Thank you for being so willing to help. I am using the Mayfly version 1.1 and the wifi/cell board is the Envirodiy LTE Bee. I am attempting to run the Modular Sensor code of Menu a la Carte on Arduino and have made some adjustments mostly in cutting out unnecessary sensors.
Congrats – nice to see.
I guess the fundamental problem of power management is still there and can bite any time the power drops – and then likely will require a site visit to get the site restarted. Getting enough power is a band aid to enable reporting readings. So long as the power supplied exceeds the power used by a good margin it works. :)…[Read more]
@jamesp thanks for sharing. Interesting where the “banana skins” are to slip on.
Nice to know its got low quiescent current – end of last year I also got the same SanDisk Industrial MLC MicroSD SDHC UHS-I Class 10 SDSDQAF3-008G-I withs its specified Operating Temp Range: -25°C to 85°C , but haven’t measured its current 🙂
I’ve bought uSD with…[Read more]
Rather than create a new forum post for this issue, I’ll just add to this thread from last summer.
Today (January 22, 2024) there has been a widespread nationwide (USA) cellular network outage that has been affecting users of all the major wireless carriers, including the ones used by Hologram (the company that most of the EnviroDIY stations…[Read more]
We’d need more information in order to troubleshoot your problem. Are you using an EnviroDIY Mayfly board, and if so what hardware version do you have? What cell or wifi board are you using? What Arduino sketch are you using on the board and are you using it mostly as-is, or did you rewrite any part of it or the supporting libraries?
I have spent the past week trying to fix my code to wake up the modem, but I have not been able to fix it. Every time I run the code, I get this: Could not wake modem for clock sync. Meaning, I am getting data from the sensors, but instead of being able to send it to Monitor my Watershed, it saves as a file on an SD card. I would be very…[Read more]
