st:fail sometimes and sometimes OK



  • Controller:
    Domoticz, version 2.3867

    Sensor:
    Arduino Nano Clone, nRF24L01+(maybe clone) with one sensor BMP180, battery powered by a LiPo 300 mAh directly to Arduino, no step-down- PWR LED removed, regulator for RAW removed
    BMP180 and NRF is connected via a step-down, 3.3 volt
    Battery level right now is 4 volt

    Gateway:
    Arduino Pro Mini Clone, nRF24L01+(maybe clone). Powered by USB
    Serial gateway

    /////

    Sensor code, added Battery reading from Arduino VCC, not analog input

     * DESCRIPTION
     * The ArduinoGateway prints data received from sensors on the serial link. 
     * The gateway accepts input on seral which will be sent out on radio network.
     *
     * The GW code is designed for Arduino Nano 328p / 16MHz
     *
     * Wire connections (OPTIONAL):
     * - Inclusion button should be connected between digital pin 3 and GND  
     * - RX/TX/ERR leds need to be connected between +5V (anode) and digital pin 6/5/4 with resistor 270-330R in a series
     *
     * LEDs (OPTIONAL):
     * - To use the feature, uncomment WITH_LEDS_BLINKING in MyConfig.h
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error

    Output from Gateway not possible since it is in use by Domoticz. Of course I can disconnect it for test but I don't think Sensor will work correctly without a controller.

    Domoticz log:

    2016-01-05 14:06:15.639 (Test_First) General/Voltage (Voltage_strom)
    2016-01-05 14:08:26.481 (Test_First) General/Voltage (Voltage_strom)
    2016-01-05 14:09:32.184 (Test_First) General/Voltage (Voltage_strom)

    Missing minute 7

    Questions:

    1. Any ideas what this can be or is this normal?

    2. Why do it suddenly says Find parent, is it because it fails for both data that sensor should send? I have seen that if one fails it doesn't say Find parent.

    3. Why does it send Pressure when the code say, IF new is same as last don't send.

    Thanks

    EDIT: added more Sensor output
    EDIT2: distance between sensor and gateway is 1 meter
    EDIT3: add question 3
    EDIT4: Gateway as Pro Mini



  • I disconnected Serial gateway from Domoticz and it seems to work anyway, but not receive the data in Domoticz of course

    I aslo added delay(100) after each gw.send

    It seems that Gateway gets the data but not tells the sensor OK

    I also saw that there is an extra -0 at sensor data but not in gateway, BOLD below

    Gateway:

    Hi!
    Do you have any caps on the radio(s)?



  • @sundberg84
    Yes, on both



  • @flopp said:

    I aslo added delay(100) after each gw.send

    I saw that I had forgot to put the delay for TEMP, i add it and now it seems to be better



  • @flopp said:

    Questions:
    3.Why does it send Pressure when the code say, IF new is same as last don't send.

    I read the code again, and I have not change this part of the code

    float pressure = bmp.readSealevelPressure(ALTITUDE) / 100.0;
    
    Serial.print("Pressure = ");
        Serial.print(pressure);
    

    Pressure is a float so it will get decimals when it reads from BMP.

    
    if (pressure != lastPressure) 
        {
            gw.send(pressureMsg.set(pressure, 1));
            lastPressure = pressure;
        }
    

    This will almost every time send data because there are two decimals which will change.

    I changed it to INT instead of FLOAT and now I get value without decimals and it will not send data every loop, if it not changes of course



  • did you change the caps? I had massive problem with 4,7nF Caps at my gateway: random fails when transmitting. I now use 100nF and 4,7nF at the gateway and it works like a charm

    I have not solder them there, will do now.

    I saw some fails again :pensive: after it worked for 10-15 minutes without any fail

    I think you mean uF not nF? Guide says uF.



  • of course u're right. was a little brainf*ck ;)
    soldering or not does not change anything as long as the parts are fixed.



  • I know but I just put the cap pin in a hole of the dupont cable.


  • Hero Member

    Once I had similar problems, a 4.7nF cap and gw.wait(100) after each transmit did the trick for me... Hope it helps somehow.



  • @rvendrame
    Where did you put ge.wait, sensor code or gateway code?


  • Hero Member

    Sensor. And capacitors on both.

    sorry for asking so much :smile:
    after each gw.send?

    Yes

    Yes

    Thanks



  • It have now been running for 35 minutes without any error, 100uF on both NRF. Delay(100); after each gw.send. Will try later to remove that and see it the problem was the caps.

    Thanks everyone 👊



  • During I wrote above reply it reported 3 fails!!!
    I hope that was just a glitch and will let it run without any changes

    What do you power the nodes with? Since it seems to work better with caps on, there might be something to your power or wiring you can do to make it better.

    I wrote it in first post, no hard feelings

    sensor, lipo batt
    gateway, usb from PC
