Introduction
Thank you for purchasing this Professional Remote Weather Station.
Designed for everyday use, the weather station will prove to be an
asset of great value for your personal use in the home or office.
Please read this instruction manual thoroughly to fully understand the
correct operation of your weather station and benefit from its unique
features.
2.
Intended Use
Weather Station
The base station measures the indoor environment of its surrounding
area and receives weather data from the following three outdoor
sensors:
1) Thermo-Hygro Sensor
2) Wind Sensor
3) Rain Sensor
The received data is continuously updated to bring you the latest
weather information on the base station’s LCD. The outdoor thermohygro sensor is the main data communication unit since both the wind
and rain sensors are connected to the thermo-hygro sensor for
operating power and rely on it to communicate to the base station.
Weather data sent from the thermo-hygro sensor can be done by
wireless 433MHz transmission (up to 100ft in open space) or by cable
connection.
Using the enclosed 6.5ft computer cable and CD-ROM, you can
install the Heavy Weather software to your PC and access the latest
weather information from your PC and upload up to 175 sets of
recorded weather data received by the base station. Recorded data
can be used to generate statistics and charts onto your spreadsheets
(175 sets of data is stored in the base even if the PC is switched
OFF). The software itself does not set any limits as to how many data
sets can be transferred to PC.
This weather station is designed to work easily with your PC, simply
connect and disconnect the PC cable at any time.

Features of the Thermo-Hygro Sensor
The thermo-hygro sensor measures the outdoor temperature and
relative humidity. It also collects the readings from the rain and wind
sensors before transmitting the data to the base station by wireless
433MHz or by the 32ft cable included in this set.
Features of Wind sensor
The wind sensor measures wind speed and wind direction and sends
the data to thermo-hygro sensor, which in turn transmits the data to
the base station. Operating power is taken from the thermo-hygro
sensor using a 32ft cable connection.
Features of Rain sensor
The rain sensor measures the rainfall and sends the data to thermohygro sensor, which in turn transmits the data to the base station.
Operating power is taken from the thermo-hygro sensor by a 32ft
cable connection.

Setting up
Setting up using batteries:
First, choose to use the adaptor (included in this set) or
batteries for operation. Both these methods allow for
operation using wireless 433MHz transmission or cable
connection between the base station and the sensors and
setting up for both methods is as follows:
Thermo-Hygro Sensor
Sensor sockets
Base Station:
Battery
Compartment
Battery Cover
Socket for
Adaptor
Socket for
Thermo-Hygro
Sensor
PC COM
Port
Sensor sockets
Important:
1)
2)
Battery compartment
3)
4)
To avoid operating problems, please take note of
battery polarity if inserting any batteries
Pull away the rain cover of the thermo-hygro sensor to reveal the
three sockets (for the wind sensor, rain sensor and the base
station)
Connect the attached cables of wind and rain sensors to the
corresponding sockets of the thermo-hygro sensor by clicking
them into place
Open the battery cover of the thermo-hygro sensor located below
the three sockets and insert 2 x AA, IEC LR6, 1.5V batteries and
close the cover
Open the base station’s battery cover located at the back of the
unit and insert 3 x AA, IEC LR6, 1.5V batteries into the battery
compartment and close the battery cover
Setting up using the AC adaptor:
1)
2)
Power up all the sensors as described in setting up using
batteries above
Using the AC adaptor (included), plug it into the mains outlet and
power up the base station by inserting the adaptor jack into the
DC 6.0V socket located on the side of the base station
Every time the thermo-hygro sensor is powered up (for example after
a change of batteries), a random security code is transmitted and this
code must be synchronized with the base station to receive weather
data.
When the base station is powered up, a short beep will sound and all
LCD segments will light up for about 5 seconds before it enters into a
15 minute learning mode to learn the sensors security code. After the
learning mode (or by pressing the MIN/MAX key at anytime), the base
station will start the WWVB radio controlled time reception.
Note for WWVB Radio Controlled Time:
The time and date display is based on the signal provided by the
highly accurate government operated atomic clock in Ft. Collins,
Colorado. This radio-controlled clock does not only provide for the
weather station’s time and date display but also functions as the time
and date source for all of this weather station’s memory and history
values using time and date information.
LCD backlight:
When using the power adaptor, the LCD backlight is switched on
continuously. Under battery operation, the LCD backlight is switched
on for 15 seconds intervals when any key is pressed.
6.
Operation using cable connection or wireless 433MHz
Cable Connection:
Using this method of operation will provide interference free transfer
of the weather data from the sensors to the base station. The data
sending interval from the sensors to the base station will also be more
frequent compared to using 433MHz transmission and will result in
higher power consumption. Therefore batteries will have a shorter life
span for cable connection compared to using 433MHz.
To operate using cable connection, simply use the enclosed 32ft
cable and connect the thermo-hygro sensor to the base station. Once
the connection is detected, the base station will automatically
continue reading the data from the sensor.
The user may at any time switch from cable connection to using
433MHz (or vice versa) by simply disconnecting (or connecting) the
cable from the base station to the sensor. When the base station
detects no cable connection to the sensors the base station will
automatically change to using 433 MHz for reception of the weather
data from the sensors.
The data receiving intervals are as follows:
-Using cable connection data is updated every 8 seconds.
-Using wireless 433 MHz data is updated from 16 to 128 second
intervals depending on wind speed and rain activity.
Using the AC adaptor to operate the base station will also supply
power to the sensor if the cable is connected to it. Batteries used for
433MHz transmission may be left in the sensor when using cable
connection for power back up in case of AC power failure. A loss of
power would desynchronize the base station and the sensor and no
weather data will be received. To Synchronize the units so that the
weather data can be received, press and hold the PLUS (+) key for 2
seconds. However in general, batteries that will not be used for long
periods should be removed to avoid leakage.
Wireless 433MHz transmission:
Using 433MHz wireless transmission of weather data from the sensor
to the base station will provide users greater freedom as to where
units can be positioned without the need to be restricted by cable.
Note:
If no outdoor weather data is displayed or the signal to the sensors is
lost during setting up, mounting, changing of batteries to the sensor or
plugging or unplugging cables, simply press and hold the PLUS (+)
key for 2 seconds and a short beep will sound to synchronize the
base station to sensors. Without being synchronized, weather data
will not be received.

