OWL CM113 reading 0 Amps

Post by Stubloke » Friday 27 October 2017 19:49

Version: 3.8153
Platform: RPI B+, Jessie Lite
Plugin/Hardware: RFLink v r48
Description

RFLink seems to be receiving valid data .... With debug mode on , I get this in the log:

2017-10-27 17:11:00.307 RFLink: 20;20;OWL_CM113;ID=EA30;CURRENT1=0068;CURRENT2=0000;CURRENT3=0000;
2017-10-27 17:11:00.322 (RFLink) Current (Electric Monitor)

2017-10-27 17:16:18.298 RFLink: 20;47;OWL_CM113;ID=EA30;CURRENT1=006a;CURRENT2=0000;CURRENT3=0000

However, the meter stubbornly stays at 0Amps or 0Watts. The " last seen" gets updated often.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Further debug info, RFLink looks like it is reporting numbers that agree exactly with the OWL display:

0x0007 from RFLink = 0.7 Amps on display
0x007B from RFLink = 123 decimal = 12.3 Amps on display
eg from Domoticz log
2017-10-29 10:28:58.305 RFLink: 20;C0;OWL_CM113;ID=EA30;CURRENT1=007b;CURRENT2=0000;CURRENT3=0000;

But still the associated device in Domoticz is reading 0Amps, despite seeing regular updates.

It looks like a Domoticz data handling bug rather than an RFLink problem to me, but the mods moved my question here.

What could I try?

Have you tried to Allow scan for new devices in Settings and check if the previous Owl device is dead?

Woody. I have tried this several times, I this what you mean? ...

Deleted Owl device from Devices tab,
Allow "scan for new devices" in settings,
Domoticz picks up the Incoming RFlink message and shows the newly found device with a new ID number.

But when I use the newly found meter (using the the blue arrow symbol "Use device", which then turns green ), the Utility page shows a meter reading 0amps / 0watts.

I have also tried resetting the CM113 sender unit, and re-scanning but the new meter shows 0amp/0watts.

Maybe I'm missing something.

Did you ever get this fixed? I am seeing exactly the same. The device never changes from 0.0A

Code: Select all

2018-02-01 20:47:37.891 RFLink: 20;68;OWL_CM113;ID=EA70;CURRENT1=0012;CURRENT2=0000;CURRENT3=0000;
2018-02-01 20:47:37.902 (RFLink) Current (OWL_CM113)

To answer my own question for anyone else with the same issue - switching the clip into the 3rd port on the transmitter created a reading in Domoticz.

Imcfarla is right. Plug the current sensor into input 3 and it works.
