Re: Watson W-8691

Hi, The rain and wind is transmitting fine. It's the temp and pressure that are not. Presumably you mean Humidity, the pressure sensor is in the Console. The causes of your problems may depend on the age of the station - not all Fine Offset stations are the same! You might find more information in t...

Re: Cumulus High Wind won't read over 50kmh

Hi, Welcome to the forum. What does the Console (LCD display) indicate for the maximum wind speed? Similarly, what about the normal (supplied) "Easyweather (plus)" software? You can download logged data to both applications, but they cannot be run at the same time. Is the maximum exactly 50 km/hr? I...

Re: Help Please Trying to set up maplin N25fr for Primary School

Hi, It looks as if the N25FR was the real "bottom of the range" station (even for Maplin) without a Wind Vane or computer interface, so you won't find much interest here on the Cumulus forum. It might be relevant whether yours is a "Primary" school (as in the OP title) or is more advanced. The best ...

Re: Can Cumulus software be used to calibrate hygrometer of WS-1080?

Hi, I've gone ahead and ordered a new temp/humidity sensor for my WS-1080. From where have you ordered that? It's a regular question on this forum and nobody (else) seems to have known the manufacturer or type number of any of the several types of T/H sensor fitted to the various FO stations. Cheers...

Re: Fine Offset 1080 suddenly more frequent lockups

Hi, Strange the UV info still comes thru. The UV (and Solar Lux) data is encoded in the "Solar Pod" and sent as a separate data packet directly to the "transmitter" section of the "External Unit" (via the 6-way cable into the "rain" socket). So obviously the radio transmitter itself is still functio...

Re: Fine Offset 1080 suddenly more frequent lockups

Hi, A couple of real "long shots", but I've also been having (different) problems with one of my trusty 1080s. Could there be a "2020 bug" in the software, or might the EEPROM simply have "worn out" (my issue started with some garbage data in the logging) ? I did notice that the lockups became more ...

Hi,

Your profile (still) shows your Operating System as Windows XP. AFAIK Cumulus MX (still) can't run under XP?

Re: No reception when it rains - OK when it's sunny

Hi, Energizer Lithiums deliver almost 2 volts (each) at light load, so the voltage shouldn't be an issue (unless it's too high! ). Do you have any "obstructions" between the transmitter and receiver(s)? Damp brick for example may reduce the signal quite considerably, particularly if 868 MHz rather t...

Re: Does anyone use wind measurement correction?

Hi, Wind speed similarly lower on Davis [17.1 km/h] than on Fine Offset [21.2 km/h] - ratio is 1.24 So, having considered all this, should I add a correction factor of +20% to the Davis wind speeds? Thanks for those interesting observations which appear to confirm that the OP shoould NOT introduce a...

Re: Does anyone use wind measurement correction?

Hi, The "official" measurement of wind speed should be 10 metres above an "open field" with no obstructions, which is practically impossible for most amateur stations (and should be taken into account by most users of the data). If you are "posting" data which you hope to be useful, then generally t...

Re: Change Log Interval

Hi,

It's a Windows Application called SetLogger.exe , which can be found as a .zip file in the Downloads or Wiki sections of this forum, or directly here.

Re: Photos of the insides of Fine Offset sensors.

Hi, Thanks for the detailed information and welcome to the forum. My apologies for the delay in replying, but I had hoped that somebody might "know" the answer, I can only "guess". Unfortunately, I have never had a Hall Vane sensor to test. I had assumed that the Hall Wind Vane was "compatible" with...

Re: Transmitter repair.

Hi, Sorry, rather late with this reply. I would make an assumption that I probably could run 2 (or more) identical transmitters (that is to say the same frequency, protocols etc) to be picked up by a single transmitter. No, whilst FO indeed use only a "one way" transmission system ("send and hope"),...

Re: WH2080 (WS-0101) receiver does not send data to computer

Hi, Probably Not. It depends on the exact "Brand" or "Badge" of the Weather Station, but in my experience (Clas Ohlson 1080, 868 MHz) the Wireless Protocol was changed from the Original (FSK) to the "new" (OOK) coding system around 2014. So a (868 MHz) model bought in 2012 is likely to be FSK whilst...
