BAROMETERS ADVICE FOR USE
THE BAROMETER MUST BE ADJUSTED TO THE ALTITUDE OF ITS PLACE OF USE.
This is done by comparing it with a “master” barometer through the local weather station, or the registered weather service by phone.
Don’t forget to consider the dierence of altitude between the place of adjustment and the place of use of your barometer: 10m more=1.1 hPa less!
Make this adjustment immediately after consulting the “master “barometer.
To make the adjustment, using a flat b l ade screwdriver, turn the adjustment screw at the back side of the barometer.
WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE ADJUSTMENT SCREW
QUARTZ CLOCK INSTRUCTIONS
1.- Use only alkaline batteries.
2.- If clock stops, it is most likely due a dead battery
3.- If clock is to be left unattended for a long period of time. The battery should be removed. Otherwise it could become dead and leak acid causing damage to the movement.
Note: Movement damage caused by battery leakage will void warranty
THERMOMETER & HYGROMETER INSTRUCTIONS
Thermometer operating instructions
A bimetal thermometer works on the principle that a diferent metals contract and expand to diferent degrees when exposed to temperature changes
Range: -20-50 º C/ -4-122 º F
Tolerance: +/- 2ºC
Note: The Thermometer had been pre-adjusted and calibrated in a temperature-controlled environment at factory.
Warning: The thermometer will be damaged if overtopping the working range.
Hygrometer operating instructions
The hygrometer will indicate the relative humidity of the atmosphere. While indoor and outdoor barometric is identical, it is not true of the relative humidity. Therefore, remember that this instrument when used in the home indicates humidity of the room atmosphere which has no relation to the outdoor humidity readings announced on weather reports.
Range: -20- 90 ºC % RH
Tolerance: – 9ºC
Readjustment of the Hygrometer
If a hygrometer is exposed to very dry air over a longer period of time and if you would like to maintain a correct reading, we recommend you to readjust the instrument every 3-4 months.
Put a damp cloth on the back of the hygrometer for about an hour to allow humidity to get into the instrument and circulate within the case of the hygrometer. After that period of time the scale should read approximately 95%. The humidity indicator will then start to operate again. To maintain accuracy of thie instrument, it is advisable to repeat this procedure every 3-4 months.
This comfortmeter is a combination of both temperature and humidity indicators. Calibration and positioning of hands are designed to indicate perfect comfort conditions when both hands cross in a limited area of the dial, the COMFORT zone.
Note: Both temperature and humidity indicators are accurately calibrated at the factory and normally required no adjustment.
