I see. Well I’m just using a machine board right now as the tractor has greenstar in it so not sure what I’ll do. I thought maybe I could use a usb NumPad but for some reason the numpad on my keyboard here doesn’t work.
The switchbox PGN. That will work as long as you are not using an actual switchbox separate from this machine control board.
However the original request was to have the machine (work) switch packed into another PGN that was used by a Machine board on the implement itself.
The only issue I see here is that a switchbox might be in use in the cab. The machine board on the implement. There could be a conflict between the two. I think ultimately the work switch needs to be configurable from two or more sources (steer module, machine board, switchbox, etc.)
Hi, you are on the right track. For sprayer use you use a (on)-0-(on) toggle switch and send these bits 2-3 times (at change and at 1 Hz). So the buttons on the screen and the switch in the box have equal rights.
For a seeder that might be lifted up and then is not able to seed, you should send “off” as long as lifted and “on” 2 or 3 times when back in the soil. So you will to be able to switch off on the screen. This will turn on/off AgOpenGPS auto section control.
Alternatively you could send the off bit for each section when lifted = off group 0 = 8 bits = section 1 to 8. And send nothing when seeder is in the soil. This will turn the single section buttons in AgOpenGPS red and green.
It is possible to separate the relais from the switch board. BUT only one board can send data to AgOpenGPS, number of boards receiving data is kind of unlimited when using UDP.
My code should support your needs, it also supports hitch level sensors as main switch.
I didn’t code it recently but works with 5.7.2
I would prefer the esp32, ethernet via w5500 mini.
The nano33iot doesn’t work really stable with wifi, whereas the esp32 does.
PS: sorry for not replying immediately, lot’s of work and family stuff
