FieldLynx fails to receive a wind reading despite the gauge being connected and working. How can I correct this?

If the Wind Gauge (WG) starts the countdown and takes a reading, check the following:

  1. Check the battery in the WG. A low battery may cause the failure. Try plugging the wind gauge into an AC source to determine if the device works with sufficient power.
  2. The USB to serial adapter may be the cause of the issue. On some Win7 computers the adapter will output commands but will not receive data. Try connecting the WG to the Camera C-Box or camera back serial connections.

If the countdown does not start on the WG, check your connections and setup in the Wind Options.
