[Pro2 PLUS] Rx Time & Indoor Data Issues
#1
My station is almost complete! The Tx and Rx are communicating perfectly.

However, I'm having some issues with my Rx unit. I cannot get the unit to read the pressure, temperature, or humidity from my BME280 sensor, all values are displayed as zero.  

In addition, I can not get the time/date to sync. I'm not sure if these issues are related or not. I've already tried deleting and re-downloading the libraries. 

I do not have much experience with Arduino programming. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi,

For now, the first thing to verify is your AVR boards version.

Arduino IDE -> Tools -> Board: -> Boards Manager:

[Image: ide187.jpg]

Then check the Arduino AVR Boards version. If it is greater than 1.6.21, revert it back to v1.6.21 and program again both RX and TX boards.

If this not solve the problem, posting your Config_Options.h file may also help me to try to help you.
Thank you.

Hi Werk,

Thank you for your help. I was running the wrong AVR Boards version. Changing this to 1.6.21 fixed the time issue, but not the BME280 issue. I've checked the the supply voltage for the senor and it is correct. The senor seems to be getting warm to the touch when plugged in. Is this normal? See my Config_Options.h file below.

Thanks,

Adam

Hi Adam,

Good to know that one issue is solved, so lets now look to the BME280.

First, be sure you are using the library provided with the WeatherDuino software package. There is a newer version available on the Internet that isn't compatible with current WeatherDuino software.

I never noticed that the BME280 sensor becomes warm when powered, and it should not happen.

Do you have a picture of your BME280 sensor module?

Thank you

I checked on the library, it is correct. Also, I ran the I2C scanner and the sensor is not being picked up.

I tested the sensor using the BME280_Test program by plugging it directly into my Mega2560. The sensor was still not recognized. I'm quite confident that it is an actual BME280, not a BMP, because it has the correct markings. However, it is a cheap version from china. Do you think it is safe to say that it is a faulty sensor?

Thanks,

Adam

If your I2C scanner didn't find it and it's getting warm, I would agree that it is faulty.

Hello Adam,

Since it is not detected by the I2C Scanner utility, I think it's safe to conclude that the sensor probably is faulty.
Mainly I also use use those type of sensor modules bought on China, up to now I as been lucky... never got one faulty.

Perhaps its time to order another one, or better two of them... from different sellers.

Thanks,

Thanks guys,

I will order a new one and report back. Are the 4 pin senors the best option? Some higher quality companies like Adafruit sell the sensor but they seem to be mostly 6 pins.

There are also Chinese versions with 6 pins

The two extra pins aren't used with WeatherDuino.
