Instead of adding a PNG representation of the data, is it possible to import the actual feed data from your weatherstation into emoncms.
This would allow you to store historical data, select timeframes and display data in the same format as your solar power production.
sorry it’s not a CSV but plain text space delimited.
My station is a Davis Vantage Pro2 with the solar attachment. It feeds to it’s own console which then links to software “Cumulus version 1.9.4 build 1099”. I feed data to Weather Underground, and Met Office WOW (weather observations website). I also feed my own website solarschols.com
I’m sure @Paul will direct you to some nodered implementations. I would also like to say there maybe another option on the horizon.
@TrystanLea and I are trying to reunite the emonhub variants and I had previously written a weatherunderground interfacer for the original emonhub that allowed you to just define the weather values you want in the order you want from the location you want and emonhub would fetch the data and pass it to emoncms every 3 mins. Hopefully that interfacer will make an appearance in the not to distant future (not soon enough for you though I guess - The old code is at GitHub - emonhub/emonhub at test-wunderground)
Have been trying to read up on NodeRED. I understand a little bit more, however rather than playing around with it on my live data I’d like to load it up onto my Emoncms on WAMPSERVER running in Windows 10. I don’t have any feeds in this yet. Is there a write up somewhere that explains how to load the NodeRED with the emoncms bits and pieces?
Not really, as node-red is so flexible. The flows are individually developed to suit the data that you are trying to import into emoncms.
If I give you the framework, I’m sure that you will quickly get the idea how it all fits together.
I’ve just written a quick flow which will parse the example ‘realtime.txt’ which you pasted above, but it would help me if you could identify which items of data (and what they are) from the following list, that you want imported (ignore the items that you don’t need importing).
So for example, if you wanted the data contained in the following 3 columns to be imported into emoncms, just add a ‘short’ name alongside, so I can write the next bit of the flow;
It’s pretty easy to do the node-red wunderground to emoncms route. I have the following in node-red which gets me the local outside temperature to emoncms every 5 minutes which I can then display on a dial. The Humidity and Temperature go off the top to MQTT for other bits of the system.
