Mag read failed


#1

Hi Pavel,

I have encountered some problems with the use of APM firmware:

Serial port zubax_gnss module has been printed:

Mag read failed
Mag read failed
Mag read failed

nsh> uavcan status

Sensor ‘gnss’:
RX errors: 0, receiver node id: 50

Sensor ‘mag’:
devname: /dev/mag
channel 0: node id 50 --> class instance 1
channel 1: empty
channel 2: empty
channel 3: empty
channel 4: empty

I use the APM firmware is V3.3.2 Copter,and zubax_gnss_fw_v1.bin.

GPS is ok, but CAN’s external magnetic compass is not calibrated, which is why?

thanks,
Joey.

Either the compass IC or the I2C bus are broken. Considering the fact that your CAN2 is also malfunctioning, I would suggest you to replace the whole unit. Has it been damaged in some way?

If you have soldering equipment, I would suggest to resolder the compass IC (it’s position is shown on the diagram here: docs.zubax.com/zubax_gnss).

Yes, I’ve been to the magnetic compass chip again.

My CAN2 is good, this is the CAN2 print data:

How can I be sure that I use the magnetic compass on my zubax_gnss module?


(Pavel Kirienko) #4

If you followed the setup instructions provided here, your APM will use the external compass: docs.zubax.com/zubax_gnss/tutor … th_pixhawk
Although I am not sure how one can verify which compass is being used.

Concerning your question on why the firmware reports “No external hmc5883”: this message only indicates that the firmware could not find an external I2C compass, which is expected. It has no relation to a CAN-interfaced compass.

Seems like you have repaired CAN2, what was the problem with it?


#5

Yes, my CAN receiver chip is bad. I’ve switched to another SN65HVD230.

Can you leave your email to me?My Friend!

thanks,
joey.
