Question : I also lost (still need some testing) something in an air quality sensor box.
Before I deploy any others (I have a radiation, air quality and lightning that I've been working to get out) I wanted to ask, do you provide any conformal coatings for the sensors?
I've used clear nail polish on others PCBs and it has kept them from corrosion. This is a picture of the pro mini I was using in the air sensor after about a week... had a bunch of rain and the cases aren't completely water tight. The board cleaned up ok (see below)
I'm going to test today with a new AQI sensor to see whether the sensor or the pro mini is bad...but don't want to put anything else outside without SOMETHING to help prevent this type of issue.
+1 on adding this to the directions. I'll do this for my 2nd skycam and the lightning board if I can get it running again.
Unfortunately wrt the Temp and rain sensors they are built into the WeatherRack. I haven't wanted to pull it apart since the wind sensors are still functional. I will definitely add this to my work-arround though.
I'll be posting an update once I get the details cleaned up.
