Title: Weather station installation examples
Post by: elagache on October 18, 2013, 07:56:13 PM
Dear WeatherCat fans,

In the past we have had a thread in which WeatherCat users illustrated how they set up their weather station instruments to help others who are contemplating putting up a weather station.  We need to get this info back on the WeatherCat forum.  So get the process going I'll start a thread and hope others will follow suit.  Here is how my station is set-up most of this info coming from my weather website:

Canebas Weather Station uses a Davis Vantage Pro-2 weather station for the core of the weather instruments.  The particular model model (6152 (http://www.davisnet.com/weather/products/weather_product.asp?pnum=06152)) has the standard radiation shield.  However, the actual temperature and humidity data is supplied by a second Davis temperature/humidity probe (model 6382 (http://www.davisnet.com/weather/products/weather_product.asp?pnum=06382)) that is located underneath a deck and therefore completely escapes all solar radiation.   Below is a photo showing the weather instruments including an inset image of the temperature/humidy probe:

(http://www.canebas.org/Weather/Graphics/Exterior_sensors.png)

As can be seen in the photo above, the anemometer is mounted on a 10 feet high mast above the roof.  However, the house is in the wind shadow of a hill and tall trees.  Therefore the wind data does not represent the uninterrupted air flow.  All other data is believed to represent the ambient conditions at the station. 

The Davis Vantage Pro does not permit you to select which temperature/humidity probe is your primary data source.  So the only way to have the correct temperature data displayed was to plug the cable from the probe under the deck into the ISS jack for the temperature probe.  In order to get the data from the Davis temperature/humidity probe to be plugged into the ISS unit, a splice was needed that can be seen here:

(http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Canebas_hardware/Davis_splice.jpg)

Davis sells this cable splicing kit (07957 (http://www.davisnet.com/weather/products/weather_product.asp?pnum=07957))  The wire was standard 6-conductor phone wire.  I was able to buy cables with the standard phone jacks that Davis uses so that I didn't have to crimp on plugs.

The data from the temperature/humidity probe on the ISS unit is instead connected to a second transmitter that can be seen here:

(http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Canebas_hardware/Station_transmitters.jpg)

In order to get the cable from the ISS temperature/humidity probe to the second transmitter a second splice is needed as illustrated in the above photo.

The Davis VP-2 console is located in a central part of the house for the convenience of the household.  The wireless data is also received by a Davis Weather Envoy (model 6316 (http://www.davisnet.com/weather/products/weather_product.asp?pnum=06316)) which is connected to a MacBook Pro (mid-2009).  The Mac is running OS-10.6.x (Snow Leopard) and the weather software is WeatherCat.

Here is my workstation showing the setup:

(http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Canebas_hardware/Odysseus_setup.jpg)

There was one more modification that I had to make.  The Davis Weather Envoy internal thermometer wasn't giving me accurate measurements at first.  I realized the problem was insufficient air-flow around the unit.  So I built this wooden stand to provide sufficient air space:

(http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Canebas_hardware/Weather_Envoy_stand.jpg)

The internal temperature readings now are consistent with other thermometers.

 ;) . . . Okay gang, your turn to show off  (http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Custom_emoticons/yahoo.gif) . . . . . . err, Describe in detail how you installed your weather station for the benefit of others. (http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Custom_emoticons/scholarly_teacher.gif)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Here's our weather station. It started out as a Davis Vantage Pro2 w/24 hour FARS, but we added the solar and UV sensors over the next year, so i've ended up with the Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus w/24 hour FARS model #6163. I also started out with an Envoy connected to my computer, but ended up with a second Vantage Pro console (one in the kitchen and one on my desk.) I added the Davis Wireless Anemometer Transmitter when I moved the anemometer to the mast on my roof.

(http://www.morrisgarage.com/skitch/Setup_and_Testing_-_smorris__Photos_%7C_SmugMug-20131020-105911.jpg)


Davis sent a Soil Moisture and Wetness Station to review, and I ended up buying it after the review period. This is where the second console came from. Since the photo, I've added two more soil temperature and two more soil moisture sensors.

