NOTES

  • if ‘AUX_10bit’, ‘ON_BOARD’ or ‘ALPHA_ARRAY’ are disabled in the firmware, ‘-999′ will be written in their place
  • All 10 bit values are integers between 0-1023 with a 5V reference. The measured analog voltage can be calculated as: Voltage=Value*(5/1023)
  • All 18bit differential values are in micro-volts. See the mcp3424 datasheet for information on voltage range and precision.
  • GPS coordinates are in NMEA-GLL format, thus of the form DDMM.MM == ‘DD’ degrees and ‘MM.MM’ minutes
  • GPS ‘N/S’ and ‘E/W’ tags (column 21 and 23) are translated to ’1/-1′ respectively

  • The UPOD will log raw data from whichever sensors are populated on the UPOD. Converting these data into concentrations can be a challenging task and depends very much on application. Please contact us if you would like information regarding methods for interpreting sensor outputs for the sensors used on the UPOD. Good publications also exist which discuss methods for post-processing data for various sensor types. upod snow 1