If any readings cannot be received from the sensors, lines (- - -) will
be displayed in the respective weather sections of the LCD. In this
case, check that all cables are correctly inserted into the correct
sockets and/or check the batteries in the outdoor thermo/hygro
sensor and press and hold the PLUS (+) key for 2 seconds and a
short beep will sound to synchronize the base station to the sensors
otherwise no weather data will be received.
Some weather readings such as wind speed and direction may not
appear immediately on the LCD if the wind-fan or vane of the wind
sensor is moved. This is due to the set reading time intervals for the
wind readings. However the current wind speed or direction will be
displayed once the time reading interval is reached. For rainfall, the
interval readings may take up to 2 minutes before the data is
displayed on the LCD.

Mounting
Important Note
Prior to drilling mounting holes and permanently affixing any of the
units, please ensure the following points are considered:
•
Cable lengths of the units meet with your distance requirements
at the point of fixing
•
Signals from the sensors can be received by the base station at
points of mounting
•
Radio controlled time signal can be received at the point of
mounting
NOTE: The WWVB receiver is located in the base station.
Base Station
With two foldable legs at the back of the unit, the base station can be
placed onto any flat surface or wall mounted at the desired location by
the hanging holes also at the back of the unit. It is important to check
that the 433MHz (if using wireless connection) and the WWVB radio
controlled time signal can be received before permanently mounting
any of the units. Should the base station not display the 433MHz
weather data from the sensors or the radio controlled time from the
desired location, then relocate the units. Once the signals are
received, the system can be affixed. Also if you have selected to use
cable connection, ensure that distances can reach all desired
locations before affixing any unit permanently
NOTE: For reception of WWVB time/date signal, do not mount
the base station closer than 5 feet from a computer, florescent
lights or other electrical appliances. Do not mount the base
station on a wall that has metal heat/AC ductwork in the wall
behind the base station. For best WWVB reception place the
base station near a window facing Colorado. WWVB reception
will be obtained easiest in the nighttime hours when the
WWVB signal is strongest.
Firstly, check that the wind-fan and the wind-vane can rotate freely
before fixing the unit. For correct and accurate readings it is
important to mount the sensor so that the front (marked E) is pointing
in East-West direction. The wind sensor should now be mounted
using the screw provided onto a mast to allow the wind to travel
around the sensor unhindered from all directions (ideal mast size
should be from Ø.63” – Ø1.3”).
Once the wind sensor is fixed onto the mast, connect the cable to the
corresponding thermo-hygro sensor socket so that operating power
supply can be received and data can be transmitted to the base
station.

