I had the board powered with the 2500 mah LiPo battery and a 2w Voltaic solar panel and I was monitoring battery life when I saw the sudden drop in voltage.
I am using a XBEE S6B wifi module for telemetery.
Current draw on the battery is between 100ma and 120ma when reading sensors and transmitting
Current draw is not measurable when…[Read more]
This will probably be a question for Shannon since it is hardware related but I have a Mayfly 0.5b I purchased earlier this year and it started sending data showing a low LiPo battery voltage (3.4v instead of 3.9v). This board has only been used for software development but I was getting ready to deploy it.
I verified the battery is indeed…[Read more]
@dave-eiriksson Those are the same settings I have in my XBee S6B. I attached screen shots below of my settings from XCTU (I deleted my personal network information). I have found by watching the diagnostics in the serial monitor that the S6B doesn’t connect very reliably to wifi to POST after making changes and uploading. Sometimes it requires…[Read more]
@srgdamiano – You have done some good work on developing/improving the ModularSensors library. After struggling to get the “logging_to_EnviroDIY” sketch to upload consistently to EnviroDIY portal, I have found the ModularSensors library to run much better with less HTTP POST timeouts. Before I switched I ended up heavily modifying the older exa…[Read more]
No, you have to set the IP address and port in the XBee WiFi module. I am using some code in the Mayfly to do a DNS lookup and set the IP address automatically using Command Mode on bootup in case the IP changes. I think it came from the original logging sketch you wrote up Anthony
