This all-in-one weather sensor from Alecto uses only one connector on your Reporter, but it measures six parameters: temperature, humidity, rain, wind average, wind peak and wind direction.
Rain is measured using a physical tipping bucket sensor and a measurement area of 96mm diameter. One tilt represents 400ml of rain per square meter.
Wind measurement consists of three parameters included: average wind speed, peak wind speed and wind direction. Wind speeds are a linear calculation of average and peak speeds during the user-configured measurement interval on the Crodeon Dashboard. Options are 30sec, 1min, 2min, 5min, 10min, 15min, 20min, 30min, 1hour and 2 hours. Wind direction is measured in 16 steps: N, NNE, NE, ENE, E, ESE, SE, SSE, S, SSW, SW, WSW, W, WNW, NW, NNW.
Temperature and humidity are measured by the on-board Sensirion SHT30 sensor chip. Datasheet of the SHT30: Download.
Make sure the sensor is mounted on a stable surface or pole. It should not be able to move or wobble as this would influence the measurements. For accurate data it is recommended to install the sensor at a height of more than 2m above the ground. Ideally located at a horizontal distance of 4 times the height of the nearest obstruction. The "N" indicated arrow should point to the north.
