WSN-9791troubleshoot erratic readings

We have a WSN-9791 with four WSN - 3212 s. All 3212 s have power supplies OR (don't not running off battery).

Three of the four 3212 s give erratic readings. For example, the following was recorded today to a piece that should be around 70F:

17/10/2012-15:38:20 187,8
17/10/2012-15:39:20 148.9
17/10/2012-15:40:20 139,0
17/10/2012 15:41:20 - 1548.9
17/10/2012-15:42:20 37.2
17/10/2012-15:43:20 158.8
17/10/2012-15:44:20 39.5
17/10/2012-15:45:20 111.5
17/10/2012-15:46:20 206,4
17/10/2012-15:47:20 - 6.6
17/10/2012-15:48:20 188,6
17/10/2012-15:49:20 262.5
17/10/2012-15:50:20 74.1
17/10/2012-15:51:20 102.0

Location appears to play a role - so far two 3212 s different that give erratic readings have been very stable (with reasonable readings, too) when they sit on my desk, but become erratic when moved elsewhere in the building. In addition, one of the erratic nodes goes stable days, then several erratic days, then back to stable. When a node is erratic, all four thermocouples of this node are erratic.

Thinking that this might be a problem with the electrical noise, I put one of the 3212 s on a UPS - no difference. I also changed the channel without wire used for a couple of different parameters, without modification. I moved the 9791 at different locations in the building, again no difference. Thermocouple type parameters have been triple checked.

Any ideas on how to solve this?


Hi James,

WSN-3212 is sensitive to analog loops mass and power supply noise and maybe it's what you see. To determine if this is the problem, try the following.

1. electrically isolate environmental thermocpule probes

2. connect the ground terminal GND D of the WSN-3212 (PIN 10, 12, 14 or 16)

See you soon,.

  • time (for wsn 9791) in MAX server configuration


    I need to set up a time for my gateway WSN9791 server in order to ger readings with timestamp of remote nodes. How can I do?

    I already checked this forum and other sources of information on this issue and has concluded that the time server is configured by using MAX under "Remote Systems > NOR-WSN9791 > System Settings" but I have not found any arrangement for the NTP server there.

    My system configuration is:

    -Windows 7 Professional

    -LabView 2013

    NOR-WSN 2013

    -MAX 5.5.0f0 of worm.

    -a WSN9791 gateway

    -eight knots of WSN3202



    Finally, I asked the technicians support of OR who have come to find a solution.

    I report the message that describes the problem.


    Why can I not set a time for my NOR-WSN-9791 gateway server?

    It is a known problem in NI MAX 5.5 and 5.6 MAX OR. The time server option was not be displayed due to a change in the backend of the system settings page. Workaround to view the setting of the time server was created. The following steps will allow the option of time server OR 5.5 or 5.6 MAX MAX OR

    1. on your development computer, go to C:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments\MAX\UI Providers\DefaultRemoteUixml\ to C:\Program Files (x 86) and 64-bit windows \National Instruments\MAX\UI Providers\DefaultRemoteUixml\ for 32-bit windows.
    2. in the directory C:\Program Files (x 86) of Providers\DefaultRemoteUixml\ \National Instruments\MAX\UI, make a copy of the original mxrmcfg. DDPSystem.def.xml original-mxrmcfg file. DDPSystem.def.xml. this backup the original file to undo the changes.
    3. open in Notepad the file mxrmcfg. DDPSystem.def.xml

    4 replace the contents of the file with the following:


    5 restart NI MAX

    After you follow these steps, you will be able to set the time server on the NOR-WSN-9791 via NI MAX.


  • My iPhone 6 is erratic when outdoors

    My iPhone 6 is now 1.5 years, upgrade 9.3.5 just a few days. Most of the day, I'm in my own environment of Home/Office Wi - Fi and the phone works perfectly.

    Yesterday (and today as well), when outside, with my phone trying to find a connection Wi - Fi to connect to-he started to behave totally erratically... Yesterday (while my friend drive on the way-Hey) was REALLY WEIRD, while trying to answer a text message that it wouldn't let me type, the app disappeared suddenly, he launched a few other apps by himself, he finds a place at random on Google Maps, I wasn't able to close some of my application open (slide up) and a few minutes I was not yet in a position to turn off the phone... It was a bit scary, as if someone else has taken over my phone... From the little I've read on this subject, is what others call, I think, 'Ghost touch '...

    The only other change I made in the last days was replacing my chipped glass shield with a newer model that has a frame of aluminum around it.

    ... Any clue?

    Thank you!

  • I had an erratic cursor.

    I had an erratic cursor.  My battery has 265 cycles and 'normal '.  I tried your ideas and I thank very you much.  Right now everything is OK.  I didn't acting OK for a week yet and not even for a day.

    My sister sent me a spam, after that she complained to me that his computer Microsoft OS has been reinstalled.  She only told me she thinks that something came in an email that I sent a few years ago!  Of course, that sounds nuts to me.  But my filters spam because of its using its address, its spam e-mail, passed.  I also received emails with his name and a strange address (not his own.)

    So, the problem started after that.

    Yet, I worry that it could be the battery.  My question is if the system says 'normal' what it means that the battery is any swelling?

    I used a USB mouse when the cursor has gone nuts.

    In addition, the level of humidity in the House was very high due to replace a hose where water has permeated interior walls, and more, wet weather and open windows, the water in the basement.  Dehumidifier would be turned off and not drain.

