Re: Davis PRO2 and Daytime FARS

Or use a receiver and a raspberry pi and and decode the radio, most of the work has been done on that. Or as a cheaper option if you have a spare Pi then MeteoStick. (Actually I did mean to reduce the MS price now that MBPR is shipping, but it got overlooked - let me know Mark if you're interested)...

Re: New Davis TH sensor

Perhaps worth noting that Davis seem to have had a major rethink about pricing on replacement T/H sensors. No idea why, but it's obviously got to be good news for users. The UK SSP on 7346.074, which contains the new SHT31 sensor, is £45 inc VAT. (Admittedly set before the recent devaluation of Ster...

Re: Transmission and Battery strength

So is there no Signal strength value can be gain using CumulusMX? I know Weewx can report on the percentage of ISS Signal Quality, I was just curious as to whether CumulusMX had a similar feature. I doubt that weewx actually displays what is usually termed signal strength (RSSI - Received Signal St...

Re: VP2 coming out of setup mode on its own

I've had my second console for less than a year and I had never experienced this problem before. Just to be clear: Vue consoles have always done this but older VP2 consoles did not. It was introduced in a VP2 firmware update at some point - don't have the F/W changelog in front of me right now and ...

A couple of broad SS questions:

I can't quickly find this explained anywhere: realtime.txt is obviously the Cumulus realtime file in a very specific CSV format. But do I gather that customclientraw.txt is actually a JSON file and while eg targeted at WD users, this is effectively a generic format so that any other software that cr...

Re: Davis Vantage Vue - Low Battery Transmitter 1

I do not believe Vue's suffer from Supercap failures. They can do I'm afraid. The difference is that the supercap is not accessible in the Vue (other than by using some significant surgery, which most won't bother with) because the the transmitter circuit board is fully potted. If a supercap fault ...

Re: Pole diameter for Davis Vantage Vue

In practice that's not a good test. The inside temp sensor is inside the console case of course and so can only equilibrate slowly to ambient temperature (which it will never do anyway if the room temperature is changing). And even the ISS needs moving air to equilibrate at any reasonable rate. If y...

Re: Pole diameter for Davis Vantage Vue

To add to this, the optimum siting for a Vue is around 6 m... Well, sorry, but no. The whole point of my post is that there isn't one single optimum height - it depends on the site and the user's preferences. If 6m works for you then that's great - I'm sure that it measures wind speeds well. But fo...

Re: Pole diameter for Davis Vantage Vue

What do Vantage Vue owners consider a good height compromise? You have to decide which is the greater priority for you personally - wind readings or rainfall (and to a lesser extent air temp readings). You can't achieve optimal exposure for all readings simultaneously with a Vue. If wind is of most...

Re: Pole diameter for Davis Vantage Vue

mounted on a pole or rod having an outside diameter ranging from 1" to 1.75" (25 – 44 mm)." But 1" (25mm) really isn't recommended. Smaller diameter poles tend to have thinner walls and so a 1" pole really isn't stiff enough to reliably hold a Vue ISS long-term and in stormy weather. Best to go wit...

Re: Humidity Temperature on my Davis Vantage Vue

They could see it as an opportunity, and sell a 'harsh environment' sensor for a little more money - or reduce the price of the standard sensor a little ;) TBH it's enough of a nightmare at present with the introduction of the VP2 variants with the SHT15 sensor - I wouldn't want to encourage them t...

Re: Humidity Temperature on my Davis Vantage Vue

I still don't understand why Davis do not put the sensor behind a Gortex type membrane as Sensirion recommend for harsh environments. Sensirion even sell a chip enclosure for that purpose. Davis use a course mesh which is no potection against fine particulates. That's fair comment and I don't know ...
