Error when booting MX

I've installed MX on a seperate SD card for another weather project using the basic WH1091 WX Station, when I went to boot Cumulus up, I was greeted with this error, it did not come up before tho, only just today, any reason why? It's all a fresh batch from the start including MX download so I am co...

Re: error 32701

By memory that error is no communication to the station. Because you have restated the console due to a battery change, your PC probably changed the COM port to a different number. So you will have to experiment by finding what COM port its in or take the easy way out and use WeatherLink to communic...

Serial port failure

HI Steve, Woke up to find my station had been 'flatlining' and went to see what the Pi was showing was a bunch of errors (see Diag folder), Via WU it stopped around 3:30PM 28th June (Adelaide, Australia, CST Time) Could this be the fact its not plugged into the USB port on the Pi itself as I have th...

Re: Solar Data and Max solar data out of sync

Shouldn't be any of them
- Timezone set to Adelaide (+9:30)
- longitude and latitude copied from Cumulus 1.9.4 so it's exact (well a couple metres up the road)
- solar sensor is straight

Didn't have this problem with 1.9.4

I'll have a closer look to see if it does the same on the Pi

Solar Data and Max solar data out of sync

I also have MX running on a Win 7 laptop for the moment until an adaptor arrives fro my Pi so it can have Internet connection, going to have a VP attached it to also use WD. As I'm browsing through the records I've noticed the solar and max solar data are out of sync with each other by at least 3 1/...

Unknown Error popping up when closing Rasp Pi2

I'm all new to the raspberry pi thing but I am surprised myself that I managed to install it. However upon closing MX on the Pi, an error came up and told to Zip up the file (see attached) Also I am going to Run the Pro 2 via this method, how do I determine what COM port is used so the station and M...

Re: Archive Realtime.txt possible?

Cheers for the replies, I've downloaded Cumulus MX last night and finally figured out how to use it (not a PC code person) but do like the outlook so far

Archive Realtime.txt possible?

I've just discovered that Cumulus (after using it for years) does real time, is there a way to continuously archive the realtime.txt data or does it just refresh the one row at the set interval time?

Re: Davis anemometer cups not moving in light wind

My Pro 2 anemometer sites around 60cm apart from the FO WH1081 Anemometer but at an extra 1.2m, and my Davis anemometer will not move while the 1081 will move, it can read up to 6.1 before the Davis considers moving. Bearings and that are clean and still does it, beats me why but it's something I'm ...

Re: Possibility of flexibility over time for data?

When won't the feature request be long haha,

Not MX as I don't use that one, the one for PC is the one I mean, Cumulus 1 is the one I currently use.

I would use the Raspberry Pi that I have but the unit won't read the OS on the SD card for some reason even when I formatted it and re-downloaded it.

Cumulus not reading Davis Pro 2 Logger for archive data

Hi Steve, I went open cumulus on my Win 10 PC to upload the data to WU from my Pro 2, but Cumulus failed to download the archived data, as it went straight to live data, there was about 2 days worth of data on the logger. The Data logger is ticked on the menu so I'm not sure, it also did it yesterda...

Possibility of flexibility over time for data?

Out of curiousity with one of the latest release builds for cumulus, is it possible to have more control over the time of the data on when it restarts? I know with the midnight feature, all data resets at Midnight and 9AM resets at 9AM I was thinking this in mind so the user can customize what piece...

Re: Mine’s Bigger than Yours

Location UleyBury South Australia - Adelaide. I've been running cumulus since April 2011 but much heavier use since 2014 and running on two computers with one connected to the VP2Plus and WH1081. My most impressive rain rate was recorded on 12/12/12 in the mid afternoon at 3:25PM as a very intense m...

Re: Vue rainfall in windy conditions

You may have to install Guy wires which are wires that attach to the mounting post that your Vantage Vue is on to the ground or nearby posts to help support it. That will reduce the violent swaying of the station triggering off false rain, fine offsets do this also when no support is there and the g...
