    No, the Meter Group sensor will not work with Modular Sensors if its address is set to ‘0’.  When it’s set to ‘0’, the data string is not in proper SDI12 delimeted format and Modular Sensors won’t be able to see anything.  Plus, the only way to get it to take multiple readings would be to turn the sensor power off and back on each time you want to take a reading, and use a Serial parsing code to capture the data instead of Modular Sensors SDI12 libraries.

    So in order to use Modular Sensors code using SDI12 commands with a Meter Group sensor, you MUST change the channel to something other than ‘0’.
