UV WMR200?

Post by Ubbe » Wed 21 May 2014 4:24 pm

Hi

I have the UN800 UV sensor, but Cumulus dont display UV W/m2 values?
And does Cumulus record UV in to the "Records"

For me the only solardata that is diplayed is "Sun"
Would be nice to see the highest UV value of the day.....

Sorry for bad spelling! :roll:

It should be displayed in the 'solar' panel on the main screen, do you have that displayed but you just get zero? Do you have 'Display solar/extra data' selected in the display settings? What figure is the console showing? There is an outstanding issue in Cumulus due to the protocol spec I was working from apparently being incorrect, where it will show zero if the actual UV value is 16. I don't think I've released the fix for that yet.

It doesn't measure W/m2, it's an index from zero to about 20. Cumulus puts the value in the logs and shows today's high value as a mouseover. There are web tags for today's and yesterday's high value and time. A future version may extend that to other records.

Yes i have ticked the display solar/extra data, So thanks Steve!
Hope for some solar higs and lows in the future then.. ;)

I have maybe another dumb question, In the Year records what temperature is the same as average temp over the year?

Nice to see what year was warmest or coldest!
Folks at my job, always argues about this.... :mrgreen:

Cumulus doesn't keep a track of which year was the warmest or coldest. You could look at the 'This Year' display or the NOAA report for each year, and find the warmest and coldest manually from the mean temperature displayed there.

Ok!, where does the NOAA report get the data from?

And mean temperature is that like average temp.... :?

Yes, mean temperature is the same as average temperature. The NOAA reports (and the 'This Year' etc displays) get their monthly and annual average temperatures by averaging the daily average temperatures in dayfile.txt. The daily average temperatures are calculated by sampling the temperature every minute throughout the day.

Your station has a UV sensor, it does not have a solar sensor. It is not possible to calculate sunshine hours sensibly from a UV sensor, you need a solar sensor for that.
