CHOOSING A MOUNTING
LOCATION
Choose locations for the thermometer
and the attached outdoor sensor within
10 feet of each other, where you can easily route the outdoor sensor’s cord outside (near a window, for example).
You can place the thermometer on a level surface (such as a desktop or counter)
using the supplied stand, or you can
mount it on a wall.
For the best mounting results, attach the
thermometer and outdoor sensor on dry
wall or wood surfaces. Avoid mounting either on ceramic tile or metal surfaces.
The most common way to route the outdoor sensor’s cord is through a corner or
depression in a window sill or door edge.
Preparation

63-1032.fm Page 8 Thursday, June 22, 2000 11:29 AM
You can also use a pass-through tube to
route the cord through a wall.
Cautions:
• The outdoor sensor is permanently
attached to the thermometer. Do not
try to remove it.
• Avoid routing the outdoor sensor’s
cord where it could be pinched or
cut.
Note: Keep the thermometer and outdoor
sensor away from artificial sources of
heat or cold such as stoves, heating
vents, radiators, and direct sunlight.
Attaching the Stand
1. Flip up the two tabs on the stand.

on the thermometer’s base until they
snap into place.
Note: Make sure the flat side of the base
faces the front of the thermometer.
To remove the stand, gently pull it away
from the unit.

The thermometer automatically displays
the outdoor temperature (OUT) in the first
line and the indoor temperature (IN) in
the second line.
Note: If the outdoor temperature rises
above 158°F (70°C) or falls below –58°F
(–50°C), the thermometer displays HHH
or LLL in the first line.
Changing the Degree Format
You can view the temperature in Fahrenheit (°F) or Celsius (°C) format.

To change the degree format, repeatedly
press °C/°F on the back of the thermometer to toggle to the desired degree format.
INDOOR HUMIDITY
The thermometer automatically displays
indoor humidity in the third line.
When the indoor relative humidity rises
above 70%, WET appears, indicating excess moisture in the air.
When the indoor relative humidity falls
below 40%, DRY appears, indicating low
moisture in the air.
MAXIMUM/MINIMUM
MEMORY
The thermometer automatically stores
the lowest and highest outdoor/indoor