(http://smorris.smugmug.com/Weather/soil-moisture/i-jz4F2Nt/0/XL/DSC_0011-XL.jpg)


As seen in the photos above, I have a CoCoRaHS rain gauge near the Davis ISS. I also have the CoCoRaHS ETGage (evapotranspiration simulator) mounted near the back of my property adjacent to an open field. This ensures almost full sunshine sunrise to sunset. Depending on the time of year, I get slightly different readings between the ETGage and the VP2 evapotranspiration calculation.

(http://smorris.smugmug.com/Weather/ETGage/i-B4b3jX2/0/X2/DSC_0009-X2.jpg)


I've also got a Campbell-Stokes Sunshine Recorder made by Casella (used more as a weather related decoration more than for actual readings. The paper is quite expensive!) And a Kestrel 4500 handheld weather station with the optional mount and vane. This is me on the observation deck at Clingman's Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Hi Edouard, Steve and you all out in the storms!

Will report my setup within a few days/weeks. I just ordered a mountain tripod from a Davis reseller here in Austria, and will mount my anemometer on our roof as it is done by Steve. Till now I have mounted it like you can see HERE (http://wetter.unterwurzacher.at/station.html), but I think you can imagine that the whole construction may became unstable at higher wind speeds. ???  ;)

Reinhard

Dear Steve, Reinhard, and WeatherCat fans,

Thanks Steve for digging up the photos of your station install! (http://www.canebas.org/Weather/LWC_forum/Custom_emoticons/thankyou.gif)  You've done a great job with your setup!!  [tup]


I'm looking forward to your report Reinhard!  :)  Looking at your website, indeed your anemometer is a bit vulnerable.

Indeed, everybody has to set up their station a little differently.  So having a bunch of examples here is helpful for WeatherCat newcomers.

So please gang, keep those pictures and descriptions coming!!

Thanks Reinhard for documenting your weather station instruments so nicely!  [tup]

Quick question though, how did you secure your anemometer tripod into your roof?  That looks like a lovely old-fashioned roof.  Did you have to do anything special to get the tripod legs tied down and avoid any leaks?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Post by: wurzelmac on October 24, 2013, 10:25:54 PM
Hi Edouard,

for that I have tiles on my roof, I needed three plumb-tiles like this to mount the tripod:

Here you are a closer view to the bottom of the mounted tripod:

Hi Reinhard and WeatherCat hardware tinkerers,

for that I have tiles on my roof, I needed three plumb-tiles like this to mount the tripod:

Thanks for filling in that detail!  I assumed your roof required something special to allow you to attach the tripod and the plumb-tiles was exactly the missing ingredient.  I don't know if any other WeatherCat user will ever have as unique an anemometer installation, but it should give our users some new ideas about what is possible.

Thanks again!  [tup]

Hi WeatherCat Users


On my installation I used an installation from the VP ISS manual
I bought a nice straight 4x4 10' long and buried it 3 feet in the ground making sure it was level on all sides
Then I mounted the ISS on the south side of the pole so it would be in contact with the sun for the solar power then I bought a 1 1/4 galvanized pipe and put on the north side and made it so you can unbolt 2 bolts and lay it over and it is still connected to the 4x4
With the pipe mounted back straight up with the anemometer attached and with plastic ties every 2 feet on the pipe to keep the wire from the anemometer from flapping in the wind this puts the anemometer 20 feet in the air it is in sight of my web cam so I can also view it from the computer it is about 60 feet outside the window of my office where my VP2 Console is mounter on the wall
A very easy installation but should work well and with a small step ladder can clean the rain collect very easy


cheers

Howdy Randall and WeatherCat Davis elite club members,

Hmm, a very nice and clean installation indeed!  I really like that way to set up your station Randall!!  [tup]  Anyone who can put up their anemometer above the trees by going 20 feet should definitely consider your setup.  I sure wish I could have done it as you have!

Some wonderful weather setups in some very attractive settings here. 

Mine is much more modest.  We live in an urban area in a subdivision.  The home had a basketball pole next to the driveway when we bought it.  But no one in the family really cared much about basketball.  So I took down the hoop and backboard and used hose clamps to attach the Davis Vue mast to the top of the basketball pole.  Not ideal, but very functional.

