Missing sensor in web interface



  • Is there a document that explains why a component is displayed in the web interface?

    The reason I ask is that there is a sensor defined in my system that used to show up and now it does not.

    What needs to be present for a heater to show in the web interface, or a sensor or a fan or a bed?

    It seems that just defining these components does not mean that they show up.

    Thanks.

    What firmware and DWC version are you using?
    How is your sensor defined in config.g?

    On the status page in DWC (3.1.1) there is the Tools + Extra tab to set and display the temps, extra sensors would show up in the extra tab, doe sit now show there?



  • Duet 3 with Pi3 B+ SBC
    DWC is 3.1.1
    My config.g file is attached.

    Ok, now I see how to show a graph of the unassigned sensor. Sorry I missed that.

    Still a couple questions though.

    Q1:
    I have 2 heaters on my bed, a right and a left and a single extruder. They each show as Active in the DWC after a reset. How does one force those to show as Off or Standby with Gcode? I would like to set the Active and Standby temperatures to an actual value other than zero in my config, but anything other than zero turns the heaters on.

    I have been using M140 to control the heater temp, but the logical heater state does not seem to be settable in M140.

    Q2:
    I am using a water cooled heat block on my extruder and it has a fan and a pump. Right now I am controlling the pump and fan as Fan devices in the config. The pump is using OUT2 of the Duet 3 and the fan is using OUT4. I have configured the pins using M950 with a PWM value for the fan, but the pump should be either on or off, not PWM controlled.

    The question is I know how to setup and control the pump without a PWM value? Just On/Off. Also, if it is configured in this way will it still show up in the web interface as a fan with a % value?

    Q3:
    Lastly, how do you tell the DWC that filament is already loaded in the tool after a reset?

    config.g

    Thanks.

    say that a few times out loud. turning it on... turns it on...

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish, or think it should accomplish? For the tool, see the T command. Selecting a tool with T0 makes it active. If a tool temp was set with G10, setting it active will raise the temp to the set point. Setting it inactive again with a standby temp set with G10 will set it to the standby temp.

    Using M140 will select the bed and set it active and set the temp all in one. https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Gcode#Section_M140_Set_Bed_Temperature_Fast_or_Configure_Bed_Heater

    I don't think you can do something like T0/G10 with the bed. If you're turning it on, it's to a set temp.

    For your pump... PWM value of S1 is on, S0 is off. Does that now work?

    Ok, so the T0 at the end of my config set the flag in the DWC as active. I should have seen that, sorry.

    Ok, configuring the bed heater sets it as active. It would be nice if after a reset, I could set it to off or standby.

    With the pump, yes, S1 is on and S0 is off, but it also has a slider on the DWC that changes the value. I really was looking for just an on/off button.

    Still learning. Thanks.
