Re: Fine Offset parts source?

I've always found that a bit of wd40 frees the bearing up for another few years. Unless of course the bearing is completely frozen.

Re: Wh1080 weather station not working

Just a suggestion. If you're running on a Dell gx620 then I assume Windows is installed on it somewhere? If not why not install Windows and use the original Cumulus 1 as it works pretty well apart from a few Fine Offset quirks. None of these constantly changing Unix problems that must really frustra...

Re: Intermittent wind speed in Fine Offset WH1080

Perhaps a connector or cable problem. Did they supply a new cable?

Re: WS1080 indoor temperature sensor?

Used my spare on the outdoor sensor but I am sure there are a lot of defunct indoor displays sitting around with members.

Re: Data flatlining

Bumped it up to 1 degree and will see what happens. Will take it higher if required.
Why would a low setting make the data flat-line. I thought it was to limit the height of the spike when there was a spike?
What do other people have the temperature spike removal set to?

Re: Data flatlining

Yes, set at 0.3C and that hasn't changed.
Mind you I have had to remove spikes larger than that at times so perhaps the spike removal is not working.
Also interesting is that the temperature spike removal is the only one operational under "Spike Removal"

Re: Data flatlining

WH-1081 Weather Station. Slightly different problem but possible the same cause. I get just the outside temperature flat-lining at around 7am each day. It was intermittent but is turning into very regular now. Strange thing is that it is only the Outside Temperature that flat-lines. Easy to fix by g...

Re: Fine Offset temperature sensor glitch

I've been using a 1081 in Auckland for around 10 years and started to have problems at various times. Lots of repairs to bad manufacturing but in general the system worked OK. I decided to replace with a 1093 as the outside units were getting a bit weather-worn. Tried 2 of the 1093's and they were j...

Re: 3000 days of Cumulus!

Not very far apart. Last move was about 10K as the crow flies but in Auckland that can make a bit of difference.

It will work without any peripheral sensors. Just show temp & humidity.
What does the red LED do when synching?
