Connecting to Environdata Weather Maestro
« on: January 28, 2019, 10:57:24 AM »
Hi
I'm trying to connect WD with a Maestro.  If I connect as an Environdata Weather Master 2000, the system appears to communicate ok (green light on data received and quality).  The debug file seems to be providing sensible data, however none of this is reported as 'current conditions' - e.g. current temperature reports as 13degrees consistently. 
It appears that the data from the Maestro isn't being mapped to the correct fields in WD.  Is this something I can edit?
Thanks!

Hi
can you post what shows under view , debug info?

Hi
It looks like a different format
that what it used to be
I will need to add an option to use this format and then you can test?

first beta

(extract to where you have WD installed (exit WD first))

That mostly worked, thanks. 
Reports RH at 90% despite it being 0.1% (sensor seems broken, still look into that).  Looks to be an error in that tag per the debug file, will past latest version below.
Not critical, but does this mean I can also pick up fields like Battery Voltage and display them?
Many thanks!
Scott

so the data is coming through now to WD?
I have not yet added parsing of the battery voltage but I can do that (and then you can add a custom tag  to the main screen for that )

Yes, that's right, data is coming through ok.  Except for humidity which is constantly reporting 90% - doesn't match input data. 
Thank you!

try a new update

humidity should work now and so should battery volts (e.g %batteryvolts% custom tag)

Thanks Brian, that looks to be working ok now.  I've got a few sensor issues to repair before I know that everything works 100%, but everything that is working on the Maestro is now reporting accurately on WD, so that's great!
Thanks for your help, much appreciated!
Scott

Hi Brian
I've got the sensors working now, but doesn't look like the data is coming through correctly for solar or barometric.  Here's the relevant lines:

raw data ->
  6    "Solar Radiation  <- end
raw data ->       " (SR41): +0000000.0 Wat<- end
raw data ->ts/m2
  7    "Barom<- end


raw data ->
  12   "Barometric <- end
raw data ->Pressure     " (BP40): +000599.96 hPa<- end


(the solar is zero as it's night time, and the barometric I still need to work out the calibration factors for - but both are working)

Also, each time I start the software I need to re-select the station type.  Should the software remember that?

Thanks
Scott

Hi Brian
Not quite right yet, here's how the solar looks in the debug file:

raw data ->
  6    "Solar Radiation         " (SR41): +000014<- end
raw data ->5.0 Watts/m2
  7    <- end

The barometric is also still split:

raw data ->
  12   "Barometric Pressure     " (BP4<- end
raw data ->0): +000000.00 hPa
<- end

Thanks for your help, much appreciated!
