Re: WXSIM - Meteobridge Pro

Post by hrvistaweather » Fri Aug 16, 2019 11:22 pm

Hi Just checking back, we have finally sold our old house and moved into our new one and my Davis Vantage Pro 2 has been refurbished and on it's way back along with a new Meteobridge Pro Red. So just wondering if any one has yet been able to use Meteobridge Pro with WxSim.

Kind Regards.
Tony

Sorry for being late on this. Having a look at the example files sent to me I think I can easily define an export template for the PRO and NANO SD. As the cumulus format can handle missing data in a better way (data fields are clearly delimited by comma) I would like to build a standard export template for that.

Code: Select all

01/09/14,00:00,14.8,61,7.3,8.0,14.5,354,0.0,0.0,1006.51,366.0,24.6,43,11.3,14.6,14.8,0.0,0,1.83,164.62,12.6,0,0.0,19,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:01,14.9,60,7.2,8.0,16.1,357,0.0,0.0,1006.51,366.0,24.6,43,9.7,14.8,14.9,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.7,0,0.0,330,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:02,14.9,61,7.4,8.0,16.1,359,0.0,0.0,1006.54,366.0,24.5,43,4.8,14.8,14.9,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.7,0,0.0,344,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:03,15.0,60,7.3,9.7,16.1,2,0.0,0.0,1006.54,366.0,24.5,43,4.8,14.6,15.0,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.5,0,0.0,13,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:04,15.0,61,7.5,9.7,19.3,2,0.0,0.0,1006.57,366.0,24.4,43,12.9,14.6,15.0,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.5,0,0.0,334,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:05,15.0,61,7.5,9.7,19.3,3,0.0,0.0,1006.54,366.0,24.4,44,3.2,14.6,15.0,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.5,0,0.0,5,0.0,0.0
01/09/14,00:06,15.0,61,7.5,9.7,19.3,2,0.0,0.0,1006.54,366.0,24.4,44,8.0,14.6,15.0,0.0,0,-0.03,164.59,12.5,0,0.0,15,0.0,0.0


Can someone help me out in understanding the meaning of each of the fields? Date/time is clear, but the rest is not self explanatory.

Is this the meaning of values?

Code: Select all

LogDateTime
Temp
Humidity
Dewpoint
Windspeed
Windgust
Windbearing
RainRate
TodayRainSoFar
Pressure
Raincounter
InsideTemp
InsideHumidity
LatestWindGust
WindChill
HeatIndex
UVindex
SolarRad
Evapotrans
AnnualEvapTran
ApparentTemp
MaxSolarRad
HrsSunShine
CurrWindBearing
RG11rain
RainSinceMidnight
Are all these used by WXSIM or does it just need a subset?

To have daily rain summed up in a hourly or per minute resolution export, I had to invent new export selectors (daysum). Please update to just released Meteobridge version and then try this export template:

Code: Select all

# Cumulus-style export to feed WXSIM
#
[DD]/[MM]/[YY],[hh]:[mm],[th0temp-avg.1:],[th0hum-avg.0:],[th0dew-avg.1:],[wind0avgwind-avg=mph.1:],[wind0wind-max=mph.1:],[wind0dir-avg.0:],[rain0rate-avg.1:],[rain0total-daysum.1:],[thb0seapress-avg.1:],,[thb0temp-avg.1:],[thb0hum-avg.0:],[wind0wind-max=mph.1:],[wind0chill-avg.1:],[th0heatindex-avg.1:],[uv0index-avg.1:],[sol0rad-avg.0:],,,,,,,,,

Hi Boris and Brian,

Thank you both for your help, greatly appreciated.

I am still waiting for my Davis Pro 2 to be returned after being refurbished (hopefully arrives next week) and also with it will be my new Meteobridge Pro Red. Once I receive them I will need to install them poles for anemometer etc and then engage Tom (wxsim) to tweek wxsim for my new location, once that is done I'll be able to test and engage.

Thank you again Boris for the assistance, I will reply again once I have everything running.

Kindest Regards,
Tony
