Hope you can help with a problem I have using Enviromon. I'm using the latest version of software - v 5.21.1. I have an EL005 set up with an EL001, using an EL015 temperature sensor on channel 1.
I have connected the logger to the PC using the Pico serial to USB lead. All the lights are indicating data is transferring OK, and the com port is correct.
I have run the logload and that works OK. I have connected up the EL005 and the EL001, with the EL015, and the light appears on the EL001 to run very fast, but there are breaks when no lights show on the converter, for sometimes up to 5 minutes, and then the continual flashing starts gain. It also at times just shows a single light on, rather than continual flashing, but this only lasts a second.
I have set up the converter with the address written on the box - 11, and put the EL015 in channel 1, and set that up also in the sensor list. If I ran the autoconfigure, it reports it has run successfully, but does not add an entry in the table, so I have to manually add the converter and channel details.
I set the software to program the EL005, and this reports a successful operation, and asks the software is restarted. When I restart, the measures for the EL005 internal channels are appearing OK - that is the internal battery voltage and mains power, but the temperature from the converter EL001, doesn't show up in the data table. I have checked the converter serial number and channel, and they are set correctly. The lights on the EL001 converter are flashing throughout, so there is clearly a connection being made, from the EL005.
When I look at the events log, it reports "converter fail".
When I run change converter address, it reports - "No converters found"
However, the only measures the enviromon software seems to capture are the internal channels on the EL005.
I have just a single network cable between the EL005 and EL001, and this is the 6 way, with connections on the middle 4 pins. I've checked everything over, but cannot seem to get any readings from the EL001, even though it appears to be active. Can you suggest how I can check that the converter has been programmed correctly, and if any data is being supplied to the EL005 from the EL001, or explain why I am not getting any temperature readings.
