PROGRAM MODE

The Program Mode is laid out in a manner that allows you to program each function separately, or you can follow the instructions entirely to program the Weather Center. Complete programming is usually done for the initial set-up,and will require you to skip step 1 of each programming section (from section III to XII). The programming mode can be exited at any time by either pressing theMIN/MAX button, or waiting for the20-secondtimeout to take effect.

**Important note: Due to a programming error, the WS-7095Uwill not properly recognize the dates March 1 or 2. When the date switches from February 28 (February 29 in leap years), the unit will reset all information to the default values. Any attempt to set this unit to March 1 or 2 will give the same result. To prevent this, set the unit to March 3 on February 28 or sooner. Once the actual date is March 3, you may then reset it. As of this printing, no software changes are scheduled, and we apologize for that. This product is very specialized, and volumes do not allow us to easily change the software. We appreciate your business, and strive to maintain our quality of products. We hope that you will find this unit has enough good features to help you overlook the missed programming. Feel free to call ore-mailus with any further questions.

X.DISPLAYING RELATIVE hPa/inHg OR ABSOLUTE hPa/inHg

Note: Air pressure can be displayed in four different measures:

Relative hPa/inHg and Absolute hPa/inHg. Absolute settings give a true and real-timeair pressure reading (at user’s location) that cannot be manually calibrated. Relative air pressure is measured in relation to sea level and is the standard meteorological form of measure. Relative air pressure settings must be manually programmed to suit the users needs. Relative air pressure can be found from local weather services. Absolute air pressure decreases by about 0.01 inHg for every 10 feet in altitude. In higher altitudes (above 6,500 feet), this effect is less noticeable. TheWS-7095Uwill measure absolute pressure reliably up to 7,500 feet. There is no limit for relative air pressure since the user sets it.

1.Press the SET button twelve times to reach Relative or Absolute Display setting mode.

FEATURES & OPERATIONS

I.MOON PHASE

The Moon Phases, and their corresponding dates and tide levels, appear in LCD 2. While viewing LCD 2 in the normal display mode, the current moon phase, corresponding tide level, and current date are all displayed. There are 8 visible Moon Phases that will show in the LCD:

Waxing Moon Phases

 

Waning Moon Phases

 

New Moon/High Tide

 

Full Moon/High Tide

Crescent Moon/Medium Tide

 

Gibbous/Medium Tide

First Quarter Moon/Low Tide

 

Last Quarter Moon/Low Tide

Gibbous/Medium Tide

 

Crescent Moon/Medium Tide

 

 

 

 

 

The Weather Center is programmed with all moon phases, corresponding dates, and the tide levels from the year 1998 until 2020.

1.To enter the Moon Phase mode from the normal display mode, press the MOON button.

2.Now showing in LCD 2 is the current moon phase, corresponding tide level, and the date that this moon phase began (keep in mind that if your current moon phase began on the current date, there will be no change in date).

Note: The date display (month/date/year or weekday/month/day) is determined by the date display setting that you entered in section VII of the Programming Mode.

While still in the Moon Phase:

3.Press the MOON button a second time. Now appearing in LCD 2 is the current moon phase and the subsequent date at which the current moon phase will be entered into again. Repeating this will continue to show subsequent dates until the year 2020, then the information will wrap around and begin to display information starting from the year 1998.

4.Press the CH/+ button. LCD 2 now shows the next moon phase and the date it begins. Continue to press theCH/+ button to show

11

every moon phase and its beginning dates until the year 2020 (wrapping around to 1998).

Note: The Moon Phase features allow for the discovery of dates of specific moon phases. Hypothetically, if the date of the next full moon were desired (and the current moon phase was not a full moon), simply press the MOON button, press the CH/+ button repeatedly until you reach a full moon display in LCD2—thedate of the next full moon would be displayed. Press the CH/+ button repeatedly and the dates of all full moons until the year 2020 will sequentially appear.

