Error with Gateway + Sensor sketch [Solved]



  • Hi, I just set up a serial gateway, but I want to intergrate other things (ex : Temp + Humidity) on a single arduino. However, my sketch gives me the following error:

    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    

    And here's my edited version of the gateway sketch (intergrated) :

    /**

    *
    * 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 any of the MY_DEFAULT_xx_LED_PINs
    * - 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
    *

    When I try the vanilla version of the gateway sketch, it works.
    Can anyone tell me what could be wrong w/ it?

    EDIT : uses the DHT lib. 1.2.3 from the arduino IDE 1.8.6 library manager.
    didn't use latest library because of some issues(unrelated)


  • Mod

    First of all if you make a gateway you can't use sleep in loop, you need to use wait() or it will not receive data from the nodes.
    The error you get is usually related to a wiring problem of the radio.


  • Mod

    Welcome to the MySensors community @TheNewWorld !

    If you haven't already, see the troubleshooting guide at https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/666/debug-faq-and-how-ask-for-help/
    It includes links to detailed documentation on the debug output.

    As gohan says, init fail is usually caused by wrong wiring. Could you post the rest of the debug output? (What happens before it fails?)



  • @gohan OK, didn't know about not using sleep. Will change it.

    As for the wiring issue, I don't think that is a problem because it works well with the vanilla version of the gateway sketch with the same wiring.

    I will post the debug output ASAP.



  • Debug output for that sketch is

    0;255;3;0;9;MCO:BGN:INIT GW,CP=RNNGA--,VER=2.1.1
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSF:WUR:MS=0
    0;255;3;0;9;!TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:CNT=1
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:PDT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:RE-INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;!TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:CNT=2
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:PDT
    

    That is repeated over and over until CNT hits 7. When it hits 7, it says this forever

    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;!TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:CNT=7
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:PDT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:RE-INIT
    

  • Mod

    @TheNewWorld does the vanilla sketch work when the sensors are connected (but unused)?

    If that's the case, add the code for one sensor and see if the radio stops working. Then try the other one (remove the code for the first). That way you should be able to figure out which of the sensors are messing with radio communication.



  • OK, uploaded the vanilla sketch and it now DOESN'T WORK with no sensors attached. also shows the above message.


  • Mod

    Then it is most likely a wiring problem or radio module dead



  • It works from an Arduino UNO clone; It's a connection error

    Thanks @gohan @mfalkvidd for your kind help.
