Is that radiation shield waterproof? I have a Temperature sensor setup in a barn which i have to replace frequently due to the high humidity and I'm wondering if that would fix it

Dinux, very interesting! Looking forward to see how the rain and wind sensors are integrated.

 

Dstahl94, Yes they are. All of Davis' weather equipment is designed for harsh weather environments.

Very cool setup. I have the Davis Vantage Vue for about 2 years in my backyard now, working great and loving it. Man Happy

This looks cool.  I'm trying to set up something similar but I am unsure about the ports.  I see how you are getting the separate ports set up on the mPort, but how are those connecting to the THS?  Are you simply using a Cat6 splitter, or do I need to separate out the wires within the Cat6 cable?

Connector in THS is a normal T-568B (standard RJ-45 plug). You just saparate the cable at the mFi end and use a second port for humidity. Otherwise you just have temperature.
