WITH CABLE FREE
(SWISS SIGNAL "HBG")
HBR329 FORMLINE BAR
Congratulations on your purchase of the HBR329.
The basic package comes with a main unit, which is
the weather forecast station and, a remote unit, the
The main unit is capable of keeping track of the
maximum and minimum temperature of different sites.
And no wire installation is required and operates
2e) HOW TO USE THE TABLE STAND
OR WALL MOUNTING
The main unit has a removable table stand, which when
connected, can support the unit on a flat surface. Or you
can remove the stand and mount the unit on a wall using
the recessed screw hole.
2f) GETTING STARTED
Once batteries are in place for the remote unit, they will
start transmitting temperature readings at around 45 seconds
intervals. The main unit will also start searching for signals
for about two minutes once batteries are installed. Upon
successful reception, the outdoors temperatures will be
displayed . The main unit will automatically update its
readings at about 45-second intervals.
If no signals are received, blanks “"”.-” will be displayed.
Hold [ ¥ ] for 2 seconds to enforce another search for about
2 minutes. This is useful in synchronizing the transmission
and reception of the remote and main units.
Repeat this step whenever you find discrepancies between the
reading shown on the main unit and that on the remote unit.
1. It is not necessary and not possible to adjust the altitude of
the weather station. After the initial start-up of the weather
station, a first forecast will be made within the first 24
hours of operation.
2. In periods of long stable weather conditions, it becomes
difficult to make a reliable forecast.
3. The weather forecast is solely calculated on the basis of
barometric air pressure changes.
4. The probability of a correct weather forecast 1s
approximately 70% and is valid for an area of approx.
0-30 km around the location of the weather station.
5. The forecast "Sunny" means at night "cloudless weather".
Fog is not indicated by the weather station as this can
occur with different weather conditions.
6. If you travel with the weather station, a reliable weather
forecast will become impossible due to 24 hour so that the
weather station can calculate a new forecast based on the
conditions at the new location.
3b) ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE
The atmospheric pressure indicator, in the weather forecast
window, uses arrows to indicate if the atmospheric
pressure is increasing, remaining stable, or decreasing.
Facilitates easy reading of remote and indoors

The wave display on the outdoors temperature indicates
the reception of the remote unit is in good order.
If no readings are received from the remote unit for more
than two minutes, blanks “ ” will be displayed until
further readings are successfully searched. Check the remote
unit is sound and secure. You can wait for a little while or
Hold [ ¥ | for 2 seconds to enforce an immediate search.
If the temperature goes above or below than the temperature
measuring range of the main unit or the remote unit (stated
in specification), the display will show ”.-”

To clear the memory, hold down [ MEM ] for two seconds.
The maximum and minimum readings will be erased
4d) DISCONNECTED SIGNALS
If without obvious reasons the display of the outdoor
temperature goes blank, Hold [ W ] for 2 seconds to enforce
an immediate search.
If that fails, check:
1. The remote unit is still in place.
2. The batteries of both the remote unit and main unit. Replace
Note: When the temperature falls below freezing point, the
batteries of outdoor units will freeze, lowering their
voltage supply and the effective range.
3. The transmission is within range and path is clear of obstacles
and interference. Shorten the distance when necessary.
4e) TRANSMISSION COLLISION
Signals from other household devices, such as door bells,
home security systems and entry controls, may interfere with
those of this product and cause temporarily reception failure.
This is normal and does not affect the general performance of
the product. The transmission and reception of temperature
readings will resume once the interference recedes.
4f) TEMPERATURE TREND
