Metpod Weather Station Update

22 Aug 2019 - MB

MetPod weather station update. I’ve updated the MetPod weather station pages to reflect recent developments. This involved a move over to Balena OS and containerisation of the application. Optional use of Balena cloud allows for complete remote control and configuration of the device and makes pushing out updated software builds easy. Use of the Raspberry Pi compute module and Balena Fin carrier board provides an elegant industrial solution.

Another update soon on my new ‘Digital Rain Gauge’ - automatically calculates the current rainfall rate using a tipping bucket rain gauge and processing module, continuously outputs rate information over a serial or XBee wireless interface.
