below:
1.
2.
3.
Remove the battery compartment cover.
Insert the batteries, observing the correct polarity (see marking).
Replace the battery compartment cover on the unit.
Note:
In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be reset by following the setting up procedures. This is
because a random security code is assigned by the transmitter at start-up and this code must be received and stored by the
Weather station in the first 3 minutes of power being supplied to it
24
BATTERY CHANGE:
It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units on an annual basis to ensure optimum accuracy of these units.
Please participate in the preservation of the environment. Return used batteries to an authorized
depot.
SETTING UP
WHEN ONE TRANSMITTER IS USED
1.
First, insert the batteries in the transmitter (see “How to install and replace batteries in the Thermo-hygro
outdoor transmitter” above).
2.
Within 2 minutes of powering up the transmitter, insert the batteries in the Weather Station (see “How to install
and replace batteries in the Weather Station” above). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD
will light up briefly and a short signal tone will sound. Following the indoor temperature/humidity and the time as
0:00 will be displayed. If these information are not displayed on the LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries
and wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed user may proceed to
the next step.
25
3.
4.
After the batteries are inserted, the Weather station will start receiving data signal from the transmitter. The
outdoor temperature and humidity data should then be displayed on the Weather station. If this does not happen
after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.
In order to ensure sufficient 868 MHz transmission however, the distance between the Weather Station and the
transmitter should not be more than 100 meters (see notes on “Positioning” and “868 MHz Reception”).
Note:
In the event of changing batteries of the units, ensure the batteries do not spring free from the contacts. Always wait at
least 1 minute after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur.
WHEN MORE THAN ONE TRANSMITTER IS USED
1.
User shall remove all the batteries from the Weather Station and transmitters, and wait 60 seconds.
2.
Insert the batteries in the first transmitter.
3.
Within 2 minutes of powering up the first transmitter, insert the batteries in the Weather Station. Once the
batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tine will sound. Following the
indoor temperature/humidity and the time as 0:00 will be displayed. If these information are not displayed on the
LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries from both units and wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting
them.

7.
The outdoor temperature and humidity data from the first transmitter (channel 1) should then be displayed on the
Weather Station. Also, the signal reception icon will be displayed. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the
batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries in the second transmitter as soon as the outdoor temperature and humidity readings from the
first transmitter are displayed on the Weather Station.
Note : User shall insert the batteries into the second transmitter within 45 seconds after the Weather Station
displays the information of the first transmitter.
The outdoor temperature and humidity from the second transmitter and the "channel 2" icon should then be
displayed on the Weather Station. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed
from all the units and reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries in the third transmitter as soon as the "channel 2" icon and outdoor data are displayed on the
Weather Station. Then within 2 minutes, the channel 3 outdoor data from the third transmitter will be displayed
and the channel icon will shift back to "1" once the third transmitter is successfully received. If this is not happen,
user shall restart the setting up from step 1.
Note : User shall insert the batteries into the third transmitter within 45 seconds after the Weather Station
displays the information of the first transmitter.
27
8.
In order to ensure sufficient 868 MHz transmission however, the distance between the Weather Station and the
transmitter should not be more than 100 meters (see notes on “Positioning” and “868 MHz Reception”).
IMPORTANT:
Transmission problems will arise if the setting for additional sensors is not followed as described above. Should
transmission problems occur, it is necessary to remove the batteries from all units and start again the set-up from step
1.
RESETTING
The Weather Station and the Thermo-hygro transmitter need to be reset when one of the following conditions occur:
•
Unsuccessful 868MHz signal reception.
•
Malfunction on the units.
•
Batteries replacement.
For resetting, remove all batteries from the units. Wait at least for 1 minute before powering up the Weather station
again. Proceed from step 1 in “Setting Up”.
28
DCF 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 1500km radius of Frankfurt.
Once the outdoor data reception learning period is completed, 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.
DCF reception is done twice daily at 02:00 and 03:00 am. If the reception is not successful at 03:00 am, then the next
reception takes place the next hour and so on until 06:00am, or until the reception is successful. If the reception is not
successful at 06:00 am, then the next attempt will take place the next day at 02:00 am.
29
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
meters.
•
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 WEATHER TENDENCY:
WEATHER FORECASTING ICONS:
Weather icons in the third section of LCD can be displayed in any of the following combinations:
FORECAST
FORECAST
FORECAST
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
47
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.
