Hi. Here’s the case. Recently I purchased some sensors from NCD.
At first, I am using the Wireless USB Modem to receive data. It’s good. So far a few sensors have been tried and data could be shown up on the Alpha Station - Ver 126.96.36.199, except Asset Monitor Sensor. The Alpha Station could discover the asset monitor but data field is nothing. For this asset monitor, I need to download another ncd.io Wireless Asset Monitor.exe to connect and check if everything is working well. Good. The sensor is working fine. (No idea why is that.)
And then I switch on the Azure gateway aside with the USB Modem. Some of the sensor data couldn’t reach Device Twin but Alpha Station. After numerous attempt, I decided to update the firmware of the gateway, create a new DeviceID & connectionString and update the connectionString to the gateway. It proves the data of the sensor below couldn’t reach DeviceTwin.
Industrial IoT Wireless Tilt And Inclinometer Sensor
IoT Long Range Wireless Pulse Frequency Meter
From my observation, the Azure Device Twin could allow 7 sensors to reach (From what I’ve got and tested).
IoT Long Range Wireless Accelerometer Gyro Magneto & Temperature Sensor
IoT Long Range Wireless One Channel Counter Transmitter
IoT Long Range Wireless Environmental Temperature Humidity Pressure Air Quality Sensor
IoT Long Range Wireless Asset Monitor Sensor
Industrial IoT Wireless Linear Displacement Sensor
2 Channel Industrial IoT Wireless Thermocouple Temperature Sensor
2 Channel Industrial IoT Long Range Wireless 4-20mA Current Receiver
I read a post but I am not sure if my case is similar to it (Link)
Thanks. Please update me further when it is ready. Appreciated your kind support.
May I have the list of what devices currently have not been supported so I could be aware of beforehand next time when I am about to purchase some sensors to try?
For ‘IoT Long Range Wireless Pulse Frequency Meter’, I am using Alpha Station in parallel and it receives the data well however not the same case on Device Twin. I will conduct the whole setup again next week and take a video to show you what’s going on if the result still holds the same.
I am using Alpha Station in parallel and it receives the data well however not the same case on Device Twin. I power up another sensor and show you the Device Twin is working fine and able to show that sensor readings.
I just published update 1.0.12 for the Azure Gateway to correct handling for the Tilt sensor. It seems the conversion error was an unsigned int instead of a signed int for the sensor parsing. This is the updated conversion function for the tilt sensor:
