Hi Wolfgang,

I saw you have updated the weather radio devices. Did you also published other code peace’s like python rrd scripts?

Thanks Gunter

Hi Gunter,
I just updated weatherradio.py and wr_rrd_update.py. If you start wr_rrd_update.py with the "-v" option, you should get debugging infos so that you can trace down where the script hangs.

Oh, yes, you are right, will follow.

Since version 1.8, small OLED displays with SSD1306 chips are supported. Connecting the display itself is quite trivial, since the display can be attached to the I2C bus.

Additionally, you need to add a push button to one of the digital ports of the Arduino. The port can be configured with the RAINSENSOR_PIN variable in config.h. The button should connect the digital port to +5V/+3.3V if it is closed. Additionally, add a 47k pull down resistor connecting the port to GND.

HTH

Ok I will check in my box what I have. I would build a "big version" with all including wind direction and speed and other "small" versions with screen and basically SQM sensor provided by the TSL237. In my previous test TSL2591 does not provide much precision

I‘m currently experimenting with a RG-11 rain sensor. Hopefully I can provide support for it in the next days or weeks.

Wolfgang,

I've added support for simple rain sensors. Saw you were working on something similar so wrapped my code up in a pull request: github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/pull/278

Mark,
very good, and from a first glance the code looks good. I’ll add my comments to the PR.

Hi Mark,

did you consider a resistor heating for freezing protection for the sensor?

I have this for the luminance sensor. I'm working on some code to control this at the moment. Here's an image - on the left is the TLS2591 with a 15 degree lens and an acrylic dome and the dew heater ring, right is the rain resistance sensor, and bottom right is the MLX cloud sensor.

Looks great!

In case you want a simple solution for protecting your cloud sensor - here comes mine:

Using an acrylic dome did not work for me, since it is shielding IR too heavily. But the thin foil of a noodle package works fine :-)

Cheers
