DIY standalone Weather Station powered by Arduino
DIY Dual Monitor Stand for Less than $10
Very nice, love the simplicity of it, much better than an expensive piece of mass produced junk. Good job!
Hi,I’m irinakim and I’m work in the Wiznet.Thank you for using our product.We are collecting so much data using ourproduct.And I will post the this project on our Web site.( http://wiznetmuseum.com)Can I post your product on our Web site?
I once built an anemometer. IIRC, I had an opto-slot and a segmented disc. No matter. There are many different hardware designs, but all have the same problem: how do you calibrate it?
The North wind blows FROM the north. Yours indicates south, I guess? - betwys1
Suggestion: Try and break down your instructions to a little more detail in regards to the piping and connectors used, size/dimensions, etc. It is very vague on the build design. - ralema69
It appears your link to GITHUB is broken. It directs you to < http://goo.gl/W607yn> - buzz239
nice project, minor fly in the ointmentYour windvane arrow presents big surface, so it points in direction of where the wind is going. This is opposite of all windvanes in the world . Even the wind socks at airports point into the wind. - jn126
Yup, as pointed by @betwys1. Something went wrong while building, it seems.I will stick with the standard design Thanks mate
This project was community funded. as i told in the instructable. We had a bit of discussion on choosing the write dev board. At the inception we want to go by Wired connection. But it seems Wireless is far better. I will update the station soon. I got a good number of feedback from u peaple Thanks a lot. For the magnetometer part, We are using it as a digital Compass to measure Windspeed, but its still buggy. need a update. Thanks @tochinet
Temperature sensor is placed inside the anemometer. We did follow the standard design parameter for building it. The metal enclosure contains only Arduino Mega. We will be moving it soon. Will add changes in the next build. Thanks
Actually you can use a optoisolator, rather than a wifi module (to keep it cheap)
Cool build, I like it. One suggestion is to earth ground it for safety. Currently you have a lightning rod with the shortest ground path potentially through the CAT 5 into anything else physically connected at your hub or switch. You might also think about using a wifi module to completely isolate it.
