The article presents a model of a weather receiving station comprising a microcontroller system and LabVIEW application. The microcontroller system is equipped with a receiving radio modem and is intended to decode the frames of data transmitted by a weather station used to monitor weather sensors. The decoded stream of data is sent to a PC computer via a serial interface. The data is distributed over the Ethernet via a LabVIEW DataSocket application, based on the TCP protocol. The data is saved to a text file associated with the local DataSocket server. The DataSocket server allows access to the data by DataSocket clients connecting over the local network. The DataSocket client application enables presentation of current and historical data on a timeline graph.
