The Outdoor Temperature Transmitter
•
Remote transmission of outdoor temperature to Weather
Station by 868 MHz
•
Shower proof casing
•
Wall mounting case (Mounting at a sheltered place. Avoid
direct rain and sunshine)
SETTING UP:
When one transmitter is used
1.
First, insert the batteries into the Temperature transmitter. (see “Install and replace
batteries in the Temperature transmitter“).
2.
Immediately after and within 45 seconds, insert the batteries into Weather station
(see “Install and replace batteries in the Weather station”). Once the batteries
are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly. Following the time as 0:00
and the "Weather girl" icon will be displayed. If these are not displayed after 60
seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 10 seconds before reinserting
them.
52
3.
4.
5.
After inserting the batteries, the Weather station will start receiving data from the
transmitter. The outdoor temperature and the signal reception icon should then be
displayed on the Weather station. If this does not happen after 3 minutes, the
batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.
In order to ensure sufficient 868 MHz transmission however, this should under good
conditions be a distance no more than 100 meters between the final position of the
Weather Station and the transmitter (see notes on “Positioning” and “868 MHz
Reception”).
Once the remote temperature has been received and displayed on the Weather
station, the DCF time (radio controlled time) code reception is automatically started.
This takes typically between 3-5 minutes in good conditions. If after 10 minutes, the
DCF time has not been received, press the SET key to manually enter a time
initially.
When more than one transmitter is used
1.
User shall remove all the batteries from the weather station and transmitters and wait
for 60 seconds if setting has been done with one transmitter before.
2.
Insert the batteries to the first transmitter.
3.
Within 25 seconds of powering up the first transmitter, insert the batteries to the
Weather Station. Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up
briefly. Following time as 0:00 and the weather girl icon will be displayed. If they are
not shown in LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 60
seconds before reinserting them.
53
4.
5.
The outdoor temperature from the first transmitter (channel 1) should then be
displayed on the Weather station. Also, the signal reception icon will be displayed. If
this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both
units and reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries to the second transmitter as soon as the outdoor temperature
readings from the first transmitter are displayed on the Weather station.
Note: User shall insert the batteries into the second transmitter within 10 seconds of
reception of the first transmitter.
6.
7.
The outdoor data from the second transmitter and the "channel 2" icon should then be
displayed on the Weather station. If this does not happen after 2 minute, the batteries
will need to be removed from all the units and reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries to the third transmitter as soon as the "channel 2" icon and outdoor
data are displayed on the Weather station. Then within 2 minutes, the channel 3
outdoor data from the third transmitter will be displayed and the channel icon will shift
back to "1" once the third transmitter is successfully received. If this is not happen,
user shall restart the setting up from step 1.
Note:
User shall insert the batteries into the third transmitter within 10 seconds of reception of
the second transmitter.
• And user may require to check the displayed readings on the weather station against
•
54
those shown on the transmitters in order to recognise the Channel No. of each
transmitter.
8.
In order to ensure sufficient 868 MHz transmission however, this should under good
conditions be a distance no more than 100 meters between the final position of the
Weather Station and the transmitter (see notes on “Positioning” and “868 MHz
Reception”).
IMPORTANT:
Transmission problems will arise if the setting for additional sensors is not followed as
described above. Should transmission problems occur, it is necessary to remove the
batteries from all units and start again the set-up from step 1.
9.
Once the remote temperature has been received and displayed on the Weather
station, the DCF time (radio controlled time) code reception is automatically started.
This takes typically between 3-5 minutes in good conditions.
If after 10 minutes, the DCF time has not been received, press the SET key to manually
enter a time initially.
Note:
Daily DCF reception is done at 02:00 and 03:00 every day. If the reception at 03:00 is not
successful, then at 04:00 and 05:00 and 06:00 there are other tries, until one is successful. If
55
the reception at 06:00 is still not successful, then the next try takes place at 02:00 next day.
If reception is successful, the received time will override the manually set time. The date is
also updated with the received time. (Please refer also to notes on “DCF-77 Radio
Controlled time” and “Manual Time Setting”)

Note:
In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be reset by following
the setting up procedures. This is because a random security code is assigned by the
transmitter at start-up and this code must be received and stored by the Weather station in
the first 3 minutes of power being supplied to it.
BATTERY CHANGE:
It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units regularly to ensure optimum accuracy
of these units (Battery life See Specifications below).
Please participate in the preservation of the environment. Return used
batteries to an authorised depot.

DCF-77 RADIO CONTROLLED TIME:
The time base for the radio controlled time is a Cesium Atomic Clock operated by the
63
Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig which has a time deviation of less
than one second in one million years. The time is coded and transmitted from Mainflingen
near Frankfurt via frequency signal DCF-77 (77.5 kHz) and has a transmitting range of
approximately 1,500 km. Your radio-controlled Weather Station receives this signal and
converts it to show the precise time in summer or wintertime. The quality of the reception
depends greatly on the geographic location. In normal cases, there should be no reception
problems within a 1,500 km radius around Frankfurt.
Once the outdoor temperature is displayed on the Weather Station after initial set-up, the
DCF tower icon in the clock display will start flashing in the upper left corner. This indicates
that the clock has detected that there is a radio signal present and is trying to receive it.
When the time code is received, the DCF tower becomes permanently lit and the time will be
displayed.
If the tower icon flashes, but does not set the time or the DCF tower does not appear at all,
then please take note of the following :
•
Recommended distance to any interfering sources like computer monitors or TV sets
is a minimum of 1.5 - 2 meters.
•
Within ferro-concrete rooms (basements, superstructures), the received signal is
naturally weakened. In extreme cases, please place the unit close to a window and/or
point its front or back towards the Frankfurt transmitter.

