WS-2315OAK is a feature-rich, yet affordable, weather station with
real wood trim in an oak finish. Complete weather data is available
on the compact, backlit LCD display, or the data can be imported to and
displayed on a PC using the included interface, cable, and software.
The WS-2315OAK is unique 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). This reduces cost and
complexity while improving reliability.

weather-forecasting feature senses barometric pressure over time and
adjusts the indicator icons and tendency arrows to provide accurate
forecasts based on pressure trends.
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.
The included software requires
WindowsTM 98 or above and Pentium 166 MHz or higher. The PC
must have 32M of RAM, 20M of hard drive space, and a CD-ROM drive to
install. The included software can remove stored data from the Interface
and place it in a file on the PC's hard drive. Selected data can be
exported as an ASCII file for use in other programs (such as Excel). Also,
graphs, charts, and data lists can be generated from the stored data (for
example, wind speed and direction for January 2001).
Compact in size at
approximately 6.3 inches high by 6.1 inches wide, the WS2315 base station
features real wood accent columns finished in oak on both sides of the LCD
display panel. The main unit has two foldout legs for use a freestanding
unit on a table, shelf, 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.
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 100 feet in clear air) or wired via the included 32 foot-cable.

supplied by the base station when operating in the wired mode. Powering
options are as follows:
