|Our Weather Station - Technical Details:
For those of you who are interested in the technical details of our Weather Station, then here you are. It consists of:
1 x Oregon Scientific WMR-200A 433MHz
Cable Free (Wireless) Weather Station system
The system plays together quite reliably, all things considered. Both Virtual Weather Station software (an Ambient Software/LabView run-time application) and Cumulus continuously acquire, display and store internal data from the Oregon Scientific WMR-200A weather station on the same PC so that we can obtain accurate long term historical statistics and reports for our own use. The same two software applications also update the PC's display in real time and write the panels/gauges to hard disk every 1 or 2 minutes in jpeg format.
Virtual Weather Station automatically transfers various of these jpeg format files and the .html format details file (about 100kB and the absolute minimum of our more relevant data) via a 12Mb/s permanent ADSL link to our web site every 2 minutes using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and our weather pages are written to refresh any browser left sitting on them every 5 minutes also....
Cumulus also FTP uploads data to Weather Underground every 1 minute and you can observe/search our historical local weather data on that website by clicking on the logo to the left.
The PC synchronises itself to accurate time standards via the internet and is connected to our own internal 10MHz Ethernet Local Area Network as a Server. Any other remote device on our LAN can thereby access weather information also. Now that's really very useful as the data is available locally where and when it is needed...
So there you have it.
