View Full Version : Weather Station Serial Data

December 29th, 2016, 03:05 PM
I've bought an Argent Data Weather Station that has wind speed/wind direction/ Rain/Temp sensors
I am having an issue with the wind speed sensor. I currently have a USB to serial db9 cable plugged into the ADS-WS1 weather station and using puttytel I can read the wind direction, rainfall, temperature and humidity data. But as soon as the wind speed sensor begins to move it seems to generate "interference" I get a strange character appearing in the terminal, and it seems to pause/crash the unit. Any ideas?

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to let you know I found the issue.

I found a couple of solder bridges one was spanning pin 2 and 3 which is the wind speed and reset pins.

I've cleared the bridge and the strange character has gone. I'll run it for a while before I confirm that it's fixed :)
