La Crosse Technology WS-2308CH 
Professional Wireless Weather Center


The La Crosse Technology WS-2308CH is a feature-rich weather station, with dark cherry finished wood trim panels that contrast nicely with the champagne colored body and silver LCD display panel. 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-2308 series differs from the WS-3610 series in that less data is simultaneously displayed on the smaller display, the range from the remotes to the console (when in wireless mode) is less, and there is no touch screen functionality.  The WS-2308 series is similar to the WS-231x series, with an updated look.

The WS-2308CH 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 100 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 100 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:

  • Base station and remotes can be battery-powered, in which case the base station uses 3 AA (1.5V) alkaline batteries and the thermo-hygro remote uses 2 size AA alkaline or Lithium batteries.
  • Base station can be powered by the included ac adapter, and remotes can be battery-powered by 2 size AA alkaline or Lithium batteries in the thermo-hygro remote.
  • Both base station and remotes can be powered by the included ac adapter if the data-link cable is connected from the base station to the thermo-hygro remote. In this case, you can still install batteries in the base station and the remote for power backup in case of ac power failure.

For additional information on the WS-2308X or to download its instruction manual, please see www.heavyweather.info. Choose your language, and then click on Products or Instructions, as appropriate.  For information on included and downloadable software available with this weather station, as well as minimum system requirements, please see the Heavyweather software page.

This unit is also compatible with Weather Display software.  Weather Display can use the data from your WS-2308CH to generate weather graphics on your PC, upload weather data to a web site, and send weather alarms to your E-mail address, your pager, or your SMS cell phone.  Weather Display software must be purchased separately.

*Please note that the com port cable included for optionally connecting the weather station to a computer is equipped with a conventional 9 pin serial connector.  Many laptop computers and some desktop computers are no longer equipped with conventional serial ports.  In this case, you can obtain a USB port to Serial port adapter cable that plugs into the USB port on your computer and offers a serial port connector to connect to the weather station.  We have tested this configuration successfully.  Please beware of one thing however.  There are actually two common types of USB ports on computers, depending upon the age of the computer, USB 1.1 and USB 2.0.  It is best to get an adapter that matches the USB port type that your computer is equipped with.  USB 2.0 adapters typically don't work on USB 1.1 ports.  USB 1.1 adapters don't always work on USB 2.0 ports.  Make sure that the adapter also works with the operating system on your computer.
