Open Hardware Weather board details: @prolificd @mixdev

Every board we build is tested so that we know it was built correctly. To support this, the default ANSI mode in the supplied firmware will test each sensor output and display FAIL if it is out of range. The ranges were chosen to be reasonable for our factory floor where testing is done, For example, the temperature should be between 65F and 85F. If the reading is outside that range, there’s either a problem with the board, or with our HVAC system. If you don’t have the Weather Meters connected to the board, windspeed and rainfall readings of zero will show as FAIL since our test jig simulates input to those sensors. (Note that you can turn off data from the nonexistent Weather Meters via the menu). If you’re getting reasonable values for the actual sensor outputs for your location (which may have different conditions than our factory floor), than nothing has FAILed. If th...
