Weather Pi – first one now soldered

Weather-Pi-PCB-SolderedMy first Weather Pi is now soldered up. Took about 45 minutes to solder it.

For some reason the resisters I ordered from CPC seem to be smaller than what I would class as "normal" size. This caused delays in bending the legs to the correct size.

After further research I bought resisters about 3.2mm in length rather than the normal 6mm in size.  I still haven't worked out what the difference is between them.

I decided the first Weather Pi would be a low profile version, so used 90 degree Molex connectors.

The PCB includes 3 LED connection points, but decided just to solder the LED's straight to the PCB.

  1. Hi,

    Im really interested in this – I have been considering setting up a Pi for weather monitoring for a while now but not got round to getting anything off the ground. How have you been getting on with the project?
