The Outdoor Weather Bricklet is equipped with a 433MHz receiver capable of receiving data from outdoor weather stations. It can be connected to a Brick.
It currently supports Outdoor Weather Station WS-6147 which measures
and Temperature/Humidity Sensor TH-6148 which measures
The Outdoor Weather Station WS-6147 is meant to be put outside (somewhere where it can measure the rain/wind). The TH-6148 sensor can be used inside or outside. You can use up to 255 Outdoor Weather Stations and up to 255 Sensors simultaneously.
|Max. number of WS-6147||255|
|Max. number of TH-6148||255|
|Dimensions (W x D x H)||40 x 35 x 5mm (1.58 x 1.38 x 0.2")|

To test a Outdoor Weather Bricklet you need to have Brick Daemon and Brick Viewer installed. Brick Daemon acts as a proxy between the USB interface of the Bricks and the API bindings. Brick Viewer connects to Brick Daemon. It helps to figure out basic information about the connected Bricks and Bricklets and allows to test them.
Connect the Outdoor Weather Bricklet to a Brick with a Bricklet Cable.
If you connect the Brick to the PC over USB, you should see a new tab named "Outdoor Weather Bricklet" in the Brick Viewer after a moment. Select this tab. If everything went as expected you can now see the latest received data of your weather stations and sensors. It takes about ~45 seconds until the first data shows up when you start the weather station or Bricklet for the first time.
After this test you can go on with writing your own application. See the Programming Interface section for the API of the Outdoor Weather Bricklet and examples in different programming languages.
A laser-cut case for the Outdoor Weather Bricklet is available.
The assembly is easiest if you follow the following steps:
Below you can see an exploded assembly drawing of the Outdoor Weather Bricklet case:
Hint: There is a protective film on both sides of the plates, you have to remove it before assembly.