For accurate results, the rain sensor should be securely mounted
onto a horizontal surface about 2-3ft above the ground and in an open
area away from trees or other coverings where rainfall may be
reduced causing inaccurate readings.
When securing into place, check that rain excess will not collect and
store at the base of the unit but can flow out between the base and
the mounting surface (test by pouring clean water).
After mounting the rain sensor, connect the cable to the thermo-hygro
sensor at the corresponding socket so power supply can be received
and data be transmitted to the base station
The rain sensor is now operable. For testing purposes, very slowly
pour a small amount of clean water into the rain sensor funnel. The
water will act as rainfall and will be received and displayed at the
base station after about 2 minutes delay i.e. when the reading interval
is reached (to clear this testing data on the base station, refer to the
section “MIN/MAX Mode” below).

Resetting & factory settings:
As previously mentioned, in the event of a power reset to the sensor
(for example a change of batteries), the base station has to
synchronize to the sensor again otherwise no weather data will be
received. To do this, simply press and hold the PLUS (+) key for 2
seconds and a short beep will sound to synchronize the base station
to the sensor. When the units are synchronized, the data will be
received again and the base station will return to normal operation
mode.
Do not remove batteries or unplug the AC adaptor of the base station
otherwise all 175 sets of recorded weather history data for
transferring to the PC will be lost (for full details of PC use, please see
PC user manual in the enclosed Heavy Weather CD-ROM).
However if you wish to make a full reset of the base station and return
to the original factory settings, simultaneously press and hold the
PRESSURE and WIND keys for about 5 seconds. The base station
will beep once and the entire LCD will light up for 5 seconds and go
back to the original factory settings. This process with clear all
previous user defined values and all weather history recordings.
Factory default settings:
Main Unit
An ideal mounting place for the thermo-hygro sensor would be the
outer wall beneath the extension of a roof, as this will protect the
sensor from direct sunlight and other extreme weather conditions.
To wall mount, use the 2 screws to affix the wall bracket to the
desired wall, plug in the thermo-hygro sensor to the bracket and
secure both parts by the use of the supplied screw and ensure that
the cables from the wind and rain sensors are correctly plugged in
otherwise data transmission errors could occur.
NOTE: For best 433 MHz reception mount the thermo-hygro
sensor on an outside wall near the location of the base station.

Function Description of the Weather Station
After setting up, the following data will be displayed in different
sections on the LCD. If this is not the case please observe the notes
on “Interferences” below.
LCD Section 1:
Time, date, seconds, time zone,
weather forecasting icons with
tendency arrows, air pressure,
and respective alarms sections
LCD Section 2:
Indoor and outdoor temperature and
relative humidity, wind chill, dew
point, rainfall, and respective alarms
sections
LCD Section 3:
Wind direction, wind speed, and
respective alarms sections
Weather forecasting (LCD Section 1)
The three weather icons Sunny, Cloudy and Rainy represent the
weather forecasting. There are also two weather tendency indicators
to show the air pressure tendency either side of the weather icons.
Sunny
Cloudy
Rainy
Notes to hPa sensitivity setting for weather forecasting:
The hPa (Hekto-Pascal) pressure sensitivity can be set to suit the
user’s requirement for weather forecasting from 6 inHg, 9 inHg to 12
inHg (see Basic Programming below). For areas that experience
frequent changes in air pressure (which does not necessarily reflect a
change in the weather) requires a higher inHg setting compared to an
area where the air pressure is stagnant. For example if 6 inHg is
selected, then there must be a fall or rise in air pressure of at least 6
inHg before the weather station will register this as a change in
weather.
Air Pressure (LCD Section 1)
The air pressure reading is displayed here. Press the PRESSURE
key to toggle between relative and absolute air pressure displays.
Notes to Absolute and Relative Air Pressure:
Absolute air pressure provides the display of the true measured air
pressure of the current time and location. This is not programmable
and the absolute air pressure range of the weather station is from
8.85 inHg to 32.45 inHg (standard air pressure at an altitude of
30,000ft is around 8.85 inHg).
Relative air pressure is the one value that is calculated back to sea
level from the local absolute air pressure and can thus be taken as a
reference for weather condition and weather development for the
entire country. It can be programmed to represent your local
surroundings. Since the relative air pressure is also the one value
given by various newspapers, TV and radio broadcasting stations in
their daily weather forecasts for their respective locations, users can
set the relative air pressure of the weather station to this value to
represent readings your their area (see Basic Programming Modes
below).
Weather Data (LCD Section 2)
Indoor temperature and humidity are displayed simultaneously in this
section. Use the DISPLAY key to toggle through the displays for other
weather information:
- Outdoor temperature/humidity
- Outdoor wind chill
- Outdoor dew point
- Rainfall 24h
- Rainfall 1h
- Rainfall total.
Notes to Dewpoint and Windchill:
Air can at a certain temperature only carry a certain amount of water
(water vapor), which also increases and decreases with temperature.
If the air temperature decreases below the dewpoint (saturation
point), the excessive water vapor will condense and fall out in form of
dew, fog or rain. At a temperature of e.g. 59°F and a relative humidity
of 50% the dewpoint will be about 41°F, at 80% humidity about
53.6°F. At a relative humidity of 100% saturation is reached, i.e. the
dewpoint is 59°F. At a dewpoint below freezing the fallout will become
frost or snow.
Windchill has been introduced for battle planning during World War II.
It represents not the real measured but the temperature a person
feels in open area under the influence of wind and cold. Windchill is
laid out in tables for various temperatures and wind speeds. At an
outdoor temperature of e.g. 46.4°F and calm winds a person moving
at a speed of 13 mph will already feel a windchill temperature of 32°F.
Wind Data (LCD Section 3)
The current wind direction will be displayed on the LCD compass on
the wind section. Press the WIND key to toggle between wind
direction as numerical (e.g. 225°) and abbreviated characters (e.g.
SW) as well as numerical wind speed display inside the compass
circle.

