THE RESET BUTTON

This button is only used when the unit is operating in an unfavorable way or malfunctioning. Use a blunt stylus to hold down the button. All settings will return to their default values.

GETTING STARTED

Once batteries are in place for the remote units, they will start transmitting temperature readings at 30-second intervals.

The main unit will also start searching for signals for about a minute once batteries are installed. Upon successful reception, the individual channel temperatures will be displayed on the top line and the indoors temperature on the bottom line. The main unit will automatically update its readings at about 30-second intervals.

HOW TO CHECK REMOTE AND

INDOOR TEMPERATURES

The indoors temperature is shown on the second line of the display.

As for the remote sites or channels, press CHANNEL to go from one channel to another. The kinetic wave display on the channel number indicates the reception of that particular channel is in good order.

If no readings are received from one particular channel 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 press CHANNEL and

MEMORY simultaneously to enforce an immediate search. Of course no reading will be shown if no remote unit is assigned to that channel.

If the temperature goes above or below than the temperature measuring range of the main unit or the remote unit (stated in wpecification), the display will show “HHH” or “LLL”.

TEMPERATURE TREND

If no signals are received, blanks "----" will be displayed and the kinetic wave icon will show " ". Press CHANNEL and

MEMORY simultaneously to enforce another search for about 30 seconds. 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 respective remote unit.

HOW TO READ THE KINETIC WAVE

DISPLAY

The kinetic wave display shows the signal receiving status of the main unit. There are three possible forms:

The unit is in searching mode.

Temperature readings are securely registered.

No signals.

DISCONNECTED SIGNALS

If without obvious reasons the display for a particular channel goes blank, press CHANNEL and MEMORY to enforce an immediate search. If that fails, check:

1. The remote unit of that channel is still in place.

2. The batteries of both the remote unit and main unit. Replace as necessary.

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.

MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM

TEMPERATURES

The maximum and minimum recorded indoor temperatures and those of each channel will be automatically stored in memory. To display them,

1. Select the channel to be checked.

2. Press MEMORY once to display the maximum temperature and again the minimum temperature. The respective indicators,

MAX or MIN will be displayed.

To clear the memory, hold down MEMORY for two seconds. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be erased. If you press

MEMORY now, the maximum and minimum temperatures will have the same values as the current ones until different readings are recorded.

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.

ABOUT RADIO RECEPTION

The RMR112 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within range of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal.

When the RMR112 is within range, its radio-control mechanism will override all manual settings.

When the unit is receiving radio signal, the radio reception signal will start to blink. A complete reception generally takes about 2 to

10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal.

When the reception is complete, the radio reception signal will stop blinking. The strength of the reception for the last full hour will be indicated.
