The wind sensor can take 3 readings:
6
•
The wind speed and directions
•
The outdoor temperature (Channel 1 only)
•
The outdoor relative humidity (Channel 1 only)
The sensor is battery operated and is capable of
transmitting data to the base station wirelessly within an
approximate operating range of 100 meters (328 feet).
3
NOTE For best results, ensure that the wind direction
indicator on the wind sensor points to the North to
enable an accurate reading. The sensor also should
be positioned in an open area away from trees or other
obstructions.
4
To set up the wind sensor main body on the steel
pole:
1. Wind vane measuring the wind speed
3. Battery compartment
1. Assemble the wind direction pointer on the top of the
wind sensor.
4. RESET hole
2. Use the screw (Type B) to fix.
5. North indicator
3. Assemble the wind vanes on the top of the wind
pointer.

6. Use the guiding end to start inserting the steel pole
at a perpendicular angle into the ground.
18
WARNING Make sure that there are NO electric
cables / power lines, gas / water pipes in the area
where you are placing the steel pole. Do not place
the pole into a hard rocky type of ground as it may
bend or break the pole. It should be inserted into
soft soil.
7. Place a wooden block on the top of the pole. With
a hammer, hit the wooden block to insert the pole at
a perpendicular angle to the ground until reaching
the base.
