OGN-R PilotAware / Re: Very Impressed
« Last Post by Keithvinning on November 10, 2019, 08:03:22 pm »
Hi Vic
Yes the reach of the OGN stations is getting good but could get even better. You will hopefully have been tracked all the way from Kemble to Andrewsfield by the stations at Oxford, Turweston, Booker, Denham and Brookman Park.
we do need more statins and also need existing stations to upgrade to the latest software to ensure that they are being monitored and updating correctly.

more good stuff coming along soon.

Cheers

Keith

OGN-R PilotAware / Very Impressed

Flying back from Kemble today, our Ground station flawlessly tracked us all the way in for over 60 KM!

First pic is from http://ognrange.unseen.org/?#PWEGSL,max,today,51.88737_0.35691,10,#80000040:#008000ff,
The other is our Skydemon log.

OGN-R PilotAware / Re: Updating from Release 20191008
« Last Post by Ian Melville on November 10, 2019, 01:15:19 pm »
Thame/PWThame just updated OK. I didn't recall the 'Enabling Remote Maintenance access ' bit from when I rebuilt it the other day so did the update anyway.

Can you tell me if Enstone/PWEnstone also needs doing?

Technical Support / Re: Power Outage / UPS/ Possible solution
« Last Post by exfirepro on November 09, 2019, 11:13:47 pm »

As an aside, I have the PAW GPS on a short USB lead so I can place it in an optimal position (near the top of the bubble canopy) where it gets a significantly better signal than the tablet or phone's internal GPSs which are both below the panel, but I had been wary of allowing the PAW GPS to be the GPS source for the tablet/phone because thereby the continuity of the GPS feed is dependant on the PAW and its wifi staying online. Now I have high confidence in the continuity of PAW operation thanks to the Zendure, there's perhaps a case for reconsidering that decision.

Stu,

I can’t answer for Jeremy, but I can say with confidence that for well over 4 years now, I have been flying with PilotAware as the sole GPS source for my tablet(s) running SkyDemon or various other programs without any gps issues whatsoever. I have experienced PAW dropouts due to low voltage, but only during engine start and not due to gps issues.

Best Regards

Peter

Sorry to "argue", Jeremy, but the difference in the port shut-down voltages is not mentioned at all in the version of the manual I downloaded from your website a few hours before making my previous post. The document  is marked as :
 Part: C40B-M,
Version: 1.0,
Date: June 2017.
Record of Change: Initial release for CS-STAN (Harkwood Services Ltd).

is there any possibility the version available for download from your web site is not the current version you are looking at? I read it carefully before making my post above, and have re-read it again now and can state categorically there is nowhere that the different minimum voltages for the upper and lower ports is mentioned, the only feed voltage information is in the "Technical Specifications" section, which states "Input Voltage 11v - 30v DC; something seems not to be what it ought to be!

No argument from me.  The manual says the normal operating range is 11v - 30v, so between these things will run as expected.

The fault codes on page 3 says that for ports 2 & 4, the lights will flash twice.  The reason being...

Code: [Select]
Under-voltage detected
Charging suspended until the voltage returns to normal
Diagnostic port displays Input Voltage @ xx.x is out of 11v - 30v range.

I read that to mean that port 2 & 4 will be suspended as the voltage is below 11v.
For the purposes of the manual, the numbers are correct. 

However, there is an in-built margin around the nominal voltages - some of these numbers I put on the forum to help users with problems. 

I've only seen under volt issues in a handful of installs.  I have modified a few Charge4 to suit a particular installation, if the reason for the under voltage cannot be easily resolved.

I've always offered help via e-mail, and have also physically sorted out a few installs in users aircraft too (*waves to those who have met me*).

Perhaps I should stick to just quoting the manual rather than provide a bit more detail of what is happening internally, at least on forums, as it appears to be confusing.

I have looked through and can not find the answer to my problem.
Before the update my Trig Transponder had ADSB out now I get the error message on the Transponder "No ABSB position" or something like that.
I have configered all the USB ports to Trig but still not working.
I wish I had recorded all the configerations page before I updated as it all worked before.
Can anyone give me the port settings to get my ADSB out back please?

You should only reconfigure the USB port that your USB to RS232 converter lead is plugged into. They are numbered ...

Ethernet     Port 1   Port 3
Port.          Port 2    Port 4

The appropriate USB/RS232 port should be configured to ‘Transponder Trig’ and the Baud Rate to 9600

All the others should be set to ‘Auto’ and 4800

Out of curiosity I'll change my feed to Port 1, though now I have the Zendure as a robust UPS it's a matter of curiosity rather than necessity for me.