MIN/MAX Programming Modes
MIN/MAX display Mode
The MIN/MAX Mode provides the user with information about the
MIN/MAX values of all weather data together with the time and date
at which these values were recorded.
Entering each MIN/MAX mode
In the normal display mode for e.g. the indoor temperature and
humidity, press MIN/MAX key to toggle the display between the
maximum, minimum and current records. While the maximum or
minimum values are shown press the DISPLAY key once to show the
time and date that value was received. Now press the MIN/MAX key
to toggle from the minimum and maximum readings and the time and
dates the records were received are also shown. Still in the MIN/MAX
mode (where the time and date for a value are shown), press the
DISPLAY key to move through each respective unit as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Indoor temperature (max or min with time and date)
Indoor humidity (max or min with time and date)
Outdoor temperature (max or min with time and date)
Outdoor humidity (max or min with time and date)
Outdoor wind chill (max or min with time and date)
Outdoor dew point (max or min with time and date)
Rainfall 24 hours (max or min with time and date)
Rainfall 1 hour (max or min with time and date)
• Rainfall total (max only with time and date)
When in any of the above modes, press the MIN/MAX key to toggle
between the maximum or minimum values of those records and their
respective time and dates will also be shown.
For the wind and pressure minimum and maximum readings, the
same would apply except that the WIND or PRESSURE keys would
be used instead of the DISPLAY KEY.
Exiting the MIN/MAX modes
If the maximum and minimum modes with times and dates are
displayed, press the PLUS (+) key twice to return the normal display
mode.
Resetting the MIN/MAX records
While in the minimum or maximum mode, the time and dates are also
displayed along with the recorded values. If the MINUS (-) key is
pressed while any of these values are displayed, that particular
minimum or maximum record will be reset to current reading together
with the current time and date with the exception of the following:
The first case is Rainfall Total, which has neither maximum nor
minimum records since it will show only the total rainfall. Pressing
the MINUS (-) key will reset the rainfall total value to zero and the
time recording to current time.
The second case is Rainfall 24h or 1h, which records maximum
rain count only for these respective times. Pressing the MINUS () key in either of these two modes will reset the rain count to the
current rain count and time and date.
The third case is wind speed, which will only reset the recorded
time to current time when the MINUS (-) key is pressed.

particular alarm will sound and flash for approximately 2 minutes but
will continue to flash until weather conditions have become more
steady.
Weather Alarms
The weather alarms are settable for when certain weather conditions
are met according to the users requirements. For example, the user
can set the thresholds for the outdoor temperature to +86°F (high)
and 14°F (low), while only enabling the high alarm and disabling the
low alarm (i.e. temperatures <-14°F won’t trigger alarm, but
temperatures >+86°F will).

