API

Every function of the C/C++ bindings returns an integer which describes an error code. Data returned from the device, when a getter is called, is handled via output parameters. These parameters are labeled with the ret_ prefix.

Possible error codes are:

  • E_OK = 0
  • E_TIMEOUT = -1
  • E_NO_STREAM_SOCKET = -2
  • E_HOSTNAME_INVALID = -3
  • E_NO_CONNECT = -4
  • E_NO_THREAD = -5
  • E_NOT_ADDED = -6 (unused since C/C++ bindings version 2.0.0)
  • E_ALREADY_CONNECTED = -7
  • E_NOT_CONNECTED = -8
  • E_INVALID_PARAMETER = -9
  • E_NOT_SUPPORTED = -10
  • E_UNKNOWN_ERROR_CODE = -11
  • E_STREAM_OUT_OF_SYNC = -12
  • E_INVALID_UID = -13
  • E_NON_ASCII_CHAR_IN_SECRET = -14

as defined in ip_connection.h.

All functions listed below are thread-safe.

Basic Functions

void barometer_v2_create(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, const char *uid, IPConnection *ipcon)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • uid – Type: const char *
  • ipcon – Type: IPConnection *

Creates the device object barometer_v2 with the unique device ID uid and adds it to the IPConnection ipcon:

BarometerV2 barometer_v2;
barometer_v2_create(&barometer_v2, "YOUR_DEVICE_UID", &ipcon);

This device object can be used after the IP connection has been connected (see examples above).

void barometer_v2_destroy(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *

Removes the device object barometer_v2 from its IPConnection and destroys it. The device object cannot be used anymore afterwards.

int barometer_v2_get_air_pressure(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t *ret_air_pressure)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [260000 to 1260000]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the measured air pressure.

If you want to get the value periodically, it is recommended to use the BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_AIR_PRESSURE callback. You can set the callback configuration with barometer_v2_set_air_pressure_callback_configuration().

int barometer_v2_get_altitude(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t *ret_altitude)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_altitude – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1 mm, Range: [-231 to 231 - 1]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the relative altitude of the air pressure sensor. The value is calculated based on the difference between the current air pressure and the reference air pressure that can be set with barometer_v2_set_reference_air_pressure().

If you want to get the value periodically, it is recommended to use the BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_ALTITUDE callback. You can set the callback configuration with barometer_v2_set_altitude_callback_configuration().

int barometer_v2_get_temperature(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t *ret_temperature)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_temperature – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/100 °C, Range: [-4000 to 8500]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the temperature of the air pressure sensor.

This temperature is used internally for temperature compensation of the air pressure measurement. It is not as accurate as the temperature measured by the Temperature Bricklet 2.0 or the Temperature IR Bricklet 2.0.

If you want to get the value periodically, it is recommended to use the BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_TEMPERATURE callback. You can set the callback configuration with barometer_v2_set_temperature_callback_configuration().

int barometer_v2_set_moving_average_configuration(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint16_t moving_average_length_air_pressure, uint16_t moving_average_length_temperature)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • moving_average_length_air_pressure – Type: uint16_t, Range: [1 to 1000], Default: 100
  • moving_average_length_temperature – Type: uint16_t, Range: [1 to 1000], Default: 100
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Sets the length of a moving averaging for the air pressure and temperature measurements.

Setting the length to 1 will turn the averaging off. With less averaging, there is more noise on the data.

If you want to do long term measurements the longest moving average will give the cleanest results.

int barometer_v2_get_moving_average_configuration(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint16_t *ret_moving_average_length_air_pressure, uint16_t *ret_moving_average_length_temperature)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_moving_average_length_air_pressure – Type: uint16_t, Range: [1 to 1000], Default: 100
  • ret_moving_average_length_temperature – Type: uint16_t, Range: [1 to 1000], Default: 100
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the moving average configuration as set by barometer_v2_set_moving_average_configuration().

int barometer_v2_set_reference_air_pressure(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t air_pressure)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [0, 260000 to 1260000], Default: 1013250
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Sets the reference air pressure for the altitude calculation. Setting the reference to the current air pressure results in a calculated altitude of 0mm. Passing 0 is a shortcut for passing the current air pressure as reference.

