WH32EP install
« on: January 02, 2023, 08:24:00 AM »
A question, not taken anything apart yet but does the WH32EP cable unplug at either end to allow feeding through glands for an enclosure. Or do you need to be creative in that respect? thanks in advance =D>

I did this about a year ago, I had to disconnect the probe in order to feed it through an enclosure which houses the transmitter section.
I installed the probe inside a Davis 24hr fan aspirated shield.

From memory there are 4 wires which need to be disconnected and re attached inside the white sensor enclosure.

If you get stuck I could try and get photos of what Iíve done.

Thanks for the information, I was trying to avoid soldering anything on the board if possible, mainly because I didn't want to breach any kind of coating the board had. Maybe will just have to go with that plan. Some of the boxes have glands which I might be able to DIY in order to get the sensor through but still seal after. Would be nice to do a proper job regardless, have to order a box though since the Wiska branded ones I've got aren't quite big enough, shame as they are IP66 and nicely sealed.

@eliteweathernz - Didn't think to ask at the time but did you use a gland to mount your sensor in the Davis shield, or some other method. My plan is to simulate the mounting type used in the barani shield, using an oversized gland and then the compression when tightening it to secure the WH32EP probe. If that makes sense!

Pictures to follow but I got the WH32EP installed, probe clamped in place by a modified M25 gland, had to increase the internal opening 1-2mm, allowed the probe to pass through without disconnecting any wires. The WH32EP transmitter unit was installed in a Wiska 1010 IP67 housing, this was fitted with a M32 gland, again, allowing probe pass through. I have then added an extra soft rubber grommet, to seal the oversize M32 gland around the cable. Pretty painless once I figured the plan, it was dark when I finished so will partially disassemble for some images in due course. Big fan of the Wiska housings, unique design which isolates internal space from the wall fixings.
