Input Shield

A simple shield for the Arduino with two potentiometer and four buttons. It has one LED for power and one LED on pin 13.
One has to make two cuts through the copperstripes of the protoboard. And after building one has to bend the legs of the second 8pin header so they fit on the Arduino headers.
The butttons are on pin 2,7,8 and 12 and one has to use the internal pullup resistors. The potis are on analog 0 and 1.





  • 2x standart LEDs
  • 2 potentiometers 10 kOhm
  • 4 push buttons
  • 1x 220 Ohm
  • 2x 6pin and 2x 8pin long header pin row


The Input Shield was designed by Wolfgang Spahn 2015.
