I recently bought a new rainsensor to replace my Oregon that died en is not available anymore…
The new one is a TFA 30.3233 Also called TFA Drop. It is on the list of integrated devices of RFXcom (Pro2 protocol, newest firmware). But my RFXcom on this firmware did not recognize this sensor. I could receive the raw data.
I reported this to RFXcom and Bert (the owner) made some adaptions and sent me a beta firmware version. And now I can receive the data of this sensor (with Hideki protocol enabled). Via the RFXcom manager software I can see two figures: flip count and total rain. Where total rain is flipcount x 0,254 mm (this is the resolution of this sensor).
The subtype of this sensor is RAIN9 ( the Oregon was subtype RAIN3)
I can also receive data from this sensor via the RFXcom plugin on my VeraPlus. But the numbers are not correct. CurrentTRain shows a number that is equal to flipcountx0,1 mm.
So the plugin calculates with the wrong resolution. I can understand it because I also have read somewhere the resolution is 0.1 mm. But it really is 0,254 mm.
@tinman: can you please check this and adapt it in the plugin.
I can make a workaround via Reactor and calculate the right amounts of rain but I think it’s better to directly correct this in the plugin.
Awaiting your reaction,
