PR55-61PM Sample on demand

Hi, I’m starting using NCD products and I’m searching how I can request a sample from the sensors without waiting for the sample interval. Is it possible to trigger a sample request manually for immediate data collection?

Hi David,

In order for these devices to be battery powered they must sleep. While asleep it is not possible for them to receive data/commands. For this reason it is not possible to manually request a reading, they only transmit on interval.

Thank you,

Hi Travis, If I do not need to run on batteries, I guess I can change this setting at least momentarily? Otherwise, I would deal with the 1 minute interval in Node-red, but It is not available/not working depending on the NCD node versions I tried. I’m using @ncd-io/node-red-enterprise-sensors. Thank you.

The default minimum interval is 5 min.

if you need 1 min interval please use this firmware

Ok, thanks. I’ll give it a try.
