Have the indoor temperature station and remote temperature sensor 3 to 5 feet apart. 2. Batteries should be out of both units for 10 minutes. 3. Place the batteries into the remote temperature sensor first then into the indoor temperature station. (All remote temperature sensors must be started before the indoor temperature station) 4. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS FOR 10 MINUTES. In this time the indoor temperature station and remote temperature sensor will start to talk to each other and the display will show both the indoor temperature and an outdoor temperature. If the indoor temperature station does not display both temperatures after the 10 minutes please retry the set up as stated above. After both indoor and outdoor temperatures are displayed for 10 minutes you can place your remote temperature sensor outdoors and set your time. The remote temperature sensor should be placed in a dry, shaded area. The remote temperature sensor has a range of 80 feet. Any walls that the signal will have to pass through will reduce distance. An outdoor wall or window will have 20 to 30 feet of resistance and an interior wall will have 10 to 20 feet of resistance. Your distance plus resistance should not exceed 80 ft. in a straight line. NOTE: Fog and mist will not harm your remote temperature sensor but direct rain must be avoided. To complete the set up of your indoor temperature station after the 10 minutes have passed please follow the steps on pages 8-9. INVENTORY OF CONTENTS 1. The indoor temperature station (Figure 1) 2.

Install 2 AA batteries in the remote temperature sensor. Make sure they do not spring free, or start-up problems may occur. Install 2 AAA batteries in the indoor temperature station. Do not press any buttons for at least ten minutes. 2. Battery Cover Setting the Time 1. Press and hold the “SET” button for 5 second, “12h” will appear in the TIME LCD. 2. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button to select either 12h time (am/pm) or 24h time 3. Press and release the “SET” button 2 times, the hour will flash in the upper left corner. 4. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button to set the hours 5. Press and release the “SET” button to move to the minute setting 6. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button to set the minutes. 7. Press and release the “SET” button to activate the clock. Note: When in 12h mode, there is only a “PM” display, which appears under “TIME.” If there is no display here it is AM. Make sure you set the time accordingly. Selecting Units of Measurement 1. Press and hold the “SET” button for 5 second until “12h” or “24h” appears in the TIME LCD. 2. Press and release the “SET” button again, “°F” will appear in the TIME LCD. 3. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button to shift between °F and °C. 4. Press and release the “SET” button twice to activate settings. FEATURES Minimum and Maximum Temperatures 1. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button, “MIN” appears next to the indoor and remote temperatures. 2. The recorded minimum temperature is displayed. The time of the minimum outdoor temperature will also flash. 3. Press the “MIN/MAX” button, “MAX” appears next to the indoor and remote temperatures. 4. The recorded maximum temperature is displayed. The time of the maximum outdoor temperature will also flash. 5. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button to exit min/max mode. 6. To view optional additional sensors, press and release the “SET” button while viewing the minimum or maximum. Resetting Min and Max Temperatures To reset both the minimum and maximum temperatures—press and hold the “RESET/+” button for 4 seconds. Adding Additional Remote Temperature Sensors (optional) The WS-7034U is able to receive signals from 3 different remote temperature sensors. Following are some brief instructions for the basic set-up of remote temperature sensor units with the WS-7034U. These extra remote temperature sensors can be purchased through the same dealer as this unit, or by contacting La Crosse Technology directly. A TX6U will monitor temperature only, a TX3U will monitor temperature and display the temperature on its LCD, and the TX3UP will monitor the temperature of water or soil via a probe. When setting up multiple remote temperature sensors, it is important to remove the batteries from all existing units in operation, then to insert batteries first into all the remote temperature sensors. Second install batteries into the indoor temperature station and do not press any buttons for ten minutes. Transmission problems will arise if this is not done correctly. To view the temperature of a different remote temperature sensor unit, press and release the “SET/CH” button. A shift from one number to the next should be observed in the OUTDOOR LCD. MOUNTING Note: To achieve a true temperature reading, avoid mounting in direct sunlight. We recommend that you mount the remote temperature sensor on a North-facing wall. The sending range is 80ft; obstacles such as walls, concrete, and large metal objects will reduce the range. Place both units in their desired location before permanently mounting. Remote Temperature Sensor 1. 2. 3. Remove the mounting bracket from the remote temperature sensor. Mount the bracket in the desired location with either screws or adhesive tape. Reattach the remote temperature sensor into mounting bracket. Indoor Temperature Station The indoor temperature station comes with the table stand already mounted. If you wish to use the table-stand all that is required is to place the indoor temperature station in an appropriate location. 1. 2. 3. To wall mount the indoor temperature station first remove the table stand. Next insert an appropriate screw in your desired location. Using the integrated hanging hole on the back of the unit, slip indoor temperature station over the screw and pull down to secure. TROUBLESHOOTING NOTE: For problems not solved, please contact La Crosse Technology via e-mail or phone, or visit our website, www.lacrossetechnology.com Problem: The LCD is faint Solution: Replace batteries Problem: No outdoor temperature is displayed. Solution: 1. Remove all batteries, reinsert into remote temperature sensor first, then into the indoor temperature station. 2. Place remote temperature sensor closer to the indoor temperature station. 3. Be sure all batteries are fresh. 4. Place remote temperature sensor and indoor temperature station in position so the straight-line signal is not passing through more than two or three walls. Problem: Temperatures do not match if units are placed next to each other. Solution: Each temperature sensor is manufactured to be accurate to within 1 degree plus or minus and under normal conditions, so two sensors could be as much as 2 degrees different. However, the difference can be exaggerated further because the sensors are designed for different working environments. The indoor sensor is less responsive to ambient air currents because of the shielding effect of the display's case. In addition, the case can act as a heat sink to absorb and store heat from external sources (i.e. handling of the case or radiant heat). Also, the much greater range of the outdoor temperature sensor requires a different calibration curve than the indoor range. Error is usually greater at the extreme ends of a range, making it harder to compare different ranges with different curves. Under non-laboratory conditions, it is difficult to compensate for the above factors and obtain an accurate comparison. MAINTENANCE AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS • • • • • Extreme temperatures, vibration, and shock should be avoided to prevent damage to the units. Clean displays and units with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use solvents or scouring agents; they may mark the displays and casings. Do not submerge in water. Do not subject the units to unnecessary heat or cold by placing them in the oven or freezer. Opening the casings invalidates the warranty. Do not try to repair the unit. Contact La Crosse Technology repairs.
