RFM69 new driver delay



  • Hello,

    i am going to change my network from NRF24 to RFM69.
    Using the old RFM69 driver all is working fine. Using the new driver there is a delay on the nodes with an actor. The serial output shows that the gateway sends a request to the node, getting an acknolege the message is send to the node. This delays the actor appx 1.5 seconds. For nodes eg. lights with dimming funktion not very nice.
    Is there any possibility to speed this up ?

    My setup is: Fhem, Mysensors 2.2 rc1, ESP8266 Gateway - RFM69, node with RFM69

    Thanks for help!
    Have a good day

    Stefan


  • Mod

    I haven't tried actuators yet with rfm69, but new driver has ACS enabled, you could try to disable it and set a fixed TX power



  • @gohan said in RFM69 new driver delay:

    ACS enabled

    What i tried is before is #define MY_RFM69_ATC_MODE_DISABLED , no change

    hello,

    could you provide sketch for gw and node, + logs please ?



  • Hello,

    here are the scetches gateway an simple actor with logs. Nothing strange, i think.
    I set some values ti fixed, for testing. If i use the old driver the response is imediatly.

    the scetches

    0_1509659557196_GatewayESP8266_RFM69.ino

    0_1509659598721_RelayActuator_TestRFM69_new.ino

    the logs, i switched on / off several times

  • Hello,

    i have done some more test benching both drivers. Sending a command on and off.
    Using the new driver is like indian smoke signs, response more than 1 sec.
    I just uncomment the #define MY_RFM69_NEW_DRIVER i am in a different world
    The response using the old driver is below 100ms.
    By the way, gateway and node are in the same small room.

    Have good time
    Stefan



  • @scalz : any news about this problem ? I would like to move to the new driver but after reading this, I think it will be better to wait πŸ˜‰



  • no news, i am using the old driver



  • Any news here? Can we use the new driver or should we stay with the old one?



  • Hi
    Yesterday i update my MySenors 2.2.0 to version 2.3.0. I use it with gateway on my Home Assistant. But after update i have big problem with communication on radio RFM69HW. Sometimes communication is lost or very long. When i send command to node sometimes it no received it. But when come back to old version 2.2.0 all works perfect.
    Some users suggest me to no use "NEW_DRIVER" It is true ?

  • Mod

    @pepson did you change the gateway and all your nodes to use the new driver? Nodes with the old driver and the new drivers can not communicate.

  • @mfalkvidd

    But on version 2.2.0 all works ok. Only on 2.3.0 is problem...

    Gateway i have on RPI3 build by this:

    git clone https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors.git --branch master

    cd MySensors

    ./configure --my-transport=rfm69 --my-rfm69-frequency=868 --my-is-rfm69hw --my-gateway=ethernet --my-port=5003 --my-leds-err-pin=12 --my-leds-rx-pin=16 --my-leds-tx-pin=18

    make

    TESTY
    sudo ./bin/mysgw -d

    sudo make install

    sudo systemctl enable mysgw.service

    sudo systemctl start mysgw.service

    How use new driver in building gateway on RPI3 ?


  • Mod

    RPI gw uses new driver only. I am sticking to 2.2 for now as I had some timing issues with the RPI3, if you make a gw with an arduino it would probably work better with 2.3



  • @gohan
    I want use gateway on RPI because i use special project PCB for gateway on RPI3.
    But on MySensors 2.2.0 i also use NEW DRIVER and all works ok. But why not works on 2.3.0 ?


  • Mod

    If I got it right it is related to RPI3, on RPI2 it should work



  • @gohan
    From where you have this information?
    Is any chance to fix this problem?


  • Mod

    I was talking to @tekka some time ago about the issues I had on 2.3 alpha, I don't know what he did after that.



  • @gohan
    And where we can send issue with this?


  • Mod

    github and if you attach the rfm69 verbose output both for gw and node



  • @gohan
    But how I can download info from gateway and node?

    On github created issue but nothing replay from developers...


