Gill WindObserver II windspeed of 73.1 m/s or 0 m/s
« on: October 08, 2018, 07:04:54 AM »
Hi, I cant get my Gill WindObserver II to work whit weatherdisplay.
I'v read the thred https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,37273.msg305937.html#msg305937

wind direction seem to be OK, but the windspeed is 0 m/s and every now and then it shows 73.1

the data I recive from WO2 looks almost identical to the data of the abov thred exept for min is showing 65, insted of thred over show 00

here is output from tera term (hyperterminal)

A,256,012.95,M,65,03
A,253,014.26,M,65,08
A,252,013.20,M,65,08
A,256,014.36,M,65,0C

my WO2 config is :
A0 B3 C1 E1 F1 G0000 H2 J1 K1 L1 M2 NA O1 P1 T1 U1 V1 X1 Y1 Z1

im using WO2 whit peet Bros ultimeter 2100 and some 1wire sensors.
WD is 10.37s81

edit: If i change the wo2's ID, from A to Q, i dont get 73.1m/s but 0.1m/s

is it a bug ? or do i have some config error ?

Hi, after trying all sorts of combinations i managed to get the gill windobserver II working how ever there is some isues

the working config for me and data structure is :
Q,254,006.59,M,00,17
Q,254,006.26,M,00,1F
Q,288,004.74,M,00,1B

current configuration :
A0 B3 C1 E1 F1 G0000 H1 J1 K1 L1 M2 NQ O2 P1 T1 U1 V1 X1 Y1 Z1

if you se at the structure the 65 is now 00, i have a heated version  and it was enabled H2 setting  but i did not power it, so i guess 65 is an error code of some sort, teling me there is somthing wrong, and breaking somthing for weatherdisplay.

Else i did not get it to work whit windobserver as Id A  but it works ok whit Id Q

the id can be changed whit a terminal program(hyper terminal), connect to the instrument and issue a * it enters configmode, then press N followed by the id you want Q as we have to here. and then Q to quit configmode

when i get the 24v power I'l test whit heater on and se if it stops working agen.
Hope this helps others trying to get the windobserver II working.
