    Re: Cloudbase CU script ex Bashewa

    I installed it yesterday in a Saratoga Template, and it seems to be working fine. Follow instructions, some work on the template, and it works first try. Don't have changed anything on the script.

    Thanks for the script

    Re: Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1071 - UV data with a decimal p

    I understand that easyweather.dat input method is deprecated, almost all recent weather stations have PC connection. Anyway, I hope at least this option remains as it is the only way possible for all who use homemade stations, based on microcontrollers like Arduino. Currently from my original statio...

    Re: Cumulus 1.9.4 beta build 1071 - UV data with a decimal p

    Also I noticed what may be a small bug. Using easyweather.dat as input method, the names of the data fields (Light, Solar Rad, UV) in the Solar Section, are only shown correctly if in the station setup menu I activate the option "use B/L". If this option is not active, the fileds are show with the n...

    Yes I know. We talked about it ...
    It would be good that the field could also accept data with a decimal point. The resulting graphs would look much better.

    Thanks for your attention

    Re: Homebrew Davis Solar sensor

    Just a photo-diode and an op-amp (well two op-amps actually, but only one is required). The diode I used is the BPW34, but it is a bit too large really, the current draw of my sensor is a little more than the Davis - but only significantly (10's of mWs) when the sun is shining, so the solar charger...

    Re: decent stand alone UV sensor?

    Thanks, yes that's an "interesting" device which certainly offers the potential for far better accuracy than (say) a FO 308x station. However, I am a little concerned that it was already "discontinued" at the first supplier I found, and the second (DealExtreme) have rather a reputation for selling ...

    Re: decent stand alone UV sensor?

    With an Arduino and this module (UVM-30A UV Sensor Module) I believe you can do a decent UV-B sensor. The problem is how to make the data avaiable to Cumulus.

    Re: Rainfall rate graphic does not update

    Perhaps it didn't get to read the files with the rain rates in them before they were overwritten? This is an important clue!!! I think you can be right, possibly the data is overvritten, before Cumulus can read it. I will investigate this possibility and report back. Many thanks for this clue. Rega...

    Re: Rainfall rate graphic does not update

    The easyweather.dat file is created by an Arduino. The rainfall rate data is present on the file, I have checked that. I post two images, hope they help to see the problem.

    Rainfall rate graphic does not update

    I'm using latest Cumulus version, and easyweather.dat file.

    Since two days the rainfall rate graphic is always with a line at zero point. It was worked nicelly before, even with this latest version. I have checked the easyweather.dat file and the rainfall rate data is there.
    Any sugestion? a bug?

    Re: Converting Lux to W/m2

    Hi

    What formula was been adopted in Cumulus for Fine Offset stations conversion from Lux to W/m2 ?

    685 Lux= 1W/m2 or 1 Lux = 0,0079 W/m2

    Thanks
