I’ve got the Iotawatt working monitoring a refrigeration load and it’s been working well initially. I set it up with wireless access present, via a mobile hub, and then remove the wifi, but the Iotawatt still measures, as indicated by the pulsing (not flashing) red LED. This worked for a few days but after a while I noticed on return, that there were data breaks present, which I can’t figure. It didn’t lose power and the wifi wasn’t there anyway. When wifi is reintroduced the unit needs a reboot but then uploads to Emoncms absolutely fine. The data isn’t in the Iotawatt to start with as I can see the graph through the control interface and the data is not on board, so it’s not in the upload to Emoncms that the problem is.
Would you have any leads what is causing the data breaks? Would it be temperature or filesize?
The system works really well otherwise and I’d be recommending it to domestic users, but just these darn blank spots! Image is an Emoncms grab showing the nature of the problem.
Many thanks for your work,
