Re: Implementing CIS Sensors (Reference to Google BookScanne

Re: Implementing CIS Sensors (Reference to Google BookScanne

How does it work out of the housing? I mean, all we need to trigger the Start Scan button and the scanner starts reading data?

The motor keeps rotating for like all the time but if I fit all the components back into the housing, it works fine. Any idea what shoul...
