WeatherCat General Discussion / Time on console (Davis VP1 wired)
« Last post by faymondo on September 07, 2018, 01:38:49 PM »
Had to unplug my David Vantage Pro 1 wired console this morning.

All back up and running now but any idea how I can get the time on the console to pick up from my connected computer and weathercat 2 software ?

Dear WeatherCat fans of the sky's many colorful moods,

Late summer isn't a particularly good time for me to capture colorful cloud formations, but we are seeing stronger shifts between high and low pressures centers than normally happen in late summer.  Yesterday a low pressure was departing to the North while high pressure was building in from the South.  That drove the marine layer in more energetically than usual and produced this colorful effect round about sunset:



Fog is what makes the San Francisco Bay area so special, so I'm always happy to see it make an appearance.  It isn't as common as it once was.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear Cabut, Blick, and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Now I think I realized what happened. I left #4 on in test mode, probably from the first set up over a week ago.
It must have drained the power from the capacitor. To complicate matters, I installed an anemometer transmitter and set the wrong ID . So both the iss and the anemometer were on the same channel.

Ah ha!  Yes that is exactly the sort of thing that could cause your station to stop transmitting.  Glad to hear it was just a "user error" and that Davis still has a flawless record of working out of the box.

Thank you both again [rockon]

Glad to help!   [tup]  That's why we come to this forum!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Man, I love it when someone figures out how to solve one of these weather hardware issues. Good for you for keeping after it until you found the solution. Glad to hear you are back in the backyard weather business.

Blic and Edouard,

Thank you!

Blic, if it were not for your post I would be sending the iss back. This morning when I checked test mode I did not see the test light blinking because the Az. sun here is so bright my old eyes could not see it, I guess . After Blicís post I checked the iss in test mode and it was blinking! So I went over everything again I noticed the dip switch problem, and corrected it. Everything appears to be working!

Thank you both again [rockon]

I assume you have tried tried switching DIP #4 to On? That is the test to see if the board is transmitting. If the LED does not flash when #4 is on, the board is not working.

Hi Blic and Edouard,

Thanks for the suggestions, however no joy...
The small transmit light does not blink at all on the inside of the ISS.
I am thinking there must be a hardware fault.
I have contacted RainmanWeather.com who will hopefully switch out this unit for a new one.

Let you know how that goes...
