I am using a simple script to get the outside temperature. Perl is in sctrict mode and run with the -w option. I seem to get this error back: Argument "AA90" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 2) line 1. Is this a bug? What is causing this? my $ws = Device::LaCrosse::WS23xx->new($serial) or die "Cannot communicate with $serial: $!\n"; my $outdoortemp = $ws->get("Outdoor_Temp"); my $indoortemp = $ws->get("Indoor_Temp"); print "$outdoortemp $indoortemp";

It is clearly a bug, but I can't figure out where. One other person has reported this, but I am unable to reproduce it. It seems to be a communication error with the device. Have you tried using Open2300 to see if you get the same error? http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/Open2300/WebHome

I have been using open2300 for about 4 years without any problems.
I use 2 different WS-2305 stations and never got that error.
Im not getting this error anymore at this moment.
Maybe AA90 is a memory area in the device and at that moment the data got corrupted?
Maybe when the device was sanctimoniously receiving info the the remote sensor?

Hi Lars,

  
Argument "AA90" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 2) line 1.

Is this a bug?
What is causing this?

Interesting... you mean: you are not seeing the error while using Device::LaCrosse::WS23xx.pm, or with Open2300? If you are using the Perl module and not seeing the error, that makes it even harder to track down. Show quoted text

It does seem possible, but there are checksums in place that are supposed to detect that. I'm really puzzled by this one. Ed

At this moment i am using your Perl lacrosse module without any problems.
The first time i tried your module it failed often, now it stopped failing and it works OK.
Maybe the ws2305 station was writing in that memory block when the Perl module was reading it?

Hi again, Is it possible for this module to be more accurate with windspeed? I pol the weatherstation every 5 minutes but only get the wind registered at the specific moment. Is there nothing in the memory on the weatherstation that holds the highest windspeed for the laste 5 / 10 minutes? -Lars

That has affected me too. To the best of my knowledge, there is no averaging or memory of wind speeds in the unit itself. The only way to determine max speed is to poll frequently. I ultimately changed to the wired connection and set my polling to 10 seconds. Sorry... Ed

The weird thing is is that the unit itself shows the windspeed quite good. So there must be something in the unit where it stores the values? It changes faster when the windspeed is high and slower when the windspeed it less.... Show quoted text

Interesting. I haven't looked at the unit in years, because I only care about the data and I can do a better job of displaying it than the LCD display. It's very possible that the unit does some internal processing to display a max or average wind speed. It's also possible that those values are accessible via the data protocol. But it's not in any of the documentation I've read, so there's no way for me to know about it. If you find any documentation describing any such fields, do let me know. Regards, Ed

I'm regularly seeing a similar error, reported by cron for wu-upload.pl: Argument "AA10" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 8) line 1. Argument "AAAA" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 11) line 1. Argument "AA10" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 13) line 1. It also occurred for my for my simple perl script which reported the following: Indoor_Temp = 22.9 Indoor_Humidity = 63 Argument "AA10" isn't numeric in division (/) at (eval 3) line 1. Outdoor_Temp = -30 Outdoor_Humidity = AA Not long after the figures returned to the proper values: Outdoor_Temp = 17.3 Outdoor_Humidity = 75

I've uploaded a new Device-Lacrosse-WS23xx to CPAN, version 0.08. This doesn't fix the problem, because I can think of no way for me to fix it. The device is returning bad data. What this version does is issue a warning (if warnings are enabled), and return undef for the given value. The warning includes the bad data and the name of the requested field.
