This example demonstrates the use of an M5S digital input module (M5S-BID0524B1) to detect a voltage of 24 V DC. It reads a digital input using the digitalRead function and prints the result to the Serial Monitor.

Since pinMode(INPUT_PULLUP) is used instead of pinMode(INPUT), no external pull-down resistor is required. An internal resistor of 20 kΩ pulls the input pin to 5 V in passive state. This configuration causes the input to read HIGH when the input module is OFF, and LOW when it is ON.


The circuit

  • External: M5S digital input module detecting a voltage of 24 V DC.
  • Internal: M5S digital input module connected to Arduino digital pin 2.


Characteristics of different input modules

  • M5S-BID0524B1
    M5S input Uext    -> M5S ON  -> Arduino pin voltage 0 V -> Arduino value 0 (LOW)
    M5S input passive -> M5S OFF -> Arduino pin voltage 5 V -> Arduino value 1 (HIGH)
  • M5S-BID0524A1
    M5S input GND     -> M5S ON  -> Arduino pin voltage 0 V -> Arduino value 0 (LOW)
    M5S input passive -> M5S OFF -> Arduino pin voltage 5 V -> Arduino value 1 (HIGH)


Code

void setup() {  
  Serial.begin(9600);       // start serial connection
  pinMode(2, INPUT_PULLUP); // configure pin 2 as an input and enable the internal pull-up resistor  
}

void loop() {
  int sensorVal = digitalRead(2); // read the value of pin 2 into a variable
  Serial.println(sensorVal);      // print the value to the Serial Monitor
}
