There are essentially 2 ways to read Analog inputs: reading current or reading voltage. Current is generally the most common because it can reach longer distances across the wire without losing analog input signal. Voltage, on the other-hand, will degrade over long distances producing inaccurate readings. When working with devices that only read 1-5V [...]
