I am using a visual basic program to monitor the operation of the anemometer.
The arduino is programmed with the monitor sketch.
It sends all the necessary data to the visual basic program.
The following is sent from the anemometer about every 3 seconds:
T= 25.04 z= -19000 N= 4633 S= 4754 e= 89 w= -2.59....z= 25467 E= 3929 W= 3848 e= -95 w= 3.47.....Aw= 4 Dw= 126
T.... is the current temperature.
z.... is north-south phase shift -- this is not displayed
N....is the north time of flight
S....is the south time of flight
e....is the north-south transducer error
w....is the north-south wind -- this is not displayed
z....is east-west phase shift -- this is not displayed
E.... is the east time of flight
W....is the west time of flight
e....is the east-west transducer error
Aw....is the actual wind -- this is not displayed
Dw....is the wind direction -- this is not displayed
I have found this very useful to road test the anemometer operation.
If you have visual basic you can download monitor.zip from:http://sourceforge.net/projects/arduinoweather/files/
