We are seeing the relative humidity and air temperature units fail on 3 of the 4 Endurance coastal surface moorings. The data from the sensors is showing up as 'NaN' in the METBK data stream.

This issue began last week with CE07SHSM on 2016-12-17. We are now seeing it on CE02SHSM, as of today 2016-12-21. Have also seen a couple instances on CE09OSSM. Starts as an intermittent issue and then gets progressively worse until there is no more relative humidity and temperature data.

CE07SHSM METBK wind sensor stopped working

Wind sensor stopped working. This means the data stream from the METBK is changed, so no data from any of the METBK sensors are being read properly by CI. However, all of these other METBK are actually working and telemetering reasonable data.

METBK parsers cannot read the METBK data from this instrument now because the DCL changed the format of the file upon wind sensor failure.

CE07SHSM no longer able to recharge batteries (PSC)

The mooring stopped receiving power from photo voltaic panel #1 of 4 on Nov-2. By Nov-20, the mooring stopped receiving power from two more solar panels (PV2 & PV4) and one of two wind turbines (WT2). This indicates the Power System Controller (PSC) they connect to is failing. Mooring components will be shut down as the mooring loses the ability to recharge its batteries.