    So, I hope that the problems are the following: 1 high, humidity 2 keep the Macbook Pro 2012 procession connected permanently, but for one night surrendered the battery has been used up to almost empty this last week, 3 new OS could help.

    That you and I can say, after two days of fiddling, I even downloaded Beta Sierra and ATT McAfee.  My lost, just for this computer, Airport utility has lost access to my Time machine backups.  But, I'm back and used immediately before the OS is loaded.

    Of course, it's funny to be part blamed for a computer problem of an older sister, then to have one on a computer that is a problem that is practically free!  My Macbook is amazing, and I hope that it continues to be.

    The price tag of $200 on a new battery is nuts.  I was happy to discover that my display problem was so common as to be a free repair.  This was a few years back.  I did get a repair free, although two things told to me in time, free and non-free.  A battery with 265 cycles sounds and swelling sounds like a foul, but if all goes well, it is also good that the information system says it is.

    Please advise me on the issue of whether the information system will be accurate as to a battery which is a failure in this way!

    Here is the article from Apple support for trackpad issues:

    What about a battery in full expansion, the ONLY way you can check who is opening the MBP and Visual inspection of the battery.  The State says 'normal' is irrelevant.  Should it be expanded, it must be released immediately and replaced before more expansion damages the MBP.


  • trackpad behave very erratic

    My Mac Pro is very erratic; the cursor seems to select avery on its way, I start thinking that it's the Trackpad, knows everybody this unstable behavior due to TrackPad and some kind of fix that?

    Any information on the subject would be much appreciated.


    Hello bilesco,

    I see that Apple may have beaten me to it.   I suggest that you review the Blue, immediately above your name link.   Usually, if there is a separate trackpad and people upgrading from an old machine, the explanation will be found in the old trackpad.   But I assume you mean the built-in trackpad.

  • How to lock the scroll bar and several tabs to prevent them from scrolling erratically

    I have upgraded to Windows 10.
    Now the fireplace (Yes, it's the latest version) scrolls top down in erratic Web pages.
    I can't control the right scroll bar.
    Even after clicking on it or by moving up and down, either with the use of the touchpad, arrows and arrows at the top / below the scroll bar itself, it moves just everywhere anywhere on the page.
    The same thing occurs when multiple tabs are open. They scroll left and right erratically.

  • heart rate iWatch gives sporadic readings

    I use my iWatch everyday to monitor my workouts and recently the watch started giving crazy readings.  It will start to normal and 10 minutes in practice, it will say that my heart rate is in the 1940s. Then it will go up to 180 + and then back to normal for maybe 10 minutes.  Meanwhile it greys out for maybe 3 to 5 minutes and said measure... I unpaired and reset and it never does not.  It's very frustrating, because when I do a 1 hour training session I should get an average heart rate of 140-160 and now I get 80-110.

    Anyone else having this problem? Are there any current patches?


    Apple says that, even in ideal conditions, Apple Watch may not be able to save a reliable heart rate monitor each time reading for everyone.

    For best performance of the sensor of heart rate during the training, Apple suggests you consider your clamping beforehand watch band and he loosen again thereafter.

    The sensor is also likely to give better results for workouts that involve rhythmic (for example running) rather than the irregular movements (for example boxing). Other problems that can affect the performance of the sensor include the perfusion of the skin and wrist tattoos.

    If your workouts involve flexing your wrists (for example what weight lifting, for example), it can help to keep your watch a little higher on your arm, the joint in flexion.

  • MacBook Pro. 2 different readings of free memory

    My Macbook Pro.10.11.6/ 2012 is a bit slow. It shows also the 2 readings of different storage. Under Macintosh HD icon desktop reads 328,82 GB free. But in the section "about this mac" reads 271 GB free. Difference of 57 GB. It is a bit slow?


    It's a big difference, something that I would try would be to repair and check your drive. You can do this by following these steps:

    1. Restart your MacBook Pro
    2. When you hear the startup tone, hold down the command + R key until the apple logo appears at the bottom
    3. A dialog appears, select the Disk utility
    4. Select your Macintosh hard drive and under the first aid tab, click Repair
    5. Once the repairs completed, restart your mac

    I hope this will fix the problem, good luck!

  • Trackpad / acting erratically slider


    My cursor/trackpad on my MBP 2011 acts erratically and has a mind of your own. Desktop computers are moving left and right at random, the screen grows and Launchpad launches independently. The trackpad lack of sensitivity and so it is almost impossible to control the cursor. The problem is the same mode without failure.

    I deleted all Bluetooth devices. I did a reset of the SCM and LANDAU. I removed the battery, which, to my untrained eyes had look ok, although the left side screw blocking, closest to the road, he lost, is envelope so the screw doesn't help. However, I didn't see any pieces of loose plastic in the machine.

    If I check the box in system preferences ' ignores built in trackpad when mouse or a trackpad wireless is present ' and plug in a USB mouse, the system is stable. However, if I plug the USB mouse, but leave the box ticked goes haywire once again.

    Ideas please, I don't know where to go from here?

  • The cursor moves erratically even when no mouse connected

    I've had the problem for over a year now, but I never received tour to report. From time to time, my cursor moves erratic around the screen, jumping from position every few seconds. I have a MBP, but often use it plugged on a screen and mouse etc with the lid closed. The problem persists if Setup like that, even when the external mouse is disconnected, or when simply use it as a laptop. I recently wiped the hard drive and reinstalled a clean copy of Mac OS x from zero (no backup), but the problem still persists.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like a hardware problem. How old is this MBP? Sometimes, when they get older, the battery may start to inflate and put pressure on the trackpad.
