Re: Mobile Z-Uno and connection loss

I have to say... I live in a small house... it won't be a good test. I have a small garden and I only have one "weak spot", meaning a place that does not have a direct connection to my controller. So it is not a good test, my device will find out the additional route in the garden and that's it. Sor...

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

The battery pin and the 3.3 V pin are the same. That is where you connect your 3.3 V supply. No voltage will appear on the 5 V or the V ext pins. One thing you might want to consider is this: what happens if you connect USB (to flash, to experiment) and your external 3.3 V at the same time, but your...

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

Yes, everything on your Z-Uno gets power from the 3 V pin.

Re: Send multiple values at once

In Indigo, when changing associations, do you see a distinction between "single channel" and "multi channel"? PoltoS wants you to check if your controller "1" was listed under "single". If it was, please remove it and add it under "multi". On Fibaro, you see two colums, one marked S and one marked M.

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

I have checked it, it is OK to supply power to the 5 V pin, the 5 -> 3 V regulator only adds 12 uA on my board at room temperature. No need to remove R12, it is not there to "squeeze out some uA". By removing R12 you disconnect the 3 V regulator from the 3 V pin and the battery. So it no longer can ...

Re: Mobile Z-Uno and connection loss

I moved my Z-Uno to a spot with no direct connection to the controller... It did not cause any issues with my network. The test is not very scientific. I can do a better test, if you want me to do that, but it takes some time and a really careful setup... I can activate my Z-Sniffer and check if the...

Re: Send multiple values at once

I ran a test sketch based on your info (code below) on my Z-Uno 2.1.1 and Z-Way controller and it works as expected. Both light levels (one single channel and one multi channel) update every 10 s. All three wind values (one single channel and 2 multi channel) update at the same time every 30 s. Also...

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

Wait a second, I am not sure about the current on the 5 V regulator, I am not sure if it does not back-feed the NCP1117... Let me check that.

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

You could remove R12 to squeeze out some uA but it will be pretty good if you power the Z-Uno's 3.3 V or even the 5 V is OK. The 5->3.3 regulator has low quiscent current.

Re: Z-Uno battery powered at 18V

I agree. Also, from the top of my head, that 5 V regulator uses 5 - 10 mA. Is that OK for your application? On the other hand, the 3.3 V domain can go to nearly zero current...
