Meteobridge Pro Hardware Failure

By: redpis, 8:33 AM GMT on January 07, 2017

My Meteobridge Pro needed resetting every few day, Boris from Smarttbedded remoted into the unit and found a hardware fault, the unit was returned to Germany for repair on the 4th Jan 17.

Without this unit I'm unable to send webcam of weather data from my station out to the internet, hopefully it will be returned soon and I can start publishing data again.

Changed Hardware to Meteobridge Pro

By: redpis, 2:54 PM GMT on December 17, 2016

I have always used a PC running 24/7 to manage my weather station via Weather Display software which is superb, the problem was the cost of keeping this on, which worked out at £370 per year in electricity.

Installing the Meteobridge Pro allows data to be uploaded to my site and other data users, obviously their are some things I have lost, but that the cost over benefit analysis :-)

FARS Fan Replaced

23 Jan 16 - Rather than wait until I had the PC fan and alarm monitoring sorted, I decided to simply replace with a 'like for like' motor from Jameco.com, I had bought 5 of these motors in 2014 and the replacement was really straightforward.

I did a simply blog which is linked here.

Fan Stopped Alarm

By: redpis, 8:42 AM GMT on January 16, 2016

I installed an aspirating fan to ensure a small air low around the external temperature sensor, this removes 'stale' or standing air and therefore marginally increases accuracy of the reading.

The Davis weather station modification is the installation of a low voltage fan, the problem I faced was that the fan motor failed and I had no way of knowing (without listening for the whir of the fan).

The project I'm working on will replace the Davis f...

WU and Radio Ham Mast Interface

By: redpis, 3:00 PM GMT on November 21, 2015

Now the wind has picked up, my interface to my antenna rotators works fine.

I send my weather station data to Weather Underground (WU), a rotator program (PSTRotator) has the ability to use WU data in order to determine the wind direction and this information is used to turn the antenna into the wind to reduce windage loading on the mast.