II.MINIMUM & MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES

A.DISPLAYS AND FUNCTIONS

The Weather Center automatically stores the minimum and maximum temperatures, and the time and date of their occurrence. In either LCD 3 or LCD 6 (Indoor and Outdoor respectively) the minimum temperature appears on the left side of the screen and is marked by the “MIN” (minimum) icon, while the maximum temperature appears on the right side of the screen and is marked by the “MAX” (maximum)

icon. The “MIN” temperatures are rounded down, and the “MAX” temperatures are rounded up—nomatter what the decimal values are. To view the times and dates these temperatures were recorded, follow the below procedures.

1.Press the MIN/MAX button. The Current Indoor temperature in LCD 3 shifts to a flashing display of the minimum recorded indoor temperature, the smaller “MIN” temperature also flashes. The recorded time simultaneously displays in LCD 1, and the date simultaneously displays in LCD 2.

12

Note: The time and date will automatically and simultaneously appear in their respective LCD’s for all following steps in this section.

2.Press the MIN/MAX button a second time. The flashing minimum temperature in LCD 3 shifts to flash the recorded maximum temperature.

3.Press the MIN/MAX button a third time. In LCD 6 the Current Outdoor temperature shifts to a flashing display of the minimum recorded outdoor temperature.

4.Press the MIN/MAX button a fourth time. The flashing minimum temperature in LCD 6 shifts to flash the recorded maximum temperature.

5.Press the MIN/MAX a final time and the LCD’s return to normal display mode.

B.RESETTING THE MINIMUM & MAXIMUM RECORDS

Hold down the MIN/MAX button for 3 seconds. This will reset all recorded minimum and maximum temperatures for both the Indoor and Outdoor records. The “MIN” and “MAX” displays will show the rounded figures for the current temperature.

III.WEATHER FORECAST & WEATHER ICONS

The weather forecasting feature is estimated to be 75% accurate, and is based solely upon the change of air pressure over time. The WS-7095Uaverages pastair-pressurereadings to provide an accurate forecast— creating a necessity to disregard all weather forecasting for12-24hours after the unit has beenset-up,reset, or moved from one altitude to another (i.e. from one floor of a building to another floor). In areas where the weather is not affected by the change of air pressure, this feature will be less accurate.

A.WEATHER ICONS

There are 3 possible weather icons that will be displayed at various times in LCD 4:

Sunny

Sun with Clouds

Clouds with Rain

13

Weather Tendency Arrow

Sunny—indicatesthat the weather is expected to improve (not that the weather will be sunny).

Sun with Clouds—indicatesthat the weather is expected to be fair (not that the weather will be sunny with clouds).

Clouds with Rain—indicatesthat the weather is expected to get worse (not that the weather will be rainy).

The weather icons change when the unit detects a change in air pressure. The icons change in order, from “sunny” to “sun with clouds” to “clouds with rain” or the reverse. It will not change from “sunny” directly to “clouds with rain”, although it is possible for the change to occur quickly. If the syumbols do not change, the weather has not changed (or the change has been slow and gradual).

B. WEATHER TENDENCY ARROWS

LCD 4 also displays the weather tendency arrows. There is one that points up (on the left side of the

LCD) and one that points down (on the right side of the LCD). These arrows reflect current changes in the air pressure. An arrow pointing up indicates that the

air pressure is increasing and the weather is expected to improve or remain good, and arrow pointing down indicates that the air pressure

is decreasing and the weather is expected to become worse or remain poor. No arrow means the pressure is stable.

C.STORM WARNING

A storm can be expected if there is a drop of 4 hPa or more in less than 6 hours. The clouds with rain icon will be displayed and the tendency arrow that points down will beflashing—indicatingthe storm warning feature has been activated. The flashing will stop when the air pressure stabilizes or begins to rise.

