Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Do these fake large gusts point to supercap failure as well? No, it's not a common or specific symptom of supercap or board failure, but simply falls into the more general (and unhelpful) category of odd readings. It's impossible to say for sure but this one does sound to me a little more like a fa...

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Not sure if you get low battery warnings from the standalone transmitter - I have never seen one on my console. I have seen low battery warnings from the ISS in the past ... I think! Yes, you should do - the console ticker should say 'Low battery on station 2' or something like that I don't underst...

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Hmm, that looks OK, but unfortunately it's not a definitive test - if you can see gunge on one of the leads then the supercap is likely to be shot, but it does also sometimes fail without visible signs. You haven't explicitly said, but I presume that you're losing data from the ISS (ie rather than j...

Further to this - I re-seated the battery in the unit and was rewarded with about two hours worth of data recording. Loose connection?
Possible, but v unlikely. Whats does a visual check of the supercap indicate - clean leads or some exudate?

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

The anemometer Tx board is identical to the main ISS board and so any issues and features in the ISS also read across to the 6332 Anemo Tx board. More generally, Davis only make two types of transmitter board for the VP2 stations. One is the ISS type (all wireless VP2 ISS versions; 6332; 6372; 6382)...

Re: Volunteers Please - Cumulus MX Documentation

This is a great idea, albeit one that I don't have the expertise to contribute to myself. But could I make a plea not to overlook the simple, obvious stuff in any webpage/documentation/video. There are many weather station users out there (not always the most expert of computer users) who are not ye...

Re: Pro Vue Gain

AFAIK Gain has long since been disabled (because it can't really improve signal/noise). It's a hangover from the old VP1/VP2 days when there was a question over whether it might possibly be useful. Is this a Vue or a VP2? The subject line is confusing! How old? TBH it sounds like a relatively elderl...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

OK, thanks. Yes, it was me who reported trouble moving a card from Pi 3 to Pi 0 while setting up a CMX installation, but wasn't sure that maybe I just wasn't following the instructions carefully enough! But reassuring as a sanity check that it wasn't just me! OK, so different images might be needed ...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

How feasible would it be to create a downloadable and zipped Raspbian image with Mono/CMX pre-installed? Pi users could then just download the zip and use eg Etcher to set up a new SD card - a relatively quick and easy way to get up and running with CMX on a Pi. Really just asking in principle - not...

Re: WiFiLogger for Davis stations

The actual API for requesting data from the WiFi logger is just the standard Davis one, ie as per the SerialTechRef document - see: https://support.davisinstruments.com/article/rbzgl0rh6k-vantage-pro-pro-2-and-vue-communications-reference-2-6-1-any-os From memory, the logger can be accessed on defau...

Re: Detaching temp sensor to put in Stevenson Screen

Don't forget Davis part 7346.221 which is the standard current (SHT31) VP2 T/H sensor with a 25ft/7.6m cable. Having said which, I'm not sure whether we have any stock or not (though we may do), but if there was any interest/demand then this could be rectified fairly quickly.

Re: Vantage Vue

Davis sell a box called "WeatherLink Live" which seems to do just what you ask for - connects to the sensors, sends data to any device on your LAN... But be careful: Weatherlink Live (WLL) does not - currently at least - work with Cumulus(MX). Any software has to contain routines to listen for the ...
