The RainWise CC-3000 MK-III Computer Interface is a device that will
record and store weather data received from MK-III sensor assemblies.
The CC-3000 MK-III Computer Interface has a 2 MB flash memory which
allows the device to log data independently of a computer. It provides
both current and historical information.
· Fast USB 2.0 interface ( RS-232 version available ).
· 2 MB of flash memory.
· NiMH battery backup.
· Inside Temperature.
· Advanced hi-speed processor.
· Integrated radio receiver.
· Software updates through your computer.
· Now supports both English and metric units.
· New command protocol
· Daylight savings support.
· Expansion port.
· Free software.
Free Software:Integrated Radio Receiver:
Each CC-3000 is shipped with a free version of Weatherview32 V8 Home Edition. Upgrades are available.
the previous interface, the LR radio receiver is build right into the
unit. This means less wires and a cleaner desk. A power cable and USB
cable are all that are required. The new switching power supply is
smaller and more efficient.
Fast USB or RS-232:
CC-3000 is normally shipped with a USB interface. An RS-232 version is
available for applications that require serial connections like cellular
and satellite modems. The baud rate has been boosted from 9600 to
115,200. Even with extra memory download times are dramatically reduced.
USB drivers are provided for Windows, Mac and Linux. Note: Only Windows
based software is currently available.
has been increased from 32K to 2MB. The 32K was RAM based which meant
if you lost power you lost your data. This is not the case with flash,
your data is non-volatile and will not be destroyed when power is lost.
The data stored in memory is compressed so the 2MB will allow for long
intervals between downloads. With a 49834 record capacity the CC-3000
will log for over 11 months at a 10 minute logging interval. The
capacity will vary depending selected sensors. A base record is 42 bytes
NiMH Battery Backup:
now uses NiMH battery backup. These batteries are much easier to get
than NiCAD and have substantially more capacity. Fully charged batteries
will keep the CC-3000 running for more than 24 hours. The new case
includes a battery compartment which makes installing the four batteries
based temperature sensor is built into the interface. This provides
inside temperature which can be very useful for freeze alarms in
High Speed Processor:
performance of the primary processor has been increased while also
reducing power consumption. The increased performance allows for faster
communications and more features.
new CPU can be reprogrammed via the USB or RS-232 interface. This means
that updates can be quickly and easily applied by the user. This also
allows for multiple software programs that use the same hardware.
Rainwise can now offer custom software designed for specific tasks.

English and Metric Units:
original interface was only available in English units. Metric was
achieved by having a PC application convert the data. The CC-3000 has
user selectable units.
New Command Protocol:
new command protocol was designed to offer greater flexibility, be more
user friendly and easier for software developers to use. The full
protocol and command list are supplied are available in the CC-3000
savings is now supported. The dates, times and shift are user
selectable. This allows the CC-3000 to be used in any country around the
In preparation for
future functionality the CC-3000 is equipped with an expansion port.
This connector will allow for future digital and analog sensors.
