I just recently got the new Access, and noticed some things. Maybe George or someone on here can help. Does the Access have a sensor inside for barometric pressure. Cause i noticed that the weather display of barometric pressure doesnt match what it says on myaccurite. Also the wind stats dont match. Whats the difference between adjusted pressure and normal. Help

Like the SmartHUB, the Access has its own barometer, so it may not match what is on your display.

The Access only sends data to myAcurite every 5 minutes.  I'm not sure exactly what the wind data is supposed to be, but looking at the traffic seems to make me believe it is an average wind speed given the parameter names.

"Adjusted pressure" is the same as "altimeter".  The pressure reading has been reduced to sea-level pressure using your elevation and the altimeter equation.  This is the pressure most often given in weather reports.  Since all reports are based on sea-level, it makes it easier to compare readings between weather stations without worrying about pressure differences due to their actual elevation.

"Station pressure" is the true pressure... it's the actual force of the atmosphere pressing down on your baro sensor.  As you go higher in elevation, the station pressures get lower.  This is the pressure you need to use if you're doing things like chemistry and physics.

Hello Caredlands,

George is correct. The Access does have a pressure sensor in it. Your display also has a pressure sensor in it. The display has the self calibrating learning mode that is goes through. The different algorithms that are used is why your pressures may not match each other.  Adjusted pressure means that it takes your elevation and geo information into consideration. The station pressure is a raw pressure.  The readings are sent every 5 minutes and will update in 5 minute intervals, and your display will update the readings every 18 seconds on the display so the wind readings may not match.

Every 10 seconds, yes.

Everything Atlas-related is 10 seconds except for the data being sent to myAcurite and the myAcurite apps, which are set at 5 minutes.

For example, the Atlas display logs weather data at 10-second intervals to a removable SD card that you supply.