  • Mod

    @pepson all core members are helping MySensors when they have free time. Quick replies can happen, but don't count on it. We have as many projects and as little time as you.



  • @mfalkvidd
    OK thanks



  • I run mysgw 2.30 on a RPi 3 Model B and all nodes on 2.20 with RFM69:

    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    .
    .
    Hardware	: BCM2835
    Revision	: a02082
    

    I did a git pull then configured:

    ./configure --my-transport=rfm69 --my-is-rfm69hw --my-rfm69-frequency=868
    make
    sudo make install
    

    Note that I don't use LED's or specify gateway. My Controller is Domoticz

    I then started the gateway with debug (note missing -d) (and the log is from today):

    pi@mysensors-gw:~ $ sudo /usr/local/bin/mysgw

    After the debug check I pressed ctrl-c and started mysgw as a service

    sudo systemctl start mysgw.service
    

    System has been running without any hickup since then.

    If you check the commit 2175c993ef81b78527c85649f5bdc3585d2f41b2 you will notice that -d is removed and some other features has been added.

        Linux: Use config file for gateway settings (#1061)
        
        - The following settings can be use on the config file:
          - verbose=[debug,info,notice,warn,err] - Logging verbosity.
          - log_file[0|1] - Enable logging to a file.
          - log_filepath=(FILE) - Log file path.
          - log_pipe=[0|1] - Enable logging to a named pipe(aka fifo).
            Use this option to view your gateway's log messages from the
            log_pipe_file (defined below).
            To do so, run the following command on another terminal:
            - $ cat "log_pipe_file"
          - log_pipe_file=(FILE)
          - syslog=[0|1] - Enable logging to syslog.
          - eeprom_file=[/etc/mysensors.eeprom]
          - eeprom_size=[1024]
        - Change some mysgw parameters:
          - Added:
            - -q, --quiet:  for quiet mode, disable log messages written to the
            terminal.
          - Removed:
            - -d, --debug: removed, log messages are now enabled by default.
          - Replaced:
            - -b, --background: replaced by --daemon
        - isatty() is no longer used, log messages by default are printed to
          stderr unless the gateway is started with --quiet (#1022)
        - MY_LINUX_CONFIG_FILE: no longer holds the path to the eeprom file,
          but to the configuration file
    

    My nodes has these definitions (I don't use New Driver):

    #define   MY_SPLASH_SCREEN_DISABLED
    // Enable and select radio type attached
    #define   MY_RADIO_RFM69
    #define   MY_IS_RFM69HW
    #define   MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY RFM69_868MHZ
    


  • @mickecarlsson

    Hi
    But you run gateway on 2.3.0 and node on 2.2.0 without NEW DRIVER and it was working ?
    Even though the gateway has a different version and nodes have a different ?
    All people tell that gateway and nodes must have the same version ?


  • Mod

    There have been versions in the past that were not backward compatible, but usually it is not necessary to have same version on gw and nodes



  • @gohan

    Ok thanks



  • @pepson
    Yes, I run gateway 2.30 and nodes on 2.20 without new driver. No probems.



  • Today i installed Gateway on RPI3 with version 2.3.0 but node has 2.2.0 with NEW_DRIVER and still is problem with communication.

    After come back to home i test it with change version on node to 2.2.0 without NEW_DRIVER.

    I give you and info...

    But tell me on what RPI you have run gateway version 2.3.0 ?
    I have RPI3 version B.



  • @mickecarlsson said in RFM69 new driver delay:

    > cat /proc/cpuinfo
    > .
    > .
    > Hardware	: BCM2835
    > Revision	: a02082
    

    Type as above and check the last entries, my RPi is revision a02082
    Se here for more info:
    Raspberry Pi revision codes



  • @mickecarlsson
    It is the same hardware and rev.
    Ok i done test...
    On Gateway on RPI3 i have installed MySensors 2.3.0

    On node i installed version 2.2.0
    One with NEW_DRIVER. Communication with gateway sometimes is ok but still with problem lost communication.

