Air pressure is no longer updated (V1.9.4 b1100)

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Air pressure is no longer updated by Cumulus, even a restart of the software and a reset of the weather station did not succeed, who can help?

Thank you in advance

When you say it is no longer updated, do you mean in the Cumulus display? If so, what is being displayed where the pressure reading should be?

Thanks,
Freddie

Lucky, you need to supply the latest diagnostics file. Locate the Diags folder, right-click the latest file and choose Send to Compressed File. Then upload here.
Cheers,

(V1.9.4 b1100)
What have I missed?
I know our time changed a few days ago, but looks like I missed a whole build. I am still on the Cumusaurus MXCIX which is of the Troodon vintage.

Can anyone tell me where to find that new beast?

Enjoy,
Paul

You should be on build 1099. Builds 1100 and 1101 are specialist builds for Instromet users only.

Hi,
It looks like your calibration settings may be the cause

I'm no expert on decyphering the logs but this entry caught my eye.

29.11.2018 12:47:48.516 : EWUSB: Read pressure values: rel=1044,1 abs=584,1 offset =460,0

And there are multiple entries of these...

29.11.2018 12:51:12.663 : Pressure difference greater than specified; reading ignored
29.11.2018 12:51:12.663 : Old value = 1043,8 New value = 1043,5 EWpressurediff = 0,1

It looks like the absolute value of 584 is causing the pressure readings to be ignored. Maybe someone else can chip in.
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

Lucky,
Are you an Instromet user? then b.1100 or b.1101 is ok, otherwise you need to use latest build b.1099.

Enjoy,
Paul
