V3 Vibration Sensor Plus not providing sensor data on Node Red


I have got my ncd V3 vibration sensor plus and Industrial computing edge gateway interfaced like the below image:


However, as I plug the sensor onto a running motor for vibration signatures. I am not able to receive any data. I keep on receiving debug messages approximately every 30 seconds from the debug node “debug1” which is connected to the gateway. What could be the problem with the sensor debug node? Why can’t my sensor provide me with data ???

See the picture below of what I mean:

I also noticed as I turned off my motor where the vibration sensor was attached to it, I got this message as the image below:

I have tried many strategies but nothing seems to be working. I also noticed on Node-Red’s manage palette @ncd-io/node-red-enterprise-sensors request for an update to 0.1.15. However, I am getting an error message when I try to update.

Please advise what should I do about these issues.

Hi @krish15, could you check if the board to board connector is making a good connection and check and see if any pins are bent.

And also the M12 connector.

I think, looks like, that’s a problem of your Industrial computing edge gateway date.

Is your gateway already connected to the internet?

Hi, yes the gateway is connected to the internet through my university’s ethernet. The university internet must have some regulations and firewalls, could that be the issue ??

Hi, I had checked all those earlier, I’ll just check again.

can you share a picture of the sensor box inside ?

Hi Anil,

I think the sensor is functioning properly now. It felt like one of the group of pins was loose as per the image below:

Seems to be fixed now. Thank you for your assistance.
