odroid restarts when huawei e3372h is connected

Post by qlex »

Hi,
we're usiong C2 with modified version of Android 6 that can use Huawei E3372h 4g modem.
Is it possible, that some of the usb ports have different amerage/voltage or could there be a problem that when modem is switching between 3g/4g, modem requires more power and therefore whole Odroid restarts ?
We are supplying odroid with 5v/2,5a and only connecting huawei dongle and mouse/keyboard on usb.
Any ideas ?

Is there any way to measure the power draw of Odroid?

Yes, you can get yourself Smart Power 3 and measure it very well. :)
And if it is indeed a power issue you will be able to spot it easily.

You may also try any other powerful bench PSU to rule out there is something wrong with your power adapter. I'll repeat this endlessly, but often wall warts fail to meet their specifications.

[mention]mctom [/mention] thanks. Is smart power 1 or 2 also an option? I can’t seem to find smart power 3 available in polish stores and I need to check my Odroids asap.

I have no experience with SP[1-2].

No Polish store offers Smart Power 3 yet, sadly, but a few days ago someone mentioned it can be obtained from pollin.de. Perhaps Botland will follow shortly.
Also if you live in Gdańsk area I can lend you mine.

Ok. I can see smartpower3 in pollin. Does it allow to plug Odroid c2? The supplied cables seem to be that bigger size jack so only for Odroid c4?

Well said, I don't have C2 and would forget about it.

Easier said than done - wqe got over 200 |C2s running in remote locations so not easily changed to C4, especially since C4 is 12V and C2 is 5V. Since i have 6 c2 in office returned for service, it would make sense to test them using Smart Power - but don't know if I can use SmartPower3 or Smartpower 1.

It does seem to be compatible with C2. Like I said, I have no experience with it. But it is rated for 5V and 5A output which should be more than enough.
Smart Power 3 should work as well. It's up to you.

SmartPower3 would work on C2 and C4 i guess, but SmartPower2 (or 1) would not work on C4, since C4 requires 12V right >?

SmartPower2 can generate 12Volt if you can replace a tiny resistor.

Thanks [mention]Odroid [/mention] but ITS better to use smartpower3 in order to be able to test and monitor both c2 and c4 - we got both models in big Numbers.
