DS3232 RTC

Post by gerrmac » Fri Apr 27, 2018 6:40 am

I am new to Arduino. As part of my learning, I bought a Freetronics DS3232 RTC module. I have mounted the RTC module onto a prototyping shield, using wires soldered to the relevant pins which connect to the Uno board. I have read what I can, and have entered the John Boxall sketch, project 57, into the Arduino IDE. I can understand to some degree what the various parts of the sketch are doing. It verifies OK, but when I trying to Upload it, there is an error message "Invalid library found in ....\libraries\RTCModule-master. I am assuming that the correct file(s) are not in the /libraries folder.

When I go to the Freetronics website and the information for this module, and click on the first link offered http://rweather.github.com/arduinolibs/index.html I get information about Cryptography. What gives here?

When I go to the alternative link offered about using this module, https://github.com/Tecsmith/DS3232RTC , I see several files which appear more useful. Which (or all?) of these files do I have to put into the libraries folder?

Thank you.

Have a read of this page.
It refers to a 'new library here.
I haven't tried this so cannot confirm that it works, but see how you go.
