SETTING UP:
IMPORTANT: Make sure to observe the correct polarity when inserting batteries. The
"+" markings on the batteries must line up with the diagrams inside the battery
compartments. Inserting the batteries incorrectly may result in permanent damage
to the units. During the setup process, place the wireless display and the outdoor
sensors on a surface with 1-3 meters between the sensors and the display. Only use
Alkaline Batteries for the Wireless Display and Thermo-hygro sensor,
rechargeable batteries may not work.
1. It is important to allow sufficient light to reach the Press Reset Button on Bottom
of the Wind Sensor (Solar
solar panel while activating the wind sensor.
Panel Must Face Light)
Make sure the lights are on in the setup room
and the solar panel is facing a 60W light bulb or
brighter - do not cover with hands or other
objects. Remove the black protective foil on the
solar panel and use the provided plastic reset rod
to gently press the reset button once in the hole
on the bottom of the sensor.
2. Twist open the top of the solar rain sensor. Remove the securing tape from the
seesaw and the black protective cover from the solar panel. Swing the seesaw
once to ‘wake-up’ the rain sensor. The solar rain sensor should then be placed
under a bright environment in order to charge up the rechargeable batteries.
IMPORTANT: Completely reset the rain sensor:
a. Unscrew the battery cover on bottom of the rain sensor and remove the
rechargeable batteries
Unscrew Battery

f. Place the solar rain senor under bright environment to charge-up the
rechargeable batteries.
3. Insert two "C" size batteries into the thermo-hygro sensor with the correct polarity.
4. Insert three "C" size batteries into the wireless display with the correct polarity.
NOTE: Every time the wireless display receives data from the sensors, the
wireless icons will blink once and then return to solid if the last transmission
was successful. A wind speed or rainfall amount that reads "0" does not mean
reception failure, it means that there was no wind or rain at the time of the last
measurement. The thermo-hygro sensor syncs with the wind and rain sensors
and sends all outdoor sensor data to the display. The thermo-hygro sensor tries
for 7 minutes to sync to the wind sensor and for the rain sensor. If not successful
within 7 minutes, the thermo-hygro sensor will stop looking for the other sensors.
5. Setup troubleshooting: If the sensor data fails to display for any of the outdoor
sensors within 10 minutes, (“- - -“ is displayed), remove the batteries from all
units (except for the Wind Sensor) for 1 minute and start the Setup procedure
again at Step 1 and completely reset the solar Rain Sensor (see Step 2:
Important).
ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR THE SOLAR WIND AND RAIN SENSORS MODES:
IDLE MODE
This mode aims to reduce the power consumption of the transmitter. Under this mode,
the sensor stops the transmission of signal, checks the battery voltage and detects the
solar cell condition. The IDLE mode happens if the battery voltage is low.
Note: The sensor will check and charge up the rechargeable battery automatically.
When it detects that the battery voltage is sufficiently charged up and high enough, the
transmission of signal starts again.
STOP MODE
It is the most energy saving mode. Under this mode, the transmitter stops the
transmission of signal. There is no checking of the battery voltage and no detection of
the solar cell condition. The STOP mode happens:
•
•
If the user covers the solar cell for 10 seconds and presses the RESET
button (Wind Sensor).
If the sensor(s) is(are) placed in the dark environment for 72 hours.
Note:
•
•
To restart the Solar Wind sensor, user should spin the wind cups or place
the sensor in a bright environment, then press the RESET button once to
wake it up again.
To restart the Solar Rain Sensor, should swing the seesaw or, follow the
SETTING UP, Step 2: Important instructions to completely reset the sensor.
IMPORTANT! During the restart process, if the battery voltage is sufficiently high
enough, the transmission of signal starts again. However, if the battery voltage is low,
42
the sensor(s) enters the IDLE mode. User should place the sensor(s) under a bright
environment in order to charge up the rechargeable batteries.
MOUNTING THE SENSORS AND PLACEMENT OF THE WIRELESS DISPLAY:
IMPORTANT: Ensure that all of the sensor data can be received at the intended
mounting locations before you drill mounting holes. The outdoor sensors have a
wireless range of 50 meters. Keep in mind that the 50 meters range equates to an
open air scenario with no obstructions. Each obstruction (roof, walls, floors, ceilings,
etc.) will reduce the range.

* Wind and Rain Sensors should be located on
the same side of the house as the Thermohygro Sensor to ensure the signal strength
The thermo-hygro sensor measures outdoor temperature & humidity and collects the
data from the wind and the rain sensors and sends all outdoor weather data to the
wireless display, so the thermo-hygro sensor must be within the 100 meters wireless
range of the wireless display. This allows the wind and rain sensors to be placed
relative to the thermo-hygro sensor rather than the wireless display. See Wireless Data
Diagram above.
