|Discontinued Weather Stations|
The La Crosse Technology WS-3610U-CH is a feature-rich, touch screen weather station, with brushed aluminum trim panels that contrast nicely with the silver plastic body and silver LCD display panel. Complete weather data is available on the compact, backlit LCD display (which is blue when illuminated), or the data can be imported to and displayed on a PC using the included interface, cable, and software.
The WS-3610U-CH is similar to the WS-2315 series weather stations in that the outdoor sensors are wired together, from the wind speed and rainfall sensors back to the thermo-hygrometer sensor, but the data link from the thermo-hygro sensor to the base station can be wired or wireless (your choice). When the link from the outdoor sensors to the console is wireless, no cables need to be run out to the sensors, and the outdoor sensors operate on battery power. When wired, the remotes are powered by the console. When used in wireless mode, additional display consoles may be used in other locations, limited only by transmission range (up to 330 feet in free air with no obstructions, walls, or interference).
The station's weather-forecasting feature senses barometric pressure over time and adjusts the indicator icons and tendency arrows to provide accurate forecasts based on pressure trends. A programmable alarm option allows alarms to be set for certain weather conditions (such as danger of frost, possibility of storms, unfavorable air pressure and temperature tendencies, and the like). Up to 13 different alarm types, many with both high and low alarm thresholds, can be programmed and set.
Compact in size at approximately 8 3/4 inches high by 6 inches wide. The base station has a foldout support for use a freestanding unit on a table or desk, or you can mount the unit on a wall. All cables use standard telephone wire and modular connectors. They can be extended up to an additional 32 feet, depending on the electrical interference present in the local environment.
The three remote sensors supplied with the station include a rainfall sensor, a wind speed and direction sensor, and an outdoor temperature/humidity sensor. Both the rainfall sensor and the wind speed and direction sensor are wired to the thermo-hygro sensor (32-foot replaceable cables provided) to share power and the data uplink path. The uplink path can be either wireless (up to 330 feet in clear air) or wired via the included 32 foot-cable.
The sensors are powered by shared batteries in the thermo-hygro remote, or by power supplied by the base station when operating in the wired mode. Powering options are as follows:
