Working with the resistor module is making things much easier and a lot less work on my part.  I am liking what I am seeing from a development standpoint and can see a real time savings that will deliver consistent results.  First step is understanding what is found on the board and which end goes with which connection.

I was doing some research on a totally different subject and this popped up.

Sensor Module – DS18B20

ds18b20 -resistor board

Why this one?

Well easy answer – I have been making my own 4.7 pull-up resistor connectors for sometime now.  Problem for me is that they take a lot of time and are very bulky and hard to work with.  For a little more cost a dollar or so I get a board that will allow easy connections to many (so I think) DS18B20 sensors using one resistor.  The order came and now I can start testing my idea.  Having a solution this turn key will save a lot of time and perform better, time will tell now.

I will be posting how the testing goes and what will be needed to get top performance out of this module.

Now that the basic agponic-MD unit is completed – I am working through all the different features that can be found on the unit and define there functions.

Here is one side of the connection box at the back of the unit.

A big part of the aquaponic simulator is the fact that it uses standard RJ-45 jacks to interface with Arduino’s or a Raspberry PI.  Having this type setup helps keep all the wires and connectors that are required for the unit to operate in a consistent manor safe and out of possible interaction with water elements.

Here is what is needed to construct this sub-assembly:

When all the above parts come together the finished product looks like this:

Well it has been a while since my last post.  For good reason.  I wanted to hold off posting for some big accomplishments to talk about and set up the direction I will be going with this blog into the future.

FIRST BIG ACHIEVEMENT:

This will be my 100th post.  When I started this blog it was more an effort to explore ideas and concepts related to one small aspect of aquaponics and has now grown into a world wide effort from a number of neat people.

SECOND ACHIEVEMENT:

Have had my highest ever number of views on the blog and daily traffic has hit all time highs.

THIRD ACHIEVEMENT:

Will go over 50K view of the Internet-of-Farming this week!

IoT- Farming stat

LAST MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT IS:

Finishing of my    agponicMD (micro device).  I now have a fully functional aquaponic device that will allow me to test any and all scenarios that I want to.  This is a major big deal for me.   This allows me to actually achieve IoT on a personal level and be one of the first to reach a practical application that will help interest others in this area of farming and agriculture.  Without this blog and the comments from all you I would not have been able to get this far or learned so much.

Well thanks to Terry King and his comment – that he has DS18B20’s working fine with arduino IDE 1.0X.  I double downed my efforts to get 1.0.2 arduino IDE working.  I un-installed all versions – dumped all the libraries and started from a clean system again.  Loaded everything up and got all the new  libraries.  EVERYTHING WORKED FINE!  Thank you Terry!

DS18B20 – always a new twist June 10, 2013

I have resisted moving to Arduino IDE 1.0.x as I have read that people have had problems moving to it.

In my case I have been using ver 21 IDE because it was stable and all the libraries worked with it.  Now that I am moving to the IoT platform I am required to use Arduino IDE 1.0.x.

First step was to download and install.  Then needed to re-establish all the libraries required to work with DS18B20.  Once all done it was time to determine if it all would work correctly.

To start off I ran the one-wire finder sketch.  Much to my delight it worked.  Now I was very confident that this transition was going to go smoothly.   I now connected up 3 sensors and loaded my 3 sensor sketch.

Here was my result:

DS18B20 - 1.0.x

I got reading that were incorrect or really no readings at all

Next I had to make sure the hardware was connected right.  So I went back to my ver. 21 IDE and re-tested everything.  Sure enough everything worked great.

The results now is that using the Hacktronics sketch that was stated to be workable with Arduino IDE 1.0.x does not work with my set-up.  Now I will have to determine just what the problem is and how to correct it.

This will have to be my next task in learning about the DS18B20 and Arduino.

Ground connectors completed and tested

I am getting closer to getting 20 probes ready to test.  Everything is just about in place to make a run at it.  So stay tuned we are getting close now…….

DS18B20 — new probe set established August 13, 2012

Next step in getting to determine if I can get 20 probes to configure correctly,  is to determine the HEX code for each probe.  Being that I had 10 left to pull of the HEX I got to work on this task.  Here are the results.

P022 — 0x28, 0x67, 0x22, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0xA1

P023 — 0x28, 0xAC, 0x30, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x39

P024 — 0x28, 0x4A, 0x18, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x64

P025 — 0x28, 0x1A, 0x3A, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x31

P026 — 0x28, 0x66, 0xC1, 0x7A, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0xD7

P027 — 0x28, 0xA2, 0x51, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0xF6

P028 — 0x28, 0xB5, 0x1F, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x63

P029 — 0x28, 0x9B, 0xC0, 0x7A, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x22

P030 — 0x28, 0xBE, 0xB6, 0x7A, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x8E

P031 — 0x28, 0x20, 0x15, 0x47, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x84

Now I have the HEX code I need to enter all the information into my INDEX of probes so I can track each probe and where I have them located in my systems.  Helpful to know if I move them around in the future.  I had been using the procuct “MANYMOON” for tracking, but have since switched over to “EVERNOTE”.  This has proved to be a better platform for me as I can manage larger amount of information on a large amount of projects.  Evernote also allows me to have access to my information on any device I am using.  Great Stuff.

Here is what my index now looks like:

4 – completed connectors and fully tested

The next step to achieving running 20 probes was to complete the 4.7K resistor harness set-up.  I now have this done and can move on to the finishing off the ground connector that will allow pull all this together.
