I am running a simple program with an automated weather station, unfortunately after 7 days exactly it locks up.
all that it needs is a full power cylce and it performs well again. (i have let the manifactureres know and we are working ina solution together)
in the mean time, i was thinking of powering the device with the 12volt switch, and powering it off for say 1 minute evewry 24hours.
how would i achieve this?
at the moment i runa slow sequence for a gps timing device which turns on once and hour.
but how to i keep the device on, and then turn off for a small section of time.
thanks in advance
See following for detail:
I still use it after I shift to RV50.
FTY for people who are looking for a similar solution.
i have found two different ways to tunr the switch off for a limited time but stay on for the remainder of the time.
If IfTime(640,1440,min) Then SW12(1,0) 'Turn off at 10:40am (640minutes out of 24 hours is 1040am)
If IfTime(645,1440,min) Then SW12(1,1) 'Turn on at 10:45am
If TimeIsBetween (690,700,1440,Min) Then 'between 1130am and 1140
SW12(1,0)'turn off SW12
SW12(1,1)'turn on SW12
this has worked perfectly for me,
what i plan now is to turn it off for one minute every 24 hours, and have it write to table 1 every 10 minutes, meaning that there will be no missing data in that table.
