I just installed my wifilogger2 and the console is not reading data from the ISS, and the buttons are not reponsive, what is wrong?
- The console can freeze and not display weather data from the sensor suite and the buttons not work while the data logger communicates with the console. This is resolved by waiting for at least 3 minutes until the console has synchronized with the wifilogger2. If the console is still frozen after 3 minutes of waiting there may be corrupt data that makes the transfer hang and the data must be cleared. To clear the data log into the wifilogger interface then go to the “Setup” drop down and choose “Weather Station Setup” and scroll to the bottom and search for the “Send command to console” and choose “CLRLOG” and push the “Execute” button. This should clear any erronious data and the console should unfreeze after rebooting it (remove power supply and batteries and reconnect power supply and batteries).
Wi-Fi logger2 has been working great up until recently, now it will not display some of the information on the weather link app as it do for instance any timeline or records.
- This requires clearing archive data in datalogger. This can be done via WeatherLink PC software, or via WiFiLogger web interface.
through the web interface: SETUP -> Weather Station Setup. Go to the bottom there will be COMMAND form. Choose CLRLOG command and execute. This will clear datalogger memory, which sometimes can be corrupted by console and will block sending archive data to Weatherlink com.
