*When the wind speed is less than 2 m/s (4.6 MPH) and/or air temperature is below 0°C (32°F),

wind, temperature, and relative humidity readings will be less accurate.

**Wet conditions include moisture, rain, frost, dew, snow, ice and/or sea spray in the wind channel.

***Temperature and relative humidity reports invalid during heater operation.

****Airmar has made the address claiming modifications to enable compatibility with the ISO 11783

communication protocol for the agriculture industry – that is based on the SAE J1939 protocol.
