2 06016 M show the same barometric pressure reading. The 01534DI shows a different reading.

I have three (3) 5 in 1 displays. The display model #s are: 1) Model # 06016 M,QC 3317 installed on 12/30/17, #2) Model # 06016M, QC 3617, installed on 1/27/18, #3) Model # 01534DI, QC 0916, installed on 12/9/17. Display reset on 12/27/2017. The 2 model 06016M displays show the same exact barometric pressure reading while the model # 01534DI shows a .01 different barametric reading. I think the model 01534DI is defective and want to know the steps required to repalce the 01534DI with a 06016M display. Please advise. Thank You.

Hello Charlie,

We would be happy to assist you with your weather station. Has the learning mode completed on all of the displays? If the pressure reading is off we would recommend restarting the display by removing the power when the local pressure is at 29.92. Remove the power for 2-3 minutes. This will restart the learning mode. AcuRite's patented self-calibrating weather forecasters use a unique algorithm to analyze changes in pressure and temperature over a time period (called Learning Mode) to determine your altitude. The algorithm begins with the global average pressure (29.92 inHg). The weather station then takes 4,000 readings at 12-minute increments to calculate a running average and compute the barometric pressure for your exact location. The pressure accuracy of AcuRite Self-Calibrating forecasters increases with each new reading over the Learning Mode time period. After 14 days, the Learning Mode icon disappears from the weather station screen (example pictured on left). At this point, the self-calibrated pressure is reasonably accurate (although the algorithm continues to run; 4,000 readings = 33.33 days) and the weather forecaster is ready for superior weather prediction.

The reading will be accurate within +/- 5hpa. 

The accuracy range will be within +/-0.15inHg (+/- 5mbar). For instance, if the current relative air pressure is 29.92inHg, then the unit could read within the range of 29.77inHg to 30.07inHg. If you are getting readings outside of the accuracy standard we would then initiate a warranty claim. It sounds like your readings are within the accuracy standard.