    Second test installed on node 2.2.0 without NEW_DRIVER and it no working. No communicate with gateway.
    Not working NODE. Any reaction to control relay.

    For me only all working when i have MySensors 2.2.0 also on Gateway and also on node with NEW DRIVER option.

  • What kind of antenna do you have on the RPi for the radio? And what kind of antenna do you have on the node?



  • @mickecarlsson

    I have a wire length if I remember 82mm.



  • Just a hunch, add 4 mm to it so that it is 86 mm instead..
    And the power supply for the RPi must be able to provide at leat 1.5 A at 5Volt. Dont go for a cheap powersupply, it wont cope with the power drain from the ROi.



  • @mickecarlsson

    Hi
    my bug lenght antenna is 86mm. Sorry.
    Power for RPI is very good and original raspberry manufacturer provide about 2,5A

    After my tests only on MySensors 2.2.0 on Gateway and on Nodes 2.2.0 with NEW_DRIVER all works ok.

    In other like gateway 2.3.0 and node 2.2.0 or 2.3.0 with NEW_DRIVER or without NEW_DRIVER not working correct.



  • This post is deleted!


  • @kimot

    I dont must use NEW_DRIVER, but when i write sketch to my node without option NEW_DRIVER, it no working. I tested some combination...mix. Gateway 2.3.0 or 2.2.0 with node 2.2.0 and 2.3.0 and Only with NEW_DRIVER works ok and only on 2.2.0 on node and gateway.

  • And is any chance to run gateway on RPI3 but on old default driver not with NEW DRIVER ?

    Anybody has any solution for my problem with communication on version 2.3.0 ?



  • I just checked all my nodes:

    1. Garage - measures temperature/humidity and power usage - uses NEW_DRIVER, Arduino UNO, powered all times.
    2. Storage - measures temperature/humidity and power usage - uses NEW_DRIVER, Arduino UNO powered all times.
    3. Greenhouse - measures temperature/humidity - uses "old" driver, Arduino Pro Mini, battery powered.
    4. Patio - measures temperature/humidity - uses "old" driver, Arduino Pro Mini, battery powered.
    5. Bedroom - measures temperature/humidity - uses "old" driver, Arduino Pro Mini, battery powered.
    6. Kitchen area - measures temperature/humidity - uses "old" driver, Arduino Pro Mini, battery powered.

    My nodes are within 40 meters from the gateway.
    I will no reprogram the node 4 and 5 to use the new driver to see if that makes any difference.
    Node 1 and 2 are the nodes farthest away from the gateway, there is one brick wall and three wood walls between the node and the gateway.



  • @mickecarlsson
    Please also for all points give info what version MySensors use and if you can upload your sketches for all point.

    And Gateway has on RPI3 with version 2.3.0 ? By Serial or ethernet ? And tell me with what controller you use it ? I use with Home Assistant.

    And BTW tell me how long Arduino Mini Pro work for you on battery and what battery you use ... and show your project... Did you remove LED from Arduino to save power battery ?
    In Sketch you measure % power from battery ? And send to controller ? What controller you use ?

    @pepson @mickecarlsson
    in theory, if I remember well, length of antenna should be:

    • 86mm for 868mhz
    • 82mm for 915Mhz
      Better check which frequency you can use where you live.

    Also this is in ideal world, it depends on:

    • antenna material
    • gnd plane size
    • etc

    So when you want to tune your network, you could use a good, 868mhz for example, antenna on gateway (from a reliable supplier, as there are also a lot of unmatched antenna around).
    Then you can try to tune emprically, by checking rssi vs length. Add length or cut, and check. If you need more or less length is dependant on above factors.

    As already said, we don't recommand mixing new driver with older.. As packet has not the same format.
    No eta for fixing rfm69 if issues, too busy for the moment, but we'll try asap.

    Yes i have for my radio anntena 86mm.
    On nodes and gateway i am sure that i use freq 868MHz.
    Look on my command to build gateway and on my sketches node.
    On version 2.2.0 i use gateway (as people write by my command i use NEW DRIVER) and also on node also use NEW DRIVER and in this solution all works perfect with no problem.

