  TX v3.13 and Fine Offset wire colour
Posted by: heebyjeeby - 18-07-2019, 22:24 - Forum: Hardware Questions - Replies (2)


I have one of the new TX V3.13 boards which dont have the plug sockets for my Fine Offset rain gauge and wind vane / anenometer. So I have cut off the jacks and am now trying to connect the wires the right way round.
What colour wire corresponds to what? Wind vane/speed has red, black, green, yellow. Presume red and black are 5v and GND. I have tried various combinations but cant get it working right. 
Rain gauge is working ok, 2 wires and I dont think it matters which way round they go?

  UV Sensor ...

I'm definitely committing myself to building one of these weather station systems and have been reading my way through the available info.
I understand that the Fine Offset sensors are suitable for use within the setup ... but, is the UV sensor that is incorporated into the Fine Offset WS3083 suitable for use within the WeatherDuino system as I have a couple of spare units floating around in the cupboard ???

  Strange rain figures
Posted by: daveh - 08-07-2019, 19:14 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

I have been seeing some very high rain figures on my PRO2 system sometimes so today I did some testing.
I poured water into the Fine Offset gauge until it had tipped three times.

CumulusMX showed 0.8 mm of rain as I would expect but the Weatherduino wireless receiver and the wireless display both show 18340.0 mm.

In the CumulusMX log I see this.

2019-07-08 18:00:00.279 Writing today.ini, LastUpdateTime = 08/07/2019 18:00:00 raindaystart = 849.8 rain coun
ter = 849.8
2019-07-08 18:08:55.585  ****Rain reset? First chance: raindaystart = 849.8, Raincounter = 842
2019-07-08 18:08:55.585 Leaving counter at 849.8
2019-07-08 18:08:58.190  ****Rain counter reset confirmed: raindaystart = 849.8, Raincounter = 842
2019-07-08 18:08:58.191 Setting raindaystart to 842

Any idea what is going on please.

Hi all.

If this question has been asked before, please accept my apologies, i have a UV30A UV sensor, the fact that it is a UV sensor means it must be outdoors exposed to the elements, my problem is can i make it waterproof without effecting the readings? is there a product out there i can cover it with, which does not block UV rays?

  No AQM display on WD unit
Posted by: atbukc - 25-06-2019, 20:07 - Forum: Software Questions - Replies (6)

My Weatherduino system is installed and running well, it comprises a PRO2 TX PCB v 2.50, WeatherDuino Pro2 PLUS Receiver both located in a garden shed, and a WD 4PRO v1.30RevA located 20M away in the main house and an AQM that is in a test location in the house also.

The system is performing well, except that the Air quality data is not ever being shown on the WD unit, it is however displayed perfectly well on the RX unit.

Any pointers what I should check? I’m guessing it is a misconfiguration in the Arduino code somewhere..
