Repeater does not accept V_VAR1



  • Repeater does not accept V_VAR1

    I have an power meter node (like the example script).
    It works fine with FEHM 🙂

    But i need an repeater.

    So i used the repeater example an changed the power meter "parent ID" to 10
    define the Repeater as node id 10

    Now it works but only 2 of 3 values are transmitted:
    The relay does not accept the V_VAR1 message from the power meter node 😞

    Serial Log
    powermeter:

    This is a classic powering problem in the repeater node. Add a capacitor on it or introduce a small delay between the messages you send out from the powermeter node (so the radio have some time to recover between transmissions).



  • Thank you very much 🙂
    I'm using an 22uF capacitor on the RFM69HW (MY_RFM69_TX_POWER_DBM 20) between Gnd an 3.3V.
    Is it to small ?
