ESP8266 stops working

Post by H3inz3lmann » Tue Apr 11, 2017 7:40 am

Hi,

I'm using my board to read data from a BNO055 and send it directly to a server.
I read the values in a while-loop and send them every 10 values via mqtt (umqtt.simple).
My problem now is, that the board stops sending values after an random amount of seconds, sometimes it stop after a few secons (10 or so) an sometimes it works for something like 1 or 2 minutes.
Does anyone has an idea why that problem occurs or an solution?:D

Best
Matthias

If you connect an USB terminal to the device, does it tell you any error messages? And did you identify, in which part of your code it stops?

Thanks for the ideas. while testing them I didn't find anything, so I testet around and found a loose connection. That was just "active" in real usage not in testing mode.
