Using Ambient Falcon WS 8480 parts with the WS 5000
« on: December 19, 2022, 08:21:43 PM »
I am replacing an older Ambient Falcon WS 8480 with a new WS 5000.  I'm wondering whether I can use the thermo Hygrometer TX3110B that came with the Falcon as an additional sensor with the 5000.  The 5000 already comes with the WH32B indoor sensor for T&H.   Will the old console be able to be used as a second monitor taking signals from the 5000 array?  Thanks in advance for any help.

Iím going to say that most likely they are not compatible.  The Falcon is made by CCL Electronics while the 5000 is made by Fine Offset.

The WH32B is T, H, and Pressure.
You can add up to eight addition WH31E T&H sensors to the 5000. 
Ambient Consoles: WS-2000, WS-1900, WS-1200, WS-2902C, WS-3000-X3, WS-0900-IP(observerIP), WS-1001-WIFI
Ambient Arrays: WH65B
Ambient Sensors: WH31E(3), WH31B(2), WH32B, WH31SM(2), WH31PGW, AQIN, WH31LA(3)
Ambient Spares: WH24B(2), WH25B.
Ecowitt: HP2551BU, GW1000B(dead), GW1100B(2), GW2000B
Ecowitt Sensors: WH51, WN34BL, WN34(2), WH31, WH41, WH40
