Hello

can any one help

I have started to build a Reef pi, I have the timers and 10 power sockets working , the thermal probes seem OK also.

I have an ADC PI board, and would like to with PH probes (to begin with). but I have not been able to see how to use this with the Reef-pi software.

Is this compatible with the Reef Pi code (it uses 2 MCP3424 ADC 4 channel Chip)?
I am not too good when it comes to software (much better with the hardware side of the project).

My thank to any one who is willing to help.

Thank you for your help, I will get some ADS1115. The Adafruit seem a good starting point (but looking at the driver list in the Reef-Pi, I do not see anything marked ASD1115, what drive do I need to load?)

Thank you for your interest in reef-pi. Remember in marine environment, pH values are highly susceptible to aberration due to electrical interference, and galvanic isolation is a must have. atlas EZO carrier board as well as reef-pi ph board employs an extra IC for this , other than an ADC. Just to keep in mind.
Godspeed.

Yes will need more then just an ADC and probe, I have been looking at cloning Roberto Buti's PH board, with the low input current amp before the ADC.

Not seen anywhere I can get the completed PCB, or the EZ0 a much beater solution?
