Table of Commands available for TEMP08 - V2.24 and higher
Commands and parameters are not case-sensitive
Using the SET Command
The SET command has multiple parameters.
Update Interval determines the time between sensor readings. Set to 0 to stop polling. Enter the time in decimal minutes.
F or C Display determines how temperature readings are displayed. Enter F for Fahrenheit or C for Celsius.
Serial # Display - set to Yes if you want TEMP08 to display the 1-wire ID of all sensors.
Wind Dirn Reverse - set normally to N. Set this to Y if you accidentally installed the wind direction PCB upside down in your weather station OR if you want to display wind direction as the FROM direction instead of the TO direction.
Set Clock - input the current day (Sunday = 01, Saturday = 07), hour, minute and second. Hours are expressed in 24 hour (military) format only.

DIS output explanations
Sensor numbers do not necessarily match up with the output from the regular sensor output readings. This is intentional. The sensor numbers in the DIS output are the memory locator and are used by numerous commands (the <sensorid> parameter shown in the instruction set). The sensor numbers in the scan output are sequential numbers for each type of sensor.
An OK will be displayed following the sensor type to indicate that the Cyclic Redundancy Counter (CRC) checksum of the sensor's serial number is good. If the serial number has a bad CRC, an NG will be displayed. The checksum is validated during the output of the sensor display.
Letters following the DS2423 and DS2438 indicate the TYPe of sensor equipped. This is a manual input and will be set following first discovery of the sensor via the INI command, and also following a power-up of the TEMP08 for the DS2423 sensors that do not have built-in battery backup (DS2438 sensors of any type will retain their TYPe setting through a power down). The letters designate the sensor type per the following table.
Following a display of the sensors installed, the output of the DIS display then shows the TEMP08 settings that you entered via the SET and other commands.
The TMP Output Display
The example above shows a typical output from the poll cycle. The day and time are displayed followed by the results of the output from each sensor.
