R.M. Young 81000 Serial Output to CR6 Datalogger

Frankymt Feb 6, 2017 03:19 PM


Anybody can help me with the following?

I have a R.M. Young 81000 3D wind sensor and I want to connect it to a Campbell CR6 datalogger.

I want to configure the R.M. Young 81000 for the following setting:

- Serial Output: Half-duplex RS-485 at 38400 Bauds.

- Output Rate: 32 Hz.

- ASCII Text Serial String:

      - Wind Speed - 3D (m/s).

      - Direction (Deg).

      - Elevation (Deg).

      - Chksum.


In fact is that I have not idea on how programming the Campbell. In regards to the wiring I have an idea on how connect the sensor to the CR6 datalogger. I just need to connect the A1 and B1 terminals from the Young sensor to a pair of terminals C on the CR6 datalogger (This control terminals can capture RS-485).

What I need is the following:

- Capture and store the sensor readings (half-duplex RS-485 at 38400 bauds, 32 Hz output rate) with a timestamp (UTC) in the internal memory of the datalogger.

- Every hour, create a log-file with all measurements stored in the internal memory and copy it to a microSD memory card (this datalogger has this external memory card).

- Send the log-file from the microSD to a FTP server.

- All instantaneous measurements can be read by Telnet TCP/IP (This datalogger has an Ethernet port).


It does not matter if the program does not have everything I need, but with a basic program or some ideas will help me with what I need.

Well, I would really appreciate your help.

Many Thanks,
