Hi Zakiem and all others,
so I can also confirm Zakiem’s observation as I went back to my Stalker, I removed again the solder blob between EN and CTL_D5, checked whether bridge between VCC and EN is cut (by multimeter) and … pulling D5 HIGH by program I get continous reseting.
In fact the Stalker concept is very good for remote sensor applications but at least three issues disqualifying it for this job:
- stucking RX8025
- mulfunctioning XBee powering via D5
- impossible to check whether the accu is connected to board or not by non-existing charge_status = 0x08
Seeedstudio guys - is not the time to test real Stalker v2.0 for above issues and provide the users with some significant instruction / help how to aviod these problems ?? Until now I have a feeling your answers are based on theoretical wiring concept “how it SHOULD work” which doesn’t comply to a many user experiences describing “how it REALLY works” …
Nevermind beside the critic words I would like to thank to Seedstudio’s stuff that they try to keep the contact with the users on this forum.
