Mebus TE923 / Honeywell TE923W / Irox USB pro
« on: April 10, 2006, 06:14:32 PM »
I can`t find my Mebus TE923 on the List. It is made by Hideki Electronis Ltd and also sold as Honeywell TE923 W. What Station settings are the correct selection for this usb Weatherstation?

Hi
is that the new one just out on the market?
Do you know any information about the data protocol?
does it show up as a USB to serial device in device manager (i.e does it need drivers to be loaded up?)
or is true USB data connection

Hi Windy,

i bought it new. Before i owned a ws2300, but this new one looks better. The windspeeds are correct now.That was the main reason to switch to another station.
The manual says nothing about the data protocol. I didn`t need any driver for the station. It came with an own software called WeatherView and you can download the software and manual at http://www.mebus-electronic.com/
By the way you don`t need 14 AA`s it came with a dc powersupplie for the mainstation. You need for the sensors 8 AA`s.

does the software produce a log file that WD could read in?

The logfile is called records.txt it looks like this:

Year   Weekday   Month   Date   Hour   Minute   InTemp (degC)   InRH (%)   CH1Temp (degC)   CH1RH (%)   CH2Temp (degC)   CH2RH (%)   CH3Temp (degC)   CH3RH (%)   CH4Temp (degC)   CH4RH (%)   CH5Temp (degC)   CH5RH (%)   UV (UVI)   Baro (hpa)   Weather   Wchill (degC)   Wgust (MPH)   Wspeed (MPH)   W_Dir   RainCount   
2006   1   4   10   18   59   21.5   38   8.8   59   999.0   999.0   999.0   999.0   999.0   999.0   999.0   999.0   999   1019.8   Little Cloudy   5.8   14.4   8.6   173   0

Sixpak. I highlited this product in another thread today, as a new product on the market.

Can you give us a few specs on it?

how often does it read the wind speed, how often to update readings etc.  Where are you and where did you get it from, also whats your first impressions?

regards
Woody

Hi,
before the mebus/honeywell i owned a ws2300 station.
The Mebus looks better than the LaCrosse WS2300. The Windsensor is much better ;-)
The sensors works fine, even the UV Sensor. The Main Unit stores 200 records and is linked via usb to the pc. Memorysaving interval is 1 hr without a pc. The intervals for the senors are:
tHERMO-hYGRO  47 sec
Rain                183 sec
Wind                 33 sec
UV                 300 sec
Inddor               10 sec

And yes it is true i am from Germany on a small island  called Juist in the northsea. The island is about 500 meters wide and 17 km long.

It is like a wonder, the jumps are gone.
Thanks for that great work. One little think (i hope so) is not perfect working, but i hope you will fix it also.
Again thanks a lot for the fast help.
