BATTERY CHANGE:
User shall replace batteries of the temperature station when the battery low indicator is displayed at the
LCD. If user does not replace batteries, working error may be resulted.
Note:
•
After changing batteries in temperature station, there is no need for user to reset the temperature
station. In fact, the temperature station can remember all transmitter information and sequence as
per the pervious set-up. However, user may require to reset the desired LCD contrast, Alarm On/Off
condition, Calibration value and the Clock (by re-entering the date and time manually or simply wait
for the DCF time signal).
•
The “Average” value display for particular channel will only be calculated from the data after battery
change.
•
It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units on an annual basis to ensure optimum
accuracy of these units.
Please participate in the preservation of the environment. Return used batteries
to an authorized depot.
SETTING UP
1.
Insert batteries into the Temperature station (see “How to install and replace batteries in the
Temperature” above). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly.
Then the indoor temperature and humidity will be displayed. The time will be shown 0:00 and the
date as 1.1.04.
53
Note:
If the indoor temperature and humidity are not displayed after 15 seconds, remove the batteries and wait
for at least 2 minutes before reinserting them. Also check if the battery has been used up. User is
recommended to use new alkaline batteries to the units.
There is a four-minute time for user to set up all transmitters one by one, after inserting batteries to the
temperature station. The below steps 2 to 4 shall be completed within this 4-minute time.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Insert batteries to the first transmitter. The temperature station will start learning the transmitter. The
outdoor Channel 1 (out 1) temperature and humidity readings will then be displayed. User may
observe the outdoor channel icon appear. (If this does not happen after 3 minutes, the batteries will
need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.)
After the readings from the first transmitter (Channel 1) are successfully shown by the temperature
station, insert batteries to the second transmitter. The outdoor “Channel 2” temperature and
humidity readings will then be displayed. User may observe the outdoor channel icon appear.
Set up the third, fourth, and fifth transmitter (if applicable) one by one as described in the above
steps.
Please note that the unit’s built-in memory stores not only saved readings but also any integrated
transmitters on their respective channels. If after you start to use the unit not all transmitters are
being received, you can manually incorporate these one by one as described at
LEARNING/REMOVING A TRANSMITTER.
To free up a used channel for a new transmitter please proceed as described at point 4.
You can also do this for all channels at the same time by returning to the factory settings as
described at CLEARING ALL DATA AND SETTINGS OF THE TEMPERATURE STATION FROM
THE PERMANENT MEMORY.
Please note that this will delete all stored data.
The temperature station will also try to receive the DCF time signal (radio controlled) after the
transmitter signal reception.
54
7.
If after 10 minutes, the DCF time has not been received, press and hold the OK () key for 3
seconds to enter the Set up mode for manual time setting. The clock of the temperature station will
automatically attempt to receive the DCF time at midnight. When this 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 “Radio controlled Time Reception” and “Manual Setting”).
DCF-77 RADIO CONTROLLED TIME
The time base for the radio controlled time is a Cesium Atomic Clock operated by the 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 Temperature
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 1500km radius of Frankfurt.
Once the outdoor reception test period is completed, the DCF tower icon in the clock display will start
flashing in the upper center. 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.
•
During nighttime, the atmospheric disturbances are usually less severe and reception is possible in
most cases. A single daily reception is adequate to keep the accuracy deviation below 1 second.

84
1.
Press and hold the Mode key for 5 second. The maximum and minimum temperature/ humidity
data and the time of record will be reset to the current value.
CLEARING ALL STORED TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY DATA (FROM
TEMPORARY MEMORY OF THE TEMPERATURE STATION)
The on-going temperature and humidity data are stored at the ring buffer memory (a temporary memory
area where the latest data will displace the oldest data once the memory capacity is reached). To clear this
memory, the following step shall be performed:
1.
Press both the Plus key and OK key and hold for about 2 seconds. Only the temperature and
humidity records of all channels (indoor and the outdoor channels) will be cleared. So the average
and history data will no longer exist. The memory display will show “mem 000” after the data has
been cleared.
Note: The maximum/ minimum temperature and humidity data will not be cleared.
CLEARING ALL DATA AND SETTINGS OF THE TEMPERATURE STATION FROM THE
PERMANENT MEMORY (FACTORY RESET)
The factory reset needs to be launched if malfunction on the temperature station occurs.
