16883Re: Lighting and surge protection
- Aug 1, 2010I am starting to see this problem with a 2350 connected to the PC via the La Crosse supplied serial to USB adapter.
What happens is that the unit seems to communicate with the PC fine for a few days. Then for no apparent reason the console stops communicating with the PC and no errors are displayed in the WUHU logs, yet the PC continues to run. I stop WUHU and then when I try to start WUHU again I get the message that the serial port is currently in use and so cannot connect. A reboot of the PC resolves the problem.

It is connected to my computer with a USB serial converter. It seems that once a week or so WUHU will simply lose communication with the Main unit located right next to the computer and the only way to get it back up is to reset the computer, does anyone else have this problem. Also when there is a thunderstorm with a lot of lighting it seems to knock out communication between the Therm sensor and the main unit even though it is directly wired and I hate when that happens because then I have to completely reset the unit to get communications to resume and I lose all my data. Now that being said I tried to put a normal phone line surge protector in the line to stop and surges from coming up the line and into the computer USB or the 2317 main unit. When I did this the communications would never come through almost like the surge protector was blocking the data communication, does anyone have a setup like this where they were successful in adding some type of surge protection?
