Installation suggestions for Oregon Scientific Pro Weather Stations

ANEMOMETER (WIND GAUGE)
The anemometer consists of a solar powered data transmitter and a wind vane (direction) and cup anemometer (speed).

The ideal positioning for this unit is in open space where there are no wind shadows caused by buildings or trees – often the best position is located on a TV antenna on the roof of your property.

The unit has a transmission range of up to 100m (line of sight). Positioned on most roof tops should cause too many problems, just ensure the receiver main unit is on the same side of the house as walls and windows reduce the range.

RAIN GAUGE
The rain gauge consists of a solar powered data transmitter and a self-empting rain bucket.

The ideal positioning for this unit is in an open space where precipitation can easily fall in to the gauge. Ensure there is no rain shadow caused by trees or buildings.

The unit should be mounted level to maintain accurate readings – one of best positions is in the middle of the yard on a fence post or some raised location off the ground to prevent accidental damage.

The unit has a transmission range of up to 100m * (line of sight).

Positioned at the end of most back yards should not cause too much of an issue with range, just ensure the receiver main unit is on the same side of the house as walls and windows reduce the range.

THERMO/HYGROMETER
The thermo/hygrometer consists of a solar powered data transmitter and a thermo/hygrometer sensor (looks like a microphone).

The ideal positioning for this sensor is on the wall or post mounted above ground level, but with a good air circulation and in the shade – ambient temperature and humidity readings are always measured in the shade.

The unit has a transmission range of up to 100m (line of sight). Positioned at the end of most back yards should not cause too much of an issue with range, just ensure the receiver main unit is on the same side of the house as walls and windows reduce the range.

THERMO/HYGRO/BAROMETER
The thermo/hygro/barometer consists of a battery powered sensor with LCD screen depicting weather forecast, actual barometric pressure, temperature and humidity. This unit is designed as an indoor sensor and should be ideally located alongside the main display screen.

The main display screen unit has NO sensor functions and is just an information display panel.

Please note all sensors are weather resistant and should easily cope with the rigours of most weather conditions.
