You will have to forgive me here as i am very new to Lora and I am having issues using the payload and sending it to ThingsBoard. I think I am missing something obvious but not sure what.
I have a Vega IoT SI-13 RS232 device connected to my PC via an RS232 link, (this device will be connected to a set of rs232 scales eventually).
I am using serial port emulator to send a signal to the device saying ‘123Kg’.
I can see from the app on my PC monitoring the device that an input is received on the interface (it doesn’t show me the data, just that an input has been received and it is sending the packet).
Under the device in Chirpstack i then get an uplink frame with the below info:
adr:true applicationID:"1" applicationName:"Blue-Skies-Benin" data:"AwQABAABAGezlQ==" devEUI:"3939353452385414" deviceName:"Marco_Scales_1" fCnt:9 fPort:2 gatewayID:"00003881d7930750" loRaSNR:10 altitude:0 latitude:0 longitude:0 name:"Benin-Gateway-03" rssi:-28 time:"2019-11-29T16:41:21.343015Z" uplinkID:"7f0369ce-d1ab-4edf-b1d7-a1652cc1628a" gatewayID:"00003881d7930765" loRaSNR:10 altitude:0 latitude:0 longitude:0 name:"Benin-Gateway-02" rssi:-29 time:"2019-11-29T16:40:52.123201Z" uplinkID:"6e59d5a8-cb05-4c50-9248-2a85d2dff37c" gatewayID:"0000e8eb113a0038" loRaSNR:10 altitude:-50 latitude:52.88375 longitude:-1.42377 name:"Benin-Gateway-01" rssi:-33 time:"2019-11-29T16:41:21.822094Z" uplinkID:"84043fa5-1e48-4e20-947f-f2a4eec82df0" dr:6 frequency:868300000
When i try to decode the ‘Data’ string manually, I just get funny symbols etc. so not sure if it actually contains the text ‘123Kg’
The second issue is none of this information appears to be being sent to Thingsboard. I have the servers setup and the device can be seen in Thingsboard (when ever the device sends a new packet, the timestamps under ‘Attributes’ section of Thingsboard device updates but nothing appears under ‘Latest Telemetry’).
I am at my wits end with this as it must be something simple like a missing codec or something but I cannot for the life of me work it out.
Any help would be appreciated.
