Optional UHF Outdoor temperature transmitter Installation
To install your optional outdoor UHF temperature transmitter which will automatically
display outdoor temperature on your Climatouch thermostat simply remove the 4 screws
at the rear of the temperature transmitter remove the battery cover, insert 2 AAA alkaline
batteries and replace the cover . The transmitter will immediately begin transmitting
temperature information back to your CT03TS/217S31 Climatouch Thermostat and it will be
displayed on the main screen. It is important to locate the transmitter in a location which
is not too distant from the thermostat; maximum range is typically 40 feet. For the first 10
minutes after the batteries have been inserted the outdoor temperature transmitter will
transmit a signal every 10 seconds as can be seen by the flashing dot to the left of the
outside temperature display on the thermostat screen . It is important to locate the
transmitter in an area where this dot flashes to insure that the location that you have
selected is one which insures good communications back to the thermostat. After 10
minutes the outdoor temperature transmitter will only update once every 20 minutes. If
you notice that your outside temperature does not display reliably and disappears from
the Climatouch thermostat screen it may be necessary to relocate the transmitter in an
area closer to the thermostat.