    When i update gateway and node to 2.3.0 also with NEW DRIVER i have a problem that controll node and connection is no stabilish. In my Home Assistant sometimes i can controll relay but sometimes no reaction on click by Home Assistant. When use on node old driver (but on gateway NEW DRIVER) it is no working. Only on version 2.2.0 on gatewy and node all works perfect.

    Is any chance to build gateway on RPI3 with old driver to RFM69HW ? Because as people write in default building on gateway on RPI3 use NEW DRIVER and we can not change it.... It is true ?


  • Hardware Contributor

    @pepson
    My comments about tuning antenna were general, it can be useful for optimizing your network.

    I already read what you said previously πŸ˜‰ It should be normal that new&old driver not working together (unless a recent change..).

    We'll take a look at which changes are incorrect. I'm using experimental local mysensors version, so I'm a bit off topic regarding official release and no time for debugging, for the moment, as like I said we'll try to check that asap.

    Regarding RPI, I'm not using it as gw (I prefer a lower power gw that i can place where i want) so I'm not sure. Take it with a pinch of salt but if i remember, old rfm69 driver spi functions etc are not adapted to linux (whereas new driver is)

    If 2.3 is blocking, do you need a particular fix in 2.3 ? Else you could stick to 2.2



  • OK,
    Here goes what I have:
    Arduino Pro Mini, chinese clones. Regulator and led removed. Soldered on EasyPCB rev 9.
    Radio is RFM69 868 MHz with helicoil antenna on the nodes, 86 mm antenna on the Gateway
    Bootloader is from https://github.com/MCUdude/MiniCore
    The bootloader settings are:
    Board: ATmega328
    Bootloader: Yes
    Variant: 328P / 328PA
    BOD: 1.8v
    Clock: 1MHz internal
    Compiler LTO: Disabled (default)

    On the EasyPCB I have only soldered the radio, the antenna and the Arduino. No booster, no capacitors, no resistors.
    I have put a link on the REG and run the node on two AA batteries.
    The nodes only have one sensor, the BME280.

    The controller I use is Domoticz, latest version (I think).

    I have now reprogrammed some of the nodes to 2.30 and I use NEW_DRIVER.
    Gateway - 2.3.0
    Patio - 2.3.0
    Test-node - 2.3.0
    Kitchen - 2.3.0
    Bedroom - 2.3.0
    UV and LUX - 2.3.0

    No problems at all.
    However, I do not use the receive() function on my nodes.
    And I see that you use the REPEATER setting, if your node can reach the gateway the disable repeater.



  • @mickecarlsson

    Tell me for what you change bootloader ? And i also have clone chine arduino pro mini... I also must change bootloader on this Arduino Pro Mini CLONE CHINA ? Because i dont change bootloader after buy...

    And if you can show also your antenna...and where you buy this antenna ? I try found on Aliexpres but not found.

    And I see that you use the REPEATER setting, if your node can reach the gateway the disable repeater.
    But i can not use REPEATER function to to increase the range from the gate - something like the MESH network ?

    And is any chance to you test my SKETCH with relay on your arduino ?



  • You don't ned to change bootloader, I do because I run on battery and it fits my need.
    I can't test your sketch as I don't have the necessary hardware to test it.
    How far apart are your nodes?
    My antenna is from AliExpress



  • @mickecarlsson
    Now my node is very near my Gateway about 6meters. Because now i project my automation in my new home.

    But if you only have Arduino Pro Mini with Radio RFM69HW you can test my sketch. I think that you dont need 2xrelay to test it... Please...

    But for what is function REPEATER ? To increase range from Gateway to very far node ? Then the node with the repeater function extends the range?

    When come back to home i try build node without option REPEATER and try run this...

    Also can you give on priv info how upload this bootloader ? I can only write by ArduinoIDE or i must do other actions ?



