Configuring A WindSonic Sensor

WindSonic Option 1:
Connect to a PC either directly to an RS232 serial port, or via a serial to USB converter. The WindSonic may be configured using a terminal emulation package such as HyperTerminal set to a baud rate of 9600.
NB: Flow control must be set to 'None'

WindSonic Option 2 or 3:
Connect to a PC RS232 serial port, or via a serial to USB converter, as per Option 1 but with the baud rate set to 19200.

After approximately 3 seconds the unit will respond with Safe Mode.