D. COMFORT LEVEL INDICATOR

,1

The comfort level indicator appears in lower portion of LCD 3 as either a “happy-face”to the left of the indoor humidity, or as a“sad-face”to the right of

14

 

 

Comfort Level Indicator

the indoor humidity. The indicator will display a “happy-face”when the temperature is between 68°F and 79°F (20°C and 25.9°C), and the humidity is between 45% and 64%. A“sad-face”will be displayed when the temperature and humidity are outside the mentioned ranges.

If the humidity is below 45% the word “DRY” will appear to the right of the “sad-face”icon. If the humidity is above 54% the word “wet” will appear to the right of the“sad-face”icon.

IV. BAR GRAPH HISTORIES

A.AIR PRESSURE HISTORY

The air pressure is indicated by the appearance of the word “PRESSURE” at the top of the LCD 5 screen.

The bar graph (in LCD 5) shows in hPa (Hekto Pascal) the recorded air pressure over the past 24-hours.The horizontal axis shows the hours at increments of24-hours,18-hours,12-hours,6-hours,3-hours,2-hours,1-hour,and0-hours.The vertical axis is set by hPa: the “0” on this axis represents the current hPa, and + or – 1,3,5, or 7 shows (in hPa) how high or low the past air pressure was as compared to the current one. The “0” on the vertical axis indicates the air pressure value seen in LCD 4. The “0” on the horizontal axis indicates that the “0” on the vertical axis is the present air pressure. Each brick on the bar graph represents a value of 0.03 hPa, and each brick also has a corresponding value on the verticle axis. Multiply the two values to find past air pressure (note the + or – sign of values on the verticle axis); i.e.

0.03 hPa x 3 = 0.09 hPa, now add this value to the air pressure (in LCD 4) to evaluate what past air pressures have been.

 

Position “0” on both the

 

vertical and horizontal

 

indicate present air pressure.

 

“-1”on the horizontal was

Add –0.03to current air

P

pressure readings to attain

the air pressure 1-hourago.

 

 

A decline in air pressure is

 

shown between the “-3”and

 

“-1”hours.

Air pressure trends can be determined by simply glancing at the bar graph. If the bars are rising (higher on the right than the left) then the

15

air pressure has a rising trend, and the weather should improve. If the bars are dropping (lower on the right than the left) then the air pressure has a falling trend, and the weather should worsen.

B.RAINFALL HISTORY

The bar graph will also display the rainfall history; this mode is indicated by the appearance of the word “RAIN” at the top of the LCD 5 screen.

The horizontal axis measures the past time periods, with “0” representing the current day, week, or month and “7” representing the oldest information (7 days ago, 7 weeks ago, or 7 months ago). The graph reads from right to left.

The vertical axis measures the rainfall in either preferred increments of inches or millimeters. The normal (default) measurement scale is: in inches {0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 5, 10}; in millimeters {0, 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, 50, 100}. If, within any selected time period (1 day, 1 week, 1 month), rainfall exceeds 7 inches (178mm) the measurement scale automatically changes to: in inches {0, 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50, 100}; in millimeters {0, 10, 30, 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000}.

The bar graph will display the rainfall history either by day, week, or month. To select which display:

1.Press the RAIN button twice. The “DAY” icon will flash beside the “RAIN” icon at the top of LCD 5.

2.Press the CH/+ button to toggle through the “WEEK,” “MONTH,” and “DAY” icons.

3.Press the RAIN button (or wait 20 seconds) to confirm and exit this selection mode.

If “DAY” is selected, the graph will display the rainfall history for the past 7 days. The information that is displayed in column “0” (the right column) is renewed daily at midnight, and the information contained in the columns is shifted to the left. If “WEEK” is selected, the graph will display the rainfall history for the past 7 weeks. The information that is displayed in column “0” is renewed every Monday at midnight, and the information contained in the columns is shifted to the left. If “MONTH” is selected, the graph will display the rainfall history for the past 7 months. The information displayed in column “0” is renewed on the first day of every month, at minight. The information contained in the columns is shifted to the left.

