Sara captures all the libs specified as part of the release procedure https://github.com/EnviroDIY/ModularSensors/releases/tag/v0.30.0 look for ModularSensors_Dependencies_v0.30.0.zip
I’ve not had any issue with 0.30.0.. The tests are heavily utilizing the SD for reliable web delivery, storing them to uSD, before a POST.
I do a build from…[Read more]

I haven’t had any issues with any loggers not recording data recently or clocks not running, including boards I just programmed this week. But I use stable libraries from several months ago and haven’t updated them recently. Are you using all the libraries that are available in our suggested .zip file, found here: h…[Read more]

A small update for everyone:
We were able to allow the Mayfly to operate by updating the libraries in our code. We are using some core IDE libraries as well as some EnviroDIY libraries. My sense is that there might be a conflict between the recent update to the SD library, and perhaps a pin interrupt library from EnviroDIY, but I’m not sure.
I’m trying to connect mkr458 with an Y511 sensor, I have followed the instrutions here, and tried different things to connect. Nonetheless, I get an “echo” of the “Raw request”. output attached.
The we’ve found that loggers with the Digi cell boards on them have a tendency to act a little squirrely sometimes and give either erroneous readings or cause excessive power draw. In you case, I’d start with putting a fully-charged 4400 mAh battery on your station and see how it performs for a few weeks. If that doesn’t solve it, investigate t…[Read more]
What’s the battery size (maHr) and solar panel (W)?. Also which port do you plug the solar panel into?
I’m wondering though, you are also sampling every 5minutes, do you need it to be that frequent? Would 15minutes work?
Interesting, it does seem to be a sudden V drop. Looking at the raw readings on the downloaded csv it is also oscillating f…[Read more]
Just an observation, once the hardware is working nicely, it often takes more software to manage that hardware 🙂 – it’s a broad subject when talking about power – the battery voltage encodes battery type , solar panel sizing, solar aspect and vegetation coverage, and when is the power used – all to get the readings to show reliably on the w…[Read more]
The battery was not replaced again on August 25th, that is the same battery that will no longer charge. Doesn’t the scale of battery loss and gain look extreme. I adjusted the solar panel to get more light, it is in a pretty shady area but it get direct sunlight for a couple of hours everyday.
Do you all think I need a bigger battery or a l…[Read more]
