    Default ARVP sensors seem to have gone down

    Looks like the extended cloud cover may have exhausted the battery packs on the Auto Road stations. Sorry to see a break in the data stream. Does anyone know if these systems have an internal data logger that might continue to collect information when in a low power situation?

    Maybe all they needed was a little sunshine. They are back up this AM.

    Yes, they log the data. To conserve battery power the transmitters shutdown, while data continues to be collected for several days.

    I think they were made by Campbell Scientific, other than that I don't know.

    15 minutes of refreshing and you can probably figure it out.
