Before commissioning

 NOTICEAvoid connection faults!In order to avoid connection problems between the devices, the following points must be observed during commissioning.

  1. Place the base unit (receiver) and sensor (transmitter) as close together as possible.
  2. Connect the power supply to the base unit and wait until the indoor temperature is displayed.
  3. Establish power supply for the sensor.
  4. Set up/operate the base unit and sensor within the effective transmission range.
  5. Make sure that the base unit and the radio sensor are set to the same channel.

When changing the batteries, always remove the batteries in both the base unit and the sensor and reinsert them in the correct order so that the radio connection can be re-established. If one of the two devices is operated via a mains power connection, the power connection for this device must also be disconnected briefly when changing the battery. If, for example, only the batteries in the sensor are replaced, the signal cannot be received or can no longer be received correctly.Note that the actual range depends on the building materials used in the building and the position of the base unit and outdoor sensor. External influences (various radio transmitters and other sources of interference) can greatly reduce the possible range. In such cases, we recommend finding other locations for both the base unit and the outdoor sensor. Sometimes a shift of just a few centimetres is enough!Though the remote unit is weather proof, it should be placed away from direct sunlight, rain or snow.

Setting up power supply

Base unit

  1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
  2. Insert the batteries into the battery compartment. Ensure that the battery polarity (+/-) is correct.
  3. Replace the battery compartment cover.
  4. Wait until the indoor temperature is displayed on the base station.Remote sensor
  5. Remove the battery compartment cover.
  6. Insert the batteries into the battery compartment. Ensure that the battery polarity (+/-) is correct.
  7. Move the CH slide control to the position for the desired transmission channel (setting CH1, CH2 or CH3 with screen display).

NOTICE! When operating one outdoor sensor, channel 1 is recommended as the default setting.

Battery level indicator

  1. When the level of the batteries in the base station or in the wireless sensor reaches a critical level, the battery level symbol appears in the appropriate area on the display.
  2. When replacing one set of batteries, always remove the batteries from the other part of the unit and reinsert them in the correct order (see chapter “Setting up power supply”). Replace the batteries to be changed in the corresponding part of the device with a completely new set with full capacity. This ensures that the connection between the devices will be reestablished again correctly.

Automatic time setting

After the power supply was established, the clock will automatically search for the radio signal. This will take approximately 3 to 8 minutes to finish this process.

If the radio signal is received correctly, the date and time will be set automatically and the radio control signal icon turns on.If the clock fails to receive the time signal, go ahead with the following steps:

  1. Press °C/°F button on the base station for approx. 3 seconds to initate RC signal reception again.
  2. If the device is still not receiving the signal, the time must be set manually.

Barometric / Atmospheric Pressure

Atmospheric Pressure is the pressure at any location on earth, caused by the weight of the column of air above it.One atmospheric pressure refers to the average pressure 17 / 108 and gradually decreases as altitude increases. Meteorologists use barometers to measure atmospheric pressure.Since variation in atmospheric pressure is greatly affected by weather, it is possible to forecast the weather by measuring the changes in pressure.

  1. Press the BARO button to switch between barometric pressure display in inHg or in hPa.
  2. Press the BARO button for 3 seconds to change between absolute and relative atmospheric pressure.
    • ABSOLUTE: the absolute atmospheric pressure of your location.
    • RELATIVE: the relative atmospheric pressure based on the sea level.Set relative atmospheric pressure value
  3. Get the atmospheric pressure data of the sea level (it is also the relative atmospheric pressure data of your home area) through the local weather service, internet and other channels.
  4. Press and hold the BARO button for approx. 3 seconds until “abs” or “rel” flashes.
  5. Press CH/UP or 12/24/DOWN button to switch to “rel” mode.
  6. Press the BARO button and the number for “rel” flashes.
  7. Press CH/UP or 12/24/DOWN button to change the value.
  8. Press the BARO button to save and exit the setting mode.NOTE
  9. The default relative atmospheric pressure value is 1013 mb/hPa (29.91 inHg), which refers to the average atmospheric pressure.
  10. When you change the relative atmospheric pressure value, the weather indicators will change along with it.
  11. The built-in barometer can notice the environmental absolute atmospheric pressure changes. Based on the collected data a forecast for the weather conditions in the next 12 hours can be made. Therefore, the weather indicators will change according to the detected absolute atmospheric pressure after you operate the clock for 1 hour.
  12. The relative atmospheric pressure is based on the sea level, but it will change with the absolute atmospheric pressure changes after operating the clock for 1 hour.

Connecting remote sensors

The Weather Station can display the readings from up to 3 wireless sensors* of the same type. Each radio sensor must be set to a separate channel. Proceed as follows to set the channel:

  1. Remove the battery compartment cover of the wireless sensor.
  2. Set the channel selection switch to the desired channel (CH1, CH2 or CH3).
  3. Re-attach the battery compartment cover.
  4. NOTICE! Each connected wireless sensor must be set to a different channel. If only one wireless sensor is connected, it should be set to CH1.
  5. Press the CH/UP button on the base station several times to display the measured values for the individual channels. The selected channel is shown in the display.
    • one wireless sensor included, others optionally available

Temperature display

Press the °C/°F button to switch between the temperature display in °C or °F.When temperatures of -40°C or below and humidity of 20% or below are reached, the information “LO” is output for the respective range.At temperatures of 70°C or higher and a humidity of 90% or higher, the information “HI” is displayed.For values outside the measurable range “- -” is displayed.When returning to a measurable temperature range, the corresponding temperature is displayed again.

History record for the past 24 hours

The base station automatically records air pressure readings from the last 24 hours.If necessary, press the HISTORY button several times to display the history data for the hourly values (HOUR – up to 24 hours backwards) for the pressure one after the other.When a history date is displayed, press any key (except HISTORY) to return to the normal display mode.

NOTICE! In the history bar graph the values for the pressure of the last 24 hours can be read at any time in compressed form.

MAX/MIN Weather data

The main unit saves highest and lowest value records for indoor and outdoor temperature as well as for humidity for 24 hours:

  1. Press the MAX/MIN button repeatedly to display the stored values of the base station and the currently set remote sensor one after another.
  2. Display order: Highest values > Lowest values > Current values
  3. Press MAX/MIN button for approx. 3 seconds to delete all values of the current recording period.
  4. NOTICE! When the batteries are changed, all values of the current recording period will also be deleted.
