Remote transmission of outdoor temperature to
Temperature Station by 868 MHz signals
Dual channel transmitter*: one internal channel
and one probe channel
Shower proof casing
Wall mounting and table stand
This socket is only for the
external probe. Do not
apply power plug to it.
Optional external
probe
*DUAL CHANNEL TRANSMITTER There are an internal channel and an external probe channel in the transmitter.
The data measured by the internal sensor and the measuring probe will be shown on the
transmitter's display as Channel "1" and "2" respectively. The two readings will be
44
automatically toggled to display. However, if the probe is unplugged, the transmitter' s
display will only show the reading from the inner transmitter.
Once the transmitter is successfully recognized by the temperature station, Channel 1 of
the Temperature station will display the temperature data measured by internal sensor and
Channel 2 will display the temperature estimated by the probe.
If the measuring probe is unplugged, the "probe channel" on Temperature station will show
"---", yet the data from the internal transmitter will still be shown on Channel 1 .
The probe can be connected to the remote temperature transmitter anytime after initial
setup. There is no need to reset the units, should the probe be unplugged or re-plugged
again. The Temperature Station will automatically detect the temperature probe data and
will display the temperature data on Channel 2 after the probe is plugged.
SETTING UP:
When one transmitter is used:
1.
First, insert the batteries into the transmitter (see “Install and replace batteries in
the Temperature transmitter” below).
2.
Within 30 seconds of powering up the transmitter, insert the batteries to the
Temperature Station (see “Install and replace batteries in the Temperature
Station” below). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light
up briefly. Then the indoor temperature and the time as 0:00 will be displayed. If
they are not shown on LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at
45
3.
4.
least 60 seconds before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed, user
may proceed to the next step.
After the batteries are inserted, the Temperature Station will start receiving data
signal from the transmitter.
If the optional probe has been plugged to the dual channel transmitter, the outdoor
temperature should then be displayed on the Temperature Station on channel 1 and
2. Also, the signal reception icon will be displayed. If this does not happen after 2
minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.
Note:
Channel 1 will show the reading from the internal sensor of the dual channel transmitter;
Channel 2 will show the reading sensed by the probe. If the probe is not plugged to the
transmitter, " - -" will be shown on Channel 2.
5.
6.
In order to ensure sufficient 868 MHz transmission, the final position between the
Temperature Station and the transmitter should not be more than 100 meters (see
notes on “Positioning” and “868 MHz Reception”).
Once the remote temperature has been received and displayed on the Temperature
Station, the DCF time code reception is automatically started. This takes typically
between 3-5 minutes in good conditions—but may take up to 4 nights.
When two transmitters are used
1.
User shall remove all the batteries from the Temperature Station and transmitters and
46
2.
3.
4.
5.
wait 60 seconds (if setting has been done with one transmitter before).
Insert the batteries into the first transmitter.
Within 30 seconds of powering up the first transmitter, insert the batteries into the
Temperature Station. Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will
light up briefly. Then the indoor temperature and the time as 0:00 will be displayed. If
they are not shown on the LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at
least 60 seconds before reinserting them.
The outdoor temperature readings from the first transmitter (Channel 1 and 2) should
then be displayed on the Temperature Station (if probe sensor has been installed
onto the first transmitter). If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will
need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries into the second transmitter as soon as the outdoor temperatures
from the first transmitter are displayed on the Temperature Station.
Note: User must insert the batteries into the second transmitter within 30 seconds of
reception of the first transmitter.
6.
The outdoor temperature reading from the second transmitter will be shown on the
LCD and the Channel No. will shift back to "1", indicating that all three channels are
running successfully. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to
be removed from all the units and reset from step 1.
47
Note: After the Temperature Station has successfully received the second transmitter,
Channel 3 will display the data measured by the internal sensor of the second dual channel
transmitter. Yet the probe data from the second transmitter will not be displayed on the
Temperature Station.
7.
Once the remote temperature has been received and displayed on the Temperature
Station, the DCF time code reception is automatically started. This takes typically
between 3-5 minutes in good conditions—but may take up to 4 nights.
IMPORTANT:
•
Transmission problems will arise if the setting for additional transmitters is not
followed as described above. Should transmission problems occur, it is necessary to
remove the batteries from all units and follow the set-up from step 1.
•
If after 10 minutes, the Atomic auto-set time (DCF time) has not been received, press
the SET key to manually enter a time initially.
•
Daily DCF reception is done at 02:00 and 03:00. If the reception at 03:00 is not
successful, then at 04:00 and 05:00 and 06:00 there are other tries, until one is
successful. If the reception at 06:00 is still not successful, then the next try takes
place at 02:00 next day. (Please refer also to notes on “DCF-77 Radio Controlled
Time” and “Manual Time Setting”).

DCF-77 RADIO CONTROLLED TIME:
The time base for the radio controlled time is a Cesium Atomic Clock operated by the
Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig which has a time deviation of less
than one second in one million years. The time is coded and transmitted from Mainflingen
near Frankfurt via frequency signal DCF-77 (77.5 kHz) and has a transmitting range of
approximately 1,500 km. Your radio-controlled Weather (Temperature) station receives this
signal and converts it to show the precise time in summer or wintertime. The quality of the
reception depends greatly on the geographic location. In normal cases, there should be no
reception problems within a 1,500 km radius around Frankfurt.
Once the outdoor temperature is displayed on the station after initial set-up, the DCF tower
icon in the clock display will start flashing in the upper left corner. This indicates that the
clock has detected that there is a radio signal present and is trying to receive it. When the
time code is received, the DCF tower becomes permanently lit and the time will be
displayed.
55
If the tower icon flashes, but does not set the time or the DCF tower does not appear at all,
then please take note of the following:
•
Recommended distance to any interfering sources like computer monitors or TV sets
is a minimum of 1.5 - 2 metres.
•
Within ferro-concrete rooms (basements, superstructures), the received signal is
naturally weakened. In extreme cases, please place the unit close to a window and/or
point its front or back towards the Frankfurt transmitter.

868 MHz RECEPTION
The Temperature Station should receive the temperature data within 5 minutes after set-up.
If the temperature data is not received 5 minutes after setting up (not successfully
continuously, the outdoor display shows “- - -” ), please check the following points:
1.
The distance of the Temperature Station or transmitter should be at least 1.5 to 2
meters away from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid positioning the Temperature Station onto or in the immediate proximity of
metal window frames.
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the
same signal frequency (868MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and
reception.
4.
Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 868MHz signal frequency can
also cause interference.
Note:
When the 868MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either
the transmitter or Temperature Station, as the batteries may spring free from the contacts
and force a false reset. Should this happen accidentally then reset all units (see Setting up
above) otherwise transmission problems may occur.
68
The transmission range is about 100 m from the transmitter to the Temperature Station (in
open space). However, this depends on the surrounding environment and interference
levels. If no reception is possible despite the observation of these factors, all system units
have to be reset (see Setting up).
MOUNTING
POSITIONING THE TEMPERATURE STATION:
The Temperature Station is designed to be hung onto wall or free standing.
To wall mount
Choose a sheltered place. Avoid direct rain and sunshine. Before wall mounting, please
