Strange metric precip readings (0.3mm)! **solved**

Post by Neco »

I have a Meteobridge pro directly receiving data from the Vantage pro ISS. So, today there has been rain and I got "uneven" precip amounts such as 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 1.1mm per minute even though resolution is only 0.2mm! And now I get a daily sum of 6.9 mm.

My settings are correct (never changed anything), therefore must be a bug somewhere?! Just doesn't make any sense..

Console: 5.6 mm resulting from 28 tips (28 x 0.2mm)

MB Pro: 7.1 mm

Seems like MB PRO thinks it is measured in 0.01 inch tips (=0.254 mm) :

28 x 0.254 mm (=0.01 inch) = 7.1 mm :!:

However, the tipping spoon is a metric version which tips at exactly 0.2 mm and NOT at 0.254 mm!

The setup screens are constantly changing.

As there is no console to read from, you have to tell the MB-pro-RED what the device is measuring.
Set it to the same settings as you did with your console.

This is how it looks like for me (see screenshot). There you can see, 0.2 mm is already set (which is what the station is measuring). There are no further settings as the MB PRO receives directly from the ISS.

Thanks!
I did a reboot around 8 hours ago, now the readings are in 0.1mm tips instead of 0.2 mm... have you changed it again to the correct 0.2 mm since my last reboot?
