Abstract

This document describes the installation and operation of the GRUAN Monitor MW41 (GM41) software tool version 0.1.9. Also the connection of additional sensors with Xdata interface and protocol to the Vaisala RS41 radiosonde is described in short. The GM41 tool decodes and displays the data stream of such instruments connected to the RS41 using the Xdata protocol. The purpose of GM41 is to verify that the connected instruments are working properly, and that the recorded data are within expected limits. In addition, the pin configuration for the Xdata cable is documented.
