Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

Great! This is the first report of someone actually running a relay apart from me. :clap:

Have you tried moving the solar sensor to the wind transmitter yet?

Re: Time range for popups

Right, the next question is are you using the JSON data, or a SQL database? JSON - It just graphs all the data provided by MX, so you would have to change the MX config for Graph Hours, but that will affect all the Cumulus graphs. SQL - The graphSettings.php has a parameter to control the period. $G...

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

The console radio screen has a field which shows the frequency correction applied to lock on to the transmitter - adjust the correction to get that bouncing around zero. (mine is normally between +/- 1) Without the frequency adjustment it was up in the 20's.

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

I thought the serial commands are in the Readme file - but it looks like I didn't update it with the latest features! .... The sketch implements a number of serial commands to configure some aspects of behaviour: tn.nnnnn (where 1.2 < n.nn > 0.8) - Sets the timer adjustment factor to compenstate for...

Re: Boltwood OneLine Log Output

As a starter for the "new format" try something like... <#date format="yyyy-MM-dd"> <#timehhmmss> <#tempunitnodeg> M 0 <#temp> 0 <#wspeed> <#hum> <#dew> 0 <#IsRaining> <#IsRaining> 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 You will have to change the windspeed unit manually, and I have no idea what those en...

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

It should work - it works fine with my console running ver 3.12 - and I think the author of VP tools has checked the code out and got it working. Do you get any sort of lock at all? I used a SDR dongle to check it was actually transmitting - and used that plus the reception stats to 'tune' the frequ...

Re: Add more data to realtime.txt

You will have to create your own custom file. The Wiki has details of the realtime.txt file and the equivalent web tags, take that as your base and add what you want to it.

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

You are supposed to solder the antenna wire to the board, but if you have a push fit it should be OK. The "no soldering" was for making data/power connections. :lol: The transmission ID is set here... #define TX_ID 2 // 0..7, Davis transmitter ID, set to a different value than all other tr...

Depends if you are using Cumulus or CumulusMX plus the static graphs package I put together?

Re: Boltwood OneLine Log Output

There are two problematic fields in there - "Since" and "Now", Cumulus cannot generate those fields for you. So you would be looking at using something like PHP on your web server to generate them and create the data file, or a local script that takes to Cumulus data and generate...

Re: Backgroundimage

Yes you could do this - *if* you use Cumulus to generate the forecast. You need to look at the web tags available from Cumulus - http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Webtags If you use the station forecast then you would have to perform parsing of the forecast text to determine the image to use. The forecas...

Andrea, can you post the file format required, then we can see if Cumulus can generate that file for you.

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

It just needs power, the USB socket is the most convenient way of powering it, as small phone charger will do if you aren't going to connect to a computer pi long term. I recommend you do to begin with so you can see the diagnostic output over the serial port.

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

Ah, my mistake, yes the US and Aus use the same frequencies (Aus is a sub set of the US due to mobile phone frequencies). I have my relay sat almost next to the console, high power too close *can* cause issues. I not sure how much more power the "H" units put out, not much I suspect. My st...

Re: Davis VP2 Relay Device

Herb, For Aus you will want the 915 MHz model. Which one depends on what range/connect it. The LoRa requires a different 3rd party library - I have no experience of using this. The CW is the standard model - fine for this application The HCW is the higher power version - not need unless your console...