•
•
The wind and rain sensors must be mounted within the 50 meters wireless range of
the thermo-hygro sensor and on the same side of the house.
The wireless display must be within the 25 meters wireless range of the USB
transceiver to send weather data to the PC.
If the sensor wireless icons drop from the display as you move them into their
intended locations, the sensors may be too far from the wireless display. Try moving
the wireless display or the sensors closer and wait a few minutes to see if the wireless
icons display again. If the wireless icons are still not displayed after re-positioning
43
the sensors or the wireless display, press and hold the ▲UP ARROW key for 2 seconds
to re-synchronize the wireless display with the sensors.
WIND SENSOR
The wind sensor must be installed with the front of the sensor (the solar panel)
facing true South, or the reported wind direction will not be accurate. Mount within the
50 meters wireless range of the thermo-hygro sensor and on the same side of the
house. The roof may or may not be an ideal mounting location. Secure the main unit to
the shaft of the mast holder. Use the right-angle adaptor if the wind sensor will be
mounted on a horizontal mast or surface.
Fasten the wind sensor to a suitable mast using the two U-bolts, washers and nuts
included. Note: Mount the wind sensor onto a mast so the wind can reach the sensor
unobstructed from all directions for an accurate reading. The ideal mast is between
15.75mm and 33mm in diameter. The wind sensor DOES NOT have replaceable
batteries, it consumes solar power and charges the internal battery pack automatically.
RAIN SENSOR
The rain sensor should be mounted on a level surface in an open area and bright area
within the 50 meters wireless range of the thermo-hygro sensor and on the same side
of the house. Mount the rain sensor at least 0.30 meter off the ground level for optimum
wireless transmission. The rain sensor should be accessible to allow for period cleaning
of debris or insects.
THERMO-HYGRO SENSOR
The thermo-hygro sensor is "weather resistant", but not "water proof". To ensure an
extended life of your sensor, mount it in a semi-covered place out of the elements. An
ideal location for the thermo-hygro sensor is under the eaves on the North side of the
house to avoid the effects of sunlight. Mount the sensor 0.5 meter down from the eaves
to ensure optimum performance. This way the weather data collected by the sensor will
not be affected by the temperature of the air coming out of the attic.
To wall mount the thermo-hygro sensor, fix the wall holder onto the desired wall using
the included screws, plug the sensor firmly into the wall holder and replace the rain
cover if it is not already in place. Note: After mounting the units, if the weather data is
not received, press and hold the ▲UP ARROW key for 2 seconds to synchronize the
wireless display to the sensors.
HEAVY WEATHER PC SOFTWARE
Use your PC to store and graph the latest weather data collected by the weather station.
Download the Heavy Weather PC software from www.tfa-dostmann.de.
The Heavy Weather Pro User's Guide available on the download page details the
computer requirements, installation and usage instructions.

WEATHER ALARM OPERATIONS
The Weather alarms can be set when certain weather conditions are met according to
your requirements. For example, you can set the thresholds for the outdoor temperature
to +40°C (high) and -10°C (low), while enabling the high alarm and disabling the low
alarm (i.e. temperatures <-10°C won’t trigger alarm, but temperatures >+40°C will).
•
If the value meets the condition for high alarm or low alarm, the buzzer will ring for 2
minutes and the value will blink, along with the corresponding icon ("HI AL"/ "LO AL").
•
Press any key to stop a ringing alarm.
•
The high and low alarms can be switched On/Off independently, according to your
needs.

HYSTERESIS
To compensate for fluctuation of the measured data, which may cause the weather
alarm to sound constantly if the measured reading is Weather data Hysteresis
close to your set level, a hysteresis function has
Temperature
1°C
been implemented for each weather alarm. For
Humidity
3% RH
example, if the high temperature alarm is set to
Pressure
1 hPa
+25°C and the current value moves to +25°C, the
Wind speed
10 km/h
alarm will be activated (if it has been enabled).
Now when the temperature drops to +24.88°C or below and thereafter again increases
to beyond +25°C, the data will be blinking, but no alarm will be activated. It has to drop
to below +24°C (with a pre-set hysteresis of 1°C) so that the alarm can be produced
again. Hysteresis values for the various weather data types are given in the table.
Note: The temperature or humidity data will keep flashing even after a key has been
pressed to stop the alarm has been switched off to indicate that the current weather
condition is out of the pre-set limit(s)
WEATHER FORECAST AND WEATHER TENDENCY
WEATHER FORECASTING ICONS:
Weather forecasting icons are displayed in any of the following combinations:
Sunny
Cloudy with sunny intervals
Rainy
For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather icons will update
accordingly to represent the change in weather.
