Greetings,

I re-read the all posting of 'ductuanhoang' and I am not so sure the solution of the modes was the solution to his problem.
Is there any chance to ask to him.

The similarity is in the reading -1000 NTU but the solution seems to hover more around a connectivity problem (which seems to be close to mine) rather than a software configuration.

I have few specific questions you may help me to respond:

- The sensor is connect to port F (that is a fact)
- Has ever a Digital Turbidity sensor - RS 485/SDI 12 been tested on a smart water Libelium
- Is the Libelium I was delivered capable to read/use that sensor;
- The sensor return -1000 and that error is not debugged anywhere.

I have the impression that the sensor is not even powered. Is the Smart water capable to power the sensor via the Port F.

What I find a little intriguing is while all the sensors port are managed by the basic sensor the turbidity has a special .cpp and .h

So I need to understand at the end if I have to return the sensor to the provider or I can fix it myself by means your support.

What is a little frustrating is that either I am the only one who has the problem or there are few sensors like mine installed on the libelium.

I would really really appreciate if I can get some support on the above questions and the previous request.
- mapping of the port F electrical connection.

I would also be curious if you have any other such F + turbidity sensor (the one mentioned) installed with any of your customer.

I really believe you have great technology so I would be happy to solve this issue and look at the next step.

(possibly being more Libelium)

Thanks in advance

Giancarlo

Hi,

Do you have the turbidity sensor provided by Libelium or do you have other sensor?

All our sensors are tested before sending them to the customer to ensure their functionality. We really think that many customers have turbidity sensors and we don't remember hardware problems with this sensor.

About this sensor has its own libraries, it isn't uncommon, many sensors have their own libraries. It is a way to simplify programming.

The Smart Water is capable to power the turbidity sensor through the socket F, it is the way to read the sensor, always it is connected to that socket.

Hello the sensor is

http://www.ponsel.fr/cbx/_ftp/ficheprod ... aq.pdf.pdf

I m checking if it was supplied by you.
At any rate the waspmote library is the standard or there is a need for a particular .h and .cpp file

I m using the API v028

Thanks in advance

Hi,

If you are using the device provided by Libelium the sensor should work with the last library we send you and the example code.

Greetings Libelium

Problem Solved

Using API v028 during the compilation I got a deprecated warning which I didn't considered critical.
In one of your posting another user described a similar problem with the temperature sensor PT1000 (Port F). More in details the fact that with the sensor connect or disconnected he got about the same reading.

The advise of your engineer given the sensor type was to reinstall the version v011 of the API.
That seemed to work for him.
So I download the V011 and installed. It worked!!!!
Now I reinstalled the V027 just for the sake of trying and it is still working.
I replaced it with the v028 and nothing is working.

I guess the v028 has a problem with the Smarwater Turbidity sensor.

Forum helps

Cheers

Hi Giancarlo,

Glad to hear that you solved the issue! :D

We are developing a new library for the turbidity sensor that will be released in the next API.

Problem solved

the latest IDE (1.6) and API library v28 are not working well with the turbity sensors.
I used IDE 1.5 and API 2.5 or 2.7 and the sensor was read by the libelium.

Some work for Libelium engineers

Cheers
Giancarlo

Glad to hear that the problem was solved! :D

You can also try to use the last API v029, which should work.

Hi

In version 5 ide 027 the sensor works
In version 6 API 30 the sensor is not working

I hope it would hav worked with the new
Library ;
From API 27 to 30 the name of the sensor call changed;

If I use the example provided it works on 5 and not in 6

Any help

Hi,

Could you please share with us the output through the serial monitor with both codes?

Regards
