[moved, closed] Robotdyn ATmega2560+ESP8266 - no serial in ESP-Easy

#1 Post by dmq » 25 Jan 2019, 23:55

Hi,

I really hope that someone can help me out.

I have the current version of ESP-Easy (alread tried older versions) and the current version of RF-Link on a Robotdyn ATmega2560+ESP8266. I can connect to the serial port of both devices and I get a valid output on both devices. On the Arduino part I see the initialization of RF-Link and when I trigger a (i.e. IT, Kaku) device I see the correct output. But unfortunately I can not get to work the link between the Arduino and the ESP.

I tried the following dip-switch combination:

Code: Select all

Connection	DIP
 	                                           1	2	3	4	5	6	7
ATmega2560<->ESP8266	               ON	ON	OFF	OFF	OFF	OFF	OFF
USB <-> ATmega2560<-> ESP8266	ON	ON	ON	ON	OFF	OFF	OFF	To RXD3/TXD3
I created a device in ESP-Easy with ‘Communication - Serial Server’ and

Code: Select all

a.	Name: RFLINK
b.	Enabled: checked
c.	TCP Port: 5333
d.	Baud Rate: 57600
e.	Data bits: 8
f.	Parity: No Parity
g.	Stop bits: 1
h.	Reset target after boot: - none –
i.	RX receive timeout: 0
j.	Event processing: RFLINK
When I connect to 5333 I can not see output. Further I tried to forward it to a mqtt-server with the following rule:

Code: Select all

On !RFLink#* do
Publish test,%eventvalue%
endon
Nothing is forwareded to the mqtt server - I can not see anything in the log :cry:

Does someone has an idea?

Thanks in advance,
dmq

I can say, that the unit is not defective.

I use a 433 MHz RXB6 Receiver with an extra antenna. The range is great - I can see all things I wanted to see in the Serial Output of the the RF-Link Arduino Mega side.

I tested all units with the code I found here ( see (1) - it is in russian):

- esp8266 part (works)
- Arduino Mega part (works)
- Inter-Connection between both (works)

But with RF-Link and ESP-Easy I can not get it to work.

I would like to move the the topic to an exiting thread in the ESP-Easy section.

Hi,
I have found an integration solution to build a RFLink Wi-Fi Gateway board using Robotdyn.

You can find the project here: https://gitlab.com/rrenato/rflink-wi-fi-gateway-board
