Hi, I am looking to use a CR1000 and AM 16/32 multilplexer to us 30 EC5 sensors. I used shortcut to create a program but the readings I am getting aren't good (same in air and in soil).
1H to Com Odd L
1L to Com Even H
Ground to Com Ground
2H to Com Even L
VX1 to Com Odd H
G to G
12V to 12V
C4 to Clk
C5 to Res
sensor 2: white: 1H
Sensor 3 white: 1H, red: 2L, bare: ground
And so on with the sensors
Program as follows:
'Created by Short Cut (3.1)
'Declare Variables and Units
Units PTemp_C=Deg C
'Define Data Tables
'Default Datalogger Battery Voltage measurement 'BattV'
'Default Wiring Panel Temperature measurement 'PTemp_C'
'Turn AM16/32 Multiplexer On
'Switch to next AM16/32 Multiplexer channel
'ECHO Probe EC-5 measurement VW on the AM16/32 Multiplexer
'Turn AM16/32 Multiplexer Off
'Call Data Tables and Store Data
I tried removing the multiplier and offset to get a voltage reading to check my sensors are working but that did not work.
1) What command can I use to get voltage readings?
2) Any ideas why the program might not be working
Thanks in advance
Program not working..
Where are you looking for the EC5 sensor readings?
You need to look into the 'Public' Table on the 'Connect' Screen to see them, should change every 1 minute.
Your Table2 does not log any value besides the logger supply voltage..
Table2 also runs not very often.. like once a day only?
Testing of a single EC5 directly on CR1000 (with your multiplexer code = checking your multiplexer code):
White (EC5 sensing output?): 1H
Red (EC5 power input?): VX1
Bare (EC5 GND for signal + power?): Analog Ground
Use your code.. should give you the same readings for all values in VW(30). Look for them in the 'Public' table when you are connected to the logger.
Testing of a single EC5 directly on CR1000 (no multiplexer code = checking sensor working):
Connect as above..
Change code to this:
Public VW 'Define Data Tables DataTable(_1min,True,-1) DataInterval(0,5,Min,10) Average (1,VW,IEEE4,False) EndTable 'Main Program BeginProg 'Main Scan Scan(1,Min,1,0) BrHalf(VW,1,mV2500,1,1,3,2500,False,10000,_60Hz,2.975,-0.4) CallTable Table2 NextScan EndProg
If you got Loggernet, you will have CRbasic .. open your code in that and if you need any help with a command, use the right mouse button on it (click).
It will give you an easy to use field table for the command and a button for further help/examples.
PS: look on the support pages for Loggernet Patches.. v4.7 is the latest. Download and install.
Then also grab the latest firmware for the CR1000 - version v32.05 is available - and install it into CRbasic and then flash your CR1000 with it. Just in case you deal with some bug from some old firmware version.. I had that 2 weeks ago with a CR800 where a port status reacted inverted and an upgrade from v28 to v32 solved that...
