Not sure what you are trying to say. First you quote an API post. Then some mention of taking time to move and verifying email process not going right for you. Then you post a bad link. What is your point?

Hey guys,

My device got another issue. It looks aspirating fan in my new atlas device is not running. I could not hear any motor/fan running sound in the device even in 33 degree C.
Also device temperature spike higher than my old 5 in 1 weather station. Is there any way to check if it is actually running apart from hearing fan running sound?
Not getting response sooner from acurite support team, hence posting the query here. Thanks.

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: How to test Super Cap?
« Last post by SnowHiker on Today at 02:42:10 AM »
Has anyone else tested their ISS this way without the battery installed to see how long it would last into the night?   If so, kindly let me know your result.   Thank you.
On an original VP (not VP2) I've run a soil temp/moisture station without a battery installed (soil moisture and temp didn't change enough for me to be concerned if it quit for an hour or so at night).  The supercap did in fact power the station most of the night, even in winter, when it was new.

So I would expect a regular ISS on a VP2 to do similar.  In any case, I'm sure it should last for much longer than 30 minutes or so after sundown after a full day in the sun.  Unless they've made some other "improvements" on the VP2.  :-)

So if it's working well off of the solar panel during the day, but not at night, my first guess would be that you have a bad supercap, but since you've just installed a new one, I don't know.

This is the standard wireless 6152 with envoy.    I bought it used.  The battery needed replacement.   The transmitter housing seemed weathered and brittle and so I replaced it in its entirety (incl. solar panel).  While I was at it, I decided to buy and install a new super cap as well.   (Yes, I got its polarity right and I did not bend its legs at all - and I know how to solder)

Before I mount it on a pole, I'd very much like to know all is good and that I won't be having to pull it down anytime soon again for an earlier than expected battery replacement.

So if that is not the way to test it, which is?   And if you say that I've just proven that something else is wrong, then what does that say about your first statement?   

My understanding is that the super cap's job is to power it for up to about 12 hrs without sunlight; after depletion of its charge, the battery should take over.    What have I done wrong in my test and how else can I test the solar panel / super cap combination's effectiveness ?

So I just replaced both the solar panel and super cap inside my wireless ISS' transmitter.   I then ran it for a day in full sunshine without the battery installed.  By 7pm - about 30 mins after the sun had set  - the ISS went dead again...

Question:  Is running a test like this without the battery installed a legitimate way of testing the super cap's integrity to power the ISS on its own through most of the night?   Or does it always need the battery installed?   And in that case, is the only way to tell that one still has a charging / super cap problem the discovery some 8 months down the line that the battery needs replacement again?

Why did you do that?  What were the symptoms before the replacement?  Is this just a standard ISS (no extra stuff, etc.)?

That is not a way to "test the super cap's integrity", regardless of whether the battery is or is not installed.

Assuming that you installed the correct new supercap correctly, you have just proved that there is something else wrong with that ISS.

Why is Meteobridge reporting the "high temperature" of the day as its own internal box temp?  103 degrees? How can I prevent this?
It's correctly reporting the outside temperature, minute by minute? [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
It is now 10:00 PM at https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KTXHIGHL10#history
The uploaded data to WU for Oct 22 contains one spike for that day:
 at 9:34 PM   103.8 F   53.6 F   20 %   East   0 mph   0 mph   30.23 in   0 in   0 in
That is the value we started with in the first post.
The high-lows on the same page now show 104.9 F

Since October 12 there are these strange values visible in the uploaded data. Seems there were other temp problems that day and following days.
Since then, during 24 hours nearly all values which are uploaded look like normal "outside temp" values.
Each day at different moments one or two spikes are reported for current outside temp and another high value for highest temp of the day.

What happend at October 12? Is there maybe an USB-disk problem with the MB-Pro?

I'm happy with my Atlas so far but then I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, we don't have weather. We haven't had rain since April 19th.

I have had false lightning strikes, 511 total, a little less than half on 10/6 and a little more than half on 10/18. So I'm thinking it's some kind of interference.

I do think my wind measurements are more accurate. I do have the wind extension, so my anemometer is all by itself on top of a  a 20' pole; it's now matching better with the surrounding station's measurements.
