      Just wondering if there is a date on Mayfly Availability. ?

      https://www.envirodiy.org/product/envirodiy-mayfly-data-logger-pack-of-5/ says out of stock.

      Much appreciate an approximate date, though I realize there is a world wide shortage of some components.

      The current estimate is that we’ll receive a big shipment in about a month, so early August we’ll be able to restock the shop and Amazon.  The worsening electronics supply shortage caused me to have to make some changes to the Mayfly design based on component availability, and that delayed the fabrication of new boards until we could fully test everything.  I’ll post more information about the upcoming changes and improvements to the board and our new accessories in a few weeks.

      Many thanks for the heads up on provisional dates. It helps with planning.

      Its painful dealing with components that have become unavailable and locate comparables – I had to do that with the Modbus board.

      In case its of interest, I have a method of writing to the onboard EEPROM, and use it to track the revision of the board in the data file .csv on the uSD.      https://github.com/neilh10/ModularSensors/wiki/Hw-Mayfly-config-EEPROM

      I’ve had some people ask me how to get hold of boards.
      Just wondering, I know there has been a worldwide shortage of some parts, but is there any update of when the boards might be available? many thanks

      New Mayfly boards and cool new accessories will be here very shortly, still waiting for the shipment, and then we’ll need time to turn things around and get the shop restocked, but it should be very soon.  We’ll be making a blog post soon about all the updates to the hardware and accessories in about a week or so, and then things should be ready for purchase shortly after that.

      Hello @shicks.  Just wondering if you can give any insight as to the process, when you think you might be able to tell us about what the new revision looks like, or possibly any visibility on when it might be available, and the process gates you are going through.  I realize some times this is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string, and happy to help out if I can.     I’m just doing a scope of work, as part of California Wildlands Conservation board grant, and talking about using the Mayfly, and saying its not available right now  and its expected to be available shortly. Many thanks for any insights.

      The shipment arrived a few days ago, I’ll be documenting the new hardware and finishing the changes to the website later this week and hopefully have them available in the shop next week.

      Just wondering any visibility on a timeline for new Mayfly, and what the new goodies are :).

      I am looking at recommending it in an SSU Engineering project.

      The first projection on availability was early August,  just wondering if there is anything that can be shared about the difficulties in them becoming available. I know some of these issues are challenging, and I appreciate tested boards,  visibility really helps in planning projects and alternatives. Many thanks.

      The shipment of new boards and accessories arrived 3 weeks ago.  I began testing the products and making the necessary changes to the code and documentation, but then our area was hit by the remnants of Hurricane Ida, several dozen of our stream monitoring stations were located on rivers that saw flood events greater than anything that’s happened in over 100 years.  The good new is that we got some great data and almost all of the stations survived, however many of them needed maintenance visits or repairs, so I’ve been busy with those, in addition to getting the new products ready for release.

      I’ve completed the field testing of the new Mayfly board, the new LTE cell board, and few of the other new accessories.  I’ll be updating documentation and the website this week, and we’re aiming for an October 1 release date.

      Good to hear that the gauges survived, and delivered the data.!!

      Many thanks for the refresh on status  and  (target) date :). Very helpful.
