Re: HX711 in use

Hi Just a quick update. Using batteries to power an ESP32, the module and the screened load cell, but still with jumpers, stability improved again. Powered by a PSU I have to shift > 10 to get stability but on batteries it's >7 and that is without any cool averaging. I need to knock up a test frame ...

Re: Console User Input TAB desappering !

Hi

Are both versions up to date (both running latest versions)?

A few minor Console issues were reported in early releases, that were subsequently resolved in the updates.

Hope this helps,

Regards

Re: Old programming boards not recognised by flowcode v4 and v9

Hi PPP is what actually programs the chip, and was superseded by mLoader from V7 (I think). The drivers are only a few MB in size and can easily be emailed, however I would need someone in Matrix to OK first as I'm unsure if I am allowed to distribute. If you have the v4 CD they should be on that. I...

Re: Old programming boards not recognised by flowcode v4 and v9

Hi FC9 works fine with my EB006 on W7/8.1 so I'm guessing it may be a driver issue rather than FC itself. Website apparently only provides drivers for EB2 boards. I assume you still have the original USB drivers for the boards? If not I probably have a copy (if I'm allowed to share) but you might ne...

Re: Can an App Developer project replace using Sinric

Hi You might want to have a look at IFTTT / ThingSpeak / ThingsBoard and other similar services. Some can be hosted locally (e.g. on a Pi or PC etc). They can make interfacing quite easy as many can be easily interfaced with Echo etc. It isn't difficult at all to get 8266's (or ESP32s) to talk to th...

Re: Can an App Developer project replace using Sinric

Hi Further to Ben's reply above, what features do you need? Sinric allows control from phones, PCs, Amazon Echo and such like. Whilst all of this is possible to create you might be better off interfacing with existing 3rd party services. For example you could have your modules connect to an MQTT bro...

Re: HX711 in use

Hi Stefan I sincerely doubt if I would need 24-bit for anything running at 5v or less :) I've now ordered up a small set of calibrated weights to test further. Whilst these only cover up to 500g they do make my target weight of xyz grams. As long as this value (and multiples thereof) are read consis...

Re: SIM 800L and MQTT component

Hi Ben

That's why I asked if it was too early to write to Santa :)

Thanks for detailing what the Network components gets up to and I believe the 800 can also do this, but I need to check as it was a few weeks since I last read up on it.

I will revisit once I get a bit of time.

Re: HX711 in use

Hi Thanks for the reply and suggestions. My module is similar to the Sparkfun one and I believe is quite generic, available from many sources. I was a bit dubious of what I'd get for the price I paid, but..... The cell it came with is rated at 20Kg but I doubt it would take anything like that in the...
