1-Chip 4-Channel PIC16F886 Data Logger

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

This project has only a few modifications from the Single Chip, Four Channel Datalogger article, so I won`t go into much detail. Below is the schematic. The changes from Dan`s datalogger are that I used the PIC16F886, which is pin-compatible with the PIC 16F876. I also used the PI`s hardware serial I/O channels (pins 17 and 18) and I added

Can indicator LED that indicates logging in progress and the log interval (pin 22). The switch sets the mode between logging and writing data over the serial port. The C data logger code is available here as is a hex file with 1 s log interval. I used the CCS compiler. This makes reading and writing program memory very straight forward with commands like write_program_eeprom( prog_mem_adr, value ) and read_program_eeprom(prog_mem_adr). The 16F886 has 8192 total program flash words. The total time of logging is determined by the delay setting at line 64 of main. c. Use a frequency counter at the indicator LED to set the desired logging interval. If you don`t add any lines to the code, you can increase the memory used for logging by setting START_ADR to the lowest open memory address. You can get this information with, e. g. , the PICKit2 programming application or whatever your favorite PIC programmer provides. Here`s the completed logger with a LM35 temperature sensor (suspended in the foreground) and a 7805 regulator (on the back left corner of the board) with a 9V battery attached.
