Pro Mini 3.3v does not receive messages



  • I have multiple 5V nodes running normally and I am trying to build a battery powered 3.3V node. I have assembled three 3.3V nodes (based on 'Easy/Newbie PCB') and all three of them have the same issue.

    The sketch is the pulse energy meter sketch with sleep mode activated. Node id is hardcoded to 33. The node does not receive messages from the gateway. Gateway and the node are reasonably closer. I have tested the radio with a 5V node and it is working.

    Can someone please help me to understand the issue. Thanks.

  • Mod

    @erangaj great that you have identified that it is a power supply issue. Have you looked at the power issue flowchart at https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/666/debug-faq-and-how-ask-for-help ?



  • Finally managed to fix it. It was an issue with the battery booster. In the PCB battery booster is connected to the MCU only and the radio was powered directly. Fixed by removing the booster. Now both mcu and radio 3.3v pins are connected together. Battery booster can be connected externally.


  • Hardware Contributor

    @erangaj - good you fixed it.
    The PCB is made that way for a reason though. The booster is very noicy which will disturb the radio. Therefor only the MCU is connected to the booster. The radio can also handle down to 1.9V so the booster isnt needed. If you are using batteries the node will die when the voltage goes below 2.8 since this is the lower point of the atmega with standard bod. If you are using 3.3v arduino and powering it with a 3.3v power source (not batteries) I would jump the REG and also the voltgage regulator Vin and VOut and just skip the booster.



  • I really don't know how it happens. Here are some pictures of the node. (I have de-soldered battery sensor voltage divider while testing.)

    When the booster is connected to power MCU only:
    Vin of the booster was about 2.9V and Vo was 3.3V as expected.

    I have tried different radios and boosters without success.



  • My issue appears to be same as https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/4895/strange-behaviour-with-dc-3-3v-step-up-booster/6

    Im going to try CR123 batteries instead.

    @erangaj - I cant see on the pictures which mode you selected on the PCB. Did you solder BAT or REG ?
    In your case, using batteries and a booster you should solder a jumper over BAT. Just checking.

    Also the voltage divider for measuring the battery looks really strange, but that should not matter.
    Did you read the instructions for the PCB?



  • @sundberg84 said in Pro Mini 3.3v does not receive messages:

    BAT

    Thank you for asking. BAT is soldered.


  • Hardware Contributor

    @erangaj - good!
    I hope you find the cause of this - let me know if I can do anything else.
