3D model description

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.

Sensor Box for my Arduino weather station.

https://www.thingiverse.com/SeanTheITGuy/collections/arduino-weather-station

This box is designed to attach to the central control box of my Arduino Weather Station, and has standoffs to affix the following sensors:

UV Sensor.

Temperature and Humidity Sensor

Barometric Pressure Sensor

The UV sensor is troublesome, as there are few inexpensive, but weatherproofed, UV sensors on the market, and putting it behind glass or plastic protection will reduce its accuracy. To that end, I have designed the box to allow the sensor end of the board to hang out to open air, but the slot around where the sensor extends should probably be sealed with something after sensor installation. There are louvres on either side of the box to enable accurate air and pressure conditions to be sampled, but they are angled such that most rain should not get in. If moisture does enter the box, there is a drain hole in the bottom that should alleviate any accumulation.

Programming and wiring diagrams to come.
