Meter drops to 0W

Post by PindaKaas.net » Mon Jun 15, 2015 2:04 pm

Hi there,

I did a fresh install of the latest 123solar and aurora com. driver (the previous setup of 123solar stopped working out of nothing).

Unfortunately there's are problem, now I can describe it but I made a video to make it clear. Look at the meter and the data below on the right side of the screen from 0:18

This is a repeating process

Anyone who can help me please ?

Hi,
It's because your live data is too old (30 seconds), you need to adjust your com. options to pool faster and reliably.

aurora is your communication application. Read the README, adjust the options (eg -Y, -l ..) :roll:

@PindaKaas.net

you can try to change the speed of the serial port to 9600 in this way
edit this file

nano rc.local and add this instruction

the line that you have to add is in bold

#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

# Print the IP address
_IP=$(hostname -I) || true
if [ "$_IP" ]; then
printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP"
fi
stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 9600
exit 0
