(Clouds are a very appropriate background!)
The weather data at Langdale Road in Crewe is gathered by an Davis Vantage Pro2 Wireless weather station.
The weather station consists of number of components:
|1||A solar powered Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) mounted in the garden at approx 2m from the ground, consisting of a rain gauge, a 24 hours Fan Assisted Radiation Shield (FARS) containing temperature and humitidy sensors and Solar and UV sensors.|
|2||An anemometer and wind vane, mounted at approx 10m from the ground in free space.|
|3||An Air Quality sensor mounted on a north facing wall.|
|4||A CCTV camera, with a view of the sky to the south west. This is connected to a video encoder, providing still images every 10 minutes and a live stream on request.|
|5||A console located in the house with a datalogger, which is in turn connecteced to a Lenovo L440 laptop running CumulusMX software, which shows the weather data in a graphical user interface and uploads to this website.|
The live data is received from the ISS every 2.5 seconds at the console. CumulusMX then updates the gauges page every 5 seconds and the other pages every 10 minutes.
