HOW TO SET UP YOUR STATION:
REGISTER ON HOLFUY WEB:
Please fill the registration form, which you can reach by click on the „ login ” button at the top right button
of any page, then press the „register” button. Or use this link: http://holfuy.hu/en/register.php
Login from
Some hours after the registration we will connect your station with your account in the Holfuy system. We
write an e-mail when it’s done.
SETUP THE STATION'S PAGE:
After logging in you can reach your station's setup page under “My Stations” button. Please fill every field
on the station setup form. Data modification can be done with user password.
MyStations button
INSERT A SIM CARD:
Unscrew the four screws on the top of the box, open it carefully. Insert a PIN code free SIM card to your
station. You can turn off the SIM PIN with any GSM cell phone.
POWER ON THE STATION:
Pull (disconnect) the RED+BLACK jumpers (7) rotate them with 90°, take them back. Now your station is ON
and it starts blinking (with the green and red LEDs).
5
SET THE APN (IF YOUR APN IS PRELOADED GO TO THE NEXT STEP):
If the APN is not preloaded to your station, you will need a mobile phone.
Press the button on the main panel
Reset your station → both LEDs will turn on
Release the button immediately after the LEDs turned off.
Both LEDs will flash 3 times, then they will flash alternately for 3minutes.
Send the following SMS to your station's SIM:
Hstation numberAPN:your apn
e.g: „H102APN:internet”
If the station gets the SMS the alternate flash will stop, and if will try to connect to Holfuy server with the
new APN.
CHECK IF THE STATION IS CONNECTED TO SERVER:
When a station connects to the server it sends a RESTARTED state message. State messages are shown at
the bottom of station's setup page, under the battery voltage graph.
FIX THE ROTOR, VANE:
For the standard sensor:
Place the rotor in the shaft and rotate it with a little angle, then the carbon plate will goes
under the three nubs/pins, and it will be mechanically stable. Put a very little UV light resistant Epoxy/
Super Glue to the connection of the carbon plate and nubs/pins (three points). Be careful the glue
cannot goes to the bearings!
Slide Wind Vane onto carbon shaft and secure with adhesive. Eg.: UV light resistant Epoxy/ Super Glue
Note: Very little glue is required to hold the wind vane in place as this connection is very lightly
stressed.
For the stronger sensor (black): NO GLUE NEEDED
Place the rotor in the metal shaft in the bottom, fix it with an imbus screw (the imbus tool is in
the plastic packet with the screws for mounting). Place the vane int the shaft at the top, fix it with an
imbus screw as well. The small imbus screws are already in the parts.

SOLAR CELL'S DIRECTION:
The best direction for the solar cell is SSE. Choose the marked (black arrow) hole in the mounting arm for
the correct vertical angle.
MOUNTING:
You can mount your station to any mast (2*radius=diameter<5cm). First fix the sensor holder on the mast,
faced to the ideal/main wind direction. After it fix your station, and then finish with the wind speed sensor.
If there is too much cable left you can fix it to the sensor holder. The mounting kit is made from stainless
steel.
SEND THE NULL DIRECTION TO THE SERVER:
Please do the following steps:
Hold the wind vane at north (0°) direction while the process not done.
Press the button on the main panel → both LEDs will turn on.
Release the button immediately after the LEDs turned off.
Both LEDs will flash 3 times, then you can check the new null direction offset at
your station's setup page.
CLOSE THE BOX:
Don’t forget to reconnect the T-Plug (red) from the solar cells before closing the box!
Make sure that the gasket is on its place, and close the box strong with the 4 screws.
The wet air may damage the station!
CHARGING:
If your station gets discharged, and you don’t want to wait till the next sunny day, you can recharge it with
any Micro USB charger (eg. mobile phone chargers).
CHARGE WITH MICRO USB:
Connect the blue jumper to the Charge SW (8).
Connect the USB charger to the Micro USB port (6). Wait till the station voltage goes over 4.13V. You can
monitor your station’s voltage next to your station’s name under MyStations. After it you can disconnect
your charger, and the blue jumper!
Note that you don’t have to wait till 100% voltage, you can stop charging at any time.
After charging don’t forget to disconnect the blue jumper!

ERROR CODES:
1: GSM error:
The controller can’t communicate with the GMS module, when this error occurs please contact us.
2: APN error:
The station can’t connect with the actual APN to the Holfuy server. You can send the right APN with an APN
setter SMS.
3: Empty battery:
The batteries are empty. Wait till some shiny day, or recharge the batteries with a Lithium charger.
4: Weak network strength:
Please select another mobile operator, or contact us for an antenna with better gain.
