UV Sensor What and Why
« on: August 14, 2019, 01:56:06 PM »
I finally purchased a WiFiLogger for my Vantage Pro and it is up and running.  Setup took some attention to detail but it is on line now.

I got my anemometer working as well. 

Now, when I look at the information on the Weather Underground website for my station I see the blank for UV information. 

My question, why should I install a UV sensor?  What are the benefits to me, to others if any.

Thanks.

Just in case you would like to see the data  :D

one issue with a Davis UV sensor is they tend to not last too long if you live in a place that gets high UV (the UV damages the sensor I guess...oh the irony)
