The original weather station used to provide the data on this site
Oregon Scientific WMR928NX Wireless Weather Station although
Oregon Scientific has since has released an upgraded version,
WMR200. Information on the WMR968 is still available from
the Oregon Scientific website
The weather station consists of a console which uses wireless
communications to collect data from the anemometer, rain gauge,
temperature and humidity sensors. The
standard system includes an internal temperature, humidity
and barometric pressure sensor which may be supplemented by up to three additional
sensors. In this case, the standard internal sensor is located in
the lounge, with additional sensors located in the conservatory,
master bedroom and my home office.
The console also includes an RS-232 interface which may be
connected to a PC running third party applications such as
Virtual Weather Station from Ambient Weather. This product
comes in three versions, Base, Professional and Internet with
the Professional and Internet editions adding features such as
data export and web site update functionality. The "Live"
weather data on the pages on this site are updated every 20
minutes or so.
The weather station has been upgraded to a
Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 Plus
but the Oregon station is still operational and provides a fall
back to the Davis station.
The Owner's Manual supplied with the Weather Station was not
particularly good. In the US, Radio Shack distributed a rebadged
version on the WMR968 which had a far better manual. The Owner's
Manual below was downloaded from the Radio Shack website
here. The original Owner's Manual from Oregon Scientific's
website is also available.