(Every time a new average pressure value has been obtained (once per minute), this
value is compared with an internal reference value. If the difference between these
values is bigger than the selected weather tendency sensitivity, the weather-icon
changes, either for worse or for better. In this case, the current pressure value becomes
the new weather tendency reference.)
If the icons do not change, either the air pressure has not changed or the change has
been too small for the Weather Center to register. So you may adjust the "sensitivity" of
the pressure change checking in the setting mode –see WEATHER TENDENCY
SENSITIVITY VALUE SETTING above.
However, if the icon displayed is a sun or raining cloud, there will be no change of icon if
the weather gets any better (with sunny icon) or worse (with rainy icon) since the icons
are already at their extremes.
60
The icons displayed forecasts the weather in terms of getting better or worse and not
necessarily sunny or rainy as each icon indicates. For example, if the current weather is
cloudy and the rainy icon is displayed, it does not mean that the product is faulty
because it is not raining. It simply means that the air pressure has dropped and the
weather is expected to get worse but not necessarily rainy.
Note: After setting up, readings for weather forecasts should be disregarded for the
next 48-60 hours. This will allow sufficient time for the Weather station to collect air
pressure data at a constant altitude and therefore result in a more accurate forecast.
Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed. The weather
forecasting feature is estimated to have an accuracy level of about 75% due to the
varying areas the Weather Center has been designed for use. In areas that experience
sudden changes in weather (for example from sunny to rain), the Weather Center will
be more accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is stagnant most of the
time (for example mostly sunny).
If the Weather Center is moved to another location significantly higher or lower than its
initial standing point (for example from the ground floor to the upper floors of a house),
discard the weather forecast for the next 48-60 hours, as the Weather Center may
mistake the new location as being a possible change in air-pressure when really it is
due to the slight change of altitude.
WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
Working together with the weather icons is the weather tendency indicators (arrow
located on the left and right sides of the weather icons). When the indicator points
upwards, it means that the air-pressure is increasing and the weather is expected to
improve, but when indicator points downwards, the air-pressure is dropping and the
weather is expected to become worse.
Taking this into account, one can see how the weather has changed and is expected to
change. For example, if the indicator is pointing downwards together with cloud and sun
icons, then the last noticeable change in the weather was when it was sunny (the sun
icon only). Therefore, the next change in the weather will be cloud with rain icons since
the indicator is pointing downwards.
Note: Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air pressure,
it will remain permanently visualized on the LCD.
AIR PRESSURE HISTORY (ELECTRONIC BAROMETER WITH BAROMETRIC
PRESSURE TREND)
The LCD also shows the relative air pressure value and the air pressure history.
Press the SET key to toggle between Mode1 and Mode2 of the display.
•
Mode 1: the bar graph displays the air pressure history of the past 24 hours in
seven steps. The horizontal axis represents the last 24 hours of air pressure
recording (-24, -18, -12, -9, -6, -3 and 0 hour).
61
•
Mode 2: the bar graph displays the air pressure history of the past 72 hours in
seven steps. The horizontal axis represents the last 72 hours of air pressure
recording (-72, -48, -36, -24, -12, -6 and 0 hour).
The vertical bars are plotted at each of the nine steps and give the trend over the
recorded period. The 0 hour vertical bar will always display at the midline height to
indicate the current air pressure. The varying height of bars inn other columns on the
graph indicate a relative change in air pressure up or down from the previous
measurement.
New pressure measurements are compared to previously recorded pressure
measurements. The pressure change is expressed by the difference between the
current ("0h") and the past readings in divisions of ±0.06 inHg or ±2 hPa. If the bars are
rising from left to right, this indicates that the weather is getting better due to an
increase in air pressure. If the bars are falling from left to right, this indicates that the
weather is expected to get worse due to a drop in air pressure.
At every full hour, the current air pressure is used as a basis for the display of a new
graph bar. The existing graph is then moved one column to the left.
Note: For accurate barometric pressure trend, the Weather Center should operate at
the same altitude. For example, it should not be moved. Should the unit be moved, for
instance from the ground to the second floor of the house, the readings for the next 4860 hours shall be discarded.
Note: The bar graph will scroll right to left regularly to prevent LCD burnout.
WIND DIRECTION AND WIND SPEED MEASUREMENT
•
The current wind direction is indicated by a pointer on the outer circle of the
compass.
•
The last 6 wind directions are displayed with pointers on the inner circle.
