Meteobridge can handle a broad range of weather stations from consumer entry level up to prosumer/professional stations from Davis Instruments, PeetBros or Rainwise.
supported weather stations
Weather station Description
Vantage.png
Davis Vantage Pro2, Pro1 (except firmware A) (*) Vantage Pro including wind, rain, pressure, UV, solar radiation, indoor temperature, outdoor temperature sensors. In order to connect Vantage with Meteobridge it needs one of the Davis data loggers (serial or USB). If a serial logger is used, it needs to be set to 19.200 baud and a RS232-USB converter based on Prolific pl2303 or FTDI chipset is necessary. Storage capacity of Davis logger is not used at all.
Vue.png
Davis Vantage Vue (*) Vantage Vue including wind, rain, pressure, indoor temperature, outdoor temperature sensors, but without UV or solar sensors. In order to connect Vue with Meteobridge it needs one of the Davis data loggers (serial or USB). If a serial logger is used, it needs to be set to 19.200 baud and a RS232-USB converter based on Prolific pl2303 or FTDI chipset is necessary. Storage capacity of Davis logger is not used at all.
Wmr928.png
Oregon WMR968 (US), WMR928 (EU) This model has a RS232 connector that needs a RS232-USB converter (based on FTDI or Prolific pl2303 chipset). Station does not provide UV or solar sensors.
Wmr200.png
Oregon WMR200 * This model has a USB connector that can be connected to the Meteobridge client (with a USB 2.0 hub inbetween). Internal Datalogger of WMR200 will not be used by Meteobridge. WMR200 has problems in reporting actual sensor readings, when data logger is completely filled. It is recommended to set the data logging interval to the maximum (longest duration). This takes care that the data logger will not reach its capacity for months. However, you should take care to empty the data logger's buffer from time to time manually at the WMR200 base station. Beside the standard sensors it can also support UV sensors.
Wmr100.png
Oregon WMR100, WMR88 * This model has a USB connector that can be connected to the Meteobridge client (with a USB 2.0 hub inbetween). An optional UV sensor is supported as well.
Wmrs200.png
Oregon WMRS200 * This station is like a WMR100 with sensors from WMR200 but without any display. WMRS200 is connected to Meteobidge USB port (as WMR200) and is also powered by the USB connector.
Te923.png
Meade TE923, TE827, TE821, DV928 * These weather stations are connected via USB and are sold with various brand names (Mebus, Irox, Honeywell, Nexus). Meteobridge supports recent hardware versions which provide live weather data on the USB port. Internal data logger functionality of TE923 is not used by Meteobridge. Station is connected via USB (with a USB 2.0 hub inbetween).
Wh1080.png
Ambient Weather WS1090, WS2080 * These weather stations manufactured by Fine Offset Electronics (WH-1080, WH-2080, WH-3080) are also branded as Watson W-8681, WX-2008, National Geographic 265 NE, Elecsa 6975/ 6976, etc. Meteobridge makes use of live data, internal data logger functionality is not used. Stations can be connected via USB. UV sensors is used if present.
Ultimeter.png
Peet Bros Ultimeter 100, 800, 2100 Ultimeter weather stations from Peet Bros are supported. Wind, rain, pressure, indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity are used. Station needs to be set to "data logging", "packet" or "complete record (preffered) mode with 2400 baud transfer rate. Station needs a RS232-USB converter based on Prolific pl2303 or FTDI chipset".
Mk3.png
RainWise MkIII MkIII weather station from RainWise is supported including wind, rain, pressure, outdoor temperature and humidity. Meteobridge needs Rainwise Computer Interface MKIIICC and a RS232-USB converter (based on pl2303 or FTDI).
Ws2300.png
La Crosse WS2300 WS2300 weather station is supported. Warning: WS2300 can deliver sporadic false weather data readings caused by interface problems. WS2300 needs a RS232-USB converter witch pl2303 or FTDI chipset.
Ws300.png
La Crosse / ELV WS300PC/444/500 and various clones (WS550/777/888) WS300 weather station and clones are supported and connected via USB.

Remark: Stations marked with a "*" still use the old USB 1.x protocol and need a small cheap USB 2.0 hub to be connected to meteobridge. Davis Vantage and Vue do also need the hub when used with Davis weatherlink USB data logger.

Not supported stations are La Crosse 3600, 2800 and the ones from Accurite.