16

The bar graph displays the columns sequentially from “0” to “7” until all columns are showing. Then they are hidden again, and the sequential display is repeated. It is possible to read each column, one at a time—simultaneouslydisplaying the numeric measurement for that column directly under the bar graph. To do this:

1.Press the RAIN button twice, either “DAY,” “WEEK,” or “MONTH” should flash to the left of the “RAIN” icon.

2.Press the SET button, column “0” will flash, and the rainfall measurement value is displayed directly under the bar graph.

3.Press the CH/+ button to toggle through columns “0” to “7.”

4.While column “7” is flashing press the CH/+ button to exit this mode.

V.RAINFALL QUANTITY

The rainfall quantities can be displayed 4 different ways, represented by 4 different time period icons, and measured in 2 different units of measure (inches or millimeters). The quantities are displayed in the lower portion of LCD 5, and the time period icons appear between the quantity and the bar graph.

1.While in normal viewing mode, press the “RAIN” key once. The current selected period will flash (“TOTAL”, “1H, “24H”, or the rain icon).

2.Press the “+” key to toggle through the selections. Following is a list of the 4 time period icons and a description of what they represent.

“TOTAL”—(thedefault setting) shows the total accumulated rainfall since the lastset-upor manual reset.

“1h”—showsthe rainfall measurement of the past hour. Information is updated every hour on thehalf-hour(i.e. …at 6:30, at 7:30 and at 8:30…).

“24h”—showsthe measured rainfall of the last24-hourperiod. Updates are made daily at 7:00 am.

rain icon”—resetsautomatically at the beginning of a rainfall, it will show and keep track of the current rainfall quantities, once the current rainfall is complete it will display the quantity of that rainfall until a new rain begins, then it will automatically reset.

3.Press the “RAIN” key twice to exit this mode, or do not press any buttons for 20 seconds.

17

VI. RESETTING RAINFALL INFORMATION

A.RAINFALL QUANTITY TOTALS

Resetting the Rainfall Quantity Totals will clear the numeric data held under “TOTAL,” “1h,” and “24h,” resetting all to 0.00 (appearing in LCD 5).

From any selected normal display mode:

1.Press and hold the RAIN button for 3 seconds.

2.Resetting will automatically shift to display “TOTAL.” The numeric data under “TOTAL” in LCD 5 will read 0.00.

Note: Resetting the Rainfall Quantity Totals does not affect the Rainfall History represented in the bar graph.

B.MANUAL SETTING OF THE RAIN MULTIPLICATOR

Note: The rain multiplicator is the height of rain held in theteeter-totterbucket (inside the rain gauge) before it is tipped. It is preset to a value of 0.267mm by the manufacturer prior to shipping; this number produces the most accurate rainfall measurement. There is no need to manually set this number unless it has been changed.

1.Remove the batteries and wait 30 seconds. (This will also reset the Rainfall Quantity Totals).

2.Checking the polarity, install batteries.

3.During the brief 2 seconds that all LCD screens light up, simultaneously press and hold the MOON andMIN/MAX buttons.

4.Three numbers will appear in LCD1 (“267” is the default), with the last digit (7) flashing.

5.Use the CH/+ button to change the last digit to a 7 and press theSET button.

6.Use the CH/+ button to change the middle digit to a 6 and press theSET button.

7.Use the CH/+ button to change the first digit to a 2 and press theSET button. The Weather Center will enter into normal operating mode. Do not press any buttons while the Weather Center searches for transmisssion signals.

8.Follow Program Mode for set-upproceedures.

18

C.HARD RESET OF EEPROM WEATHER CENTER MEMORY

Note: This is to be used if there are problems with transmission, or if the rainfall history bar graph needs to be cleared.

1.Remove the batteries and wait 30 seconds. (This will also reset the Rainfall Quantity Totals).

2.Checking the polarity, install batteries.

