Last night, my system went down because of battery exhaustion. I let it in the sun all day to see if it would wake up again. Sun is not too common here (you know, when they tell you to go where the sun does not shine? That's here), so when I got home and the system was still down, I was not too worried yet... I hooked up and external power to the external power jack on the sunair board. The mini usb input. The red led went on, but nothing happened yet... Should the system power up immediately, or is it now charging the battery through external power and will it wait for the battery to be charged before powering up?
LIPO_Battery Bus Voltage: 3.86 V LIPO_Battery Shunt Voltage: -25.52 mV LIPO_Battery Load Voltage: 3.83 V LIPO_Battery Current 1: -255.20 mA Battery Power 1: -0.98 W Current 1 beeing negative means the battery is getting power in stead of giving?
Solar Cell Bus Voltage 2: 4.82 V Solar Cell Shunt Voltage 2: -52.64 mV Solar Cell Load Voltage 2: 4.77 V Solar Cell Current 2: 526.40 mA Solar Cell Power 2: 2.51 W Current 2 beeing 526 means the sun is doing allright?
Output Bus Voltage 3: 4.96 V Output Shunt Voltage 3: 20.88 mV Output Load Voltage 3: 4.96 V Output Current 3: 208.80 mA Output Power 3: 1.04 W
Current 3 is what the system is using to operate?
Am I correct in assuming the system is fully powered by the sun now, since the solar panels provide more than the 208 used? And is the sum of Current 1 and Current 3 related to Current 2?
I keep getting blocked when trying to reply ( try again without some of the data )
I just changed this today: my crontab has a entry in it already that takes a picture every 15 minutes from 6 am until 8pm. I just moved those entries in to that file so to keep the usb camera unpowered unless it is needed
I tried to post it Via Chrome and IE (edge). it had redirected me to your cloudflare security site that said that it triggered the block and to email the owner. I also have issue with going to this form via your home page. but I have a link to this page so I can get here. I have tried it from home, a pi and at work. so I know it is not at my end.
