First, insert the batteries into the Weather station (see “How to install and replace batteries in the
Weather station” below). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a
short signal tone will sound. Following some test data display, the indoor temperature and humidity, the time
as 0:00 the date as 1.1. and the weather icons sun and clouds will be displayed. If the indoor temperature
and humidity are not displayed after 30 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 10 seconds
before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed proceed to step 2.
Within 3 minutes of activating the Weather station, place the batteries into the transmitter (see “How to
install and replace batteries in the Thermo-Hygro outdoor transmitter“ below).
After inserting the batteries into the transmitter, the Weather station will start receiving data from the
transmitter. The outdoor temperature and humidity should then be displayed on the Weather station. If this
does not happen after 15 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step
1.
The Weather station can take up to 3 remote transmitters. If you have purchased additional transmitters,
follow step 2 for all extra transmitters. However, ensure that you leave 10 seconds in between the reception
of the last transmitter and the set-up of the following transmitter. The Weather station will number the
transmitters in the order of set-up, i.e. the first transmitter will have the temperature displayed with the
number 1 against it and so on.
Before all the transmitters are set up, there is a testing period, during which the display switches quickly
between all the received transmitters at random, according to which random transmission it receives.
Pressing any key will stop this process. The process also stops automatically if up to 3 transmitters are
received or no keys are pressed for a few minutes.
Once the remote temperature and humidity have been received and displayed on the Weather station, the
DCF-77 time code reception is automatically started. This takes typically between 3-5 minutes in good
conditions. This time period is an excellent opportunity to locate the transmitter(s) in suitable location(s)
outdoors. In order to ensure sufficient 433 MHz transmission however, this should under good conditions be
31
7.
no more than 25 meters from where the Weather station will be finally positioned (see notes on
“Positioning” and “433 MHz Reception”).
If after 10 minutes, the DCF time has not been received, use the SET key to manually enter a time initially
The clock will automatically attempt to receive the DCF time at each full hour. 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 Time Setting”).
HOW TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE WEATHER STATION
The Weather station uses 2 x AA, IEC LR6, 1.5V batteries. When batteries will
need to be replaced, the low battery icon will appear on the LCD. To install and
replace the batteries, please follow the steps below:
1.
Insert finger or other solid object in the space at the bottom center of the
battery compartment and lift up to remove the cover.
2.

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 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 1,500km radius around
Frankfurt.
Once the outdoor temperature and humidity are 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
metres.
•
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.

WEATHER FORECAST AND TENDENCY:
The weather forecasting icons:
There are 3 weather icons in the third section of LCD which can be displayed in any of the following combinations:
Sunny
Cloudy with sunny intervals
Rainy
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 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.
45
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).
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 airpressure 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 (located on the left and right hand
side of the weather icons). 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.
Taking this into account, one can see how the weather has changed and is expected to change. For example, if the
indicator is pointing downwards together with cloud and sun icons, then the last noticeable change in the weather
was when it was sunny (the sun icon only). Therefore, the next change in the weather will be the cloud with rain
icons since the indicator is pointing downwards.
46
Note:
Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air pressure, it will remain permanently visualized
on the LCD.

data recorded to the current time, date, temperature and humidity. The current time taken is the normal
displayed time and does not regard the time zone set for the unit.
Note: the MIN/MAX data for each transmitter needs to be reset separately.
THERMO-HYGRO OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER:
The temperature and humidity are measured and transmitted every 60 seconds.
The range of the Thermo-Hygro outdoor 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.
433MHz RECEPTION CHECK
The Weather station should receive the temperature and humidity data within 15 minutes after set-up. If the
temperature and humidity data is not being received 15 minutes after setting up (the display shows “- - -” after
checking for the transmission 3 times) 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
(433MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and reception.
4.
Neighbours using electrical devices operating on the 433MHz signal frequency can also cause interference.
49
Note:
When the 433MHz 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 25 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 THE WEATHER STATION:
The Weather Station comes attached with removable table stand, which provides the option of
table standing or wall mounting the unit. Before wall mounting, please check that the outdoor
temperature and humidity values can be received from the desired locations. To wall mount:
1.
Fix a screw (not supplied) into the desired wall, leaving the head extended out the by
about 5mm.
2.
Remove the stand from the Weather Station by pulling it way from the base and hang it
onto the screw. Remember to ensure that it locks into place before releasing.
POSITIONING THE THERMO-HYGRO OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER
The Thermo-Hygro Outdoor Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached
to a wall with the three screws supplied. Before securing the transmitter, ensure that the
433MHz signal is properly received. To attach to the wall, 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.
50
There is also double sided tape included with the wall mount. On smooth surfaces this can be used instead of
drilling holes. The mounting surface can, however, affect the transmission range. If for example the unit is attached
to a piece of metal, it may then 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 Weather
station can receive the 433MHz signal from the Thermo-hygro transmitter at the positions that you wish to situate
them.
The Thermo-Hygro Outdoor Transmitter simply clicks in or out of the holder. When inserting or removing the
Thermo-Hygro Outdoor Transmitter from the wall holder please hold both units securely.
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 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.