3.During the brief 2 seconds that all LCD screens light up, simultaneously press and hold the MOON andMIN/MAX buttons.

“267” (the default rain multiplicator setting) will appear in LCD 1. The “7” will be flashing.

If “267” does not appear, it will be necessary to set the manually set the digits. Use the CH/+ button to change the digit, and the SET button to select the digit to be changed.

4.Press the SET button two times. (The 2 should flash).

5.Hold the SET button down until the air pressure (in hPa) briefly flashes in LCD 4. “LCD 7” will flash in LCD 2 for 15 seconds.

6.Do not press any buttons while the Weather Center searches for transmission signals.

7.Follow Program Mode for set-upprocedures.

VII. ADDING MORE SENSORS (optional)

The WS-7095Ucan receive signals from up to three Sensors. The Sensor model(s) that you choose will come with their own set ofinstructions—followthose instructions for a complete guide to setting up. Following are some brief instructions for the basicset-upof additional sensors with theWS-7095U.Additional sensors can be purchased through the same dealer as this Weather Center, or by contacting La Crosse Technology directly (contact information can be found at the end of this manual). A TX4U will monitor temperature and humidity (it is the same model that comes with theWS-7095U),a TX3U will monitor temperature only, and the TX3UP monitors temperature via a 10 foot probe for use in pools, spas, etc. The TX3 units do not monitor humidity, thus when they transmit their information to the Weather Center dashes “--”appear in the Humidity Display.

Note: When setting up multiple sensors it is important to remove the batteries from all existing units in operation, then to insert batteries first into all the sensors, and in numeric sequence. Second install batteries into the Weather Center. Transmission problems will arise if this is not done correctly and if the total time forset-upexceeds 6 min.

A.SET-UPOF MULTIPLE SENSORS

Note: The first sensor signal that the Weather Center receives is automatically assigned as the “boxed #1.” The 2nd to be received is the “boxed #2,” and the 3rd is the “boxed #3.”

1.It is necessary to remove the batteries from all units currently in operation.

2.Remove the battery covers to all sensor units (new and old).

3.Place all sensors in a numeric sequential order.

4.In sequential order, install batteries into the sensors (follow the same battery installation procedures seen in section I. A).

5.Install batteries into the Weather Center.

6.Follow the Programming Mode instructions to program and set-upthe Weather Center.

B.SELECTING WHICH SENSOR DATA TO DISPLAY

1.To view the outdoor temperature and humidity from a different sensor, press the CH/+ button. A shift from a “boxed #1” to a “boxed #2” should be observed under the “MIN” icon in LCD 6.

2.Press the CH/+ button a second time to shift from the “boxed #2” to the “boxed #3”. (Information will display only if you have three sensors in operation).

3.To view information from the first sensor again, press the CH/+ button.

MOUNTING

Note: Before permanently mounting, ensure that the Weather Center is able to receive signals from the sensors at the desired location. Extreme and sudden changes in temperature will decrease the accuracy of the Weather Center, and changes in elevation will result with inaccurate weather forecasting for the next 12 to 24 hours. These changes will require a 12 to 24 hour wait before obtaining reliable data. To achieve a true temperature reading, avoid mounting theTX4U—RemoteThermo-Hygro(or any sensor) where direct sunlight can reach the sensor. We recommend that you mount the sensor on aNorth-facingwall. The sending range of the TX4U and the TX5U is80-ft(25m) however obstacles such as walls, concrete, and large metal objects can reduce the range. Place all units in their desired location, and wait approximately 15 minutes before permanently mounting to ensure that there is proper reception. The Weather Center should display an outdoor temperature in LCD 6 within 5 minutes of setting up. If the Weather Center loses the signal from the sensor, it will display the last temperature reading for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of not receiving any signals, LCD 6 will display “--.-”.LCD 5 should show “0.0” within 6 minutes of receiving signals from the TX5U. If the TX5U signal is lost“--.-”will appear in LCD 5.
