Schematics

Wind vane direction encoder

This schematic is used to build the encoder for the wind vane. You can use the outputs from the encoder directly or use the additional 8 to 3 encoder to save pins on the arduino.

Sensor Box Schematic

This is the schematic showing how to connect all the sensors together. It is using I2C bus so i has SDA/SCL and +V/GND running to all of the I2C sensors. The analogue ones are shown connected directly to the pins.

Code

ZeWS Weather Station

All details are published in the Github repo