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 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).
48
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), discard the weather forecast for the next 12-24 hours.
By doing this, the Weather Station will not mistake the new location as being a possible change in air-pressure when
really it is due to the slight change of altitude.
WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
Working together with the weather icons is the weather tendency indicators (located on the left and right sides 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 cloud with rain icons since the
indicator is pointing downwards.
Note:
49
Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air pressure, it will remain permanently visualized on
the LCD.
AIR PRESSURE HISTORY (ELECTRONIC BAROMETER WITH BAROMETRIC PRESSURE TREND)
The third section of the LCD also shows the relative air pressure value and the air pressure history.
Air pressure over the last 24 hours
The bar chart indicates the air pressure history trend over the last 24 hours in 7 steps, 0h, -3h, -6h, -9h, -12h, -18h, and
-24h. The “0h” represents the current full hour air pressure recording. The columns represent the “hPa” (0, ±2, ±4, ±6)
at specific time. The “0” in the middle of this scale is equal to the current pressure and each change (±2, ±4, ±6)
represents how high or low in “hPa“ the past pressure was compared to the current pressure.
If the bars are rising it means that the weather is getting better due to the increase of air pressure. If the bars go down,
it means the air pressure has dropped and the weather is expected to get worse from the present time “0h“.
50
Note:
For accurate barometric pressure trends, the Weather Station should operate at the same altitude for example, it
should not be moved from the ground to the second floor of the house. Should the unit be moved to a new location,
discard readings for the next 12-24 hours.
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE/HUMIDITY DATA
The fourth LCD section shows the outdoor temperature and humidity, the reception indicator, the transmitter
identification number and the MIN/MAX outdoor data.

To reset the minimum and maximum temperature and humidity data, and the times at which they were recorded,
press the SET key continuously for about 3 seconds. This will reset the MIN/MAX 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.
TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER:
Outdoor
temperature
The LCD display shows the current temperature and humidity at the location of the transmitter. The temperature and
humidity is measured and transmitted to the Weather Station approximately every 4 seconds.
The range of the Temperature Transmitter may be affected by the temperature and humidity. At cold temperatures the
transmitting distance may be decreased. Please bear this in mind when positioning the transmitter. The LCD contrast
on the unit will also be reduced when the batteries are reduced in power.
53
LOW BATTERY INDICATOR
Low battery indicator is displayed on the LCD when the batteries require changing.
ABOUT THE OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER
The range of the Thermo-hygro transmitter may be affected by the temperature. At cold temperatures the transmitting
distance may be decreased. Please bear this in mind when positioning the transmitters. Also the batteries may be
reduced in power for the Thermo-hygro transmitter.
CHECKING FOR 868MHz RECEPTION
If the outdoor temperature and humidity data are not being received within three minutes after setting up (or outdoor
display always show “- -. -” in the outdoor section of the Weather station during normal operation), please check the
following points:
1.
The distance of the Weather station or transmitters should be at least 2 meters away from any interfering sources
such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid placing the transmitters onto or in the immediate proximity of metal window frames.
54
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the 868MHz-signal frequency may
prevent correct signal transmission or reception. Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 868MHzsignal frequency can also cause interference.
Note:
When the 868MHz 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 around 100 meters from the Thermo-hygro 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” above).
55
POSITIONING THE WEATHER STATION
The Weather station provides the option of table standing or wall mounting the unit. Before wall
mounting, please check that the outdoor data 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
by about 5mm.
2.
Place the weather station onto the screw, using the hanging hole on the
backside. Gently pull the
weather station down to lock the screw into place.
56
Foldout table stand:
The foldout table stand leg is located on the backside. Pull the stand out from the bottom center
edge of the weather station, below the battery compartment. Once the foldout table stand is
extended, place the weather station in an appropriate location.
POSITIONING THE THERMO-HYGRO TRANSMITTER:
The Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached to a wall with the two screws supplied.
The Transmitter can also be position on a flat surface by securing the stand to the bottom of the
Transmitter.
57
To wall mount:
1. Secure the bracket onto a desired wall using the screws and plastic anchors.
2. Clip the remote thermo-hygro transmitter onto the bracket.
Note:
Before permanently fixing the transmitter wall base, place all units in the desired locations to check that
the outdoor temperature reading is receivable. In event that the signal is not received, relocate the
transmitters or move them slightly as this may help the signal reception.
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.
58
•
•
•
•
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 not 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.