Well known reference values are the Q codes QNH and QFE used in aviation.

int barometer_v2_get_reference_air_pressure(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t *ret_air_pressure)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [260000 to 1260000], Default: 1013250
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Advanced Functions

int barometer_v2_set_calibration(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t measured_air_pressure, int32_t actual_air_pressure)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • measured_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [0, 260000 to 1260000]
  • actual_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [0, 260000 to 1260000]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Sets the one point calibration (OPC) values for the air pressure measurement.

Before the Bricklet can be calibrated any previous calibration has to be removed by setting measured air pressure and actual air pressure to 0.

Then the current air pressure has to be measured using the Bricklet (measured air pressure) and with an accurate reference barometer (actual air pressure) at the same time and passed to this function.

After proper calibration the air pressure measurement can achieve an accuracy up to 0.2 hPa.

The calibration is saved in the EEPROM of the Bricklet and only needs to be configured once.

int barometer_v2_get_calibration(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, int32_t *ret_measured_air_pressure, int32_t *ret_actual_air_pressure)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_measured_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [0, 260000 to 1260000]
  • ret_actual_air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [0, 260000 to 1260000]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the air pressure one point calibration values as set by barometer_v2_set_calibration().

int barometer_v2_set_sensor_configuration(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint8_t data_rate, uint8_t air_pressure_low_pass_filter)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • data_rate – Type: uint8_t, Range: See constants, Default: 4
  • air_pressure_low_pass_filter – Type: uint8_t, Range: See constants, Default: 1
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Configures the data rate and air pressure low pass filter. The low pass filter cut-off frequency (if enabled) can be set to 1/9th or 1/20th of the configure data rate to decrease the noise on the air pressure data.

The low pass filter configuration only applies to the air pressure measurement. There is no low pass filter for the temperature measurement.

A higher data rate will result in a less precise temperature because of self-heating of the sensor. If the accuracy of the temperature reading is important to you, we would recommend the 1Hz data rate.

  • ret_temperature – Type: int16_t, Unit: 1 °C, Range: [-215 to 215 - 1]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the temperature as measured inside the microcontroller. The value returned is not the ambient temperature!

The temperature is only proportional to the real temperature and it has bad accuracy. Practically it is only useful as an indicator for temperature changes.

int barometer_v2_reset(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Calling this function will reset the Bricklet. All configurations will be lost.

After a reset you have to create new device objects, calling functions on the existing ones will result in undefined behavior!

int barometer_v2_write_uid(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint32_t uid)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • uid – Type: uint32_t, Range: [0 to 232 - 1]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Writes a new UID into flash. If you want to set a new UID you have to decode the Base58 encoded UID string into an integer first.

We recommend that you use Brick Viewer to change the UID.

int barometer_v2_read_uid(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint32_t *ret_uid)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:

  • max – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [-231 to 231 - 1], Default: 0
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

The period is the period with which the BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_AIR_PRESSURE callback is triggered periodically. A value of 0 turns the callback off.

If the value has to change-parameter is set to true, the callback is only triggered after the value has changed. If the value didn't change within the period, the callback is triggered immediately on change.

If it is set to false, the callback is continuously triggered with the period, independent of the value.

It is furthermore possible to constrain the callback with thresholds.

The option-parameter together with min/max sets a threshold for the BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_AIR_PRESSURE callback.

