Hi! I just received my weatherboard and I'll connect directly to my raspberry using just cables. The i2c interface and vdd/gnd are fine......what I don't understand is where to connect cables from GPIO pins 37 and 40 to weatherboard (manual page 32). They say: "Yellow Wire Grove to Male Pin Header Cable #2 - Anemometer"....but i'm lost could not locate where is it in weatherboard.
Also, is ok to use ADS1115 directly into weatherboard instead of ADS1015?
I just figured out....I'm using "Weather Output" header on top of board, but this is not clear on manual....at least not for me It's working fine....I just lost my ADS1115 and I need to order a new one such small thing :/
Thank you! I'll add this to our manual update list to make it better in the future.
Ack on the losing the ADS1115. They are small boards. We are getting ready to move the SwitchDoc Labs offices and I can't find anything! It is going to be a terrible couple of weeks.
Many thanks, I've been reading the manual (version 3.0) and it's not clear on connecting the board to the raspberry Pi, on Page 30 Under the section "Connecting a Raspberry Pi B+ / Pi2 / Pi3 to the Weather Board Using Pin
Headers (3.3V)" It states "You can build this version without a Pi2Grover Interface board using pin headers and jumpers" (which is what I want to do) however on the very next page under the same section it says "Plug the Pi2Grover Grove to Pi Interface onto the Raspberry Pi before beginning." Then it refers to "Header Cable #1" and if you are not using a P2Grover board where is this cable (for the I2c Interface its easy to figure out... but for the GPIO pins as jmaurn said where is header cable #2 ? i assume its on the Pi2Grover board, but what if you dont use that board? Am i correct in my assumptions that "Raspberry Pi GPIO Pin 37 - GPIO 26" connects to JP2 Pin 3 ? and "Raspberry Pi GPIO Pin 40 - GPIO 21" connects to JP2 Pin 2 " If that's the case the "Header Cable #3 - Wind Vane" in the table should say "Header Cable #3 - RainBucket" as this is the interrupt for the rain bucket? Sorry I'm very confused
Im looking further it says "Raspberry Pi GPIO Pin 40 - GPIO 21" Goes to "Yellow Wire Grove to Male Pin Header Cable #3 - Wind Vane" Then the next line is: "Grove to Male Pin Header Cable #3" Goes to "Weather Board / Grove Digital Rain Bucket" so is it wind vane or rain bucket ? So following this i dont get unless its a mistake in the document as the Wind Vane is an analog setting and the GPIO is digital and the Pi doesnt have a ADC so it must be the Rain Bucket IE Raspberry Pi Pin 40 GPIO 21 to JP2 Pin2 (Rain Bucket)
