Davis vantage pro2 serial
« on: November 18, 2017, 12:51:32 PM »
Can I use a serial to usb adapter to connect to my Vantage Pro to a Raspberry Pi running WeeWX?  Is there one better than another.  Or should I replace the logger with a usb model?

Thanks for the help,

Yes.  Get a converter with a Prolific brand chipset.

Just wanted to report that the station has been moved to the Raspberry Pi3 and all is working smoothly.  Thanks Bushman for the help.
