NovaLynx Model 380-600 Thermometer Shelter Pics
« on: May 30, 2016, 04:51:30 PM »
Some photos of my new NovaLynx thermometer shelter.

Inside are the probe for my YARCH Davis Clone heater temperature controller (top probe), Davis 6477 probe connected to one of those "spare" ISS boxes inside the garage, an old-school min-max thermometer and the netatmo outdoor module (top/left). This replaced another thermometer shelter that peeled, delaminated and basically fell apart. Fortunately, I got my money back on it.

The Davis probe temperature is not bad when there is some wind hitting this side of the garage, but when the shelter is in the lee the error can climb to several degrees. My original motivation for this was to have a better place for the rain gauge heater's controller probe and more goodies got added. I'll add a link to a plot showing this Davis probe (Gar-Shelter) versus the DFARS ISS and Temp/Hum station. I added a light for night viewing. The paint was still slightly tacky when it arrived and the door tended to stick. The reflective tape was my fix.

Old school, I remember those. Mount on north side of building. 
I noticed they had the full size cotton region shelters also. I had one of those years ago with the Townsend mount and thermometers.

Any chance of seeing the display unit inside your house? I just recently got the humidity and temperature units and here's a photo of them.

I can view the temperature on the netatmo app and the Davis temp station with the various consoles.
