1000 Series Micro & 2000 Series Weather Station Recertification Program

All Spectrum’s products are designed to provide the highest level of accuracy, reliability and ruggedness our customers deserve. We make every effort to produce the most durable and long-lasting products available today. Over time, certain components are subject to wear and tear. Lightning, rain, snow, salt spray, and extreme temperatures all take their toll. Because of this, and because we know how important your purchase is to you, Spectrum now offers a recertification program for weather stations. Spectrum’s recertification program enables customers to send their hardware to our Aurora, Illinois facility where it undergoes a complete diagnostic check-up.

Diagnostic Check-Up

Each check-up includes a visual inspection of the complete module and all wiring.  Additionally, we update the firmware to the latest version and check accuracy levels on the rain collector, anemometer, air temperature sensor, RH sensor, and the Solar Radiation sensor.  If any components of the weather station are found not to be within the published specifications, you will be notified for recommended replacement*.  After authorization for replacement is received, each component will be calibrated and tested.

*Note: The fee for the recertification does not include the cost for any recommended replacement parts or sensors

One-Year Warranty

After the station has been recertified, a one-year warranty will apply to all parts replaced during the recertification process. 

If you are interested in having your 1000 Series Micro & 2000 Series Weather Station recertified, please contact Spectrum Technologies, Inc. at 1-800-248-8873. The turnaround time for recertification of a weather station is estimated at 14 days from the time we receive it.
