Plate style temperature and humidity sensor for Ecowitt WH65 or WS69 sensor array. Also suitable for a number of Ventus and GARNI products.
Please ensure that your existing sensor is this plate style part as per the image to ensure compatibility.
Ensure that you do not handle the sensor with bare hands to prevent contamination.
As commented by a previous reviewer the Ecowitt wh65/WS69 sensor can be fitted to a Watson W-8681-pro11 weather station if the ribbon cable is lengthened. This is reasonably straight forward providing you are competent at soldering and weather seal the connections. Make sure that you connect each wire in the correct order. Also be careful when unplugging and plugging in the new sensor as the sockets on the pcb are not strongly attached and can rip off.
It would be great if Weather Spares ltd could supply suitable spare parts for the Watson units.
I had a Ventus W830 with -- for outdoor temp and humidity. This item resolved the issue. Great service, fast postage and great product
The Temperature / Humidity Sensor in my Watson W-8681-PROII Weather Station had recently failed, forum searching for a replacement hadn't provided any results, I also contacted a well known Amateur Radio Retailer, located north of the M25, who advertises Weather Stations but doesn't sell any spares for them.
I had bought a HP2551 from Weatherspares.co.uk previously, so a quick search produced the WH65/WS69 Temp / Humidity Sensor, a email to Adrian at Weatherspares, confirmed that it should work with the Watson unit.
On arrival I plugged the new WH65 into the faulty Watson Wx Station CPU board and it worked OK, when reassembling the Watson unit, I found that the WH65 Sensor 4 core ribbon cable was too short to be installed permanently, so I lengthened it using the old Ribbon cable from the U/S Watson Temp Sensor using a Soldering Iron and some heatshrink.
The Watson unit has now been boxed up and is currently on test in the Garden, prior to re-installing on my commercial site.
