Introduction
Thank you for selecting the Extech Instruments WB200 Thermo-Hygrometer Datalogger with Dew
Point and Wet Bulb Temperature readings. This device measures and displays four (4)
environmental parameters: Air Temperature, % Relative Humidity, Wet Bulb Temperature, and Dew
Point Temperature. This meter combines traditional dry/wet bulb operation with modern electronic
circuitry providing accurate readings and trouble-free operation especially in dusty environments.
The built-in datalogger, with selectable sampling rate, captures up to 100 readings for each
measurement type. The stored readings can be viewed on the meter’s LCD display.
The WB200 is perfect for greenhouses, other high humidity areas, and locations prone to harsh
environmental conditions.
This device is shipped fully tested and calibrated and, with proper use, will provide years of reliable
service. Extech Instruments is an ISO-9001 certified company. Check the Extech website

Powering the Meter
The WB200 can be powered using the four (4) supplied 1.5V batteries (AAA) or the supplied 5V
power adaptor; the adaptor is recommended for extended measurement sessions. When the low
battery icon appears replace the batteries promptly. Operating in a low battery condition will affect
vane rotation and measurement functions adversely. The battery compartment is located on the
bottom of the meter. Please refer to the Battery Replacement section of this guide for more
information.
Mounting the Meter
The meter can be placed on any surface or may be suspended by wire or string using the two
mounting holes at the top of the meter (one on either side of meter top). If the meter is to be kept on
a table top, work bench, or desktop surface take great care to avoid having the meter fall over on its
side (this may spill the contents of the water tank and may interfere with the operation of the fan).
Suspension is the preferred method of mounting since the meter is unlikely to fall over while
suspended.

Switching the Fan ON
As mentioned, the meter takes measurements only while the fan is running. When the meter is not
in the “CON” (continuous fan) mode, press the FAN button to start the fan and view current
measurements; the fan will run for 2 minutes with each button press. When the environmental
conditions change, run the fan to quicken the response time and to obtain the latest readings. To
access the CON (continuous) fan feature, refer to the SETUP mode section of this guide.
Maximum (MAX) and Minimum (MIN) Readings
The meter begins storing the maximum and minimum readings for air temperature, % relative
humidity, dew point temperature, and wet bulb temperature when the meter is switched ON. When
the meter is switched OFF, the MAX and MIN readings are cleared.
To view the maximum readings, press the MAX/MIN key once. The meter will now cycle through the
four (4) measurement modes presenting the highest reading encountered since power-up for each.
Note that the Mx icon will be displayed at the bottom of the LCD.
To view the minimum readings, press the MAX/MIN key again (from the MAX mode). The meter will
now cycle through the four (4) measurement modes again, presenting the lowest reading
encountered since power-up for each. Note that the Mn icon will be displayed. To return to the

Alarm Mode
The WB200 features High and Low temperature and humidity Alarms that alert the user when a
reading has exceeded a programmed limit for 30 seconds. The alert switches off when a reading
returns to normal for 30 seconds. Refer to SETUP section for details on setting alarm thresholds.
When alarming, the LED (located above the LCD) flashes RED and the beeper sounds. After
alarming for 1 minute, the beeper silences but the red LED continues to flash at a slower rate (the
meter display also flashes the ALM icon at the same rate as the flashing red LED).
Users can manually silence the beeper by pressing and holding any key for 2 seconds (while the
beeper is sounding). The flashing LED, however, will not cease until the readings return to a
normal range.
Datalogger Mode
The WB200 automatically records data for all four measurement types at a user-programmable
sampling rate (programmable from 15 minutes to 60 minutes in 5 minute increments). The
meter’s internal memory capacity is 100 records (each record has four readings, one for each
measurement type). Refer to the SETUP section of this guide for details on programming the
sampling rate.
1. Press and hold the MEMO (memory) key for 2 seconds to start datalogging. The display will
show the START icon as the meter begins recording. The REC icon will flash on the display
