Batrium Timeout problem
#11
Have you tried with 1 longmon and a resync with configuration of 1 mon?

Did that mon then blink properly but watchmon did not recieve anything or no data at all to the first one? Doing that you can quickly identify at which end of that mon the problem is. The mon that doesnt blink is where the data is lost.

I tried isolating down to one Longmon ...using two different Longmons ...but not all 14. I could not resync with either of them. I also did a factory reset in the software with no positive results. So other than the problem itself it is the Watchmon ...I do not know. It is going to be a pain to try each individual Longmon only to find out it is the Watchmon. Are all Batrium systems this finicky?

You didnt answer all my questions. Do the single longmon blink? If not the issue is before that longmon. Then crosscheck continuity all the way from the watchmon contact to the longmong contact. Not partly but all the way...

Im pretty sure the issue lies with you rearranging causing an issue to a cable OR you are sure you did not mix the signal wires? If you do that you burn the watchmon....


No this issue is not really an issue unless you have caused some issue with it. But Yes it is tricky to trace the error since it is complex systems.

Sorry ...no the one Longmon does not blink when I isolate it to one Longmon.  And no I did not mix the signal wires.

And you did check continuity then? Between watchmoon Contact and the longmon Contact?

Yes I checked continuity.  Now the Watchmon is not even indicating that it is sending messages with the red transmit light on it and I receive no timeout message.  This is after trying to test a couple more of the Longmon's.  And yes, I disconnected power to the Watchmon each time I moved ahead to test another Longmon.  So now the Watchmon seems to be completely dead in the water.  I tried a reset on the Watchmon itself too after that happened and this did not correct anything.   So I just do not see how it cannot be the Watchmon itself at this time.

Have you seen the thread Hugh posted recently ?

He gave his apparently dying WM the kiss of life via a firmware refresh, his symptoms started similar to yours.

One of my spare WMs visited Hugh while he was awaiting delivery of his replacement, if it helps get you up and running again pending Batriums intervention I'll happy send it on another holiday to you.

Thanks Sean once again! I will try the firmware refresh ....although the firmware was updated. I believe you are located in UK? Right? Taking you up on the offer (which is kind of you) means International shipping back and forth. So I will see what Batrium has to say about a replacement/repair if in fact it is the Watchmon. This has got me thinking that a backup Watchmon is in order ....seems like a lot of you folks have those ...there must be a reason for that. What is the experience of Batrium actually repairing their products?

The firmware reset did not fix the problem.

On this topic ...doe anyone know exactly what these connectors are for the Longmons? They are certainly not JHT ....but they are an achilles heal in the system so having a supply for replacement would be a good idea.

And a new observation ....now I have found that without the Watchmon transmitting and receiving that the Longmons seem to shut down after a period of time ...meaning that the green LED's no longer stay lit. If I unplug the connectors with the power source form the cells they come back on.
