The WeatherRack sensors contain no active electronics. The sensors use sealed magnetic reed switches and magnets to take readings. A voltage must be supplied to each sensor to take a reading.
To Set North on Wind Vane
North is the screw hole on the base (without the tab).
On newer units, there is a tiny little S near the top of the round base of the wind vane and a small N on the other side.
