Aercus Instruments WS2083 and WS3083 Transmitter Troubleshooting

If your WS2083 or WS3083 is losing connecting with any of the outdoor sensors double check the following:

  1. The batteries in both units are fresh and fully charged.  Alkaline batteries slow down and freeze in colder temperatures, which leads to signal dropouts so we recommend Lithium batteries in colder climates.  Also avoid rechargeable batteries as many are 1.2V (need standard 1.5V) and they also leak their peak charge quickly even if they are 1.5V.
  2. Remove the batteries from both the receiver and the outside transmitter and wait for 1 minute, then re-insert making sure to put the batteries in the receiver last to force a proper resync.
  3. The transmitter is not out of range. Going through walls can significantly reduce the range. Test this by taking the receiver closer to the transmitter, remove and reinsert the batteries and wait for a few minutes to see whether the signal is picked up.
  4. Check for sources of interference (cordless phones, baby monitors etc)

If 3 or 4 is an issue you may need to relocate the sensor array, receiver, or both.

  1. Check all connections are secure and plugged in correctly.
  2. For the WS3083 only if you are losing UV/light readings reset the UV/light sensor by pressing and holding the Reset button on the underside of the solar panel for 4 seconds then release.  Then press and hold the DOWN key on the console for 4 seconds then release. After this the Base Station will make an initial measurement and start to register the transmitter (the radio reception icon will be turned on). Do not touch the Base Station before the outdoor data is received (this may take several minutes) or the outdoor sensor learning mode will be terminated. When the outdoor transmitter has been registered the Base Station will automatically switch to the normal display mode from which all further settings can be adjusted by the user.
