BEFORE YOU BEGIN
* We recommend using alkaline batteries for the remote
rain gauge, temperature sensor and main unit when
temperatures are above 0°C (32°F). We recommend
using lithium batteries for the temperature sensor when
temperatures are below 0°C (32°F).
» Avoid using rechargeable batteries. (Rechargeable
batteries cannot maintain correct power requirements).
e ALWAYS install batteries in the remote rain gauge and
the remote temperature sensor before the main unit.
® Insert batteries before first use, matching the polarity in
the battery compartment
* Press RESET in the remote temperature sensor after
each battery change with a paper clip or similar tool.
* Remove protective plastic screen from LCD display (If
any)
* During an initial setup, place the main unit close to the
remote rain gauge and remote temperature sensor
* Important: Only after reception is established (the
remote rainfall data and temperature will appear on the
main unit's display), you may position and mount the
remote sensors (the rain gauge and the temperature
sensor) and the main unit within the effective
transmission range of 30 metres.
e The remote rain gauge must be placed outdoors on the
open area, away from the walls, fences and trees and level.
* It is important that excess precipitation can freely flow
from the remote rain gauge.
* The remote temperature sensor can be placed indoors or
outdoors, depending on the area where the
temperature is intended to be measured. If you intend
measuring outdoor temperature, place the remote
temperature sensor outdoors.
11
*The main unit must be placed indoors.
NOTE:
1. Avoid pressing any buttons on the main unit before the
remote rainfall and temperature data are displayed.
2. The effective operating range may be influenced by the
surrounding building materials and how the receiver
(main unit) and transmitters (remote rain gauge and
temperature sensor) are positioned.
3. Place the remote rain gauge and temperature sensor so
that it faces the main unit (receiver), minimizing
obstructions such as doors, walls, and furniture.
4. Though the remote temperature sensors are
weather-resistant, they should be placed away from
direct sunlight, rain or snow. The best suggested
location for the remote temperature sensor for outdoors
is under the eave on the north side of the building.
NOTE: When the temperature falls below freezing, the
batteries in the remote rain gauge and outdoor remote
temperature sensor may have reduced voltage supply and
a shorter effective range. We recommend using lithium
batteries at temperatures of 0°C (32°F) and below.
