Toolbox question

Post by lklawrie » Fri 02 Jan 2015 7:24 pm

I believe I've asked this before but didn't receive an answer. Tried messaging the developer -- also did not receive a response.

I would like to monitor the battery voltage on the Davis Console and though it shows the correct voltage when I edit the rule -- it never comes up with a message. the battery voltage shows as sic (4.31v) -- I put in a rule to notify when < 3.1 or 3.1v but neither appear to work.

I don't think this will be possible, the tag value contains the 'v' character which means that the numeric comparison will probably fail. I think your only hope would be Steve adding a tag that contains just the numeric value.

So, I suppose I could try "equals" and several selections of 3.1v, etc.

Depends how the comparison in toolbox works, if it is numeric it may still not work.

FYI, that appears to work. "Equals" is case insensitive, text comparison.

So, I put in a couple of check points for the battery value.

when it hits 3.1, it usually fails shortly after.

Did you manage to get it working, if so how?

Thanks
