COMPASS in powersafe mode



Hi all,

 

COMPASS is back in powersafe mode :-). 

You should hear the beacon now every 3 minutes.

Solar Cell Voltage     1.25 V

Solar Panel 6 Cur      0.00 mA

Solar Panel 2 Cur      0.00 mA

Solar Panel 3 Cur      0.00 mA

Solar Panel 4 Cur      0.00 mA

Solar Panel 5 Cur      0.00 mA

EPS Reset Counter      0 

Power Level            Low Battery Capacity

Now itís very important to collect telemetry. If the voltage climb over 4
volt we can change to NORMAL mode. 

 

********************************************************

PLEASE do NOT send any commands to COMPASS until further notice

********************************************************

 

If you send any commands you overwrite the current settings and COMPASS may
fall back into emergency mode.

I will keep you informed about the next steps.

 

For your information here are recent reports from today. Thank you very much
for your efforts.
