My smartHUB replacement
« on: December 29, 2016, 02:19:36 PM »
I finally got around to building my smartHUB replacement:



BOM:

$ 0.00   weewx
$42.99  Raspberry Pi 3 starter kit with power supply
$ 9.99   32GB MicroSD card
$10.88  i2c-bus BMP280 barometer module (5 per lot, have 4 spares)
$ 5.49   180 degree USB adapter
$12.90  metal Pi2/3 case
$26.95  metal-cased SDR module

Total cost: $109.20

(If I wanted to go cheaper, I could have went with a plastic Pi case and a plastic SDR, and left the 180° adapter out.)

Acu-Rite's cost of a replacement smartHUB to replace my bricked unit - $79.99.

Still have some software tweaking to do, but everything is feeding into weewx and the barometer is working.....
WU Gold Stars for everyone! :lol:
