Trinket weather sensors

Finally completed my trinket weather sensors. An anemometer, wind vane, & rain gauge.

The anemometer is made with PVC & ladles from Walmart. It uses a reed switch and a magnet to count rotations. I calibrated it by hanging it out the window in my car. (Wife was driving). The wind vane uses a 10k 360 degrees Bournes potentiometer. The rain gauge is Acurite wireless sensor that I bought at walmart and cut apart to work with my setup. I connect it to a rasp pi via I2C to go with my other sensors and load into my database.

This will be setup at the in-law's farm to record the wind and rain.

You can find guides on how to build the sensors on my blog: [url]blog.cup-of-joe.me[/url] I haven't added the info for the interfacing with the trinket though, but I plan on doing that within the next couple of days.
