5.2 Process of measurement

When the sensor sampling time interval is reached, for example 2 minutes, the node will wake up and switch ON the power supply to supply the energy to external sensor to start the measurement. Depends on the type and characteristic of external sensor, the sensor will take a certain time to finish the measurement.

For example, the measurement time is 200mS, after this time, the node will read the value of sensor using I2C, node will switch OFF power supply to external sensor to save energy.

Once reading the sensor value, the raw data is X, it can be scaled to any engineering value by the following formula:

Y = aX + b

Where

X: the raw value from sensor

Y: the calculated value for parameter 1's value or parameter 2's value

a: constant (default value is 1)

b: constant (default value is 0)

 

So, if there is no user setting for a and b ==> Y = X

The Y value will be compared with Lo and Hi threshold.

 

Status bytes of sensor Node

  • Hi-Byte is error code
Error code Description

Logic status of parameters

  • Hi-Byte is Logic status of parameter 1
    • If parameter 1's value > high threshold 1 => Hi-Byte of Logic status = 1
    • If parameter 1's value < low threshold 1 => Hi-Byte of Logic status = 0
    • If parameter 1 is digital => Hi-Byte of Logic status = parameter 1's value
    • Timer up 1 = (Total time when Hi-Byte of Logic status = 1)
    • Timer down 1 = (Total time when Hi-Byte of Logic status = 0)
    • RisingEdge counter 1 = (Counter value when Hi-Byte of Logic status changes from 0 to 1)
    • FallingEdge counter 1 = (Counter value when Hi-Byte of Logic status changes from 1 to 0)
  • Lo-Byte is Logic status of parameter 2
    • If parameter 2's value > high threshold 2 => Lo-Byte of Logic status = 1
    • If parameter 2's value < low threshold 2 => Lo-Byte of Logic status = 0
    • If parameter 2 is digital => Lo-Byte of Logic status = parameter 2's value
    • Timer up 2 = (Total time when Lo-Byte of Logic status = 1)
    • Timer down 2 = (Total time when Lo-Byte of Logic status = 0)
    • RisingEdge counter 2 = (Counter value when Lo-Byte of Logic status changes from 0 to 1)
    • FallingEdge counter 2 = (Counter value when Lo-Byte of Logic status changes from 1 to 0)

5.4 Add sensors node to Co-ordinator WS433-CL

5.4.1 Add Sensor Node ID automatically
WS433-CL-H12.png WS433-CL-H18.png

Step 1: After supplying power the Co-ordinator via M12 connector, the Node ID must be registered within the first 5 minutes, up to 40 WS.

Step 2: Bring the wireless sensor closer to the Co-ordinator's antenna then take off the wireless sensor battery, wait for 5s then insert the battery again. If:

  • Buzzer plays 1 peep sound, LED blink 1 time, that means registering Node ID on Co-ordinator successfully.
  • Buzzer plays 2 peep sounds, LED blink 2 times, that this Node ID is already registered.

If you do not hear the "Peep" sound, please disconnect the power the co-ordinator, wait a few minute and try again.

Node id added in this way will be written to the smallest node_id_n address which is = 0.

Set Rssi_threshold (see RF MODE CONFIG (in the Modbus Memmap of WS433-CL-FW_V1.9), default -25): The case if Co-ordinator is on high position and need to add node sensor. We set the sensor as close as possible and set the Rssi_threshold to -80, -90 or -100 to increase the sensitivity to allow WS433-CL-04 can add sensors at a longer distance. After that, perform 2 steps of adding sensors and then reset Rssi_threshold = -25.

Enb_auto_add_sensors configuration (see RF MODE CONFIG (in the Modbus Memmap of WS433-CL-FW_V1.9)): In case you do not want to turn off the power WS433-CL, you can set Enb_auto_add_sensors = 1, this way we have 5 minutes to add nodes (add up to 40 nodes) . After 5 minutes Enb_auto_add_sensors will automatically = 0.

          • Reconfigure the led light function exactly as instructed.
          2 Wireless sensor not connected to co-ordinator
          • No power supply.
          • The configuration function of the RF data rate is incorrect.
          • Check that the battery is empty or not installed correctly.
          • Reconfigure the RF data rate with the button according to the instructions.
          3 The parameter 1 and 2 both show values = 0, while the data status is normal (running from 0..5)
          • The wireless sensor has been exchanged sensor probe but it has not been reset yet!
          • Please take out the battery for 20s then install it again to reset the wireless sensor to allow it to recognise the new sensor probe!
