Just wanted to let the folks at Stroud know that I did finally get the Mayfly up and running and I was getting the data set directly to the Monitor My Watershed site. Thank you all for all of your help I couldn’t have done it without you! Now all I have to do is install it. It’s going on the Lackawanna River and is being co-located with the USGS…[Read more]
Yes, you can buy the small case separately, in ABS plastic either with a clear lid or an opaque lid: search the internet for RP1095 or RP1095C and you’ll find multiple vendors.
There’s also a new version with mounting flange feet if you’re planning to mount the case somewhere where having the flange would be helpful. Those are model RP1095BF a…[Read more]
Can these parts be purchased separately?

Hello @shicks thanks for the response. I was thinking partly of the SDI-12 specification modules driving 5V back into the 3.3V ports. The Insitu LT500 that I’ve been using does respond to Mayfly driving it on 3.3V, but then drives back SDI12 specified 5V which has to be mitigated.
Do you see any issues with the level shifter and the port…[Read more]
The Arduino IDE 2.0 is still a beta release and is so new that we haven’t done extensive testing to make sure all our EnviroDIY-related instructions, libraries, and sketches work perfectly. So I would recommend you use the regular release of version 1.8.13 (available here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/software) instead of the beta version.
We’ve encountered a few SDI12 sensors that are more picky about the data line voltage being actually 5v instead of 3.3v, and when sensor excitation line needs 9v or 12v, then we definitely need something between the Mayfly and the sensor. I’ve hand-built a bunch of little adapter boards (see attached photo) for those sensors, using a BSS138,…[Read more]
Are you following the instructions from the top of this page to add the Mayfly board to your IDE: https://www.envirodiy.org/mayfly/software/
You should be able to copy-and-past the URL of the json file into the appropriate place in the IDE Preference window and then the IDE will fetch the file and load it properly. We haven’t made any changes t…[Read more]
