I’m looking for troubleshooting help setting up the 8-Channel DC Current Monitor board with Node-Red.
I’m having trouble setting up the Node-red module for the 8-Channel DC Current Monitor. I’m only getting readings for 2 channels at a time and always the highest and lowest number (e.g. if I set channels 2,3,4,7,8 to single ended mode, it will only include a reading for channel 2 and 8 in the mes.payload). No matter how I configure the node,
There appears to be several things wrong with the node:
- Incorrect channel information (say ch2 sensor reading) will come out of the incorrect outputs (e.g. Channel_2 reading will come out of the channel 4 port) when the “Output all channels” check box is selected.
- Only Two channel readings are ever included in the message payload.
- A0 and A1 jumpers appear to be flipped on the device addressing (not sure if this is an issue with the node or a defect on the PCB silk screen).
Cannot determine if this is an issue with the node or my particular node.js setup. I did have trouble installing the ADS7828 node module. I would like to verify that it was installed properly if possible first.
Also, I cannot seem to find any documentation outside of the node info tab - is there any documentation for the Node-Red utility that NCD can forward to me?
