The professional wireless weather station is composed of the following features: • Displays the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) WWVB Radio Controlled time and date • Receives and displays weather data, with programmable alarms for certain weather conditions, and records all minimum and maximum values • Indoor/outdoor temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius (user selectable) • Indoor/outdoor relative humidity • Air pressure reading in Hg or hPa • Weather forecast with weather icons and trend indicators • Wind speed and wind direction display with LCD compass • Wind chill temperature display • Heat index temperature display • Dew point temperature display • Time, temperature and storm alarms • Buttons for use: MAX (+), MIN (-), DISPLAY (daily record), CLEAR, PRESSURE SET-UP (on/off/record), ALARM, CHANNEL (off/wave), SNOOZE (alarm off) NIST WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED ATOMIC SIGNAL DESCRIPTION: The National Institute of Standards and Technology government operated WWVB atomic radio signal, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, is the most accurate radio signal, used by television, radio and military for the most split-second time and date information. The time and date display on this weather station is based on the signal provided by the atomic clock in Colorado. GETTING STARTED MOUNTING AND PLACEMENT CONSIDERATIONS: The wireless transmission distance from the thermo-hygrometer sensor and wind speed sensor to the main unit in open space under ideal conditions is 100ft. Although the signal transmission may travel through solid surfaces or objects, Try to place the wireless sensors and main unit in a location with minimal obstructions. The following points should be avoided if possible. • High density of large trees. • High Radio frequency areas. • Low-E Glass. • Thick concrete, stone or brick. • The main unit, thermo-hygrometer and wind speed sensors should not be mounted to metal surfaces as this can reduce range of transmission. • Prior to drilling mounting holes and permanently affixing any of the units, please ensure the main unit con receive the signal from the remote sensors in the desired location. • For best reception of the signal from the atomic clock in Fort Collins, Colorado, place the sensor in a location with a direction towards Colorado. • The WWVB signal will be obtained easiest in the nighttime hours when the signal is the strongest. MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS MAIN UNIT: The included foot mount can be attached to the bottom of the main unit for easy placement on any flat surface. Alternatively, the main unit can be wall mounted in the desired location by using the hang hole on the back of the unit. WIRELESS THERMO-HYGROMEMTER SENSOR: The best place to mount the thermo-hygrometer sensor is in a location out of direct sunlight and protected by extreme weather conditions, such as under the extension of the home roof, under a covered patio or deck. Mount the bracket that the thermo-hygrometer sensor will set in at about eye level by using the four included screws. Once the bracket has been properly affixed in the desired location, place the sensor in the bracket holder. The thermo-hygrometer wireless sensor may also be mounted on a pole; which is outlined in the section “OPTIONAL POLE MOUNTING.” Exit Mount With Arrow Pointing Up MOUNTING THE WIRELESS WIND SPEED AND WIND DIRECTION SENSOR: Before permanently mounting the wind speed bracket, make sure that the wind-fan and wind-vane can rotate freely without any disruption. Also note that the wind speed sensor bracket arm must be pointing north. The wind speed sensor should be positioned to allow the wind to flow around the sensor unhindered from all directions for the most accurate and correct readings. OPTIONAL POLE MOUNTING: Both sensors are designed to mount in two ways, either to flat surfaces like wood posts, or to 3/4” schedule 40 PVC pipe (the outside dimension of the pipe actually measures approximately 1, 1/16”). The pipe mounting method is often referred to in these instructions. The ideal mounting scenario would be for the wireless thermo-hygrometer to be mounted on the north side of the building and for the wind sensor to be mounted well away from the building and high in the air. Please test the wireless signal range before permanently mounting. Since PVC pipe is somewhat flexible, if a tall wind sensor mast is being erected, a larger diameter PVC pipe should be used for the base with a reducer fitting placed at the top. Plastic pipes used for mounting are non-conductive and reduce the likelihood of lightening strikes. BATTERIES (not included) NOTE: Do not install batteries in any of the units until you have read through the initial set-up steps in their entirety. BATTERY TYPE: INDOOR UNIT: “AA” (3) alkaline type batteries can be used for the indoor unit.
