WMR88A Question

Post by phipps » Tue 10 Jun 2014 1:32 am

I am new to PWS and have an OS WMR88A.

I downloaded Cumulus today and am in the process of getting it set up.

I have a question about the datalogger interval. My understanding is the WMR88A does not have a datalogger. What should I set the Cumulus datalogger setting at? Does this setting control how often Cumulus reads data from my station?

I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get familiar with this software and my weather station.



Thanks,

Gary

You can set the Cumulus interval to whatever value you want. A lower interval gives you more detail to look at later, but causes larger files. I suspect that most people use 5 or 10 minutes - I use 5 minutes myself.

This doesn't affect how often the data gets read, Cumulus has no control over that anyway - the station just sends data for each sensor as it arrives.
