ADS.begin(unsigned int mode)

Description

Configures the ADS1118 to the mode that is defined in the argument of the function. “mode” should be passed as either a ‘0’ or a ‘1’. ‘o’ will set the ADS1118 to convert the voltage of the integrated temperature sensor and ‘1’ will set the ADS1118 is set to convert the voltage of the thermocouple.
