ina219 is the main class exported from the Node module

ina219.init(address, device)

Called to initilize the INA219 board, you should calibrate it after this.

Kind: instance method of Ina219

Param Type Description
address string Address you want to use. Defaults to INA219_ADDRESS
device string Device to connect to. Defaults to "/dev/i2c-1"

ina219.enableLogging(enable)

Enabled debug logging to console.log

Kind: instance method of Ina219

Param Type Description
enable bool True to enable, False to disable

ina219.writeRegister(register, value, callback)

Reads a 16 bit value over I2C

Kind: instance method of Ina219

Param Type Description
register integer Register to read from (One of INA219_REG_*)
value integer Value to be written
callback writeRegisterCallback Callback to be invoked when complete

ina219.readRegister(register, callback)

Reads a 16 bit value over I2C

Kind: instance method of Ina219

Param Type Description
register integer Register to read from (One of INA219_REG_*)
callback onHaveValueCallback Callback to be invoked when complete

ina219.calibrate32V1A(callback)

Configures to INA219 to be able to measure up to 32V and 1A of current. Each unit of current corresponds to 40uA, and each unit of power corresponds to 800mW. Counter overflow occurs at 1.3A. Note: These calculations assume a 0.1 ohm resistor is present

Param Type Description
callback onCompleteCallback Callback to be invoked when complete

ina219.log(s)

Logs a string to the console if logging enabled

Kind: instance method of Ina219

Param Type Description
s string String to log
