I don’t use the Arduino IDE, but as a workaround, I’d try downloading a previous version of ModularSensors. Delete ModularSensors from your Arduino libraries folder, and grab a zip of the previous version, 0.27.8 from the Releases page on github and install it instead.
I called Meter Group tech support because my manual only showed the 3.5mm jack connection, bare wires were not addressed and they confirmed your connection, Shannon. (red to D2, white to Vcc, and black to GND) I also had a 4th bare wire that he told me to wrap with electrical tape and tape it out of the way so it can’t cross other connections. He…[Read more]
My experience with Hologram Pilot Plan on the 2g network was as follows:
3 parameters (Conductivity, Temp, Depth) returned in addition to DateTime @ 15 minute intervals
Average daily use = 715 B per day. As an example we used 1.34 MB in the month of March 2020.
So for 1 station the cost is easily < $20 per year (in the pilot plan). However,…[Read more]
I’m new to all this so still using ArduinoIDE for now. I’m getting a similar error when trying to change the address for a Meters CDT sensor. (One of the ones I recently purchased was recalled so I am trying to connect a different one).
The error reads “Invalid version ‘0.28.01’ for library in: C…[Read more]
Confirmed via the PIO forum: https://community.platformio.org/t/valueerror-invalid-simple-block-0-28-01/19759
I suspected that was it! Confirmed that the .1 works for me as well.
I don’t believe 0.28.01 is valid, per semver.org: “Numeric identifiers MUST NOT include leading zeroes.”
Interestingly, sometimes PIO will fail silently when I use 0.28.01 via lib_deps (no error message), but it doesn’t install the lib dependencies at all. When I change it to…[Read more]
I recently had this problem too!
The solution was to type:
lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.28.1
So, drop the “0”. Everything worked well, and it properly fetched v0.28.01.
I’m not sure why Sara added that 0 to this version, but I suspect is was for a reason, but unfortunately the PlatformIO library registry doesn’t like having…[Read more]
When adding ModSensors 0.28.01 to a new project, I get the error: ValueError: Invalid simple block ‘^0.28.01’. I’ve included the full error text in the attached file. I’m getting this on multiple PCs, and other versions of MS do not give me this error.
I suspect this is a PlatformIO problem, but I’m posting here to see if others have seen it or…[Read more]
Shannon, yes, the outer jacket color I received is black. Good to know about the possibility of sensor damage or bricking.
Thanks for the info Brian. I heard they were switching cable outer jacket colors soon, and a few of our workshop attendees last month received Hydros 21 sensors with black cable instead of the usual red, so I’m assuming the inner wire color changed too. Their soil moisture sensors also changed inner wire colors a few years ago, and the manual s…[Read more]
