Gill WindObserver Ultrasonic Anemometer
« on: October 01, 2021, 11:17:13 AM »
It has been awhile since I have had to go into the setup, but I am missing configurating my Gill Ultrasonic on reading on com9 (9600,N,8,1) for wind in the polar format.

Brian/Anyone, please point me to the correct tab, setup.  ](*,)

Thanks in advance and kind regards

From the manual: “7.2. Output formats The UV and Polar wind speed parameters are output in either ASCII or binary.  These parameters can be transmitted continuously or polled from the user.  Polar is also available in continuous NMEA format.”

so you have it set to polar format, which is NMEA?
(the more detailed information you can provide the better, as no one, even on this forum, is a mind reader :) )

I am looking a indicator that WD is talking to my Gill.
1. Com/IP Port - Comport Number ( Com 9 selected). No other settings seen for comm port setup seen. Any oversight on my part?
2. Found under Inspeed Vortex setup, bottom section “Gill Winsonic Anenmeter”
3. I selected “I want to use a Gil Winsonic Aneometer”
setup I can select the comm port I have setup, communication w/ device.
4. Are there indications WD is getting the wind direction, Speed from the Gill WindObserver? Is the format for Winsonic Aneometer the same as a Gill WindObserver?
