Introduction: Cloud Hoppers - Arduino Weather Station

Picture of Cloud Hoppers - Arduino Weather Station

Simple Arduino Uno Weather Station with Ethernet web access using cheep Maplin sensors :) see PDF for description and Arduino code. You will need 1 Arduino Uno and the Ethernet shield + some strip board or a bread board to connect up the sensors. It will be powered from its own USB 5v supply :)

Please note the code is not perfect but it does work so give it a go :)

Step 1: Program the Arduino Uno With the Code Below:

Wire up the sensor using the diagram shown.

We are using Maplin sensors part numbers:

Anemometer £2.49 part number :- N25FR
Wind direction sensor £9.99:-N96FY

Step 3:

Here are the files for the full PDF description and the Ardunio code :)

Hi Excellent project. I am using it to control a greenhouse by opening and shutting vents when a safety wind speed is exceeded. Works good on uno but cannot get wind speed running on a mega card. Any suggestions please. Thanks

It probably is the interupt pin used for the pulse counting the code needs changing slightly for the new processor :)

Great design. I am working on something similar for a weather station for my local children's museum.