  • You only need repeater fi you have a node far away that can’t reach the gateway, then you add repeater on a node nearer the gateway.
    See here: MySensors Network
    And if the node has repeater defined it must allways have power and no Sleep.
    Sorry, I can’t test the sketch.



  • @mickecarlsson
    Can you share me your all sketches ? Thanks
    And tell me how you have connected Gateway to RPI3? By ethernet or by serial ? Because i see in your building Gateway that you dont use parameter ETHERNET on port 5003

    And anybody has any contact to developer @tekka007 ?

  • @mickecarlsson I done next test.
    Updated my Gateway on RPI3 to 2.3.0
    Then also update my nodes to 2.3.0
    One node which i use is to control Switch Relay. It works ok also with Repeater function and also without Repeater function.
    Second node is to control cover by relay. It no working correct also with Reapeater and also without Repeater function. Status is not update in the same time. Sometimes no respod reaction on click button.

    Below i see SWITCH releay SKETCH and also to Cover.
    Please help me.
    Also i need help to convert this sketch for Switch 1xRelay to Switch 2x Releay. ANybody can help me. ?

  • Finally
    In my opinion on MySensors 2.2.0 all my sketches (switch relay and cover ) works better. With no problem. NO PROBLEM.
    Cover works perfect and switch works perfect without any timeout and delay. ANd all node works without REPEATER.
    My opinion is that in version 2.3.0 something not working correct with radio RFM69HW.
    Maybe for sensors which send data from time to time is ok , but for cover which transfer data when cover is roll, it is problem... and gateway can not recived all data when node send position cover. Maybe developer read this thread and can do any changes to correct it.



  • @mickecarlsson

    ANd tell me how you connect Gateway to your Domoticz Controller ? What path to usb or serial you setup in Domoticz ?

    Like I said, we will take a look as soon as we get time. For the moment, busy (at least on my side). And we're a few, using rfm69.
    So if 2.2 fixes your issue, it can be a good idea.



  • @scalz

    Ok thanks. WAiting for info... and good info for me will be that problem with RFM69HW on version 2.3.0 will be resolve and i can update to this version. Now i must come back to version 2.2.0


  • Mod

    If you don't need specific features in 2.3, then stick to 2.2 that works well.

    RFM69W / HW user here. I can confirm that V 2.3.0 on both nodes and PI has some broken. My nodes, stable for 3+ months, with new version they have issues. In detail, they cannot get ACK. In my sketch, I check for ACK when transmitting, to force the watchdog or no. NO ACK received (1 every 20/30) 😞

    And my nodes are "perfect". LifePo4 or AA, someone feeded directly, RPI3 with 2.5a... And I repeat, no issues in 3+ months from switching from NRF to RFM.



  • This is my generic temperature/humidity/battery level sketch that I use. I have upgraded all my nodes and gateway to 2.3.0 yesterday and I don't have any issue whatsoever πŸ™‚

  • @pepson said in RFM69 new driver delay:

    And tell me how you have connected Gateway to RPI3? By ethernet or by serial ? Because i see in your building Gateway that you dont use parameter ETHERNET on port 5003

    I use Ethernet to connect to my Domoticz.
    The reason that you don't see my configuration for ETHERNET or PORT is because they are default when you configure.
    If you look at the file Makefile.inc you will see the build options. In my case the file looks like this:

    SOC=BCM2837
    CPPFLAGS=-march=armv8-a+crc -mtune=cortex-a53 -mfpu=neon-fp-armv8 -mfloat-abi=hard -DMY_RADIO_RFM69 -DMY_RFM69_NEW_DRIVER -DMY_GATEWAY_LINUX -DMY_DEBUG -DLINUX_SPI_BCM -DLINUX_ARCH_RASPBERRYPI -DMY_RFM69_FREQUENCY=RFM69_868MHZ -DMY_IS_RFM69HW 
    LDFLAGS=-pthread 
    PREFIX=/usr/local
    CC=gcc
    CXX=g++
    BUILDDIR=build
    BINDIR=bin
    GATEWAY_DIR=/usr/local/bin
    INIT_SYSTEM=systemd
    SPI_DRIVER=BCM
    

