Yesterday I wrote about my hunt with the Wireshark to uncover the techniques of the Oregon Scientific LW301 climate station. I acquired by some means caught by the behavior of this tiny bugger. Chatting UDP and TCP like a computer system but no authentic server inside of. It created me curious.
When I took my Philipps screwdriver to open the blackbox, my bodyguard identified as “Butch” in her relatives, explained NO. Do not destroy your small weather station. But now as a child, if anyone said DON’T, I promptly obtained challenged and I translated this Really don’t into an critical DO! Currently I can tell you, this actions didn’t make my lifetime quick, but it produced it really fascinating.
Heaps of phrases. Let’s do it:
The screws of this sort of bins are typically concealed possibly underneath the label or beneath the rubber pads. The Oregon Scientific LW301’s screws are beneath the rubbers. Only loosen 4 screws and box falls open. It is a actual light-weight with considerably less than 100 grams.
If you are just a bit in components, you see in the major row from left to correct: the energy offer socket, an RJ45 network socket, the rest swap and 2 USB sockets. Which is what you also can see from exterior.
The heart of the machine is the black square with the blue and orange streaks. It is a Microchip PIC18F97J60 micro-controller. This black square does the full position. All the other components are there to enable. For illustration the other large black rectangle, the H1601CG is a integrated transformer for the community communication. Dumb and passive it adapts impedance and voltage.
Let us focus on the Microchip PIC18F97J60 micro-controller. There is a whole lot of facts readily available on the manufacturer’s site. There are huge software package libraries and instruments offered.
I experienced not but the time to study all the things. As we say listed here in the Philippines – tomorrow possibly. ?
