Technical Innovations AAG Cloud Sensor
A very sensitive rain detection pad identifies the very first drops with immediate data reporting. This allows observatory auto shut features to engage without parameter analysis or interlock levels. The unit has adjustable heating elements to clear the pad and prevent false signals
Sky lightness is measured with a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR). The unit has the ability to report not only approaching darkness but pre-dawn light conditions
The software is ASCOM compliant and ddls provide direct interface to Technical Innovations DDW, ACP and CCDAutoPilot. Software displays four user graphs of ongoing data collection: "Cloud Condition"; "Rain Condition"; "Daylight Condition"; and "Ambient Temperature"
Technical Innovations AAG Cloud Sensor / CloudWatcher Features User Defined Parameters...
- Clouds – From “Clear” (less than -8 degrees C); to “Cloudy” (0 to 5 degrees C); to “Overcast” (0-30 degrees C)
- Rain – From “Dry” (values greater than 2,000 cycles); to “Wet” (2,000 to 1,700 cycles); to “Rain” (1,700 to 400 cycles)
- Light – From “Dark” (greater than 2100k ohms); to “Light” (between 2,000k and 6k ohms); to “Very Light” (between 6k and 0 ohms)
The CloudWatcher software allows different PCs on the same local area network to share the information of the same CloudWatcher Device. The program runs in "Master" mode (physically connected PC) and "Remote" mode on any other PC in the network. The software is open source and add-on features are invited. There will never be a charge for software enhancements, upgrades and add-ons.
