Note:

When putting the Weather Center into operation, it is important to perform in close proximity (e.g. on a table) a complete wiring and set-upof the system. This step is important to test all components for correct function before placing and mounting them at their final destinations (SeePositioning below). Spin the wind vane and tip the rain gauge to test.

1.Unwind the cables of the Wind sensor. Connect the Wind sensor to the Thermohygro transmitter by plugging the connector head into the socket of the Thermohygro sensor. The cord should “click” into place.

Sockets for wind sensor

2.First insert the batteries into the Thermo-hygrosensor and Rain sensor (“How to install and replace the batteries into the Thermo-hygro sensor“ and “How to install and replace the batteries into the Rain sensor” below).

3.Then insert the batteries into the Weather Center (see “How to install and replace the batteries into the Weather Center” below). Once the batteries are installed, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tone will

4

be heard. It will then display the time as 12:00, the date as 1.1.05, the weather icons, and air pressure value. "- - -"will be shown for outdoor data.

4.Afterwards, the Weather Center will start receiving data from the transmitter. The transmission reception icon will be blinking to indicate that the station is trying to get the thermo-hygrotransmitter data. The outdoor temperature, humidity, wind data should then be displayed on the Weather Center. If this does not happen after 135 seconds, the batteries will need to be removed from all units. You will have to start again from step 2.

5.The transmitter reception icon is now blinking again to indicate that the station is trying to get the rain sensor data. It will stop blinking once the rain sensor has been detected. If this does not happen after 135 seconds, you will need to start again from step 2.

6.You may need to check the cable for correct connection and all the components for correct function by manually turning the wind-gaugeby moving the windvane; tilting the rain sensor to hear the impact of the internal moving seesaw, etc. (seePositioning below).

7.Time and date shall be manually set (See Manual Setting below).

8.After the Weather Center has been checked for correct function with regard to the above points and found fit, the initial set up of the weather station system is finished and the mounting of the system components can take place. It must be ensured however that all components work properly together at their chosen mounting or standing locations. If e.g. there appear to be problems with the 915 MHz radio transmission, they can mostly be overcome by slightly changing the mounting locations or turning the base station.

5

If the signal reception is not successful on the first frequency (915MHz) for 45 seconds, the frequency is changed to 920MHz and the learning is tried another 45 seconds. If still not successful, the reception is tried for 45 seconds on 910MHz. This will also be done for re-synchronization.

HOW TO INSTALL AND REPLACE THE BATTERIES INTO THE THERMO-HYGROSENSOR

The outdoor Thermo-hygrosensor works with 2 x AA, IEC LR6 1.5V Alkaline batteries. To install and replace the batteries, please follow the steps below:

1.Uninstall the rain cover of the transmitter.

2.Remove the battery compartment cover.

3. Insert the batteries, observing the correct polarity (see the marking in the battery compartment).

4.Replace the battery cover.

Note:

In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be reset by following the setting up procedures. This is because a random security code is assigned by the thermo-hygrosensor atstart-upand this code must be received and stored by the Weather Center in the first several minutes of power being supplied to it.

7

Note:

The radio communication between the receiver and the transmitters in the open field reaches distances of max 330 feet, provided there are no interfering obstacles such as buildings, trees, vehicles, high voltage lines, etc.

9.Radio interferences created by PC screens, radios or TV sets can in some cases entirely cut off radio communication. Please consider this when choosing standing or mounting locations into consideration when choosing standing or mounting locations.

Note :

After batteries are installed in the transmitter, install the batteries in the weather center to receive the signal from the transmitters as soon as possible. If the weather center is powered more than 5 hours after the transmitter is powered, the weather center will never receive signal successfully from the transmitters. In this case, user will need to reinstall the batteries from all the transmitters to redo set-upprocedure.

After batteries are installed, there will be synchronization between weather center and the transmitters. At this time, the signal reception icon will be blinking. When the signal is successfully received by the weather center, the icon will be switched on. (If it is not successful, the icon will not be shown in LCD) So the user can easily see whether the last reception was successful (icon on) or not (icon off). On the other hand, the short blinking of the icon shows that a reception is in progress.

Now fix the entire unit to a suitable mast using theU-bolt,washers and nuts found in this set.

Note: For best results mount the wind sensor onto a mast to allow the wind to freely travel from all directions to enable an accurate reading (ideal mast size should be from Ø5/8” to 11/4”). Ensure that the cable of the wind sensor meets your distance requirements

Rain sensor

The rain sensor should be mounted horizontally about 2-3ftoff from the ground (or higher) in an open area away from trees or other coverings to allow rain to fall naturally for an accurate reading.

Note: For best results ensure the base is horizontal to allow maximum drainage of any collected rain

Thermo-hygroSensor

To wall mount the thermo-hygrosensor, fix the wall holder onto the desired wall (2 screws are supplied), plug the sensor firmly into the wall holder and then carefully replace the rain cover back over thethermo-hygrosensor.

24

Note: After mounting the units, should the weather data not be received, user may need to remove the batteries from all units and redo theset-upprocedures after about 5 minutes.
