New App: VS20 Visibility Sensor

The Lufft I-BOX supports the visivility sensor VS20. Just install in the new App VS20 and start measuring.

The new App was released a long time ago for selected customers. Due to demand of customers we released the app to the App-Store. The App is available in Version 1.0.1.

The App supports UMB class 3 protocol. Since the VS20 sucessor VS20k also supports this protocol the App supports also VS20k.

The App is available for free.

Winter is here – the winter sensor, too!

When snow is falling we know winter is here. But lots of applications need precisely know how much winter is here. The Lufft snow sensor SHM30 has got its app just right in time before the snow comes.

The SHM30 snow height sensor can be connected to the Lufft I-BOX using the Anacon analog/digital converter.  For configuration the linearization parameters (snow height on 4 and 20 mA)  have to be entered and the Anacon port. That’s is.

Two Apps for the Lufft WS sensor family

Today we have released a to new Apps for Lufft WS sensor family. The compact weather stations are fully supported with internal and external channels.:

  • WS200-UMB
  • WS30x-UMB: WS300-UMB, WS301-UMB, WS302-UMB, WS303-UMB, WS304-UMB
  • WS40x-UMB: WS400-UMB, WS401-UMB
  • WS50x-UMB: WS500-UMB, WS510-UMB
  • WS60x-UMB: WS600-UMB, WS601-UMB
  • WS700-UMB

These sensors can bei connected either by a serial link (RS-485) or an Ethernet link. To etablish an Ethernet connection to the WS sensors, an Ethernet/RS-485-converter is required. This setup is recommended if the distance from the sensor to the Lufft I-BOX doesn’t allow to use serial cables. The App WS-serial required the hardware Lufft I-BOX serial.

New App: Timesync

There is a clock builtin in the Lufft I-BOX. This clock is as accurate as the quartz crystal oscillator used. If your Lufft I-BOX needs more accurate time and date settings e.g. for time reference there is a new app for that. Using the App timesync synchronizes the internal clock once a day with an external (ntp)  timeserver. Just install this app, configure the time server and the clock is always accurate.

New app: LoggerJSON

loggerjsonThe new app LoggerJSON complements the datalogger app and provides access to measured data inside the datalogger. the app LoggerJSON offers a REST interface to access:

  • measured data (using timestamps and time spans)
  • logged channels
  • configuration data about the datalogger

Don’t wait and install the LoggerJSON app on your Lufft I-BOX.


New app: datalogger

The long awaited new app is out. Today we released the new datalogger app. The datalogger app enables to record measurement data and make it accessible later. Each channel can be selected for recording. There is a huge storage space availabe inside the Lufft I-BOX for the datalogger: 1 million masurement values can be stored. Since data storage is organized in a ringbuffer, the latest data will kept even if the buffer runs full.

icon-datalogger The datalogger is tagged with a price of 299 EUR.

The datalogger app comes with a demo version. This version is limitied to a capacity of 100 values. When recording 10 channels, 10 intervals are store, in case of one channel, 100 intervals are stored. In any case: Try before you buy!

Make a full featured datalogger out of your Lufft I-BOX and get your datalogger demo now!

New App: Measuring Time

The latest App in the App-Store allows to measure date and time units (seconds, minuts, …). This App helps to simplify post processing with OUT-Apps by delivering measured values that are easy to determine in test cases. Or just play with this App as an IN-App if there is no read IN-device connected to your Lufft I-BOX.

The timegen IN-App is provided for free. More info and the download can be found here.
