Arduino anemometer (wind meter)
« on: September 23, 2010, 10:37:05 pm »
Here is a nice DIY anemometer based on 1-wire wind sensor.

Is it possible to just GC-100 (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/GlobalCache_GC-100)?

Could this work? Could GC-100 be used to count impulses that wind sensors sends?

you would need to add code to the Climate PlugIn to intercept the sensor tripped messages for the device, and transformed appropriately.

Ok, but let's put software aside for the moment, I first need to know if this would even work. I have no experience with 1-wire devices or GC-100 so are these devices even compatible? Would GC-100 register pulses that wind meter would send correctly?

hmm.

Dude, sometimes you drive me nuts.

If you have a way to send events back to the system, the system can interpret them. Whether you choose to process the data AT the sensor and send back some sort of abstracted value (the wind speed), or if you choose to send back simple pulses, and let the LinuxMCE system read them and calculate something meaningful is entirely up to you.

You missed the point -  I didn't question LinuxMCE and it's abbilities.

What I'm asking are GC-100 and this particular 1-Wire anemometer compatible. Is 1-wind anemometer sending impulses that GC-100 can interpret?

You need to use a 1-wire interface to connect to a 1-wire device.

Since we no longer have a 1-wire interface that works, you'll need to write a DCE interface to one.
