GPIO Outputs

1. First set up RPi.GPIO (as described here)

import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
GPIO.setup(12, GPIO.OUT)

2. To set an output high:

GPIO.output(12, GPIO.HIGH)
 # or
GPIO.output(12, 1)
 # or
GPIO.output(12, True)

3. To set an output low:

GPIO.output(12, GPIO.LOW)
 # or
GPIO.output(12, 0)
 # or
GPIO.output(12, False)

4. To output to several channels at the same time:

chan_list = (11,12)
GPIO.output(chan_list, GPIO.LOW) # all LOW
GPIO.output(chan_list, (GPIO.HIGH,GPIO.LOW))  # first LOW, second HIGH

5. Clean up at the end of your program


Note that you can read the current state of a channel set up as an output using the input() function. For example to toggle an output:

GPIO.output(12, not GPIO.input(12))