The Console is about 100 feet from Vue, but I seem to get very good reception.  In the photo, you can see my re-born Apple G4.  I didn't take very good photos of the process, but I followed the post here to build it.  http://www.tonymacx86.com/powermac-g4/91958-another-g4-power-mac-mod-sandy-bridge.html

Looks like a perfectly nice setup.  Glad you were able to get your Vantage Vue into a position were it should get good wind data.  Up there you shouldn't have too much trouble with debris in the rain gauge either.

Hi there!

I've had a standard wireless Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus running for a couple of years now, and I have just about the easiest installation imaginable. I'm sure that some folks may have issues with my setup, but it works fine for me and provides good data in an area with very few weather monitoring stations. Here's a photo:

The sensor package is located in a large, flat field with no nearby obstructions. I've simply anchored the tripod that came with the weather station using three concrete blocks. The top of the sensor package is about 7 feet above ground level.

The receiver is about 100 yards away and is connected to a Mac Mini running WeatherCat software. I upload data to CWOP and Weather Underground, generate a simple web page from WeatherCat (just for the fun of it... Working on a custom page for the same reason), and post conditions hourly to Twitter.

Title: Second the motion. (Re: Weather station installation)
Post by: elagache on December 07, 2013, 09:32:56 PM
Hi Charlie, Randall, and WeatherCat fans,

I second Randall's motion.  If your anemometer is high enough to get accurate wind data (and it looks like it does,) what else could you want?  I suppose you could secure your tripod a bit more "assertively" in case you get hit by some really high-winds.  However, what's the likelihood winds strong enough to tip over your tripod wouldn't damage some of the weather instruments?  Unless you've observed weather conditions that could threaten your setup, I agree:

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I live at 8,300 feet (2,530 meters) in the Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah. My Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus is mounted atop the swing set I built for the grandchildren. The anenometer is mounted on the top of my cabin on the end of a 3-meter pole which is bolted into the end of a glu-lam beam. This gets the wind cups about 2 meters above the highest point on my roof, which is about 12 meters above the ground. I ran 30 meters of exterior-grade, waterproof Cat5 cable up to my rooftop and spliced it into the anemometer. The other end is spliced into connector cable inside the ISS unit. I use the WeatherLinkIP™ data logger so I can place my Davis Console downstairs where I spend most  of my time. I display WeatherCat on the secondary display of my iMac. My most frequently used means of accessing my weather data is the WeatherCat app on my iPhone, followed by the WeatherCatPad app on my iPad. My next project is a weather webcam, pending approval of my CFO, to whom I have been happily married for almost 8 lustrums (4 decades).

I don't have a lot of photos of my setup, and being on a trip right now, I can't take any currently. However, here is my station and the post I put it on. The console connects to a Meteobridge which runs my meteobridge saratoga site here (http://www.castlehillsnorth.com/meteo/). WeatherCat finds the IP of the meteobridge and treats it like it is a Weatherlink IP connection. The computer that runs WeatherCat and my main weather site (http://www.castlehillsnorth.com) is a 2011 iMac.

My station is a Davis VantageVue, in continuous operation since January 2010. ISS is mounted atop a 20-foot telescoping aluminum flagpole. The pole is $179 from SunSetter with free S&H. Works great (have another with a ham antenna mounted). http://www.sunsetterflagpole.com/

Console is on the desk next to the iMac running the software. For the first 6 years it ran on a Mac Pro, until that machine was retired. Then on a Mac mini until yesterday when it failed. Ported it over the iMac last night and upgraded from LWC to WeatherCat. I have been asked for my weather data from our town offices from time-to-time for analytical purposes. My feed goes to NOAA as DW4348 and into Wunderground as KAZCLARK7.

Just thought I would contribute since I have been looking at everything again after the system change last night. Only lost about 6 hours of reported data, though it was saved in the logger for my records.

Cheers!

Dear Nick and WeatherCat station caregivers,

Since this is your first posting on the WeatherCat forum.  Let me be the first person to welcome you aboard! . . . (http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/Custom_emoticons/welcome_smiley.gif)

My station is a Davis VantageVue, in continuous operation since January 2010. ISS is mounted atop a 20-foot telescoping aluminum flagpole. The pole is $179 from SunSetter with free S&H. Works great (have another with a ham antenna mounted). http://www.sunsetterflagpole.com/

Thanks for sharing!  The SunSetter flagpole is a great solution to an issue that has always worried me with the Vantage Vue.  To avoid getting debris in the collector cone, you really need to have the station up high.    That also provides for the best wind data.  I assume that if you need to bring the station down, the SunSetter pole will simply retract into its telescoping sections.

