mc-Module / Re: Max Sensor Power Consumption
« on: February 21, 2017, 03:49:42 pm »
Thanks for the feeback but 5 ma is not enough. I might be able to go below 10 ma (around 8 ma)

Would it be possible to use 2 or 3 pins of the Mcmodule 110 in parallel to support the max of 10 ma. Would need this power only for a couple of seconds befor switching the sensor Off.

mc-Module / Max Sensor Power Consumption

What is the max power I can draw from a Mcmodule 110 "high" digital pin when the sensor is connected to external battery of 3.3 - 3.5 V. The sensor I have in mind would pull a max 15mA when in use.

There is No serial for the McDongle.

* You need to use the serial of a module (or the Gateway if you are updating that one).
* Remove battery from module
* press search device
* apply battery

...if all is correct it will find your module and info is displayed...

* update the device with proper firmware

mc-Module / Re: Possible range between McModule - McGateway
« on: August 14, 2016, 03:36:37 am »
I would also be interested in how we can increase the range of the McGateway with an external Antenna (hack). Currently the range is limited to 5 - 10 meters with one "small" wall in between. I did some testing and by moving the McGateway just a couple of cm's can make already a big difference in the RSSI values (changes of +/- 10 dB)

On the internet there are some hacks with BT dongles. They cut-off the internal Antenna and add a copper wire of 3 or 12 cm's. Would that als work for the McGateway?

mc-Module / Re: Red LED blinks without reference in code

I believe I am seeing a similar behaviour. I was reading the temperature and publishing this to MQTT with an interval of 20 seconds. The result was a very inconsistent publishing of the modules and many red LED flashes. After I increased the publishing interval to 5 minutes the modules seem to behave normal. I am using also the latest sofware versions.

That we have the latest versions is clear but this wasn't that obvious this time. When I downloaded 359 the release note was saying 30th june. And if this was indeed correct I had the latest version of Mc Studio.

In another thread it was mentioned that this 30 th june was incorrect and has now be changed to 15 July. At the time of the download I wasn't aware of that fact.

Upgrading Mc Studio to the latest version did solve the issue with version 359.

Will now have to wait and see if the initial problem is also solved with the new SW version. (Mc Module stopping with publishing after a certain time)

No programs are working with the 359 version. Even the simple blinky program doesn't run (it does run in debug mode) I have tried re-uploading the 359 version twice without succes.

I will try upgrading another Module.

MC gateway was already on latest version 6-360 / 7-405.

Downgrade the Mc Module back to 7-358 and all is working again.
So I believe there is something wrong with version 7-359 for the Mc Module

See screenshots of version I have now loaded (downgraded back to version 7-358 for the Mc Module)

Not sure why the 7 - 359 version doesn't work. Any clue??

Gateway is hardwired.  I believed all software was the latest version but it wasn't. The Mc Module was stil on version 358. I have now updated to version 359 but that created another problem.

In debug mode it workes fine and publishes to the broker. However as soon as I load the program into the module it doesn't publish any more.
To make sure that the program was working I added a blinking LED in the loop. That was also NOT working when I load it in the device. So I tried the simple program "blinking LED". Also this was not working when loading on to the module (all was working fine in debug mode)

I have reloaded the .359 software but still nog go (although it is working in debug mode) It seems that something is wrong with version .359.
I will do some further testing or revert back to the older SW version for the Mc Module.

mc-Module / Module MC 110 stops publishing to MQTT broker.
« on: July 16, 2016, 04:10:00 am »
I have a Module set-up which publishes the temperature to a MQTT broker (installed on my own server) every 5 minutes. Publishing stops completely every 1 or 2 days. When I remove the battery from the module and install it again it starts working again.

I also want to mention that during the day that it is working it sometimes skips one or two publishing moments (so it takes 10 to 15 minutes for the next update, instead of the 5 minutes)

I have the latest firmware installed on the module/MC gateway and only 1 module is connected to the gateway.

Any ideas what is causing this?

You could try power cycling the MC gateway. I had a similar problem with publishing to a broker via MQTT (not publishing).
After a powercycle of the MC gateway it suddenly started working.

Yes I am using a non English version and the DLL is on the system.

I have solved it bij attaching the McDongle the first time to this new system. By doing that it was loading some kind of driver (McBoot?) and after that all problems were solved. So there seems to be some kind of additional driver needed that gets loaded by attaching the Mcdongle.

Anyway it is solved now.

I did do a reboot but that didn't help. Also tried the latest drivers but also no succes.

Any other recommendation you might have (I am using the Surface Pro 4)
