Foreword
WELCOME TO THE GreenStar™ System offered by
John Deere.
Accurately record all the numbers to help in tracing
the components should it be stolen. Your dealer also
needs these numbers when you order parts. File the
identification numbers in a secure place off the machine.
READ THIS MANUAL carefully to learn how to operate and
service your system correctly. Failure to do so could result
in personal injury or equipment damage. This manual and
safety signs on your machine may also be available in
other languages. (See your John Deere dealer to order.)
WARRANTY is provided as part of John Deere's support
program for customers who operate and maintain their
equipment as described in this manual. The warranty is
explained on the warranty certificate which you should
have received from your dealer.
THIS MANUAL SHOULD BE CONSIDERED a permanent
part of your system and should remain with the system
when you sell it.
This warranty provides you the assurance that John
Deere will back its products where defects appear within
the warranty period. In some circumstances, John Deere
also provides field improvements, often without charge
to the customer, even if the product is out of warranty.
Should the equipment be abused, or modified to change
its performance beyond the original factory specifications,
the warranty will become void and field improvements
may be denied.
MEASUREMENTS in this manual are given in both
metric and customary U.S. unit equivalents. Use only
correct replacement parts and fasteners. Metric and inch
fasteners may require a specific metric or inch wrench.
RIGHT-HAND AND LEFT-HAND sides are determined by
facing in the direction of forward travel.
WRITE PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS (P.I.N.)
in the Specification or Identification Numbers section.

Introduction
Theory of Operation
John Deere Mobile Weather is a machine mounted
weather monitoring system that works in conjunction with
the GreenStar™ 2 and GreenStar™ 3 systems. Mobile
Weather monitors and documents weather conditions
without the need for stopping to check prevailing weather
conditions via a hand held device. John Deere Mobile
Weather monitors and documents temperature, Delta T,
humidity, wind speed, and wind direction.
The Mobile Weather Sensor uses ultrasonic sensors to
measure wind speed and direction. The sensors are
capable of measuring a range of wind speeds with a
high level of accuracy. Wind is turbulent and not static.
Changes in wind speed are detected more quickly with
ultrasonic sensing than propeller-type anomometers. As a
result, wind speed values displayed can change frequently.

Viewing Mobile Weather Information
Mobile Weather will display “OK” in the status window
when it is setup and working properly.
Weather information can be viewed on the Application
Controller page or setup and viewed on a home page
section.
Delta T (C) is an indicator for acceptable conditions to
apply product. It indicates evaporation rate and droplet
lifetime. Delta T is calculated by subtracting the wet
bulb temperature from the dry bulb temperature. When
applying, Delta T should be between 2C (4F) and 8C
(14F), and not greater than 10C (18F). A higher Delta T
value will result in a faster evaporation rate and shorter
droplet lifetime.

Troubleshooting
The Mobile Weather Status (A) will display either of the
following:
• OK
• Not Activated
• No Weather Data
If “No Weather Data” is displayed, check the following:
1. Pin Assignment in Ampseal 16 connector.
2. Baud Rate set to 4800.
3. GreenStar harness connected to weather sensor.

Verify there is power to weather sensor.
Verify all connections are tight.
Verify connections are correct.
Verify there are no kinks in the harness.
Verify there are no obstructions in the wind channel
of the Weather Sensor. Keep it free of spider webs,
insects, dirt, and other debris. Be careful not to
puncture the blue waterproof film or scratch the silver
plate.
6. Keep Weather Sensor out of conditions where ice may
become a factor.
If humidity values are not changing or reading zero, the
humidity sensor contained within the weather sensor may

If weather values (B) are not being displayed on the
screen, check to make sure the sensor itself is not cracked
or damaged. If the sensor itself has visible damage, the
sensor may need to be replaced. Check with your local
John Deere Dealer. If there is no visible damage to the
sensor but the weather values are not displayed on the
screen, follow these steps or contact your local John
Deere Dealer for support.

Troubleshooting
Communication Error
Communication with an application’s electronic control
unit has been unexpectedly lost. If reprogramming is not
in process, check the harness connections - disconnect
and reconnect the controller. If the problem persists,
consult the dealer for this controller. The controller can be
identified by the following manufacturer information:
NOTE: No weather values will be displayed or
documented until connection to the Application
Controller is restored.
Sensor Orientation Incorrect
If the plastic nut assembly is tightened with a tool, instead
of hand tightened, it may break or crack. Hand tighten
only. A damaged nut assembly may affect the orientation
of the sensor from facing the front of the machine. If any
part of the plastic nut assembly is cracked or broken,
replace plastic nut assembly.
The steel extension tube that the sensor is mounted
on may loosen over time. A loose extension tube may
affect the orientation of the sensor. Periodically check
that connection between the extension tube and ratchet
assembly are still tight.
PC14095 —UN—05OCT11
The plastic nut assembly on the sensor is hand tightened
and may loosen over time. Periodically check that the
captive nut is still tight and alignment of the sensor is
correct.
Degraded Weather Measurements
Do not expose the sensor to temperatures greater than
65° C (149° F). If sensor has been exposed to temperature
greater than 65° C (149° F) calibration of the sensor may
no longer be accurate.
