VP2 datalogger

Postby laulau » Wed Aug 08, 2018 2:53 pm

Someone gave me a VP2 station(6312EU model 6152FR) in working order :) but without datalogger.

Is the BelfryBoy USB clone a good solution ?
Also fo CMX on a PI ?
Is it possible to update the console firmware with this clone?
If yes is it necessary ? i have 1.9 ?
Thanks in advance for your advices.

Congratulations on getting that, and presume in good working order?

I have not read any issues with using the BellfryBoy logger. I don't have one and don't know how it would be set up without the Weatherlink software. And sorry can't answer your other questions.

Should be no issues.

Have made a few loggers myself using the same components and they work just the same as the genuine Davis USB logger in all respects.

However, if you do not have the genuine logger and the Weatherlink software, then you will need software to make changes to the settings on the console for interval, speed etc. BelfryBoy does have a program for this which he has made avaialable here but he may supply it with the logger.