Hysteresis
To compensate for fluctuation of the measured data, which may
cause the weather alarm to sound constantly if the measured reading
is close to user set level, a hysteresis function has been implemented
for each weather alarm. For example, if the high temperature alarm is
set to +77°F and the current value moves to +78°F, the alarm will be
activated (if it has been enabled). Now when the temperature drops to
+76°F or below and thereafter again increases to beyond +77°F, the
data will be blinking, but no alarm will be activated. It has to drop to
below +75.2°F (with a pre-set hysteresis of 1.8°F) so that the alarm
can be produced again. Hysteresis values for the various weather
data types are given in the following table:

The base station has a memory back up system, which is used to
memorize user-defined settings for when the batteries are changed or
if a power failure occurs. User defined units are automatically updated
each time these are changed. The base station will memorize the
following user defined units:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
17.
When securing the cables during mounting, ensure that base station
can receive the weather data since increasing the cables lengths may
also increase levels of interference and result with reception
difficulties. Interference levels will greatly depend on the surrounding
area for example setting up on or near metal piping may considerably
reduce reception.
For best results, do not to add more than 32ft of extension cable from
item to item onto the existing cable lengths as this may reduce
dispose of batteries in a fire as this may cause explosion,
risk of fire or leakage of dangerous chemicals and fumes
reception levels. Again, reception and interference levels will greatly
depend on the surrounding environment at your point of mounting.
Note:
It is important to keep all the connected extension heads away from
rain, moisture and other extreme weather conditions as exposure can
cause short circuits and damage to this item.

Interferences and problems with operation
Battery change only in the thermo-hygro-sensor:
1. Open the battery cover
2. Remove the old batteries and insert with new ones of the
recommended type and replace the cover
Problem & cause
Distance between
transmitters and
receiver too long.
Remedy
Reduce distance between transmitters
and receiver to receive signal
Once the sensor is powered up, press and hold the PLUS (+) key for
approx. 2 seconds in the normal display mode, the base station will
sound a short beep and synchronize to the sensor otherwise no
weather data will be received.

Find a different location for sensors
and/or receiver. See also Item
‘Transmission Range’ below.
Battery change only in the base station:
1. Connect power adaptor to base station and power outlet.
2. Open the battery cover located at the back of the base station.
3. Remove the old batteries, insert with new ones of the
recommended type and replace the cover
Interference from other
sources (e.g. wireless
radio, headset,
speaker, etc. operating
on the same frequency)
No Reception after
adding extension
cables
Find a different location for the sensors
and/or base station. Neighbors using
electrical devices operating on the
433MHz signal frequency can also
cause interference with reception
Find a new location for the sensors
and/or base station. Recommend not
adding more than 32ft extension
cables between units to the existing
cable lengths, as this will increase the
chance of data reception problems.
Press and hold the PLUS (+) key for 2
seconds to synchronize the base
station to the sensors for weather data
reception. If still no signal, then
change the sensor batteries and
synchronize the units again.
This method of battery replacement will result in no loss of MIN/MAX
and history data. However in case of possible power failure, the base
station will lose the MIX/MAX and all weather data recordings and will
need to be synchronized to the sensors again by pressing the PLUS
(+) key for 2 seconds.
Note:
When batteries require replacement for the base station, the low
battery indicator will light up on the LCD.
Please participate in the preservation of the environment
by properly disposing of all used-up batteries and
accumulators at designated disposal points.
Never

Quite frequently interferences are only of a temporary nature and may
be easily overcome. If there are wireless headsets, remote
babysitters or other devices working on 433MHz in your house or in
the vicinity, their switch-on time is mostly limited. Furthermore most of
these devices allow the change to an interference-free frequency.
Such measures will effectively overcome interferences.
20.
Transmission Range
The transmission distance from the thermo-hygro sensor to the base
station in open space under optimum conditions is 100ft. Although
the signal transmission may travel though solid surfaces or objects,
the following points should be avoided if possible:
-
21.
-
-
High frequency interferences of any kind.
High densities of trees.
Broadband interferences in municipal areas can reach levels
reducing the signal/noise ratio over the entire frequency band,
thus also reducing the transmission distance.
Devices working close by (example a neighbor’s house) may
also influence reception.
Poorly shielded PCs can cause interferences that will reduce or
in some cases stop reception
The transmitter and receiver should not be mounted on metal
surfaces as this will reduce transmission range.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Clean the housing and screen of the base station only with a soft
damp cloth. Do not use abrasives or solvents.
Ensure that the rain sensor does not collect leaves or other dirt
by checking the funnel for blockages every now and then. Also
clean the seesaw of the sensor with a damp cloth and check by
lightly tapping with your finger that it can move freely from side
to side.
Do not clean the funnel with the bottom half of the rain sensor
attached nor the bottom part itself under running water. This
-
22.
may bear the danger of water entering the unit’s inner parts and
cause damages.
Do not immerse the base station in water.
Should there be damage to this product, please do not attempt
to make any repairs. Please take this unit to a qualified
technician. Opening or improper handling of the units will
invalidate any guarantee.