WEATHER FORECAST AND TENDENCY:
The weather forecast icons (Weather girl):
One of the 15 different weather icons (featured by Weather girl with different clothing) is
displayed in the centre of LCD, which indicates the different forecast weather condition due
to air pressure level (Sunny, Sunny + Cloudy or Cloudy + Rainy) and the current outdoor
temperature (Temperature value detected by Channel 1):
≥ 26°°C
19 – 25.9°°C
10 – 18.9°°C
Sunny
78
0 – 9.9°°C
< 0°°C

19 – 25.9°°C
10 – 18.9°°C
0 – 9.9°°C
< 0°°C
Sunny +
Cloudy
Cloudy +
Rainy
79
For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather icons will update
accordingly to represent the change in weather. If the icons do not change, then it means
either the air pressure has not changed or the change has been too slow for the Weather
Projection Station to register. 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.
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 12-24
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 Station has been designed for use in. In areas that experience sudden
changes in weather (for example from sunny to rain), the Weather Station will be more
accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is stagnant most of the time (for
example mostly sunny).
80
If the Weather Station 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), remove the
batteries and re-insert them after about 30 seconds. By doing this, the Weather Station will
not mistake the new location as being a possible change in air-pressure when really it is due
to the slight change of altitude. Again, disregard weather forecasts for the next 12 to 24
hours as this will allow time for operation at a constant altitude.
THE WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
Working together with the weather icons are the weather tendency indicators (the upward
and downward arrow located near the Weather girl). 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.
Therefore, user may see how the weather has changed and is expected to change. For
example, if the indicator is pointing downwards together with cloudy icons, it means that the
last noticeable change in the weather was when it was sunny (the sunny icon only).
Therefore, the next change in the weather will be the cloudy 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.

LED BACK-LIGHT
The LED back-light will be automatically switched ON when any key is pressed. The LED
back-light will be switched on for approximately 9 seconds before automatically switching
OFF.
TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER:
The range of the Temperature transmitter may be affected by the temperature. At cold
temperatures the transmitting distance may be decreased. Please bear this in mind when
placing the transmitter.
868 MHz RECEPTION
The Weather Station should receive the temperature data within 5 minutes after set-up. If
the temperature data is not received 5 minutes after setting up (not successfully 3 times
continuously, the outdoor display shows “- - -” ), please check the following points:
1.
The distance of the Weather Station or transmitter should be at least 1.5 to 2 meters
away from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid positioning the Weather Station onto or in the immediate proximity of metal
window frames.
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the
same signal frequency (868MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and
reception.
4.
Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 868MHz signal frequency can
also cause interference.
88
Note:
When the 868MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either the
transmitter or Weather Station, as the batteries may spring free from the contacts and force
a false reset. Should this happen accidentally then reset all units (see Setting up above)
otherwise transmission problems may occur.
The transmission range is about 100 m from the transmitter to the Weather Station (in open
space). However, this depends on the surrounding environment and interference levels. If no
reception is possible despite the observation of these factors, all system units have to be
reset (see Setting up).
POSITIONING
WEATHER STATION:
The Weather Station comes complete with a foldout stand that gives the
option of table standing or wall mounting.
To wall mount:
1.
Fix a screw into the desired wall, leaving the head extended out
the by about 5mm.
2.
Using the Weather Station’s hanging hole, carefully hang it onto
the screw.
Note: Always ensures that the unit locks onto the screw head before
releasing.
89
POSITIONING THE TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER:
The Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached to a
wall with the two screws supplied. The Transmitter can also be
position on a flat surface by securing the stand to the bottom to the
Transmitter.
To wall mount:
1. Secure the bracket onto a desired wall using the screws and
plastic anchors.
2. Clip the remote temperature sensor onto the bracket.
90
Note:
Before permanently fixing the transmitter wall base, place all units in the desired locations to
check that the outdoor temperature reading is receivable. In event that the signal is not
received, relocate the transmitters or move them slightly as this may help the signal
reception.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE :
•
•
•
•
•
•
Extreme temperatures, vibration and shock should be avoided as these may cause
damage to the unit and give inaccurate forecasts and readings.
When cleaning the display and casings, use a soft damp cloth only. Do not use
solvents or scouring agents as they may mark the LCD and casings.
Do not submerge the unit in water.
Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and damage. Replace
only with new batteries of the recommended type.
Do not make any repair attempts to the unit. Return them to their original point of
purchase for repair by a qualified engineer. Opening and tampering with the unit may
invalidate their guarantee.
Do not expose the units to extreme and sudden temperature changes, this may lead
to rapid changes in forecasts and readings and thereby reduce their accuracy.
