1.
All sensors should be ready for the setup process. First, insert batteries to
the Rain sensor, and then switch on the Solar Wind sensor by pressing its
RESET button. Finally, insert batteries to the Thermo-Hygro sensor.
IMPORTANT! Make sure the correct polarity when inserting batteries.
Inserting the batteries incorrectly may result in permanent damage to the
units. Only use alkaline batteries, rechargeable batteries may not work.
2.
Insert batteries into the Weather Station, e.g. the model WS-2812U-IT.
Note: During the setup process, place the wireless display and the
outdoor sensors on a surface with 3-10 feet between the sensors and the
display.
3.
The Weather Station receives data from the Thermo-Hygro sensor. The
collected information should be displayed on the Weather Station,
including the outdoor temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind-chill and windspeed and wind-direction.
Note: Every time the Weather Station receives data from the sensors, the
will blink once and then return to solid if the last
wireless icons
transmission was successful. A wind speed or rainfall amount that reads
"0" does not mean reception failure, it means that there was no wind or
rain at the time of the last measurement. If the sensor data fails to display
for any of the outdoor sensors within 10 minutes, (“- - -“ is displayed),
Remove the batteries from all units for 1 minute and start again from step
1.
4.
You may then check all components for correct function by manually
turning the wind-gauge, moving the weather-vane, tilting the rain sensor to
hear the impact of the internally moving seesaw, etc.
5.
Time and date shall be manually set for the Weather Station.
6.
After the Weather Station has been checked for correct function with
regard to the above points, the initial set up of the wireless weather
system is finished and the mounting of the system components can take
place.
Note: The Weather Station and the Thermo-Hygro sensor should be set
within the reception distance (up to 200 feet / 60 meters in open space).
The Thermo-Hygro sensor and the Rain sensor should be set within the
reception distance (up to 200 feet / 60 meters in open space). The
Thermo-Hygro sensor and the Solar wind sensor should be set within the
reception distance (up to 330 feet / 100 meters in open space). The Rain
sensor and the Solar Wind sensor should be mounted on the same side of
the house provided there are no interfering obstacles such as buildings,
trees, vehicles, high voltage lines, Ham radio antennae, etc. Radio
interferences created by PC screens, cordless phones, radios or TV sets
can in some cases entirely cut off radio communication. Please take this
into consideration when choosing standing or mounting locations.
Detailed setup procedures of the wireless weather system, refer to the
main operation manual of the Weather Station.
TXTX-63U
63U-IT
SOLAR WIND SENSOR
The TX63U-IT Solar Wind sensor is used in conjunction with the TX59U-IT relay
transmitter to gather and transmit information to the wireless Weather Station
(e.g. WS-2812U-IT).

START THE SOLAR WIND SENSOR
During the first time of operation, user has to remove the mask that covered on
the solar panel then gently press the RESET button once in the bottom of the
device by the provided Plastic reset rod
to wake it up.
RESET
Note: It is important to allow sufficient
button
light to reach the solar panel while
activating the Solar Wind sensor. Make
sure the lights are on in the setup room
and the solar panel is facing a 60W
light bulb or brighter – do not cover
Bottom of the Solar
with hands or other objects.

MOUNTING
The Solar Wind sensor must be installed with the solar panel facing true South,
or the reported wind direction will not be accurate. This device should be
mounted within the reception distance (up to 330 feet / 100 meters in open
space) of the Thermo-Hygro sensor and on the same side of the house. Mount
at least 3 feet above the roofline of your house. Please be sure there is clear
area in every direction from buildings, trees, hills etc.
IDLE MODE
This mode aims to reduce power consumption of the transmitter. Under this
mode, the sensor stops the transmission of signal, checks the battery voltage
and detects the solar cell condition. The IDLE mode happens if the battery
voltage is low.
Note: The sensor will check and charge up the internal rechargeable battery
automatically, when it detects the battery voltage raises up to sufficiently high
enough, the transmission of signal starts again.
Mount the wind sensor onto a mast so the wind can reach the sensor
unobstructed from all directions for an accurate reading. The ideal mast is
between 0.62” and 1.3” in diameter. Secure the main unit to the shaft of the
mast holder. Use the right-angle adapter if the wind sensor will be mounted on a
horizontal mast or surface.
STOP MODE
It is the most energy saving mode. Under this mode, the transmitter stops the
transmission of signal, no checking battery voltage, no detecting the solar cell
condition and force it stop charge batteries. The STOP mode happens:
•
If the user covers the solar cell for 10 seconds and presses the RESET
button.
Note: To restart the Solar Wind sensor, user should place the sensor in a
bright environment then press the RESET button once to wake it up again.
•
If the sensor is placed in the dark environment for 72 hours.
Note: To restart the Solar Wind sensor, user should move the wind cup or
place the sensor in a bright environment then press the RESET button
once to wake it up again.
The remote wind speed sensor can be mounted two ways:
Using nylon straps
•
With the use of screws
•
Vertical mast
Fixed with
Nylon strap
IMPORTANT! During the restart process, if the battery voltage is sufficiently
high enough, the transmission of signal starts again. However, if the battery
voltage is low, the sensor enters into IDLE mode. User should place the sensor
under a bright environment in order to charge up the rechargeable batteries
inside the sensor.

MOUNTING WITH NYLON STRAPS
1.
Place two nylon straps through the slots on the mounting bracket.
2.
Place the Solar Wind sensor in your desired location.
3.
Fasten the two nylon straps securely around the mounting location.
4.
Slide the Solar Wind sensor onto the bracket making sure to lock it in
place.
SETTING UP
Follow the setup process below to make sure this device can work properly with
the wireless weather system:
MOUNTING WITH SCREWS
1.
Place the mounting bracket over the desired location.
2.
Through the two screw holes of the bracket, mark the mounting surface
with a pencil.
3.
Screw the mounting bracket and right-angle adapter onto the mounting
surface. Ensure that the screws are tight against the bracket, but do
not over-tighten the screws, or the mast holder may break.
4.
Slide the Solar Wind sensor onto the bracket. Make sure to lock it in
place.
