The final installation is already underway.
The sensor works perfectly. :D

Now there are only small details about the software.

For some reason that I do not know, at the beginning of a new day, the data, graphs ..etc, of the previous days, disappear (Except the first day of the registrations (2017/06/05)). :roll:

Settings:

- Installation directory : C:\BLsunrecorder
- Windows10

I installed the software on a laptop under Windows10; It is the only software (except Kapersky antivirus Total Security) working on this PC.

Solved !

The problem had originated with me, when setting the time setting.

Thanks to Ole's help, the problem is solved. :clap:

Today I start the solar recording, starting from zero

Blake-Larsen sun recorder and Cumulus

I do not understand how you can integrate BLsunrecorder in Cumulus.

I see the possibility configuration, check a box:

    "Use the Blake-Larsen sun recorder"

But I do not see other configuration options :groan:

From CumulusWiki
Called B/l on screen. Set this to 1 if you have a Blake-Larsen Sun Recorder, and you want Cumulus to get today's sunshine hours from it. You need to configure the Blake-Larsen software to put the SRsunshine.dat file into the Cumulus data folder so that Cumulus can read it.

As Laulau says, Cumulus reads the B-L file and from that records if the sun is shining and the sunshine hours. This is then included in the Cumulus month log and dayfile files as Sunshine Hours for the day, and displayed in the standard Graphs.

I trust this is helpful.

Enjoy,
Paul