    So in my case I have these defines:
    MY_RADIO_RFM69
    MY_RFM69_NEW_DRIVER
    MY_GATEWAY_LINUX
    MY_DEBUG
    LINUX_SPI_BCM
    LINUX_ARCH_RASPBERRYPI
    MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY=RFM69_868MHZ
    MY_IS_RFM69HW



  • @mickecarlsson
    You dont have issue becuase temp/hum send data from time to time every defined time.
    My sketch with relay also looks that works ok.
    But problem is on sketch with relay to control covers. WHen cover roll node send still data and it is problem...
    This is my opinion.

    @pepson
    just to know, when you get this issue, do you send to one shutter only? (because i see you're sending each %, each 200ms). Well we have already did a stress test in the past, one packet each 50-70ms with a dozen of nodes and it worked but that was with a local unoffcial lib, and not with rpi as gw.
    I don't remember if buffer has been implemented in regular branch, for rfm69 (but I think so). And it should work like you said it works with 2.2
    We'll be able retry some stress tests, unfortunately not on rpi as gw (not using this setup), I'm not sure but maybe only marceloaqno may be using rpi with rfm69 (not sure), and we're a very few rfm69 users. Let us check if it's a general problem or rpi as gw only.
    Sorry for disturbance πŸ˜‰

    Hmmm
    I am not advanced user. This sketch i found on github from other user. I can change sometinh in sketch to test it ? Can you help me what change in sketch to test ?

    no idea if it will help you, but what i meant is sending less msg .
    I think i recognize some parts of this sketch, not sure πŸ™‚

    So, in your sketch, here you can see it sends at each %

      if (isMoving) 
      {
        unsigned long _now = millis();
        if (_now - lastLevelTime >= timeOneLevel * 1000) {
          if (directionUpDown == DIRECTION_UP) {
            currentShutterLevel += 1;
          } else {
            currentShutterLevel -= 1;
          }
          currentShutterLevel = constrain(currentShutterLevel, 0, 100);
          #ifdef MY_DEBUG
          Serial.println(String(requestedShutterLevel));
          Serial.println(String(currentShutterLevel));
          #endif
          lastLevelTime = millis();
          send(msgPercentage.set(currentShutterLevel));
    

    try to change this last line, by:

    if (currentShutterLevel % 5 == 0) send(msgPercentage.set(currentShutterLevel)); // change 5 by 10 if you want to send each 10% for example
    

    no worry about shutter level update in controller, because when it will stop it will send its level (with sendstate in shutterhalt).
    As your settings in top of sketch is 20sec for a complete roll, then it should send each second instead of 200ms previously (except if you did some calibration), and if i'm not wrong, I quickly read it!

    Sorry but i dont know what line chage with this your line

    if (currentShutterLevel % 5 == 0) send(msgPercentage.set(currentShutterLevel)); // change 5 by 10 if you want to send each 10% for example```

    I extracted a part of your sketch above. change the last line of the extract



  • @scalz

    Should looks like this ?

    if (isMoving) 
      {
        unsigned long _now = millis();
        if (_now - lastLevelTime >= timeOneLevel * 1000) {
          if (directionUpDown == DIRECTION_UP) {
            currentShutterLevel += 1;
          } else {
            currentShutterLevel -= 1;
          }
          currentShutterLevel = constrain(currentShutterLevel, 0, 100);
          #ifdef MY_DEBUG
          Serial.println(String(requestedShutterLevel));
          Serial.println(String(currentShutterLevel));
          #endif
          lastLevelTime = millis();
          if (currentShutterLevel % 5 == 0) send(msgPercentage.set(currentShutterLevel)); // change 5 by 10 if you want to send each 10% for example```


  • Ok tested as show in previus post. And the same problem. Maybe a little better. But maybe no...
    On 2.2.0 is a very very better.