To reset the temperature station:
1.
Ensure that the unit is in normal display, not displaying max, min, or history. And the unit is
not making any DCF or HF reception.
2.
Press the OK, Plus, Minus and Mode key and hold for 3 seconds in following orders. The OK
key must be pressed and hold first, then the other three key must be pressed and hold also
within 1s. Then hold the four keys for 3 seconds until you see running digits at bottom right
area of LCD.
Note:
If the reset is not successfully initiated, user shall try from above step 1. again
85
Press and hold OK key first
Immediately press these
3 keys at the same time.
Then hold the 4 keys
together for about 3
seconds.
3.
The running digits will be displayed for about 6 minutes, followed by the full segment display. User
is then required to remove and re-insert batteries to complete the restart the unit.
Note: All data in temperature station will be cleared after the factory reset. The permanent memory of the
temperature station will be reset and all the data (of all channels) stored. Also, all the previous settings of
the station including the date and time, alarm, calibration settings will be cleared.
86
The display will show
some running digits
when the temperature
station is reset.
Full segment will be
displayed- user need to
remove and re-insert
batteries to restart the
temperature station.
87
After batteries are re-inserted, the station will automatically launch the learn mode. The signal receipt
indicator will be displayed. User needs to set again the temperature station for the desired application.
(See ”SETTING UP” in previous clause)
Note:
•
•
If the battery level is low, the digits “No EPr” may be displayed on LCD after resetting, indicating that
the power is too low for the temperature station to function normally. In this case, the batteries shall
be replaced.
User is recommended to upload and save all the useful data to PC (if possible) before performing
the factory reset.
USING THE TEMPERATURE STATION WITH PC
With the aid of the software supplied, the temperature station may provide the following additional
functions to user.
1.
Importing data from temperature station to PC
2.
Printing the history file
Procedures to install the software to PC and application of the software are described in the user manual
of the PC software.
ABOUT THE OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER (PURCHASED SEPARATELY)
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 positioning the transmitters. Also
the batteries may be reduced in power for the Temperature transmitter.
88
CHECKING FOR 433MHz RECEPTION
If the outdoor temperature data is not being received within three minutes after setting up (or outdoor
display show “- -. -” in the outdoor section of the Temperature Station after 3 failed attempts during
normal operation), please check the following points:
1.
The distance of the Temperature Station or transmitters should be at least 2 meters away from any
interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid placing the transmitters onto or in the immediate proximity of metal window frames.
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the 433MHz-signal
frequency may prevent correct signal transmission or reception. Neighbors using electrical devices
operating on the 433MHz-signal frequency can also cause interference.
Note:
When the 433MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either the transmitter or
Temperature 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 around 100 meters from the Temperature transmitter to the Temperature 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” above).
89
POSITIONING THE TEMPERATURE STATION:
The Temperature Station provides the option of table standing or wall mounting the unit. Before wall
mounting, please check that the outdoor temperature(s) can be received from the desired location(s). To
wall mount:
1.
Fix a screw (not supplied) into the desired wall, leaving the head extended out
by about 5mm.
2.
away from the base and hang the station onto the screw. Remember to ensure
that it locks into place before releasing.
POSITIONING THE OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER
The Outdoor Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached to a wall with the screws supplied.
To attach to the wall using screws, please follow the steps below:
1.
Mark the wall using a pen through the holes in the holder to
obtain the exact drilling position.
2.
Drill holes in the wall at the points marked.
3.
Screw holder onto wall.
90
The mounting surface can affect the transmission range. If e.g. the unit is attached to a piece of metal, it
may either reduce or increase the transmitting range. For this reason, we recommend not placing the unit
on any metal surfaces or in any position where a large metal or highly polished surface is in the immediate
proximity (garage doors, double glazing etc.). Before securing in place, please ensure that the
Temperature Station can receive the signal from the Outdoor Temperature transmitter at the positions that
you wish to situate them.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Extreme temperatures, vibration and shock should be avoided as these may cause damage to the
units 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 units 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 units. Return it to their original point of purchase for repair
by a qualified engineer. Opening and tampering with the units 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.
