|Acu-rite internet bridge question.|
|<< < (2/6) > >>|
Sorry it took me so long to come back. The Legacy wind sensors, has the accuracy been kinked out? I remember that's the wind unit that gave me trouble when I had the 00594W accuracy got worse the higher the wind.
(0-5) No problem
(9-12) -4 Mph
(13-17) -8 Mph
You see, one thing I remember about that wind sensor is the higher the wind was the more inaccurate it was. This explains why the wind storm that produced several tornados never registered higher than 17 Mph the moment before the storm took it out. I mean come on, that storm had to be huffing and puffing 50-60 Mph winds. But like you said, that wind sensor was only one bad apple. Everything else works fine. I'd love to get that PC link for my floating thermometer. It's tough that the display only has a 3 day memory span. I use the pond thermometer to adjust fish feeding and planting. Aside from a weather watcher I love water gardening. That pond thermometer serves the same use as a garden thermometer.
With the oldest 594 sensors, that turned out to be an issue with several batches- turns out it was a multitude of problems affecting the mid-high wind speeds. We are constantly evaluating and improvimg whatever we find out about our products,there is no finish line. The newest (rev 5) wind speed sensor-packaged with the 00595 is much improved over any of the 00594 wind sensors, although obviously not quite as sensitive or robust as our 3n1 or 5n1. The seals are improved, there are now 2 sealed anemometer bearings spaced further apart to prevent shatf wobble (and the bearimgs can be replaced easier), the wind cups and attatchment points have been revised molding for better strength and less flex at higher speeds-preventing wobble even more. The small reed switch that counts the "rpm's" has been upgraded and affixed to the board more solidly, the uv resistance on all the plastics has been improved, the wind direction indicator and sensors have been improved as well- from water resistance to better light blockage, allowing the IR sensors to more accurately detect direction changes. And as they say.."and much, much more" ;)
We are in development on a new 00594/595 type wind only sensor, that will also connect to the aculink internet bridge.
I currently have a water temp sensor at my neighbors hot tub, connected to my aculink internet bridge- works great! I have set an alarm to send him an email/sms alert if it gets down too low in the winter (mech. Problems warning). I can also see the chart to watch the heater efficiencies- it's just cool!
Does the bridge software only work on a PC or is does it run in a browser and thus cross-platform? I have a Mac and would like to have the capability of charting data.
The "local" PC software (installed on hard drive) only runs on a PC. But the Web portal is a website that will work on all browsers (tested on internet explorer, firefox and safari- so your Mac should be fine). The web portal gives you the ability to chart and compare, so you shold be set!
Is there any way to get a manual for this bridge for us to be reviewing?
