Peak Wind Speed from Past 60 minutes

  • Updated 3 years ago
I have a new (12/7/15) Professional Weather Center, model 01528/01533. It has a 5-in-1 wireless sensor. The display shows the peak wind speed from the past 60 minutes. Is there way to make it show the peak wind speed over a longer period (> 8 hours) ? It would be nice to know what happened while I was at work. Thanks!

You should be able to use the chart feature which is located on the wind speed widget to look at previous wind speed. That would give you what you are looking for while you were away.

Gil,

The Peak Wind Speed calculation timeframe cannot be modified; it is static at 60 minutes.  The method Jimmy mentions above is in the even you are using an Aculink Internet Bridge, where you can look at the historic charting; however, a peak wind speed might not be charted in the graphing if the value was not captured at the 12-minute interval that saves the data. 

Have a great day!

Hi Kevin, What product (display, bridge, etc.) should I add to my model 01528/01533 to get PC connectivity and charting? Thanks, Gil

Hi Gil,

With that system, you will want to use the Aculink Internet Bridge (http://www.acurite.com/aculink-internet-bridge-for-acurite-weather-sensors-09150trx.html ).  You can then view the data remotely as well as chart and save the data.

Hi Kevin, As an alternative, could I use Model 06037M Color Display With PC Connect For 5-In-1 Weather Sensors, or equivalent? Which is best?
Happy Holidays!

Gil, Yes, you could definitely use a PC Connect system as well.  It will require connection to a Windows-based PC running Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10.  As for which is best, there is no *right* answer.  For streaming with a PC Connect system, that requires being connected to the computer with it running at all times.
