Better late than never, this is our "4/15/11" update post. We've been busy, but images talk.
The basic weather station thus far. Prototype with temperture, humidity, light, and barometer sensors. Tested it out in the fridge.
Data output...not calibrated YET, but signs of life.
Sourced humidity and barometric sensors.
Self-made tippy bucket - parts: flashing tin, two bits of heat shrink tubing, stiff wire.
Tippy bucket constructed.
Tippy bucket installed.
Low tech, self-made rain gauge!
Low tech humidity sensor: dime, cardboard, nails, glue, board, human hair.
This is another project from a Sector67 member. The device is used to record data collected when testing landfill linings. Our interest in the device is the spreadsheet program written for a microcontroller (can kinda see it on the LCD here). We are planning on installing the software on our weather station.
Until next time.
