I have the server running on a fitpc2 and the client working on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A. I am able to detect the particle photon board in the app when I setup the kegerator, and it correctly show the 4 flow sensor ports flow0-3 when I set up the taps.
When I try a pour I’m not getting anything, either when I have automatically start pours turned on, or when I have it off and select a manual pour.
I suspect I’m having a particle issue now but everything I see on their forums seems to be more code related. When I look in the web IDE at the funtctions resetMeter and meterTicks they are both reading 0. To setup the Particle I used the Desktop IDE, opened the folder I got from the kegbot github, clicked on the main.ino and then clicked compile to cloud and upload code using cloud. I thought this had worked as I was now presented with the resetMeter and meterTicks when I opened the web console. I have no idea on how I to see what’s actually occurring on the board.
I’ve tried 2 flow meters [https://www.adafruit.com/product/828], I’m using a 2.2k resistor as a pull up between Vin and signal. I suspected the Vin wasn’t putting out enough voltage for the flow meter so have tried powering it off a separate supply that’s providing 9VDC whilst the particle is still powered via its USB.
I’ve also tried both the board supplied V and the dedicated supply without a a pull-up resistor and with an 820ohm resistor.
To clarify I’m not actually passing liquid through the flow meter as I want to confirm it works before I plumb it into my keezer, I’ve just been blowing into it to trigger it, enough that I can hear the wheel inside turning at a good pace. Again I’ve tried blowing more and less to see if this is affecting it.
Any help would be appreciated, I feel I’m so close to having this working now.
