Frequently Asked Questions-

The following is a new and on-going list of Frequently Asked Questions. Because the WS-2310 is a new release, we do not yet have a large database of questions from our consumers.

Does the display have a back light?
  • Yes. It will shine continuously when using AC power, or come on when a button is pressed if using batteries for power.
What is the range of the sensors when operating wirelessly?
  • The maximum range is 24.5 meters.
  • Please keep in mind that obstacles between the display and temperature/humidity sensor will decrease the effective reception range.
Can you extend the length of the cables?
  • Yes, but we do not recommend that the cables be extended more than 10 additional meters.
How long do the batteries last?
  • The batteries will last approximately one year.
  • For optimum performance please be sure to use quality alkaline batteries.
  • When operating the system completely wired while using batteries, the battery life will be decreased due to an increased transmission rate.
What part of the weather center set must be wired?
  • The wind and rain sensors must be hard wired to the temperature/humidity sensor.
Do you have to wire the temperature/humidity sensor to the display?
  • No, the temperature/humidity sensor will transmit all of the sensor information wirelessly via a 433 MHz signal.
How often does the temperature/humidity sensor transmit when operating wirelessly?
  • Every 32 to 128 seconds depending on wind speed.
  • If wind speed is >36 km/h the transmission time is 32 seconds.
  • If wind speed is <36 km/h the transmission time is 128 seconds.
Can I calibrate the Barometric Pressure for my altitude?
  • Yes. Press the “Set” key 10 times, the barometric pressure will flash.
  • Press and release the “+” or “-“ key to adjust the pressure to the pressure of your local weather station.
Reception then no reception - loss of transmission signal from the sensor to the base station
  • Press and hold the PLUS (+) key for 2 seconds to synchronize the base station to the sensors for weather data reception. If still no signal, then change the sensor batteries and synchronize the units again.