The following options are possible:

Option Description
'x' Threshold is turned off
'o' Threshold is triggered when the value is outside the min and max values
'i' Threshold is triggered when the value is inside or equal to the min and max values
'<' Threshold is triggered when the value is smaller than the min value (max is ignored)
'>' Threshold is triggered when the value is greater than the min value (max is ignored)

Callbacks

Callbacks can be registered to receive time critical or recurring data from the device. The registration is done with the barometer_v2_register_callback() function:

void my_callback(int value, void *user_data) {
    printf("Value: %d\n", value);
}

barometer_v2_register_callback(&barometer_v2,
                               BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_EXAMPLE,
                               (void (*)(void))my_callback,
                               NULL);

The available constants with corresponding function signatures are described below.

Note

Using callbacks for recurring events is always preferred compared to using getters. It will use less USB bandwidth and the latency will be a lot better, since there is no round trip time.

BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_AIR_PRESSURE
void callback(int32_t air_pressure, void *user_data)
Callback Parameters:
  • air_pressure – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/1000 hPa, Range: [260000 to 1260000]
  • user_data – Type: void *

This callback is triggered periodically according to the configuration set by barometer_v2_set_air_pressure_callback_configuration().

The parameter is the same as barometer_v2_get_air_pressure().

BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_ALTITUDE
void callback(int32_t altitude, void *user_data)
Callback Parameters:
  • altitude – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1 mm, Range: [-231 to 231 - 1]
  • user_data – Type: void *

This callback is triggered periodically according to the configuration set by barometer_v2_set_altitude_callback_configuration().

The parameter is the same as barometer_v2_get_altitude().

BAROMETER_V2_CALLBACK_TEMPERATURE
void callback(int32_t temperature, void *user_data)
Callback Parameters:
  • temperature – Type: int32_t, Unit: 1/100 °C, Range: [-4000 to 8500]
  • user_data – Type: void *

This callback is triggered periodically according to the configuration set by barometer_v2_set_temperature_callback_configuration().

The parameter is the same as barometer_v2_get_temperature().

Virtual Functions

Virtual functions don't communicate with the device itself, but operate only on the API bindings device object. They can be called without the corresponding IP Connection object being connected.

int barometer_v2_get_api_version(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint8_t ret_api_version[3])
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
Output Parameters:
  • ret_api_version – Type: uint8_t[3]
    • 0: major – Type: uint8_t, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 1: minor – Type: uint8_t, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 2: revision – Type: uint8_t, Range: [0 to 255]
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the version of the API definition implemented by this API bindings. This is neither the release version of this API bindings nor does it tell you anything about the represented Brick or Bricklet.

int barometer_v2_get_response_expected(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint8_t function_id, bool *ret_response_expected)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • function_id – Type: uint8_t, Range: See constants
Output Parameters:
  • ret_response_expected – Type: bool
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Returns the response expected flag for the function specified by the function ID parameter. It is true if the function is expected to send a response, false otherwise.

For getter functions this is enabled by default and cannot be disabled, because those functions will always send a response. For callback configuration functions it is enabled by default too, but can be disabled by barometer_v2_set_response_expected(). For setter functions it is disabled by default and can be enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following constants are available for this function:

For function_id:

  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_AIR_PRESSURE_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 2
  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_ALTITUDE_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 6
  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_TEMPERATURE_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 10

  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_STATUS_LED_CONFIG = 239
  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_RESET = 243
  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_WRITE_UID = 248
int barometer_v2_set_response_expected(BarometerV2 *barometer_v2, uint8_t function_id, bool response_expected)
Parameters:
  • barometer_v2 – Type: BarometerV2 *
  • function_id – Type: uint8_t, Range: See constants
  • response_expected – Type: bool
Returns:
  • error_code – Type: int

Changes the response expected flag of the function specified by the function ID parameter. This flag can only be changed for setter (default value: false) and callback configuration functions (default value: true). For getter functions it is always enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following constants are available for this function:

For function_id:

  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_AIR_PRESSURE_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 2
  • BAROMETER_V2_FUNCTION_SET_ALTITUDE_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 6
