Thank you very much for your answer.
1/ Do you have a diagram of the pins of the cable in order I can identify the ones that are used and the ones that are not ?
2/ For those who are interested in expanding expansion cables : use the keyword “10 pin IDC” to find male or female plugs on the web.
Have a nice day.
I got it fixed 5 seconds after typing my post.
Yes, there is a software configuration tip !
In the top right corner of your screen you will see a bell icon -> click on it, then activate the new zones.
Ray, perhaps you should add this info on the Starter Guide ?
Thanks, have a good day.
I’m having the same problem.
I received a brand new 3.0 controller and 3 expansion boards.
The main controller is working like a charm. I tested two different expansion board, each one with different expansion cables, without success.
The indexes of expansion boards are on OFF and OFF, like it is explained on https://rayshobby.net/docs/os30_starter_guide.pdf
I restart the controller but the new zones dont appear.
Any idea ? Is there any software configuration to do ?
Have a nice day.
I’m facing the same problem, I really would like to be able to program easily multiple lines at the same time.
I’d like to use opensprinkler in my farm, and when you’re using a pump you are sometimes bound to open multiple lines at the same time.
Could be a useful new function for next release ?
Thanks a lot !
Have a nice day.
I misunderstood, I tought I had to add the http://betaui.opensprinkler.com adress in the 192.168.x.x /su menu.
In a web browser both betaui.opensprinkler.com and ui.opensprinkler.com recognize my sprinkler. It works.
By the wy, I tried http://betaui.opensprinkler.com and I have a white blank page…
You will find as an attached png file the consoles of firefox, internet explorer and Chrome on windows 7 and in an .odt, the console of firefox on ubuntu. Excuse, the console are sometimes in french, but in the .odt doc I translated a few sentences in the notes.
Thank you for your help.
I’m on PC. But I could try on a mac next week.
I’m not sure the problem can come from mac or PC as it is a webinterface that should be crossplatform.
So, do you have only a grey blank page in place of the UI when connecting to the opensprinkler IP ?
Interesting that I’m not the only !
But, about mac and pc, I could not update the opensprinkler on pc where it wasnt recognized (windows and ubuntu) and I had to use a Mac to do it.

Perhaps I wasn’t so clear in my last email (I’m not native english speaker)
I first tried the procedure with firmware 2.0.5 ans Ui-old.zip, and didn’t succeed (I couldn’t even access to any file on the sd card).
Then I installed the last firmware (I think it’s 2.0.9) and tried with UI.zip. As I explained before I can access some files on the sd card (images, scriptfiles), but the page remains grey and blank.
This is what the console tells us :
“Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL”
and at the extreme right of the console screen : “app.jgz:1”
Thank you for your help
Ok, thank you for the answer.
salbahra, you said that I can connect directly to a computer using a cross-over cable. How do you do that ? When I try it my connection is said “limited or inexistant”
And the opensprinkler has no ip I can connect to (indicated 0.0.0.0)
And Ray, excuse me for the questions/remarks that you took so bad. I was just saying that sometimes you don’t have internet, or sometimes it is down, and someone would like to still be able to use the UI at that time.
And sometimes, it could be convenient to access the pensprinkler without a router.
But no problem, I understood your answer and your jokes about the valves.
