I switched to the new code for that sensor a few days ago but ended up with unreasonable temp readings (125 degrees when the temp was 85 degrees) so I had to switch back to the older code. I'm assuming that the temp readings are on Celsius and need to be converted to F like with the old code - is that correct?
Hello all (and hello BP); so in between moving and working and car problems I got back to the weather board kit; ordered the I2C Mux and set it up last nite; it didn't change anything for me - the setup fails to read the external humidity and external tempeature when the AM2315 probe is connected to the I2C Mux board; the I2C Mux board is connected to one of 2 sockets on the weather board itself and the 6 port I2C expander is left out (not connected) and the display is connected to the other weather board I2C connector. When the display is connected to the I2C Mux it never displays (dark screen). When I put the display and the AM2315 onto the weather board's 2 I2C sockets everything is fine but I can't plug in the solar controller - no more connectors and we were planning to put a breakout board on for APRS use next (ham radio telemetry). SO far I am unable to use the 6 I2C port expansion card or the I2C Mux card; attaching the diplay and the humidity/temperature probe to either causes the weather board to lose its onboard temperature and air pressure reaing (32F and 0pis); putting one device back on main board and using one socket of the expander or mux board loses the humidity and external temp reading (nan% and 32F display). I'm don't know how to proceed further; this bus has problems with device crash. Allen.
And now I see that the AM2315 humidity sensor is going to nan% display after 2-3 hours operation; resetting the board "fixes" it for another 2-3 hours and it goes back to nan% display. It is connected to either I2C on the WeatherBoard itself. The equipment was ordered and received in March 2019. Allen.

Hello BP and all; I am getting good response from the WeatherPlus setup with version 036 OurWeather and the new type humidity temperature sensor. I posted my latest query to the SunAirPlus group since my newest problems are with the solar charger but I wanted to thank you for the effort done on Ken's behalf to get the weather station going. Thanks. My problem with the solar controller is that I see no status on the oled display nor do I see any status (not even the existence of ) in the html page or the scrolling display. Yet the solarairplus seems to be working. I have the Vcc red post line not connected as per assembly instruction. I note that in early version user(s) were instructed to attach the VDD line to the I2C so is this still useful in version 36? Otherwise I have a blue led lit per usb control (its attached to power the WeahterPlus board and its sensors); I have a orange (or kinda red) and green led that are lit (next to the I2C pin connectors per SCL,SDA, and GND (VDD is not patched to I2C bus), the red led next to the solar connector lights on under light on the pv panels, is off when the panels are dark and the jumper from the usb power control is connected to the post next to the lipo battery connector; its led is on and is blue on the usb power control board; I am currently running the equipment down to battery failure to see the proper shutdown but it hasn't run out yet. How do I get battery and solar panel charging status and to show up? Thanks, Allen.
