Note: Work in progress. Will change significantly over the next few weeks. Note that all STLs are in random orientations, not the suggested print orientation. When I have finalized design, I will orient them properly in the final revision.
Central control box for my Arduino weather station.
This box is designed to be weather-tight(ish) and house the requisite electronics and batteries to power the rest of the system. I designed it around a NodeMCU Arduino unit, and a trio of 18650 Lithium batteries.
Update 2019-03-26: I have rethought the power system and have decided it makes more sense, from an efficiency standpoint, to charge a trio of 18650s directly from the 12v output of the solar panel, and then step that stored power down to ~5v through the buck box. To that end:
3S Lithium Charger
18650 3.7v Battery
LM2596 DC DC Step Down
NodeMcu ESP8266 Dev Board
All of the other sensor assemblies will mount to this box's 70x70 mount points. There is a blank included to cover up any of the mount ports that aren't used.
The mounting post is a 1.5" stem, the only non metric measurement used, for mounting with basic hardware to whatever location you wish.
Programming and wiring diagrams to follow.
Update 2019-06-23: I have not abandoned this. I have, however, had some shipping issues of the sensors from China. I currently have the temp and humidity sensors on hand, with some basic code making them work and upload data to ThinkSpeak, which I think will be the method I use to gather and collate data.
I will continue to optimize the code and will sketch out some wiring diagrams as soon as time allows, and will create a github repository for all such data shortly.
