IoTaWatt enters reboot loop

Hi everybody

I just received my new IoTaWatt. After successful installation including connecting Current Sensor (CT) and Voltage sensor (VT) and connecting to remote emon-server at openevse
After some sucessful data transmission, I configured a second input to transmit and since then the IoTaWatt entered in a reboot loop:

What did no help:

  • disconnecting single or all sensors (voltage and current)
  • hard reboot (power off)

What did help:

  • disconnecting internet connection of my local WiFi

O course this is not a definite solution.

I suppose the power consumption is excessive if connecting to remote server. I use the USB-power adaptor which came with the IoTaWatt delivery. (1.2A)

Any recommendations?

Thank you

I attach the log message of the restart-loop

Hi Lukas - I had a reboot loop also. Maybe you have the same issue I did…

Hi Jon, this is exactly the same issue. Thank you.
