Still having problems and this is my first purchase from PCBway not sure if the code need to be changed for this board but I am using PCB MySensors Gateway Ethernet 3.0 developed by fifisoft57. The radios work on other projects and it is almost like the pins are not correct I traced them and they appear right but......... Has anyone used this board if so did you have any issues? I would say it is my solder job but I did 3 boards one should work.
ANy help would be great.
One little project and you're hooked! You know you're going to want another sensor in the yard, so consider a gateway running MQTT (called a broker). Once you have that, it's really easy to add more sensors.
But if you're really strong willed an will only be using two devices ever, you might look at https://nrf24.github.io/RF24/index.html. You can get an Arduino Nano and an nRF24 radio for about $3.50 from Aliexpress (downside: delivery takes ~2 months, so get 10 each.)
MySensors Library can do this, too, but I find it a little bloated.
Personal note: I'm 70, retired engineer, and have only four projects going right now.
I think you need to post a clear drawing or photos of the setup and the code you are using.
I donlt know what you mean by "connecting the current in series" nor what "AC regulator" you are using or what "thermal serial currenr" is.
@BearWithBeard Wow, thanks for this detailed answer!
Today, I received an answer from Ebyte:
Yes, because of the shortage of chips, E01-ML01D is temporarily out of stock. It will be available in next mouth, if you have a purchase plan, please book as soon as possible.
@skywatch So, there is hope
Please note that below is just my simple view on sensors of any type.
I think any sensor exposed to environment will need some type or form of maintenance/cleaning or replacement. I also do not think that sensor can test itself unless there is other sensor of different type/technology monitoring other sensor.
As you mentioned previously true way to test sensors is using smoke can from time to time as dust particles/moisture/grease may affect sensors of different types.
