3 DHT22 recieving NAN reading from Arduino ATMEGA 2560



  • Hello. I'm working on a project for school. I know the code is ugly, but I need this working before I iterate it through a for loop and an array of dht objects. Right now, the first two sensors are working just fine. I'm receiving nothing but NAN on the third sensor. I have switched sensors between my wiring, and the same happens...so it's not the same sensor. I'm using the 3.3v output from the arduino (using the 5v for the lcd display) and have wired all 3 with 10k pull up resistors to the data pins. My code is IDENTICAL for sensor 3, and messing with the delays has yielded nothing. Below is my code...

    #include <Wire.h> 
    #include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>
    #include <DHT.h>
    
    #define DHTPIN 2     // Digital pin connected to the DHT sensor
    #define DHT2PIN 3
    #define DHT3PIN 5
    // Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 note: use pins 3, 4, 5, 12, 13 or 14 --
    // Pin 15 can work but DHT must be disconnected during program upload.
    
    // Uncomment whatever type you're using!
    //#define DHTTYPE DHT11   // DHT 11
    #define DHTTYPE DHT22   // DHT 22  (AM2302), AM2321
    //#define DHTTYPE DHT21   // DHT 21 (AM2301)
    
    // Connect pin 1 (on the left) of the sensor to +5V
    // NOTE: If using a board with 3.3V logic like an Arduino Due connect pin 1
    // to 3.3V instead of 5V!
    // Connect pin 2 of the sensor to whatever your DHTPIN is
    // Connect pin 4 (on the right) of the sensor to GROUND
    // Connect a 10K resistor from pin 2 (data) to pin 1 (power) of the sensor
    
    // Initialize DHT sensor.
    // Note that older versions of this library took an optional third parameter to
    // tweak the timings for faster processors.  This parameter is no longer needed
    // as the current DHT reading algorithm adjusts itself to work on faster procs.

    @kbickham welcome to the MySensors forum.

    Isn't the lcd connected to pin 5?
    According to https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-huzzah-esp8266-breakout/pinouts pins 4 and 5 are used for i2c, and you are using an i2c lcd.



  • lcd is connected to the dedicated i2c interface pins



  • ![alt text](2_1550347175429_IMG_20190216_135615_2.jpg 1_1550347175429_IMG_20190216_135613_2.jpg 0_1550347175428_IMG_20190216_135609.jpg )
    here are some pictures of what I have.



  • I moved it to pin 6, no change. Also I realize I have the pins defined above, and then explicit feed them in to the functions.



  • WOW, this crappy breadboard had discontinuities on the ground rail. switched it adjacent to the other grounds...and not it works fine!

    @kbickham thanks for clarifying. Sorry for not reading properly, I thought you used an esp8266.



  • h2 = dht2.readHumidity(); // Sensor readings may also be up to 2 seconds 'old' (its a very slow sensor)
    t2 = dht2.readTemperature(); // Read temperature as Celsius (the default) // Read temperature as Fahrenheit (isFahrenheit = true)
    f2 = dht2.readTemperature(true);
    if (isnan(h) || isnan(t) || isnan(f)) {
    Serial.println(F("Failed to read from DHT sensor 2!"));
    return;

    if (isnan(h) || isnan(t) || isnan(f)) {
    should be h2, t2, f2, and the same for the third DHT 😉
