Who has a HG-11 2020?

Post by Phil23 »

I'm constantly curious about this device.

Not so much in relation to accurate measurements, more so for the purpose of knowing it's likely sprinkling outside....

Who has one and what are your thoughts given there have bee no posts here in the last 5ish years.

Cheers

Hi I have one of these configured to let me know when it's raining. I work in a place with no windows, and it's handy to know if it is, so I can put wet weather gear on before cycling home.

I have only just moved from Cumulus to MX and I am struggling to find anything to say that this works with MX or how to configure if it indeed does.

In Cumulus it was highly reliable and detected the slightest amount of rain instantly. I had it updating my main webpage to show a cloud, with or without raindrops.

Not sure what I will do now if this no longer works..... just get changed in the wet no doubt! :|

Hi
RG11 works fine with MX when connected and set up as tip bucket

Does it not work as Cumulus 1 - connected to a serial port? All the code is in place for it to work.

The RS232 port was an nightmare having to add various components into the wiring. I think Steve just gave up on that method and concentrated on other things. I have mine connected exactly the same way as you would a tip bucket gauge and it works fine. The code might just be left from when this was first tested many years ago.

Forgot to say how many devices have serial ports these days
