Spotter buoy weird behaviour

Hi,
We tried to do a test deployment yesterday to get more familiar with how to deploy the system for the future.

I had connected the BM kit to the Spotter buoy using this guide Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.

When we deployed the leds on the spotter buoy lit up like this:

System Go Signal
orange orange/red
green red
green green
red green red

We had not made any changes to the BM node nor the spotter buoy
According to the user manual for the spotter that means we should try to turn it off, take the SD out and in, then turn it on again

that did not fix the sequence of the leds

In the workshop the spotter buoy only comes to green system, red go (which is to be expected, it is not able to find gps signal inside)

While in the workshop I can connect to the BM node, and I can ping the spotter buoy and get a response

bm topo
(root)c4875d29f14aced:2 | 1:94636abaafbaaa1c
bm ping 0x94636abaafbaaa1c

Then according to this guide Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases. I can connect to the spotter using USB-C, which I did, and the only port that pops up on my machine while I connect the spotter is a STMicroelectronics virtual port with baud=9600, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit

Opening this connection using either coolterm or puTTY gives just an empty console, no 1981 Spotter logo

What should my next steps in debugging be?

Hello @OASimen, thanks for your question.

To debug more the red System LED on the Spotter, it would help to look at the contents of the SD card in the Spotter.

Causes of red system LED can include some of :

  • low battery
  • SD card issues
  • error initializing sensors (barometer, …)
  • error initializing visibility LED
  • Spotter is not charging battery out of safety because the system temperature is higher than a safety threshold

Some of the above are non-issues. We are working to adjust the conditions under which the System LED turns red, so to not raise unnecessary concern.

If you are comfortable sharing files on the forum, you could attach the *_ERR.log files from the Spotter here to start.

If you are on a Unixy system like Mac or Linux, you can run something like this in a terminal window where the SD card files are located:

grep -H -e ERR -e WARN *_ERR.log

This will show lines in those log files which are errors or warnings.

I extracted all the errors from the SD card:

  • The battery was fully charged about an hour before we went out
  • The SD card at least reads fine when connecting it to a computer
  • error initializing some sensors could be the issue, though I do not see it in the error log
  • the visibility LED is blinking
  • Spotter was not charging when we tried to deploy, although there was not a lot of sun (we are in Norway, and it is February so there is not a lot of sun)

I uploaded all the files containing the logs to this github repository

Thanks @OASimen .

My initial review finds that the above quoted line will indeed cause a Red System LED. This will happen when the cellular signal strength is low, or no cellular coverage is available. Future firmware revisions will no longer turn the System LED red for this condition.

This condition will cause the GO LED to turn red but should not impact the System LED.

Does this help?

I read the Sofar documentation and I just want to confirm that Norway is counted as being part of the EU for the purposes of the SIM card aboard it

just asking because we were not far from the nearest base station for LTE there

there is also 5G coverage, but it might not be at the full 5 bars depending on which carrier is chosen

Please contact support@sofarocean.com and include the Spot ID of the Spotter which is part of your kit.
