I can not connect Mini-RX beacon to the dashboard

Post by kangye1234 »

Dear:

I bought 4 Mini-RX, one HWv4.9 and one modem.

I can connect HWv4.9 and modem to the dashboard.
But all the 4 Mini-RX can not be connected to the dashboard.

I think I charge it, switch position is right. USB cable works well.

By the way, sometimes, just for one or two seconds, the dashboard display one fail, probably because of the Mini-RX?

What is the problem? What can I do?
If it can not be found by the dashboard. I can not upload the firmware, and do anything.

I wonder, if there is anything wrong with the Mini-RX.

Can you help me. Any suggestions could be help

Really appreciate it.

Best Regards

Kang

Hello Kang,

Thanks for your comment :)

Beacon may be over discharged. Read Troubleshooting chapter of the Operating manual. We described that issue before :)

I still have two problems

Firstly, i try as you said. I think it is not overcharge
Is there a possibility that there is something wrong with the Mini-RX beacon

Secondly, HW4.9 can be connected to dashboard.
But it can only be found on the map when hedgehog is enabled.
When I change it into disabled, the beacon can not be found on the map anymore.
What should I do?

Looking forward to your reply


Regards

Hello,

Yes, it seems mini-Rx doesn't recognized by Dashboard in Linux when connected via USB.
We will fix this issue in next software update

Hi, I am having an issue with a modem connecting to the dashboard on ubuntu 18.04.

The lsusb shows it is detected:
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0483:5740 STMicroelectronics STM32F407

the /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Marvelmind_Robotics_Marvelmind_Robotics_Dashboard_device_00000000050C-if00

exists and /dev/tty/ACM01 is assigned to the modem

All the hardware managed to connect on Windows and I uploaded the latest .hex in, but in linux (same machine) they do not seem to want to connect. Is there any way to verify from a command line if a connection is possible?

Hello,
Check if the beacon is charged. The best way it would be to turn off the beacon through the DIP switcher and let it to charge for at least a few hours. If this won't help then turn the beacon in the DFU mode and update the software through Dfuse Demo which you can download from our website. If anything won't help then write to info@marvelmind.com for detailed help.
Good luck:)
