The Sensors Module
Allows sensor adjustments to match other weather units.
The Main Software Interface
A small compact display for quick overview of the data
Straightforward adjustments, settings and unsafe alert threasholds
Cloud Sensor- from Interactive Astronomy
Provides weather data to enable observatory automation.
The system monitors:
Humidity % Level
Wind Speed mph or kph
All Temperatures in.... C or F
Calculated Dew Point Temperature
Precipitation Sensor for- Dry/ Damp/ Rain
Brightness Levels- Daylight/ Dimlight/ Darkness
IR Sky Temperature to deternine Clear or Cloudy Skies
Graph dislplay can plot in either 12 hour time or 24 hour time
Barometric Pressure included with Temperature and Humidity Sensor
NEW ADD-ON FEATURE......Monitors 110vac line power...........see this LINK
Basic data provided to imaging and/ or roof control software for automation:
> Close Roof for Hardware Failure, Loss of Power or Data
> Close Roof for Hi Wind, Humidity or Lo Temp
> Close Roof for Cloudly Skies or Rain
> Open / Close for dusk or dawn
A High Quality Graph Is Included !
Live weather data from "Meadow View Observatory" updating every 20 seconds.
Generates "Boltwood I & II Text Files" to provide weather data to most remote roof controllers, such as- SkyRoof
Text files compatible with these imaging apps.-. CCDAP... ACP... SGP. . CCD Commander... MaxPilote... PRiSM
Weather text data may shutdown your observatory for clouds, rain, high wind, high humidity or low temps.
Creates & saves a .jpg or .png file for the internal ftp uploader, to allow website viewing of graph.
