Extra Sensors Log

Post by Werk_AG »

Hi Steve

No matter if the data comes from the data logger or not, I'm getting this on the ExtraLogxxxxxx.txt file:

Code: Select all

05-04-15;03:35;0,0;15,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;14,4;-33,9;0,0;0,0;0,0;0;54;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;NaN (Não é um número);5,8;NaN (Não é um número);NaN (Não é um número);0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0,0;0;0;0;0;0,0;0,0;0;0;

The error seems to start on the first field of the ten extra dew point values (22 to 31 (W to AF) )
Any idea about this? The dew point value seems to be correctly calculated and inserted for the extra sensor 2.

Thanks - MX has to calculate those values itself (the DLL did it for Cumulus 1) and I've forgotten to check for 'no value', so the humidity causes the DP calculation to fail. I'm also getting 73.9C for all of the extra temps (I have no extra sensors) which is 165F, so I'm forgetting to do the check for 255 before I apply the 90 degree offset.

Hi Steve

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
•Davis extra temps and DPs give invalid values when sensor not present - should be fixed in 3024
Unless I'm doing something wrong, it seems that 3024 don't have fixed it.

Code: Select all

Maybe it will be useful... Below is a picture with my extra sensors (6 and 7 are temp only sensors)

It's working for me. The code now checks for the 'not present' value of 255 before attempting to calculate the dew point. What value do you have for sensors which aren't present?

Thanks Steve. Certainly you are right, I think I'm not sending the 'not present' value of 255. I will check that and report back later.

That's it! I left the 'not present' sensors with a zero value instead of 255. I must remember to always follow the book... :bash:
It's working now for me too!
