Ok turning the cable 180º around it does work!
In my case, the brand label up.
So, now I'm curious what happened to the whole "it doesn't matter which way you plug your cable in" thing from USB-C here.
You should charge your battery to full. Do you tried to calibrate your sensor?
Press and hold the right C key to start the machine, and release the key after hearing the "drip" sound. The sensor will enter the calibration setting, and keep the host horizontal and still. After 3 seconds, the sensor calibration is completed, and it will automatically enter the balance mode after the calibration is completed.If you found that Bala cannot keep balance during use, it can be solved by trying to calibrate the sensor.
@aehiot said in RS485T and ACSOCKET and 120 OHM RESISTOR:
As I understand 120 Ohm terminated resistor for RS485 bus will be used only in one single end of the bus. I wonder if RS485T integrate R120 ohm and we connect many of them together, the data might be incorrect. I test with AC Plug if I don't use the RS485T the RX response is correct as in attached picture. After testing AC Socket for a while I found that if there is only one 120 Ohm terminate resistor on the bus, sometimes the Rx response is incorrect.
Anyone face the same problem?
I asked about this before but have been too busy to do any test with the 485 units.
If you are interested in continuing test, please let us know.
Also please consider creating a project log in hackster.io and record you discoveries.
@world101 said in How to control lots of Neopixel:
WLED (https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED) is a really great and easy way to control lots of neopixels. The author has done an awesome job and there are so many features supported now. I used it this past Christmas season to control 800 of the WS2811 string LEDs on the exterior of my home.
It runs on the ESP8266 and ESP32, but I haven’t seen anyone using an m5stack product as a controller yet. The most common platform used is the nodeMCU which is based on the ESP8266.
I only started trying to port WLED to the m5stack yesterday (I was inspired by this thread), but since I’m new to PlatformIO and I’m a weak programmer, I’m running into build/compile issues. I’ll let you know if I make any progress, but you could also look into the nodeMCU if you want something running quickly.
If there was a Micropython lib then i would be interested in testing.
I just tried with another cable: the microcontroller works with a very short cable or from a powered hub. Basically it reboots because of a brown-out due to a power consumption that is at the limit of what a plain usb port can deliver.
I'm glad I haven't (completely) lost my mind.
I haven't had any progress with this issue besides creating a workaround with a Proto and some Grove ports- assembling a sort of..."Port Board." It certainly isn't pretty, but here's a pic for fun:
It's 2 "Port B"s - to accommodate devices that want GP26, GP36, or BOTH. And a simple male header to Serial2. (16/17)
I've had some thoughts on other things to try (mostly in configuration or digging deeper into M5 and ESP32 libraries), but have been busy with another project that requires much smaller hardware. If you (or anyone) find something that in any way changes this functionality, please post.
All info helps.
Hello, Did you end up finding a solution ? This is my issue and I think it may be related :
Hello, I am trying to integrate a RTC module (DS3231). It works fine as long as I don't use the M5Stack library. As soon as I combine M5.begin() with Wire.begin() there seems to be a conflict. Scanning I2C reveals 2 devices :
0x57 - M5 LCD ?
0x68 - RTC Module DS3231
Any clue as to what is going wrong ? What PINS are used by the LCD ? I suppose 21 (SDA) and 18 (SCL) ?