Just one question though.  How does flagpole cope with the weight of the Vantage Vue?  I would expect that this at least could be a greater burden than a flag.

Console is on the desk next to the iMac running the software. For the first 6 years it ran on a Mac Pro, until that machine was retired. Then on a Mac mini until yesterday when it failed. Ported it over the iMac last night and upgraded from LWC to WeatherCat. I have been asked for my weather data from our town offices from time-to-time for analytical purposes. My feed goes to NOAA as DW4348 and into Wunderground as KAZCLARK7.

Wow!  So you have been running LWC since 2010 until now?  I also started out with LWC (about 3 months before you did,) but I've really appreciated the enhancements in WeatherCat.  I think you will also!

Just thought I would contribute since I have been looking at everything again after the system change last night. Only lost about 6 hours of reported data, though it was saved in the logger for my records.

So did you lose any data or not?  WeatherCat should download any data that is missing from the data logger.

Once more welcome!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I have had the this setup since 1993. Before that I and a Davis WMII.   I have a VP2 Plus, two anemometers  with one to a wire anemometer transmitter.   That is in case  one of the units isn't working, such as due to critter or freezing rain.   When I set up the mast  I was younger. Now that mast isn't coming down in case the top unit craps out.

I have a FARS kit as well.   Then there is the soil moisture unit..    I have with that a completely populated soil/moisture station at 4, 12, 24 and 36 inch depth.   Also a leaf wetness sensor.  When my ISS needed a new super cap, my arm was in a cast, so I  purchased a new board and with the old waited until I healed and replaced the super caps and decided that I could use a soil temp. sensor for surface temperatures, and I had a spare solar panel unit.   So that is there.     

I also have a Bloomsky2 camera out there,  in the family room window, I have a Foscam R2 camera for the South sky, and another peeking out the front window at the North sky.
Oh I have a temp humidity sensor in the attic and one in the basement and yet another in the crawl space. I am almost fully populated.  I have one transciever spot open.   

I have one console in the kitchen, another by my iMac that has an ip logger,  Two Envoys  one with a IP logger for the Weatherlink 2.0 site  and the other for my website . The other is a USB that I use with Weathercat and Weatherdisplay .   It is my website backup, so if the IP loggers crap out,  I can go natural.

One rule I have always reminded people of, where ever you happen to put your weather station, remember you have to do maintenance on it.  If you put things on the roof be sure you can get up there in various weather conditions without bouncing  off the roof and amazing your neighbors.

Thanks for sharing your station setup!   [tup]  Indeed you have created quite a collection of data collectors!

One rule I have always reminded people of, where ever you happen to put your weather station, remember you have to do maintenance on it.  If you put things on the roof be sure you can get up there in various weather conditions without bouncing  off the roof and amazing your neighbors.

Indeed so true!   I didn't know what I was doing when I setup my station, but lucky for me, most of the components that need frequent servicing are easy to reach.  When I switched from solar power to AC power for the station transmitter, I moved the transmitter under a deck, so that too is easy to service and out of the elements.

Now that this thread is getting some attention, anyone else willing to share how they set up their weather station?

Neat! I'm not too fond of the color of stone you used, but some localities insist on "Earth Tone" colors.

I also like the ability to adjust the verticality (is that a word?) with those bolts. I would suggest they have a lock washer and nut to prevent any mechanically inclined (no pun intended, of course) squirrel from making "adjustments". Better safe than sorry! 8)

A church I used to go to decided to build a couple of baseball diamonds. The city said fine. After they were built and fenced, the city said, "We don't like the (galvanized) metal posts, chain-link fencing and backstop. They can be seen (through the young evergreen trees) from the street. Paint them black or an earth tone color." [banghead]

After the painting was done, I told the contractor, who was a friend, that the city was not pleased that he did not use a flat style paint! I suggested he sandpaper over all the surfaces... I had no idea he had such high blood pressure! [roll]
