Instromet Data Logging (remote location)

Post by Phil_822 »

Hi all,

I am desperately seeking some help!
I recently purchased an instromet weather station for monitoring conditions in a remote location.
Cumulus was used to configure the station and the dashboard showed the sensors were all working correctly.
I then disconnected cumulus under the impression that the data logger within the control box would continue to store weather information during the deployment period (up to 3 weeks). When reconnecting to the device with cumulus at a later date there was no weather data to be found.

Does the device need to be connected to cumulus 24/7 to produce this information?

Hi,

Presumably you are using CumulusMX. I am not familiar with the Instromet but from the CumulusMX settings it does appear to have a logger so that CumulusMX can catch up the data after a stop and restart at a later time/date. What do you have in Station settings > Advanced Options > Records Began Date?

Also, you can check the MXdiags log file covering the restart time and see if anything is logged there.

Enjoy,
Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Sorry yes I am using Cumulus MX.
The records began date was the 27th May 2024 and the MX Diag file show the program was looking for data as far back as then but no entries were found.
I have the station set to log data every 10 mins and each time I have deployed the station for testing no data was recorded.

Thanks again

Phil

Have you tested via another route if the Instromet data logged contains the data? It could be that it isn't there?
